I'm a huge fan of Roomie Remote, and my wife and I both have it on our ipads and iphones, but I've recently switched to an android phone for various reasons. Based on their website, the developer for RR doesn't look like they'll be porting to Android any time soon, so I'm looking for something easy to setup and with a slick interface that is similar on android. I know of iRule, but that was pretty complicated, and I feel like I'd have to invest dozens of hours programming it (plus it's at least $50).

Prefer something cheap (<$30), but (a little) more expensive is ok if it's perfect.

Even something that uses a built in IR blaster (my new phone is the HTC One) would be fine, as long as it supports macros and full control of devices. The only devices I really need to control are:

Pioneer Kuro (KRP-600M)
Pioneer SC-1522k AVR
MCE Controller (for HTPC control)

Thanks!

I can't answer your question, but why not keep your old iPhone as a remote control only.

I certainly thought about that, but I already have the ipad (when I have it in the room with me). The idea was really to have one that is always on me. I wouldn't keep my iphone on me if I didn't use it as a phone.

Plus, it's an iphone 5, and too expensive to keep if I'm not using it.

Lacking a good solution, I might just have to pick up a dedicated ipad mini or ipod touch that stays in the family room. Either that, or repurpose my wife's ipad 1 and get her a new one. There's a solution that would make everyone happy I suppose tongue.gif

Hi Chris

Did you find an alternative for Roomie for Android or did you re-use an old iOS device?

Regards

^^^this. I love it, and while I've never used RR, Touchsquid is incredibly customizable, and easy to do so. You can even download custom buttons to use!
