Honourable Mentions

There are a lot of really great remote apps, but some just didn’t quite make the cut. Here are a couple more worth mentioning that didn’t quite make the short list.

  • SlingPlayer Mobile ($37) – Both pricey (for an app) and not exactly a remote, SlingPlayer Mobile is still worth an honourable mention. It lets you control your SlingPlayer remotely and watch your TV right from your iPhone.
  • DVR Remote ($4) – DVD Remote is capable of controlling TiVo Series 3 and TiVo Premier DVRs. It’s a pretty straightforward TiVO remote for your iPhone, but has some added bonus features like themes.
