iBooks Remote

A menubar app that let's you use your Apple Remote Control (white and aluminium) to flip pages in iBooks.

Built with Node Electron

Install Binary with Homebrew Cask

$ brew cask install ibooksremote

How does it work?

The Apple Remote (white or aluminium version) first needs to be paired with your mac. Once paired you may launch the iBooks Remote application and access it via the menubar. You will see a Menubar Item that will let you connect and take control of all IR input from the remote. You will also be able to release control of the remote so you may use it for its default purpose (iTunes, QuickTime, etc).

Why?

I created this because I use my Apple Remote quite a bit. I didn't want to use the Remote App on my iPhone/iPad just to read books on my macbook's large external display.

Notes

  • I use the "dark" menubar so you may have to export some inverted icons if you use the standard menubar.
