Boxee – the web-centric media aggregator (it’s like Windows Media Center, only better and not exclusive to Microsoft) – might be getting an Android up in the future. The company updated their job listings to show that they’re looking for a lead iPhone and iPad developer. This isn’t the relevant bit, obviously, but at the end of the “Requirements” list, they state that “Android development experience is a plus”.


I’m guessing we’ll be getting something more akin to the iPhone’s app: a remote that will be able to control your Boxee interface via WiFi. The sad thing is that having Android experience for this job is a “plus” and not a “must”: meaning if they end up hiring someone without Android experience, then we might not be getting an Android app.

Tough, but I imagine they’d begin looking for a dedicated Android developer at that point, anyway. If you want to see what all the fuss is about Boxee, head over to their site now.
