Description

OK: I give up. What is it?

Well, all by itself, Controls does almost nothing, but with your help, it will do almost anything!

WARNING! If you are not a computer programmer, DO NOT BUY this program! If you cannot write AppleScripts, DO NOT BUY THIS PROGRAM! It will not magically add attachments to your email; it will not sort your iTunes. What it does is run AppleScripts THAT YOU WILL WRITE FOR IT. It is a tool, not a regular fun app. It's intended for a very small, skilled audience, not the general public.

Controls runs on your iPad, and controls programs on your computer. More specifically, it controls AppleScripts and Automator actions that you write.

And since you write them, it can do whatever you like!

(Because of this, it is -strongly- recommended that you visit the website and download and read the instructions before purchasing this product. This is NOT plug-and-play software!)

So, if you're Ford, you can control and monitor all those Mac-Mini's on your assembly line.

If you're a doctor, you can access patient records and charts.

If you're a home-owner with X10®, you can open your garage door, or turn off the iron.

If you're a plant manager, you can check your inventory.

If you're a publisher, you can adjust the column width on page 27 of the next issue.

If you're a DJ, you can run a light board.

If you're an engineer, you can mix music.

If you're a teacher, you can access student records.

If you're a lecturer, you can control a slide show.

if you're a field-rep, you can show demonstration movies.

Now, frankly, that's like saying "if you're a carpenter, you can build a house, or a dog shed, or a cabinet or a car-port" ... because it's you that's writing the script.

Controls comes with a server to run the programs you write, and templates to make sure you can report back the results, for display on the iPad screen. It works on your local area network, using wifi.

You can name the buttons; assign default values; and pass information to your scripts (such as a patient's name, or an inventory number.)

Controls can display text, graphics, HTML and even movies as replies.

There are three included layouts, one with screen real estate devoted to larger result-replies, and one with more buttons for more controls, and one with sliders. And in the upcoming version 1.1, you can not only order new ones, but we're aiming for a Windows server as well.

In short, Controls is a tool for you to use to create any controls you can think of.

CONTROLS

:
This is one of the least intuitive applications I have encountered. Unless you are a computer 'nerd,' this is an application to avoid.

I was looking for a program that would enable the user to attach a photo to an email message and came upon this. It was pricey compared to other offerings and thought it might offer that option. While it might be able to accomplish that task, only one page of instructions was attached, and that didn't even mention this as an option.

If turning your lights on or feeding the dog from a remote location is your goal this may work for you but it fell far short of my more humble expectations.

In view of the sketchy support that was made available, I doubt that my opinion would be different if it were a free offering.
