Ratings and Reviews
I’ve added one star. I’ve found that as soon as I add my Comcast box to the app, I get the white screen of death on my iPhone 7, so I won’t add my Comcast remote. Everything is fine until then. Current App version 2.7.3. Do not buy until a newer version, that works, is posted. Does this work with a different app? NO. This is far from ready for prime time. No way to back up settings, so when you have problems with your phone, everything is lost. Only 1 device connects at a time so if someone went to bed, you have to sneak in to find their phone and disconnect. Oh wait!! I don’t have their pass-code to turn off their Bluetooth!! No customizing the display button positions or any other. Not all my buttons with my Comcast remote are recognized. It’s only the most prolific remote around. The Nov 30th update also wiped everything out when it installed, so I had to re-program everything. Wonderful. Where can I download the previous update 2.7.1 when everything worked? This is perfect for my setup if they would put the app back to 2.7.1. The beauty of this device is that it runs on batteries and can be placed in front of all my devices without a power cable. FIX THE APP!!! Allow the settings to be backed up and transferred between iPhone/iPads etc!!! Allow more than one connection at a time!!!
Do NOT Waste Your Time With This!
I used to use this app when it was working, and loved it! Besides the ONE connection only downside, at least the buttons worked. Then it started degrading: response time was slowing, app started lagging and crashing, and excessive ads would pop up consistently. Very recently I tried it again and it wouldn’t launch 4 of 5 tries, and when it did it crashed almost instantaneously. So, I deleted and reinstalled the app, configured it, just for it to crash again. Reinstalled it again just for it to never install. Even more, there’s no dev support I’ve received after asking about it twice! There isn’t even a timeframe as far as updates come and go, so I cannot tell when (if at all) this app will be fixed! It’s very disappointing that something that worked so fluently now is a mess of bugs and crashes and errors. Don’t waste time with this app
Stuck in config loop
I had the Same issue that Sonicdeviant described. Configuration degenerated to a loop because no listings for set top boxes are shown after selecting country, and escaping resulted in white screen from which no further action is possible. Trying a different method is only possible by deleting the app and its data, then resetting the Pronto. Latest software version claims to fix white screen issue, but it didn’t fix mine.
I got a reply to a support request that gave me a link to log into the website, but logging in wasn’t successful and I wasn’t ever able to see my question in the support system. I got nothing but the automated support request response, even after ten days. It appears that although the Pronto remote I previously used this software to control is in working order, I can’t get any use out of the software required to control it.
