Front Row on Any Mac (Video, Photos)

Several readers have noted that a hacked version of Apple's Front Row application is being distributed over the internet.

This Front Row.app has been cracked to skip the remote check and should idle in the background once loaded.


Apple released Front Row as an iMac only application on October 12th. The media application allows users to manage their Videos and Songs with the new iMac's included remote control.

Many have seen this as Apple's first step into the media-PC arena. At the moment, however, Apple has only shipped Front Row with new iMacs and does not officially offer the application to non iMac-users.

A video demonstrating Front Row on a Mac Mini is shown here.
