Paid and still got played I bought the ad free version thinking this app would function as described but, nope. ONLY WORKED THE FIRST TIME. After that, the app never connected to my laptop again. I'm uninstalling today and have instead purchased and have been using Unified Remote for about 11 days (which works flawlessly, every time).
Google Gesture Typing This is the only one of these remote keyboard apps I've found that supports the gesture-typing feature of Android software keyboards. Sadly, you don't get to see/change the input candidates, and if you use Swype it'll give you doubled words and other weird glitches, but stock Google keyboard will still work! Kind of!
It just works, from Android or iOS I was laughing in amazement in my kitchen as I could control my MacBook Pro from my Android phone! True, the android version is way less elaborate than the iPad version I have too - but just downloading an android app and controlling a Mac with it is just exhilarating and ridiculously easy! Thumbs up.
This is a useful app when there's no session timeout... This is very useful, but if you don't use this app after 5 minutes it stops working. It's like there's a sesion timeout, sleep mode. The thing is once it goes into sleep mode it doesn't wake back up so to speak. You have to force quit app and start up the again which is so annoying.
Good app Overall works great, from both my iPad and Android cell phone controlling an Android TV box, had some issues using it on the phone because kept disconnecting a few seconds after the initial connection, I understand it's still in beta so.. The only real problem is that unlike other keyboards, the mouse pointer doesn't fade away or disappears after a few seconds, so, for watching videos I have to move the mouse pointer to the edges of the screen to hide it. Hope the dev fixes this soon.
Gets worse and worse The current version has an ad banner on the trackpad. Which tricks me into clicking on it when I try to use it. Too annoying to use for presentations. Connection is not 100% consistent. Oftens drops connection. I use it for my mediapc only because I do not want to walk over and grab the wireless keyboard. If you are thinking of using this for professional use, be warned. It is unstable. Also it will not work properly at my work, even ghough my tablet has proper proxy settings and everuthing works (dropbox, remote desktop, splashtop, etc)
Controlling your LG Smart TV + keyboard with your phone has never been easier!
