Unique Experiences

Your iThing is sleek and polished. Television is not.

Look, we're just going to come right out and say it: your iThing (iPad, iPod, any iPhone not followed by a 5) needs some new friends.

Seriously, it probably spends all day in a protective case in your pocket or in your messenger bag, right? And the only other things it connects to: your laptop, maybe a speaker dock, maybe a Wi-Fi signal. Well, all that stuff is just telling your iThing what it wants to hear, that it's awesome.

That's right: your iThing is getting an ego. It needs to come back down to earth. It needs to be introduced to something that doesn't come from its slick, minimal world. Something that can appreciate art but also enjoys some good old-fashioned trashy entertainment now and then. What we're getting at is that your iThing needs to meet your television.

That's where this L5 comes in. Just download the free app, plug in the attachment, and bang: what was once a cutting edge phone, tablet, or MP3 player is now a lowly universal remote.

And by the way, you can't just let it watch high-brow dramas on HBO all day. No, you need to take it on the grand tour. We're talking TNT, TBS, SpikeTV, USA, QVC, everything.

Sure, there's stuff that this L5 does that'll help you, too - like how it allows you to customize the size of the buttons, upload background images, choose a skin, make macros for your favorite channels, etc. - but that's not what we're talking about here. We're talking about your iThing and how it needs to get out of its comfort zone.

Features

  • Comprised of an accessory and a free app, the L5 Universal Remote transforms the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad into a personal universal remote that controls televisions, DVD players, DVRs, cable boxes, audio equipment, and most other products that come with an infrared remote
  • Simply download the free L5 Remote app from the iTunes App Store
  • A coffee table full of remotes on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
  • Program your remotes by transferring signals "nose-to-nose" from the original remote, or download by selecting from the library of devices
  • If you press the same button sequence repeatedly, let your remote do it for you. Make a macro in seconds, and save time whenever you use it
  • Each activity starts with a setup sequence, and displays only the buttons you need for that activity. The control you want for whatever you want
  • Why try to remember a bunch of numbers when you can go directly to the station you want? Pick your favorite stations, and visit with one touch
  • Make as many remotes as you want, and organize them the way you want to, by rooms, devices, or themes. Design a remote for the living room and another for the bedroom. One for the adults, one of the kids, and one for Aunt Liz
  • Select buttons, labels, and pre-designed panels from the toolbox, and drag them to the grid. Arrange the remote any way you want, and refine as much as you want too. Use drawers to save space, and icons to make everything clear at a glance
  • Use the tools to pick the size, shape, icons, labels, and colors you want. If you don't need a button, you can delete it. Upload custom icons and background graphics
  • Your remote, like your computer, is a lot more useful when it's connected to the web. Upload and download remotes, icons and backgrounds. View the online database, or trade with the community via the L5 cloud
  • Just created a remote? Upload it for others to use. Need a remote? Download it a fully functional remote in seconds. Share your creation with friends via Facebook, Twitter, and email
  • Upload your remotes to the L5 Cloud so you're protected in case you upgrade, damage or lose your iOS device
  • Create your remotes once, and everyone in the house can download a copy. You can have a copy on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch
  • Choose from a growing collection of skins, like clothes for your remote. Use skins to add variety, or to easily identify different remotes
  • Holds up to 100,000 buttons; Indexes up to 1000 remotes

Top Comments are discussion forum posts we have deemed worthy of your time. Listen, we get a lot of comments, and most of the time, it's pretty forgettable stuff; but sometimes you rise to the top like butterfat in milk. We don't recommend you base your self-worth on how often we feature your comments, but we don't expressly forbid it either.
