Universal Remote Controls for iOS

Victor Agreda, Jr. writing on Tuaw has posted some reviews of iOS based universal remote systems.

The reviews cover the UnityRemote from Gear4, Peel and Griffin’s Beacon.

Conclusions are:
“There’s no such things as “one size fits all” when it comes to technology. Each remote had quirks and flaws that could be deal killers for you personally. I recommend downloading all the associated apps first and trying them out before you buy the hardware. Since the interface you’ll be using will be on your iOS device, you’ll want to spend some quality time ensuring buttons are comfortable to you, and all the additional features are things you’ll use. When you do buy a remote, look for a retailer with a generous return policy as these are all first generation products prone to issues anyway. If you don’t like it, you’ll want to return it.”
