Many phones come with infra-red ports and IR universal Remote turns your infra-red equipped phone into a universal remote for many gadgets. Be it a television, stereo or any gadget, you could use your phone as a remote control.  The app can automatically get IR codes from IRUDB™ database for hundreds of devices. Though we haven’t played much with this app, this is one of the most highly rated IR apps on play store. – TheAppCurators
