Re Universal Remote Control
By NewKinetix, LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
IMPORTANT: You must purchase the Re™ IR Accessory from the NewKinetix website or other retailer for this App to control devices.
The Re Application and Accessory turn your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch into a universal remote control. Control your TV, Cable or Satellite Box, DVD player, Audio Receiver and other home entertainment devices using infrared.
The Re Universal Remote Control Application organizes all of your remote controls into your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with a consistent, easy-to-use interface. Plug the Re Accessory into your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch and you’re ready to go. The Re does not require complicated WiFi setup. IR is the fast “native language” of your devices so there is no communications latency.
PORTABLE – Take the Re with you from room to room in your house. You can take it to work, the neighbors, or the health club. Take it anywhere you want to control entertainment devices.
IR DATABASE – The Re Accessory contains the codes for most popular AV devices. Set up devices quickly without connecting to the Internet. The database allows the Re to replace lost or damaged remotes.
LEARNS NEW CODES – The Re learns buttons or full remotes to extend the database.
EASY SETUP – Create replicas of your Device remotes and create Activity remotes to “Watch TV” or “Watch a DVD” in minutes. The Re Application automatically creates remotes you can edit to fit your preferences in button appearance and layout.
CUSTOMIZABLE – Button images, layout, labels, background image and color are user controlled. Folders allow more buttons per remote without scrolling.
FULL FEATURED – Build Favorites Lists for your TV channels. Define “Macros” to automate playback of any button sequence. Copy Devices or Favorites from Room to Room to speed setup.
SHARE SETTINGS – You can share all or part of your setup with another iPhone, iPad or iPod touch via Bump or email.
VALUE – The Re Accessory is lower in cost and easier to use than WiFi and Bluetooth solutions, and is not tied to a specific location. The included IR code database makes the Re more flexible and easier to set up than learning-only remotes. The Re and your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch offer an exceptional performance advantage over traditional universal remote controls.

Minor problem fixes
User interface improvements
Very impressed, although a few problems
I received this as a gift for Christmas this past year. I usually don't post reviews very often but I wanted to share that my experience with this app has been great. HUGE selection of brands and models to choose from. I have set it up for eight different electronic devices and have yet to have a problem with any of them. A CD player/clock radio that i have (Cambridge Soundworks 765i) is not currently listed under the supported brands. I have yet to contact the company regarding this, although I have read other reviewers that said that once they contacted the company with a similar problem, they took care of it and added it to the database within a week's time.
Works perfectly. Had to read the manual and watch some videos on their website. Was able to program devices not listed. Took a few days to really figure it out. Now it turns on everything with one touch. Has the strength of a regular remote. We use it with our iPads and our iPhones. We love ours - we have two. The only issue I had was I have a newer phone and had to buy the adapter which was fine. Highly recommend.
Does not work well at all.
I use a Logitech universal remote that works wonderfully but has sustained some damage due to some drops off of the arm of the couch. I looked to this app as a low-cost replacement. It does not work well at all. It won't recognize my Yamaha A/V receiver, you can't program the activities with the necessary specificity to have one touch activity start-up (such as having the input on the tv automatically switch to the appropriate device when switching from playing on the xbox to watching the cable box). They should take a look at how Logitech does it and copy it, because this is useless to me as it is.
