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.

In order to use OSCemote, you just need to go grab the app from the iTunes App Store and one of the various OSC applications or libraries over at the Open Sound Control site to be able to receive and interpret the messages on 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…
