NumPad Remote 2.0

New version of NumPad Remote version 2.0 for iPhone, iPod and iPad has been submitted to Apple for review. This update requires atleast iOS 4.3 and sports completely rewritten networking protocol, which is now streaming data and offers realtime responsiveness on good WiFi connection. Apple should release it in about 6 days after testing and reviewing the update.

Because of this, NumPad Connector is now compatible only with older NumPad Remote. You will need to upgrade to new Connector 2 available here as soon as NumPad Remote gets released. Older Connector has troubles running on OS X 10.6, so we made sure this one works perfect. That means new Connector 2 is compatible with OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, 10.7 Lion and 10.8 Mountain Lion.

However due to restrictions for Mac AppStore apps, Connector 2 won’t be available through AppStore but has to be downloaded from our website. It is a proper Developer Signed application (identified developer). In case you’re running OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, make sure you allow applications from identified developers in your System Preferences / Security & Privacy, as you can see on following screenshot.

Connector 2 has more features now as well, beside Numeric Pad it supports complete remote keyboard and touchpad events, even special multimedia keys. Therefore there are more applications planned and will be supported by the very same Connector. Connector for PC computers (Windows) is in progress as well and will be announced here shortly.
