Did you watch Apple's VP draw on his wrist during the Apple Watch announcement and wonder "why can't my Wear watch do that?" In typical XDA fashion, one enterprising forum member has brought similar functionality to Android Wear with a twist; it works on phones and watches alike, with other platforms on the way!

Control BSPlayer From The Comfort of Your Android With BSRemote
Lets face it. The only reason why universal controls sell as much as they do is because there are not enough aplications for our mobile devices to control everything that we would like… or are there? Today, we stumbled upon an app called BSremote for Android, created by XDA member gapipro. As its name so obviously implies, the app was specifically designed to control BSPlayer for desktop PC. This app will allow you to sit back in your favorite couch, far from the computer, while you control the playback functions of your favorite media player. Start, stop, forward, even look for clips. No need to even get close to the computer, as long as you have your trusty Android device close by.
If you use BsPlayer regularly, please drop by the thread and download the app and leave some feedback with suggestions or if you run into any bugs.
