Peel Smart Remote: TV guide & Universal Remote app reviews

  • Didn't work 1/5

    By EOG24
    For my Vizio 3D TV
  • Best Option I've Found 5/5

    By BabyCheeses
    Way better than the Logitech remote I was using and keeps getting better.
  • Dishonest 2/5

    By Cubey28k
    Leaving this review because they wasted my time. Advertised as a universal remote, you need something called a Pronto. Nice try and no thanks.
  • Remote 4/5

    By Garlee57
    Here is my input about this peel I had it on my Samsung s7... It worked to notch you could not have asked for such a perfect remote for such a phone... So totally awesome on that phone... But for my iPhone 7 plus 128 GB I HAVE PURE FAILURE WITH THIS APP... MAJORLY FRUSTRATING WILL NOT WORK WITH THIS IPHONE 7 plus 128 GB... Very disappointed
  • Amazing. I love it!!! 5/5

    By The gamer nick here
    A great app for watching all my favorite shows and movies
  • Disappointed 1/5

    By j. speed
    Why doesn't this app work on iPhones? 😱😟
  • Be more upfront 1/5

    By Bphilpott84
    Might issue with the app is the lack of upfront info about the app. The iPhone does not have an IR blaster built in, so you must purchase an aftermarket device to do it for the IPhone. I had to look it up myself instead of the app letting me know it's required, it almost leads it off as an option instead of stressing it's requirement.
  • Why 1/5

    By SamieJay
    Why do I have to buy something in order for this app to work?
  • Disappointment 1/5

    By Leggowrdfreak
    Does not work with iPhone unless you have a separate device called Pronto!
  • Works really well 5/5

    By fdwx09d
    Super easy to use
  • Why bother 1/5

    By MisMist
    I don't understand why you would put an app in the App Store if the phone cannot use it. I had this on my galaxy phone and it worked great. Here....... nothing. Apparently that is not the developers fault it's Apple's fault because they don't have any IR in their devices. So my question is is why would Apple even put it in their store if their device cannot use it?
  • TRASH!!!! 1/5

    By Jakestempy
    Does not work at all
  • Disappointed in this app 1/5

    By Old lady_pushing carts
    This app did not work at all for the iPhone 6
  • Wack on iPhone 2/5

    By BlackHippy1220

  • Messed up my tv 1/5

    By Life of a zombie b$&@h
    I downloaded it and it messed up my TV it won't connect to wifi and other things way to go I hate this app
  • Awful 1/5

    By Jimboo5555
    Wasted my time. Horrible app
  • Samsung vs iPhone 5/5

    By Sparkool
    Works excellent with Samsung; worthless with iPhone. It's not the app it's the high and mighty cellphone giant Apple!

    By Aby Recarte
  • Battery lasts for months, great device 5/5

    By Ruusa1
    Not sure why this doesn't have 5 star average. Battery lasts forever, which is amazing given its Bluetooth is always on, it easily controls my media devices including Directv box. Makes it easy to find programming I want and discover new channels.
  • Cheap 1/5

    By Skills2123
    Poor support. They don't even respond to questions or problems with the app. Bluetooth does not pair correctly and no one on their end replies to repeated messages for help. Hey developers, check your overwhelmingly negative reviews "Pronto."
  • Useless. 1/5

    By Mohammad H.
    Apparently you need a module in order to connect your TV... Don't waste your time downloading this app.
  • Samsung version is better 1/5

    By Madellyne loves music
    I have the app on my Samsung tablet and it works flawlessly. When I downloaded it on my iPhone phone I expected it to be the same. But it wouldn't connect because it kept asking for the ip sooooooo apple should fix this
  • Lost of time 1/5

  • What the heck happened? 1/5

    By User417
    This worked so well when I first purchased it a year ago and now it doesn't work at all! Apple user.
  • Crap 5/5

    By Crappy boy122
    Delete it's the best app ever
  • Use to love it 1/5

    By Melindavega
    I had this app on my Samsung Galaxy S5. It worked perfectly. I switched to iPhone 7. Now it doesn't do anything. Says connect to Bluetooth, then to wifi. Then says it can't connect to device referring to the wifi.. wth? I use to love it. Pointless to have it now if it doesn't work!
  • Samsung Winning 3/5

    By jaybabyo8
    Use to absolutely love this app until I got an iPhone and wasn't aware of the whole IR thing .. If you have iPhone don't waste your time
  • Works really good 4/5

