This is the worst app I've ever used. It will work one moment then stop working altogether. Other times it will allow you to turn other items on and off, but won't sync to control them. When it run a diagnosis, it doesn't find any issues. Though it still won't let you use it on other Samsung products. Uninstalling and going to a third party. Would not recommend.

The last update is horrible! It also took we way too long to figure out how to turn the volume up on the TV, using this app. I now have to use the volume buttons on the side of my phone, which is just weird. I have about 50% chance of the app even turning my TV on if I need to use the app. I use app when ever my kids loose the remote. But know I'm just temped to go buy back up remotes from Amazon and just mount one on the end table, bc this app is more trouble than it's worth.

Not sure about this update. I really liked how it looked before. The interface was easier to use too, especially for adjusting routines, which I need to do weekly because of the nature of my job. Plus, it's just a bit buggy in general- sometimes I press the button to turn my lights on via my task bar and it just buffers for 30 seconds and I have to either close everything to retry or fully open the app and somehow it instantly connects.
