It is just okay - UPDATED

UPDATE - The developer has responded to my original review below. I am going to email them as they requested regarding some of my issues and will update this review again when I’ve heard back from them. I appreciate that they are this hands-on in tackling issues so we’re off to a good start.

Original review:
The Auto Discover option never works, so I have to select my computer from a list each time I want to connect. The UI is weirdly coloured purple and pink and I can’t see where to change that. It also takes the art for a movie file to make it a purplish background image. It then stretches it to fit vertically, which deforms the image. I don’t like how much personal data the app collects. It shouldn’t need anything seeing as how it’s a remote app. I’d rather have it respect my privacy and not collect any of my information, like so many developers are doing. Lastly every kind of remote (Netflix, computer etc.) is a paid add-on which is very frustrating.

Developer Response ,

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Please restart VMR Connect on your PC/Mac whenever the app fails to discover your computer. Usually, it shouldn't happen, may I know which computer you are using? So we can look into the issue.

Currently, there's only one theme in the app, so you cannot change it. And we'll improve the image stretching issue, thank you for reporting it.

We do not collect any personal data, please check out the privacy policy and app's listing page in App Store for more information.

You can use all paid features for free by watching an ad, check that out if you haven't already.

I hope that answers your concerns, if there's anything else please write to us at

Thank you
