Thanks for the replies. I will comment on some quotes below:

- Thanks. I will install the mrpeach library (I have updated my 
SVN-folder although I haven't used it in PD yet) and try your patch.

- Somehow I got the patch working once without any 
library-installation... I don't know how but now I know that it's not 
part of the normal extended because when I try to reproduce Richies 
patch PD prints "...couldn't create".

I have also downloaded and will buy OSCulator and got it up and running, 
I got it to control iTunes via Applescript (Apples native Remote app has 
issues here) and QLab. I also got LiveControl running to control ... 
Ableton Live.

My first attempt with TouchOSC and PD got a good connection too as print 
was working overtime with the xyz-axis. This was via direct connection 
via UDP from iPhone to PD. The hostname is mycomputer.local and I used 
outgoing port 8000.
