Apple’s Remote app is useful for me now
Wow, friggin’ finally… Ever since I tried out the Apple Remote app and realized it had limited integration with the Apple TV, I was cursing it. That became worse when the Boxee remote app came out and was so much more useful, mostly because of its on-screen keyboard that allowed a lot less painful text entry on the Apple TV. I had uninstalled the Apple Remote app so I didn’t realize it had been updated in the way described in the TUAW article. I will definitely have to reinstall it now. Even though we use the Apple TV less because of the whole Boxee v. Hulu hubbub, we still use it for renting movies. Having the keyboard on the iPhone will make searching for movies a lot more pleasant.
