Stoked to see finally a hotel that lets you stream your own apps with chrome cast . But it doesn’t work!
This would be the app with no stars. Couldn’t get it to pair and the app is so dated I doubt it works on modern IOS. Their patent is proudly presented but every attempt to pair is greeted with a generic ‘network error’ regardless if I’m on cell or the hotel WiFi. Easier to just use the remote.
The last time this app got any tlc from developers was three years ago. That shows how much they seem to care about keeping the app up to date. Scroll through other reviews to see common problems that other users have, no point in typing up the same things.
Tried multiple devices, several times, and just does not work.
I travel way too much for work. Out of say between the 60-80 hotels I stayed at over the year, only 2 of the hotels had the feature on the tv to use the app. But of the 2 it worked on.....I loved it. Since most hotels don’t have useful guides, this would be great if more hotels where setup to use the app.
The concept behind this app is not robust and not user friendly and time consuming, there are hotels that let you connect to streaming apps through the TV (think smart TV) I now understand why this app is rated so low, hotel franchises should avoid this approach, it is no good for the end user, I’m going to sit back and delete the app and stream from my phone thank you very much :)
Does what it is supposed to do but UI is lame and not updated in many years. For hotels the support it, you can use phone as remote which is helpful. In the app, just tap name of channel you want instead of flipping around for it on the gross hotel remote. Been in 1 hotel that uses this app to let you cast from Amazon/netflix/Hulu apps to the TV, that’s super good. I even don’t mind paying 99 cents for one year of guide access. Some hotel TV’s have really lame slow guides that are painful to scroll through. But for crying out loud, it should be much easier to use and read in this app. No updates since iOS10 ?!
Loaded it up and was able to stream Hulu and Netflix without problems to the TV. For those that complained about the playback quality being poor, it’s the Hotel wireless speed that affects the quality, not the app.
No search function!
Switching channels works, and is more convenient than using the dumb hotel RC. On/Off also works, but volume control doesn’t - huh..? Having to pay a subscription for the guide is bizarre as it’s free on the hotel TV. It’s also kind of dishonest as it’s an obvious attempt to rake in dollars through forgotten subscriptions that silently renew annually. Why not simply make money with ads at the bottom and offer more right out of the box..?
