The only Smart Remote you'll need!

Smart IR Remote is the only IR remote universal app for Android that you'll ever need: it's smart, with a device coverage that is huge (800000 devices, with more added daily and on request), and it's the only one that makes use of features only your phone/tablet have, that a plastic remote (like the Logitech Harmony) never will. As IR remote controls go, especially android remote controls, you'll never find one better!

Not compatible with Sony phones. Of all phones/tablets by LG, only compatible with the G3 (still in Beta, sending only, not recording)

Don't have a supported phone or tablet? Check out AnyMote Home:

Smart Remote works with any Samsung, HTC and Medion Lifetab devices with an InfraRed Blaster, and most other brand phone/tablet with an IR Blaster that runs Android 4.4 or above provided originally by the manufacturer. Even better, Smart IR Remote also works on most custom ROMs like CyanogenMod.

Smart IR Remote is an universal smart remote control that can command almost anything that receives InfraRed commands, like a TV, Set Top Box (cable and satellite box), DVD, BluRay player, VCR, Amplifier, Air Conditioner, AV Receiver, DSLR camera, etc. Better yet, you can combine your remotes into smart remotes (activities) so that on your custom remote you'll have the volume buttons to your surround system, the channel buttons to control your set top box and the display buttons to control your TV. It's the only Android universal tv remote that can do that, while controlling any other device too!

    Not only can I make a custom remote with outputs to multiple devices on one screen, but I can change tv channels in any waiting room or dmv. I love this app, the only thing I wish it had was an option to be on my lock screen with a few simple volume options or what not. It does have the option to keep the screen on, but, you know, battery life. Over all, awesome.

    Had Freezes/major delay on 4.4.4 but I'm emailed developers and they did something on their end and I reset app and now it works fine with no freezes or delay. Developers replied quickly to email. Thanks, now I can enjoy my AC while laying down.

    Does what it says, non invasive. Macros require a bit of trial and error to set up but that's to be expected with macros. ... Now if only I could surreptitiously take control of TVs more easily ;)

    Actually a very versatile and user friendly universal remote. Maybe a background choice of picture would be a nice addition. But highly recommended.

    This app has worked perfectly from the start with so many options in TV and other IR receiver applications. The few times it has hiccups, they are immediately on it and solve my problem within an hour. I could not be more happy and confident in my purchase.
