Command Pi Monitors Your Raspberry Pi from Your Phone

iPhone: If you’re looking for a lightweight and simple way to monitor your Raspberry Pi, Command Pi is a utility that allows you to monitor your Pi’s memory usage, temperature, and more right from your iPhone.

A few users report crashing with the app in the iTunes reviews, but I didn’t have any problems with it on an iPhone 5s.
