NewKinetix has introduced its new Rē universal remote control accessory for the iPhone and iPod touch. Connecting to the devices via the Dock Connector, Rē works in conjunction with the company’s free Re Universal Remote Control app to control most infrared-compatible electronics. The Rē contains an “extensive” IR database for many brands and types of AV equipment, and can also learn IR codes for remotes not covered by the database. Other features include activity-based user interfaces, allowing users to see and use related buttons for several devices at once, macro functionality, an included carrying case, and the ability to set up “Favorites” lists of TV channels for easy access. The Rē universal remote control accessory for the iPhone and iPod touch is available now and sells for $70.
