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.

* And more!

Simply amazing Got tired of playing hunt the remote after my 2yr old kept hiding the boxee one so downloaded this...and was using in about 30 seconds flat!!! Found server instantly, changed sensitivity and was swiping merrily away on my Boxee Hack. Does everything boxee does only with less flaffing (I always seem to have mine upside down...)...simply amazing!!

Rescan rescan rescan rescan I swear to God that's the only thing you this app ever does. I've gotten this thing to work less than five times the entire time I've had it. What's the deal guys? This is a pretty cut and dry, simple app. How hard is it to get something this simple to work as promised.

Fast and simple The app managed to replace my dead remote in a click. It auto syncs with the Boxee Box and work perfectly. You use your screen as a touch pad and there is only the back bitton which stands for the menu button. Tap the screen to click. Be careful about your sensitivity you might move the cursor while clicking. I prefer to my sensitivity at low for a perfect reaction.
