Great balance of power and ease-of-use

This is a great app; it is a great balance between power-flexibility and ease-of-use. I've used it for years, with a number of processors (via Global Cache devices).


LOVE this app!

After purchasing a Global Cache' iTach IP2SL (Serial) I wasted time and money on other apps such as MyURemote (very expensive and very clumsy). In addition to the great price, Mote is by far the best remote app on the App Store. Thank you for this awesome app!!!

Great no-frills remote for IR devices

Works great with GlobalCache's iTach Flex. Learning of IR codes is quick & easy.
