Roomie Remote is an iOS only universal remote app that uses your network to control your home theater and home automation devices. The app sports an impressive list of supported devices. The latest update to the app has added the Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick to that list. Roomie will auto-discover Fire TV devices and control them over your network. The app even supports keyboard input via its own on-screen keyboard.
The number of alternate ways to control your Fire TV continues to grow. Roomie is now one of several apps capable of controlling the Fire TV via a smartphone or tablet. Last month we saw high end home automation systems gain Fire TV support via a set of pricey drivers. And if you prefer a good old fashioned physical remote, there’s always Logitech’s Harmony line of universal smart remotes.
Roomie costs $10. Probably ought to mention that in your review.
Sorry. This post wasn’t meant to be a review of Roomie at all. Just letting people know about the change.
wow I just deleted my old remote apps only to find out it costed 10$
iOS7 only? Worthless.
I use Roomie for my FireTV, but I am struggling to get a long key press to work, for example, to call up the channel list in Mediahhh.
Can anyone help?
