iRovio for iphone is now available in all iTunes app stores! Finally a fully functional Rovio control app for the iphone/ipad and ipod touch! Here is a quick summary:
Â•Optimized 8-direction virtual joystick for full strafing support.
Â•Full Multitouch support allows you to take turns and change camera angles while strafing for maneuverability unmatched by even the web interface!
Â•Status Bar - Displays Navigation, Wifi and Battery strengths and Docked indicator!

Â•Swipe up or down on the video stream to change camera angles.

Â•OTHER FEATURES: Go Home, Save New Home, Save Image to Photos, Email Photo, Stop, Headlight
I am new here, but not new to the robotics community. I am developing a full-featured iPad/iPhone app for controlling Rovio's over WiFi or 3G. I plan on supporting all the features missing from the current iPhone app that exists, including fine-tuned camera and turning control as well as changing network settings on the Rovio.
However I am here for any suggestions you all might have for the User Interface, or features/functions you would like to see. Please let me know what would make your Rovio easier to use from your iPad and what bothers you about other softwares?
P.S. How many RoboCommunity members have/plan on purchasing an iPad? and do you have multiple Rovio's you'd like to control or fast switch between?
Many thanks for everyone's response, I will let you know the progress!
