Ratings and Reviews
Decent app but buggy
Hope this is just the beginning and that later updates will improve upon what has been accomplished so far.
Requests for later updates:
1) be compatible with more live video streams. (Sports!)
2) have desktop mode or maybe even Remote Desktop mode capable of identifying and playing certain videos not available on iOS like Flash videos. I know that iOS doesn't support flash but since the TV is directly receiving the stream I'm sure there can be way around.
What happened to my purchase??!!
Paid and downloaded the app on my iPhone 4 which worked fine then when I upgraded to iPhone 6 and downloaded again it totally unrecognized the fact I have already paid for this app and keeps throwing the wait at me. Not sure what's going and can't find a contact address to get this sorted out. I wish haven't paid for it.
Good but buggy
Works good but fast forward control is buggy, locks up the video and sometimes locks up the tv requiring it to be unplugged. Would be a 5 star app if those bugs were fixed.
