Boxee Remote App Now In App Store

Boxee has announced that the Boxee Remote App for the iPhone is now available for free in the App Store. The new Boxee app lets users control Boxee running on a computer with one of two modes. Buttons mode gives users a set of onscreen buttons to control with, while their Gesture mode turns the app into a futuristic trackpad-like interface. (Video after the break.)


  • the boxee remote app has two modes: Gesture and Buttons
  • in the Gesture mode you need to hold down your thumb and move it around in order to navigate.
  • clicking on the boxee logo acts as Select/Play/Pause
  • dragging the boxee logo to the edges of the screen will act as a continuous up/down/left/right
  • clicking in an input field will open up the iPhone Qwerty keyboard and will enable you to easily enter text
  • the app works over WiFi, so make sure the WiFi on your iPhone is turned on

They are also looking for suggestions about how to improve the app, which you can share with them at
