Amazing app

This is my first review on the App Store. Just wanted to say how well made this app is. Not only is it free, and I hope it will continue to be, but the UI is sleek and well designed. The set-up is really easy too. I highly recommend this app for anyone with a Samsung TV.

The tabs offer all controls built into the remote and one in particular allows for quick navigation to any app you have installed which is far better than the long bar at the bottom of your TV. Furthermore, this app solved a big annoyance for us since we have two identical Samsung TVs next to each other and a remote that works for both. This app solves that issue and in terms of a recommendation hope the developer can potentially add a way to control both TVs at the same time without having to disconnect (if that’s even possible?) but it’s not really that big of a deal. Really well done, download it.

This is the only one!

When I searched the App Store for a Samsung
Remote Control app, I started at the top of the recommended apps and started testing them. Every one failed to work with my 2014 Samsung TV, or wanted money before it could be tested with my TV. I had nearly given up testing and was way down the list of recommended apps when to my astonishment ControlMeister worked perfectly.
Why this app doesn’t come up at the top shows there is something left out of the search algorithm that picks who’s at the top. This is the only one that worked! Count for yourself how far down the list ControlMeister is and then waste no more time and just get it.

Doesn’t work if can’t turn tv on/activate with original remote

I was so excited that this remote actually worked, since I’ve tried other ones & they did not.
We lost our remote, but the tv was left on so I was able to connect this app. Even though it wanted me to verify with original remote, somehow it went anyway?! 🤷🏼‍♀️
Then I made the stupid mistake of using the app power button to turn my tv off and now I cannot turn it back on. There’s no power button on my Samsung television & the original remote is missing, hence needing this app! I don’t know if others have this issue with their Samsung tv, who the heck makes a tv without a power button?!
Anyways, if your remotes missing & your tvs on, this will work! If your tvs off & there’s no power button like mine, I guess you’re screwed
