Over the past two years, many accessories have come out that transform the iPhone and iPad into a TV remote, but the new Harmony Link from Logitech takes things to a new level. That is because the Harmony Link not only works as a remote, but its free Harmony Link App for iPad also provides a slick interface that is chock full of personalized schedules for your favorite shows, channels and genres, making it easy to find something good to watch.
After all, we all know how it is – you pay for over 100 channels on cable, but who can figure out what to watch and when! That is where the Logitech Harmony Link and its accompanying app come in. The app provides you with a rich television guide that includes show synopses and movie overviews. Best of all, the remote works like an advanced universal remote, meaning it can seamlessly switch between your cable box and Blu-ray player.
The device actually works over WiFi, and it is able to control up-to eight devices at a time. And besides working with the iPad, it’s also compatible with the iPhone, iPod Touch, and Android smartphone.
The Logitech Harmony Link goes on sale in October for $99.99.
