This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
This app requires an iWavit iPhone/iPod attachment in order for it to work. This is a "Made for iPhone" accessory. See www.iwavit.com for more details.
The "iWavit for Dynex" app turns the iPhone (or iPad or iPod touch) into an IR Remote for controlling your Dynex TV. Specifically, it virtualizes your Dynex Model RC-401-0A remote control.
Insert the iWavit attachment into the iPhone/iPod touch and you will hear a sound indicating that the iWavit has paired successfully with the iPhone. Now you are ready to control your Dynex LCD TV.
The layout of the buttons is similar to the remote that ships with your Dynex TV. The buttons are large and easy to hit and to see in the dark. Scroll left-right between 3 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, and
3. You can have any number of virtual remotes without adding to the clutter in your living room.
4. This app support the iWavit "Wireless IR Extender" feature which can extend your range to over 100 ft (see below).
When you press the buttons on the iWavitDynex 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 IR remote. Under normal conditions you would only need to use the "Made for iPhone" iWavit Attachment which plug into the iPhone, and the iWavit USB dongle and IR Lightbar are not required, at all.
However, there is an additional feature that we have added to this app: It is possible to use the iWavit IR Lightbar as a "Wireless IR Extender". Set up is easy. You just hook the iWavit USB dongle (with IR Lightbar) into ANY powered USB socket. This can be a PC/Mac that is turned on, or it can be the back of a TV, or it can be into a USB wall adaptor or USB charger. Any USB socket with power will do. The iWavit USB dongle will automatically configure itself to act like a Wireless IR Extender.
On the iWavit Dynex app you can now choose to have all IR signals blasted from the IR Lightbar instead of the iPhone. You do this by tapping the icon in the lower right corner and selecting "Blast from IR Lightbar".
We should point out that the IR lightbar is a very powerful IR blaster with 6 LEDs. This means that the Dynex TV 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. So now you will be able to be more than 100ft away and still control your TV, and you don't even have to point at the TV.
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 Dynex" 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, search our limited 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. You can also use the app to control PCs/Macs using USB Keyboard strokes or through the patented DirectPointing air-mouse technology built into the iWavit.

What's New in Version 1.3
- Bug fix: Switching between iWavit apps on the multitasking iOS4.0+ could occasionally lock up iWavit and require that it be physically unplugged and replugged before it would work again.
- Bug fix: Would not work on iOS4.0 but would work on iOS4.1 and 4.2. Fixed.
- Added iWavit tip bar
This app is worthless. Downloaded it hoping the reviews were wrong but I deleted it within a minute. The app opens upside down and then causes my whole phone to orient the wrong way until I close everything. Once the app righted itself none of the buttons worked. It was completely worthless and a waste of time.
Believe The Reviews
The only reason this app is rated 1 is because we can't give it a Zero! It does absolutely nothing. Even the advertisements don't work. You can tap on the screen all day long with no response.
I'm surprised that Apple would allow such an app to get by their screening.
Useless piece of S...
The only reason why I put one star is because I can give it a -5.. This app is a complete waste of time I can't believe the applestore is full of this garbage apps such as this..
