I've been using this app for quite sometime on a smartphone and a tablet. At the begining I have always praised it, even with a few quirks here and there in earlier version, it was worth the purchase with all the great features like the ever-so-important backup and recover feature that has saved me so many times. It satisfies this control freak. I'm able to control a range of my gadgets like TV, AppleTV, even my standing oscillating fan, all within a few taps from where ever I am in my smartphone or tablet! Over time, updates have always brought a nice surprise like a tuned feature or a new feature. The latest major update is not only a spit shine polish but it also brings some very nice improvements and new features that make using the app a new and enjoyable experience. The developers have done an excellent job over the life of this app and I am really impressed with the quality and professional feel it has developed into. Keep up the great work Color Tiger!
This is a very good and comprehensive app and well worth the money. There is a problem with the remote for Philips Hue Lightstrip Plus one which I have reported to the developers. There is quite a lot I don't fully understand. For example if the developers updates or corrects one of the supported remotes that I use, would it get automatically updated or would I have to delete and reload? And if I do have to do that, how would I know? Also, if a wifi version of an ir remote becomes available, how would I know? It would be helpful if there was a newsletter or user forum.
Network commands have stopped working on all of my devices!!!! ??? Wigets need lots of work. But best remote available by far. It can do anything. I wish it had Smartthings integration. Alexa integration has never worked. Home components are switching to Wi-Fi http get commands so I wish I could use this app on devices that don't have a IR blaster. Plus Samsung has killed the IR blaster feature on their newer devices so it's a deal breaker for any new device.
Very easy to set up multiple remotes and nice to be able to customize buttons with various colors, text and symbols. Buttons can also easily be rearranged. It works with many manufacturers and I was easily able to set up one universal remote in the app that includes my most used buttons on my tv, soundbar, and blu-ray player.
The best part about this app is the wide variety of remotes for different appliances. I could be using this remote for my sony TV then quickly switch over to another remote to control my Dyson bladeless fan. The only thing negative that I have is the notification for quickly controlling an appliance is enabled by default. Otherwise it's a great app and I enjoy using it.
All devices I have, some old some new, can be controlled by this app, including my fire tv. I've tried others and have had issues with some functions. All working great with this app. Update: I gave this app 5 stars because until now it was a 5 star app. I got a new phone and downloaded this app again with my Google account and now it work work. It says it can't find my anymote. I'm not sure what that means. I just want to use the app again please help.
New Location permission: we don't need nor care about your location, but Google requires it for all apps that want to use Bluetooth 4.0 LE. For any concerns, please email Google.
