Reviews From google play store

It didn't work for my TV. Some buttons worked some of them didn't work. I had to Uninstall the app from my phone.

I have just tested on my old Samsung tv from my Galaxy S4 Mini phone, works 100 % Now i don't need to buy batteries for my remote any more. Superb!! 10 stars for this App! Ads alson not annoying at all. Great work dev's!!

Simple and practical! if you are licky and have your tv/devices in the list, you can enjoy a simple infrared remote! I tried many others, but none of them convinced me as this one. I have this app for about four years! :D Although has limited functions and keys, all available options are working absolutely fine! l hope the developer can add some more keys to it.

Proper Remote control! Push buttons and it transmits corresponding IR. No wifi, EPG, scheduling, favorite channels nonsense. Keypad a bit non responsive though. Can't work out how to pay to remove adverts

This is app is so fast and efficient. Works on my old Philips tv (prior to 2014), even from afar and with just quick taps. Thank you

No support for any AV receivers or Hi-Fi

This app just made my life easier.. My lg magic remote stopped working and all other remotes available were wifi based, this is the only functional remote available

It is perfect if you buy an external ir blaster it is perfect for all tvs

simple as it should be . on off input volume, lots of other garbage apps out there

Didn't work. Had limited TV model options and mine wasn't one of them.
