What's New in Version 4.0.0
Good but basic, and could use a better interface
I've used this remote app with my Pioneer VSX-1023K for a few years. It works well, but is a little basic and is definitely not a replacement for the IR remote. For instance, receiver settings are inaccessible using this app, and only certain listening modes are available. That's fine, though. The one thing that is truly annoying is that the volume control screen is a virtual volume dial, which is simply a horrible interface design for a touchscreen. Would easily rate this app at 4 stars if Pioneer replaced the virtual dial with a slider.
App used w/ Pioneer VSX-1022-K
Please note: Pioneer makes a ton of receivers. This app seems to be all about compatibility, not bells and whistles.
•Downloaded and it discovered my receiver immediately
•Can change receiver's volume
•Can change receiver's input
•Can select Pandora stations
•No advanced options: I have yet to find a way to change advanced options like turning a single speaker channel (Surround Left, Center, etc.) up/down
•Sadly, it doesn't allow act like a keyboard for Pandora login email, password etc. It just says this isn't allowed
SIDE NOTE: This app is currently at ~1.5 star average (April '16). I would expect it to have an average of at least 3 stars. It's free for mother brother's sake!
I inherited a VSX-53 that I spent the afternoon setting up with two pairs of 901s to see how it compares with some equipment that rhymes with Kronos. After using airdrop via blue tooth attachment, I was pleasantly surprised except when disconnecting the unit leaves up a Pioneer screen up on the TV. So I saw there was an "app" and hoped I could clear the hanging screen from the phone as well. Unfortunately, VSX-53 is not supported. Wish it was as I almost was impressed. Almost. So two stars.
