Review from A Google User
Support? This app looks cool but offered a very limited list of tv providers - my cable service wasn't listed. And, until you choose a provider you cannot get into the app at all. It allows you to report if your provider is missing but then.......nothing, just an autoreply. It has been uninstalled and that is too bad.
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 !
Getting better Much improved over earlier versions.
Lost key functionality of old app As a remote it works (mostly). There is no way to bring up the on-screen channel guide, possibly to encourage you to use the app's (clunky) channel guide instead. The old HTC app could "learn" almost any button on your remote (to fix this sort of omission), but this version's "custom" option only lets you add the buttons you already have. The result is that I usually go back to my DirecTV remote instead.
Awful loaf of crap I already have a code for my TV as the buttons and codes provided do not work. But is there any way for me to put the code in manually myself? NO!!!
One of the better remotes It works great for me, it controls all if my electronics, TV, Roku, Blu-ray player, cable box. I did have a problem with the cable box but I emailed customer service and they responded the next day with a solution.
Handy as hell This app makes life a little bit better. I always lose my remotes and I got really tired of trying to look for them. I forgot my phone could even do this. It's great.
