Remote Control App

The free of charge Remote Control App enables the user to make his smartphone a touchscreen controlled remote control for the TV program Entertain. The traditional analogue remote is not just transferred and displayed on the smartphone but also is improved by a focus on the user’s TV watching habits and an integrated voice control. The context-sensitive interface highlights the most used functions. Not so often used functions are displayed on the second level of the navigation.


With the conception and design of the Entertain Remote Control app, special attention was placed on ensuring that the behavior and user interface was oriented towards the physical Entertain remote control. The customary user behavior was revisited and transferred into a digital version of the remote control. The main benefit is that additional functions could be implemented into the digital version, that create enormous added value for the user.
