Crashes, but works better than the VeryStoned remotes
It works fine when first started. Shut it down, or when the iPad/iPhone goes to sleep, it freezes, then crashes. You have to wait until it does all the handshaking before regaining control.
Having said that, at least the app controls the STB reliably. The physical remotes usually required multiple -- up to 20 -- button pushes before the STB responds. VeryStoned insisted both our remotes failed simultaneously and sent a new one, which, of course, didn't work either. They then sent a rebuilt, replacement STB, that has the same problem. I suspect both STBs have bad IR sensors, as nothing in the operating environment has changed in several years.
Every call to VeryStoned is interminable, with long holds, endless auto-voice queries, and technicians whose understanding of the system is limited to "please check to see if the power is on," despite the displays being lit and Fox News locked on the screen.
The app itself would rate four stars, but it's part of an integrated system that doesn't work. So, two is the best I can do and that's being charitable.
When it works it's ok at best
It seems to only work when it wants. I'll get an error that says " unable to process request try again later" for days. Then it'll decide to work, and when it is working and the kids are watching tv while driving it stops about every 5 minutes. About half the time it restarts on its own, but the rest we gotta shut it down. I'm using an iPhone 6 which never has issues with anything else. Since i can live with it I opened an online ticket over 2 weeks ago and haven't got a response yet. I've even updated the ticket saying I'd like to see if they Everette even look at it ? Still nothing. For a company like Verizon I'd expect a better app
Having to back out of a show to watch the next show in a series is unintuitive. If I'm watching episode 4 and 5 is next, then make it easy. I'm watching a series today that says it expires 7 days from now, but I am receiving a message that episode 3 has expired, but 1-2, 4-12 are working as intended. Having to actually record a show on a premium network instead of watch the title on demand is also pretty old fashioned thinking. I pay for the premium channels, provide ALL of the services with one fee, instead of nickel and dimming me to death when I want to watch shows on my tablet or phone
