Google Play Reviews

  1. Akhanu Husky-avatar

    Great app, even works with Samsung smart touch smart tv's. Easy to set up and understand without instructions, and can be programmed to any command by learning from a remote that already works with it, or from the oem remote. Low reviews are either tech illiterate, non users of the app or otherwise unable to use, like, or understand user friendly software.

  2. Viraj Noorithaya-avatar

    Viraj Noorithaya


    apk If you want people to click your ads at least provide some functionality. All I get are repeated ads and a useless vibration feedback that seems to think it's worked fine. There are no error messages or instructions of any kind. I seriously think that this is a dumb app with buttons and dummy options so that they can display ads. How the hell did you even get a score of 4.2?

  3. Dave Vids-avatar

    on phone Suckd First thing it wants is a review, right after you download the app. It has no instructions. It doesn't have most TV types. I have a Vision, which is a popular brand, and I doesn't even have Visio's as an option. Plus adds pop up and block your screen.

  4. Valerio Morelli-avatar

    Valerio Morelli


    vizio 0 stars would be appropriate. Not only it didn't work, but ads randomly pop up, so if you are not looking and think you are going to change the channel, you are actually opening up the ad. How cleaver. Uninstalled in less than a minute!

  5. A Google user-avatar

    samsung This was very frustrating! There were 9 different pins to try. I tried them all twice and every time I went to enter a new pin and ad window would pop up. None of the pins worked for my LG and it's only a few years old.

  6. Kenneth Mauldin-avatar

    Kenneth Mauldin


    s When you use a remote control for a tv, you don't accidentally open a pop-up as your are turning the volume up or down one notch. This app pops an ad up every time you push a button or change screens. This means if you want to change the volume from 15 to 25 on your tv, you will have to fight through 10 pop-ups. There are plenty of other apps that do not have any advertising during remote control use. Stupid senseless app. I'm surprised it got over 10 million downloads... failure.

  7. Diane DeHart-avatar

    box Don't bother. Downloaded way too fast with zero instructions. despite "setting up" this doesn't do anything but shows you ads and ask for 5 star ratings. Have no idea why it has so many downloads.

  8. Trenton Williams-avatar

    Trenton Williams


    lg It doesn't even work horrible connection who ever reads this don't download wast of time and when I pressed the botten to download it it downloaded right away that's how u know it sucks but when it takes like 2 or 5 min. To download its good and it will work good don't download👎 peace✌

  9. Nathan Fillbrandt-avatar

    Nathan Fillbrandt


    app download This app should be called useless ad at every click. Had 6 pop up ads withing 4 minutes of use Downloaded for Vizio tv didn't see the codes. Promptly uninstalled

  10. Mike Kemp-avatar

    online Who actually gave this crap more than one star!? There was absolutely no thought put into this app, and you want everyone to upgrade? To what, an upgraded crap app that doesn't work? Waist of time and data, DON'T DOWNLOAD

  11. Just Crystal-avatar

    Installed and before I open wants rating I'm not ready to give so I skip it but before I could open settings to see how it worked already had 2 covering ads.. THEIR app isn't for anything but money ads!!! Uninstalling in less than 5 minutes after downloading.. nothing against the company this app is THAT horrible!

  12. Jeff Coco-avatar

    No instructions. Does not work at all with my Panasonic Smart TV. As far as I know my regular remote control does need wifi to connect to tv. Waste of time. I'm deleting ASAP

  13. Brianna Matthews-avatar

    Brianna Matthews


    In the description it says that it supports Vizio, but when I went into the app to choose my TV model, Vizio wasn't even an option. Get your act together and maybe your app will get better reviews. Also, ads every time I press a button is unnecessary and annoying

  14. Dark Lord-avatar

    It's doesn't work, major add platform.... I wouldn't mind add if it worked. My dog can create a better app. Useless app ever. At least have the audacity to create something that half works or spend more time upgrading and fixing it... Waste of time. DON'T NOT DOWNLOAD

  15. Amber Smith-avatar

    It claims all vizio tvs work with it. It didn't have a single vizio TV listed! Lame, and no instructions. I love that it says if we don't have your TV don't get frustrated. Really, but you want 5* as soon as I open the app.

  16. Padraig Clark-avatar

    Didn't have my TV listed as a supported model. You may have asked previously, "How many ads are too many?" Install this app and you will find out.

  17. Emma Sampson-avatar

    Don't waste your time.. Listen to the posts it don't work. I even manually entered info for ip address and WiFi nothing just a space user. Who ever did this needs to take it down and redo it

  18. C Ball-avatar

    Didn't work with my tv. Several pointless buttons poor settings menu or options. No learn capabilities. Maybe good for grandma? Annoying Adds aren't worth basic functions.

