A sense of freedom and comfort may make a house a home, but, for a truly awesome home, it’s got to have a touch of entertainment. Whether you like to relax watching a DVD on your home theater or rock out playing tunes on your hi-fi system, who doesn’t enjoy a little household tech?
Since nearly the dawn of home entertainment, we’ve all been shackled by the same instrument: the remote control.
Sure, it’s loads better than constantly getting up and changing the settings manually. Still, they come with their own set of problems: the remote gets lost; it runs out batteries; or, by golly, it’s just too confusing to use.
If you’ve got an Onkyo entertainment system, remote controls are a relic of the past, a welcomingly forgotten age.
How so? With the remote app of course. This isn’t a gimmick. This app really is revolutionary. With this creative addition, you can adjust settings, control input sources, and experience content straight from your mobile device.
What separates the app is its incredible versatility. It’ll work with the tech you most likely already own. That means, no buying some novelty knock-off; no buying some yet-to-be-manufactured Onkyo smart-phone-tablet-doo-dad. Nope. The Onkyo remote app can be downloaded on just about any wireless device. Everything Apple is there – iPhone, iPod, and iPad. But, the remote app also works on Android enabled devices. That’s not enough? The app can even be downloaded to the Kindle fire. It’s just that versatile.
An intuitive interface makes is easy and fun for anyone to use. At a glance and the stroke of the finger, you can see menus for input source, network connections, and radio stations. With it, there’s no need to memorize the ins and outs of an overly complicated remote control. It couldn’t be easier.
This remote revolutionizes how you control your TV. Aside from managing your input and network connections, this app does everything you would expect from a remote and more. For example, if you’re using a smartphone, it’ll make use of the accelerometer within. This means, you can adjust tone and volume by simply tilting the remote.
As if that wasn’t enough, it’ll provide you with all the information you want. It’ll tell you if your video content is coming in standard or high definition, or it can tell you if your audio is encoded as stereo or multichannel.
Better still: it’s free.
