Your app has come in handy. But I’d like my $1.00 back. It should be free. I’m newly paralyzed and drop and lose everything. I added this app so I wouldn’t have to inconvenience others to help me locate my remote immediately when I misplace it. I couldn’t give it 5 stars because the tutorial provided more confusion than clarity for me. Also there are things on the screen such as those four colored circles that seem to provide no purpose which could be used for more important remote features for instance volume controls. Descent app none the less.

Not sure why other reviews are so negative. This app is awesome! I hate the fact that the DirecTV remote doesn’t have a backlit feature. Trying to fumble around with the buttons in the dark is next to impossible. This app is a great replacement and is now what I use when watching tv in bed. If it gets a dark mode it’ll be 5 stars for me. Highly recommend!

I found that this app works very well. After I downloaded a new iOS, however, I was having a problem. I contacted the developer, and got an immediate email back suggesting a solution that worked like a charm. The only suggestion I would have for improvement would be to add the ability to swipe and see what is coming up on a channel (as you can do with the Guide on the handheld remote). Still, this is a great app and deserves five stars.

You know at first I tried connecting to my Direct TV and it wasn’t working at all which made me frustrated so I decided to write an email to the creator of this app to see if he could help me fix it or refund me. Not only did he respond at a good time but also helped with through on how to connect this app to my tv correctly and I was finally able to know where I went wrong and now I’m connected to my tv, it works perfectly!

This app works horribly its too slow and it lags a lot half of the function do not even work everytime you try to scroll through the guide it starts to scroll by itself and it will do that for like a minute and then you when it exit and go back to the guide to find the channel you want. Overall this app is horrible I would not recommend it and it is a waste of .99 cent.
