Salling Clicker 2.1 Adds Symbian Support -- Salling Software has released Salling Clicker 2.1, adding support for Bluetooth-enabled smart phones that run the Symbian operating system (see "Salling Clicker in Action" in TidBITS-694). Salling Clicker 2.1 is now compatible with the Sony Ericsson P800 and P900, Nokia 3650, 6600, and N-Gage, and the Siemens SX1. On some models, the new version of the remote-control software displays iTunes album artwork on the phone's screen for the current playing song; pen-based phones can control the cursor on your Mac. With version 2.1, Salling has also rolled-in support for Bluetooth-enabled Palm OS devices (which were previously run by a separate version of Salling Clicker). The update is a 4.2 MB download, requires Mac OS X 10.2.8 or later, and is free for existing customers; a new license costs $20. [JLC]
