Seriously? You expect your customers to be this idiotic? Spend hours and hours and HOURS trying to get Netflix to cast correctly. We have had our Vizio TV for 3 months and have never been able to watch a complete program without a failure of the Vizio Stupid app. We have installed and set up 3 times and no luck. Know what Customer Service tells us to do? Uninstall, reinstall and set up. Will return this TV this week and demand a full refund. We saw an LG TV that looked good. Bet it didn't come with this appl.
I think this app pops up all the time and I constantly have to close notifications. I hate that i had to install this as a remote to access features that used to be standard for remotes. I downloaded spotify and without prompting it cast to my TV which I didn't want and led me to blasting my sound bar unknowingly as I was on my back porch. I find the interface to be pretty horrible and frustrating. I thought this might be fun but I would never buy a Smartcast TV again. Every Cast feature became pointless the second I hooked an old computer to my TV that could do much much more, so really couldn't tell you much accept that this garbage app is super frustrating and annoying. Can't be good for my phone battery for this to be running all the time in the background, but don't know how to stop it without deleting the app, and unfortunately still need it just so I can access a simple freaking tv feature like sound device management. Only reason I gave it 2 stars was a bonus one for not inadvertently causing a robot apocalypse... yet...
The app is structurally sound. It supplies you with every basic function needed to turn your phone into the most mobile remote possible. That being said it only supplies basic functions. I would love to see some notification bar customization for controls, and some customizable features for cast mode. Let me set a folder for cast screensaver pictures. Etc... solid remote app.
Can't control tv settings. Can't believe this display cannot be modified without the app. I hate that it constantly appears in my notifications for no reason. Settings should've been a requirement for the included remote. The connectivity is horrible and we run high streaming devices constantly. Great idea, poor execution. At least the picture is good.
This app is the main way to use my TV and unfortunately it can be a pain with not being able to cast other media streaming or casting capable to the TV. The sound of my TV needs to be changed and according to the manual I should be able to fix the sound and that was not the case when using this application. It could improve by opening up the casting to other applications that case to devices like as roku or firestick.
Works as advertised! Just took a bit of getting use to. When you setting up make sure to use the vol+ and vol- on the soundbar when you get to that part of the setup, do not use the remote!The casting only works for sound. 06/27/2017 Well it was working and now it stopped. Can't get this app to be consistent! And the fact that the remote has no LED just makes this worst! Horrible. Smh...
