My problem scenario is simple. In the car, I use my iPhone as a GPS Nav and play music (or listen to Pandora etc). The car's sound system cannot control the iPhone's play, pause, and skip function in my setups, so I have to touch the iPhone screen several times to get to the music control. Simple as skip, with the Nav app on screen, it involves at least two to three "eyes-off-the-road-quick-glances-well-aimed" touches on the small iPhone screen on the even smaller skip icon. Not very safe and should not be done!

This remote provides the solution and allows direct access from its keys to the iPhone's music controls regardless of the app running on screen, even when the iPhone is password locked. No switching of apps, just hit a button and the iPhone reacts accordingly. If you don't have any streaming apps like Pandora or Sirius running in the background, the remote will control the iPhone's iPod functions. If you have a radio streaming app in the background, this remote will play, pause, and skip the content of that app. The simple design of the remote makes hitting the correct function keys without looking possible. Nice.

There is also a home key on the remote to "short cut" to the home screen or the bottom row "running in the background" app. This, again, will reduce the number of times you have to touch the iPhone screen or home button while minimizing the need to look at the phone to access the desired "home screen" related functions.

The volume key on the remote also mimics iOS 5's camera volume up shutter button, so this remote is also a remote shutter control. Neat.

In short, very well made item that solves a whole bunch of problems.

This device is essentially a purpose built miniature Bluetooth keyboard, with a small subset of the keys found on typical Apple keyboards. When used with an iOS device, the remote functions exactly as advertised -- however, things are a bit more complex if you're instead trying to use it with your Mac, as I intended. This review details how to remedy that issue, and replaces my previous one-star review/rating with a review/rating which reflects the incorporation of that remedy.

Out of the box, this remote sends the same media commands that Apple uses on their keyboards; as such, certain keys are only recognized by a small set of applications on the Mac, which includes iTunes, QuickTime, VLC, and a few others. Most other apps simply ignore these keys; notable examples are EyeTV and any in-browser media websites such as Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube. (Potentially even more annoyingly, the "play" button will be received by iTunes, even if it is closed or not in the foreground.)

When I contacted the vendor (Satechi) to ask if there was some way to enable this device for use in other applications, I was quite disappointed at their response, as they were entirely unhelpful and even seemed to be disinterested -- I initially issued a very scathing one-star review in a bitter rebuttal to their response -- but fortunately, I'm a software engineer myself, so I knew there had to be a way to get it to work... and also fortunately, I'm persistent. With some time and a little research, I finally found a solution which enables Satechi's remote to function much more seamlessly with several common media players on the Mac.

To enable this solution for yourself, you'll need to download a free keyboard remapping utility called "Karabiner" (formerly KeyRemap4MacBook).

Works great on At&T Galaxy S3 unrooted!!

I took a gamble and tried this remote out, as I was looking for a way to strictly control my Galaxy S3 without having to be forced into using earphones. This remote control works perfectly - took 2 seconds to configure. The center home button does exactly the same actions as the physical home button on the Galaxy S3...short press goes to the home screen, and long press shows task manager. It's on the expensive side, but it's worth it!

I've been using this remote for less than a week, but I already love it. It works perfectly with my iPad and my iPhone (it can't control both at the same time, of course). It's really useful for when I've got my iPad hooked up to my TV, since the iPad dock doesn't have any IR capabilities. Now I can pause, play, fast-forward, rewind, etc from across the room. I used to use my bluetooth keyboard for that, but it was really a pain because it's just too big to use as a remote.
It was extremely easy to pair the remote with a device. You turn on the remote and then go to the bluetooth section of the settings on your iDevice. Tell it to connect, it'll give you a pin to enter on the remote, and once you do it, you're done! You only have to do this once for the device, although I think you have to repeat the process if you're switching devices. The pin-entering thing is actually good, since it guarantees you won't accidentally pair it with the wrong device and end up controlling someone else's Mac. Instructions for pairing come with it, but Satechi also emailed me instructions just in case the included ones weren't clear enough (although I found the written ones perfectly clear).
The remote has a clear on-off switch (which gives it another leg up on the bluetooth keyboard, since you can actually be sure it's off). It seems to go to sleep or something if you don't use it for a little while (it wakes up again when you hit a button), which I suspect saves battery life.
On my new iPad (3rd generation) and on my iPhone 4S, I've tested all of the buttons except for the one on the lower left with a grid-looking thing. I can't figure out what that does. Holding down the home button works to activate Siri, and the shutter button works for the camera, which is really, really handy.
Love this little device and highly recommend it.
