Dijit Media has produced one for enhanced T.V. viewing. Available for iPhone, iPod Touch, and now for iPad, as well as Android devices, the Dijit Univesal Remote application turns mobile devices into a universal remote control, with program and movie guide features and social networking capabilites. The free Dijit application functions with the Beacon universal remote, which employs a 360 degree infrared blaster that talks to the user’s TV, or the Roku plug-in for smart television sets. The iPhone version dropped in January of last year, while the Android versions shipped the following November. Now, the iPad application is here, making use of the tablet’s larger digital real estate. The application is available for download on the App Store.
