SHAPE Services sneak previews IM+, RDM+, iDisplay for iPad


SHAPE Services, who you may know from IM+ or Business Card Reader for the iPhone shared some screenshots of their upcoming apps with us, including: IM+ for iPad, RDM+ for iPad, and iDisplay.

  • IM+ is, of course, their popular instant messenger app for the iPhone scaled up for the big 1024x768 pixel iPad screen. Supports MSN, Yahoo!, Google Talk, AIM, Jabber, ICQ, Facebook, MySpace, Skype and Twitter.

  • RDM+ is Remote Desktop for Mobiles, which will let you access your PC, even through NAT and Firewalls. Just imagine sitting at your sofa with your office or den computer magically held in your iPad display.

  • iDisplay, which will follow later, lets you turn your iPad or iPhone into a an extra Mac side monitor. A universal binary, it will automatically detect if you're running it on iPad or on a smaller iPhone or iPod touch screen, and let you span your desktop to fill the extra space. Think of it as a dual display, only you don't have to buy another screen -- just use your Apple mobile!

While anything can change between now and Saturday, we hope to see at least a couple of these apps on the iPad ASAP.

Screen shots after the break!

SHAPE Services sneak previews IM+, RDM+, iDisplay for iPad


Holy crap, I totally overlooked the potential for vnc use on the ipad..... Apple should come out with their own simple vlc app for the iPad... These other companies make it really freaking complicated.

Can someone reply to me please:
I own IM pro version on iPhone an I was wondering, when I buy iPad and repurchase this for iPad will it say you have already downloaded this item or will it take money of my account?

I like the valuable data you offer for your articles. I can bookmark your blog and feature my children test up here generally. I'm rather positive they're going to be informed a lot of new stuff right here than anybody else!
