TAKE FULL CONTROL OF XBMC & KODI FROM YOUR PHONE

Sometimes it’s just much simpler to control something with your phone rather than another remote or keyboard. As you know Prometheus comes with a remote/keyboard which works great. However, if you’re one of the early Pro buyers then you might have one of the larger, slightly clunky full blown keyboard. The newer slim line boards aren’t so bad, but at the end of the day it’s another remote that is bound to be left laying around the living room.

Now a days, we all have our phones on us pretty much all the time so it seems like a given that we should be able to control Prometheus with our smart phones. After all, they are ‘smart’.
