ThinkFlood has invented a universal remote for Apple products including the iPhone, iPod, iPad and iTouch. The RedEye Mini, a small device that can be connected to your iPhone through the headphone jack to provide universal remote capabilities can control your TV, Stereo, Cable Box, DVD Player and many other devices that receive standard signals.

Once you plug it in, just open the RedEye application and start using it. Batteries are not required and because of its online infrared code database, you can control devices even without the original remote on hand. It provides activity-based control, customizable button layouts and multi-touch and motion gestures that are applicable up to 30 feet away. It comes with its own carrying case and can be easily carried anywhere. The price is $49 and it comes bundled with an interactive channel guide and extensive IR code database at no additional cost.
