Easiremote – Use your iPad to control your Interactive Devices

If you follow my tweets then you will have seen me tweeting about the up and coming SMART Notebook iPad App. You might also have seen me asking questions of my Promethean and Easiteach contacts to see if they had any plans for apps of their own.
