Iphone apps for work
Just bought a Iphone 3gs in White (looks amazing in my eyes)
Just wondering if iphone lovers out there have any "geeky" apps they use for work that may be useful to me or anybody else......
Have the RDP app nothing else that geeky
I use an RDP app, as well as a couple of the VNC ones.
Also, 1Password can be handy as a secure repository for noting down passwords etc - but this app makes a lot more sense if you have 1Password on the Mac to sync with.
on my iphone:
first of all setup with your exchange server email & calendar (share your calendar so people can see what your doing and add tasks)
Vmanage (if you have VMWare Virtual servers)
VNC (free) VNC App
iRdesktop (free) RDP App
iNet Network Scanner App
SNMPmon (SNMP Monitor I use it with printers for toner levels/ and servers to monitor drive space)
MTelnet (Telnet app, to access those non gui options)
PlugPlayer (control UPNP Media clients and servers)
WirelessHD (Wireless Hard Disk access files on your iphone through a webbrowser)
Skype (works even through our filtering proxies)
RDP - remote desktop
VNC - remoting
Ping Lite - ping, tracert
Air Mouse - amazing mouse/keyboard/wifi combo
Discover - drop files onto the iphone over wifi
Speed Test - speedtest.net app
iSipSimple - Wi-Fi VOIP client
Magnifi - ideal for reading those pesky license numbers
Previous poster mentioning AirMouse just reminded me. Logitech Touch Mouse is new(ish) and free.
Works very well using a tiny little application installed on either a Mac or a PC. I use it as a wireless presenter now.
If you want to make your music dept and music techs jealous, there are a plethora of remote MIDI control and OSC control apps out there too, to allow remote control of Cubase transport and mixer from iPod Touch & iPhone...
Mobile sequencing for music students...
Virtual instruments to allow kids to practice basic music theory (yr7/8) at home... or for experimentation in class room...
Special needs dept...
Bloom - autistic kids particularly fond of this
And finally, I'm sure Science Dept would appreciate braking/accel/lateral-G meter for £7.50...
For personal purposes...
Reader (parses RSS & XML Feeds)
Moodagent (gadg show the other night - s'rather good - makes playlists based on mood)
Disc Space (iPhone disc space)
Battery (more precise battery meter)
eWifi (scans for wifi)
Support Center - head to Downloads, grab the UK network PDF... upload to fone with discover. Can find out where you can get on net for free on TheCloud thru-out the UK without needing to be connected to any other service first (unlike most of the WiFi Hotspot Apps on iTunes - and it's also distinctly more up to date too)
Unmentioned ICT apps...
Touchterm - SSH Client
Flashlight - handy for in back of cabs and racks
Schools in USA are using trays of iPod Touches as teaching aids in classes... UK is behind on this. Understandable in some schools tho - they'd vanish far too frequently.
used this thread today! Haaaaaaaaaandy!
Another one I now use frequently...
Server Admin - iPhone version of MAC OSX Server's ServerAdmin - covers monitoring, stop/starting, and access to all service logs.
Cisco WebEx - join WebEx conferences on the iPhone
Dropbox - sync files online and across computers
Tripcase - travel application
Goodreader - for viewing large pdf and text files
I used this to get some app's for my new iPhone 3GS in white too :) handy as i dont have an Apple Background lol
my friend released this game yesterday if your board of work apps.
