An open source, full-featured remote for XBMC. It features library browsing, direct remote control and a slick interface. It's still beta but we're getting there.

Please see Wiki page on Google code before rating down because of private data access. This app is open source after all.

Please note that this app is now available to Honeycomb tablets, but it's far from optimized. We're working on that.

Use the hardware buttons of your phone while the remote is running.

There is a complete and updated installation guide in the Wiki, featured on the front page of the website.

Please use the forum or the bugtracker. Comments in here are read sporadically but more for amusement than for serious debugging.

We're working on a next-gen version that will provide a new look, new features and (hopefully) less bugs!

    I am new to XMBC, and Ubuntu. I installed this app before using the program, and I am blown away. I am very happy with it. I can Hit 'Watch Movies' tap a movie, and instantly I am watching it. The host program itself is gorgeous. Directories that aren't named properly are even rendered appropriately with cover and screenshots. Amazing. Better than Media Browser (Windows). I'm hooked!

    Worth 5 stars if it has a few little things like volume controls.

    Can't get it to work right with my Pi. Perhaps it's not meant to. It will command to play something but menu controls don't work and neither do things like power down.
