Constantly losing connection

Play/pause and stop buttons need to be bigger!

If you are having constant disconnects, it may be your router. I would have never thought this would cause a local wifi issue. After hours of trouble shooting, and dealing with disconnects for a month I figured out it was the previous router firmware update that caused it. ASUS posted a newer firmware update that fixed the disconnects.

Nice app

Great remote. One request: please add more vertical space between the buttons. For example, moving the row of four buttons at the bottom (the one containing the headphone icon) down a bit would make it easier to tap the back arrow without accidentally tapping the headphone button. There’s a lot of blank space under that bottom row that could be used to make the remote less cramped.

Navigation could be optimized

I really like having this remote! I just wish I could navigate to the remote control button style quicker without having to undo all my path navigation or deal with the fact that it’s on the settings sidebar.
