It Was Better Before Somewhere in the last 3 to 6 updates it became a pain in the neck. When everything is cleared in the notification screen, it goes also. You then have to open the App and reactivate the notifications so the App can be used. Before the offending update it was always there ready for use. If not for this faulty it would easily get 4 stars and a possible thumbs up.
My Only Complaint... Is that just like most universal controllers, there are no options for special menus key in/on the controller. I have a 40" insignia roku smart tv. The special menus key which I speak of would look like a star. Like the Walmart star (*) symbol. Even after entering my smart hdtv's model number (which I was sure would make the star * key appear) no special menus key appeared. Other than that, this app appears to be quite solid.
Used to be great I used to love Peel remote and use it on all of the TV'S in my house. Now, I can't use it at all without being taken to some click bait ad. And videos even? Why would I watch an ad before using my remote. It's faster to search through the couch and find the remote myself. If the ads were a banner across the bottom, I'd be fine with that. Now, the ad pops up where the volume and chanel buttons are right as you go to click on them. Ridiculous.
Great app, but too many full screen ads. I really liked this a lot the first six months I used it. Very feature rich remote. Now the past several updates have added excessive full screen video ads. I understand a few ads but these are persistent and repetitive and appear everytime I do anything. Also, too many push notifications. Would have given 5 stars otherwise.
Very very useful Delivers on its word and makes itself very useful. Ads are annoying, but you gotta make some money somehow right? Good app till I get batteries for my remote. I might not even need the remote now.
Worst change ever. Its an advertiser agency. I wasn't going to rate this app because it was perfect the way it was. Now it's like an ad factory. I will most likely search for a new remote app. This was one of the reason I bought samsung for this infrared thing. Now I can redirect to other brands as this one doesn't have the extra edge.
