Screw the apple version 1/5
By A very annoyed person now
Had it on Droid and loved it. Didn't need some additional receiver. I could instantly hook up electronics to my phone. Now I can't. Don't download this crap.
Great on android garbage on iPhone 1/5
By Nick name takenhh
This worked amazing one my HTC One. Just got an iPhone 7 and won't connect. If it's not compatible with Apple please remove it from the store.
Really bad one. 1/5
I used this app in android phone. It used infra red mechanism. Now it wants to use my wifi and could not find any connected device. What a waste
Works, but could be better 3/5
1) The app works as advertised WITH an external IR device. Your iPhone won't magically grow an IR port, geniuses. 🙄
2) I love the guide integration and the way the app allows channel selection via the guide. Kudos for that.
3) What I don't get is how inflexible and lacking in configurability the remotes are. I get one clunky "custom" remote in an awkward grid pattern. The order of remotes can't be changed. Buttons can't be configured or integrated on the core remotes. I'd pay (a little) for this functionality, and it doesn't seem like it should be that big a deal.
4) Changing the connected iOS device (i.e., from one phone to another) is unnecessarily awkward.
Still, I picked up my Pronto cheap (meh.com) and--apart from the mentioned frustrating limitations--I love being able to control all of my entertainment units from an iPhone app and without the need for line-of-sight from the phone.
Could be so much better 1/5
I guess this isn't really the apps fault but it's still an issue. I first got this app on an android when I couldn't find my tv remote. It worked effortlessly with my galaxy. Then I switched back to iPhone and I was excited to use this app as a remote again. But every time I open this app, it tells me that I needed to buy a separate device in order to use it. I don't get the purpose of that, especially since with the android, the app worked just with my phone. I wish it didn't require spending extra money.
Works better on android 1/5
Doesn't work on iPhone it's trash
Not good 1/5
It just doesn't work very well
THIS APP IS NOT HELPFUL AT ALL. JUST A WASTE IF TIME🙄🖕🏾
Works. But could be better 3/5
The UI is a bit clunky.
I would be like the option to skip the guide all together and go right to the remote.
Also. The widget has not worked since I installed the app 2 years ago.
Otherwise. Does a great job controlling my devices.
Looks like people are stupid 4/5
Looking at all of the negative reviews, I just can't believe how stupid people are. The app is for controlling the Promto IR Blaster device, which it clearly states. So what if it worked with your Samsung with an IR sensor built in? This is for legacy devices that the blaster device connects to. Learn to read before looking stupid.
Not working properly. Iphone 5 3/5
It's inconsistent. Across Samsung and iPhone devices, sometimes Peel Smart works with no issues and other times it cannot find my Zip code, the brand, or REQUIRES specifically Wifi in the iPhone 5. It didnt use to be like this at all because it let you operate the TV... but i cant even do that anymore.
Apple TV 1/5
Doesn't work with Apple TV. It says it does but it doesn't.
Worked few months then stopped 1/5
After working for a few month "pronto" ran out of batteries. Installing brand new batteries solve the problem for a few weeks then "pronto" stopped responding again . Tried to pair pronto with my phone again via peel app but no luck. Peel sees "pronto" but never can finish pairing. Followed FAQ reset "pronto" try to re-pair again - no joy. Very frustrating
I loved this app on my Samsung galaxy switched to iPhone and downloaded it again. Now I can't connect it to my surround sound bar(I have no remote for it). Only connects via things running off wifi!
Missing options? 3/5
Why can't I find the smart home control options anywhere in the app???
You have to buy Pronto 1/5
You have to buy Pronto to use this as a smart remote. I had this app on another phone and didn't have to do that. Bummer they changed it.
You have to buy their thing to connect to your tv
By Disgusted with app
I use Peel smart remote for my Galaxy phone, so I looked for it to use with my Iphone.
It says that it works with Iphone.... WRONG..
When I attempt set-up, it tries to sell me a $50 app to make it work.
