German high-end TV manufacturer Loewe has launched the Assist Media app, which transforms your iPad into a multimedia remote control.
The iOS app offers customisable dashboard features, such as One Touch Recording for Loewe’s intelligent TVs.
The app promises greater functionality than a traditional remote, turning your iPad into an interactive touchscreen display and controller in one. You can access a list of channels, with all current programmes clearly displayed, and an electronic programme guide (EPG) provides detailed information of films and TV programmes via the Gracenote database.
What’s more, with Loewe TV’s integrated DR+ hard drive, you can record films or TV programmes via your iPad.
In addition, Loewe’s MediaNet service – which accesses content from the internet or your home network – is integrated into the Loewe Assist Media app, meaning that the apps found on MediaNet can also be accessed using your iPad.
The Loewe Assist Media app is compatible with all internet-enabled Loewe LED televisions over 32in, and the VideoNet app offers easy access to the best online videos, streaming the latest programmes, online shows, screencasts and podcasts directly to your Loewe TV or iPad.
The company says that this app is currently the only one of its kind to open up not only standard programmes but also other programme types from around the world.
The Loewe Assist Media and VideoNet apps are available now at the AppStore and are priced at £3.99 each.
