It also allows you to connect to DSLR cameras as well.

- AnyMote - Smart Remote Control: This app is definitely the best IR remote control app for Android phones.Along with the great interface that it provides ,it also allows you to connect to a great range of appliances which are available on the home page itself.You will rarely come across an appliance which isn’t on the home panel of this app.It also provides you with connectivity to ACs and DSLR cameras in addition to the big home appliances such as TVs,refrigerators etc. It also lets you set some default features such as muting the music system when you are receiving an incoming call.You can also build a customized remote control of your own!(cool stuff!) i.e you can add buttons and other controls according to your requirements.
