Great app and customer service
The app works great with the Pronto device. Nearly instantaneous when you press a button. Their customer service is top notch as well. Helped me with the few issues I had. Highly recommended
Doesn't connect to Vizio
We have a Vizio TV and the Peel app works great on my husband's Samsung Galaxy S6 but it doesn't work on my iPhone 6. It doesn't detect my TV or surround sound even thought they are connected to our network. Also it does give the option to connect manually by inputting device IP but our TV manufacturer is my supported. I only have the options or selecting a Samsun or Sony TV before manually typing my TV's IP.
The app worked awesome until this last update. Each time I press the remote on the top right of the screen the app crashes. And to top it off, every time I try to "report a bug" the screen switches back to the menu. Therefore I can't even send a bug report. Very frustrating considering the app worked great before this last update.
