Almost useless in my case I installed it to control an archos 35. If u can't see what you are doing on the archos device what good is it for? U can just use directly the archos. The remote is good only for controlling the volume and if you're lucky, u might manage to play pause your station or media.
Doesn't Work :( Unable to detect the Archos Gaming Tablet. Just sits there saying "No Archos Device Detected" Tried rebooting both devices and trying again again over last two weeks (remote controls on Archos are enabled etc etc) but nothing :( a load of rubbish really. If they were serious about providing this they would offer better instructions and a list of Archos devices it is compatible with...clearly its not all of them!
Excenllent Remote Controle Nothing is perfect, but this app is pretty much close. I was thinking of buying a bluetooth keyboard for my Archos 101 G9 so I can use it more efficiently, and to be more productive. Then I remember I had installed this app on my LG motion phone. It works great: media, touchpad, D-pad, keyboard. It has all that I need.
Limited use Update has improved it. What would be perfect would be the ability to choose music on the controller to play on the Archos 35. Until it has that, it's a very mediocre system.
What happened? I once had it working flawlessly but then now its not even detecting my tablet. I have one of the models listed. I'm baffled.
Archos Gamepad Works like a charm on my gamepad. No other app can perform like this, exclusive for archos devices only.
