Download the Tata Sky App: First, you will have to download the tatasky app from Google Play store (link below). Once installed on your phone, attach your MP3 Mobile Accessory to your phone's headphone port. You are now good to go. Simply load the remote interface from your app and point the IR transmitter towards your set-top box, just like you do with the regular remote. Enjoy all the functions of your remote now via your mobile.
Pro Tip: Note that the IR signal depends on the audio signal of your phone and it's recommended that for the best performance, keep the volume level of your phone to maximum.
Update: Tata Sky has mentioned that they're developing an updated version of the App for iOS and Android platforms which will no longer require the MP3 accessory. It's likely that they're connecting the channel menu to the central server to which the app will connect. Once you keep your phone's data connection on, the signals from your mobile will be directly sent to the server and then to your set-top box wirelessly, eliminating the need of a special accessory.
If anyone of you is using their android mobile as remote with this accessory, please let me know how well it functions. The user reviews on the official app page are pretty bad and TataSky has discontinued the separate sale of the MP3 accessary.

The app was shutting down automatically. Was trying to use the 'EveryWhere TV' feature but it just didn't work. Has anyone tried using the app?
1. Tata Sky Mobile on the App Store
2. Tata Sky Mobile - Android Apps on Google Play
Note: I'm a Tata Sky user but warn you that their services are p.a.t.h.e.t.i.c. I've heard the same opinion about almost every other DTH operator in India. So basically we are all screwed! 😔
I think we can now change channels on the Tata Sky Remote app running on a smartphone as well. Not sure though. Can someone confirm?lone_ligentChange channels

@Nayeem - have you tried downloading the app on your iPhone: https://www.tatasky.com/wps/portal/TataSky/tsky-app-download ?
Say ta ta to Tata app.
My solution (put in many years back): Stop watching TV. Has worked for me non stop.
The Tata Sky Mobile App is now available on both iOS & Android. This app is supported on Android version 2.3, iOS 4.3 or higher and is customized for both Phones and Tablets.
The older version allowed Tata Sky subscribers to use the app as a universal remote with the use of a dongle. In Phase 2 subscribers are allowed to use the app as a remote control for the set-top box directly without requiring a dongle. This remote sends commands to the set-top box over the home Wi-Fi network, hence you need internet to access the programme guide, remote record and all other sections. This feature Features:
