Anybody using xbmc this is the best option you have for a remote i recommend this app, not only does it give you an awesome remote that both the functionality and that it is graphically pleasing but the response time for support is outstanding. I recommend you try this free app and if satisfied purchase the full version
By far the best xbmc remote I’ve tried.
Brilliant app. Connects easily to xbmc. has to be one of the most useful apps I have. Excellent.
Tried a few different remotes and found that this was the best. Works great with our Linux and ATV2. Was totally happy with the free version but upgraded to full version for added features. The support is EXCELLENT! Replies to questions within hours. Great App!
Soulmote works great! So well in fact, it worked whel all other I tried failed. Since the update, it works even better. My xbmc system runs on Linux Mint, has a large database and this software handled it without a hiccup. My initial issue of cover art not showing was taken up with the developers. They replied to my query in a few hours with possible solutions which worked great. If ou are in the market for a xmbc remote, look no further than SoulMote
Best XBMC remote on the iPhone
Tried a few remotes but this is definitely the best, very easy to set up and use and works fine on version 10 “Dhama” and 11 “Eden”. Perfectly compliments an XBMC media centre 🙂
Easily the best xbmc remote iOS app I’ve used to date
Best Remote for xbmc
Dont waste time on the others, Much easier to install n gets the job done!
The Best Out there
It’s simply the best xbmc remote I’ve seen to date, and dare I say a must for an Xbmc enabled ATV hehehe!!!
All of the functionality I was looking for.
