Sofa for Kodi

Remote App for Apple Watch

Posted by Matthias Schmidt on April 24, 2015

Just in time for the release of Apple Watch I’ve finished my first watch app Sofa for Kodi. A remote control for Kodi/XBMC. Something I wanted for myself.

It has one purpose and that’s starting movies and tv shows on the big screen right from your wrist. If your Kodi setup is anything like mine, a touch on the watch will start the movie, boot your AV-Receiver, fire up your TV and change all channels accordingly to present you the flick.


Of course there is a little more to it than just starting movies and tv shows:

  • see which movies or episodes you’ve seen already
  • play, pause, stop and seek
  • update Kodi library (through force touch)
  • use multiple Kodi installations in parallel (through force touch)

The last one is for people who have Kodi in multiple rooms (e.g. living room and bedroom). With Sofa for Kodi you can control them all.


Sofa for Kodi is available for download on the App Store.
