Several apps out there can turn your smartphone into a smart remote control with the help of some other hardware. One of those apps is the Peel Smart Remote app. Peel has announced some interesting new milestones for the application.
Peel announced this week that the Smart Remote app has passed 50 million activations. The app doubled its user base in the last six months. Peel says that if the growth of the app continues at the same pace, it will have 125 million activations by the end of 2014.
Another interesting fact about the Peel app is that it handles 85 million unique remote commands every day. On Oscar Sunday, the Peel remote app handled 130 million unique commands. That beat the previous record of 110 million commands during the Super Bowl.
Peel's Smart Remote app now handles about 2.5 billion commands each month. The app offers personalized viewing recommendations on smartphones and tablets. The app can be used to launch content on the big screen. Peel is a free app that is available on the App Store and Google Play. Peel launched in Europe and Asia in late 2012.
