Great app for controlling multiple kodi boxes. One slight problem though, once you cue multiple tv shows, movies, or albums/songs, you cannot rearrange them. So you need to be sure you put them into the cue in the order you want or you'll have to start over from the beginning. Just a small bug, but one that needs to be fixed. Will rewrite review once bug is fixed.

So I've been using Kore for quite some time. It's been fantastic for everything I've needed it for. The only complaint I have is recently on Android Pie. The audio/subtitle quick button is gone. Where did it go? I used to be able to select and download subtitles as well as adjust subtitle offsets very quickly within Kore. Thanks so much! Edit: Absolutely correct in your answer. After using it more i realized that it does show up eventually and it does seem to be tied to the connection quality.

It's not gone, but you might have an issue on your connection that prevents it from recognizing that a video is playing and showing the menu. Try pausing the video and check if the menu comes up. If you need help, please check the forums: https://forum.kodi.tv/forumdisplay.php?fid=129

Good app. 2 suggestions: 1: Make the remote control buttons scalable so they show bigger on bigger screens, and move them up -- there's a ton of unused screen real estate there and it would work better for most users if the controls were centralized instead of being at the bottom. 2: Most of us have VPNs. So it would make sense to make it possible to use this app alongside VPNs. I suspect this is possible as is, but not easily. Thanks for your efforts/ consideration.
