    I just love my remote I am a South Florida singer / performer that got an iPad Air to put my shows music on instead of always using my MacBook. The set up to connect the remote took about 30 seconds and I was controlling my iTunes music playlist remotely. I can be at least 30 - 40 feet away without any problems. I had been long looking for this type of remote. GREAT PRODUCT for a GREAT PRICE> I highly recommend this.

    Perfect for Selfies I got this for my wife who loves to take pics of her and the boys utilizing a selfie wand (holds phone at a distance) but didn't have the flexibility with a timer to ensure the boys were ready and facing the camera when the timer expired and took the picture. This resolved that problem perfectly! She now can decide when the boys are cooperating and snap the shot as she pleases. Additionally, I ride a motorcycle and read comments about using with my phone while riding for easy control of music. It saved me the cost of much more expensive phone options!

    Works on Samsun Galaxy S5 I bought this remote becaus people said it would work on t most KitKat Android devices. So far everything works. I checked to see if "S" Voice works like the Siri control, and if you double click home it will bring it up. If you press and hold the home button it will bring up the Google Search screen and any music app running will be controlled by the remote. The home button works and the camera shutter works . This does everything it says it will do on iOS on the Android OS.

    The best remote ever! I love this bluetooth remote. It does not interfere with my earbud bluetooth. I can switch songs, repeat songs, skip them, lower the volume, etc. The best thing is that the buttons are so perfectly placed that to do all the aformentioned, I need not look at the remote, which is a plus while driving. In addition, the remote also has a shutter release button to take pictures with your iPhone in my case, when you also want to be in the picture and there is no one around to take the picture for you! It is small and slim. It is perfect, exactly everything I have ever wanted in a remote for my iPad and iPhone. Thank you so much!

    Good product I tried several products to control my MacBook Air remotely, especially the presentations, but this product is definitely the best. Although I couldn't verify the duration of the battery, it is small, very usable, it connects very quickly and maintains the connection. Since it is Bluetooth it doesn't occupy a USB input. All is good!

    Super device, but a heavy-duty version would be even better. Extremely useful little gadget.
    As a remote in the car for playing music, it is perfect. Works great with spotify as well.
    I agree with the other reviewers here in wanting a weatherproofed version for use when riding my motorcycle and even mpre for bicycling. I would be willing to pay the extra cost for a heavy-duty version. If it got a bit bigger it would be ok, because this thing is really small. So build quality could be improved, and that is my only reason for removing one star - if this is not important to you, it's a definite five star gadget. Pairing with both mac,ipad and iphone was quick and easy, and having a remote control for the iphone camera is absolutely brilliant.

    Missing the Boat...er, Motorcycle I'm a motorcyclist. I don't listen to music around town (for safety), but do when droning along the interstate. I've mounted this little wonder on my handlebars so my iPod can safely hide in my jacket. I used to have to stop, open my jacket, and remove my gloves whenI exited the interstate so I could manually pause the music.

    I think Satechi is really missing an opportunity with this market segment, however, by not offering a weather resistant model. It would be an easy thing to do and would take the motorcycle market by storm--no pun intended.

    Great product I use this device primarily to control my iphone 5 while riding my motorcycle. I have mounted it with velcro to the handlebar of my ride in order to control the phone and music capabilities of my iphone5 which I keep out of the weather in the pocket of my motorcycle jacket. In this application it works very well. It could be improved by making the device waterproof as I have to remove it in rainy conditions. Another suggested improvement would be to discontinue the large single rocker button which currently operates 4 separate functions and replace with 4 individual buttons. The reason for this is that if you don't hit the sweet spot for the rocker button it will instead operate a different function. Other than this it really is a great product, thorougly well designed, simple to pair and operate. The touring motorcycle community have wanted a product like this for some time and it fits the bill very well.

    Satechi's bluetooth remote adds a 'Siri button' and may save you a traffic ticket or worse I use my remote in by car. Satechi's remote has an extremely quick connection to its paired device. In fact, it seems to be operational as soon as you flip the 'on, switch located on its upper right side. The build quality is good and the battery life is great.

