Ratings and Reviews
Does one small thing reasonably well and another very poorly
It's a remote for your hotel TV. The hotel has to be set up to use it, of course. It shows you which channels are available, and lets you choose one. Or change the volume.
There's an optional guide which, at $1/year, you should probably get. However: it's frequently wrong. In fact, the guide is wrong at least as often as it's right. I believe the problem is time zones—they either don't know which one the hotel I'm at is in, or they don't know which feed the hotel is receiving, but either way: it's bad. It is, however, every so marginally better than nothing. Like, ⅓¢ per day better. Which is about what it costs.
At the end of the day, though, the fewer times I have to handle the hotel remote, the better.
Simple, but nice app
Handy & works great. Doesn't do much, but it does it well. I don't like keeping track of the hotel remote & always have my phone near me so it's very convenient. Would rather touch my own device than a germ magnet with who knows what on it. The channel listing on the app is better than referencing the hotel room card. Purchasing the program guide for $0.99 was well worth it as it saves so much time flipping through all the channels looking for a good show to watch. I didn't care to steam any content so I didn't try, but the app description does say that device streaming is only avail in certain places and provides a link to check, so not sure why people give it a low rating over that. Could the app do more? Of course, but it's basically just a remote and it is a better remote than the room remote. Will definitely use on future trips.
Remote vs Data Vacuuming - Remote please
It’s crap ware. It adds no value. It vacuums unnecessary data.
“ Information We Collect Automatically:
Most of the information that we collect from within mobile applications, including device and hardware identifications, device type, request type, your carrier, your carrier user identification, the nature or content of a request, basic information on usage and basic information about SONIFI products and services will not, by itself, personally identify you to SONIFI, a SONIFI affiliate, or a SONIFI advertiser. Such information, however, may be unique and if associated or combined with other information, could be used to personally identify you. If you use location-enabled products and services, you may be sending us location information and that could reveal the vicinity of your actual location. “
In How can they not identify someone with device and hardware and carrier user identification? Why need all that - it’s a remote control app? Why not just device type, device OS version, carrier / carrier type and date? Why location-enabled data when location is KNOWN by service at activation point? (Like you already know the place a traveler is staying).
It’s this sneaky stuff that makes it crapware. And you and I have to email them to request any data protection. Ugh.
Please. I Never. Ever. Use it.
