With each new smartphone generation we move closer and closer to having our smartphone control anything and everything in our lives. This is especially true now that companies are trying to add “smart” connectivity to all of their products. There are some things we still own that don’t connect as easily to our smartphones as other things, or perhaps the smart interfaces aren’t as smart as we’d like them to be. When it comes to your home entertainment setup, there’s one great device that transforms your iPhone into the ultimate universal remote that controls any and all of your gear. The Pronto Smart Universal Remote Control also couples with the Peel app, which is a fantastic image-based TV guide. I bought my Peel years ago for about $50, and it’s still my favorite iPhone accessory to this day. At $15, it’s a no-brainer.
