Universal TV Remote Customer Insights

1. Still, it didn't have an LG service remote option, which is what I needed to disable that freaking ABSL static image dimming that's making me want to pull what's left of my hair out, but at least it actually worked as a regular remote...Wow this app would be amazing! ..IF it worked like it says it does, which it does not! They claim to offer IR learning from other remotes, & the app says to select "Learn" but does not give you that as an option.

2. But it can be a remote, they just didn't have to lie about it & make up fake functions that don't exist.deny access to my photos and media files, because this app doesn't need permission to my folders, and it glitches and refuses to work.

3. I can still use the remotes I have, which is good, but I can't make any new ones until this is fixed.Edit to add: Found another video that gave slightly better information & now have a workable, if limited, remote for my 10 year old tv.

4. However, the ads! Who thought it was a good idea to have video ads play when using the app as a TV remote? Another issue is that to access digits to select a tv channel, my phone has to be turned side on which is awkward.

5. An improved method for correctly determining the correct choice of code set plus an expanded help function would make this actually useful.Works and isn't a big rush of ads - that fact shocks me, especially in light of the other reviews.

6. Gets one star because I can't give zero.Looking for an IR remote for my 20 year old radio, tried this app selected the radio remotes and it loaded dvd players or something.

7. I was, going to see if this app would work on my newer TV, and am stuck with the same error message when I try to create a new remote, like their system/web broke.

8. Sometimes it takes a few tries but once you find the correct code it works good as long as your using a device that ACTUALLY has an IR BLASTER not just an IR receiver like most new phones come with.

9. Used to work, now it's only good for ad delivery--that part works entirely too well! Apparently, the developer is fine with collecting ad revenue but can't be bothered to maintain the app.

10. Load an ad when opening the app.very few IR remote apps left and this one works great.

11. It used to work fine, and was my favorite IR Remote app until this happened.
