Thumbs up Power Off - Turn Off Anything In The Room

Hi guys!

We released our first app for the Gear 2, Power OFF, which is basically TV-B-Gone on steroids. Best of all, it's 100% free, no ads, no internet/phone connection required, no weird permissions or facebook logins.

** POWER OFF ** is the ultimate tool for your Samsung Gear 2 to take final control of any IR-controlled appliance. It performs one function - the last action you'll ever need: turning off anything.

POWER OFF works with 99% of the most popular devices on the market:

- TVs
- Set Top Boxes
- Air Conditioners and Heaters
- Audio/Video Systems, DVD Players, BluRay players
- Gaming systems and Media Managers
- Projectors
- ... and many others

Were you ever at a bar where the TV was too loud? Or maybe in bed, with the remote nowhere in sight? All you need is the **free** POWER OFF app for your Samsung smart watch, and you can turn them off.
How about showing off your watch to your friends? Simply turn off all their home equipment at once with the mighty power of your watch!

If you've ever heard of [TV-B-Gone], think of POWER OFF for your Gear 2 as a version of that, **on steroids**. This **isn't limited to just TVs**, but works with any other device too!

Feel free to let me know of any issues, feature requests, etc!

Nice toy! Thanks.

For home use, I would like to learn the app the required codes, because for daily use it takes too much time to turn off my devices.

If only it were that easy. The Gear 2 doesn't have the hardware required to learn commands.

Thanks for this app! I like using it. It finds my tv quickly to turn off. And also turns my tv on. Another great app to add to my Gear 2.

A nice feature to add is car radios.

I don't mean learning by a receiving ir sensor, but by indicating in your app which ir code works for my device. Each ir code send action has a number. Or after a successful turn off, directly confirm this in the app, and next time start with the confirmed codes.

Ah, I see! How about, if you manually STOP the codes sending at position 100, next time it would start from code 90 ? (N - 10)

HI I really hope you go forward with doing a full-featured remote replacement for Watch-On. Samsung's Gear version of WatchOn really is useless for me since I need something that will support my Onkyo home theater receiver for the volume in my home entertainment system.

In fact I use your Android app on my Note 3 instead of their phone version as well (I was the guy who sent you an email inquiring about possibly porting your android app to the Tizen Gears and someone responded that you actually were the same devs who created this Power Off app).

The IR blaster is one of the reasons I may stick with the Gear even once Android Wear starts showing up - but if I can't control my home theater system, there's no reason for me to stick with it.
