    remoteMouse is an application which allows you to use your iPhone as both a wireless mouse and nearly fully functioning keyboard with your laptop. It works pretty well and I use it often.

    I'm wondering if there's an application which I'm unaware of which enables one to do the reverse: use your laptop as a controller for the iPhone.

    I've just hooked up my iPhone to my tv via HDMI and it would be cool to be able to wirelessly control it from my laptop. I'm really not the laziest person on earth; I have a joint/nerve condition which makes moving around pretty painful.

    Appreciate any suggestions on this, thanks.

    There are, but they are only available on jailbroken iDevices.

    Hmmm...jailbreaking voids the warranty, right?

    Yes, but a jailbreak can be undone and your warranty restored.
