It found my tv and didn’t work. :( This other person here that wrote a review apparently didn’t read the app description that you are not affiliated with Philip.

Horrible remote won’t work on philips 4K
I have a Philips 4K TV. I downloaded this app to use for my tv. Doesn’t work. It will say on the app connected to t.v. It’s sad when a specific app for a product doesn’t work. It’s specifies Philips TVs ??? Man the adds just come and go when you try to do anything as well. In app purchase. Try the free version. Don’t pay for the subscription unless your remote works as described. Now to find a universal remote. Do not recommend this remote

Scam or an app that never worked
If I could give it negative stars I would. App doesn’t move when I try to troubleshoot or look for help if says I need membership, so I make the stupidest decision I’ve ever made, and paid the 2.99. The app still doesn’t move or work, or maybe not for Philips tv ? Idk but please be smart and don’t pay the membership when it doesn’t work.

If you want to waste time this is great.
This app is great for ads. If you thought would control the TV… not even close. If you wanted to watch see ads instead of watching TV than you came to right place. If you wanted a faster way to control the TV instead of looking for the remote, it would probably be faster to order one online than use this to control the TV.

Good luck
In my opinion I wouldn’t waste my time again. Downloaded the app followed all the directions, still nothing. Even went the extra step further to input the IP address myself, still nothing. Complete waste of time you get nothing other than ads when trying to use the remote even when it tells you it’s found your tv and it’s connected. Quite annoying!

DO NOT INSTALL THIS APP!! tried getting this app after losing the remote too many times, looked a bit sketchy but that “eh what the heck” so i install it and it asked to sync through bluetooth which was quick and perfect! After trying multiple times near AND FAR the remote still did not work and stupid ads kept interfering!! IS THIS A FREAKIN VIRUS!!?? DO NOT GET! if i could give zero stars i would.

Don’t waste your time
After waiting for the crazy amount of ads to finish their day in the sun I was finally able to scan for my TV. It said it found my TV. I clicked on it and nothing. So, I went through the whole process again of waiting for the ads and scanning and clicking and once again nothing happened.

Useless ad spamming app
Phillips either get in or get out of the smart TV business. you have other great products, this is one you fall way short on. Tv is good... smart tv is a reach at best. This app finds the TV, you choose it, it looks like it will work, but does nothing other than pop up ads. Have some more respect for your company. Don’t download this app it’s worthless.

This is kind of STEALING
This app just made for stealing from users who downloaded it. This is not working at all but developer earns money by ADS. In fact they are stealing from our packets by pushing ADS when you opened app and trying to connect it. Unfortunately have to tap a star for registering review,otherwise even half star is too much for these thieves. DO NOT DOWNLOAD IT

I’ve tried everything and this app does not work. I’ve only ever owned philips TVs and I’ve been able to get other apps to work but this app does nothing it finds your tv but that’s about it because it doesn’t do anything. Don’t waste your time and this is a real shame considering this is an app made especially for philips TVs.

Was in hospital when free trial ended
Had no access to end before automatically charged, requested a refund considering the situation, but the money was more important. It’s only $5, but after a $3000 hospital bill, it just really stung, especially since I never got the app to do what I had gotten it for.

So I get this app thinking it’ll help me out and actually function... nope! Doesn’t work at all! So I think okay, maybe if I pay for the ad removal it’ll work... nope! To the creators of this app, I want my fracking money back you dirty thieves! If I could have taken stars from you I would have! This app is absolute trash!

The WORST app I’ve ever encountered- EVER
Doesn’t work any better than their TVs. HORRIBLE! So many ads streaming across that it’s ridiculous. The app doesn’t work AT ALL. Not at all. It’s a total waste of time. Wish I could rate it in the negative- because 1 star is 100 times better than the rating it deserves. Don’t waste your time. You’ve been warned:).

This app did nothing but pop up adds when I tried to use it. It never worked with my TV and it was a complete waste of my time. You would think that a company like Phillips would have but more R&D in a product that represents them.

Just unbelievable...
It connected to my Philips tv and is able to control it but EVERY TIME you press a button another add pops up. Every single time. Needless to say I deleted it immediately. I was willing to pay for it but it was so greedy that it was just disgusting.

Philips tv is garbage. I have a brand new Philips 5000 series 4K ULTRA HD TV model#50PLF5603/F7 TV WORKS GREAT, however no apps will work, and the remote that comes with the tv is literally the worst quality remote I’ve ever used. It is so light and very weak. The buttons are so hard to push and it is such a pain to push a button ten times for it to actually work smh

Useless. Trust Me.
I tried the new update and same results. They are just trying to get people to tap ads. Sad. My TV comes up as comparable but still the buttons do nothing. And then on every 6th Tap you get a surprise ad. Don’t waste your time, it's a gimmick. This simply does not work for any TV. Apple, come on. Stop allowing this.

just a bad app
Literally just doesn’t work. Don’t waste your time trying to make it work. It’s not a phone thing or anything like that; multiple people tried where I’m at, didn’t work. Not an old tv either; perfectly up to date. Just a bad app with a load of ads. DO NOT DOWNLOAD

Every time you click a button an ad will pop up. You won’t even be able to close the ads. It’ll automatically take you to safari. Even if you do get past the ads the remote does not and will not work. Please don’t download this bs. You will be disappointed

This app is a waste of time. Every time I pressed a button ads would pop up. It doesn’t actually work for your tv even though it shows as connected. It’s only good for seeing a bunch of ads.

Works well with iPhone 6
Handy to install and set up, your set must be connected to your home network. Works with iPhone 6 but not XR.

Does not work. WASTE OF A DOWNLOAD!
Does not work. Don’t waste your time. It shows the tv but never actually controls it. Ever time you press a button, for example the volume up button 1 time an ad pops up. This happens ever time you press a button and it does not control the tv. WASTE OF A DOWNLOAD!

If I could delete it twice without downloading it again I would. Worse app ever won’t scan for Wi-Fi instead scams you and plays a ad.

Can’t connect to TV
When I search for my TV, it shows up and I click it. Then nothing happens. And it also doesn’t help that this review system does white text on a white background…

It finds the network address of the tv during the scan. The problem is when you try any of the functions it states that there is no network connection.

Too many ads to work
Every time I pressed a control command on the app I got an ad to join Facebook, of which I’m already a member, and the ad look like it was not from Facebook. I deleted the application from my phone it’s a waste of time

Waste of Time
It says that it finds my TV but no matter which button I press it says that it must be connected to WiFi and nothing works. Also even if it did work it pops up an ad every 2 or three clicks. Terrible, do not download!!!

Click bait trash.
App is trash and maybe a scam. Found my smart tv but didn’t work. As you press buttons it randomly throws up full screen ads so if you continue to press the screen you click through to an ad. 🙄

Doesn’t work
I read the review and I must agree it doesn’t work. When I push certain buttons nothing happens but on the enter, etc it goes straight to an ad. This is really to bad because I would love to use my phone.

Does not work with my TV
I have a Phillips Roku TV & neither app works. Nor does SamRemote although no surprise. As info, the SamRemote does work fairly well with my Samsung TV. Just wish it would remember the set & not scan for new connection every time the set is powered/app is launched.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS APP!!! Apple should be ashamed of themselves for allowing these remote app scams. That is exactly what they are - A SCAM!!! They scam you with the ease of use, they scam you with their adds, and almost 99% of the time you can’t even get a connect to the actual TV!!! Then they try and through an alternate app for free. WHICH IT IS NOT FREE!!!! SCAM, SCAM, SCAM, SCAM......!!!!!!!!
