The app does what it advertises, but it would benefit from a few more features.
Here is what it does not do:
- Does not allow tuning of radio
- No zone control
Simple controls in your Menu Bar
Opening OnkyMote actually enables a Menu Bar item; no icon appears in the Dock nor do windows open like full-blown “apps.” Perhaps some users became distressed when nothing seemed to happen upon launching it.
OnkyMote does what it claims, offering simple input selection and volume control. Power on/off sometimes goes stupid and you may on occasion need to quit/reopen to reestablish communication with your receiver. While I would welcome added functions in light of the price tag, this is nonetheless a handy item to have with your integrated living room or whatever configuration brought you here.
I was also initially momentarily confused as to where to see the app functions until I looked at the top of my screen and saw the receiver icon. Does exactly what I was looking for, a quick primary function control without having to look for my Onkyo remote or open an iOS app. Thanks!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
