Thanks for all the updates!

1. May I request an option for Celsius degrees for the weather widget.

2. It would be nice if you make the server app to work on tablets and eventually phones. I am using my tablet to watch movies on my TV and can only use a mouse as a remote.

We will add this to the feature request list. We currently default to fahrenheit for USA and celsius for the rest of the world.

Not sure I understand your use case. The server app will only work on Google TV.

1. It is OK to auto select it, but I am in EU and it shows fahrenheit. I can't change the zipcode ofmy revue to non USA.

2. Something like this app: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... mVtb3RlIl0.

Since GTV is Android then it should not be a big problem and you would expand your target market.

We will have a solution when Google TV becomes available in countries outside the US.

Able Remote 2.1.8 for Google TV has been released in the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... oid.remote

The ultimate Google TV remote. Turn your Android device into a Google TV remote. A Google TV featured app!

Able Remote 2.1.8 includes:
- Removed ads from free version
- G+ trending feature
- Improved weather widget alerts
- Landscape support

There is a new Trending button which displays trending topics from Google+ posts. It is based on the Google+ API which is still in beta so this feature should be considered experimental. Since the API does not provide the list of trending terms, the Google search engine trending keywords are used for now.

Many users have asked for landscape support for their tablets. You can now enable that using Menu/Settings/Screen Orientation within Able Remote. We are reusing the current design. We hope to bring a different user interface in the future that will make better use of the bigger screen space.

Able Remote 2.2.1 for Google TV has been released in the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... oid.remote

The ultimate Google TV remote. Turn your Android device into a Google TV remote. A Google TV featured app!

Able Remote 2.2.1 includes:
- Voice commands for playing Google Music
- Android widget to control Google TV Play Music
- Dash character for number pad for local channels


A new voice command has been added to launch Google's Play Music app on Google TV. To launch the app and start playing music, click on the voice command button and say "play". To start playing a particular track say "play" and the track name, for example "play firework". The track name is matched by the Google Play Music app and can be strict and might not always match your track. Also, if a track is matched it will play automatically, but if a playlist or album is matched it will only be selected due to technical limitations with the API.

There is also a new Android widget for your mobile device to remotely control the Google Play Music app on your Google TV. On your mobile device, press 'Menu/Add/Widgets'. Select 'Able Remote Play Music' from the list of widgets. You will be prompted to select which Google TV to control. The widget has a button to play or pause the music and another button to select the next track. The current track and artist is displayed on the widget. You can configure multiple widgets, each for a different Google TV.

Able Remote 2.2.2 for Google TV has been released in the Google Play Store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... oid.remote

The ultimate Google TV remote. Turn your Android device into a Google TV remote. A Google TV featured app!

Able Remote 2.2.2 includes:
- Favorite channels
- Double-click volume adjustment
- Buttons for selecting touch panels
- Replaced widgets feature with weather button
- Improved network support for Google Play Music widget

Users have requested the ability to configure a list of favorite channels and be able to jump between those quickly. In this release we have added a new button at the bottom of the screen which allows users to configure up to 21 favorite TV channels. Clicking on an empty space will allow you to select your favorite channel. Clicking on a configured channel will make your TV change to that channel.

When you jump from live TV to Google Play Music or YouTube, there is usually a big jump in the volume which forces you to quickly adjust the volume level. In this release we have added a feature which can be enabled in Menu/Settings to quickly adjust the volume. Simply double-click on the physical volume buttons and the volume will quickly adjust by the configured amount.

Users have requested a faster way to jump between the various touch panels. In this release we have added buttons for each touch panel which allows you to jump to any of the touch panel directly.

Based on analytics, users are mostly using the weather and clock widgets. We have decided to remove our proprietary widget feature and replace it with a weather button that will display the weather and clock as an overlay.
