    Since we started developing the , we have carefully considered user feedback. We have used this feedback to prioritize the features for each version of the app. We have a list of feature requests and we also have our own ideas for improving Able Remote and expanding its capabilities.

    Since we are getting some publicity at the moment, we thought it would be a good opportunity to reach out to all our users and ask them for their wish list of features for Able Remote. Please email us at with your ideas. Get your ideas to us before Tuesday.

    Able Remote 2.1.0 for Google TV has been released in the Android Market:
    Turn your Android device into a Google TV remote. Now a featured app in the Google TV Market!

    Able Remote 2.1.0 includes:
    - Edit feature device buttons are labeled
    - Caller ID and SMS notifications display contact photo
    - Macros added spotlight app support
    - New buttons: previous, next, TV power

    We have seen a number of comments from users who mistakenly think there are remote control features missing from Able Remote. We have decided to release this version with labeled buttons in the Menu/Edit buttons screen to make it clear what each icon means.

    We have also changed the way Caller ID and SMS notifications are displayed to users. If there is a photo in your contacts for the incoming call, then Able Remote will display that on your TV. Note that the new notification mechanism does not add to the notification history on your TV; you can enable the previous kind of notification in the app Settings.

    Able Remote 2.1.8 for Google TV has been released in the Google Play Store:

    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:

    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:

    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.

    From this release you can forward notifications to Google TV even when Able Remote isn't the foreground app. Enable this using 'Menu/Settings/Always Forward Notifications' . You can also specify which Google TV devices should receive the notifications.

    This release also has a new button that allows you to quickly switch between Google TV devices that have previously been found on your network.

    Able Remote 2.2.4 for Google TV has been released in the Google Play Store:

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

    Able Remote 2.2.4 includes:
    - Share and switch button layout.
    - Backup and restore all settings.
    - Prefer HD setting.
    - Fix for channel listings.

    Now you can share your button layout with family and friends. Once you have configured your button layout, use 'Menu/Share Button Layout' to share the layout. You can share the layout by email or use Google Drive or Dropbox. If somebody shares the layout with you, open the layout file on your mobile device to import the button layout. After the layout has been imported, use 'Menu/Switch Button Layout' in Able Remote to select the imported layout.

    Able Remote now allows you to backup all your settings and button layout to an SD card using 'Menu/Backup'. If you need to do a factory reset on your phone or move to a new phone, you can now restore all the settings from the SD card using 'Menu/Restore'.

    There is a new setting that allows you to prefer HD channels. When you select a TV channel from the channel listing, Able Remote will automatically attempt to find the HD version of that channel.

    This release also includes a workaround for a channel listing issue which prevented some users from getting the list of channels. Dish customers will not get channel listings due to a Google TV limitation.

    We apologize for having to do 2 bug fix releases over the weekend. We know that users get irritated with having releases too frequently.

    The first bug fix release was 2.2.7 on Saturday and fixed an issue that some users were experiencing which gave the buttons solid colors.

    The second bug fix release was 2.2.8 on Sunday night which fixed an issue for users of the free version of the app which kept prompting to purchase the app.

    We appreciate your understanding and continued support.

    Able Remote 2.2.9 for Google TV has been released in the Google Play Store:

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

    Able Remote 2.2.9 includes:
    - Enhanced PIP feature.
    - New DVR record button.
    - Additional logos for favorite channels.
    - Fix for sharing issue.

    This release includes an enhanced picture-in-picture (PIP) feature. The enhanced PIP feature allows you to place the TV video anywhere on the screen using gestures. When you click the new enhanced PIP button, you will see a touch control. Use one finger to move the PIP window and use two fingers to resize the window. There are some technical limitations with this feature: you cannot interact with other apps on the screen and you cannot independently control the audio. So get your favorite app ready and then add the enhanced PIP on top.

    There is a new button to allow you to directly record shows on your DVR instead of using the Bookmark/Record button to select the same action.

    We have added many more channel logos for the favorite channels feature. If you got a text label for your channel, try again and see if you get a better image logo now.

    Able Remote 2.3.0 includes:
    - Manually add favorite channels.
    - Change button styling.

    This release includes a new feature to manually add favorite channels. If the channel listing does not include all your favorite channels, now you can add it yourself. If you have an over-the-air tuner, then Google TV will not list those channels; now you can add those too.

    Users have asked for different buttons styles and this release now has a new setting to select from 4 different kinds of button styles.

    We have received requests from users to support popular apps like Tasker and Locale to allow the automation of tasks on Android. Users want to send button commands to their Google TV devices and invoke Able Remote macros.

    However, supporting this kind of automation would impose technical restrictions on Able Remote which we don't want to impose on all of our users. So, we are considering a companion app that would fully support automation and would allow users to automate buttons and Able Remote macros for their Google TV devices. This app would probably cost $0.99.

    We would like to gage interest in such an app, so please leave a comment on this post if you would like us to develop such an app.
