Great when it works
Got this to use with Plex Home Theater but it is still too buggy to use. This is supposed to be one of those apps that "simply just works" without any need to mess with settings. Of course those are the hardest apps to make and usually fail miserably. Unfortunately that's the case here. There are no options to manually control when it operates as a remote vs a keyboard/trackpad so when it doesn't automatically recognize that you're watching a movie, it's useless. The only way to get it to recognize that its a movie is to restart the app you are watching the movie from. Getting up to close out of Plex and then turn it back on--sometimes multiple times--is not my idea of convenient. Great idea but needs work and a manual override option.
Great App :)
I love the simplicity of this app. It just works without much setup. There are only two things I don't particularly like about it. The first is that for initial connections you have to leave the install app open on your computer, which I find not quite intuitive. The second thing is that some remotes have play pause buttons that are a little too close to the trackpad section. Both of these are rather minor and I feel they aren't serious enough to subtract a star for. Overall the app is great and completely intuitive. (I use it on 75/75 FiOS WiFi so your mileage may vary)
The Apptui service really is 100% free and works excellently. Unfortunately, the EULA states that users cannot transmit any "obscene" content through the application. The EULA is extremely vague and could technically mean that streaming a TV show with objectionable content is a violation.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
