Anyone using iRule with an Android?

I am interested in the iRule remote control and would like to use it with my android devices.

I have been reading their support forum and it looks like the Android version of their program is a "red headed stepchild" and not very well supported or updated. A very old post stated they had added a programmer to the android team and they were working on updating the android version to match the iPhone version. Reading their year old support posts are not inspiring a lot of confidence in their product.

Does anyone here use iRule's android version?

I did play with it for a bit, but life keeps getting in the way of my fun... In a few months I hope to be able to do some more work on my room and then I'll have time to give it a real test..

I de would like to hear how it works out for you... I am debating about getting it but I am hearing some bad things about getting it working.... I am not a programmer or I would have my CQC up and running again, and not be looking at iRule. I tried iRule and I can't even log into it... It keeps saying username and or password is bad.

I am looking at trying IRULE out but it seems like a lot of people here are not using it just yet. I may give it a go.
