TV Remote contains these great features:


After adding your TV, you’re ready to go! TV Remote contains the majority of keys you’d find on the standard remote control in a clear, simple and easy to use interface. All controls that don’t fit on the screen have been added to a special menu - accessed by tapping the ellipsis icon. When tapping a key, you’ll receive haptic feedback so you know you’ve pressed it.


If you have an Apple Watch, you can take advantage of the TV Remote app for watchOS. Televisions sync via iCloud so you won’t need to re-add them on your Apple Watch. Once synced, you’ll then be able to control power, volume and channel straight from your wrist!


Add one of the four widgets to your device's Home Screen to take advantage of quick actions. You can choose from a single custom command, multiple custom commands, switching television channels or switching connected televisions.


Control your television using Siri. Setup TV Remote with the Siri Shortcuts app and you'll be able to start controlling your television with just your voice or add them as part of an automated workflow!


Adding compatible televisions couldn’t be simpler! Ensure your television is switched on and then tap the Add Television button. TV Remote will then do the rest by detecting any compatible televisions connected to the same WiFi network.


If you have more than one supported television, you can add them all to the TV Remote app quickly and simply from the television switcher menu.


All your televisions automatically sync using your iCloud account! Add on your iPhone and televisions will automatically appear on your iPad.


The app has been developed throughout to support VoiceOver & Dynamic Type users.
