Great Remote...IF you leave it ON!!

I WAS planning to leave a really good review of this app (even if it cost $20 for unlimited use). I paid the unlimited use fee (for continual updates with no ads etc), and the remote really works great! I like the touchpad option and the position of all the buttons. But, then I noticed a problem where the remote stops working if it’s turned OFF (or if you switch to another app). As a result, I have to restart (or refresh) the remote app every time I go to a diff app on my iPhone (?) Really???

FYI: I’m using the newest iPhone iOS on an iPhone XMax. So, everything is “up-to-date”. My suggestion would be to either figure out a way for the remote to maintain a connection switching apps OR simply put a “refresh button” that allows users to reconnect quickly if they had to switch over to another app while using the remote, etc. BTW...I’m using Samsung 7 Series w/the remote.

Need Real Remote To Work! Not Worth $20!!!

You’re better off just buying a new remote! It does work with my Samsung Q7 -BUT- you still have to have a Samsung remote available to “allow” the app to connect in the first place. Which defeats the purpose of me downloading and paying $20 for this app. I only bought it because I lost my remote and figured I’d download this app to replace it. Unfortunately, it was useless until I got a hold of a real Samsung remote from a friend, to allow the app to connect to my tv. Then I found out that the app doesn’t even stay connected to the TV even after the “allow” step. I have to constantly allow connection for the app to work. Which means you need a real remote on hand... to allow a digital remote to control your TV but why would anyone need to download this app if they already had a real remote?! They wouldn’t. And the app itself doesn’t stay connected to the TV despite not needing the “allow” process. I find my self continuously having to close the app and then reopening it and then going through the process of searching and selecting my TV every time I exit that app to do something else on my phone or just close my screen. It’s too much of a hassle to use for $20. Worth more like 0.99 TOPS! A real legitimate Samsung remote costs even less than $20, with no constant fuss of reconnections needed. UGH!

Thank you for your review. Unfortunately this step is required as your Smart TV protects itself from external devices. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Fix the problem of staying connected while switching app

Out of frustration, I bought this app when I lost my real remote. This app is promising and could even replace the real remote. The main problem for this is that the app doesn’t seem to stay connected when switching apps. I hope that this problem will be solved. Otherwise it’s a great app and everyone should buy it.
