Get blasting with Smart IR Remote for HTC One / Samsung Galaxy S4


Do you want to make use of the IR blaster in your HTC One / Samsung Galaxy S4, but the stock app doesn't do it for you? Well, 'Color Tiger' have a solution for you. At a price.

Coming in at a slightly eye watering £6.42 for either device, Smart IR Remote allows you to create and customize an unlimited number of remotes which can control an unlimited number of devices. In addition, a number of smart features such as auto-mute on call or dynamic volume (adjust the TV volume down in loud scenes and up in quiet ones) are included.

Smart Remote can control your TV, Set Top Box, Lights, Projectors, etc... basically anything that has an Infrared Receiver can be controlled by Smart Remote with the correct remote codes. One feature that does seem to be missing is remote learning - the app relies on a code database, which is a shame.

The other bad news is that despite the hefty price tag, there is no lite / trial version, so that 15 minute refund window is all you get.

Ready to give it a try? Download from the Play Store for HTC One or Samsung Galaxy S4 and let us know how you get on!

Would be a great feature to be able to pause a device when the phone rings!

Developer of Smart IR Remote here!

We'd like to tell you that we're working on a feature to allow you to pause when the phone rings (right now it only mutes).
Also, worth mentioning is that we have a VERY relaxed return policy, so if you'd like to test our app you can purchase it, and if you don't like it in a few days, we'd happily refund you!

Why does this not work with other devices?

Because you need infrared support on your phone to use it :P
