Good start but needs some work
Overall, a very good app, but there are few issues: 1. All my albums titled "Greatest Hits" are getting the same cover art regardless of artist. 2. There doesn't seem to be any way to search for music, or create playlists. For example, I'd like to be able to search by track title, artist, and album 3. This app needs to offer options for larger font sizes when displaying information. For example the text on a movie "details" page is tiny on my tablet. 4. The display of TV series seems to use the top portion of the cover art for the series and this doesn't always contain any information. Personally, I'd prefer an option to display TV Series covers in the same way that Movie covers are displayedMore
For movies, music and Tv series it works. And it beautiful. (wow) After selection the remote can be made to appear by swiping up.. there is another remote (presumably the main one) that can be activated from the main screen - I cannot get this remote to do anything. Bummer. Also without this remote things like other video, music videos, favorites, settings, etch are unavailable. The other part is so beautiful I am still inclined to give it 2.5 stars, I sure hope they fix it.More
As others have mentioned, the remote doesn't work, and the Recently Added section tends to crash, but this XBMC app has the most promise, and fits the metro look very nicely. Will definitely deserve a 5-star rating when the bugs are sorted out.More
Decent XBMC Controller But Remote Doesn't Work
The remote, launched from the main screen, doesn't seem to work (pause, ffw, etc...). Also, the TV section shows the old banner-style pictures (Frodo doesn't do banners, anymore). It's possible that this was designed more for Eden and older versions. The fact that it's free does make it more attractive, though. It is a very nice looking app. The album covers look a lot better than they do in some other XBMC apps. I don't like that there is no means of contacting the developer, from the app. Any feedback will have to go through the review (and that can give potential users a bad feel for the app). One such feedback is that it doesn't list all of the artists, at least for me. I am currently playing an artist that isn't in the artists list. Obviously, I didn't start playing it from the app (another XBMC app listed this particular artist).More
Does Not Work!
Waste of time. You cannot change any settings once you initially configure it. To change ip, etc, you have to uninstall it and reinstall it. Once you do properly configure it, the remote controller does not work at all!!!!! Why would anyone give this more than one star is beyond me. The only thing good a the remote interface but again when it does not do what it is supposed to do, what good is the interface.More
It works but has quirks
It works. However it has some quirks in it. For instance every single tv show displays the various season covers as the same cover from the first show the app ever looked at. Some tv banners do t load either, just see the thinking circle going round and round. It looks the best visually of the other remotes out so far.More
Raspberry Pi Great!
Works great with OpenELEC 3.0 running on Pi. Would like greater queue control/management (can't queue plat list). Remote is not working. Eden support?More
Ads block player controls.
This is, for the most part, an excellent XBMC app. I like it more than the other offerings on the store. However, the background images is a generic, overused image seen on tons of "free wallpaper" sites, and worst of all, the ads completely overlap some of the player controls. Fix it!More
Nice interface, but it needs to be able to toggle posters for the tv series screen and it has a bug where it won't scroll seasons in the tv season screen.More
I use posters on xbmc for series. The xbmc remote must use banners but instead of downloading its own banners for the remote it tries showing posters which doesn't work. How do I fix this issue?More