    By Rick_6857463524
    I have the peel app and the associated IR device. Because the iPhone doesn't transmit IR the Peel Pronto IR transmitter is required. The iPhone connects to the Pronto IR device by Bluetooth and the Pronto connects to the TV (or in my case the cable box) via IR. Works really good and is very convenient. He are my only cons: - can only be connected to one iPhone at a time - sometimes the cable box does not tune to the correct channel the first time. Doesn't happen often and is usually corrected on the second try.
  • Lacks in comparison to Samsung phone 1/5

    By Malyreb
    I loved this app on my Samsung galaxy phone; it was the best thing ever made. That was until I switched phones and downloaded it for apple. You can't do very much, even with my smart TV connected to wifi! It does not detect it and says no TVs present. Total let down
  • What happened?? 1/5

    By jackiesarae
    This app used to be great!! Had no problem with it. After a stupid FORCED update I was no longer able to use it. Complete garbage.
  • Lame 1/5

    By Wingthirteen
    Useless! Deleting now!
  • Worthless app on APPLE 1/5

    By Wreefwgcshsjc
    It's free on my note 4. App expects me to buy a $50 pronto item just to have it work with my I phone. I could buy several new remotes with that kind of money. Buying an iPhone has proven to be a waste of money.
  • Worthless For Apple 1/5

    By Psnyder1985
    Apple Devices Do NOT have an IR Remote so this APP does NOT work without an added device.
  • Desepcionada 1/5

    By Llereiinii
    Ya no puedo cambiar la tele almenos que compre algo o utilize wifi
  • 🤔🤔 5/5

    By 😩❤️😬
    How to set a blue-ray on this app
  • Garbage 1/5

    By Shaquanabrown
    Doesn't work
  • Old version is better 1/5

    By Gabrieljs99
    Now you need to use your Wi-Fi to connect to the TV and other things
  • Needs iPad app 3/5

    By UNOlker
    Just bought yesterday on Amazon. For the $37, it gets the job done of physically replacing all my remotes, and the range covers my 900sq foot apartment. The app itself isn't pretty, and has to run in iPhone mode on the iPad mini I'm using just as the remote (sonos / Apple TV / Fios). Hardware feels like a good value so far, at least compared to an IR remote extender of similar price. Software NEEDS an iPad version. No excuse as they have an apple Watch version. It would definitely benefit from a little refresh, but it does work.
  • F^^k you buddy 1/5

    By Lostmyphoneinurmom
    Lol "remote" the app is not only confusing to a new user theres not even a remote (the reason i searched for tv remote on the app store" false advertising and also just garbage i hate you for wasting my time and phone memory
  • Waste of time for iPhone users 1/5

    By Channonbstone
    We accidentally broke out tv remote. My boyfriend downloaded this app on his Samsung and said it worked great. He suggested I should do the same for when he's not around. So I downloaded it and it's telling me in order to get the EXACT SAME features as my boyfriend has on his Samsung I have to pay $50 to buy a device off of Amazon (who knows if there's shipping costs involved). I literally just want to be able to turn my tv on/off and turn the volume up/down... how does that make any sense that as an iPhone user it will cost me $50 with an extra device but it's free with no extra device for a Samsung? If you've got an iPhone DONT WASTE YOURE TIME WITH THIS APP.
  • Calm down people 4/5

    By rbinz
    So many negative reviews based on apples failure - people Apple has refused to add a IR sensor in the iPhones. HTC and Samsung have IR, so peel on Apple requires additional hardware. this is a Apple issue not the application - I use the app on my HTC one and it rocks / disappointed in Apple for being so far behind the competition!!!
  • Don't waste your time 1/5

    By KanD Ceedee
    You have to buy an additional device in order for it to work. Not worth it. Uninstalling.
  • Htc user /iPod user 3/5

    By Mickie D's
    Cool app if you have the htc one m8 or similar
  • Play store is better 1/5

    By AAGGB21
    I agree with everyone else. When you have had better, there is no comparison. I now use my Samsung as my remote. Wish it were the same with iphone😩
  • I can't work it on my tv ??? 1/5

    By Me me98
    Ummm I just want to turn my tv off why can't I just turn it off like I used to !! This is frustrating. Need To go back to the old ways .
  • Junk 1/5

    By Space ray
    Used to work fine on iPhone, now requires pronto? Lame....
  • Wow 1/5

    By Kymoore
    Seriously it's a freakin remote why would I need to buy another device to use it when it's absolutely free on my Samsung ? Makes no freaking sense
  • Crap! 1/5

    By TRV Racing
    Basically just an ad for a Pronto remote you have to buy. All this app does is list programs...NO REMOTE CONTROL included!
  • Not good for pranks 1/5

    By Wish cotton
    Don't get it
  • It used to work. It doesn't now. 1/5

    By Gpujic12345
