XBMC, one of the most popular home media platforms available, has pushed it’s way into the Android atmosphere with the official release of the new XBMC Remote for Android devices.
This app will allow you to, as suggested, utilize your Android device as a remote control for XBMC. The company made some comments highlighting some features of the app:
There is still a lot to do, but the basics should work fairly well. Besides using the app as pure remote control with the look of the famous Xbox DVD Dongle, you’ll be able to browse your music, movie and TV shows library. Browse through your albums by genre or artist, select or queue an album without even turning on your television? No problem. Make incoming calls automagically pause the film you’re watching? Go to settings and check the option. You can find a complete list of features on the project page. Also check out the screenshots gallery.
The app already has a rating of 5 stars. If you would like to download the app for yourself, it requires your Android device be running at least Android 1.5, and your XBMC be on version 9.11.
