Your TV and phone/tablet must have infrared interface!
★ Point your phone’s IR blaster directly at the TV like with the original infrared remote. Usual working range is 3 - 15ft (line of sight).
★ With some phones in power saving mode or with almost empty battery the IR signal is very weak and range is less then 5ft.
All functions should work with the latest (2015) models. If you have 10 year old TV model which does not have internet connection, then of course some internet related (apps) buttons does not work, but all common functions will still work.
Supported devices: devices with IR blaster running on Android KitKat or Lollipop like Galaxy series S4, S5, S6, S6 Edge, Note, Tab, Mega, HTC One series incl. M7/M8/M9, LG G3 Stylus, TCT / Alcatel I221 and some Lonovo tablets with IR interface.
Thanks for downloading this app. If this app doesn't work with your phone or TV then feel free to e-mail me.
This app is made by me and is NOT affiliated with or endorsed by Vizio or any other developers.
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!
When I'm feeling a lil sideways from one too many or a few too many depends and can't find the remote!! Boom son I got one on my phone!!
The dog ate our remote. He has a thing for remotes but leaves our cell phones alone. This solves everything!
Somehow there is malware on it and I dont know what I can do to get it off. Please someone tell me how to fix.
Our remote broke and we were desperate. Easiest remote I've used. Just load and use. Awesome!
Or remote quit working after much abuse. I download this app and it works beautifully
Having lost my remote, I tried many remote control apps for my Vizio & could not find one that worked.... finally this one did. My satellite remote takes care of power & volume just fine. This app (on Galaxy S7 Edge) allows me to launch my Netflix on my smart TV for the first time! Love it! :-)
I'm glad I found this my TV remote broke and thought I had to buy a new one
I like it but about every third time I have to force close and clear cache to get it to open. Still don't have to buy a new remote :)
App works for my 24 in viz smarttv but like others say menu button opens up the apps but you can still get to the menu by scrolling till you see hdtv settings. For that i give it 4 stars
Dog chewed up the factory remote, downloaded this app and it does what its supposed to do! Very pleased!
Works great! My original remote broke, this is a life saver.
The middle button which opens the mini app drawer doesn't work
App works on my old HTC phone that I dont use any more, but on my current phone (Samsung) the app isn't even offered, there is no alternative!
My Visio remote was misplaced so I got this app for my Galaxy Note 4 it worked exelent.
You don't have to do anything to pair it with your tv, it automatically synced with my tv.
I haven't been using it long but it's exactly like my remote. The response time is great and the remote is easy to use
Thank you so much for this !!!!! it worked perfectly if you're like me and always losing your remote and can't afford to replace them all the time??? this app is for you !!!!!! I can't stress enough how grateful I am
It takes little practice to find the right angle to control the tv...once you get it it woks like a charm.
2 year old lost my remote. this app saved my life!
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.
Its ok, I guess. The app bottom doesn't work.
The remote works stunningly. Way Better than any other remote for vizio out there. The key board feature is super cool.
I didn't even need to hook up it just hooked up automatically
Buttons are a little off from my real remote but works wonderfully! No programing or anything. Download, open, point and click.
This is the only one that works on my older GFM tv/DVD combo. Tried many, this one was an unexpected success. :)
We needed two remotes because of the size of the room. This app filled that gap on my G4 pad.,
It is ok but has some problems
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.
The keyboard works but only let's you send a test of... Abcdef to your TV..... Works now. Fixed it
