The trusty remote control is a central part of any home cinema setup, but that could be about to change thanks to the Toshiba TV Remote app, which lets you control your Toshiba Regza TV using an Apple iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.
The Toshiba TV Remote app works with any LAN-connected Toshiba Regza TV, and connects via your home wireless network. You're not sold short when it comes to features, either – in fact the Toshiba TV Remote actually offers even more functionality than the standard remote control, plus it and it makes full use of the convenience and flexibility of a touchscreen interface.
There are five different screens to choose from depending on what it is you're trying to achieve – Flick Mode, Number Mode, Cursor Mode, Playback Mode and Direct Key Mode – and you can register and switch between up to 20 different TVs from within the same app.
The Toshiba TV Remote takes full advantage of gesture and swipe-based controls – changing the channel or adjusting the volume, for instance, can be done with a single swipe across the touchscreen when you're in Flick Mode.
But the best part of all is that the Toshiba TV Remote app is completely free and you can download it right now from iTunes
