Stockholm, Sweden–October 11, 2005–Salling Software AB today announces
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 large number of new mobile phones and other
handheld devices. A version for Windows XP is also available.
“This is by far our biggest update of Salling Clicker to date”, says Jonas
Salling, owner and President at Salling Software AB.
“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”,
said Jonas Salling.
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 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 Jonas 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.
