Regular remote is better I installed this app so that i could use the keyboard on my phone for searches in webOS e.g. the web browser, youtube and even navigating the apps and content; but the keyboard doesn't seem to work for anything. The touchpad is quite poor at navigating. Arrows on the TV remote work better. Going to uninstall. Only good thing I can say is that the syncing between the app and tv went smoothly. I recommend that the developers fix the keyboard and add navigation arrows and even voice control.
Hi, this is a cool app but doesn't detect a TV if in a different subnet. Can you please add a manual setting of the TV IP address for such cases? My TV is wired to my router, but the WiFi of the same router is in a different subnet. I can ping the TV from my phone, but broadcasts don't work. A manual IP address setting in your app would make it work. Other similar apps have a manual IP setting, but you only have a Mac address setting. No response to my simple request. Also this app SHOULD NOT NEED STORAGE PERMISSION. Please fix these issues and I will give full stars.
Overall, I have to give this app 5 stars since I am comparing it to every other TV remote I have tried. I have a new big screen LG SUHD 4K TV with Web OS 3.0, and a Galaxy 8+ phone. Once I got it set up, this app worked amazingly well. There were some problems, like having to turn on Wi-Fi on my TV to get the remote to work, even though it was already connected via ethernet. Also, I had to turn the sensitivity of the gyroscopic pointer and the touchpad way down to control them (the more I use them the easier it gets). Almost all of the app's buttons work as expected, but getting the settings right and getting use to the controls is the trick. Best of all, I can see this app in the dark, which is great when watching TV shows or movies. Please keep working on this app, and a detailed instruction manual would help.
If the developer add "switch on" feature when the TV is in standby position, I will surely give 5 star. While some remote control can turn on the TV when it is in standby mode, why did this remote failed to do so. When the power button is pressed in this remote the TV is turned off to standby mode, cutting off the wifi connection. If the tv can wake up without wifi, it will be great.
Works quite well Most of the features work fine, certainly gave been able to navigate the usual TV option just fine, settings, input, turn it off etc. I can't get the turn on feature to work however and discovered the reason why. When my TV goes on standby it immediately disconnects from the WiFi and there doesn't seem to be any reason for it. There's no power saving setting that would affect the WiFi so why does it just instantly cut out?
Very handy if, like me, you have children who like to leave the TV on when they leave the room to do something else. This app lets me turn it off myself without interrupting what I'm doing. One star off because it crashes on Oreo every time you send the power off command.
