riimo converts your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch into an IR-beaming universal remote control. This 3.5mm dongle supports all the IR remote control enabled devices and comes with a working range of up to 15 meters. It is compatible with the IR function of most iOS and Android smartphones. With this single plug-in Infrared (IR) adapter, you can enable your Apple device to beam out a near-limitless array of IR commands. All that’s needed is the 3.5mm dongle, the latest iPhone OS, and the free riimo Apps. Once you set it up, you can use it to control your TV, AV receiver, Blu-ray player and whatever else is lucky enough to be in your home theater rack that supports IR dictation. Better still, the app allows users to customize the way they control their gear, with full multitouch and accelerometer support complementing the ability to add (soft) macro buttons. The riimo IR transmitter plugs into the 3.5mm headphone jack of your phone or tablet, and works with the iR Universal Remote Control app. Because the transmitter is attached to your phone, you do need line-of-sight from your phone to the device you want to control.