Peel.....I like your remote, but if you want money, say so UP FRONT !
If you switch from Android to iPhone 1/5
By Meli Melz
It does not connect to my TCL tv as it would with my pervious Galaxy Note 4 flawlessly. With my iPhone it said to connect to IP address with wifi and both phone and tv were on and still nothing. This would be very helpful for people who doesn't have Apple TV, and switch from Android to Apple
Not for Iphone 1/5
It does not work for iPhone without buying additional equipment. Why is it even in the App Store?
Waste of time!!!
Doesn't work 1/5
Must pay on iPhone 1/5
I had this with my Samsung phone and it was awesome. I could program any tv for free. Now with the iPhone you have to buy something separate
Peel fails 1/5
Peel is a failure on all levels. If you don't have "Pronto" this app is completely useless. Find a real app that can actually be beneficial.
The worst 1/5
By The Worst!$!!!&$$&7)?/!/$/$2
This app is not going to help. Either look for your remote or buy a new one!
Doesn't work 1/5
Could be a wonderful app. 3/5
I really like this app but there's several things they can improve:
1. Add an option to add devices by code.
2. Remove ads when customers connects a pronto peel device.
3. Fix annoying crashes when the app is learning new codes.
Love it! 5/5
Just what I've been hoping-looking for, well done! ( Samsung TV, Directv box, iPhone 5s )
Not Like Android!!! 2/5
If you came thinking that it was going to be like the Android version then you are wrong because you have to buy a IR peripheral to make the app work, or have a TV that is connected to the internet that your device is on. The app works but it isn't simple like the Android version. (Hoped this helped someone save their megabytes!)
Not compatible 1/5
I just recently changed over to an iPhone from using my LG phone where I had and app already on the phone to sync in order to use the phone as a remote for the t.v.. So I decided to download this app, wrong decision. I have an antenna for my t.v and all I wanted to do was to be able to change the channels and volume on my t.v., this never happened. Worst App Ever, Not Useful for IPhone7 at all. Please if anyone knows of an app to achieve my very simple goals of just changing the channels on my t.v. Please let me know. This app gets 5👎🏾's down.

The best 5/5
By Tiffany Adkins
I love it
App works, widget doesn't 2/5
The app is amazing, I have a pronto in our theatre room and it controls everything flawlessly. However, the widget never works and just opens the remote app. Please fix this.
The UI is a little lackluster but it works so I'm not complaining about that.
I loved this app on my old Samsung that I had for a couple of years. I used it all of the time with my TV. It was great not to have to keep up with a second remote and be able to just use my phone to turn the TV on and off at night in bed. I upgraded to an iPhone 7 Plus and now it doesn't work at all. They say the iPhone is supposed to be better however what is the point of even having this app because it doesn't work at all.
Not good 1/5
By Not not horrible
Horrible for iOS but worked for s5. Do not waste your time.
Idk what people are talking about saying this app is bad. This works amazingly and it goes my Apple Watch too. Now I can just go to the app on my watch and turn the volume down on my tv. Easy peasy. I have a Sony smart tv.
From the iPhone app I can even do things like change the HDMI and go to Netflix. Super app.
Waste of a click 1/5
Doesn't work unless you buy their device. Was good now is flaming garbage.
Don't waste your time 1/5
By Brenner Marvel
You have to buy a device and pair it to use the app
Didn't work 1/5
For my Vizio 3D TV
Best Option I've Found 5/5
Way better than the Logitech remote I was using and keeps getting better.
Leaving this review because they wasted my time. Advertised as a universal remote, you need something called a Pronto. Nice try and no thanks.
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
By j. speed
Why doesn't this app work on iPhones? 😱😟
Be more upfront 1/5
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.
Works really well 5/5
Super easy to use
Does not work with iPhone unless you have a separate device called Pronto!
Why do I have to buy something in order for this app to work?
Why bother 1/5
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?
