Free ios xbmc remote

When we wrote up all of our previous XBMC guides we also covered an excellent iOS app that could be used to control all of the XBMC instances running in your house. While the app, XBMC Commander, is very polished and well worth the $4 in my opinion there will always be users looking for free alternatives. A couple of weeks ago the official iOS XBMC remote app was released, and it’s free (iTunes link)!

With the Official XBMC Remote you are able to do any of the following and more:

  • Control XBMC’s volume
  • Manage multiple XBMC instances
  • Live view of currently playing playlist
  • Display music cover art shown where available
  • Display movie poster and actor thumbs where available
  • Play and queue albums, songs, genre selections and much more directly without having to turn on your TV
  • Browse files directly

I definitely still prefer to use the XBMC Commander app myself because I find the interface to be a bit nicer, but it might be a tough call for anyone that hasn’t already purchased XBMC Commander.
