Free version seems bad from the reviews, but the paid version is great.
From reading the other reviews and not having the free version for years, it seems like its alot worse than I remember, with the ads. But the paid version is very convinent (if you have a roku) Its so much easier to control the roku than other roku remote apps than i know, because the buttons are big. If you have a roku, it also connects to the same tv everytime you open the app, which is usually what I do, you can always disconnect from the tv and connect to another one though if you dont want to connect to the tv. Should use less ads if you want the ratings to go up.

Day Two. Total Garbage. Do not buy.
App decided to ask for the TV pin again. Box will not display long enough to enter pin. Will attempt reinstalling the app. Will not be coming back to say if this fixed the problem. Assume 16 dollars down the drain. App support claims website not around anymore to contact dev. Assume devs still get 16 dollars while they speed through costs rica on a speedboat laughing at idiots who get brow beat into giving money to avoid CONSTANT barrage of ads that won’t even let you adjust the backlight without four pop ups. The disappearing box (after purchase is the last straw). I could have bought the actual remote for 16 dollars. Garbage codes as garbage does. Buyer beware. And here’s the reinstall info: has no idea I spent the 16 dollars for as free experience. This app is a scam. Do not pass go. Do no collect working remote. If the coders can be found in their villainous layer somewhere on the run, don’t take water if they offer it, don’t stay the night. Revert to childish pranks and burn feces on their front door. You will never get 16 dollars back. Will not be adjusting TV settings with ad version of app when it shouldn’t be required. Want to cuss so badly. Want to describe buckles of brown explosions all over faces. Want to cast four letter words used to describe the act of fornication so badly. Features review of app claims no problems. Will seek reporting these clowns some how. Even possible? Want to break things. Punch knuckles. Grrr.

If you’re using the free version, get ready to be manipulated and terrorized into buying it.
There are so many ads. You get about five clicks on the controller before an ad pops up sometimes less, so just the simple act of looking down at your phone and looking up at the TV and then looking down at your phone and then looking up at the TV hundreds of times just to get one show started will make you want to buy the full version, this kind of advertising drives me crazy and makes me not want to buy it, I won’t be buying it just because of this dirty advertising technique. Another bit of skulduggery is that to close an ad you have to press the little X in a circle which is located right where the off button for your TV on the controller is also so if you get too frustrated you’ll probably just turn your whole TV off and then have to start from scratch which will also make you want to purchase the full version. All of this is planned no doubt. It is a good product but this type of slimy, sneaky, manipulative advertising structure turns me off from the company completely. How about just adding more interesting content and various functions for a full version price instead of making the free version the most annoying thing that has ever existed on this planet or any other planet in the history of the universe

My review one this app
Well I could say one thing I wish the controls would download one time and make it so u don’t have to keep downloading it every time u wanna look at different stuff in the app I wish I could just open it up and it be there every time because I know my mom witch is of the older generation would keep asking me how do I get back to the remote if she hit another button I like the app but the controls need to b there every time u open the app like have the main screen be ur remote other than that I like how u can buy a new one on this app and I like how it controls ur tv within seconds I just wish the main screen was your remote without having to download it and I hate how I gotta buy an add free remote for 5.99 my original remote doesn’t make me buy add free that’s just stupid how adds are in a remote just because it’s on my cellphone good thing I just wanted to try this app and actually have my remote otherwise I would have to turn off my volume when it’s late at night trying to control my volume. Thanks girls and guys for making this app if u fixed those two things u would have a 5 star rating.

Could we get more ads please?
Literally an (insert ad here) ad pops up just about every (insert ad here) 3 seconds or two clicks (insert ad here) on this remote. So be (insert ad here) cautious if lowering the (insert ad here) volume. If you turn the tv off (insert ad here), you have to rescan for the tv (insert ad here). Now at least two different tv (insert ad here) versions pop up for the same tv (insert ad here) upon scanning. Without all the (insert ad here) ads, this (insert ad here) remote works ok however, (insert ad here) it wouldn’t work to (insert ad here) power on (insert ad here) the tv. For the amount (insert ad here) of ads being run (insert ad here) constantly that I’m sure they’re paying (insert ad here) for the space to be run, (insert ad here) there is no reason this (insert ad here) company should be asking (insert ad here) people to pay (insert ad here) to remove the ads. Nothing (insert ad here) but a money (insert ad here) grab app as usual (insert ad here) these days.

