Customer Reviews

Buyer beware

I bought this application to control a Sony Bluetooth remote on my computer. Apparently there are 2 versions of this application, the ‘Express’ and the ‘Remote Buddy’. The express did not support the bluetooth remote I wanted, nor does it support bluetooth remotes and the ‘normal’ version does. Very dissapointing. Make sure to verif what you’re trying to do is supported.
