requires following permissions on your android device.

approximate location (network-based)
Allows the app to get your approximate location. This location is derived by location services using network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi. These location services must be turned on and available to your device for the app to use them. Apps may use this to determine approximately where you are.

view network connections
Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.

view Wi-Fi connections
Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.

connect and disconnect from Wi-Fi
Allows the app to connect to and disconnect from Wi-Fi access points and to make changes to device configuration for Wi-Fi networks.

Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.

full network access
Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.

read phone state
Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.

run at startup
Allows the app to have itself started as soon as the system has finished booting. This can make it take longer to start the phone and allow the app to slow down the overall phone by always running.

draw over other apps
Allows the app to draw on top of other applications or parts of the user interface. They may interfere with your use of the interface in any application, or change what you think you are seeing in other applications.

prevent phone from sleeping
Allows the app to prevent the phone from going to sleep.

receive data from Internet
Allows apps to accept cloud to device messages sent by the app's service. Using this service will incur data usage. Malicious apps could cause excess data usage.

    the most basic functions you can imagine,and ads to boot.i've had this app preloaded on my last 3 or 4 phones. channel guide,menu,power,volume&channel up/ can program more than one room(genie) tho which is a plus. handy enough when you lost the satellite remote,but it's been crashing repeatedly.43 in the last 3 days.this has been an ongoing issue for months.between DirecTV and at&t you would think they could get a working remote app together.btw. the dev website server is not found 😂

    While I know how to change notification settings on my phone, this software (which can not be uninstalled from my LG G6 even though I am not a DIRECTV subscriber) should get some sort of update which stops it from constantly attempting to pop up a "searching for receiver" alert.

  3. guest-avatar

    Very effective, works well every time. I only wish there was a volume control, I would pay for that setting.

  4. guest-avatar

    Does not work at all. Followed instructions, including configuring the server to allow external devices and no luck. Connects to the server but doesn't control anything.

  5. guest-avatar

    I would be happy to give more than 1 star if I could get the app to run. As soon as I added my receiver, it crashed and won't reopen.

  6. guest-avatar

    App tells me the remote is in the notification drawer, but that is not the case. Totally useless! Uninstalling.

  7. guest-avatar

    App wouldn't stay open. I tried resetting my phone and uninstalling and reinstalling and still it wouldn't work. Useless app.

    Works good. Does not have a volume button though 😔

  12. guest-avatar

    A volume button would be nice. Just installed 10 minutes ago. Will update review in a few days

  13. guest-avatar

    Does not find my ip address. This is bullcrap. Offer an app on phone that dont even locate my device

  14. guest-avatar

    I can charge the battery in my phone. Have to buy new ones for the remote.

  15. guest-avatar