Ads ads ads but app works great!
Who enjoys ads popping up right in the middle of hurrying to turn the tv down to not wake the baby? App works great, so kudos on that. Connects really quickly (after the ad of course) to your tv. Works flawlessly after you connect your tv. This is just me at home so I can not speak for any other internet or tv as I have not tried anywhere else.

Microphone Button For An Update For Roku Users
No hate with this app! Don’t get me wrong this is a wonderful alternative for a universal remote built into your phone! But I use Roku and the only thing that this is missing is the microphone button to control the tv with your voice! I just think if they would update this app that would make this app more useful to me because I always use the microphone button on my physical Roku remote! So please if the creator of this app would update this for my inconvenience that would make me happy and give you a five star then the three star that would be wonderful! Thank You For Listening!

My remote broke, and I thought—wouldn’t it be great if my phone could be my TV remote, they should invent that & so I check the Apple store for my million dollar idea and here it is! But in all seriousness it works so well, was a breeeeze to set up (connects to TV through WiFi) ! I ended up paying the 5$ for no ads, since I am using it as my primary remote, but that is still much cheaper then a replacement ! To think every time you’re wondering where the remote is you can now just use your phone !

On and ads
A couple things, 1 ads, they don’t bother me to much but I don’t Wanna pay money for no ads, the reason being I don’t wanna use this all the time because... of problem 2 2 turning on the tv, u can’t do it!!! The reason y I got this app is bc on my smart tv there is NO ON BUTTON so I needed to turn on the tv and so I looked for an app to do it, I got this and the not being able to turn ON THE TV made me mad. Other than that and ads this app is alright. But my question is, y get a remote app when you need the remote or button on the side of the tv, to turn on the tv???? You already have the remote or buttons so y watch a million ads or pay for no ads when you have to do other things to turn in the tv?!?!?!?!

And it worked with my Samsung Tv without problems , Universal Remote also worked with my Roku Tv ! I honestly dont buy right away but for the quality and one time buy its definatly worth the one time purchase to remove ads ! I’m so happy I found this Universal Remote !!!

Meh/ It’s okay
It’s cool for temporary use. I downloaded because I lost my remote and couldn’t adjust the volume . So this app worked well for like the first few days of use. Then the ads got worse the longer you use it . Then all of a sudden it started to get glitchy . Like it would say “ you have to be connected to the same Wi-Fi as the tv “. The weird thing is I was connected to the say Wi-Fi the whole time. Basically if you wanna temp. use , for a few days . Try this app but if not there are many apps to flip flop from. I just deleted this one and went to the next.

Remote does not work unless you pay
I’ve used this app for a while dealing with ads but now they took away the ok or select button on the remote and whenever you press it it tells you to buy the subscription. Are you kidding me! The app is completely unusable without a crazy $5 per month subscription now. I was ok with dealing with the ads but now the remote will not work and forces you to buy it. It’s a shame, this kind of business practice will never get my support. I have been close buying the remote on many occasions now I will never buy it. You people are what is wrong with the world today.

Best Smart TV Remote Available
I have downloaded what feels like a million different remotes for my Samsung SmartTV, and none of them work well. I have, at times, felt like throwing my phone out the window I’m so frustrated. This is the only remote I’ve found that’s consistent and fully featured. So if you’re thinking about trying it you should try it. You won’t be wasting your time, and you won’t want to throw your phone out the window.

Been using this thing for a while now, all of a sudden today it doesnt work, i have both my phone and tv set to the same wifi but when i scan it says it cant find anything, i double checked and disconnected and reconnected wifi and still nothing so it just wont let me connect to the tv even though they are both on the same wifi and in the same room in the same vicinity as the router, i havent changed a single thing on my end so its obviously the app, what a horrible app, dont download this, find another one

Universal Remote
Have you ever lost or put your remote down and then can’t find it? This app works on iPhone and iPad. Looks similar to a remote and is easy to set up. Also with the app you can see it clearly and no additional batteries are needed. If you don’t like the ads on the free version you can remove them, by paying a small amount of $. You won’t be disappointed! Love this app!