    GREAT device for iPhone This thing is great - it seems silly that you'd need a remote for your iPhone - and when I was searching for this product, people thought I was a goof... BUT - specifically I bought this for snowmobiling. You have your headphones on, your hood on, your helmet on, your coat on, your gloves on and your iphone shoved deep in a pocket. YOu need to pause your music/audiobook... so off comes the gloves, off comes the jacket, out comes the iPhone... WHAT A PAIN - now I just whip this out of my pocket and push a button. with gloves on.

    If you own a MacBook Air and use Keynote for presentations, buy this! Its great for MBA users who do presentations but NOT if you also have to use Powerpoint. In Powerpoint you have to use the little "enter" key on the keypad to advance slides which is not ideal.

    Otherwise a great product!

    Works as advertised. I was primarily looking for a remote to control iPhone keynote presentations and read too quickly through the product description. So it did not register, that the presentation remote capabilities work only on desktop or laptop computers but not on iOS devices. This would be a great feature and I would gladly give it 5 stars if this was possible.

    But to be fair. The device does exactly what has been advertised.

    Good Product With all the various state laws regarding utilizing cell phone while driving, this little product does not require you to remove your focus from the road.
    Can easily control volume, track selection and activate and use Siri without touching the phone.
    The simplicity of the design for use is well thought out.
    May not be a bad idea if a button or 2 was textured so you know exactly what button you are about to press.

    Great product, does exactly what I hoped.

    Just what I needed. Great product. Just what I needed.
    Easy to setup. It re-connects to the iPad within seconds when switched on again.
    I purchased the remote control for my iPad to be able to control mainly my audio books.
    I use it to go back a chapter, rewind, fast forward and change the volume.
    This is done at night so I find I can feel the buttons on the device. I get the orientation from the on-off switch.
    Works well with the Apple Music App, Audible app and AudioTracker (iPhone edition). Some iPad players have not implemented the controls correctly to the apple specifications and therefore do not recognize the FF/RW but all seem to work with the volume and Play/Stop buttons.

    Very good item This remote controller is just perfect.
    It does the job perfectly ! Easily connected to the iPhone (5) it works fine and is particularly responsive.
    The item over passes the expected functionality providing additional buttons that appear useful. Even very useful : one can wirelessly take a picture with the iPhone camera just pressing a button on the remote controller . Just brilliant.
    Having a bluetooth FM transponder in the car I can know change my music without even putting my iPhone out of my pocket or bag.
    Nice product intelligently designed.

    Absolutely brilliant I have been using the remote for a couple of weeks now, and it has been absolutely brilliant. I listen to podcasts on my ipad when I'm out, and it was a pain to pause and change volume. Using the remote makes it a heck of a lot easier to do these things.

    The only problem I find is that you have to be carefull not to knock the remote when its in your pocket, as it may accidentally hit one of the buttons. Having a hole for a lanyard would be great in this respect.

    That aside, the remote is pretty solid little device, and fits easily into your pocket.

    Overall, this is a great Bluetooth remote, and I highly recomend it to anyone who is thinking about buying it.

    Expect to work with keynotes on iPhone 4S but not Hi,

    This little device now become a little bit waste because the presentation mode does not work with Keynote on iPhone 4S. You know if this work will be cool. You don't need to take the big laptop to the place especially in a busy day this saves lots of energy.

    Thanks.

    from an Android user I've been looking for something like this that would work with Android but was having trouble finding something suitable. After reading a few bits and pieces, including a review that said it worked with a Samsung Galaxy S3, I decided to take a punt. So..

    It pretty much works as advertised with a Samsung Galaxy S2 running Android Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS). Specially, with the stable version of Cyanogenmod 9. However, there's a couple of small problems that require workarounds.

