Honestly, it has it good and bad traits Its easy to set up and easy to browse. I really like that i can use my smart phone as my keyboard now instead of pushing 3,000 buttons on my remote just to spell a title of a movie or search, bad is that it doesnt have ability to turn off and on..BUT most likely for those who lost their remote and really need this ability there is a universal smart remote app to power on and off ur tv so just put the apps next to eachother so u dont have to get up and down to turn everything off and on.
It won't friggin connect Tried several times to connect my phone (Samsung galaxy s3). Manual settings won't work either. If you lose your remote for this player, you are screwed, because this POS app will not work. Why can't you use Bluetooth settings to connect? The actual remote is Bluetooth. It would make more sense.
Works great!! I'm smart enough to know that my phone WiFi and the player have to be the same network, and I also lost my remote but by my sheer genius I realized that if I unplug my box and plug it back in than the power button issue is solved and I can use my great new phone app just fine. ... unless I feel like I'm better than everyone and having to get up and unplug/plug things in is just to mush hassle. .... get over it losers, this app is the poo.
Can't tell if it works In order to use this app, your box and phone have to be on the same Wi-Fi network. If you don't use a wireless network, you're pretty much screwed. I brought the box with me on vacation so I wouldn't be stuck with hotel cable, but I forgot the remote at home. I need the remote to connect to the hotel's Wi-Fi, but I need the Wi-Fi to connect the remote. I tried connecting with my mobile hotspot, but it says the ip is invalid. Oh well. I'll try again when I get home and re-rate if I can get it to work.
NEO TV Remote APP LOVE Took seconds to get up and running. Could not find the device on my WIFI network but following the steps to get to the IP Address worked perfectly. The keyboard will definitely help. I love my NEOTV but the remote was not the best, this resolves beautifully.
So convenient!! It's an instant fix! Connected within seconds. Response as soon as I push the buttons. Puppy chewed up original remote. I thought I'd have to wait days for a new one. Then I accidentally came across the android app while I was looking to order a new remote. I couldn't believe it!
