Works pretty well but not better than a hardware remote 3/5
By Based Gxd
My batteries died in my remote so I’ve just been using the app for quite some time. It works for the most part except in these situations:
1) When on the “SmartCast” the arrow buttons don’t work at all.
2) The widget in my control center doesn’t ever work so I have to open the app to do anything.
Personally as long as I am not needing to do any of that “extra” stuff the app works perfectly.
Great app love it!
Works great. 5/5
This is a great app. Works awesome.
Buggy, barely works 1/5
The hardware works great, the software however (this app) is a complete other story:
UI looks cheap and clunky, frequent errors and failures, app is not intuitive and very slow.
As an engineer that does software for a living this looks like a it’s a complete afterthought. Bad quality, and very frustrating
Very good 5/5

No chasing remotes anymore

Good idea terrible implementation 1/5
Just a shoddy app with great ambitions. For example open up Hulu use search function and use the keyboard on phone on to type except as you might not expect the backspace/delete key on the keyboard does not function forcing you to use the touch controls to navigate to the backspace key on tv screen. Very irritating. Also those touch navigate controls on phone screen are erratic. Just ended up upgrading HULU subscription mistakingly because touch controls did not move back forward as excepted. Yeah thanks i am now trying to undo the instant upgrade to monthly fee.
This app is a game changer like I lost my remote Like this morning
Accidentally found it! 5/5
By Mr. 306
Our remote broke and my wife suggested we download an app being funny but we found it and we love it
Everything on the app works for me except for the arrow pad. I keep trying to use it but I can’t scroll through anything. Which means I can’t watch what I want to watch. And I have no idea how to fix this.
Update: I’ve already tried deleting the app and then downloading it again. It still doesn’t work.
Works most of the time 4/5
It’s really handy to have when the remote is mounted on my tv. It has sporadic moments when it doesn’t connect but reconnecting usually fixes the problem. It’s a feature rich app so you can change settings and such from the app. Overall I use it pretty often.
Having Tv remote control on my tablet and phone are extremely convenient, we no longer fight for the control and no longer have to be looking for it.

I love being able to turn my kids tv off while I’m in my room!!! I know who’s tv is on and off!!
This is a great app 5/5
I love this app!! It was really easy to set up and navigate. I had been looking for a app that I can use as a remote( I keep losing mine) and all of them sucked. Except this one Keep up the good work y’all!!
Great app, but disconnects randomly 4/5
I have really enjoyed using this app. My remote control broke and we were in a weird place where we could not use the TV. So we downloaded this app and it was really helpful. The only issue that I have is it sometimes the app disconnect from the TV at random.
Works all that needs to be said
M70-D3: App is solid 5/5
App is stable
Love it! 5/5
This app comes in so handy! Especially when I can’t find my remote lol
Remote app works sometimes, rarely. Most of the time the remote will work for everything besides the most important keys of going up, down, left, right and the ok button. Can’t even pick a show but I can sure change the volume. App is trash.
Great when it works.. 2/5
My remote is broken and I’ve been using the app while waiting to get one. It’s great WHEN IT ACTUALLY WORKS. Unfortunately after a few days of being a useful remote, it randomly cannot connect to my TV. Closing out and reopening the app doesn’t help. uninstalling and reinstalling fixes the issue 9/10, though it’s getting frustrating to have to do each time I want to pause a show or change the volume on my TV.
App completely broken with latest release 1/5
Does not work.
The app will change the input and open the menu, but the directional and select buttons do not work, making it worthless.

I be losing my remote and this just makes the search all the easier
Gets the job done 5/5
By Timbo Gotti
Need I say more. No literally I’m not saying anything else, unless the are paying.
Worked. Once. 1/5
Downloaded this app as a stopgap measure until I could find a replacement for my tv’s remote (Vizio remotes have got to be the FLIMSIEST devices out there- mine lasted less than a year before it totally died on me. It feels like it was made out of cardboard). Turns out the same people crapping out TV remotes are also turning out these forms of digital flotsam, too.
While setup was easy enough and the tv appeared to jive with the app, nothing wants to communicate, citing a “connection error”. That’s odd, as everything appears to recognize each other in the options screen. But for some reason, nothing connects. I can’t even turn the TV on at present.
Bad look not only for this app, but for Vizio TVs as well.
Perfect fir kids 5/5
I have the remote hidden from my kids so I only use my phone, works great!
Absolute spyware garbage 1/5
Asks for a ton of personal information up front, can't seem to successfully connect to its own products. Vizio sure has their priorities straight. Grab the data and run, who cares about customer experience amirite? Guess this sound bar's going to be gathering data from mice in the landfill - I wonder what they watch on Netflix? Vizio's soon to find out. Will never buy another product from them, I don't like being the product.
Love it easy to work , only thing if my wifi not connected it won’t work other than that wonderful!
Waste of time 1/5
Doesn’t work. Horrible.
By my part of gen z
I had lost my control but this app was a great replacement although it was a bit buggy in the begging non the less a great app. Recommended for VIZIO TV’s.
It works fine😌
1 bad to 100 good 4/5
The app works beautifully and I have little to no issues with it other than not being able to turn on the TV but there’s only so much you can do
By trump coming back 2024
Does not work works when it wants to I type in the pin that comes up on my screen says it the wrong pin get it together this is a brand new tv I should have this many issues abt to take the tv back a buy a different brand
Saved my life 5/5
I unknowingly dropped my original remote in a cup of beer and it remained there over night. I downloaded the app and I’ve been using it ever since.
nice app 5/5
this is a nice app
By Ayden&Aubreys mom
Sometimes I have trouble connecting but for the most part I love the app!
New new 1/5
I have a brand spanking new IPhone 12 Pro Max (is that what it’s called?) and a brand new Vizio TV.
iPhone expressed seriousness of this relationship but vizio is having commitment problems. It’s not us, it’s you.
No. We can’t be friends either, it will just be too painful for us.
My SmartCast is stuck on Xbox setting 3/5
Please help me
DONT GET THIS APP 1/5
By jack in the bix
Good not great 5/5
Glitches sometimes but for the most part works on cue
Way better than before 5/5
Hate the new interface 1/5
The old interface was sleek and very easy to navigate. The new one is cluttered and is impossible to navigate at a quick glance.
Longtime Annoyance Now Fixed! 5/5
Thank you for fixing the obnoxious “Please turn on Bluetooth!” system pop-up every time I opened the app and merely wanted to use the remote over Wi-Fi, goes back to five stars because of this finally being fixed!
There are places that could use refinement though, like the four oversized navigation buttons at the bottom of the app that look huge size-wise when comparing them to any other iOS app, but the app mostly the app functions as I’d expect now!
Great App 5/5
I love this app so much. I was having trouble finding my remote so I thought about getting an app. The first app I got ended up charging my card, so I came back to the App Store and looked for more apps. I ended up finding this and I love it so far. I have voice control for you tv and it’s a remote. For anyone one looking to replace your remote this app would be a great choice.
Very useful 5/5

This app works well and is very easy to use