    Firstly, the buttons are designed for iPhone and don't translate fully to Android functions. The keyboard button (lower left) doesn't seem to do anything and the camera shutter doesn't work to trigger the camera. It's possible to remap them with a texteditor and a key tester tool but I haven't bothered as the media controls themselves work perfectly.

    The second problem is related to a known issue with Bluetooth with ICS and may also occur in other versions of Android. What seems to happen is that if there's no interaction between the phone and the remote for a certain period then the connection will not automatically re-establish. I'd tried making sure the phone was always visible but it still seems to drop and then fail to renegotiate - requiring the user to enter the Bluetooth menus on the phone to reconnect.

    HOWEVER, I managed to find a workaround that fixes this via an app named Bluetooth Keepalive (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.floodping.BluetoothKeepalive&hl=en). This prevents the sort of sleeping that would normally happen and so allows the devices to stay connected to each other. I tested this overnight - I left Bluetooth on the phone switched on before I went to bed and then when I woke up I pressed the Play/Pause button on the remote and it immediately resumed the media file I had loaded.

    Hopefully this information may be useful. Take with a pinch of salt, however, other users may have different Android experiences.

    is that so it connects easily, works as advertized as a remote for the camera. It does say that it MAY interfere with the pop up keyboard in the iPad. The word MAY is incorrect, simply put it DOES interfere. Easy fix, just turn off the remote.

    Love it cant get enough of it. I have been looking for a single accessory to do all that this one does. This the must have accessory right behind car charger. I was ok paying $39 for it till it came in the mail. It is very lite and feels cheap. I tend to be rough on things and i hope it can keep up. I would have been more comfortable with a $20 price. In fact, i would have bought 2 if they were 20. As well all my friends want one till i told them i paid 39 for it. I cant express how valuable this remote is. But they could work on the price.

    Great in-car device I have mounted this behind the steering wheel in my 2005 VW polo (next to where I rest my fingers) and have my iPhone hooked up to the car's AUX-in. This works like a charm - it's so useful to be able to activate Siri and choose a song at will, whilst charging my iPhone at the same time through my 12v port.

    I wish the construction were a little higher quality, light up keys would be a bonus and most importantly *it would be much easier to mount if it had a flat rather than curved shape and if it were just a touch smaller (in terms of height)*.

    Finally, I can't work out if it's turning itself off after periods of inactivity or whether this HAS to be done manually (with the off button on the side) but even with room for improvement it is the best value in-car control solution on the market at the moment.

    Great Product This is a great product and exactly what I was looking for. You can control your iphone music play, sound, ect while not impacting the device output to run an amp and the charging port. I'm using the remote for a cooler stereo and this is a great add to the system.

    For future R&D I'd recommend developing into a waterproof unit. Many of us are using this remote to control cooler stereos of which are used on the boat, floating the river, etc...

    Almost Perfect Remote The remote that came with my JBL speaker dock is very fussy -- only works if pointed directly at the dock, pretty much useless. This is the remote that should've come with it. No line of site required.

    Like many iOS device users, I have many. An iPhone 4S as my phone and previous 4 and 3GS models as well as an iPad 3 and iPod Touch. To switch the remote for use between the devices requires re-pairing every time. Ideally, the remote would remember pairing for multiple devices, but with only 1 active pairing at a time. Pairing with those tiny number keys becomes tedious, something which backlit keys would greatly improve.

    The construction is similar to the dedicated mini remotes that come with speaker docks, not the aluminum Apple remote. The battery compartment is extremely difficult to open, a surprising design choice considering the remote is not re-chargeable.

    The ability to remember multiple device pairings would bring my review to 4 stars. More attention to detail in design, like an aluminum body, backlit keys and easier access to batteries would up the review to 5 stars.

    Useful product, however needs a few more features to justify the price Great product, works exactly as described. However for the price I believe it should have a few more features such as rechargeable batteries, the ability to go to sleep or auto off instead of flipping a physical switch to turn off, in the slide out number pad should be numeric/alpha. Another thing i wish it did but I don't know if it is limited by iOS or Satechi would be the ability to select items in menus such as in Netflix or Hulu (including pause/play).

