Ratings and Reviews
Overall a Great App
This is an overall great app. It lets me play PC games from anywhere on my phone at a Somewhat low delay (depending on the service/WiFi) which is a great convienence. However, aside from this being a great app, there are a few things to be improved. First of all there is no customizable control scheme. There is no customizing for the on screen controls whatsoever, rather than it displaying on the screen or not, also having a simple option with only l3 and r3, there is just a ton of useless buttons. Who needs a dpad that takes half the screen when you never need it. I’d say 90% of all emulators have an option to set the size of certain buttons, which is disappointing that this app doesn’t have that. Also I’d be nice to rebind the controls for mfi controllers. The WOL feature also doesn’t work when I made sure to port forward all the ports nessisary. Including the WOL one. Anyway this app is great, and I hope the dev implements more to it because it has great potential.
Great, although some suggestions
This is an awesome app for when you don’t feel like getting out of bed to play some PC games, but it could be better. For instance, the controls are very restricted. It’s either NO controls (you move your finger around to move the cursor), SIMPLE controls (just 6 buttons, in the RB LB configuration, seen on the top of controllers, plus two other buttons), and FULL controls (freaking PS D pad, shoulder buttons and bumpers, TWO thumb sticks, an XYAB button configuration, and start/select near the bottom edges). In my opinion, it’s either not enough or WAY TOO MUCH, as in a lot of cases only need two thumb sticks, XYAB, and start/select (ok, maybe the bumpers and shoulder buttons). The rest is just covered up screen space. Please add an option to set custom button layouts and sizes, and to choose what buttons you need. It would greatly increase the usefulness of this app. Other than that, that’s pretty much the only complaint I have. It’s responsive, but I probably wouldn’t use it for FPSes, and tweakable bitrates from 0.5 mbps to 50 mbps (default 10 on 720p, 20 on 1080p), and framerates either 30 Hz or 60 Hz. I would recommend 20 Mbps at 1080p 60Hz, but you could go for a lower setting. Overall pretty OK app, let down by the controls.
By the way, it works pretty well on my laptop:
Inspiron 15 i5577
i5 7th gen 3500hq
8 GB ram
2.4 GHz 20 MBPS down / 5 MBPS up
Although you probably want 5 GHz.
It needs an explicit “how to fix” regarding screen flashing.
This app is all I could ask for out of a game streaming app, it’s beautiful and hands down the best thing out there. My biggest issue is the flickering in the games that is easily fixed by disabling “big picture mode” in steam. I wish I didn’t have to suffer from that flashing over and over as it gave me an intense headache. It should be clearly stated that you need to do this in the support page.
