Please remove other people having control from my tv’s. I can’t watch anything on tv due to people that don’t live with me, turning my tv’s on nd off constantly nd pausing nd playing my shows or movies it’s frustrating nd annoying nd very upsetting that even neighbors that are strangers having control over my tv’s!! Please make the app that can be privately used for our own tv’s nd not having others outside of my house controlling my tv’s. PLEASE FIX THIS! Im tired of strangers controlling my tv’s!!!!!!!
Works pretty wonky - very touchy controls. Will diconnect BT with my Bose QC35s intermittently (from 10 ft in front of TV!). Have to exit and close app and restart too frequently. Sometimes simply stops responding as a remote, and again have to quit and reload. Gets so frequent about once a month I just delete the app and reload it…and that seems to help for awhile. It’s the only app that supports private listening so I use it…but I think it is pretty poor and inconsistent.
Won’t open even after close/re-open; private listening cuts out frequently; used to work much better
This app is everything and some but the best part, it’s free. So convenient and works all my streaming. I love it!!
Crashes without fail on a brand new up to date phone. Completely useless.
Fail to open and run, thanks for the update. Now update the app and actually make it work!!!
Love the app, but it doesn’t control the volume which is why I downloaded the app. My other remote no longer controlled the volume. If it did that it would be perfect.
Some days it works. Most of the time it doesn’t. Had a get an entirely new remote. Very inconvenient and annoying. Even manually trying to connect to the IP address didn’t work.
I thought it was great being able to navigate and resume tv shows. However after season 1 the app gets extremely glitchy. The resume button shows season 1 regardless of what season you're on and many times while navigating to the appropriate season and scrolling down to the right episode, the screen flashes and brings you back to season 1 again. Additionally, the progress bar on episodes frequently shows the episode has been completed regardless of actual progress. If these issues were fixed, this would be a 5 star app.
Never connects fully, more annoying than anything! Seems this has been an issue for over a year. Developers, PLEASE UPDATE! My favorite feature is the private listening, when it works, which is seldom.
