Has anyone found a good app that works with the Note3 IR blaster? I haven't been able to get WatchON to work with my phone/tv combo and am looking for something that works well... Any help would be much appreciated!

Is it worth the $7? If it is I'll buy it... I usually prefer free but if it's a genuinely good app i'll throw some money at it

Works great with our Note 3, well worth it I've already forgotten I paid 7 bucks.

It works fantastic, and their support is top-notch. I worked with them all summer on bugs, etc.

If you have access to an HTC One, the hardware IR implementation on it supports code learning, so you can "teach" it commands. I had to do this on some devices I had remote controls for that were not supported. I created a device, learned the codes, and then did a backup of my config within the app. I then restored that backup to my various devices with IR ports (Note 3 included) and it worked like a champ.

Smart IR takes Watch On to school in every respect. EASILY worth the cost if IR is really important to you.

WatchON has been great for me. I've been able to fully control every IR device I've come in contact with (including a 17-year-old DVD player). Can't beat it for free.
