Review from Jim Arnold
Galaxy Nexus/Note 10.1 Works well with DirecTV through WiFi on the Nexus. The Note 10.1 IR version of the app has issues controlling the sound bar audio component. It will turn it on/off but volume controls the TV instead of the assigned audio component. Support was no help resolving the issue when I emailed. Overall the app is good.
It's much improved! After 8 months this app has improved to the point that's its fully functional on my HTC one m8. You no longer have to press buttons 3 or 4 times. It simply works and I'm happy with that!
S6 edge Edit: I test every update, still the same problem, troubleshooting is not helping. Was. Working. Amazon on my Samsung S5, but now on my S6 I can't make it work with my SkyBox. It would work fine, I've tried all ir protocols and some almost works but when you press the button it send instructions twice at one tap which makes this app useless to me. e.g. I press "1" and my top box receive "11" please fix it. It happens for all "sky" protocols.
Won't import settings from my old phone. The import settings function doesn't work. And I can't get any response from Peel support after repeated requests.
Works like a charm Given I hadn't heard of thisbapp prior to picking my new HTC I have been very pleasantly surprised by this app. I have used several proprietary remote apps thatvnornally work via Wi-Fi to control certain devices I own but the Peel smart remote app is next level. Allowing me to control multiple devices across different brands with one single app is just what I have been wanting. I did have to spend a fair amount of time getting the app to learn my STB IR codes as it was a brand they had in the library.
Every Device Should Have Peel My device came with a different app (Powered by Peel, but junk) that was discontinued, I found Peel and never looked back. Works on all my A/V systems and switches to the right TV when I visit Mom's (Based on WiFi). Best app on the Market! Even streaming video for when there is nothing on TV. Keep up the great work!
So Dumb The little on screen floating widget for "quick launch" is ruining my phone. Whenever it is activated it turns off everything and I can't interact with my phone. I don't want to make an account just to fix this retarded app. It would be preferable if I could just remove it. I have never opened the app because I have the feeling it will make everything worst.
