Alfred Remote Turns Any iOS Device Into Remote Control For Mac


Today, Running with Crayons announced a new app called “Alfred Remote” which turns an iPad or iPhone into a remote control for your Mac.

The app allows users to control various aspects of their Mac including the ability to launch apps and control their screensaver. The company also allows users to expand into systemwide interactions with their Macs.


The Alfred app offers a Powerpack addition, which allows users to control several exclusive features for about $25. Some of the additional features include controlling iTunes playback, copying and pasting between your Mac and iOS device, and even entering commands in Terminal.

In order to use all the features of the app, users are required to install Alfred 2 for Mac and Alfred Remote for iOS, and have both devices running on the same Wi-Fi network.

Alfred 2 for Mac and the Powerpack additions are available for download from the company’s website. Alfred Remote for iOS is available to download from the App Store for $4.99 and requires any iOS device running iOS 7.1 or later.
