We recently purchased a Roku Digital Video Player at our office and have been experimenting with it. The Roku remote is very simple with minimal buttons which is nice in most scenarios but whenever you have to type anything into the Roku it is fairly annoying that there is not a keyboard available. To resolve that issue and require you to have one less remote on your coffee table it is worth checking out DVPRemote which is an iPhone application that lets you take full control of your Roku device. Below is more information regarding DVPRemote including some of the benefits of this iPhone application.
I have been using various applications on the iPhone for a long time now so I wanted to write about many of the iPhone applications I use on a regular basis. One application that I have recently started using a lot again is iPhlix which I use to manage my Netflix account. The reason I have been using it a lot more is because I can queue movies in your Netflix Instant Queue to watch on my Xbox 360. If I am out somewhere waiting for an appointment or waiting at a restaurant it is nice to be able to search movies to queue in my Netflix Instant Queue to watch when I get home. The iPhlix application cost money however it is much more solid than the Phone Flicks application which is free. Below I will describe each application and provide screenshots so you can make the decision if it is worth spending money on iPhlix versus just downloading Phone Flicks for free.