How is this an app
I download it and am immediately met with an ad. After I close it, the app tells me to do a “smart scan” to connect to my tv. I click on it, immediately another ad. I hit close on the ad, but it doesn’t register until after several tries. After the ad is closed, no smart scan has been initiated and I have to hit the button again only for the same ad to come up. I’ve tried hitting different keys, but it’s the same pop up asking for a scan that doesn’t work or start. Both my phone and Tv are connected to the same network, but this app can’t even scan.

Annoying if you got the app because you lost or broke your remote
The fact that the tv asks for permission to allow the app to control it is redundant if you don’t have a remote to begin with, but otherwise this app is very useful

Does as it says!
I downloaded this app recently and I’m loving it so far. I paid to get rid of the ads, it was $8, which is a little expensive, but I think if you use this often I think it’s worth the money. Just a little add, I think it would be nice to have the remote layout centered. Otherwise no complaints so far.

Too many pop up ads
I loved when in the day that smartphone’s has the IR blaster. This app has too many pop up advertising. I thought finally found an app the finally allows me to control my tv without a catch. I would pay a fee just to get the ads removed but there’s no option for that. I honestly would find other way

The worst.
I don’t ever ever review apps, but this one is just so bad that I have to review. Yes, the ads are annoying unless you pay to remove them. If you don’t remove them you get maybe 3 clicks before a 5 second ad pops up. That’s not even the worst part. The worst part is that it just DOESN’T WORK. It literally picks and chooses when it does and doesn’t work. Yes, it’s synced to my tv, same wifi connection, etc… Deleting this app because honestly it’s just getting more frustrating. At first it worked almost always. Now it’s just the worst.

Only works maybe 10% of the time
When you open the app you have to enter a pin to connect to the TV, which shouldn’t be a problem, but 90% of the time the window to enter the pin pops up for a second and then disappears. Click on anything, it does the same thing. Restart the app with no other apps open, it does the same thing. So it makes it so you are unable to enter the pin thus not able to use the app. Also I paid for the app and there is still constant advertisements and pop ups.

It’s an okay app
I downloaded this app and I honestly did like it at first but then all these adds started popping up when I pressed a button more than once and it was getting really annoying so I deleted it but if you have patience then yeah I would recommend it but it’s just not for me because I don’t have much patience in total it’s a good app because I have tried a few and out of all of them this is the best so yeah I do recommend it for people with patience

It’s good it just the ads
The remote control works well and yes and Is good to use but my main problem is the ads they constantly appear on the phone which is very annoying, if you want to remove the ads you got to pay $8.99 to remove the ads and is stupid expensive I seen cheaper like they cost like. 1.99 that would at least be a fair deal but no they to make it expensive I still like this app but it’s flawed by very annoying ads.

It would be faster to dig around the house and find the remote or go to the store and buy a new one than to use this app. As some others have pointed out there are a lot of ads. I thought they were just whining, but it’s true. This is the first time I’ve ever had ads interfere to the point that I couldn’t even get a good read on the basic functionality of an app to figure out if I wanted to buy it. Tried to navigate to the first Netflix thing I saw (about a 15 second task) and had 4 ads pop up—2 of them videos. Look elsewhere.

takes a while for buttons to work sometimes and so many ads
The smart button takes forever to work and the remote disconnects from the tv a lot (multiple times a day when I stay home all day). There are also so many ads that you have to wait for them to go away; like no skip button or whatever. It works fine, the ads are just annoying and get in the way a lot.

