Turn your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad into a universal IR remote with this simple add-on. Download the free L5 Remote app from iTunes, plug the IR dongle into your iDevice, and you’re ready to go. Presto, you have a fancy touchscreen remote that controls nearly any device that uses an IR remote. It is a learning remote, so if it doesn’t already know the IR codes for your device you can teach it.
The MSRP on this is $59.95, and Amazon sells it for $49.94, but Woot! is offering the L5 Universal Remote for iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad for only $19.99 + $5 S&H. That’s half of Amazon’s price – and this is new, not refurbished. $20 for touchscreen universal remote capabilities is not much to ask, especially when it is a $60 product.
