It's been a long time coming


I'm a long time user on my 3rd box. I don't use it out of country anymore since retiring. As with so many other apps we went from zero ads to adinfinitum. Still a great product. For me it's being able to follow a news story or a NASCAR race no matter where I am. Even if it is just in the kitchen. It is a shame to pay big bucks to Fios to watch commercials and then to pay again when you buy the latest iteration of the box just to be confronted by more ads within the app and within the program I'm watching. I get the feeling that their next major grab for ad dollars may be their last.

Works reasonably well


Works reasonably well for me and my slingbox 350.

The only three issues I have with the app are:

1. It doesn't sync your favorites across your slingbox account. So if you use this app on an iPhone but also sometimes use an iPad, another iPhone, or the web interface, you must re-add favorites onto each device.

2. I don't have my slingbox plugged into an HD cable box, and there seems to be no way to rid the app of the HD channels. As a result, the main screen of the app with the showcase of whatever shows are now playing is relatively useless to me, because when I click one of the shows, the app takes me to the HD channel number which doesn't work, since like I said, I am not using an HD cable box.

3. When adjusting the time filter on the channel guide, it brings you back to the top of the channel list.

Otherwise this app works well and is reliable. I don't experience any lag or sound issues either, although I think that partially depends on which slingbox you have. My old solo had issues with audio quality while my 350 doesn't.

Latest Update


Every since I did this update this app continues to crash and I have to start all over.
It would be nice if some of the buttons were relocated within this app like that remote control at the bottom of the page would be more beneficial at the top. Also it is so stupid that you should have to select those arrows in order to change the direction of the picture and it's very complicated at times to do so and I don't understand why.
App just seems slow and sluggish lately.
I hope there is another update to fix these issues.
