XBMC Android remote

Well, this app is really cool.
It allows you to connect to your htpc via wifi and control xbmc with your android 1.6+ phone.
Has a tonne of cool features, and if you have a compatible phone, would do wonders for your media experience.

How does this work, i haven't read into it. I imagine you need to download the plugin for xbmc and then the addon for android?

In the new builds of XBMC there is an option for this remote that you must enable. You then download the Android XBMC app, type in the xbmc computers IP, connect to it and boom, there you go.

You don’t need plugin for the xbmc, just a server network setting and you simply enter the ip address of the xbmc in the setting of the android application and voila.

Well that was easy and straight forward. The only thing i dont like that is missing on the 'remote' is a volume control. Other then that its great, has every 'button' i need otherwise.

the volume control on your device controls the volume of the xbmc.