  19. A Google user-avatar

    I installed this app hoping to control the TV. Seriously, all the buttons are shown in the screenshot. That's it! No numbers, no arrows, no instructions, no nothing. Besides having a nice shell of an interface, you get nothing else. Disappointed.

  20. Joe Degnan-avatar

    This app first off asked me to rate it 5 stars? It won't even tell me how to set it up AWFUL! HORRIBLE! WASTE OF TIME!

  21. Billy Swinney-avatar

    Is it not false advertisement for a company to say something that's a lie? I hate apps that don't do what they say... Vizio is not on the list of tvs yet it's in the description.... K thanks delete

  22. Bender Rodriguez-avatar

    Bender Rodriguez


    Lame. Maybe even Hella lame. Doesn't matter now. Found the real remote after trying this. So i guess in that regard it did help?

  23. Enzo C.-avatar

    Terrible app that does nothing, has almost no TV models and pop up ads are everywhere! Don't waste your time with this

  24. Rachelle Wagoner-avatar

    Rachelle Wagoner


    Can't even set up the app before they want you to give it 5 stars. So full of pop up ads I gave up before I got it set up to my TV

  25. Alishba Raza-avatar

    If only i could give this a ziro star it dosent work and wouldn't turn on, these comments above and below me are right, dont wast your time :P

  26. Brandy Boyd-avatar

    I downloaded this because it said it was compatible with Vizio brand televisions. Once downloaded I found that Vizio isn't even an available option! What a piece of crap...

  27. Bruce -Willis2002-avatar

    Bruce -Willis2002


    Right when I got i was like okay, I went into my setting and did what I had to do and I realized that this app sucks. Its a waist of space on your phone and effort. Don't get it I'm helping u out here

  28. Jared Law-avatar

    The ridiculous amount of ads & the fullscreen popups weren't only unacceptable, they were reprehensible. But that's not the worst part. My Samsung TV simply did not work with this app. If these clowns can't get such a simple app with so much competition to work on one of the largest electronics manufacturers' offerings, they're incompetent, and the ad spamming is downright insulting. 0 stars.

  29. Ivan Alexander-avatar

    No instructions, too many adds, didn't work on my Toshiba.. Need I say more? Oh yes.. Lots.. but not wasting anymore of my time with this..

  30. Rich Carter-avatar

    This app is full of adverts plus it wants a 5 star review on start up. App will be deleted before I even use it as its that annoying

  31. M Askar-avatar

    Another failing that does not work with my emerson tv. This app is loaded with as that makes it difficult to use it. Good luck making money out of this

  32. Randal Legendre-avatar

    Randal Legendre


    You obviously don't have that problem when you can't see the buttons on the remote when it's dark in a room lol. Also has a wide variety of devices you can choose from. You can save maybe like 5 or 6 different at a time and use just your phone for every TV in your house without having to scan the codes with is great. Also searching for the TV code takes no time at all. Might have to try it once or twice but you'll eventually stumble across the code.

  33. Krittin Kalra-avatar

    I tried it on a BRAVIA, but it did not work. Instead it kept annoying me with those banner ads. Waste of time.

  34. Dima Shivrin-avatar

    This app doesn't work. Thats all, not on any tv I have home, it has no Instructions ir anythink that you can do to make it work.

  35. Ricardo Frías-avatar

    At the beginning they have a big green button to give them 5 stars, fake rate. The most important, the application don't work. It has a lot of ads.

  36. Mark Terrence Enanoria-avatar

    Mark Terrence Enanoria


    Some of the people who installs this app are confused because they don't know if it is working, it is all because it has no specific instructions or easy steps on how to use it! Please don't confuse people and fix this BIG PROBLEM of this! I really wonder why my big brother uses this and actually works,!? But not on me

  37. Arnold Kashembe-avatar

    Arnold Kashembe


    Horrible what kind of app wants 5 starts right after you download it second of all no instructions?no tips? Don't waste your time and storage on this app!! RIP Off!!

  38. Daniel Lee-avatar

    By the way, it's sneaky to ask to give 5 stars in the first page. The rating for app misty be quite skewed.

  39. Mitra M-avatar

    Everytime you would touch this app there will be a pop up adv. I am a fairly tech savvy person. This so called remote does not work with any of the Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and RCA TV I have. Additionally, why does it require history, media (photo etc.) and call information? Uninstalled this crap. Google should maintain a minimum quality before they allows these time waster.

  40. jamie Nichols-avatar

    Totally inept tv list. Couldn't go through 2 selections without getting blasted with ads. Dont waste your time. Uninstalling.

