Antair Releases Free Boxee Remote Control App for BlackBerry

Screen shot 2011-01-20 at 10.49.34 PM

I have recently started to really get into Boxee which is why I am really excited about Antair’s new Boxee remote app. The app allows you to simply control your Boxee TV from your BlackBerry though it does require some setup. It also includes advertisements to support the app but they are not that intrusive. My guess is that a paid version will come out soon without those ads.

You can pick up the new Boxee Remote for BlackBerry app at this link in the store. Kudos to Antair for the cool app!

  1. Great app. Just downloaded yesterday. Now i don’t have to use my wired 360 controller.

    One thing I’d like to see is an indicator to let you know that you’re connected to your boxee.

    Otherwise it works like a charm. There’s a slight delay obviously since its going through your WiFi, but not a huge deal for simple navigation. I hope in future versions they clean up the interface a bit. It looks a bit plain and they could make the buttons in the center a lot bigger , which would make it easier on a touchscreen device like the torch.

  2. Thanks for the review guys!

    We’re certainly going to follow up with another release that’ll clean up the interface a bit and add some more convenience features.

    • Been a couple of days, and still loving the remote app. Haven’t had an issue yet.

      I’m glad you guys are continuing development, especially on the interface.

      I’m not familiar with how the remote app connection works, but is Boxee able to transmit data to the app? For example, could Boxee transmit data like movie name, length, type of file, etc to be displayed on your Blackberry while its playing?

  3. i found this app a couple weeks ago and i love it. i would really like to auto connect like the iphone verison, but other than that i love it on my torch.

  4. Really Nice app. Thanks for that news!

    I like Boxee really much, and this is a good way to control boxee…
    Let’s see how it works. :)
