  • Not worth a subscription

    You can only click a few times before a full screen prompt pops up it begging for a subscription of 40 per year, or 8.99 a month, or 29 for lifetime. You can click the X to close it but I will pop up again and again after just a few clicks. It is not worth at all. It’s much cheaper to buy a new remote, and the button layout is far better then the app anyhow. This app is pathetic.

    • Subscription Cancellation is not possible

      I signed up for the trial. The app couldn’t locate my smart YV so I tried to cancel it. There is no way to cancel a subscription. I wrote to support but have not heard back. Please don’t test drive this app - it’s evidently an irreversible transaction! If anyone has had success with cancellation please do let me know how too, I’ll appreciate your guidance. Regards.

    • Expensive power button

      You don’t have to pay to use the remote, but “full access” requires a subscription. The power button requires full access.

    • Don’t buy

      I bought the lifetime subscription and it does not work. It shows that it’s connected to my Tv but nothing happens. I’ve tried disconnecting and reconnecting. My tv is on the same wifi as my phone so that’s not the problem.

      I understand maybe an ad or two. But blocking basic function with premium is ridiculous. You might as well make it a paid app to download seeing as it’s unusable without premium.
