Customer Reviews

Bought this to get Picasa to work with Sofa Control

I paid $20 for this app to get my remote to work with Picasa. After 2 hours of working with it, I couldn't even get it to send a single simulated keystroke to picasa. Remote Buddy had it working in 30 seconds.

Apple needs to have a refunds system, or else app developers will have no incentive to improve.

Buggy and not updated enough...

Software manufacturers release updated that break SofaControl functionality… No updates are available. Basically functional with whatever was on the market when it was released and that's it. I wasted $20.

Terrible Waste of Money

Absolutely terrible that they dont make it clear that it only works with original apple remote. Should have listened to the bad reviews instead of the one good one.
