I'm curious about what professional home installers are doing these days for nice home theater installations. I've been married to my Marantz RC9500 for a long time because I can do so much with graphics but I would like to use iPads and iPhones instead for the better touch control and higher resolutions.

I've tried the apps out there, like Roomie, but my experience has been that using an iPad or iPhone is cumbersome, what with the swipe to unlock it, then run the app, cumbersome enough that I've stuck with my old Marantz's.

I wonder if there's a method for iPads/iPhones that pro's use that make them more like a remote (no swipe or opening apps). I've seen similar products in RV's too, where they use an iPad that seems to be 100% dedicated to the task of automating the RV and no longer really acts as an iPad in the traditional sense.

Any feedback is appreciated!
