Ipad Apps. Universal remote control????? - 12.30.2011, 11:17 PM

Has anyone come across an app that can be a remote for your entertainment system? or an app that could make someone rich could be an app that turns your ipad into a touch screen remote control for any of your toy's, think about it, they could sell high powered receivers that can be put in all types of models, boats, cars, planes ect. The software would always be upgradable, you should be able to have a multitude of channel options, screen/controller layout options, on screen telementry and data logging and so forth, it's endless what could be customized. A fully programable remote control app that could opperate all your toy's and home entertainment needs, I want it. This kind of app would make a meal of companies like logitech and other home based remote manufactures not to mention the rc based like specktrum and fubata.

Logitech has a device that works with your home wifi and an app to do this.

Syma put out an adapter that lets you fly their infra-red helis with your iphone/pad.
To work as a TV remote you'll need an adapter, they all get signals via infra-red (afaik). That's basically what the logitech thing is, but a really nice adapter that operates through wifi.

check out AVS forum http://www.avsforum.com. Lots of people there use the I-phone/PAD for home theater apps.

I'm looking for a good GPS app that will give me speed indications. Anyone have any?

Well HP screwed the pooch with their palm acquisition. I had high hopes as web OS was supposed to be awesome. I read a recent article tough that HP may be doing an Android with Web OS and putting it out there for free. Maybe that would kick start something.

I guess Ir was the least of the OPs concerns though.

Some things are coming around like these app controlled nest thermostats.
