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.
htc one m7 Doesn't recognise my tv box (Samsung) finds button to switch chanel but when you need to press yes nothing happens. so I'm stuck on configuration. And most important who the hell are you that you took out our original tv remote app?It was the way better!
Makes life easier! You might not have the remote near by , but your phone is always in your pocket. Plus , places where the have TV and it's Off , and let's just say there happens to be a game on . YOU GOT THE CONTROL !
Finally...a great remote app! I use the Peel remote app all the time for my Samsung TV, as well as my blu-ray player and AV receiver. The most useful features are the custom remote and the remote widget on the lock screen; now I don't have to unlock my phone to use it! Plus the setting to have the widget to show up based on the time of day is a plus.
Galaxy S6 edge This app has lots of cool features, and seems quite capable of anything, but it does have some glitches.. The power button will sometimes change channels, other times it turns it of then right back on.. Also right after I started using this app, my screen randomly started lighting up when I'm watching TV, and no it wasn't for notifications!
Does nearly everything I need it to do. Programming special buttons should be easier, but that's not a big deal. What is, is that it keeps waking up my GS5's screen when I have the app running. I'm sitting here right now watching it turn on for 5 seconds every 10 seconds. Fix that and I'll happily re-rate. The only reason I haven't switched to something else is I haven't found an app with similar functionality yet.
Getting better Much improved over earlier versions.
