How excited would you be if you could eliminate the pile of remotes on the coffee table and control your home theater with your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch? iRule can do that and more. It's a cloud-based universal remote control app for audio/video enthusiasts and custom installers that's easy to set up and fun to customize. It's also the remote that keeps growing with your changing technology and needs.
iRule doesn't just control audio and video gear. It also controls lighting, shades and blinds, network cameras and security systems. Also available are simply drag-and-drop modules for rich interactive control of Sonos HiFi systems, and Onkyo-Integra receivers and processors with internet radio and network streaming. There's even a new module to control Z-Wave lights, dimmers, and locks with a Leviton Z-Wave controller.
Configure and customize your remote with your Mac or PC and iRule Builder, our online application. With Builder, you drag-and-drop your images and commands, upload your own custom graphics, and share content other iRule users. Builder includes a large database of all the most common consumer electronics equipment. To try iRule Builder, visit our website at http://www.iruleathome.com/try-buy-irule.html
* Please note that most users' systems will require a hardware gateway to control consumer electronics devices that do not support direct network control. iRule is compatible with Global Caché products, available from our website at http://www.iruleathome.com

Love this app!
I have been using this app since it was released, and they have incrementally made it better and better. Having said that it does take a good amount of time and patience to get setup, but once you do it is solid. My wife and 6 year old have no problems using the screens that I have created. My son can even explain it to his grandparents.
I have a multiroom av matrix that was incredibly complicated to setup, but like I said you can use this system to make it easy for the rest of your household to use.
Some features broken on iOS 7
I've been using iRule for a couple of years now, and it has been great. I love the custom screens and macros, and the web-based Builder software is continually getting more features.
Since iOS 7, however, things have been less than stellar. Almost everything works as expected, except my lighting control. I use a Vera to control a dozen or so ZWave switches, and they have all disappeared! I've contacted support, and they are usually very helpful and responsive. In October/November, after all my lighting controls vanished, they told me it would be fixed in an upcoming update.
2 months later, nothing. Once this issue is resolved, I will happily update the review to the 5 stars that the app deserves.
This is rubbish
Does work as mentioned.
