it works. a few keys are out of place but it works. i look foward to seeing more from these guys.
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.
Does nothing on my vizio 55 d series? Nice idea though
I heart radio button does nothing! Seemed like a good app. But I found bugs after 5 minutes of use.
Was bummed we lost control and found this.app. so far so good!
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...!
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.
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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)
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
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!
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.
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 .
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.
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
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!!
Worked fine at first then main app button stopped working. Freezing entire tv opetation and loud ads started blasting out of no where. Annoying
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.
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.
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!
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!
Love the interface! Looks and functions just like my Vizio remote (which broke). Connected seamlessly, unlike the zillion other remote programs I tried!
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!
Our remote eats batteries pretty fast and never seems to be in a convenient location. Getting this app solved both issues. Sometimes you have to hold the buttons instead of just pushing buttons like the regular remote. It's worth the extra time when you're laid up from knee surgery and someone left the remote on the other side of the living room again. I've installed this app on every phone and tablet that we have.
Menu button should work same as the remote . same option to be able to connect to Wi-Fi if lost connect. Sometimes you have to enter your Wi-Fi pass code . but Thu menu button does not allow you to do that . so until they fix that menu button thumbs down ....
This app has only two problems, the button that should take you to the tv's menu takes you to your apps page. And the button that should take you to your apps list doesn't work at all. Also my phone is a Samsung Galaxy 6 with the Marshmallow update. Update, it used to work now it doesn't.
The app works as an awesome replacement for my actual remote. I just don't like that some of the buttons don't function properly. Can't use the guide button and that makes it a little annoying to watch a show.
awesome app thanks for making it. it saved me from have to look at the store demo, because I lost the remote for my TV and the only way to turn it off is with the remote. so thanks again and you rock.
This app is overall a good app. However it will not access I heart radio on my tv. Both amazon and Netflix buttons work on my phone but the I heart radio button doesn't. Any suggestions how to fix this problem?
I lost my tv remote and was panicing i would have to pay $20 for a new one and then i discovered this. Easy to use and works great!
It's a wonderful feature to have it on your phone since my phone is constantly a foot away from me, my TV remote stopped working and I didn't have to spend money in buying one just downloaded it for free. Love it.
Worked the first time I used it on my S6. To bad it's not compatible with other version of androids.
Broke my remote. Downloaded this meanwhile I wait for new one. It was way better than I expected it to be, works well. No serious problems with it.
All the other apps dont have all the functions. This one looks and acts exactly like the real remote!
