This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app requires iWavit hardware. It will NOT work without it!! See www.thinkoptics.com for more details.
The "iWavit Dish" app turns the iPhone (or iPad or iPod touch) into an IR and RF Remote for controlling your Dish Network Satellite Box, specifically the DISH VIP722 DVR, and other similar boxes.
The layout of the buttons is similar to the remote that ships with Dish Network Satellite box. Scroll left-right between 4 screens to get to other buttons.
There are a few notable benefit of iWavit Virtual Remotes over a traditional remotes:
1. Buttons are large and easy to hit,
2. Buttons are easily seen in the dark, so no need to turn on the lights in the room just to adjust the volume,
3. No remote control clutter in your living room,
4. With the iWavit RF-to-IR Extender feature you can extend your range to over 300 ft.
5. Every button on this app is reprogrammable using the iWavit Attachment learning feature, so you can control other devices as well with this app.
When you press the buttons on the iWavit Dish screen, IR signals will be emitted from the front of the iWavit. You will be able to use this virtual remote app much as you would a regular Dish IR remote.
Furthermore, in the iWavit Dish app you can select which iWavit device to control. For example, you can opt to have all IR signals blasted from the iWavit USB dongle & IR Lightbar instead of directly from the iWavit Attachment on the iPhone.
Both the iWavit Premium and iWavit Blast! products include the long range RF control of the powerful IR blaster. With this selected, the Dish Network Receiver does not even have to be in direct line-of-sight to the IR Lightbar because the Lightbar will light up the room with invisible IR signals when it blasts. With the iWavit Blast! and Premium products you can even control your electronic devices that are hidden away inside of cabinets or in a different room.
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 the many iWavit apps that are available.
The "iWavit Dish" 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". With this app you can create remotes, download remotes, upload remotes to share them. You can even create macros for embedding multiple functions inside a single button. You can also use the app to control PCs/Macs and PS3 using USB Keyboard strokes or through the patented DirectPointing air-mouse technology built into the iWavit. If you are looking for a smart TV Guide app, then try the "iWavit TVAid" app.

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
I woke up one morning and could not find the remote getting a little frustrated I decided to download an app so I could still watch tv and I came to this and I thought that this would be a good app to download I downloaded it and junk I did everything it said but still it does not work so I would not even think to buy the pro
Waist of money (SCAM)
My wife got this for me for my birthday. Bought the extra parts, she thought it would be cool, I could use my phone to operate the tv and such things. WRONG!!! I put everything together, installed it and nothing, it didn't do a dam thing! I must have tried a dozen times, called support and still nothing. My opinion this thing is a scam.
I only downloaded this to tell people that Dish has their own app called Dish Anywhere that has a controller feature that will work on your phone without requiring an extra part. Just go get that app instead.
