    are you aware that you need to purchase an attachment for your phone to turn it into a controller and its not just an app? I think its infared or something like that.

    Not trying to jack thread, but im waiting to use my iphone has a ps3 controller so i can navigate netflix and use keyboard function.

    I just bought the Samsung PN63C8000 and it controls it just lovely, it connects through the network since the tv is on it. Pretty cool I can use the phone to type into all the apps and stuff..ect..ect

    If you want to use your iPhone as a remote, the two best remotes I have seen are these. L5 Remote and New Kinetix. Cost around £60.

    ...not if your components are wifi enabled. i have two televisions and two roku units controlled by my phone without any additional hardware.

    phoneflix has a decent roku remote. too bad it's not standalone.
