Some people have smartphones, but never get around using their complete functionality. With the iPhone for example you can get so many apps and use them in so many ways that it will boggle your brain. The Apps I want to present to you today are meant to address the age old question “Why get up when I have a remote?”

DVR Remote works with TiVo series 3 boxes and turns the iPhone or iPod touch into a remote to be used by TiVo fans all over the world. Compared to a classical remote, the iPhone offers the same functionality, but comes with a bonus: it is easier to enter text content with the iPhone than with the remote. The app will set you back just $2.99 and takes a bit of time to set up, but once you are done it will be more than worth it.

Meme Incorporated has come up with an app that reminds me of the movies where people would turn the lights on and off by simply clapping their hands. The Snapper is somewhat similar: just place the iPhone in a convenient location, clap your hands, and the app will get the iPhone to take a picture. TheSnapper only costs $0.99 and will come in handy when you need to take a group picture that nobody wants to miss out on by operating the iPhone’s camera.

When you will want to printout those photos you might want to give Air Photo a shot. This $1.99 iPhone app lets you print out photos without having to transfer them to your computer first. All you have to do is download Air Photo Server for free, get the Air Photo app from iTunes, and you’re set.

If you would like to remote control your Keynote presentations with your iPhone, then take a look at Stage Hand.
