Impressive. Second review dropped to ONE STAR!!!
I don't write many reviews. But this App deserves a review. I've only had it a couple of days and I am learning more and more. I got it for my Onkyo 809. It controls everything I need and more. Much more. It controls my IPod, I have it connected via front USB. Also controls my Sony Blu Ray. I have total and complete control over all three and I'm still learning. If I had a sony t.v. It would control that too. Well worth the $4.99 I give it 4 stars because I'm still new with this. If it controlled my 61" JVC t.v. And directv it would be perfect. I will update in a few weeks. John
This is a follow up to my original review. At first it was very impressive and worked flawlessly for about two weeks. Now it will not connect to my receiver. I also cannot make it connect manually. I've unplugged my receiver a couple of times as suggested, but this did not work. Final solution, uninstall and reinstall the App. This did not work. I am changing my rating to a single star. Hopefully they can get this issue corrected. John
Here's yet another follow up. Jun 17, 2014
In my previous reviews I had several issues with connectivity. Well, the App. Quit working altogether. I've deleted and uploaded a new App. Several times. Nothing!! I've set it to auto detect, nothing... I did it manually, still don't work!! Mr. Worne really needs to fix theses issues!! . Till then, don't waste your time or money
OK, but layout is badly designed
Ok, the good news is this functions better than Onkyo's iOS app.
That said, the design of this is pretty badly done since the developer is starting from a blank slate. All the buttons are small and close together, which means it's hard or impossible to safely hit what you intend to tap. The "5-way" I some good example - easy as pie to screw up. If you are running something like Pandora it's catastrophic- there's no way to go back.
Also, it would be really great if the layout design went back to square one. How about the "home" page with big, easy to hit buttons of the stuff I need 80% of the time? Use other tabs for the esoteric setting I rarely if ever need to see or touch. This could be such an awesome app with some common sense applied, why not do it?
The app organizes all of the receiver's functionality into a logical and easy-to-navigate UI. I recently upgraded my receiver to the TX-NR626, and while I'm very happy with the receiver's features and functionality, the UI can be frustrating to navigate. oRemote immediately found my receiver on my (wired) network, and allowed me to instantly tailor EQ settings and access Zone 2 without having to walk through multiple menus and button combinations.
