If you're an owner of WD's set-top box, then an app just landed in the Market that's going to make your life a lot easier: a remote control. That's right, now you can control your WD box directly from your Android smartphone or tablet.

The app connects to your WD TV over your Wi-Fi connection, and offers everything you would expect from a remote control designed for the device, including one-touch access to every online service available, keyboard entry using Android's on-screen keyboard, a gesture pad for quick navigation, and, probably one of the most convenient, the ability to connect multiple Android devices at once (and play multiplayer games).

WD TV Remote requires Android 2.1+, so it should work with basically every major device to hit the market within the last year and a half. Also, in order to use the app, you'll need a 3rd generation WD TV Live Hub or TV Live system (released around October of 2011), as well as wireless access to your WD TV unit.

The app is free in the Market, hit the widget to grab it!
