I think it’s safe to say that the Pronto Smart Universal Remote Control is the best $50 I’ve spent in recent memory. This awesome little gadget can be positioned in any room in your home, and it connects to your iPhone (or compatible Android phone) via Bluetooth. It packs an omnidirectional infrared blaster, so it can control any and all TVs, Blu-ray players, and anything else with line of sight. The accompanying app is easy to set up and it gives you an awesome visual programming guide that even recommends content based on what you like. Trust me, you’re going to love this device from the moment you get your hands on it.
