It will tell you to enter a password and then say wrong passcode. There is no pw. Also you can’t turn the tv on w this remote , it won’t show my tv most of the times even if the tv is on . So it’s an app that works when it wants to .
Doesn’t work - developers did not follow up 1/5
Since paying for this app, it basically hasn’t worked. It never locates my device despite connecting perfectly before i paid for the app. I’ve tried reinstalling to no avail. I contacted the developers with feedback and never received a response.
Worked 2 weeks now it doesn’t see the tv.
Too Many Ads - Do not “immediately dismiss” 1/5
This is a fair app in terms of capabilities, but not worth 5 bucks in my opinion. The frequency of the pop-up ads make it unusable in its unpaid form. The remotes that came with my Bravias work just fine so the “cool factor” of controlling your TV with a phone is short lived. 30 minutes in my case.
Doesn’t work much of the time 2/5
When it connects, it’s fine. More than half the time it doesn’t connect.
There is no keypad to enter code and complete connection with tv
Best for Sony Bravia 4/5
By Dr Babaa
We own 4 of various model Sony Bravia TV’s.
Of all the available Sony remote apps I tested, this has the best feature set.
I wish it had the Action Menu defines as a button. And wish you could more easily toggle between which TV you are connecting to.
Lastly wishing for haptic feedback.
Despite these missing items I decided to go ahead and purchase the ad free version.
Better than the Sony Remote 5/5
This app is better than the remote that comes with the TV itself. TV manufacturers shouldn't even make remotes anymore.
Bad crashy app 2/5
Doesn't work half the time, there’s much better apps for remotes out there.
Not working 1/5
Not working now
Keyboard doesn’t work on YouTube app 3/5
I couldn’t help but to notice that the keyboard typing function doesn’t work on YouTube app on my Sony (Bravia) KD-75X750F. The weirdest part is that if I type numbers on the main remote section, it types numbers into YouTube but the keyboard doesn’t work for typing letters or numbers. Unfortunately, this is the only feature I care about when it comes to having a remote control app for my TV. Sorry... Otherwise the app seems alright. Yes, there are ads, but the app developer needs compensation of some kind. I get it.
Works great...except... 2/5
when not repeatedly trying to find and press ’X’ to close the numerous and un-asked for advertisements
Paid 5 bucks for inconvenience 1/5
By 5 stinking bucks
The app would not recognize the tv if the tv is off. Thus, I can’t use the app to turn on the tv. I have to use the Sony remote to turn on the tv in-order to use the app. What is the point of this app if I have to use the factory remote. I sent feed back to the developer and get nothing back. I love to support developers for good apps, but I got fool this time.
This app works beautifully the first day or so I had it. Then, when I paid $5 to remove ads the app ceased to function at all.
Now, whenever I open it I only get a screen with a “send feedback” button. Tried deleting and reinstalling multiple times as well as rebooting my phone. Nothing helps. Being as it was the only thing I can do in the app, I utilized the Send Feedback button to email the creator and ask what the deal was. Got no response.
This is shameful and I’d like my $5 back
Works well if it can connect to the TV 3/5
This app works for my X900F. However after a while it would stop connecting to the TV. I had to power on the TV manually once for it to find it, then this would work for a while. One improvement I’ll suggest: put Back and Home buttons on the first control page as well, so I don’t need to constantly switching pages.
This app does everything the remote can do. Don’t think I’ll ever go back to using the actual tv remote. It’s worth the upgrade for no ads too! Sony for the win!
Works Very Well with my Sony Bravia 5/5
The app works well with my sony bravia tv. There are some ads showing now then but it’s totally tolerable or you can remove them by purchasing the app. Thanks to the developer for this useful app.
It connects but that’s about it 1/5
You can move the mouse but entering a web address and getting it to the tv is impossible. It might show that you can enter text but that’s not happening.
Thank for making this app! 5/5
I’m not sure why Sony didn’t or why you aren’t working for them.
It could be good 2/5
1. When the tv is off the app can not turn it on.
2. The coders were lazy and did not label the buttons in the app so those with vision problems can not use the app.
3. Many of the tv features do not seem accessible with the app
All of these for Sony Bravia are completely useless 1/5
This one goes to games - promoting their games when you try to use it.
Ads. On a remote app. What?
Do not pay 1/5
This app stop working after I paid 4.99 to remove the Ads
I need my money back
Works great, love it! 5/5
By Lil Mike LC
Use this app with WiFi to the same router as TV & it works perfectly although a bit sluggish. With anticipation of proper button sequence, just type out 4 or 5 keystrokes on this virtual remote commands are executed quickly. Almost magic TV responds. This app is polished & complete, a virtual knockoff of the battery remote.
I wasn't able to use it at all. Screen remain black and tv never showed up
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!
