I would give this a higher rating as I have used it for a year. But this last month it started downloading ads in the background while the app is shut off and closed out while I am at work. It used 853mb of data and I had only used the app 13 times that month as I'm on midnight shift. I did a factory reset on my phone incase of any other issues. After reinstalling it used 35mb in one day without even opening the app to use it so I deleted it. Whatever they are doing since the last update it is eating my data and I'm not paying overage charges for their ads.
Who thought a full lock screen overlay would be a good idea!! Seriously!? Its took me ages to figure out it was peel and no matter how many times i have muted it and unticked the lockscreen widgets its still coming back! I use this app every single day but i will be deleting it. I can't believe you guys thought people would love this feature? What were you thinking!?!
This app sucks large balls now. They have immorally added a full page lock screen on top of the system lock screen. Took hours to figure out what was causing this. This app is now labeled as Malware or Adware. Deleting and removing it permanently after this review. It was ok when originally downloaded 2 or 3 years ago... but no longer due to malicious adware. Shame.
This app is terrible now, the update introduced more ads and some weird lock screen overlay also a random button. My battery life is now terrible. GTFO of here with this ads stuff. I'm going to have to root my phone now. HTC is really bad at making decisions, who would they allow you guys to do this. You guys also don't even respond to the bad comments, this is a trash company.
So much potential, but so frustrating. Use this regularly at work and would gladly pay 12 dollars a year for the features. But the ads and their settings are obnoxious and intrusive, ESPECIALLY for a PAID subscription. Paid and STILL a 30 day mute? Also, once downloaded, the guide should be stored locally and load immediately.
The app has gone from ok and usable to an unwanted and an annoying app. The adds where understandable at first with two or three in the app. But the increased amount of them and the full screen pop ups are unecessary. The new lockscreen overlay is completely uneeded and unwanted. That isn't the purpose of a remote control app!!! I have uninstalled and replaced the app and will not get it again until I see the reviews stop complaining about the same reasons I have uninstalled the app.
