This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app requires the iWavit "Made for iPhone" hardware in order for it to work. It will NOT work without it!! See www.thinkoptics.com for more details.
This "iWavit LG" app will turn your iPhone (or iPod touch and iPad) into a virtual metaphor of a real IR remote for controlling new LG LCD TVs, or more specifically TV model LG55LE8500 and related models. The remote control is model AKB72914003.
This remote should be very familiar to LG owners. The button layout which similar to the remote that ships with many LG LCD TVs. Swipe left-right to flip your Virtual 3D Remote between 4 different screens (3D facets) with all the buttons.
There are a few notable benefits of the iWavit Virtual Remotes over traditional physical Remotes:
1. Virtual Remotes reduce living room clutter.
You can have a large diverse collection of remotes in one easy to find location - your iPhone.
2. The buttons are large and easy to hit.
By creating multiple screens for each remote, you can have large buttons without requiring a large bulky remote.
3. The remote is well lit.
With the iPhone lit touchscreen there is no need to turn on the lights to adjust the volume or change channel.
4. Never lose your remote.
It does not matter which remote it is. It is all in your iPhone. If you should lose it you just call the phone.
If you have the "iWavit Premium" or BLUETOOTH Smart "iWavit Blast!" products then they include the iWavit USB Dongle & IR Lightbar. With these you will also be able to blast your IR commands from the IR Lightbar instead of from the iWavit Attachment & iPhone. You do this by tapping the lower right icon on the front screen and selecting "Blast from USB dongle". The iPhone will then send all subsequent signals wirelessly to the USB dongle (plugged into any powered USB) which in turn will control the IR lightbar to emit a very strong blast from its 6 Infrared LEDs. You can be up to 100 meters away from the USB dongle. Now you no longer need to point your iPhone directly at the device you wish to control. The USB dongle will of course need to be within IR range of the device to be controlled, but it is quite poweful.
In the lower left of the front screen, there is "Home" icon. Tap this to launch the "iWavit Flow" app (if it is installed). This app provides for convenient cover-flow browsing of all your iWavit remotes, as well as all iWavit apps available on the Apple App Store.
The "iWavit LG" app is part of a family of iWavit Virtual Remotes for Major-Brand electronic devices, and PCs and Macs. For those who wish to create their own custom Remote Controls, we have created the Ultimate Remote Control app called Tabula Rasa for the iPhone and iPod touch, and Tabula Rasa HD for the iPad.

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
An App that needs third party hardware.
I didn't fully read the intro prior to downloading. The app looks decent - similar to the remote, but requires third party hardware. Better off to purchase the LG compatible and skip the trouble.
It doesn't work and if you want it works you need to buy something else.
