Using iphone as extra monitor...so close
I don't know if this has been brought up before, but I would like to be able to use my iphone as an extra monitor for my computer. It would be useful for things such as aim, growl or any other notification based apps that don't require much space.
I've found that the program screen recycler works (http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id...screenrecycler) all it requires is a vnc app on the iphone to work.
Because it works cross network the refresh rate is a bit slow but usable for notifications that don't require speed.
The problem now is finding a vnc app for the iphone that has no overlays on the screen as well as figuring out how to set the 320x480 resolution for the extra display. I tried using SwitchResX but couldn't get it to work correctly.
Has anyone attempted anything similar?

how about having the phone display a keypad that you can set it next to your keyboard and use to input the computer
or let you add touch functionality on the computer
or have it be a physical clippad, you hit Crtl+C or the mac equivalent, and it physically shows the link or image for you until you need it.

And no, I'm not the developer

So long, MacRumors, it has been fun until recently.

Thanks for posting that program by the way. I'm an accounting major in college and using my the top line number keys on my pro doesn't work very well. I'm going to give this a shot.
