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.
Needs little more work Once you have found a compatible remote it is brilliant. I have a jvc but there wasn't a compatible jvc. After going through several different brands in found one I could use it did same for kids tv's. Now I have them all working in can go from room to room changing channels without having to look all over for remotes in toy boxes
ADS. App. The App. Is purely intrusive ADS. Fullscreen ADS., ADS in the remote controls, ADS on the TV Guide. Oh, and annoying notifications too! On Samsung Galaxy you can't remove it, also they don't offer a small fee to remove them. So try to avoid it, disable it or remove it by rooting your phone. Also the TV guide says a movie or serie is happening now and when I switch to that channel there's something completely different. Any new update has more ways to implement new ADS
Don't want it! I find it unbelievable that I have an application I cannot remove from my very expensive phone I paid my hard earned cash to buy. I don't own a TV, I don't want this app or for it to show up and send me notifications. I pay and get this unrequested crap? No more!
Dreadful Not only did I never ask for this app on my phone (yeah thanks for that one HTC), but you somehow think it's acceptable to constantly notify me about crap I have no interest in, and then if I choose to switch off your notifications on MY PHONE, you insist on switching them back on after a month! Oh, and the actual remote part of the app is crap as well. Absolutely dreadful.
Awesome service They have so many remotes with so many options. I've never not found a tv they couldn't do. If your remote isn't working there's a place to fix it right in the app. It will try other codes or something until it works. Also, this week I had a glitch in the widget so I emailed them and a couple days later they already had an update to fix it! I'm sure they already knew about the glitch, but that's still really awesome service!
Widget broken/fixed Clicking any button on the widget brings app to foreground. Have to click back 3x to exit... Latest update fixed it again. Thanks!
