    Still dOesnt support v12 (frodo) so no love for the app right now, January 30, 2014. If it works again, I'll be glad to return to five stars. I'll be reaching out to the developer to see if/when an update will occur. Original review: Shows TV shows and movies in a better way and prefer this app over the ipod/iphone xbmc app. I've had xbmc setup for a while for remote controlling, so setup was a breeze for me. Thanks, well worth the price to buy!!

    Great app! Works as described. Can't ask for much more.

    Navigation issues in a lot of menus. Can't move in certain menus (like entering txt). Something is broken, others work fine. Great UI and interface. Fix this major bug and this would be the best wp7 xbmc remote.

    Please add ignore articles for next update. IE- the, a, etc. Its annoying to navigate to the T's for The Walking Dead ;)

    The update ate my settings. Before, it was great. Now, not so much. The whole point of a remote is to enable laziness, meaning not re-entering settings.

    V3.0 now supports both dharma and Eden. Please try and let me know how you like it. Also the trial version now is fully functional with no limitations. I hear you guys and I hear that I didn't do a good job of explaining the setup. So here you go.. A video tutorial for setting up XBMC Remote and XBMC PC. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLFZkZhJJNo For additional support, please post on http://ashterisk.wordpress.com/xbmc-remote-for-windows-phone-7/ XBMC Dharma just released. Yeahh.. Enjoy..

    Poor implementation. Tried it for some time before giving up. The other xbmc remote can see my music library but this one can't.

    Superior Application! Ingenious and seamless connection to XBMC! Request that " Music Video " with "Playlist " option get added.
