Off Remote lets you turn off, lock, sleep, log off and restart a PC or Mac directly from your iDevice.
Forgot to turn off the office computer? No need to get up. Want to stop the kid's marathon computer sessions? Do it remotely.
If you want to know whether the computers in your house are turned off - you can check from your iDevice.
If you use a computer to stream videos or audio to your living room, then you can turn them off without getting out of the sofa.
If you forget to turn things off at night then you can turn them off from wherever you are in the house.
It's simple to use. It's very handy. It saves you the effort of walking to your computer!

“Off is a brilliant yet simple app that allows me to easily control the power state of all the PCs in my house. It also lets me check to make sure that when my daughter assures me she turned her computer off, that she really did.”
“..it's the least you can do for the environment.” App Of My Eye.
“Very simple and easy to setup. When I say simple I didn't have to set anything up. Just install the server and the app picked up my laptop straight away. All the buttons worked, it's amazing. No more having to get out if bed to turn the laptop off for the night.”
“such a simple program yet it's so handy at work and home I use It every day! and it's cool to be able to turn ur pc/mac off from your iPhone or iPod :D”
“We often end up PC's being left on overnight and this app has helped us manage this ... We have several wireless music senders dotted around the house also which feed off the desktop PC in the dining room. I've added iTunes to the startup menu on that PC and can restart the PC using this app ... once restarted I can then switch to my iTunes remote and start listening to my music without having to tramp downstairs.”

Works ok but for one issue
So far using this app it appears to work as intended but unfortunately when trying to shut down a system a small window pops up allowing another user to cancel the shut down before it happens. I downloaded this app to log my son off his computer as he spends too much time on it but he simply cancels the request and I'm left with still powering down my wifi as the Ultimate solution
Pretty slick, but two cons
This app does what it says, and does it pretty well. One issue is that on my Windows 7 machine, it doesn't seem to "see" my PC when the PC is locked. As soon as I manually unlock it, it detects my computer and I can proceed. From there, I like it. As mentioned before, if you would write in some Wake On Lan functionality, this would be really a spectacular app. I have yet to find one that does both.
Lastly, the delayed loading of options is so annoying, but I'm sure it generates great revenue from impatient people who buy the paid app as a result. :)
Works like charm
Wish I had this for a long time , so easy to install and works great !
