This remote control app allows you to control your Vizio SmartCast TV over the local network or any Vizio TV on phones with infrared port.

★ Network IP control (WiFi / WiFi Direct / LAN)
Network IP control works with Vizio SmartCast TVs manufactured 2016 and later!
- Make sure the TV that you want to pair is turned [On]
- Make sure your phone and TV are connected to the same home network. If your router supports a privacy separator function, make sure it is disabled.

Supported mobile devices: all phones and tablets with WiFi.

★ Infrared (IR) interface
- Your TV and phone/tablet must have infrared interface! 
- Point your phone’s IR blaster directly at the TV like with the original infrared remote. Usual working range is 3 - 15ft (line of sight).
- With some phones in power saving mode or with almost empty battery the IR signal is very weak and range is less then 5ft.

All functions should work with the latest (2015) models. If you have 10 year old TV model which does not have internet connection, then of course some internet related (apps) buttons does not work, but all common functions will still work.

Supported devices with IR blaster running on Android KitKat or newer like Galaxy series S4, S5, S6, S6 Edge, Note, Tab, Mega, HTC One series incl. M7/M8/M9, LG G5, G3 Stylus, Xiaomi Mi and Note series, Huawei Honor, Mate and P series, TCT / Alcatel I221 and some Lonovo tablets with IR interface.

Reviews From google play store

Honestly this app is really good. I was completely pissed off tonight when my remote decided to just stop working but I went on the app store and notice this app. I read some reviews got some goods and bad so I decided to just try it, it saved my life tonight since I didnt have the time to go buy a new one. Well worth getting if you need it right at the moment. I did notice it lags a little some times but nothing terrible. Worth having as back up saved my ass tonight. P.S I'm a huge gamer lol.

Hangs "Connecting..." after switching back from another app, requires clear & reload. Input button HDMI/comp pop-up window makes selection difficult (prefer input named select). Love the full typing keyboard available for text input at will.

So far i am impressed. The Vizio app wanted access to EVERYthing and my phone doesn't have enough memory to install it. This one uses less storage and needs less permissions, and it even looks like the Vizio remote, minus the app buttons which nobody uses anyway.

I lost my remote and this has been a total life saver!!! Tip: Sometimes my TV disconnects from the wifi resulting in the remote not connecting to the TV. All you have to do is unplug the TV and it automatically connects back to the internet.

This app was working great until all of a sudden the arrows and select button dont work on my home screen or in apps like hulu, netflix etc...they still work on my menu screen though....please help..

Works awesome with my TV. Just wish I could control more than one TV as I have more vizio televisions. Also I just lowered my rating as I have to sit through ads to use the remote with no option to purchase an ad free version

Well the buttons are delayed so if I touch volume up I have to wait for a response and if I hit it several times it's like 20 seconds behind but other than that I can't complain and no ads make it worth works great would give 5 stars if not such a delay in response

Good app, does what I needed it too (change to HDMI for my laptop when my kids lose the remote), it does good volume control and you have to click like 50 times before an ad pops up, the last remote I had was like every 10 touches. The only drawback is I dont think I can go to apps on this remote. But, when I saw the crappy comments people made (because of their phone-not this app) I wanted to review it because that's bs. It isnt developers fault.

Not working for my Vizio E32-C1. The app continues searching even after the device is found; trying to cancel the search results in the search starting again. Most aggravating.

Takes forever to connect and has to do so every single time you open the app! Useless!
