Google has launched a remote control app for its Internet-connected television platform, Google TV, allowing couch potatoes to move even fewer muscles to tune into their favourite channels.
The app provides a simple, neatly laid out interface designed specifically for the touchscreen and can do everything you can expect from a standard remote controller and them some. For example, if you can’t remember a channel number, you can search for it instead by typing the name.
Better yet, you can also search for shows by simply speaking the title. And there’s a whole raft of other options, including the ability to bookmark your favourite channels and shows, plus stream multimedia from your small screen to the big screen.
The Google TV app is available for download right now in the Android Market and Apple App Store.
