Lightbulb Blackberry to PC/Mac remote control - Salling Clicker

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone,
In case you haven't heard of the program, Salling Clicker is a phone to computer remote control application. A client is installed on the phone and the computer, and the phone is able to select music, browse pictures, control PowerPoint, check email, etc. via a Bluetooth connection. It's fantastic for a media server (which is my current use for it), but it's also fully scriptable to support pretty much anything you want. It's got some incredible features such as caller ID on the screen, pausing iTunes/Windows Media Player when a call comes in, and proximity support to detect when you return home and turn on music (or even your lights if you have an X10 home automation system).

Version 3.0 was just released last week with Windows support (it was previously a mac only app.) 90 devices are now supported, but as of now the Blackberry is not one of them. Jonas (the programmer) has checked the BB and says it is entirely possible to implement support. It's only a matter of demand. Please check out the app; I've been using it with my old Nokia 3650 for about a year and it is among my favorites.

If you want it, please go to the forums and tell Jonas you're interested. If enough people make the request, he'll be much more keen to code up a Blackberry client! There is already a thread here:
http://www.salling.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1923

So please reply to it!

I'm not at all affiliated with Salling, just a very happy user; though I'd be a lot happier not having to use a separate device! The BB is perfect for it with the high-res screen, keyboard and clickwheel.

The difference between a BlackBerry and other devices/OS's is the fact that, in order for him to do something like this, he'll have to get access to a LOT of signed files from RIM. I'm not sure what process is needed to be taken, but its not as simple as you think, especially if it involves Bluetooth access. He might want to contact RIM just to go ahead and get an overview of what will be needed on his part.

When chatting with Jonas, he said that his talks with RIM and development up in Canada comes down to the UI and bluetooth. You can make apps just fine, but the serial system on a blackberry is not good. I know that when i sync with my laptop, it thinks the blackberry is another computer and has limited serial connectivity. Mostly for the Blackberry OS to work with a software that relies so heavily on JAVA, the system just isnt supported. So, bluetooth will get better but OS is still behind. Here are some of Jonas' responses.

"I believe RIM has made some improvements in their latest OS installments. Unfortunately, they're not yet entirely standards-compliant (which would have made the Java client work, AS IS).

I hope to be able to spend the time required in a future version. Now I have to finish 3.5.

Also, it doesn't help that RIM's latest phones are not available in my locale yet.

Best.

and

"Actually, I believe they're getting the Bluetooth stuff sorted out (but when I tried it, it was kind of bug-ridden). It's their UI that need special treatment.

I can recommend the E61, but I doubt the email features will be quite as nice as in a RIM device.

Best.

This is when i was shopping for a email strong phone with symbian and considering RIM as an alternative. Basically, Symbian still rocks but the email on BB is superior (minus the stupid deleting that happens left and right)
