No other remote on the market is as versatile as Remote HD! This groundbreaking application is proud to offer the following Apple TV-specific features:
Remote HD's plugin adds the missing AirPlay functionality to your old AppleTV. Use AirPlay enabled application to stream audio, video and photos to your old AppleTV.
One of Remote HD's most amazing features is its remote view. Tap on the monitor button located at the top-right side of the remote to bring your LIVE AppleTV into view, complete with pinching, zooming, left and right-clicks, drag and drop, 3-finger window scrolling and easy access to the keyboard.
Remote HD will feed your iPad / iPhone / iPod Touch with a constant stream of screen data to show you exactly what's happening on the AppleTV while you're controlling it. Prepare to be surprised by the response time and refresh rate!
Remote View - it's our signature feature, and you'll enjoy using your AppleTV like never before - we promise!
Instead of tapping on the remote multiple times to scroll long lists, Remote HD lets you navigate the AppleTV's interface by simply touching the interface. Touch once to select a menu item. Touch again to click it. To go back (same as pressing menu button) touch anywhere on the screen with two fingers.
The new Gesture Pad in Remote HD (running on iOS 4.0 or newer) uses the native gestures supported by the iOS to let you control your AppleTV using swipes. The Gesture Pad supports swipes for navigation, tap for selection, two-finger tap for menu operation and two-finger swipes to skip previous, play/pause or skip next. Controlling your AppleTV without looking at the touch screen is finally possible.
Gesture support has been added to the mini Remote View. Now you can navigate your AppleTV by swiping on the mini Remote View, tapping to select, and two-finger tapping to go back.
Remote HD offers the usual set of buttons found on the physical Apple TV remote: up, down, left, right and OK along with the Menu and Play/Pause buttons. These buttons mimic the functionality of the actual Apple TV Remote.
Remote HD provides a heavily modded wireless keyboard for remote access which automatically pops up when text entry is initiated. It also supports all the international keyboard layouts present in your iOS device.
Switch between or close running programs without any pointing around. Tapping the name of the current application brings up the Application Switcher, and it shows you a list of running programs (much like when you cmd-tab on your Mac, with large icons and clear text labels). Scroll and tap to focus on any running program, and you can close a running program by tapping the 'x' beside each icon.
In Remote HD, every application is accessible with one click or tap. By looking for programs installed on your computer in the Applications library, Remote HD will spare you the drudgery of digging through folder upon folder. You'll simply get a list of all the programs Remote HD finds on your computer. Just tap to run.
Featuring extensive power options, Remote HD allows you to put the Apple TV to sleep, restart it or even shut it down altogether. In addition, selecting "Log off" will perform a "soft" restart on the Apple TV. These options come in handy whether you want to conserve energy, protect your privacy or restart after performing system maintenance.
