    i think this is almost great, but i there may some bug on encoder with gobo and prism, i can't find the way to charge mode!(eg. gobo rot or index,prism rot speed) ref.Gio with Mac Quantum profile. if the app can be better, i can really walk away form gio and go to everyway to program the light.❤️

    This is a trial version, and is useless. You need to purchase a licence within the app, which is $50. Because it is an in app purchase, it cannot be transferred to a new device, like a new phone.

    doesent connect to the desk unless i turn off my 4g internet. i think the app is trying to use my mobile internet to communicate with the desk.

    Overall, the additions are excellent. The auto connect is easy. All functions are accessible. Having direct selects, faders, all with labels has brought the convenience of the Console to the remote. Occasionally it takes a bit longer to do basic functions just because there's so many more screens to flip through. I do wish it was possible to turn off the animations of changing screens. I'm partially inclined to request magic sheet integration but fear the issues. Best to do the basics well.

    Helpful to have a remote for your console always in your pocket, but functionality is rough. Definitely could use improvements /updates. Update: having to open the app with internet to verify that I paid is a royal pain, no longer easier to test lights when up on a ladder/lift. Also I sorely miss being able to patch fixtures. It looks prettier, but at least the classic version is less buggy. It's solid and dependable. I prefer classic free app now.

    I will give 5 stars then. Also, direct select access would be killer. 5 Stars Given!

    I've owned this app for years, love the updates! Just one suggestion... Can we have the option to use the volume keys as next and last? Especially for channel check, I want to be looking at the lights and not have to look down because my thumb moved when checking 200+ lights every night.

    Really want to like this app.. won't let me make the in app purchase with credit card, play store card, or paypal. I followed all the google advice for clearing playstore cache, re starting device etc etc etc. Please make available a "straight purchase" version, or find me the but.

    Took some getting used to, but ultimately a magnificent app. However, I sorely miss basic patch functions and hope they return with future updates.

  15. Luke Holliger-avatar

    The update is great. The UI is easier to work with and the functionality is exactally what I want. HOWEVER the way it manages the free vs paid version is terrible. EVERY TIME you open the app you are required to have internet connectivity. This means you have to disconnect from the console, open up local Wi-Fi, start the app, switch back to the console WAP and then connect the app to your system. If you accidently close the app in this process you have to start all over again. This needs to be fixed. If that issue were gone this would be a 5 star app.

    It seems like every time I try to use the app, it resets me to free mode, with no functionality. I have to disconnect from my console, connect to a network, restart the app to get activated on full mode, them reconnect to my console. I've been using OSC RFR app more frequently because of this glitch.

  17. Michael Kew-avatar

    Michael Kew


    Good clean update, but certain buttons have now been moved annoyingly out of reach for quick operation. The reversion to free version is too frequent too - this app is designed for an environment where it is likely to be offline for long periods - authenticate once a week at the very most

    We waited a LONG time, but it was worth it! Haven't put it through its full paces, but awesome so far! Flexi for Direct Selects is a winner!

    Does, as advertised, everything the RFR does and more, and much more reliable and faster than the RFR, but for one thing. In channel check, I'm tapping the Next button dozens of times in a row, but looking at the stage, not the phone, so my thumb can drift off the Next button on the screen. Could the app take over the volume up/down buttons and interpret them as Next/Prev, similar to the thumbwheel on the RFR?

    Robert Krause


    I'm still waiting on the update that fixes crash on launch. -----OS updated the other day, aRFR crashes upon opening. Says error report is generating, but no dialog I'd opened after & I'm dumped back to the desktop. I'm already annoyed that I paid $50 for a minimal app that isn't being developed further, now it doesn't even start.

    Just spent a day focusing lights with this thing. For an old designer who started out on resistor plates it is amazing. Had a few difficulties with the wi-fi but managed to solve them without having to find a junior high kid. Big thank you to the developers both for the software and the donation idea.

    This tool is amazing. I am not the board op, but as the gaffer it's comforting to know that I can do the simple things if my board op is 10-1 or at crafty or setting up another stage.

  36. Dustin-avatar



    I already paid for the iOS version, I know its charitable but I really don't want to pay for it twice. That complaint aside, the app is great. I use it on my Android to run the ION and GIO.

    Great app with some issues. Needs an update for the tablet version so the functionality matches the IPad version. Will give 5 stars then. Remember the 50 bucks goes to charity that you yourself might be in need of someday.

    When I go to buy the full app it says that it is using the wrong payment version and crashes out. ETC can you please fix this ASAP

  40. Jeremy Ellwood-avatar

    You can set up the board, but you can't actually connect to it unless you buy the premium version of the app. It's labeled as a "Test Period", but it's actually impossible to test it if you can't connect to the board. No way am I going to pay $50 for an app if I can't try it first. This is a complete waste of space... don't bother downloading it unless you're planning on buying it immediately. ETC should be ashamed of themselves for misleading potential customers.

    I am very glad this has come out been looking forward to this for a long time. Although it times out every 10 minutes and wants you to update it to the full version every time very good app. Very easy to set up and use. A little gleatchy on the RFR the top flashes a bit.

    Amazing app been waiting forever for this app on android. Although it times out and you have to uninstall every like 5 days and reinstall it. What it does need is focus pallets on it instead of manual focusing each light.

    I use this to control our ion system on a national tour, and have been very pleased. Another reason to stick with ETC products. Read the notices. The free version is a limited trial. If you're trying to circumvent the payment (to charity), maybe you should reconsider your financial priorities in life. This is a powerful tool, not an ad-supported game.

    I downloaded the app today to get a feel for how the app worked while focusing, little did I know that the app would not connect to the board unless I paid for it. I'm not about to pay $50 for an app that I'm not even sure works in my space.
