I have a few Thecus servers at home that work really well and now, managing them with a mobile phone will be easier. Thecus announced that they are putting out a free iPhone app to work with their servers.
I'd like to see an Android version and Windows Phone 7 as well, but it's nice to be able to check on the server without having to go into it. Sure, you can pull up the server via a web browser, but the app makes it look nice, clean and easy.
You can grab it from the Apple App Store now.
