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.

Amazing! Just one thing

This app is amazing and honestly a life saver. I lost my actual remote recently but luckily my TV was on so I was able to get apps for it. All the other apps had ads every 10 or something clicks which was so annoying, but so far I haven’t gotten any ads which I really love!

The only thing I wish would change is being able to turn on and off the TV. I understand that there are limitations to many things and the one limitation of this app is turning it back on, but it is just a little annoying having to have a different app to turn it back on since I no longer have the remote. But all in all, it’s amazing and I 100% recommend!

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.
