Shared App Now Works
UPDATE: I wrote to the developer of this app. They were quick to respond and fix the family share downloading. I have up the star rating to 5 stars. Best app for Direct TV I've used. I use it much more than the regular DTV remote.
I really like this Direct TV remote. I don't have to have my phone in the exact right place for it to work like with the Direct TV remote. After initial setup, the app "just worked" like it's suppose to. Easy setup also. What makes this app 3 stars is the other person on my shared account can not download the app. They can see and download all other apps I have purchased and I can do the same with theirs. Just not this app. I will give 5 stars if/when the app is downloadable for others on shared accounts.
This is an amazing app!
This is a great app! It's just as easy if not easier to use than real remote. I never have to worry about connection issues because it connects to Wi-Fi so anything blocking it won't interrupt the signal! I can also use multiple remotes, in multiple houses, On multiple receivers! All I do is select which room and use the remote! It tells me what's playing, bottom line it rocks! I mean, it instructions and everything! Plus I can use it at night because I can see my phone screen! These are all the reasons I'm writing this five star⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!
It just works
Come on people, read the description first. It plainly says that it's IP control. No need to give a low rating because you failed to read. That being said, it works great on my Genie system. Two things - first it would be nice if this were full screen because it lacks the tactile feedback of a real remote. When it scrolls you can lose your finger position. Second for the same reason as above, some sort of button feedback would be nice, either click or short buzz.
