Someone please tell me if I can use this with a Sony blue ray DVD/disc player
AnyMote is dead 1/5
This app worked great for a year, but now will not communicate with Alexa! Sent multiple emails to AnyMote with no response, app hasn’t been updated in months. Buyer beware!
Will remove review once refunded, but the OK button doesn’t work 1/5
The OK button is vital to the function of the remote, and I paid for the full version of the remote since the app connected to my tv and recognized it as an LG smart TV, and since the average reviews were so high, I was anticipating to have no problems, plus I played around with it for a few seconds and didn’t see any problems with it so I immediately bought the full version expecting to have a full functioning smart remote on my phone, only to find out that I can’t actually select anything without using the physical remote to press the selection for something, which completely defeats the entire purpose of this app. I emailed the developer the other day asking for a refund and I haven’t heard anything back and I’m really hoping they refund me, if not I’m gonna have to contact Apple because this is ridiculously unfair to charge me this kind of money for an app where I can’t even press a button that’s vital to the function of the remote :(
Not fully working 3/5
By Keeping Calm....
Won’t turn bedroom TV on. I power on with tv remote then AnyMote works great then. Will even allow me to power off....just not on.
Then dumb me, I purchase pro version so I can try hooking up my Sony smart tv. Won’t even find the IR signal. Wasted $7. Not really worth the 3 stars I gave it. Hope developer fixes this bug
Don’t waste your money!! 1/5
Downloaded and then you need an extra piece of hardware to work, then when you try to use the free it wants you to buy it. So angry I wasted $7
Nice and clean 5/5
I have been using the LG app for my tv for the longest time and I liked it pretty good. But I heard about this app to help be the middle man between Alexa and my tv. But now I use this app over my LG app. It’s nice and clean and has everything on one screen and doesn’t take a lot of time like other apps to fully connect once opening the app.
Do not pair with Alexa as promised
Fire stick 2/5
It worked GREAT with my LG smart TV so I decided to purchase the premium for $6.99 for my fire stick and it does not work with my fire stick. I lose my fire stick remote quit often so i downloaded the app to save time. I was highly disappointed when it did not work with my fire stick. The app also puts my phone on mute which is inconvenient. I feel as if i wasted $6.99 and would like a refund. It was 5 stars before i purchased the premium but now that i purchase the premium i give the app 2 stars.
Worthless crap!! 1/5
This app is worst than obamas immigration policies, complete waist of time and Money! How dare you charge people $6.99 for nothing! This is a sham! Do not purchase Do not use i wish there was a zero star option!
Not Pairing with Apple TV 4 2/5
I guess this should work with Apple TV, but I cannot get it to pair. I have tried all the suggested ways via the internets, but nothing. I have emailed the developers several times with no response.
It might be that Apple has changed something that broke the pairing with AnyMote, but dunno.
Basically the Apple TV thinks the pairing works, by the anymore app just sits on the “Code screen” and does not add the remote.
I was thrilled that this was going to be the remote of all remotes, but it’s not....
Glitchy, app freezes consistently, and I can’t consistently connect to a single device.
I’ve reinstalled, reconfigured, and even tried contacting the technical support team (TWICE) and never received a response. Feels like a $7 scam at this point...
No cloud, not able to creat a log in. 1/5
By Wiz. Oz
Email them regarding my issue of not able to creat a cloud log in, and I didn’t receive a response from the developer it’s been 2 weeks. Seems to no longer support Braodlink
Waste of time and $7 1/5
Been looking for an alternative to Logitech Harmony but sadly this isn’t it. Managed to successfully pair my Philips Hue Bridge and DirecTV, but the connection is lost pretty consistently. And I have mesh WiFi in my house along with gigabit speeds. Not to mention I’ve tried countless times to pair my Apple TV and every time I do, I input the pin with the Apple remote and the app freezes. Extremely disappointed. Then, I’ve tried to pair my Samsung Smart TV and that can’t be found somehow, except it’s a late 2016 model.
What’s really disappointing is that we can’t try all the remotes we have to see if we’re satisfied with the functions until we pay $7. Seems like there should be a trial period.
Does not work for DVD players 1/5
Says it’s universal but couldn’t find my Samsung blue ray dvd player. Wasted $6 for nothing. I want my money back
Use to work perfect 1/5
AnyMote worked perfect on iPhone for a year with Samsung tv and appl Siri tv. purchased second Samsung for kitchen AnyMote will not configure. Says device is on blacklist. No way to contact AnyMote to discuss the issue. Next issue, can not connect to Apple TV gets to code then hangs. Third can not back up because error says I’m on a server pretending to be remotes.anymotes.io. Too bad there’s no way to contact this app developer.
Won’t connect 1/5
Won’t connect to my Samsung smart tv. I left the developer an email and haven’t heard back.
The app will only say:
You are denied access to this device. Go to network settings and remove the device from the blacklist then try again.
Please contact me if you known of any solution.
Works well 5/5
Nice remote. Works on my iPhone and iPad. Roku smart TV.
Still looking for “power on” button. Otherwise it’s great. Also using with Amazon Echo Dot.
I don’t know if it works my TV 1/5
By Gym N.
You want me to $6.99 and I don’t even know if it works with my tv. The last five didn’t. Why would I give you money without knowing that. I wonder how many customers you lost because of this. Not a very smart move.
Does not work 1/5
Does not work. I have an iPhone 7 and Samsung TV and Spectrum cable. App always freezes each time I try to set up. Waste of my $7!
By cant configure
Just downloaded, want to control a Samsung tv, Apple TV box, denon amplifier and directv box. All are on WiFi on my home network.
