Portland, OR, United States, 2010/09/16 - NewKinetix, LLC announced today the Version 2.0 software update for the Rē Universal Remote enables “social networking” among users to enhance its capabilities - NewKinetix.com.
V2.0 adds email sharing of Rē setups between users, 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 devices or post messages that they have learned a new device, adding to the Rē’s extensive built-in device list. Devices can be customized layouts of a current device, or a completely new remote. Users can also email device settings to NewKinetix to add to the database. Other setup information like favorite program lists can also be shared.
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 now offers IR Codes on Demand™ device additions to the Rē database. Any user can now request that a device not in the original database be added, and if device codes are available, the update can be made, typically within one working day. This is all part of the NewKinetix guarantee that its database will continue to keep up with new brands and device types as soon as the IR codes become available.
The Rē App is now available in French and additional languages are planned for future app updates. NewKinetix has seen significant demand for the Rē universal remote control internationally and shows its commitment to support additional languages with this release.
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:
