Besides the beautiful icon, LiveView is a remote screen viewing application for the iPhone intended to help designers create graphics for mobile applications. The site suggest three good uses:
FOR VISUAL DESIGNERS — Develop pixel–perfect graphics for the iPhone and iPad quickly and easily with a live view of your canvas/artboard while you work.
FOR INTERACTION DESIGNERS — With your iPhone or iPad tethered via WiFi, you can interact with software prototypes and demos running on your Mac to communicate and iterate your concepts quickly.
FOR EVERYONE — If you’ve ever needed to press a button from afar or wished that you could take a piece of your monitor with you across the room, this app may prove useful from time to time.
Inspired by and created to support the vibrant prototyping culture at IUAV.
There are two parts to the application. App that runs on the iPhone and desktop app you can download here. LiveView works very similar to VNC clients and servers except instead of viewing the whole screen you move the iPhone image on the screen to isolate an area you’d like to view on your iPhone. Very nice indeed.
