Shows "There were no results. Please check your spelling and try again." for all categories when trying to make a new remote. It used to work fine, and was my favorite IR Remote app until this happened. Also the IR Remote widget doesn't do anything when I press the buttons. I can still use the remotes I have, which is good, but I can't make any new ones until this is fixed.

Edit to add: Found another video that gave slightly better information & now have a workable, if limited, remote for my 10 year old tv. However, the ads! Who thought it was a good idea to have video ads play when using the app as a TV remote? Another issue is that to access digits to select a tv channel, my phone has to be turned side on which is awkward. Installed ok. Opened ok. Easy to choose an appliance and a brand. At that point the information offered in the help window is inadequate. I'm offered a code set of 19 in total but it's not really clear how I'm supposed to choose. I've watched the YouTube video and it similarly skims right over this important piece of information and there is no other link to provide further information. In the absence of anyway of knowing which code set to select, I simply chose the 1st one. The default layout is fine & looks functional but is the incorrect one for my TV. An improved method for correctly determining the correct choice of code set plus an expanded help function would make this actually useful.

Works and isn't a big rush of ads - that fact shocks me, especially in light of the other reviews. Still, it didn't have an LG service remote option, which is what I needed to disable that freaking ABSL static image dimming that's making me want to pull what's left of my hair out, but at least it actually worked as a regular remote...
