Best IPhone Remote
After losing my DirectTV remote I tried just about every app in the App Store. This is the only one that worked consistently. The app on the DirectTV app only worked 10% of the time. Even though I found the remote control, I still use this app.
I love the voice control an having the iPhone 7 with this app just makes it even better with the correct speed of the phone an the receiver
Great remote with iPhone6
My kid lost the remote, I downloaded this app and it works awesome with my iPhone,, thank goodness. Worth 99 cents 😊
