I lost my TV remote for a little while and it only had a power and input button but no way to control volume or channel and this app solved that problem. Works great so far, so I'm happy.
Everything works except the square Vizio button in the middle of remote. It's the button that takes you to all of the applications such as Hulu, YouTube etc... the whole reason you buy a smart TV is for these apps. With this app you will always need to keep the original Remote around. The solution is simple: Download the app in Google Play Store called "Remote control for Vizio TV" it looks the same but it's made by a different developer. It also works EXACTLY like the real remote that comes with the Vizio TV. I can ow stuff the original Remote in a drawer and forget about it...!
Was bummed we lost control and found this.app. so far so good!
I heart radio button does nothing! Seemed like a good app. But I found bugs after 5 minutes of use.
Does nothing on my vizio 55 d series? Nice idea though
So far, the app is working with my note 4 and my vizio tv. The overall appearance of the remote , for the app is very similar to the one that comes with the tv, and makes it more useful. I would like to see a dedicated button for the youtube,hulu, apps like the stock remote has. I will update my rating of the app as I use it.
it works. a few keys are out of place but it works. i look foward to seeing more from these guys.
This app was great for like 2 months, I absolutely loved it now it won't work. Fully charged phone and everything. This is now just supper annoying!
Love the interface! Looks and functions just like my Vizio remote (which broke). Connected seamlessly, unlike the zillion other remote programs I tried!
Don't even need to do anything to set it up. Description says there are ads but they aren't intrusive at all, like they are with Peel remote (ads keep going even if you pay to turn them off). Great app!
I love this app. My dog chewed up my remote that looked just like this app. No need to program it or anything. I'm thrilled!
I'm not sure what happened. I pointed, clicked and nothing happened. I uninstalled and reinstalled, pointed, clicked and nothing still. I hate it. It worked so well for so long.
My remote seems to disappear quite often in this house...thanks to my 2 year old. But this is amazing! Looks just like the remote and works the same way.
Worked fine at first then main app button stopped working. Freezing entire tv opetation and loud ads started blasting out of no where. Annoying
Worked great for me. I lost my remote and the universal one I baught wouldn't let me adjust the picture size. This helped a ton. I can watch tv utilizing my full screen. Thanks!!
Dropped my remote....broke... went to youtube.. saw a video of this app.. life saver... still don't have a remote.. but the kids can't turn on the tv... and if they do find a way to do so...... I turn it off from my phone will they struggle to figure out how it turned off hahahahaha
The middle button to pull up the apps menu doesn't work so you cant get to Hulu or any of your other apps. The Iheartradio app doesn't work either. Basically all I can use it for is getting to netflix.
Using it with my galaxy 4.0 tablet that has an IR blaster. Make sure your phone or tablet has an IR blaster if not,won't work , then youd have to download a app that can connect to your smart tv through WiFi and if your TV doesn't have WiFi or is not a smart tv your out of luck, do your research it's easy Google it through your TV model or make if you can. Being informed is better than being stupid , if you are to lazy to figure out the tv remote control app your an idiot .
Other remote apps work so I know it is not my lg g3 phone. This app although looks close to my TV remote will not do anything. I have old Vizio e320vl tv. Sorry devs this doesn't work on every vizio TV.
Saved the day! The tv remote gets "lost" all the time in this house. Without it we can't use the smart tv options, thank goodness for this app it has everything my missing remote does!
Works perfectly! Controls are almost identical to original T.V. remote.... Buuuut, it has a bad tendency to stop working, & has to be reset. It's annoying enough to make a person consider uninstallment. =ĺ
My Pit bull & Border Coli/Blu healer ate 6 remote controls I had no way of buying 3 remotes so I downloaded this app (You feel me)
Lost my vizio remote and this one is waaaay better than trying to conquer the dreaded universal types. Just be sure you're device is equipped with an IR blaster.
Didn't think it would work on my old 32" Vizio Plasma tv I get way back in '09. I still have the old remote the tv came with, but some of the buttons are not responsive anymore, so this is a great alternative option to buying a replacement remote! Update: You MUST HAVE an internet connection in order to use this app. WTF?! Give us an option to get a paid version of this app with NO add, please.
Worked immediately with no set up. Does all the things my actual remote did Edit: down to 4 stars as it prompts me to rate it every time I open the app.
This app worked great at first no problems than one day it just stopped working all together. I tried uninstalling and installing again but still wouldnt work. And nothing changed with my tv
I know it's my particular TV model but this remote does not have a button that lets me access the TV settings such as brightness, color, etc. I lost the remote months ago. I have a new internet connection and want to set up the Wi-Fi on the TV but cannot do that without the TV settings. The "menu" button doesn't bring that up. It's my TV, it's a weird model, but it is a video. A razor led. Still looking for an app that might have a button that brings up the settings.
I just needed a way to control volume and turn my TV on and off. Everything else I do with the Playstation controller. So far this has been great! It was super easy. I literally downloaded it pointed it at my TV and adjusted the volume. Oh and it's not a smart TV or anything, I've had this Vizio since like 2010
Was awesome when i first downloaded, but now I try to use the app and it says its "Loading" and doesnt ever actually "Load", so I am unable to use any part of the remote until its finished, but never finishes loading! I have already uninstalled and reinstalled once, but if i exit the application, I am not able to get the app to work after opening it up a second time.
The keyboard works but only let's you send a test of... Abcdef to your TV..... Works now. Fixed it
Most of the time when I open the app, it sits on the ad loading screen for a few minutes. Needs an update to fix this or I'll uninstall.
It is ok but has some problems
We needed two remotes because of the size of the room. This app filled that gap on my G4 pad.,
This is the only one that works on my older GFM tv/DVD combo. Tried many, this one was an unexpected success. :)
Buttons are a little off from my real remote but works wonderfully! No programing or anything. Download, open, point and click.
I didn't even need to hook up it just hooked up automatically
The remote works stunningly. Way Better than any other remote for vizio out there. The key board feature is super cool.
Its ok, I guess. The app bottom doesn't work.
This app reduces the time spent looking for the remote since I always have my phone with me. Point and press and bam!!! You're there.
2 year old lost my remote. this app saved my life!
