Hey there peeps,

I've got a good app idea for any XBMC users, Basically just a remote (navigation) for XBMC on the gear 2. Just a simple left right up down select.

I've had a look at it myself but I am in no means an experienced Java developer nor html. But there is an app for android called yatsee which can control every aspect of XBMC AND its open source! (Source code located here: github.c o m/Tolriq/Yatse2.

Now if that app is running on your android phone, surely you could hook into it and just control the remote features to it? I dunno maybe I'm just thinking too much

But I would love to see this on the Gear 2. If anyone want to take up the challenge please post in this thread! I'll even donate to the dev!

Cheers!


EDIT: Maybe also play, pause, rewind etc. on a separate tab in the app? like swipe left if possible?

There's already an app "wish list" thread where I made this request awhile ago. Unfortunately doesn't look like any developments. Also sent request for Unified Remote developers to port or make a client for the watch to hook into the UR app on the phone for simple control - but I just don't think developers see Tizen/Gear 2 as a good use of their resources.

If there is a phone widget for your remote, you could try wearable widget app as a workaround.
