    Ok so basically this app is just for controlling itunes so u won't have to get near your macbook or pc. Cool though but I need something for apple tv itself. This lets u play the music in apple tv from Itunes but doesn't really control my apple tv!!

WHAT'S THE MEANING?

A remote control or clicker is one component of electronic devices such as TVs, media players, and other home appliances. A remote control is primarily a convenience feature for the user and can allow operation of devices that are out of convenient reach for direct operation of controls.

DID YOU KNOW?

Before the era of TV remote apps, the remote control has a long history of evolution. The first ever remote control for the television was invented in 1950, called "Lazy Bones" and was connected to television sets through a wire. Years later, in 1955, the first wireless remote was created by one Zenith engineer named, Eugene Polley and was called "Flash-matic" utilizing photocells that reacted to light in order to be controlled. In 1956, the "Zenith Space Command" went into commercial production with an improved version utilizing ultrasonic waves for improved utility and reliability and saw long-term use and adoption all the way into the 1970s with the help of transistors that made it possible to produce hand-held, battery-powered version of the remote controls. 

It was not until the 1980s when Infrared technology replaced ultrasonic remote controls and is still being utilized in today's devices such as smartphones for added communication potential such as being used as universal remote controls to a number of modern appliances. Today, the remote has evolved so much. There are already Apple TV remote apps for Android and other platforms.
