    Blu Ray control for PS3

    I had an app for my old iPhone that allowed me to use it for a remote control while watching BluRay movies on the PS3. It worked great and had tons of features. The limitation was that it was only useable on certain discs with the PocketBlu feature.

    Is there an app that will allow you to use the Droid X for simular?


    I'm not much of a gamer as my son mainly uses our PS3, I'm not a fan of having to use the DualShock game remotes to watch a movie......
    Current phone is an iPhone 3GS 16g...waiting on Fedex for my new Droid X phones. Buying the chargers, cases, HDMI cables and etc for them now....suggestions appreciated.

    PocketBlu is in the marketplace. That's all you got for right now. Sony does have a media remote app for their bluray players, but no ps3 compatibility as of yet.

    I was just coming back to update...

    pocket BLU

    Media Remote for Android - Android app on AppBrain (Sony's version that does NOT support the PS3)...

    Well it would appear Sony is working on it. No mention of remote functionality, but I'm sure it's coming.

    All good things to those that wait, I suppose.

    It'll happen.

    I can't do another remote...I'm already encumbered with one each for: TV, Reciever, Comcast DVR and PS3 game controllers......ARGHHHHHH.

    I did use one at my brother-in-law's home last week....Logitech Harmony that controlled everything for him. I may be in the market at some point soon. Consolidate to one remote...very nice.
    Current phone is an iPhone 3GS 16g...waiting on Fedex for my new Droid X phones. Buying the chargers, cases, HDMI cables and etc for them now....suggestions appreciated.

    Yeah. I got my brother one for christmas last year. Not cheap, as far as remotes go, but definitely nice. If you have more than 3 remotes you use regularly they're invaluable.
