Longwood, Florida – Independent developer, David Likosar today is proud to announce the release of Direct Remote 2.0, an update to his popular remote control app for iOS devices. Direct Remote offers a better way to control DirecTV receivers connected to your home network and now features voice control. The app also allows quick tuning using up to 65 favorites and allows receiver control using intuitive gestures, voice commands or a more traditional touch control. The 2.0 release includes support for iOS 10 and a redesigned UI.

Direct Remote is an ideal app for anyone looking for an alternative to the standard DirecTV Remote control. It has a backlit screen that enables easy control in the dark and it can control any compatible receiver on your network, even if it is in a cabinet, another room or otherwise out of sight. Setup is a breeze since properly configured receivers are automatically detected the 1st time you open the app. See notes below to check compatibility with your DirecTV system.

Direct Remote is a Wi-Fi remote control for your DirecTV receiver that allows you to control your receiver using your iPhone or iPod touch from anywhere on your Wi-Fi network.
