Following the newly updated
Remote application from Apple, there's now a new remote application
) that allows you to control your XBMC Media Center with the iPhone. Obviously to use it you'll have to have a computer (or Xbox) running XBMC, which is available in versions for Xbox, Mac, Linux, and Windows. Features include:
- Play, queue and shuffle the media on XBMC
- View cover art for albums, TV Shows and movies
- View artist and album reviews and information
- 'Standard' remote mode. Control XBMC with standard remote buttons
I have seen reports
that it will work with the Mac-only XBMC fork Plex
(though perhaps without images). It basically looks like it does for XBMC what Apple's Remote app does for the Apple TV.
XBMC is available
from iTunes for $4.99.
