Armchair Remote

Armchair Remote is a simple and easy to use remote control for Kodi.

We think it's pretty awesome, but don't just take our word for it. See what some of our users have to say:

"Very impressed with this app. Easy to use due to its intuitive & uncluttered interface. Makes organising & watching films a much simpler experience."

"Great app, clean and simple design with a brilliant watch app thrown in. Not sure pausing my movies from my watch will ever feel any less cool!!"

"Great app. Does exactly what I'd hoped for. Easy to navigate, smooth transitions, great appearance. Definitely recommend."

With helpful 'now playing' controls, making quick adjustments to the movie position has never been easier, jump back or forward by 30 seconds with the tap of a button - ideal for when someone is talking through an important part of the movie and you need to 'just wind it back a bit'!

- Gesture Pad
Built in gesture pad: for when you need to step outside the comfort zone of your media library, adjust some settings with Kodi or get past a language selection menu. Swipe to navigate, tap to select, double tap to go tap, tap and hold for a context menu.

- Apple Watch
If reaching for your iPhone seems like too much effort, take advantage of the Apple Watch app. Browse and play your Movies, TV Shows and Music collection directly from your Apple Watch. Once playing, make adjustments to the position (via plus/minus 30 second buttons), change the volume and play/pause.
