Best I've found! I have a Galaxy S6 and this was the 4th remote I tried and this was the only one that has a button for the "smart" features. I wanted to watch Netflix and this remote worked great BUT it would be a whole lot better if there was a keyboard. The cursor on the screen is cool but somewhat difficult to use. I can't figure out if I can use this as a universal remote for my cable to, but at least I get to watch Netflix!
Just does not work now It worked like a charm few months back. I haven't used it for a while until recently. Guess what? Now it does not detect my smart tv at all although it is connected to the same wifi network. May be something is wrong with the updated version, if there was any.
App wants a 6-digit code from TV. TV used to pop a little window with the code in it, but now the little window no longer has a code - it's just a blank white rectangle where the code should be, and the old code it used to display there. doesn't work any longer. Tried this on 3 or 4 Androids ranging from Jelly Bean to Marshmallow, with identical result. Things like this should just work - and stay working.
Connection issues Sometimes connects but mostly doesn't, iphone always connects. Says check power of TV yet the pairing box always appears on the TV screen! TV 47LM649T-ZA. Working again. Not connecting again, yawn! Fed up of this, failing to connect again even though pairing box appears on TV. Useless! Another update stops it working. Deja Vu Screen capture back, would be even better if you could capture short video clips.
Great when it works. . . Worked fine with my xperia z and iphone 5, but now I have an xperia z3, and it will not connect at all, even though I'm using the Internet on the TV. Getting a tad impatient as my little girl decided to throw my smart remote in the dogs water bowl. Please sort this issue. Will rate 5 stars when it is resolved
My major problem is the capture screen and share feature. I can capture an image of whatever is currently on my TV. I used to hit the share button and receive a list of apps that I could share through (FB, Messenger, Gmail, Messages, etc...). Now, every time I try to share it defaults to FB Messenger with no prompting. I tried finding the app in the settings to change it but no dice. Otherwise it works great for what it is.