  41. Laysha Garcia-avatar

    It does not even work it is so stupid. It really suckes do not get it i tride it and it didn't. Even work do not get it please thanks bye😘😘😺😸😽💫💛

  42. CM Verdillo-avatar

    Can't believe this thing works. :D Turning off every TV in the mall is doomed! :)))) More tv please. Devant, skyworth, TLC. 🙏👍👍

  43. Davinci Rod-avatar

    So.... I got this new app. Fricken sweet bro.. always losing my remote but never losing my android. Btw.......

  44. Thomas Holmes-avatar

    It works but there are way too many ads, every time you jump to a new page you get an ad. Good luck

  45. Charlie DeLong-avatar

    Terrible app. It looks like a remote but doesn't do anything. Don't waste your time downloading

  46. snow_y-avatar

    You can't go on there once without being bombarded with ads. And when you first download it it asks for a review plus it doesn't even work on your TV .Don't waste your time downloadg this app

  47. Daniel smith-avatar

    This App is a swizz, it honestly doesnt work with no instructions on how to set it up. That have the audacity to give you a pop-up asking you to rate it 5 stars! No Chance! Not even worth one.

  48. Jerekan-avatar

    Doesn't have vizio, adds, adds, adds oh and more adds before you can even start to setup the app. Oh and if you want to exit, 3 more adds pop up. GARBAGE!

  49. Maha Crossler-avatar

    Pop up ads cover the whole screen some times 3 in a row piping up. Supports like 10 major TV brands if you have something uncommon good luck.

  50. Robyn Billings-avatar

    So crap doesn't work. The 5 star rating is a lie because before u can use the remote a message says rate me 5 star as the person knows this app is a con and a lie

  51. Shuwana Lynch-avatar

    I liked it. I did a prank on my little brother of turning off the television. He was so mad he almost jumped me but I f+++ed him up

  52. DachiiXO-avatar

    I have no idea how this thing works. This is not an app its spam. No instructions whatsoever.

  53. Natalie Mccubbing-avatar

    Tried it and never worked.I kept on trying and it still didn't work. Also it asks u to rate it when u just get the game

  54. Antonio Santana-avatar

    Antonio Santana


    As like all reviewers here, this is abysmal. Had a simple premise and failed to deliver. Prompts for a review as soon as you access the app. Look elsewhere

  55. Teejay Velasco-avatar

    AV-21SX17 Is our tv and it doesnt work. How will i know the ip code

  56. john furman-avatar

    Vizio not on the list which is the opposite of description. Also an ad click nightmare on a remote? Seriously? Don't waste your time.

  57. Tyra Reser-avatar

    I don't know my TV crap except that it says Vizio. It should connect automatically

  58. Fam Ekladious-avatar

    Thought that all the one star reviews couldn't possibly be founded considering 10 million+ downloads and 4 star overall. Now, after using the app, I can't believe that the downloads and rating is founded. Really a horrible app with no instructions at all, and even then I'm sure it doesn't function. It's constant ad bombardment and pleas for ratings. Plea accepted. Here's your rating.

  59. Tamika Staten-avatar

    Doesnt work, no option to scan for tv's, the only thing the buttons do when you click them is vibrate, wayyyyy wayyyyy wayyyyy tooooo many ads! There's an ad that pops up every 5 seconds. When you try to exit, they offer you other ap downloads. Plus, as soon as you download this app, they ask for a 5 star review.... Not gon happen..... 4 minutes of my life that ill never get back. Thanks a lot.

  60. Just Fatal-avatar

    This app is great, the people who say that it doesnt come with instructions, it does!! How about, you move your finger to the "read more" button, smh. And please update it for the EMERSON tv please

  61. Richard-avatar

    Didn't have my tv Soniq E40W13A-NZ or anything from Soniq so the app was useless to me but also has way too much advertising I had about 4 adds pop up in less than a minute.. I understand that this app is add supported but that amount of adds is way more than normal. Should be 1 add to every 10 - 30 minutes max.. that would be standard

  62. Bart Stoltenberg-avatar

    Bart Stoltenberg


    So cool I feal like I going to burst (lol just kidding) but my friend he is just relaxing and all the sudden the Channel changes and he's wondering what the hell happened and when I get home on the way I'm laughing my head off I will tell him eventually but not until he asks he's been asking his mother what the crap happened to the tv. It is so good to trick someone at some times but also its good when I can't find the ****** remote to my tv.

  63. mohith bava-avatar

    This app sucks , pls dont waste ur time un these kinf og apps

  64. Monet Mitchell-avatar

    I am so glad you guys made this 😃 When my brother watches TV I always change the channel, and it's so funny to see him confused. Keep up the good work.

    Selyna Rosenberg


    I don't see anything that would allow me to search for or suggest adding my tv? Would love for it to work if my TV could be added & if it does, I'll update my review.