It found my Samsung tv, but when I select configure, I get an Error message says: “you denied access to this device. Go to network setting and remove from blacklist.” I didn’t deny access. And which network setting, in the app? Went to settings, but no network settings are listed. And no black list anywhere I can find. Error message could be a lot more specific.
Great APP 5/5
Dont have to buy a new remote now!
Doesn’t work. Don’t buy 1/5
How can I get my money back. It doesn’t work with my fire stick. Yes I tried everything.
Cant get to connect 2/5
By josh granda
Try to connect to my vizio smart cast to set up and keep geting an ssl error secure conection could not be made message
By can't ********
TV discovered, PIN generated and input. That’s it. Nothing happened and nothing worked
Great ap/hidden fees 3/5
The ap works but as soon as I try to add another device it wants me to pay 7.00...
Lol it’s says it read a lot of tv brands my brain “oh wow that’s cool” go into the app can’t read my tv 😂but still a cool app looks awesome
External IR blasters and Apple Watch app don’t work 1/5
External IR blasters and Apple Watch app don’t work
Remotes recorded with Broadlink RM Mini 3 do not work at all.
IR Remotes (downloaded from the app’s database) will connect to the Broadlink RM and only work for 1-2 minutes before losing connection and failing.
The only way to get the Broadlink RM to work again is to “forget” and then re-add the Broadlink before it will work again.
Since there is no way to do this on the Apple Watch, there is no way to make the remote start working again without opening the app on the phone and deleting the external IR Blaster and then re-connecting it. Very very frustrating.
If I open the app on the phone and Watch at the same time, the Watch app crashes.
I bought this app because I wanted to control my TV and devices with my Apple Wartch but this app doesn’t work with Broadlink RM as advertised.
I paid $6.99 for an app that doesn’t work at all. I want a refund.
Perfect remote 4/5
No frills, bells or whistles - just the basics, which is exactly what a remote should be. Connected with Hisense R6 Smart TV on the first try with no hassles.
Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a simple, responsive, intuitive remote.
Samsung tv 1/5
I have a samsung smart tv and i paid for this app and now it’s not finding my smart tv.
Does not work 1/5
I purchased for $5.99 but it does not work on either my Sony TV or Sony Blu-Ray player. I emailed customer support and they never responded. I would like a refund.
Shortcut support? 5/5
The app works great for my Roku TV and Alexa. I want to buy it but I really want it to have support for the new Siri shortcuts app. Any plans for this?
Couldn’t get anywhere 1/5
By let me post a review already
App crashed 3 times before I could try to connect to my tv. App was so slow, I’d click on something and it would take forever to load. Too frustrating, app deleted!
App freezes up connecting 1/5
Says connecting to tv, fire tv, flashes a bunch then freezes. Unusable after killing the app and retrying a half dozen times
It doesn’t work 1/5
It’s connected to my FireTV but nothing happens when I press the buttons
Direct TV Works BUT - only 1 Remote 4/5
I connected to one of my Direct TV units VERY easily and it works GREAT! So I decided to add my other Direct TV unit to discover you have to purchase to “Pro Upgrade” to connect more than 1 device ...
Need to buy Pro version to use it as a remote 1/5
This should say it all...
Does not work 1/5
I have a Phillips smart tv, I have turned it on, it’s connected and nothing. It can”t even find the TV. I better not be charged for this, I will have to contact apple if I am :/
Where’s the support? 1/5
By Bob Winnie
I have a fire tv from amazon. The software sees it but regardless what I do it fails to connect. I wouldn’t mind upgrading if I knew this worked but it doesn’t seem to work at all. Where do I go to get help? I don’t see that button either.
No support 1/5
I’m having issues connecting to my tv. I sent a email to support that included all my equipment and still have not received a response.
By This app is deceiving
I’d like my money back I don’t have the special device that’s needed and they don’t mention this when app is shown in Apple Store. Bait app, Westinghouse TV not able to pair without an IR device.
Doesn’t work with Apple TV 1/5
Says I need to configure it which I do over and over and it still says I need to configure it
Not working on Sharp smart tv’s. 1/5
Dont waste your time.
App works, but no one home at customer support 1/5
I’d like to give this app 4 or 5 stars, it works great controlling 90% of my AV gear with Global Cache IP2IR adapters.
However, I have been trying to reach the developer/customer support with a few simple questions via multiple emails, twitter and even facebook for over week now and there has been 0 response from them.
If they ever respond back I will update my review.
Worst app I’ve ever used it’s like it has a mind of its own it took me over 5 minutes to such for one show because it will double click or sometimes just exit out of the search bar total bs save yourself the headache
Unable to use 1/5
I downloaded the app into my iPhone 7. The app did nothing besides connect to my fire stick then continued to crash.
WARNING VO Users! 1/5
This app does not play nice with voice over. I downloaded this app to test Alexa capabilities with my cable box. Would have made changing channels easier as a blind individual. bIG mistake!!
What I got instead was a frozen phone that got very HOT... it also interfered with voice over and speaker. It lowered to almost inaudible level. No amount of resetting corrected the issue. I had to do a complete restore from a previous backup.... If you are a voice over user, BE WARNED!!
Apple X disappointed- impossible to get help 1/5
By Dissapointed Panda
iPhone 10. App is slow and crashes 90% of the time. I did not realize you had to buy an additional $90 device for this to even work. Trying to contact customer service is impossible because the app is so slow and the links either go nowhere or react so delayed. Sounded like a great app but not user friendly and they’ve already got your money before you can realize it!
Smart tv not detected 1/5
App could not find my Philips smart tv. Waste of time to download.
App doesn’t work for me 1/5
When I try to add a new device the app crashes. Not sure what’s going on but is disappointing to say the least.
