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.
Was ok, now is useless. - fixed! Keyboard has cone back. All good again. When it replicated the buttons on the remote, it worked well, if a bit laggy. Now it has a swipe, gesture pad. Almost impossible to select menus or items. I find the box needs regular power off/on, often twice for some strange reasons. I just wish they'd left the keypad. Wish I could leave minus stars.
Crashes I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I have to uninstall the app and reinstall it again, just to open it. If I simply open the app from it's icon it just gives me the splash-screen and doesn't open. I'm unable to get to my home screen, so I reboot, uninstall, reinstall, and hope it opens. This is the same for my Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Acer Iconia Tablet, and an old Nexus S. :(
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.
App hangs and locks up all the time Stay with the old version. It's rock solid. I think development for this product has stopped so I don't foresee any fixes for this app. I don't know if it's allowed but I can email the old .apk to someone if they need it. Also, I use a fixed IP so the app always knows where my device is. (App only works once then quits issue).
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.
