Among the highlights of the updated software are the addition of 12 user-definable macros (per device); capability to turn all devices on or off with one button; additional programmable buttons for cable/satellite and DVD templates; an auto test feature for even quicker setup; and the removal of ads from the interface. And, with an industry-leading database of more than 40,000 IR codes, the i-Got-Control accessory and its iTunes app support a nearly unlimited number of consumer electronics worldwide, making it an ideal gift for dads and grads on the go.

"i-Got-Control easily replaces the multitude of remotes that clutter the home and often get misplaced," said Doug Schwartz, president of i-Got-it.com. "i-Got-Control empowers users to operate A/V devices, as well as many other pieces of IR equipment, including lighting and HVAC systems, no matter where they are."

Using i-Got-Control's built-in IR library, users can CONNECT, SELECT and CONTROL their A/V components quickly and hassle-free — no Wi-Fi network, wires or batteries needed. And, with its updated software, i-Got-Control now offers all the power of more expensive home theater remotes by providing unlimited macros, which allow users to easily designate buttons for Favorite Channels or Activities — such as Watch DVD, change the Home Theater or shut down the entire system — with the touch of a single button.

Using i-Got-Control is simple. Download the free i-Got-Control application via iTunes and connect the compact accessory to an iPhone (OS is 3.0 or higher), iPod touch or iPad. Launch the application and select the devices to control via pre-defined, user-friendly screens. Last, choose the make and model of the IR devices and save the settings.
