Salling Software AB today announced the immediate availability of Salling Clicker 3.0, a major update to its award-winning remote control software tool. The new version adds innovative new features and support for a number of new mobile phones and other handheld devices. Out-of-the-box support for products such as iTunes from Apple, EyeTV from Elgato, AlchemyTV DVR from Miglia, and Squeezebox from Slim Devices, makes Salling Clicker a great remote control for your TV watching and music listening.
“This is by far our biggest update of Salling Clicker to date,” says Jonas Salling, owner and President at Salling Software AB in the press release. “I believe Salling Clicker is the finest remote control tool around, and it is a great pleasure to be able to offer it to more customers than ever, thanks to our brand new support for devices with Java and Windows Mobile.”
For professionals, Salling Clicker’s PowerPoint and Keynote controllers gives an important edge, whether be it on the big stage or in a small meeting with clients. For home users, Salling Clicker provides a rich interface to popular applications such as iTunes and EyeTV, allowing users to see what track or channel is playing and search or browse for music.
“Salling Clicker affords you the freedom of location, thereby allowing you to focus on your clients, audience, students, or your best friends at a house party”, said Jonas Salling in the release.
In addition to Bluetooth connectivity, Salling Clicker 3.0 now offers WiFi as an alternative when a greater range is desired. Also, through its innovative new network sharing feature, the Mac version of Salling Clicker 3.0 extends the reach of Salling Clicker to other computers on a home or office network. “I think the new WiFi and sharing functionality will become a big hit with customers looking to control music streaming from a music server,” said Salling.
Unlike dedicated hardware remote controls for computers, Salling Clicker does not require additional chargers or battery purchases. More importantly, it leverages an existing hardware investment to provide unique features: in-hand access to slide notes, and attractive display of album artwork, and rich search features to find music. All this at a price lower than most dedicated hardware solutions.
Salling Clicker 3.0 is available now through Salling Software’s web site (http://www.salling.com) at a price of $23.95 (US) per user license. Windows and Mac licenses are sold separately. Upgrades from previous Mac versions are free.
Salling Clicker is compatible with many mobile phones, handheld computers, and requires WiFi or Bluetooth connectivity hardware (Widcomm’s and Microsoft’s SP2 Bluetooth stacks are supported on Windows). Mac OS X 10.3.9 and Windows XP SP1 or greater are supported. Please see http://www.salling.com for details.
