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.

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.

decent app, my experience is to use as remote control for AV receiver. HUGE (but simple for Sony to fix) FLAWS : 1) should be able to decide startup / default screen as preference. I primarily/only want to use this as a remote control, yet every time the app starts up it wants to start with my pictures and videos. 2) The app doesn't respect your wishes or privacy, there is no way to limit or direct the folders it searches for you photos and videos. Otherwise, the convenience of having the AV remote on your phone and or an old tablet/phone left around to supplement the remote that inevitably gets lost is quite nice. Very responsive. A few changes listed above would take this app to the next level.
