Decent app for the Harmony series of WiFi remotes. Biggest gripe is the artificial limit of devices (8 or 15 depending on your model of hub). In a world with multiplying smart home devices, this severely hampers the products usefulness. For what it does though, it does pretty well. For me, using a touch screen will never feel intuitive for a TV remote, but I do appreciate the ability to use my phone's volume buttons to adjust the volume on the TV.
Good, but not great It would be very helpful if you could print out the commands associated with the buttons on the physical remote for any or all activities. Better would be printing them on a layout of the remote. Currently it is cumbersome to have to go button by button to find where, or if, a command is located. Also, when creating a new activity, it would be nice to be able to prioritize the devices that make up the activity. Currently the priority seems fixed as video input source, then TV, then AV receiver.
I'm not sure if it's an update to the app or my new Pixel phone, but I can no longer sync my settings with the hub or edit any activities. Turning things on/off is fine, so the app (my phone) is on the correct network, I suspect it has something to do with my phone being on the 5G network and the hub being 2.4G, which shouldn't be an issue but I've noticed it's made a difference in the past.
App Limited. Unable to play sequences. I define all sorts of sequences and program them against the buttons on the remote, but when using the app they are unavailable. Massive limitation means the app is basically worthless. will give it three stars as it does basic stuff pretty well.
Needs work Button layouts dont sync across devices. Keeps notification active, even when app disconnects from hub. Buttons do not work when this happens and you have to relaunch the app to fix. Would be better if the app did this in the background or closed the notification when the app disconnects. Stick with a physical harmony remote. You will save yourself a lot of frustration.
So-so when it works. If it works! This a terrible and buggy app. Spent 4 hrs trying to configure my harmony elite. It worked once then it bugged out now nothing works! Can't even turn on the TV right. The app is total garbage, now I have this expensive remote that can't even turn on the TV even my $150 phone can do that and so much more. What a waste of my life trying to get this to work!
