Fitzok: (Any device supporting IR blaster): Much better than stock options. You get a library of IR codes for over 600,000 devices, customizable remotes, customizable widgets, programmable macro commands, floating remote, and it supports Air Gestures. Supports most custom ROMs, including CM.
Smart IR Remote is the only IR universal remote app for Android that you'll ever need: it's smart, with a device coverage that is huge (650.000 devices, with more added daily and on request), and it's the only one that makes use of features only your phone/tablet have, that a plastic remote (like the Logitech Harmony) never will. As IR remote controls go, especially android remote controls, you'll never find one better!
Smart IR Remote works with any Samsung and HTC devices with an IR Blaster, and any other brand phone/tablet with an IR Blaster that runs Android 4.4 or above provided originally by the manufacturer. Even better, Smart IR Remote also works on most custom ROMs like CyanogenMod, Paranoid Android, basic AOSP, AOKP, etc.
Smart IR Remote is an universal remote control app that can command almost anything that receives InfraRed commands, like a TV, Set Top Box (cable and sattelite box), DVD, BluRay player, VCR, Amplifier, Air Conditioner, AV Receiver, DSLR camera, etc. Better yet, you can combine your remotes into smart remotes (activities) so that on your custom remote you'll have the volume buttons to your surround system, the channel buttons to control your set top box and the display buttons to control your TV. It's the only Android universal tv remote that can do that, while controlling any other device too!
