XKCD Couch New Feature - Remote Control

xkcd remote control

XKCD Couch has a new feature. The Remote Control.

The remote control is tucked out the way in a drawer at the bottom of the screen. Press either up or down on your remote control/keyboard to open the drawer. On the remote are 5 new navigation buttons (from left to right):

  • Latest - navigates to the latest comic
  • Skip forward - skips forward 20 comics
  • Random - jumps to a random comic
  • Skip back - skips back 20 comics
  • First - navigates to the first ever comic

Escape or up/down closes the drawer.

Mouse Support

Although the app is intended for use from the couch with a remote control, there’s now mouse support. So all buttons/arrows/drawer handles are clickable plus there’s the image text in the tooltip.

Check it out and enjoy.
