Purchased my receiver for the app.

I was researching receivers for our new media room. These days connectivity to mobile devices are an important part controlling the unit. Pioneer had the best application hands down so I purchased Pioneer. Our new Pioneer receiver is a very good piece of equipment and the app really works great.

The only thing that bothered me a bit is that our favorite radio stations aren't on the list under internet radio. None of them. Wish there was a way to add internet stations. Perhaps on the next update.

Works just enough to not complain


The app is great, works with my 1223 AV but my fear is 2014 will bring a new app from Pioneer and leave me in the past. There are some bugs that need to be fixed. For example Pandora, it doesn't refresh and need to switch inputs then go back to Pandora for the in app controls to work.

Pioneer needs to learn to update and fix their apps rather then start from scratch every new year. When you spend $1k on a receiver you expect it to have some shelf life and keep up with Denon and Marantz.

I've had this app for a while and not 1 single update. I mean are you kidding? Pioneer, welcome to iOS 8, it's time for an update. Support your products I'm sick of rebooting your app for Pandora.

I can no longer recommend your AV as an alternative to Sonos. Wake up Pioneer before it's too late.

Great app so far.

I have been using this app for a week now mostly to change inputs from the second HDMI out port on my VSX-1123k and it is great. I don't need to run an IR cable from downstairs to upstairs it does everything I need from the app. Being able to label inputs direct from the app is also great. Hopefully Pioneer will continue to update the app in 2014.
