Enter Text On Apple TV With Your iPhone

Here’s a tip for you Apple TV owners. Navigating the Apple TV is usually pretty easy, but trying to enter text to do something like search YouTube from your TV using that tiny little Apple remote is a major pain. Fortunately they built a feature into their Remote app for the iPhone that solves this problem.

It turns out that if you have the Remote app running on your iPhone or iPod touch and you go to a search screen on your Apple TV, the same search field will pop up on your iPhone, along with the standard on-screen keyboard to type your search with. Charachters are entered on the Apple TV as you type.

If you haven’t yet, you can get Apple’s free Remote app for the iPhone and iPod touch in the App Store.
