    Default Remote Buddy Springboard Launcher
    The latest version of Remote Buddy allows you to control iTunes (among other things) with an iPhone via an AJAX interface.

    This is a simple launcher that opens Remote Buddy's interface. Just edit the "Info.plist" file to reflect your IP address.

    Included are a sized icon and "Loading Remote Buddy library" splash screen.

    PLEASE click everyone's "Thanks" buttons...they are begging for it.

    Sure! Have you made sure that AJAX is enabled in Remote Buddy and that you've changed the IP address in the included file?

    Yes, and no dice. I'm convinced my iPhone is possessed.

    Hmm...did you open the port (most likely 8888) in your Firewall (assuming yours is on) to allows access to RB?

    Another simple question, you're connected to a WiFi network, right? Because Edge is no good for this application.

    Yes, WiFi, yes, port. Its all configured. Forget this, it isn't worth this much of my time, and besides I don't have much use for it. Thanks anyways for your help.

    No. It controls iTunes (and pretty much every other app on your Mac) VIA your iPhone using WiFi. Think of it a very robust remote control for your Mac.

    I'll let the developer's page take it from here:

    Lucky for you, there are other ways to enjoy RB without having to change any text files...just use your bookmarks!

    DL the application, right click it, choose "Show Package Contents" from the menu that pops up, and you'll have a folder full of files. Choose info.plst and open it with your favorite text editor (I use TextWrangler). Then swap your IP address in where "(Your IP Address)" is located (ditch the parentheses).

    Disco!

    Does it matter that my IP address keeps changing on Wifi or will one IP address work?

    I'm pretty sure it matters...your iPhone needs to know the IP of RB's computer to work.

    Nope...Remote Buddy (the underlying program this app uses) is Mac-only.

    You're outta luck!
