Pronto transforms iPhone into a personalized universal smart remote

pronto-personalized-remoteA universal remote control does sound like a pretty cool deal to have, but is there something better than that out there? Well, Pronto has something up their sleeves, where it will be able to turn the iPhone into a personalized universal smart remote. Already available at select Best Buy stores nationwide and at, Pronto that will be paired with the Peel Smart Remote app, will allow one to control the likes of your TV, set-top boxes, DVD and Blu-ray players, and it is not limited to just that as there are thousands of other entertainment devices. It is an easy and budget-friendly method of transforming your home into a smart and connected one.

 Setting up the Pronto is a snap – all that you need to do is to download the Peel app and follow the step-by-step prompts in order to select your cable provider, pairing it up with your Pronto device and to select your devices by brand. All it takes would be a mere matter of minutes, and once you have paired your iPhone to Pronto, you will be able to use the Peel app to check your cable TV guide without having to turn on your TV.

The app will show you what is being aired in real-time, where you will be able to watch later and even the popular shows that folks are buzzing about on Twitter. You will also be able to set favorite channels, genres and shows in order to create your own personalized TV guide, and that means that one does not need to spend time to scroll through your guide, because as the Peel app learns your viewing habits, it will also automatically present content that you will be interested in right on your home screen. Your TV guide would now be in your hand – literally, thanks to the Peel app. It is compatible with the iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, iPhone 5c, iPhone 5s, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus and iPod touch.
