    This app is so awesome and useful it almost defies description. With it I finally have a phone app that I can control a music player with at home into which I've integrated MusicIP mix technology and and it's beautiful and sweet. Still there are a few things that separate this app at present from perfection: 1) If I search my library for music to play, and then play a song and build a mix, and go to the remote control, then come back to search, the library search is reset. Aaargh. This lack of memory is the greatest frustration that has me trying other Kodi remote apps out. I spend ages homing in on an album I want to sample I try a song, and come back and I have to start again .. 2) It lacks any clear means of rating music that's playing. I want to be able to rate a song I hear say 1-5 stars and then be able to find songs by rating. TO be honest I haven't even worked out how to coax that out of Kodi yet let alone Kore. But man if Kore had this it would be another step toward perfection. 3) Lack of a Lyrics display. Kodi has a Lyric add on that display a best effort at lyrics of a playing song. It is pretty cool. Shazam can do same for me and technically I can shazam the danged song that's playing but wow, is that a round about way of doing things. Basically if there were an option to display lyrics in Kore, yet again one step closer to perfection! These three things would move me to a 5+* rating for the app, unable to sing its praises far and wide enough. As it is its' rocking awesome but has these little frustrations at the cusp of what it might offer.

    apk Congratulation! You broke kore with this v2.5. now i have 2 icons to choose in share page (1.play on kodi 2.queue on kodi.) The prev version was simpler with only 1 icon. Now the 'play on kodi' icon displaced running video and the 'queue on kodi' sometimes doesnt queue the video at all to play.. bring back the old feature.

    kore remote for kodi Even with Kodi settings set to allow remote control devices on the network, it won't find my Kodi media centre :(

    Helps me get to the shows I want to watch easily 😁

  14. Lord Death-avatar

    Lord Death


    Always loved this one, makes browsing through menus while keeping the video full screen possible, and being able to have multiple kodi devices linked up means I don't have to keep track of different remotes. One thing though is that I can never get it to automatically link, always have to setup manual, really the only thing I take issue with

  15. Paul Shirley-avatar

    Paul Shirley


    When it works it works well. Basic but usable. When it forgets how to connect with my Kodi box, about every other time I use it, there's no obvious way to connect it and I have to clear the apps data in system settings to trigger the connect process. The usual level of incomplete thinking I'm used to in Kodi applied to Kore. At least they're consistently bad at usability ☹️

  16. tim mcghee-avatar

    tim mcghee


    Basic simple application that does what it says. Absolutely Love it. All the other similar apps. Make it all complicated (unnecessarily), this one, does it all for you, and works wonderfully. Thank you for developing this app. Awesome!

  17. retro resolution-avatar

    retro resolution


    Unusable with large music collections. Untested with video collections. After selecting an Artist, retrieving an album or song list results in an infinitely prolonged 'busy' icon being displayed. On the host, a Vero4K runing native OSMC, everything is instantaneous.

  18. Morten V-avatar

    Morten V


    It's one thing that makes this a no no for me. The power button and no options for it. In all logical sense there should have been no destructive options on that button by default. Meaning quit Kodi and minimize Kodi is non destructive. If you needed the other options you should be able to enable these individually from within a menu.

    Perfect for that lazy stretch out on settee. Only problem is connecting to fridge and hoover when a cool beer is needed.

    Really awesome frontend to one for multiple KODI servers. Gives access to almost all features of the backend. Nice gimmicks such as volume control via the phone's buttons. BTW, I really don't understand why some people write angry reviews and give only one star, when they only miss a single feature in the app (which is free and OSS!). Respect to the Kore team for responding to such moronic reviews in a polite manner.

  21. Travis Swaim-avatar

    Travis Swaim


    So I've been using Kore for quite some time. It's been fantastic for everything I've needed it for. The only complaint I have is recently on Android Pie. The audio/subtitle quick button is gone. Where did it go? I used to be able to select and download subtitles as well as adjust subtitle offsets very quickly within Kore. Thanks so much! Edit: Absolutely correct in your answer. After using it more i realized that it does show up eventually and it does seem to be tied to the connection quality.

