Rovio Driver App Now Available for iPhone

Ever experienced a time when you could actually have your cake and eat it too?  When you could get a chance to play with two of the awesomest gadgets ever at the same time, without having to put down either one?

WowWee did a great favor to iPhone users with their built-in iPhone control application - and feeling inspired, one Rovio fanatic decided to create one of his own!

Enter "Rovio Driver," the new application available from Bertrand Leroy on the iPhone App Store. With a quick download and a few settings, you'll be up and running in no time. 

With Rovio Driver, you can control your Rovio using the iPhone's built in accelerometer and watch its camera using a much larger view than the standard app.  In addition, there are also controls for the head position and rotation.

We're hoping that Bertrand continues to update, improve, and polish this awesome new app for Rovio - stay tuned to RoboCommunity for the newest discussion!

Yeah I finally got it to work on my ipod touch. It doesn't work well though. But thanks.

Hey you wouldn't know where you can find the extra beacons for the Rovio do you? No one knows where to find them.
Thanks again,

You must have set a login / password when you did the setup of your Rovio, and the app needs these credentials as well to connect.

Rovio Driver works GREAT! I have all major software for Rovio on the computer and this App outshines then all. As far as I can tell, there are a few options lacking, but they are not show stoppers if you have a computer handy. There is no "Set Home" and no "Reboot" options. Also I haven't found out how to save a picture other than take a snapshot of the screen. Other than that, it is a quality piece of software and works without flaw. BTW, for those who don't know to take a snapshot of the screen, hold down the main button on the bottom of the IPhone (I don't know what it is called), but hold it down and then tap the "On/Off" button on the top right edge of the Iphone. The camera sound will be heard and the photo will be stored in the camera roll. Also, I purchased my Rovio from a person on Craig's List. He said that the battery was no good. I conditioned the battery by charging it at 500ma overnight using a power supply. Then, I ran Rovio for a while and discharged the battery a little. Then, I charged it again a three amps for one hour. I can now run Rovio until I get tired running it. I know that's off topic, so, getting back to Rovio Driver, It's a very good App. :>) Old_Tex
