This app requires the iWavit Premium or iWavit Blast products. It will not work without it!! The iWavit is an iPhone accessory which adds new hardware capabilities to the iPod touch, iPhone or iPad. See www.thinkoptics.com for more details.
The "iWavit PS3" app turns the iPhone (or iPad or iPod touch) into an RF (and IR) Remote for controlling your Sony Playstation 3.
You will be able to pause, play, skip, rewind your Blu-ray movies from more than 300 ft away. You will also be able to freely navigate the main menu of the PS3 with the virtual D-pad.
This app also doubles as wireless USB keyboard. Now you bring up a virtual keyboard on your iPhone and can enter text without cluttering your living-room with a large USB keyboard.
What about your TV and Home Theater System? You can control those as well. The iWavit includes hardware to be able to act like a Universal IR Learning Remote so you can control almost any IR equipment like TVs or surround sound systems.
Insert the iWavit USB Dongle & IR Lightbar into the Sony Playstation 3. (This is Plug & Play. No WIFI network is needed). Now, plug the iWavit Attachment into your iPhone and you will hear a sound indicating that the iWavit has paired successfully with the iPhone.
You are now ready to control your Sony Playstation 3! The iWavit will communicate wirelessly with the USB dongle up to 300 ft away (100 meters).
In addition to controlling your PS3, this app includes the ability to control any device that has a built-in IR receiver (TV, Home Theater System, etc.). Initially there are no IR codes stored in this app. This means that you can take any Remote Control and "transfer" individual button functions into virtual buttons inside the app.
Another great feature of the iWavit is that the USB Dongle & IR Lightbar can act like a RF-to-IR extender.
Finally, there is one more button on the lower left of every screen. This is the HOME button. Pressing the HOME button will take you to the app called iWavit Flow, if it is installed. This app provides a convenient cover-flow way to navigate between iWavit apps.
This "iWavit PS3" app is part of a family of iWavit Virtual Remotes for Major-Brand electronic devices and Computers. For those who wish to create their own custom Remote Controls, we have created the Ultimate Remote Control app called Tabula Rasa (and Tabula Rasa HD for the iPad). With this app you can create remotes, download remotes, upload remotes to share them, search our limited IR database or learn IR codes directly from your old IR remotes. You can even create macros for embedding multiple functions inside a single button. You can also use the app to control PCs/Macs using USB Keyboard strokes or through the patented DirectPointing air-mouse technology built into the iWavit. You can even take pictures of real remotes and virtualize them by overlaying transparent buttons. This is the ultimate app if you want to create your own remote control masterpiece. And when you do, you can share it online with the rest of the world.
Note: The iWavit DirectPointing mouse cursor control does not work on the PS3.
