This application is a joy to use. I've started using my smartphone as a remote for the HTC ONE M7 and forward. Now that this application is available and my HTC 10 does not have an IR blaster, I feel at home again with this app. You're able to add devices to your account as well. I would like to see an update where you can lower and raise the volume in single digits from your smartphone oppose to increments of 10. Other than that it's awesome.
UPDATE: Thanks for bringing back the widget! The new update revamped the interface and it works great now! TURN OFF ECO MODE AND YOU'LL BE ABLE TO TURN ON THE TV WITH THE APP. You're supposed to use the Netflix app to cast Netflix, the YouTube to cast YouTube, etc. It's Amazon's fault for not building an app that supports cast. What you can do is download the Amazon Video app from the Amazon App Store, cast/mirror your phone screen to the TV by swiping down from the notification bar and clicking cast screen.
It is required to use with the TV I am returning and I and returning the TV because the pos is required to usually smart features work. It seem like it wants far too much information about me, Creating an account, my location, ect. To be fair I did not get all the way through the setup process mostly because the setup process require too much information on me to actually use the app so I haven't used it but I'm unwilling to use it based privacy concerns.
I now absolutely will no longer be a customer of vizio products. The app is garbage it freezes all the time and dont buy 4k vizio TV's. You'll end up spending much more money just to watch 4k and no longer able to watch "free" broadcast television shows or emergency weather report! Must use wifi just to use app or any paid programming. All a waist of money
Updated and can no longer stream from phone to tv.. says i can cast but all other apps stopped showing cast button so i can do nothing with my TV. I hate that i cant use a tv remote anymore and need the phone... worst decision ever made by vizio... my tv is useless and i will never buy from this company again
Terrible APP, terrible tv. The app wont see my tv now, via Bluetooth, or via wifi. So I now have a 50" brick that looks like a tv. How ridiculous is it to include a remote that does absolutely nothing? I have to have this app, and now even it doesn't work. Will never purchase a Vizio again
