We are getting very close to releasing a new Roku related app – hopefully in the next week or so. We are very excited, and can’t wait to get it into everyone’s hands. Check back here in the next week or so for the big announcement.
As a thank you to our existing Roku Remote users, we will be offering the app for half off during the first few weeks.

A few weeks back, I released an initial version of an app called What To Watch on Netfix. The app is designed to help you find the best movies and shows to watch on Netflix and provide ways to search the Netflix catalog that aren’t available through the Netflix web site.
After release, I found it was difficult to actually find the app by name in the Android Market. Because of this, I’ve renamed the app Netflix Guide HD to make it easier to find and to give it a name that better reflects what it does.
This app is designed specifically for Android Honeycomb tablets to make searching and managing your queues quick and easy. Here are some screen shots:
I just released an updated version of Roku Remote with a couple of nice additions. In this version, I added some additional button images that fit better on Android tablets. I tested this on my Xoom and Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablets and used the emulator to make sure it will look OK on the Galaxy Tab (original) as well as on the Nook Color.
One of the common requests I”ve received over the past year is to allow the use of custom backgrounds. I”ve been putting this off for a while, but it turned out to be pretty オンラインカジノ日本 easy to implement. To use your own custom image as a background skin, copy any image into the RokuRemote folder in your SD card. The image name must be one of the following: Custom1.jpg, Custom2.jpg or Custom3.jpg. You can then select Custom1, Custom2 or Custom3 for your skin in Device Preferences. For best results, use image sizes of 320 by 480, but any image should work and scale to fit the screen.
Finally, I”ve added a hi res launcher icon for those with higher resolution screens.
May 17, 2011: Well, it’s been a busy couple of months. I’ve been spending a lot of time working on my next Android app “What To Watch On Netflix”. It will be a Honeycomb tablet only app (at least at first). I expect to release version 1 within the next two weeks. You can find more info in the What To Watch page here: http://www.jigawattlabs.com/whattowatch
Last week, I was at the Google IO 2011 conference. Wow, just fantastic! Great technical presentations, product announcements, discussions with other Android developers. And getting the free Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, a ChromeBook and a Verizon wireless hotspot wasn’t too bad either!
