The dirtiest thing in a hotel room is the TV remote. Guests do all kinds of things with their hands and then use the remote. It's gross, but now there is help.

LodgeNet, the guys that install TVs and Internet service in about two million American hotel rooms, have issued a free app. Download the app and you may never have to touch a hotel room remote control again.

The remote allows your iPhone to turn the TV on and off, change channels and turn the sound up and down and even order movies.

There is also information about the hotel and local city and events.
