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.
Poor I'm only saying poor as the system could not find our stb which we had to use as a emergency as sky went down again for the 11th time ( never heard of ) and as the dog or one of the kids had eaten the remote this left us TV less.
Fix the widget. I only have 8 apps out of the 16 you can fit on a home screen. Your widget takes up 8 but it says my home screen is full when trying to place it. Widget can't be used. Huge fail in widget design. Must be some armatures working there.
Way too many notifications Every day I get notifications about basketball games or streaming music from this app. And there is no way to turn them off. Get a different remote app.
Gorgeous I've always used Peel as most Samsung phones I've owned have either come with it or prompted me to download it and the latest change to the black UI is gorgeous. Controls are simple, and adding/editing remote is a breeze. The full screen ads used to annoy me but now that that's remedied the app is near flawless.
Used to be great, now just okay. The latest version has a dark UI which would be fine if you could switch between themes but it doesn't appear that there's a way to do so. Also, I would pay money to remove the small button ads but I have no way of being able to do that which forces me to see ads I'm not interested in.
Can't turn off notifications I have no interest in seeing the newest music video and it's always telling me to check the videos out. Can't turn it off and i uninstalled the app.
