Review: Apple Remote

 

Turn your iOS device into an AV command center.

Mom-friendly setup. Apple made it, so it plays nice with anything out of Cupertino

Takes a second to reconnect to the target device whenever you switch out of the app

Apple Remote

 

Control iTunes libraries and AppleTVs from your iPhone, easy-to-use interface

New Apple Remote Review

 

Apple's diminutive infrared remote control was replaced a few weeks back (along with the launch of a raft of other new hardware). The new unit leaves the old white glossy plastic look behind and adopts the brushed aluminium finish of the rest of the...

So So

 

Small Size & Carry Case. Bluetooth connectivity so no USB Port needed

Keeps switching from Media / Presentation modes. Which causes non technical individuals to go crazy. It would be nice if there was a simple switch to indicate which mode instead of hold the button but not too long or it will start Bluetooth pairing or...
