Boxee Thumb Remote

Boxee Thumb Remote


**NOTE: This app has been retired! Which means that I will not provide updates, and Boxee.tv is not going to be supported.

This is the simplest WiFi remote for Boxee you'll find!
With only your thumb, you can control your Boxee. You don't even have to look at the remote app in your phone, just swipe away :)

Navigation with this remote is done by swipe gestures: swipe your thumb up, to navigate up in Boxee. Swipe down to navigate down, etc. Tap to select an item in Boxee.
Simple, ah?

There are other features too:
* Auto detection of a Boxee server.
* Physical BACK button is mapped to Boxee's BACK (set in app settings).
* Android soft-keyboard will send keys to Boxee, e.g., when there is a text-box open in Boxee.
* Seek to a specific time by tapping the progress bar.
* Automatically pauses a playing video upon a phone call!
* Support for password protected Boxee
* And more!

Exactly what I was looking for The original remote is long gone, and my wireless keyboard is fried. Tried this as a last desperate resource, and it works beautifully. A little sensitive, but that just takes some getting used to. Just missing the 'on' feature, but that would be difficult I imagine.

Great app for boxee if you have wifi I think BoxeeBox is a great device. Sucks that Dlink stopped producing and supporting it. Its the only media center that I can transfer media to the external dives connected to id via wifi.

Hasn't been updated in a while, but still works great. Hasn't been updated in a while, but still works great. I've tried the others, this is the best.
