Works first time only Like others have said, this works fine first time but when you reopen the app future times it won't work. Pretty major error if you ask me. Otherwise its a great idea especially as we lost our actual WD remote. Fix would this would be great.
Won't stay connected I was happy to find this app as my WD Live remote disappeared when I moved. However it constantly disconnects and I have to restart the app, often just while going thru the menus. Now suddenly it won't connect at all. I'm on a separate LAN with only the box and one device connecting to it, with no external connection. No reason for it not to see the box. Very frustrating.
Great on iPhone but doesn't detect device on android Used for years successfully on iPhone and iPad but on a Samsung Galaxy S5 it sometimes detects the WD Live box but once I leave the app and come back to use it again it says 'searching' but never finds a device. Meanwhile my iphone still works fine. Frustrating.
Needs a lot of work. If you have lost the original remote that came with the device, then this is an adequate alternative. But it's pretty shoddy and there's LESS control with online content with this app. On the plus side there is a volume control which the hardware remote lacks. UPDATE: A massive improvement on the old app.
Nexus 7 2012 does not work Install and all works well. Close the app and restart. Screen come up western digital remote and will not load. Can't access any other screen as it takes over and have to restart the tablet. Really poor but works on my Samsung s4 and works fairly well.
I have been trying to contact WD support for the past month without success about the app not working on Marshmallow. It was VERY GOOD until 6.0 then suddenly it doesn't work anymore. If you have marshmallow, don't bother downloading it, it doesn't work at all.
