Ratings and Reviews
App should be free
Your app has come in handy. But I’d like my $1.00 back. It should be free. I’m newly paralyzed and drop and lose everything. I added this app so I wouldn’t have to inconvenience others to help me locate my remote immediately when I misplace it. I couldn’t give it 5 stars because the tutorial provided more confusion than clarity for me. Also there are things on the screen such as those four colored circles that seem to provide no purpose which could be used for more important remote features for instance volume controls. Descent app none the less.
Works well and has good Technical Support
I found that this app works very well. After I downloaded a new iOS, however, I was having a problem. I contacted the developer, and got an immediate email back suggesting a solution that worked like a charm.
The only suggestion I would have for improvement would be to add the ability to swipe and see what is coming up on a channel (as you can do with the Guide on the handheld remote). Still, this is a great app and deserves five stars.
You know at first I tried connecting to my Direct TV and it wasn’t working at all which made me frustrated so I decided to write an email to the creator of this app to see if he could help me fix it or refund me. Not only did he respond at a good time but also helped with through on how to connect this app to my tv correctly and I was finally able to know where I went wrong and now I’m connected to my tv, it works perfectly!
