WALTHAM, MA, Mar 03, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
ThinkFlood (http://thinkflood.com/), maker of RedEye universal
remote control products for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, today
announced RedEye mini. RedEye mini is the affordable ($49), portable
way to turn any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into an advanced universal
remote with free, integrated program/channel guide and infrared code
RedEye mini users can control their TVs, DVRs, stereos, game
consoles, etc., whether they are at home or on the go, and can save
button layouts for favorite activities such as, "Watch Blu-ray in
Living Room," "Listen to Music at Work," or "Watch TV at Gym."
"The second product in the RedEye line, the RedEye mini, continues
our tradition of giving iPhone, iPod touch and iPad owners benefits
previously available in remotes costing several times as much," said
ThinkFlood president and founder Matt Eagar. "We also think it's
pretty sweet that RedEye mini is the world's smallest activity-based
Why choose RedEye mini?
-- RedEye mini is the most affordable ($49), powerful, and customizable
universal remote accessory for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The free
RedEye app -- available through the iTunes AppStore -- is constantly
evolving. RedEye mini users will frequently benefit from new features
and functionality via software updates.
-- Unlike other iPhone remotes, RedEye mini plugs into the headphone jack,
which frees the dock connector for charging while while the remote is in
use. This is a significant advantage because iPhone users will not have
to flip their phones upside-down to use the remote, and having a low
battery will never leave users stranded without a remote.
Why is RedEye mini the best portable universal remote for iPhone,
iPod and iPad?
-- Infrared Code Database & Learning Module -- Large, continuously updated
database of manufacturer-supplied remote codes for easy set-up. Or use
the learning module to quickly train RedEye mini with commands from
-- Program and Channel Guide -- Free integrated electronic program guide
allows users to access program and channel information without
interrupting what is happening on the TV screen.
-- Unlimited Device & Command Capacity -- Control a virtually unlimited
number of devices; store a virtually unlimited number of commands.
-- Activity Remotes -- Customize personal remotes for favorite activities.
Example: select useful buttons from existing remotes and place them on
one screen for easy access to just the commands needed at the moment.
-- Macros -- Customize buttons to send out a series of commands. Examples:
touch one button to mute TV volume and turn on closed captioning; touch
one button to jump to ESPN.
-- Customizable control -- Control equipment with touchscreen buttons,
Apple's Multi-Touch gestures, and accelerometer controls. Examples:
swiping two fingers down the screen can lower volume; flicking the
iPhone forward can change the channel.
