  • Remotely access your home network, audio, and video, and even control your desktop
  • Develop native applications for the iPhone and iPod touch on Linux, Windows, or Mac
  • Check email, receive MMS messages, use IRC, and record full-motion video
  • Run any application in the iPhone's background, and mirror its display on a TV
  • Make your iPhone emulate old-school video game platforms, and play classic console and arcade games
  • Integrate your iPhone with your car stereo
  • Build your own electronic bridges to connect keyboards, serial devices, and more to your iPhone without "jailbreaking"
