Late last month, we introduced you to FLPR created by New Potato Technologies, a little gadget that attaches to the bottom of your iPhone / iPad / iPod and transforms it into a universal remote control. It’s such a value add to these devices especially since they’re with us most of the time even within our households – it only makes sense to make them do more tasks! See the video below to see exactly how it works.
Product Features of the FLPR Universal Remote
- Accessory and App create powerful universal remote combo
- Controls multiple devices: TV’s, cable & satellite boxes, DVR’s, DVD’s, receivers and more
- 14,000 pre-programmed IR codes for easy setup
- No batteries: powered by iPhone or iPod touch
- User friendly and easy set up
- The free FLPR app is available from iTunes store
FLPR Installation Was Easy
This weekend, I was finally able to unpack one of the FLPR dongles and set it up with my home entertainment. All in all it was super easy to set up the FLPR!
Here are the steps I took:
- Downloaded and installed the FLPR App for iPhone
- Selected Device Type
- Selected Manufacturer Type
- Specified a name
- First device completed
- Repeated for other devices
While it located and found IR codes stored in the FLPR database for my LG TV, it couldn’t find my BUSH digital set top box – maybe because it’s an el cheapo (Dad got it when my other konked out). The good thing was, you can still do a manual / custom install. Simply select the “Custom” option and specify device details again – this time you’ll have to put the FLPR against the infrared tip of the remote and sync each button individually.
After only a couple of minutes I could control my TV and Digital Set Top Box via my humble iPhone 3GS!
