Hi, Iʼm Adam! 👋 Iʼm an indie developer living in the UK building apps for iOS and other Apple platforms.Iʼve been building apps since 2015 and went full-time indie in 2022 after working at a startup for four years as an iOS developer. I created TV Remote as the remote app that was made by the manufacturer of my TV had not been updated in many years so appeared as a letterbox since it had not been designed to accommodate for the notch on newer iPhone devices. After some reverse engineering, I soon had a working app that supported Shortcuts and a nice look and feel. Some users discovered my app but found that it wasnʼt compatible with their television so I started to support more and more of the most popular sets. Now TV Remote supports many brands and has added many new features since release such as the ability to customise layouts, set themes and control TVs with interactive widgets.
