It hardly keeps a stable connection between a Samsung S7 Edge and an Nvidia Shield TV 2017 through Bluetooth. If I leave the phone locked, I have to either restart this app or turn the Bluetooth on and off. The keyboard typing also lags between the phone and the Shield. It would be easier to set up a connection if we could manually input the IP address of the device we want to connect with this app.
The app works but the swipe pad is a pain to use in comparison to the d-pad and what's really missing is a gamepad mode that also utilizes the accelerometer for things like racing games. (We already know that there's a gamepad mode coming (thanks to an excellent APK teardown by AndroidPolice) so hurry up guys, please.)
I use with my old galaxy s5, iPhone 6 and galaxy note 3. Great as ONLY a remote for my nexus player since it does not turn on/off or control my volume ot options on my T.V.. I have peel remote installed as my Samsung T.V. remote. I would give it a higher rating but All 3 devices freeze when using the keyboard on the device to search on this app. I have to disable the app to restart which us time consuming.
Needs more buttons , Atleast Next, Previous and Stop. Move the home button out of the way to prevent exiting the current activity by accident. Adding a feature to be able to receive audio from Android TV to Android phone to simulate wireless headphones would be nice.
Missing some obvious features. For example, there's no way to switch the TV off or on, so it's immediately useless as a replacement for a normal remote. It really needs to replicate everything you'd find on a normal remote: channel buttons, input switching, more accurate ways to fast forward or rewind video, pop-up menu button... That sort of thing. This is so rudimentary that my old Sony app from 8 years ago is more feature-rich.
used to work. why it needs access to location and connections outside my network makes no sense and neither does y'all acting like you're about openness and security when all you've really done is change basic OS security functions to leverage force closing apps to blackmail users to give permissions. sad
