I have just used the gestures feature on my ATV and it is AWESOME! It is worth downloading and is really easy to use. I wish I could purchase a game from the App store and then transfer it onto the ATV using the iPhone / iPod Touch as a wireless controller? That would be cool to play Cro-Mag or Monkey ball on the TV! Come on Apple there must be a way???

Good to see that Apple are still continuing work on the Apple TV. I think the ATV has so much potential and using the gestures on the remote app on either an iPhone or iPod Touch is a step in the right direction. I hope the work continues?
