Default IR remote app?

The watchON app on Gear 2 is very limited.
I really would like to have some remote control option for my Audio system.
Because my TV audio output is connected to my Yamaha receiver.
Is there any 3rd party app for IR remote control ?

Thx.

I'd also like to see the ability to control my Roku as well.
Samsung Galaxy SIII | Samsung Gear 2 Neo | Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

In general, an IR app with learning facility would be great

I think this is not possible. The iR on Samsung is a sender module, not receiver, at least in S4/Note 3.

ok; I would also be satisfied with some app who can learn through a 4 digit remote controller code.
And not limited to 2 type of devices (TV and air conditioner)

The Gear/smartwatches in general are usually purchased by early adopter/techie types who have a good chance of having a high end home theater system. Most of these setups have the tv piping into a surround receiver, so the Watch-On is terrible in that it doesn't have support for more devices like these.

Default roku ir

I know the roku has an ir receiver, so it should be a matter of simply finding the right frequency. No reason it couldn't work

Yes I use these on my Note 3, but having on the watch is much more "handy". I already sent a request for the Unified Remote guys to write an app for Tizen that works like their phone app. I'd love to use the Gear touchscreen like a mouse for my HTPC.