  69. Andrew Gordon-avatar

    How can it ask me to give 5 stars before I even use it? I read the reviews and down loaded it just to rate it then I am uninstalling it. If it was any good I don't think they would ask you to rate it before you use it I have LG g3 n it comes with quick remote all ready installed and it workes great its never asked me to give it 5 stars that says confidence to me!!!!

  70. Kb-avatar

    I have no idea how it has so many 5 star ratings, this app is a complete waste of time. It doesn't work at all and there is no instructions, it asks for an IP address and idk what kind of TV has a built in router.

  71. Taw J M-avatar

    I try putting up the volume but it dosent work. Thanks for the waste rubbish SydneyApps!

  72. Raul Reza-avatar

    didn't use it two seconds before 15 ads popped up! immediate uninstall!

  73. Jason Stake-avatar

    Prompted 5 stars don't quite know if it's worth it yet. NO VIZIO LOTS OF AD"S UNINSTSLED QUICKLY.

  74. Faraz Arshad-avatar

    This app didn't work even i tried several times don't waste your time by downloading this app look for another one in the play store

  75. Daniel Gold-avatar

    The first thing this app does is give you a pop up asking for four stars. When you exit the app it stops you from exiting to give you an add. It also did not support the two brands of TV i have.

  76. Merlin Kirkpatrick-avatar

    Merlin Kirkpatrick


    They have posted this app over and over with different faces. It is covered with ads and is very annoying.

  77. Nessa Glez-avatar

    DOESNT WORK, doesnt support many tvs . It says supports vizio but doesnt. Lots of pop ups when your trying to do something else

  78. Abhishek Samal-avatar

    Full of ads. No instructions. Even after setting up, does not work. No customer support. Waste of time.

  79. Mike Vance-avatar

    App works.. Not that hard to figure out how to use if you're smartphone savvy.. They just need to make it useable for more models.

  80. Andrew McCabe-avatar

    I saw a friend prank the owners of a Mexican grill so I thought I would try it but to my surprise they dint have the vizio. Not a bad app.

  81. Jasmine Finch-avatar

    It doesn't even work you say you fixed but it still dont work. Yall some liein mother jive turkeys good day sir.

  82. Umar Shah-avatar

    Right from the start it was glitchy,out dated and full of spam. Would not recommend to anyone at all.

  83. Patricia Feehan-avatar

    Patricia Feehan


    The ads upon launch and exit kill any desire to try if it even works. It also did not list coby the manufacturer of my tv. I could not suffer the ads to see if i could search for the codes.

  84. Ashley Holt-avatar

    There was no directions for set up and did not work even after I choose the TV model

  85. Vasan Anagha-avatar

    This app sucks this is worthless don waste your time by downloading this worthless app i gave one star because i was not able to give less than that useless and no words to scold this app and not only this these type of apps are all useless

  86. Eduardo Garcia-avatar

    Didn't work for me on an LG tv when selecting IR port or Blaster. And it's loaded with Ads. First thing App did upon very first opening was ask for 5 stars. Probably why it's so high a rating.

  87. Jeff Pritchett-avatar

    This piece of garbage doesn't work. Don't even waste your time

    Only has one Panasonic profile that doesn't work at all with my Panasonic TV. Ads pop up every few seconds. This is just terrible, greedy design. SydneyApps, please quit.

    This app dosen,t even work i tryed like 1000 but it did not work

  91. D Martindale-avatar

    No instructions, crappy support, doesn't work. Only reason it has so many five star ratings is that it asks you to rate it before you try it.

  92. Mumtaz Aleem-avatar

    This app is a waste of bandwidth and storage space, simply doesn't work. I had to switch Peel and it works Check other reviews their is a pattern / tried this app doesn't work

  93. Peter Reynolds-avatar

    No tv listings for insignia. Ads pop up on settings menu. It also has a pop up to ask for 5 star ratings. Please use the app before rating it.

  94. Elle Daniels-avatar

    I don't know haven't used app yet.

  95. Laura Menchaca-avatar

    Well I haven't used it yet but I have one on my other phone that works well so since you told me to give you 5 stars here they are. Lol nah not really I'm sure it will work fine. If it doesn't I'll take back my stars lol

  96. Vince Savoldi-avatar

    I didn't get to test it with the TV because I have a (not smart) Vizio TV. There is no selection in the IR models area for Vizio. Also noteworthy it only works in portrait mode, so if your IR port is on the side of your device you have to use the remote sideways. 2 stars for the clean interface. More if it can be made to work.

  99. Juslyn Freeman-avatar

    This app does not give you any instructions what so ever.TEREIBBBBLE app. Do not even waste your time downloading it.I thought it would be good so if I lose the remote I can use my phone but it's horrible. It says to rate the app right when your download it. Try it out if you want but I hated it

  100. Paola Blondet-avatar

    Neither after following the directions. What's this? Can the developer(s) tell me how can I let it work?? Thanks
