DETROIT, Mich. - With its third major software update this year, iRule has released iOS Version 3.2 of its cloud-based universal remote control system, just days before the 2013 CEDIA Expo. Highlights of Version 3.2 include Top Drawers, multi-state deselection and a rebuilt URL scheme with panel/page linking. iRule's Android version is expected to receive the same updates later this year.
"Building on Version 3.1 updates, we're providing more iRule users and installers with the increased power and functionality they've asked for," said iRule CTO Victor Nemirovsky. "Combine that with cloud computing, and installers can make changes for their customers with or without a site visit - in hours instead of days."
Highlights of iRule iOS Version 3.2 include:
¬∑ Rebuilt URL scheme with panel/page linking: allows iRule to be opened using nothing more than a URL
¬∑ Second Multi-state Deselect Group: allows two sets of source/activity buttons to interact with one another
¬∑ Additional upgrades include: improved functionality of Variables, improved feedback when pages load, and iOS 7 compatibility.
iRule Version 3.1 for iOS, released earlier this year, included:
¬∑ Introduction of multi-state images, a drag-and-drop ESI Module for blinds, shades and drapes, also followed by updates to the Android platform app.
The company will be exhibiting the latest version of iRule and modules for audio/video and automation at the 2013 CEDIA Expo trade show in Denver, in booth # 1829.
iRule was created by two A/V fans, Itai Ben-Gal and Nemirovsky, when they were looking for an easier way to control a home theater system. It offers a solution to accommodate many components and eliminate the clutter caused by multiple remotes with limited uses.
iRule is a cloud-based software solution coupled with simple hardware which controls any infra-red (IR), RS-232 or Ethernet-enabled audio/video equipment, making it compatible with nearly any system or combination of components. A fully customizable interface allows professional users to simplify controls, upload their custom images and personalize menus to best suit their customers. iRule is also easily updated to control additional components or to migrate to the latest versions of smartphones and tablets, making it the last remote users will ever need.
iRule software is available through Apple's App Store and Google Play. The iRule gateway package hardware is available at www.iRuleAtHome.com. The company has already sold over 12,000 licenses in 50+ countries via word-of-mouth and online "buzz" among early adopters, home theater professionals and online forums.
iRule is an application that transforms the iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Android devices into a universal remote control, allowing you full control of audio video gear simply and reliably. Based in downtown Detroit, iRule focuses on a simple user experience that allows experts and non-experts alike the ability to quickly and easily create a powerful personalized remote. iRule is fully upgradeable and accommodates users' changing needs.
