Techno Gurus, the developers of iBrr Bluetooth Receiver and Remote 1.0, has launched a new application in a new niche. This is a brand new app that uses peer-to-peer networking via WiFi or Bluetooth technology to transform an iDevice into a remote control. iBrr also provides a secure way to ensure that others have no access to the device.
iBrr Bluetooth Receiver and Remote is the original peer-to-peer music control app, and remains the most feature-rich device to device remote available in the app store. iBrr is easily the best-designed and easiest-to-use app for turning iPhones, iPads or iPod touches into a receiver and remote set. One device is used to control the music playing on the other, which is usually connected to a stereo or speaker system via the headphone jack or an Apple-brand docking station.
Devices can be mixed and matched. That means that an iPhone can be paired with another iPhone, an iPod touch or even the new iPad. Models don’t have to be current; an old one can be used with a new one. iBrr is the perfect answer for what to do with that "old" iPhone when a user has upgraded to the 3G or 3GS.
This is a feature rich application, allowing not only for remote play, skip, repeat and fine volume adjustment but it also gives users the freedom to choose who gets to operate the controls. iBrr allows the user to share control with others in their home or office, or they can keep it private by setting up a separate ID, solely for their own use.
There are a couple of automatic options. iBrr has an AutoConnect function that takes care of putting the app into use and connecting the two devices right away when you launch it. People using an iPhone as the remote can also set the application to send out a pause command to the device that’s acting as the player. When a call comes in, this feature automatically pauses the music to allow users to answer the phone. The same function will also pause the music if the controlling iPhone’s alarm goes off (set using the built-in clock application).
The iBrr interface is very user-friendly, featuring larger than normal control buttons that users just have to tap to use and larger text for song and artist information.

Freedom of distance from the device playing the music depends on a user’s range and the structure of the building or vessel they’re in. Using Bluetooth, iBrr can work up to four or five rooms away or two or three decks on a yacht. The app also works when the devices are connected to the same WiFi LAN, so in this instance, it of course depends upon the number and location of WiFI access points and can therefore be quite far indeed.
iBrr is a development of Techno Gurus, a company renowned for providing custom designed entertainment systems for yachts and select homes. The iBrr app offers the benefit of the company’s specialized know-how and insistence on quality. That should instill customer trust because you don’t become known to the wealthy elite unless you’re good. Really good.
As this is a new release, Techno Gurus are offering the app at a low introductory price. They are including the next upgrade for free with purchase of iBrr 1.0. As the new version promises some exciting new features, such as a sleep function, remote selection of playlists and gesture controls, this app is one that music fans are not going to want to miss.
