(PRWEB) March 26, 2013
Touchsquid announces the release of Touchsquid Remote App for Sony now selling in Google Play, Amazon app market and through licensed resellers located in North America and international markets.
Sony makes a number of Android devices which have built in Infrared transmitters for use as Home Theater remotes. They are the Sony Tablet S, Xperia S, Xperia Z and Xperia ZL phone. Sony includes a basic remote control app with these devices.
The new Touchsquid app for Sony uses the built in infrared on these models and requires no other hardware or external IR blasters.
The Touchsquid app greatly extends the capabilities of the Sony devices. The Sony app emulates individual remotes, but does not unify them. The Touchsquid remote app for Sony is activity based, an all-on-one remote, which controls multiple devices with one button control.
Touchsquid app comes in two versions: the Home and the PRO. The HOME version of the Touchsquid remote app is limited to four devices in a room. The PRO version handles 10 devices in a single room profile. The number of profiles is unlimited.
The Touchsquid PRO further provides comprehensive user definable macros. A macro is a sequence of commands which can perform complex tasks. Macros can be attached to any command including user defined buttons.
The Sony has a built in infrared code library provided by UEI. The Touchsquid app uses this library to control the same devices as the Sony app. It can command a wide range of home theater components including projection systems, monitors, amplifiers, cable and satellite boxes, game consoles and media players of all types.
The PRO remote app is designed to be easy to set up but also comprehensive in function. It does not require any external programs or internet connection for set-up. Screen layouts have usable default settings, but can be edited to add custom buttons and functions, including macros.
Favorites buttons with icons extend up to 41 screens with 24 favorites per screen. Thousands i=of Channel icons are inluded, and many more are available from Iconharmony.com.
Infrared control is line of sight. For situations where theater components are hidden in cabinets or behind walls, the Touchsquid app provides support for external IR blasters such as Global Cache, Keene, and IRTrans.
A 30 day trial version is available at a nominal fee and can be upgraded either to the Home or Pro version at a reduced cost.
