    Hey guys,

    I've googled and wasn't really able to find what I was looking for.

    I'm looking to be able to control my Mac from my iPhone using Bluetooth. As an example, I was on a trip over the weekend and hooked up my Mac to the flatscreen in the hotel room so I could watch Netflix. Since my Mac was under the tv and I was chillin' in the bed, I'd have to get up every time I wanted to select a different movie/TV show. I had downloaded Rowmote from the App Store but it had to be connected via WiFi, along with an app being installed on my MBP. While it had the functions I was looking for (control the cursor from my iPhone), it was very laggy but I used it for the time being. I've looked at some other apps but they all require either WiFi or I need to tether my Mac via Bluetooth in order for it to work. Not really fond of having to do this.

    So my question is, are their any apps that I can control my MBP from my iPhone via Bluetooth? Any suggestions would be appreciated. TIA
