Awesome app, even better support from developer

Title says it all. This app is awesome, especially on your Apple TV. I was having an issue making an in-app purchase and the developer was very helpful to get the problem sorted out. I don't think I've ever received such good service from an app developer before. Kudos to you sir!! Job very well done!!!

Native App missing features that were in Web App

I used to use Remote Buddy on my computer all the time in combination with a regular apple remote as well as their web app on my iPhones. I used it for many things, but my favourite was using it as a remote for iTunes. It was amazing and I could see all of my iTunes info directly on my phone, with the interface looking just like a music player. I would often listen to music in my home and rate each new song in iTunes as it came on. This was super easy as the web app gave me access to ratings and everything else I needed including album art.

A few years ago I stopped using Remote buddy completely as they didn’t update the web app and it eventually became glitchy and ceased to function.

Anyways, today I noticed that there was a Remote Buddy mobile app and I got all excited. I downloaded it expecting to have an even better user experience than the old web app I had been using years ago… But unfortunately that was not the case. This app is just a basic remote. No access to iTunes information, album art, playlists, ratings, etc.

I really hope that IOSPIRIT eventually does make a remote I can use on my phone… But until then, my Remote Buddy computer app that I paid for will continue to sit on my computer and do nothing.

**Edit: I have updated my review to 3/5 from 1/5. I did this as I found that Apple now has their own Remote app that has the functions that I want. Since this is now completed by another app, I can now give Remote Buddy an improved star rating as it does an ok job for the functions that it has.
