When the iPhone Makes a Perfect TV Remote?

When the iPhone Makes a Perfect TV Remote?
Author - Mark Anderson


I'll start off by saying that I agree 110% with the article from our friends at DSI Entertainment on the subject of iPads, etc. as remotes: 5 Reasons Why I Love my iPad but Hate it as a TV Remote Control. In general, I think they're terrible. I need hard buttons, don't want to be blinded by the light, and don't want the whole Swipe and Wait experience.

I'm not easily impressed, but on a recent trip to New Orleans, I was pleasantly surprised to discover a case where the iPhone was way better than the TV remote.

I was staying at the Inn on Bourbon Street (note to self: take earplugs next time). I got into the room and flicked on the TV for some white noise while I was working. On the welcome/please-buy-an-overpriced-movie screen, there was a note about an App to control the TV. What the heck, I'll check it out, I thought.

The hotel room remote is the filthiest thing in a hotel room. The iPhone screen probably has its own set of germs, but at least they are mine

Not bad.

I think what makes it work that it's integrated into the hotel's system.

Very true

I've never been mistaken for a mathematician but I am almost certain one can never attain 110% agreement. What's wrong with just stating 100%?

Can you please tell the official site to download this app. I tried to google but got some unsafe unofficial links to download it. Thanks
