Seagate adds TV remote control iPhone App

At CES today, Seagate announced a new remote control app for the iPhone/iPod Touch.

The app turns the iPhone's screen into buttons similar to those of its GoFlex TV storage and media streaming system’s original remote control and you can also use the phone to control the player via Wi-Fi.

The remote control can also display the phone's digital photos on the TV screen and then back them up on the hard drive of the GoFlex TV.

Seagate says that the new firmware will be released during the first quarter of this year.
