V2.0 Enables Social Networking Capabilities on the Re™ iPhone Universal Remote

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwire - September 15, 2010) -  NewKinetix, LLC announced today the Version 2.0 software update for the Rē Universal Remote enables "social networking" among users. V2.0 adds email sharing of Rē setups, so if users want to share a custom remote with their friends, they can send all or part of their settings via email. Users on the Rē Forum can request or share a new device to add to the Rē's extensive built-in device list. Other setup information like favorite program lists can also be shared. Users can email devices to NewKinetix to add to the database.

With V2.0, the Rē now supports the iPhone 4 at full resolution and uses the iPad screen size and resolution to full advantage while maintaining setup compatibility between all iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch models.

To further enhance customer support, NewKinetix offers IR Codes on Demand™ device additions to the Rē database. Any user can request that a device be added to the database, and if device codes are available, the update can typically be made within one working day. This insures that the Rē database will continue to keep up with new brands and device types.

With growing international demand, NewKinetix has also internationalized the Rē App. It is now available in English and French and additional languages are planned for future app updates.

The V2.0 software release also adds features and capabilities that continue to advance the Rē's value for new and existing customers. New features in the release include:

  • Rename Rooms, Devices, Activities, Favorites and Button labels
  • New, easier to use, learning interface
  • Backup and restore settings
