Updated RedEye Gives Users More Setup Options From The Web

Updated RedEye Gives Users More Setup Options From The Web

ThinkFlood has been making a name for themselves in the iPad/iPhone/iPod accessory market, which seems to get more and more crowded with each passing day. The company's RedEye IR dongle stood out, however, as it gave Apple's line of devices the ability to control pretty much any home component that accepts IR, which is an awful lot of components.

And now, RedEye owners will soon be able to setup and manage their RedEye systems using any Web browser connected to their home network. With the update, users won't be confined to setting things up within iOS, instead they can use more flexible platforms such as a PC or other mobile OS. The RedEye browser app gives (Wi-Fi) RedEye customers the ability to use any PC browser to control their RedEye systems and edit activity layouts. With RedEye app version 2.0, custom layouts are even easier to configure with the ability to select and move multiple buttons at once, align edges automatically and more. RedEye customers may also run the application from a variety of mobile Web browsers -- such as those included with Android and BlackBerry operating systems. ThinkFlood developers say that while the RedEye browser app performs well in tests using non-iOS mobile browsers, version 2.0 is not specifically optimized for them.

Around 70 shortcuts are available from the top, and the updated iOS app will be available within a few days.

WALTHAM, MA--(Marketwire - December 2, 2010) - ThinkFlood (http://thinkflood.com/), maker of RedEye universal remote controls, announced that (Wi-Fi) RedEye owners will soon be able to setup and manage their RedEye systems using any Web browser connected to their home network.

"The networked power of RedEye Wi-Fi systems becomes more apparent in this new version," said ThinkFlood founder, Matt Eagar. "No longer are our Wi-Fi customers limited to iOS, as they can configure and control RedEye from both PCs and other mobile platforms."

With RedEye app version 2.0, custom layouts are even easier to configure with the ability to select and move multiple buttons at once, align edges automatically and more.

RedEye customers may also run the application from a variety of mobile Web browsers -- such as those included with Android and BlackBerry operating systems. ThinkFlood developers say that while the RedEye browser app performs well in tests using non-iOS mobile browsers, version 2.0 is not specifically optimized for them.

ThinkFlood (Wi-Fi) RedEye customers may choose from nearly 70 different keyboard shortcuts to easily control their home entertainment devices when accessing their universal remote control system from a PC.

"Our goal from the start has been to make the RedEye a truly 'universal' universal remote control system," said Eagar. "Our customers should be able to use RedEye from whatever device they have at hand, whether it's an iPhone or a laptop."

The updated RedEye application for RedEye universal remote control systems will be available during the first week of December 2010 as a free download from iTunes (http://itunes.apple.com/app/redeye/id315598320?mt=8).

This thing is incredibly hard to setup and use. And it crashes a lot. I returned mine.

Never much understood getting something like this when Logitech has their Harmony line out which does a much better job easier.
