Estimations by the oganisation for Economic Co-operation and Development show that by the year 2020, the average household will contain 50 devices connected to the internet at any one time. Dubbed the Internet of Things, or IoT, this trend will surely continue to grow, as people are now using more apps on their Smartphones and tablets to control these appliances. Here we take a look at some of the coolest apps available which do just that.

1. XBMC (Free on Android)

This all-in-one XBMC app allows you to remotely control your TV, access music, images and video, all from your mobile device. Gone are the infuriating days of having too many remotes, and forgetting what each one is for.
