Nial at has announced the launch of final versions of their Windows 7 Media Center and Windows Phone 7 applications:

Big Screen ‘byRemote’ – for Windows 7 Media Center v1.0 *Final Release*

*free* ‘BASIC EDITION’ Available now

With Big Screen ‘by Remote’ – you can now access your Windows 7 Media Center EPG from just about anywhere. Offering an XHTML Mobile Phone Interface (compatible with most mobile phone browsers) – and a great looking Silverlight v4 User Interface (for access via almost any Internet browser including both PC’s and Mac’s) – By Remote allows you to browse the EPG, schedule Program and Series recordings at the click of a button (or the swipe of your finger) and manage your recorded TV Files.

Featuring almost ‘zero touch’ configuration and setup – you can get up and running in almost no time with By Remote on any Windows 7 Media Center PC. By Remote runs in the background on your machine (as a Windows Service) – and allows you to use it from any machine inside or outside your house (or mobile phone) – even if you’re not logged on.

… and the big news that you’ll be really happy to hear is that we’ve also decided to make the ‘Basic Edition’ of byRemote available completely for free (that’s right – nothing to pay – and it never expires). The Basic Edition contains most of the functionality you’ve seen in the beta versions of byRemote. A ‘Pro Edition’ will be made available in the future with some exciting new features and will be available for purchase.
