SimRemote gives iPhone developers the ability to transmit, record, and playback the accelerometer and location management (GPS) data from an iPhone or iPod touch to the iPhone simulator.


As a developer, if you have any accelerometer or location manager based code in your iPhone app, you must build and run to your device each time you wish to test your code. Although Apple has made this process relatively painless, it is more time consuming than running the code in the simulator (especially if your application’s size is large).
Additionally, currently you are not able to capture screen recordings on your device. Typically a developer will use the simulator to capture the screen recordings on a desktop computer, however if the application is accelerometer or location dependent, this won’t work. Previously, the only solution is to use a video camera to capture the iPhone’s screen, which is a low-tech (and rarely high-quality) solution.
SimRemote provides a solution by creating a gateway that allows you to transmit the accelerometer and location manager data to the iPhone simulator.

NOTE: The SimRemote code libraries and desktop server application must be downloaded from the BunsenTech server at