This app Is amazing but the amount of ads are crazy. Every time I try to make about 5 clicks I get an ad but at least their not video ads but there are so many ads I bet the creator of this app has a mansion with 5 fully paid off super cars. every time I try to make it to where I want to be I get a series of ads matter of fact I should make an app like this. Wish me good luck

Useless after “allow permission” required to use.
I bought this because my kids are always losing the remote and it was awesome while it worked. Unfortunately after the update that requires you to actually use your tv remote to grant control for the app to work on your phone (every single time you try to use it), the whole point of using it is rendered moot. I paid $10 for this app and that would’ve been better spent buying an actual extra remote.

Error messages and no help from developers
I downloaded this a few days ago. My smart tv and phone were synced to the same WiFi and the app wouldn’t work. I tried everything and the remote just telling me it didn’t sense my tv to sync it to the WiFi which it was. I reached out to the developer via email and messenger. No response. I included pics that’s the phone and tv where on the same WiFi hoping that would help. Nothing. Complete silence. It’s been days without a peep from them. Super frustrating and I will be uninstalling.

No Support
I was enjoying using this remote until it froze up and quit working. While I was using it, I paid 5.99 to remove ads. Worked like a charm until it died. So I uninstalled the app and downloaded it again from the App Store. Well, there were those pesky adds back. I attempted to notify the developer, but to no avail. Then I had a pop up come on the screen. It said that I had already purchased the add free portion of the app and did I want to reinstall it. I said YEAH!! But I STILL HAVE ADS!!! And the developer is nowhere to be found... Shame on you!!!

Universal remote
It’s nice, but ultimately if you have a smart TV you have to have the remote to “approve” the app using your tv. Once it’s approved, if you try to use another phone/app it kicks all accounts off and you yet again have to have the actual remote to “approve” the app. Once you finally get on, every 5-10 clicks is a 5-10 second ad. I genuinely watch the ads more than I use the app. It’s so frustrating

I downloaded this app bc I couldn’t find my remote at the moment. As I was typing in my log in credentials to watch Netflix, I could barely get in two letters without the ads popping up literally EVERY 2 SECONDSSS. I spent about 10-15 minutes trying to log in bc the ads kept popping up. I couldn’t take it anymore so I desperately looked for my remote control till I found it and deleted this app ASAP! Do yourselves a favor and don’t bother downloading this app unless you’re patient enough to sit through the ads every 2 seconds

What’s the point?
I misplaced my tv remote, which is nobody’s fault but my own, however, how does it make sense to download this app to use in substitution for your physical remote when trying to connect requires you to “allow access” on your tv, how am I supposed to click yes on my tv without a remote which is what I’m using this app to solve? I literally laughed because it defeats the whole purpose. don’t waste your time, there will ads after ads on top of that.

This app is horrible.
This app is a completely terrible app. First off this app gives you so many apps. Not to mention when you get hit with a ad it won’t let you exit out of the ad no matter how many times you click the x button. Also if you keep clicking the button it will kick you out of the app. And second off when you search for you tv connected to your WiFi it will say it’s scanning then say no TVs for that network or something similar. 🖕🏾🖕🏾🖕🏾

Great remote but CANT get answers for HELP, EVER!
I PAID for AD FREE version but when the remote quit functioning properly I uninstalled it and reinstalled it but with ads! I have emailed them numerous times and they say they will get back to me but they NEVER do! I don’t want to pay for ad free twice! The remote is sooooooo annoying with ads popping up every time I press a button on the remote. Without ads I would love this remote‼️5 ⭐️’s love but without ad free it’s too frustrating to use so 1 ⭐️ for that. This has gone on since 8/7/19 when I finally emailed them and wrote to them on fb messenger. Crickets ‼️🦗 Patty

It worked enough to connect to my TV on the phone and have the right name of my TV other than that it doesn't do a thing just enough to get your money so you don't see the ads that keep interrupting everything and the reason they do that is so that you can't see that it doesn't actually work until you take the edge off and then you find out it doesn't work

More ad generator than remote
If you enjoy having to watch a video ad every single time you need to push a button, which you need to do to push a button to skip an ad on your tv, this is the best remote out there to do that job but it does not turn on the tv and sometimes the buttons don’t register but rest assured that ad will play regardless. I get it’s the free version but it’s unusable not just slightly annoying as motivation to buy.
