Customer Reviews

Previous version please

The gesture sensitive box made much more sense to me. Why have 5 individual buttons when you have a box that can do it all? Please make it so we can switch between the two remotes or something because this defeats the purpose of a remote on your phone. I feel like I'm using a difficult version of the regular remote because I can't feel the buttons. Now instead of swiping or tapping a large box that knows what I want it to do, I have to look at my phone and make sure my thumb is still where I want it to be.

Great update, great app.

Happy to have keyboard back. Still love the swipe nav. Really liked the previous incarnation, but this unexpected update is a delight. Takes into account the differences between an iPhone and a tactile button remote with the new swipe navigation feature. Also very easy to find the power button – upper left-hand corner.

Sadly not happy

I have loved this remote through its various incarnations. But, sadly, this last one ... My issue is connectivity. After the apps updated they no longer see my living room wd live player... But they see the other two in the house. What is up with that? I have browsed, and googled, but not found an answer. I do see others complaining of the same issue ... Please tell us what went wrong!
