Dijit for iPad
Dijit’s universal remote control app is now a universal iOS app. Dijit started dropping hints about the new iPad-friendly interface for their app about a month ago and it is now available. As expected, the updated app takes advantage of the extra screen real estate to make more information visible at one time, including TV listings, social recommendations, and on-screen remote control. It’s probably still not enough to make up for the limitations of the battery-powered Griffin Beacon that Dijit’s universal remote control functionality is tied to, but it is a step in the right direction for iPad fans.
Viewers will be able access their local TV listings, get recommendations from their Facebook friends, and gather more information about the cast and crew of the shows they’re watching. The app includes Wikipedia and YouTube integration to highlight additional content online.