    All of a sudden the remote stopped working when I go into a different Kodi profile. It used to work fine but now it stays on "connecting"

  23. Marko Todoric-avatar

    Marko Todoric


    Not satisfied. Remote keeps on disconnecting when something is playing on Kodi. Network is highly optimized. On same machine, VLC Player with its remote works extremely well. Don't know why connection keeps dropping on this one. Shame, looks well though. Full of features. Really. I would like to edit, and point out one thing as a response to XBMC. I have three android phones on the network. Of those three, two of them works fine, one that is running android 9 has issues mentioned above.

  24. Andrzej-avatar



    Does not detect Kodi even when configured manually. Other remote app works without issues.

  25. Matt Mckean-avatar

    Matt Mckean


    unable to connect. nothing to do with firewall settings, public/private network conflicts, bonjour is installed and active for zconf, manual connections attempted multiple times, and yet still NOTHING. It sees my computer yet flatly will not connect to it. no password or port issues, no server name issues. SORT IT OUT

  26. Peter Smith-avatar

    Peter Smith


    Very good but lacks basic usability features. Can't add a series to playlist from the TV shows library. Which results in the button for next in playlist not working. Which means having to stop and start between episodes. The only way to solve is to add the season to playlist using the remote but then have to click next a few times if half way in to a season. Would be much better if i did not have to rely on playlist and could just click next file in the folder on the file system instead.

  27. Neil Burton-avatar

    Works well enough, but the iOS version has so many more features and functions that the Android version is lacking.

    So after using this remote all of 3 times I'm very impressed and wish they would extend the capabilities to also include Xbox one functions or make a remote like this for Xbox one.

    Good job on the App... However, and this is in no way meant to be taken offensively ,Yahtzee is all around better as a KODI remote. Just my opinion and intended as an honest critique. Keep up the good work and improvement!

  31. Vadim Shirokiy-avatar

    Vadim Shirokiy


    Slow and glitchy. Example: when I cast a video from YouTube it may take a few minutes before it starts playing and often it plays the wrong video - the one that it played the last time. Yatse works great - fast and no glitches

  32. Harry Jenkins-avatar

    Harry Jenkins


    Great app love it! Especially the pause on phone call. Only have on issue when I have the option to show over screen turned on where you can't go back to the lockscreen because the back button doesn't do anything.

  33. Jymm Verity-avatar

    Jymm Verity


    Simple to set up and use. Integrates with multiple instances of kodi on a network and works beautifully. Allows management of every aspect of your media library and configuration. Excellent work by the developers, my hat comes off to you!

  34. Rae M-avatar

    even with the manual set up it still won't work. I have looked at countless message boards, made sure all the settings were correct, nothing. it has nothing to do with my firewall either bc I went through that. trying to figure this out has been the biggest waste of my time

    * the only problem I'm facing is that the app does not auto connect to Kodi on Android tv once it is paired. i have too delete the connection and add it again only then it works. * if there was an option to search the media of Kodi from Kore then it would be awesome.

    works well on libraelec and netflix. only request i have is to make the up down side buttons bigger.. possibly full screen removing player control at the top .. because while scrolling thru list i VERY OFTEN click on center ok button as my eyes on tv and slight movement of phone and bam movie starts accidentally

    perfectly coded to work alongside your kodi player. it will connect to ANY instance of kodi on your network, weather it is on shield, fire, or even xbox one. go in to your router and figure out what the ip address is, and your good to go.

    Works great. No issues on my S9 when connecting to Kodi on a Raspberry Pi or Kodi on the Xbox One. Only complaint is how small the developers made the volume selector. I would love a widget.

    Lacking video settings configurator directly on the app itself, the only option is to use the arrow keys to change them on Kodi if I wanted to (changing the video proportion on 4:3 titles to 16:9, for example).
