A ton of Frodo related fixes:
- prev / next buttons work again
- shuffle button has been fixed
- thumbnail problems have been solved
Works with iOS 8 & Kodi
Looks great, controls great, hope it's around forever. Use this app daily and find it very useful, reliable and has the best layout, also looks great with the fanart that loads. Somehow this app is still working even though it hasn't been updated for some time.
Running into some small issues with iOS 8.3 & Kodi now. The progress and volume bars are no longer appearing. But I never used them anyway.
More small issues cropping up now. Starting to freeze now and then. Still useable. Still the only app that shows recently added shows as a group to click on which is very convenient.
The best gets better!
I have tried all the XBMC remote apps out there and this is the best. It is super stable, and is even faster than before! I have a large library and almost all the other apps bogged down and crashed but XBMC Commander just keeps running strong. Thanks for a great and strong timely updates!!!
Great remote. Definitely my favorite xbmc app. I have noticed some stability issues, but nothing too bad.
