The Basics and Buying
Philips Prestigo SRT8215
Peel Smart Remote
This tiny infrared blaster plugs into the 30-pin connector of any iOS device. Pull up the app with the blaster pointing at your TV and you’re good to go. Hacker types will love the anything-goes customization options. But the Zapper gave us too many headaches: The phone occasionally stopped recognizing the dongle, requiring an unplug/replug, and the app frequently failed to register button taps.
get-gadget Best customization features of the bunch. Minimal hardware.
TIRED Erratic and temperamental. Rarely faster than getting up to change channels. Tiny dongle loves to get lost in the sofa cushions. $70
$70 | VooMote Zapper
