Peel Fruit and iOS app review: channel surfing of the future

There's no shortage of devices that aim to replace your always-missing remote control with your always-present smartphone, and the Peel is one of the more recent and unique entries into the space. A software / hardware combination consisting of a "Peel Fruit" and accompanying iOS app, the package brings a new approach to finding what to watch -- and it's unlike most other smartphone-IR options we've encountered so far. Does it all come together, or are we left wishing for more? Read on past the break to find out!

Pros
  • Works with many devices
  • Good TV suggestions
  • Responsive support
Cons
  • Software lacks some common buttons
  • Can be laggy at times
