TubeMote updated and now working with HTC EVO

The last time we talked about TubeMote, a free service/utility that turns mobile devices into remote controls for the web, it wasn't working properly with the HTC EVO. In response to G&E's coverage, the fine folks at TubeMote fixed a few Android-specific bugs and also let me know about an update that added support for Justin.tv and Scribd. And now I'm pleased to say that it works and is fully functional with the EVO.

The new version of TubeMote includes page up/down arrows for a better remote web browsing experience, so now you can really lean back and use your EVO to surf the internet and watch videos on your browser-connected TV, large monitor, or computer screen without having to interact with a keyboard or mouse.

All you need to do to start using TubeMote on your EVO is to sign up for a free account, which will automatically create your custom channel. Then you just sign into your account on the EVO, go to your custom channel URL on your computer/TV/whatever, and start using the EVO to control the web.

There's still no way to click on links on webpages, though, so TubeMote continues to be best used for YouTube and now Justin.tv.
