This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app requires the iWavit hardware. It will NOT work without it!! The iWavit adds extra hardware capabilities to the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. See www.iwavit.com for more details.
The "iWavit Cox" app turns the iPhone (or iPad or iPod touch) into an IR Remote for controlling Cox Cable boxes and digital cable DVR units. Specifically, this is a "Virtual Remote" that replaces Remote Model # URC7820B00-MOT, 7055004, 003932.
The iWavit introduces the concept of "Virtual Remotes". Swipe left-right between 4 screens to get to all the buttons.
Virtual Remotes have several notable benefits over their real-world cousins:
1. Get rid of clutter from your living room table!
2. Buttons are large and easy to hit, and easily seen in the easily seen in the dark.
3. Increase your range to over 300 ft, using the optional iWavit USB dongle & IR Lighter.
When you press the buttons on the iWavit Cox app, IR signals will be emitted from the front of the iWavit Attachment.
All buttons on this remote have pre-programmed IR codes, but you can also reprogram them with the iWavit Attachment.
On top of this, it is possible to use the (optional) iWavit USB dongle and IR Lightbar as a "RF-to-IR Extender". This hardware is part of the "iWavit Premium" and BLUETOOTH Smart "iWavit Blast!" product bundles. (Note: You do not need WiFi or need to worry about network passwords at all during setup). Now when you press a button, you can have IR signals be emitted from the Lightbar instead of the iWavit Attachment. Why? The IR lightbar is about 10x stronger than a normal remote control. This means it can control almost anything in the same room. No more need to point at the device to control, and the RF range is about 300 ft.
Pressing the HOME button in the lower left of the front screen will take you to the app called iWavit Flow. This app provides a convenient cover-flow way to navigate between all the many available iWavit apps.
The "iWavit Cox" app is part of a family of iWavit Virtual Remotes for Major-Brand electronic devices. For those who wish to create their own custom Remote Controls, we have created the Ultimate Remote Control app called Tabula Rasa (or Tabula Rasa HD for the iPad). With this app you can create your own remotes, download remotes, upload remotes to share them, search our IR database or learn IR codes directly from your old IR remotes. You can even create macros for embedding multiple functions inside a single button. Another unique feature, is that you can use the iWavit for Plug & Play control of your computer using wireless USB Keyboard strokes, voice control, or through the patented DirectPointing air-mouse technology built into the iWavit.

What's New in Version 7.1
+ Fixed bug where after learning an IR code with the iWavit Attachment, the TEST button did not work
Must have accessory on iPhone
The fact that you need an accessory to attach to your cell phone in order for the remote to work...it is unacceptable. This app doesn't make sense and this accessory needed defeats the purpose of downloading the app
The requirement of an accessory kills the whole point of this app. Is it more convienent to plug something extra into your phone, or just reach for the actual remote? Yeah, me too...
I was sick and the remote was in the kitchen so I got my phone out of my pocket and turned on the app and all it did was make ripples
