The Perfect App 5/5
Sony TV with AppleTV and want to control it from your phone in one place? This is the app without 1,000 different gimmicks. It does everything I want but one thing which is not remotely a showstopper, the 15s forward/back buttons. Other than that I find this a one stop app to do everything I want with my Sony TV with AppleTV.
To get on my soapbox for a moment, I agree with another review I read. This person built this app with their own blood, sweat, and tears. Nothing in life is free so either deal with the ads or buy the app. Stop whining that they should spend their time to make something free for you to use.
Not reliable 1/5
By Mike from Lincoln
When the app works it works well but many times the app cannot find the tv or asks for a pin
Screw you sony 1/5
I spend $4k for a new Sony tv & now you want another $5 to even remove commercials from your app(or to unlock features). Not only that but it has a 3-5 second lag for every input. It wouldn’t be so bad but the physical remote that came with tv quit working after 6 months & warranty support has been painful & unsuccessful thus far. I’m really disappointed after over 20 years as a Sony tv customer. My next tv won’t be a Sony due to the remote & app experience.
does not work 1/5
By ابو السيوف
The application does not work and asks to send an email !!!
Super slow 1/5
Takes awhile to register using any of the buttons like my phone shows i clicked the volume up button an it takes awhile to actually turn the volume up on my tv idk if it gets faster or not on the paid version i only used free version
APP works great! Need to manually turn on the TV first though. 5/5
Pay the few bucks for the app. In a perfect world the app would only be available for purchase. I really don’t like when the cheaper apps like this one have a free version. It makes it seem like a worse app than it is. It really works well. I only wish iPhone had the IR sensor so they could power on my device as well. Perhaps have an option to buy one for a cheap price with the purchase of the app. Anyway I’m happy with it.
Bad app 1/5
Always lagging and barely works.
Not asking for extra apps 1/5
Upon first opening the app, I chose my detected device and the app immediately took me to the App Store to get another app by the same developer—this one for a Roku device (which it detected that I have).
I already have a Roku remote app, and I don’t need another one. There was no way to use the app without downloading their Roku app, so I uninstalled.
Paid, it works, has one annoying flaw 4/5
Let me start by saying that all of the complaints about the ads on the free version should be immediately dismissed. Someone spent their time and resources developing this app and you should be thankful they even have a free version. Instead of being an entitled brat that expects a free handout, how about you pony up FIVE DOLLARS and support the developer? This will accomplish a few things:
1. It will incentivize the developer to improve the app
2. You won’t see ads
3. You’re supporting a small business
4. Maybe, just maybe, you’ll start approaching life with an “earn it” mentality and actually make something of yourself
Anywho, all sermons aside, the app works well. I experience some lag every once in a while. This isn’t a huge deal since I mainly use the app when I’m holding my child and can’t grab the actual remote. For $5, this is a value-add that I really appreciate.
This app is a lifesaver! 5/5
The remote sensor went out on nearly brand new TV. I couldn’t even turn my tv on and off. I tried other remote control apps but they were clunky and didn’t work well. This one is seamless, fast, and gives me access to everything a traditional remote would.
Won’t recognize TV 1/5
The app connected once with a pin. Then, after going about daily business, I attempted to use the app, but it cannot find the TV anymore. I’ve reset the modem and router, disconnected and reconnected my phone, and still nothing.
Feedback screen 1/5
When I try to use the remote from my phone, it tries to connect and then goes to feedback screen. How frustrating!
I want my money back. It doesn’t work!
It works then it does not . Help. Don’t do it !
Worthless app 1/5
DO NOT download this! I bought the premium version, and it is still terrible! The lag time from when you push the button to when the tv responds is 10-12 seconds. Also, it will frequently disconnect from the tv (every 30 seconds or so)
Much too slow 3/5
Press a button. Wait. Wait. Wait.
Press the next button. Wait. Wait. Wait.
It's a great idea, but much too slow.
Works pretty darn well 5/5
Just downloaded app to iPhone 4/5/19. Working great so far. Turns tv on/off, easy access to tv apps like Netflix, Hulu, Prime, etc.
Am going to try it out for a while and see how much of a nuisance in app ads are. Will consider buying ad-free version.
Volume issues 2/5
The app worked and then after the update every time i try to adjust the volume a few notches up or down it goes all the way down or all the way up (which is startling in the middle of the night to say the least). Super annoying, hope they fix the issue soon!
Miserable. Too many ads. 1/5
It’s just all ads! Can’t do anything! And there’s a SIGNIFICANT lag between pressing something on the remote and the action being executed on the TV.
