This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app requires iWavit hardware in order for it to work. The iWavit adds extra hardware capabilities to the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. See www.thinkoptics.com for more details.
The "iWavit Sky" app turns the iPhone (or iPad or iPod touch) into an IR Remote for controlling Sky TV setup boxes.
The iWavit introduces the concept of "Virtual Remotes". iWavit apps are virtual metaphors for Real Remotes. The layout of the buttons is similar to the remote that comes with your Sky TV box. 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 in your living room!
2. Buttons are large and easy to hit, and easily seen in the easily seen in the dark.
3. You can use the iWavit USB Dongle & IR Lightbar as a wireless IR Extender. This means you can be upstairs and still control your TV downstairs. The RF range is over 300 ft.
All buttons on this remote have pre-programmed IR codes, but you can also reprogram them. You might, for example, prefer to have the Volume buttons control your surround sound system or TV, instead of your Sky TV box.
When you press the buttons on the iWavit Sky app, 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 Sky TV IR Remote. On top of this, it is possible to use the (optional) iWavit USB dongle & IR Lightbar as an "RF-to-IR Extender". These are part of the iWavit Premium or BLUETOOTH Smart iWavit Blast! products. (Note: You do not need WiFi or need to worry about network passwords at all). 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, without requiring line of sight. No more need to point at the device to control.
Pressing the HOME button in the lower left of the front screen will take you to the app called iWavit Flow, if it is installed. This app provides a convenient cover-flow way to navigate between iWavit apps.
The "iWavit Sky" 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.
