Great features when conected! I really like this remote controller, however, the app will open but the remote feature sometimes won't or will take long, and that defeats the purpose, I still end up finding my physical remote. Plus I agree with some other reviewers, why does it have a media folder that doesn't even play on your TV?? I don't like that.

This app is (supposedly) no longer supported by Sony. But it got transferred to my third Xperia phone. Originally (2020), it would turn on/off & control my XBR-49X800H. But maybe 6-8 months later, it would only flash the set's LED when any button was pressed (not sure, however, if that was due to upgrades to the app or the telly). But yet, after the March, 2022 update, the app started workin' again. So, I'll keep usin' it for as long as it works (although Google Home also has a remote feature).

I wanted a TV remote app and this app seems to work well with my Sony smart tv. However, there are a couple of wonky issues. First, it opens to a library of the videos on my phone. Why doesn't it open directly to the remote? This needs to be fixed. Also, all phones and tablets already have a video player. Why would anyone want to use your app to play their videos? Especially when your app plays them on my phone and not on the TV! I cannot give you a better rating until these issues are corrected.
