    "SURE Universal Smart TV Remote is perhaps the best apple tv remote app for Android. It's much simpler to be able to control as much as possible on one device...and I almost always have my phone on me anyway! Another exceptional feature is that I can watch streaming movies playing on my phone on the TV! This app demonstrates what I love best about new technology!"

    "It's kinda ironic that this is a universal control but it doesn't really work with Apple tv! Good thing we have an xbox one, somehow I can control it using anymote."


A remote control or clicker is one component of electronic devices such as TVs, media players, and other home appliances. A remote control is primarily a convenience feature for the user and can allow operation of devices that are out of convenient reach for direct operation of controls.


Before the era of TV remote apps, the remote control has a long history of evolution. The first ever remote control for the television was invented in 1950, called "Lazy Bones" and was connected to television sets through a wire. Years later, in 1955, the first wireless remote was created by one Zenith engineer named, Eugene Polley and was called "Flash-matic" utilizing photocells that reacted to light in order to be controlled. In 1956, the "Zenith Space Command" went into commercial production with an improved version utilizing ultrasonic waves for improved utility and reliability and saw long-term use and adoption all the way into the 1970s with the help of transistors that made it possible to produce hand-held, battery-powered version of the remote controls. 

It was not until the 1980s when Infrared technology replaced ultrasonic remote controls and is still being utilized in today's devices such as smartphones for added communication potential such as being used as universal remote controls to a number of modern appliances. Today, the remote has evolved so much. There are already Apple TV remote apps for Android and other platforms.

    "Why my husband bought an apple tv when we have android phones is beyond me. Stick with an OS dude! In my opinion, a person should either stick with apple or stick with android. Anyway, if you have done the same thing, this app will work as a remote for your apple tv, using your android phone. And if you haven't used a remote app before, you'll love it! No more searching around for the remote - it's right in your hand! "
