I have a program called snatch that lets me create custom remotes to control my Media Center HTPC.

I can create custom themes for it, such as shown here. (Well not now since I don't have 10 posts, but coming soon).

Can net remote do something like this as well? I basically just create a graphic and then map the keys to it with keyboard commands.

I really like Snatch, but I don't think they are continuing to develop it and the server tends to lose connection a lot.

I'm afraid the current version of NetRemote doesn't work on the iPhone, sorry.

I saw they may be working on it?

Assuming an iPhone version came out, would it have this type of capability? Is there a video the current approach in action to give me an idea of what it can do?

The iPhone version (if we get that far) will have the same capabilities as normal NetRemote with the possible exception of Lua scripting - still not sure about this.

We don't have many videos at present - there's this one http://www.promixis.com/screencasts/sc1/ that may be of interest

Sorry it's taken so long to reply - I've been installing Windows 7 on my main workstation.

From your link, it looks like Girder might be able have the capability to map an image like this?

I created the above image in PPT and within the iPhone snatch app could map it in just a few minutes. I have to admit I am not very familiar with Girder and it seem significantly more complex to do same thing. Granted you get more flexibility, but is there such a thing as a simple mode?

Also, do you plan on incorporating a trackpad and keyboard inside the app? Otherwise, I would think you are really limiting yourself.
