Free companion app for Seagate devices

Seagate has made an iOS companion TV Remote app available on the iTunes App Store for its GoFlex TV and FreeAgent Theater+ HD. The app allows users to remotely control their Seagate devices over Wi-Fi so that they can use it anywhere around the house. When launching it for the first time, the app will automatically scan a user's Wi-Fi network for available devices.

The TV Remote supports all the buttons and functions as the standard IR remote (except powering on the HD media player)
It allows users to end photos from their iOS device to the drive inserted into the HD media player and instantly display them in full resolution on their TV. The app also allows users to navigate files stored on the drive inserted into the HD media player and begin playing files with a single click
. For added convenience, it also utilizes the built-in keyboard on iOS devices to enter text when searching or using Internet services such as YouTube.

In order to use the Seagate TV Remote app with a GoFlex TV or FreeAgent Theater+HD media player, users first need to install the latest firmware update for their HD media player.

The Seagate TV Remote app is available free through the iTunes App Store.
