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.
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.
This app is terrible I absolutely hate this app. I have to Uninstall it and reinstall it every time I want to switch from one of my devices to the other. Most of the time it doesn't work and I have to reboot every single time I want to do something on it. I've heard this app sucks with android but this is ridiculous. If the kids hadn't broken our remote I would never use this app again. Doesn't even deserve a star.
