    The Android Market is currently experiencing issues with in-app purchases: https://support.google.com/androidma...nown_issues.cs
    Version 2.0 of Able Remote was released this morning and it relies on an in-app purchase to enable the new edit feature. I decided to pull the app out of the Market temporarily until Google has fixed the issue.

    Able Remote 2.0 for Google TV has been released in the Android Market.
    Turn your Android device into a Google TV remote!

    Able Remote 2.0 includes several new features:
    - Edit device and app buttons (paid feature: $0.99)
    - Support repeat keys for arrow navigation
    - Support forwarding all Android notifications
    - User configurable settings
    - Better phone number matching for Caller ID

    You can download the app for free from the Android Market: https://market.android.com/details?i...android.remote

    Google appears to be rolling out a fix for their in-app billing issues. Google has released a new version of their Market app today (version 3.4.4). If you don't have that version, the launch the Market app, go to My Apps and then get out of the Market app. That seems to trigger an update within a few minutes.

    We've been asked by several users to add automation support in Able Remote. The automation would automatically do several tasks under certain conditions.

    We are considering adding a simple mechanism that a user can configure which would includes all of these options:
    1. Automatically enabling WiFi when you get home,
    2. Switching on Google TV,
    3. Launching an app, or
    4. Changing to a specific channel.

    We would like to get feedback from users about this mechanism and any other ideas they might have that could be added to the automation feature.
