Users can use the app to swipe to adjust the volume, change TV channels by tapping on a network icons and control recorded video playback. Control options are also on offer for video services usch as Netflix hosted on game consoles, too. Logitech also says that the Hub is compatible with the Harmony Touch, the remote's RF signals are translated into IR and Bluetooth format.
