OSCemote is a cool app that lets you remotely interact with applications on your remote PC using the multi-touch screen of your iPhone or iPod Touch.

The $4.99 (USD) app sends OSC (Open Sound Control) messages over your Wi-Fi connection to your networked computer. OSC is like a modern IP-based cousin to MIDI for controlling music and other applications. OSCemote provides several interfaces for sending signals, including buttons, a multitouch x/y panel, knobs and slider controls. There’s also the ability to send x/y/z accelerometer data to your computer.

There are tons of applications ranging from a 2D/3D visual programming interface to a OSC to MIDI converter and tools for accessing the controls in your Flash apps. My favorite use so far – iPhone-controlled R/C race cars…
