Don't count on LG supporting this
So I'm leaving this as a one-star review because of LG's horrible support in the past. If they actually supported their remote app, I would bump this to 4 stars.
The UX issues are fixed, but the added "On Now" feature does not work. Otherwise the app would deserve 5 stars.
As for asking LG why On Now doesn't work, this is going to be their answer - and why I won't raise my rating -
"Thank you for clarifying. We do not support apps or Apple devices. If there is a problem with the app, you would need to contact the developer; for assistance with your iphone, you would need to contact Apple or your carrier."
"LG does not make apps but does collaborate on them."
Apple doesn't do anything but allow your app on the App Store. Apparently, you do zero with the app either, LG, including offer any kind of support. So not only has this experience left a bad taste in my mouth with your lack of support, but it makes me wish I would have bought the Sony or the Samesong instead.
Worked fine until the last update
I had the previous version on my phone and tablet and it worked just fine. This current one now insta-crashes on my tablet and, though it works on my phone, the screen captures are laughable 320x180 px images.
I really wish it was possible to roll back to the last edition. I get that they don't want to continue to support that old iOS 5 stuff (iPad1's can't be updated past that) but did they have to allow this update to be installed just so it can crash?
Still needs work
It's a great app... Use your phone as the tv remote! you can even take a screenshot of your tv and save it to your phone. it needs way to turn the tv on/off though.
