Boxee Thumb Remote

Available in :
**NOTE: This app has been retired! Which means that I will not provide updates, and 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!

Awesome The app found my Boxee as soon as I started it up. That was it fir setup, no fuss. Was blown away when my phone rang and it paused Boxee automatically! A must have even for those whose dog didn't chew the factory Boxee remote control!

The Best Boxee Remote For me this is by far the best mobile phone remote you can get; it is so easy to use. However, I can only comment as someone who has Boxes on an Iomega device. I wish the developer hadn't opted to stop developing the app, but my thanks to him for sharing it with us.

Love it This is a great app works great im using it on my s4 the only bad thing about the app is u cant turn your boxee on if you could do that it would be a 5 star

Awesome remote control The best part is that I can use it without looking at it! It's that simple. Oh, it also has a keyboard. Perfect app for my Boxee box.

Locks up the Boxee Screensaver The app is one of the best boxee remotes, but if your Boxee goes into screensaver mode while this remote app is running your Boxee will eventually freeze up requiring a hard reboot. This can burn your screen if you have a plasma. I think it may have something to do with all the extra information this app provides about the currently playing file.

awesome controls I know this app has been retired but it's still the best Boxee control out there.
