Great, but one key flaw
The application does not work when the computer/iPhone are on different network subnets, which would be the standard scenario for the workplace. While my laptop is connected via a wired cable, the iPhone is on a wireless network on a different subnet. The subnets are routable, but the application doesn't search for the phone, and setting up an ad-hoc wireless connection each time is not ideal. I hope an update resolves this soon.
Update: I connected both the laptop and iPhone to the secure wireless at work and the app still does not work. It only works on my home wireless or via ad-hoc. We need to know what ports the app uses so that they can be opened on the firewall (although it should be using the default http/80 port).
Extremely useful app

I love this application. I was about to pay a lot more money for an external keypad when I found this sweet little app. Now for $1.99 I have a number pad that is in my iTouch and have no need for yet another gadget. I work from home one day a week on financial reports etc and needed to have a number pad. This was the perfect solution. It was easy to install and it not only works in Excel but also in Word and I am discovering in other apps as well. I have VM Ware and it also works great on the Windows side of my Macbook pro. I have been using it now for over a week and have had absolutely no problems. It has really increased my productivity when working from home. I highly recommend it to anyone that needs this functionality and works with numbers a lot.
Great - Better than expected
Really great app to use in every application on my MacBook. Thought it might be a bit tight on the iPhone screen but i works great with two fingers for the numbers and one for the keys on the far right. Will use it all the time.
