Version 1.8.1

- Fix reduced resolution for thumbnails

Movie-set behaviour was changed with Remote App 1.8. You need to configure Kodi server to either show or ignore movie sets with only a single movie. This as well can be done in the Remote App via the settings menu (Media / Videos / Include sets containing a single movie). For Kodi versions 15 and earlier this setting is not available, the Remote App will show all movie sets.

Needs ignore article

This app would be awesome IF!!!!!! You would stop being lazy and add ignore A, An, and The articles so sorting movies is like every other quality app. Until this happens, this app is garbage. Others and myself, too many to count, have been begging, but you don't listen. No wonder The Remote For Kodi is the goto app.

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.

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.