Used to be great hopefully an update soon 3/5
This app used to work flawlessly on my 55x930e since the update there is no less than a 10 second delay between the phone and the tv
Don’t update 2/5
By John L1977
Worked ok before this recent update. Now every time you hit a button there’s a five second delay until the action is completed.
Stopped working 1/5
App stopped working and all it shows is a send feedback button. Perhaps no longer supported or working.
Worst app ever 2/5
By arashk sanati
Worst it’s not working most the time
By worst free app
When you open the app all you see is a black screen that reads “Discovered Devices” and under that it says “Send Feedback”. It does not allow you to do anything.
Updated tv and remote could no longer find it. Uninstalled and reinstalled app, now it won’t even search for the tv. Help!
The only thing 2/5
The only thing it says is to send feed back and there is nothing else I can do
Sony remote “wow” 5/5
By John cheese
Worth the price, it is way better than the factory remote. Allows one to do the functions quickly. Cost of course is for the ad free version. Which is why I paid for this version. Most apps are not worth paying for.
Connected but no keypad 1/5
Showed a connection but not a keypad to enter the code to complete the connection. No idea how to complete now.
Obtrusive Ads 2/5
By insolent theft
Very obtrusive full page ads that pop-up without warning. This is a problem as you are looking at the TV and just start clicking away on ads before you realize the remote is no longer working.
This app works great but is absolutely over run with ads. There are more ads than I’ve ever seen in any iPhone app. They pop up and take over your entire screen, and when you close the app there’s another prompt to buy the full version. It’s like I’m using an android.
Doesn’t work 1/5
11 month old Bravia TV. Same WiFi network as phone. Network accessed verified on both devices through other apps. TV was never “discovered “
OK remote for Sony 3/5
Has failed to find TV several times and keeps searching. No time out so you can’t try to reset. Had to delete app and reload a couple of times. Won’t turn on directTV box or TV when initially turning on set.
Can’t believe how many ads 1/5
By Cory Moyer
The first thing after pairing my phone to my TV, I received an ad. Okay, that’s fine. Then a few clicks.. advertisement. No thanks.
Simply won’t work 1/5
TV on, connected to network, cell phone on same network... won’t connect
Nice app, works as described 4/5
It does want $5 to stop the ads; fair enough, don’t expect anyone to work for free. I realized that I cannot control the volume of my non-network connected external speakers. And I may not be ready for touch remote sans any tactile feedback.
It works. Period. 5/5
This is a simple review for a simple app. I’ve tried them all and this one Does what it says it will do. Download it today!
Worst app 1/5
When I opened it a black screen came and did nothing.
By JANET MARIE DAVIS
It just says send feed back when I enter
Literally I downloaded this app and opened it and all it says is send feedback and nothing else. There’s no buttons to press and no where to navigate only a blank page that says send feedback. Stupid and a waste of my time. It probably hacked my phone.
This app is trash don’t buy it Because it has tons of ads you have to pay for to get them out and two at first it takes to a feedback and your stuck on this screen maybe you should try another app Please or... To creators: Update this app it’s trash and horrible
Perfect remote! 5/5
Works great! My actual remote broke on me and this app works so much better! Not to mention I can just scroll through the apps of the tv! Absolutely love this app!
Not Reliable 5/5
Worked for a couple, then it couldn’t find the tv at all. I tried deleting and re downloading. I lost my money with this app.
I had to watch (3) 30sec ads before navigating to my 1st selection on Hulu.
So easy I can’t believe it was free 5/5
By Petey CH
So many times apps don’t do what they advertise for one reason or another. I have a new Sony 43” 4K Bravia and my remote stopped working. Needed to update software and couldn’t from controls on TV. Downloaded this app over the other two I saw as rating was a little higher.
BOOM! I was blown away with the ease of use. Downloaded app, opened, found my tv on its own, selected my tv, typed in pair code and it works. Fantastic!
Thank you so much for this app, if I knew it worked this well prior I would have paid for an ad free version of this app. I’m so thankful to be able to have a controller for my TV again I don’t care about the ads.
This is ok. 1/5
All I see is discord devices
Doesn’t work... 1/5
Both my TV and mobile device are on the same network and only get the “Discovered devices” page with the option to send feedback.
Waste of time.
Ad spam, doesn't work 1/5
By horribke app
After installed the app the full screen ads begin, block the remote, rendering the app useless until you close and exit. Ads repeat immediately further blocking app. Completely useless. Then app didn't synch with TV. Deleted.
Better than the one that came with the TV 5/5
By NO RECORD
Works just great right away from the start.
Wish for macro buttons to set auto off timer to a specified length without having to push 15 things to set the TV to turn off in an hour. Way too much work.
Great app 5/5
Works well! But it does not turn on the tv when the tv is off. Also landscape orientation on iPad would be nice.