    Still a great product but is probably more of a $25-30 value instead of $40. It would be nice to have more than one of these in our house hold of multiple iOS devices but at $40 it impractical for buy more than one.

    Very useful for iPhone control in a car I purchased this item for controlling my iPhone during driving a car. My iPhone is always in a glovebox of my car to listen music through car speakers but it is very hard to skip music because it is dangerous to open the glovebox... This item makes me skip music easily with remote control. It is easy to push buttons of this controller during driving.

I know that Apple recently patented a remote a month ago, but it won’t have these features like volume control, mute switch, Voice Control/Siri activation, and you can even type your password number for the lock screen ! I will be using this in the car, while keeping my IDevice in my pocket.

    Wish your iOS device had buttons? In the past I had always been well accustomed to an iPod classic. I was able to adjust the volume, skip through tracks and pause by feel alone, without needing to ever even look at the device. This was useful if I had my iPod connected to my car stereo.

    However, with my transition to an iPod touch, I no longer had the ability to do this as everything was operated by a touch screen. It was often tedious and distracting to have to drop what I was focusing on to look at the iPod touch for simple tasks.

    This remote control is exactly the solution I was looking for. With tangible buttons, I am able to quickly operate my iPod touch while driving, while it is tucked away in a travel back, or while it is on a sound system dock.

    The remote itself comes in a snazzy package which correlates well with the quality of the device. A battery is already provided so by following the included instructions, you'll have the remote working with your iDevice in under a minute. Overall, its design and construction is of very high quality.

    The fact that the remote requires a power switch and a couple seconds to reconnect itself with the iDevice each time is slightly inconvenient, but not a big deal. The need for a button to show/hide the keyboard is a little silly, but that is the nature of iOS and not a shortcoming of the remote itself.

    The operating range is fantastic and I was able to control my iPod touch from the other side of my house.

    Overall, I am very satisfied with my purchase.

    The only remote like this in exestance! Had been looking for a remote capable of activing Siri on my iphone and this is the only remote that works for this purpose (previously had tried to use other remotes I found on Amazon or Ebay, but none worked with Siri unless the iphone was pluggged into an iphone docking station). So this remote is great for me for use in the car, wanting to change the song or activate siri when the iphone is not within reach.

    Great device and well thought out. Thanks for making this product Satechi!

    Does exactly what it says, works great with iPhone 4S I bought the Satechi Bluetooth remote for use in my car, so that I don't have to take my eyes off of the road in order to control my iPhone, which I use to play music through my stereo. The remote works exactly as advertised: control of music works consistently, and it is capable of activating Siri, which makes it very easy to send text messages without taking my eyes off of the road. I haven't yet used it for triggering the camera, but I am looking forward to doing so.

    Unfortunately, the remote uses button cell batteries, rather than being rechargeable. Also, since I intended to use the remote primarily in my car, I was hoping to have a way to mount it to my steering wheel so that no only would I not have to take my eyes off of the road, but I also wouldn't have to remove my hands from the steering wheel to control my phone. Unfortunately, the remote is a bit too big for this (owing probably to the hidden keyboard), and there is no obvious way to mount it to anything (no place to attach a strap, etc.).

    I still feel safer about reaching down into my cup holder -- without looking -- and grabbing the remote than I do about actually taking my eyes off of the road to control my iPhone, so this remote is still an improvement. It's just a shame that it couldn't be rechargeable and mountable.

    I do not like the On/Off switch however, this device needs an auto-shutdown/energy save feature instead of an old school battery draining switch like that.
    Also I would like to see an lanyard loop point, this remote is small enough to lose.

    does what it claims, important adjunct to iPhone photography I bought a glif+ iPhone tripod mount from studioneat.com and a small flexible tripod, assuming I could then take decent pictures. But touching the iPhone to trip the shutter added shake. It was all useless. Until I found this bluetooth remote. Now all my stuff works and delivers exactly what I had hoped.
