Zero stars if I could 1/5
After the original download the app works great. Once you close it and try to reopen at a later time it will CRASH immediately! Then you have to delete it and then download it again! You have to disconnect after using it or the app will crash immediately after a period of time goes by. Waste of my time! Also some buttons don’t work. Example; the “red dot” is used to delete a recorded program. Pressing this button on the app remote does nothing….
Codes only work for a while, then you have to figure which code it changes to. Can be very time consuming. Sometimes you just can’t find a code that works.

Was going to pay the $3:99 for no advertisement, but used app once , did not use for 1 hour, now won’t work. Disappointed!!!!!!
Crashing issues.. Fix it? 2/5
Decent app, but major crashing issues, if this was fixed it’d be great but it’s annoying having to delete & re-install the app EVERY time you go out of the app.
App works fine until you pay to remove ads 2/5
I found the app convenient and decided to pay the $3.99 to remove the intrusive ads. Unfortunately, one I paid the $3.99, the app crashes every time I try to start it. Phone restart does not fix it.
Now, my option is to remove the app that wipes all history and purchases, download it again, and have the ads, or pay the $3.99 again and habit it crash. Feels like Groundhog Day!
App works great the first time you open it, but if you close and try to reopen it crashes every time.
I have to delete the app and reinstall to get it to work.....once....then it crashes again.
Crashing issues 1/5
As other review stated accurately
Good enough 1/5
It took a minute to figure out how to set it up but it works better than the app I paid for.
Update: it’s unusable after the first time. The app crashes and simply don’t work.
Not easy to install and crashes 2/5
It’s not easy to install because it doesn’t explain that you need to know the IP address to your network. Once you figure that out the rest is a breeze but it will crash you get one get use out of it before you have to delete it and restore it back again.
Amazing quick fix! 5/5
I downloaded this to use while we wait for our new remote to arrive in the mail. (We lost it.) I can’t believe this app works. It’s a great temporary fix IMO.
Worked fine until I spent money and upgraded to the “No Ads version”. Crash after crash. Wish I had my few bucks back. 🤬
Terrible app😕😕😕😕 1/5
The app is absolutely terrible it works for one night and I was very excited. But after that the next day it did not work at all it wouldn’t even let me get into the app.
Crashes too often 3/5
By joe of the north
It was great at first but after use, close and come back it crashes immediately and needs reinstall
Works well but crashes with every use. Must remove the app and reinstall every time I open it.
Installed with no issues but once I close the app and try to reopen, it crashes. I just installed and paid for no ads but haven’t been able to use it since I installed it. I have uninstalled and re-installed. It still crashes!!! Main reason I installed the app was to have a remote in my possession at all times because my husband can’t seem to share. Now I’m out $20 for something that doesn’t work!!! Very upsetting 😡
Piece of garbage! 1/5
By All DA People
Do not download this app. It is the biggest pice of garbage in the Apple store. It will work the first time you use it but once you close and reopen, it constantly crashes. To use again you must delete and re-download each time. How can the developers know this and not fix?
App crashes 01 1/5
This app crashes. Waste of 3.99 don’t down load it. App crashes.
Doe NOT work 1/5
By Tanya franklin
DTV for 4 months, this APP is not compatible
Works great when first set up......but crashes when reopened 1/5
This worked great once I opened it and identified my receivers IP address. But it once you close app and try to reopen it the app crashes.
Worked on time 1/5
Once opened next day it immediately closes everytime
Crashing issues 3/5
Easy to set up and works great once downloaded.
However once you’ve gone out of the app for any reason and come back it crashes. So you need to delete the app and reinstall.
Can’t complain other than that.
Waste of time 1/5
Works once then doesn’t work. Don’t waste your time.
App will not launch 1/5
By OH & FL mom
Seems I’m having the same problem as others. If you close the app it’s never going to work again, delete and reinstall, same result, works great till you close it. Who wants to delete and reinstall every time they want to change the channel? I wish I could give less than 1 star
Bugged app 1/5
By 8th year using
The app is flawed, once you download it and use the first time it’s fine. Once you close the app and come back to use the app, it will not open. It literally opens for a split sec and closes. This will happen over and over until you delete the app and download it again. This has happened in exact fashion every time I’ve ever used the app.
1/2 a star 1/5
By Looking for the next great APP
I would give them a half a star. The half stars for the great looking remotes but that’s all they have. As the person that said before once it’s downloaded you can’t use it it disappears as soon as you go back to it it goes straight back to your home screen. The app is worthless.
This doesnt work at all 1/5
This app does not work at all for me and the video to help me was for a completely different remote.
Doesn’t work 1/5
This app was great when I downloaded it.
I even paid for no ads, but when you close the app out it doesn’t load back up. It goes straight to my home screen on my phone. Really disappointed in this app.. BUYER BEWARE this app needs some work done.
Does NOT work 1/5
By Megatron 2.0
Simply stated, this does not work.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Doesn’t work at all. Just got it all set up and nothing but says it’s connecred
Worked great and then... 1/5
It didn’t work at all. I was able to use it after doing other things on my phone the first day I installed it, but after that it just kicked me out everytime I tried to use it. Disappointing. On my Android there were several Directv remote apps that worked with no issues. Not so lucky with this iPhone. 😫
Not worth getting 1/5
It works for maybe 10 clicks then keeps popping up adds until it stops working all together. Your forced to delete the app and reinstall it if you want it to work again. It even kept asking me for a Nickname but refused to use the first 8. I bet if I was posting a review it liked I wouldn’t of had such a problem
Only partial controls 3/5
Not all actions work. Can’t turn on or off. Can’t pause.
Have to have internet 1/5
You have to have internet to even set it up, and there is no internet here, the remote was lost where I work at and now we have to wait on the new one would have have 5 start but u get a 1 only because it makes me give at least one
Won’t launch 1/5
After downloading the app to my iPhone and assigning the remote to a specific DirecTV box IP, the remote worked great. That’s until I closed the app to use my phone, then I attempted to launch the app again and it tries but immediately goes back to the home screen. After many attempts, I deleted the app then reinstalled it. Again, it worked great while app was open. However, once I closed the app the results were the same. I deleted and re-installed it 4 times and tried various remotes. Same issue! Developers need to fix this.
This crap doesn’t even work. I had my external devices turned on and your crappy app just didn’t work
Crashes EVERYTIME 1/5
Don’t let the app close, and don’t stop using it. You will have to delete the app and start all over. Waste of time
Remote Directv 1/5
After downloading work just that day. Won’t start again keeps crashing
Works but you have to disconnect 5/5
We lost our remote and this app is just what we needed to get off the hallmark channel. The only downfall is if you don’t disconnect from it then when you try to open the app at a later time it will crash and you’ll have to delete the app and re-download it. Other than that it’s great and does exactly what we need!
You need WI-FI just a heads up 3/5
I don’t have Wi-fi so I uninstalled it.
Rip off 1/5
By Stickeye cookie
Stoped working after I paid! How do I get my money back. I’d better!
It’s all good but it just crashes and you can’t use it anymore
Won’t connect 1/5
Need your actual remote to even set it up. Directions for connecting do not work, don’t even have the options listed on directv. Useless app.
Crashes before the Day was over 3/5
Won’t open 1/5
By DogByte 13
I downloaded and had it working just fine. When I close the app and try to open it again it won’t open. Deleted app. Re-installed with the same outcome. App is useless
Connectivity Issues 2/5
Have to reload app each time I need to use it. Crashes after a uncertain amount of time.
Crashing Remote 1/5
I used this app a while ago but now with the newest IOS update it keeps crashing. Perhaps the developer needs to update the app.
By bent wrench
