Good but not Great I Like this version vs the voice one. Easy to use, definitely better than a normal remote (freezes the box often, when searching, and takes forever to scroll.) But with this app, I can find something quick. Only issue is the "free filter". I set it to free and it shows me movies and shows, I'm not subscribed to. I then make this face (-.-), when it doesn't play. If the filters worked properly I'd give this a 5*.
Great! Absolutely love this app... on Thanksgiving my sister misplaced the remote and my family wanted to watch football. Used this amazing app on my Galaxy S6 Edge+ (previously on S3, LG Slider, and Motorola Que) and it worked great! Was even able to sort sports and pull up all the football games. If your having issues with the app maybe you should clear your cache or delete apps that are taking up so much space.
Needs improvement It works ok sometimes. The guide is definitely helpful to me and easier to navigate than the one on the tv. The issues are it doesnt always tell you what chanel the on demand items are, and at least for me, it never works to change to the movies for on demand. When you click on a movie sometimes it doesn't load it up and when it does, it doesnt have the option to watch the movie like it does with tv shows. I really wish they would come out with an update.
Problems Everyday There are some great things about my xfinity service. The on Demand options are great, picture quality is awesome and the customer service is top notch . But none of this really matters when your television experience is constantly interrupted or your Internet is as slow as dial up and also of course this app, never really gives you the T.V. options that using the regular remote does.
Yeah just 1 1 star because it's not a true remote in anyway! I can't turn on the x1 with it or really search on demand by episodes! It works great as is OK you got that but this is supposed to be a universal remote or a wireless alternative to the physical x1 remote! Until these issue are fixed, no 5 star rating
No longer controls all boxes Not sure if it was the recent updates, or when I switched to an x1 box in the living room... but I lost the ability to control my TVs that just have small basic boxes. Was great for changing the channel after DH fell asleep on top of the remote. Now not so much!
