Pretty good to much requires payment i.e. sleep timer really lol maybe I'm wrong other wise excellent may purchase further along.
Don't bother. You can't even use your own android keyboard when you're typing something. The track pad is disabled. You don't even get a trial period. They ask for £8.5/$10 but you don't know what you're buying.
Best app! But one thing is is that it won't connect my TV ive been looking for the remote and literally no luck please make this work
This might be the worst app I've ever used in my life. This is probably the only app I've ever reviewed too.
When it rarely works it barely does. If you don't close the app all the way then the arrow pops up on your screen. Even with the bought version it does stay preloaded but you have to wait quite a while for it to connect. DONT BUY THIS APP YOU WILL NOT GET A REFUND
Really like this, looks better than LG's version and can choose favourite apps. Would like it if it had more than just volume control on the notification controller or would be even better if could choose what to add to the notification controller 😊 just noticed you can expand it would love it if there was an option to keep it expanded 😊
This is best thing to have especially with my handicap it makes it easier than the actual remote. Definitely worth the price.
Before the update, the app worked fine with minor hiccups. Now the app will not stay open. Even after uninstalled and reinstalled.
It doesnt automatically connect. I have to turn my tv off then back on every time for it to work.... kinda defeats the purpose
My power button only works 3/10 of the time. I purchased the premium. The power button was the main reason I got this app.
You should give people a trial a 1 week trial with all the buttons functioning to see if you're product actually works it says for 139MN I could buy all the functions but without a trial the price does not convince me whatsoever that's terrible marketing
When you leave the app even with it running in the background and open it up half the buttons don't work anymore and I have to force close it and restart it to get it to work again... I paid for your premium version so I expect this to be fixed... Soon. Phone:Samsung s20 ultra 5g
Overall I am satisfied but the whole app feels like a beta version. Connection sometimes lost (especially with older LG TV, netcast software). I can also see a support for turn on this TV but the power button doesn't do anything. Even cannot be used to turn it off. Also struggle to switch connection between 2 TVs (other one is webOS). All in all the app doesn't react properly in many cases mainly with netcast TV. It's still good, didnt regret buying the premium but waiting for improvements.
only just downloaded, but it does exactly what I needed, with a suuper convenient widget on your phone's top drop down menu. So far so good!
heavy on ads, had 4 in the minute I've been using the free version. want to see if it's worth buying but it's hard to use with so many ads.
Many basic features of the app you need to pay for. Pointless app unless you're paying but there are other apps that do the same thing that you don't need to pay for
I was searching for a rellacement of the original lg remote control software and i found it with more and easier to use features! Definitively worth the one time payment to get rid of the adds and add more functions. Using it every day
Is helpful when you can't find your remote but it's probably best off you buy another remote off Amazon.
This is the best app it doesnt take time to connect it is very good app i love This app 😊😊😊😊😊
I must have installed and Uninstalled quite a few apps as they just won't recognize my TV, they all kept saying check if the TV is on..but this app connected to my TV in split seconds.thanks guys ..I highly recommend this app
One of the worst app experiences I have had in a while. The amount of screen controlling ads is enough to uninstall immediately. App itself works intermittently.
Apps works well on my LG C8 smart TV. Once purchased, ads are completely removed. App developer and support team are responsive and very helpful.
I was only able to use the app 2 times today after that it stopped working and now it wont let me do anything.
Bought the paid version as I liked the interface and to enable the trackpad,but even after paying the trackpad does work the arrow just moves but doesn't select or click. Thus unable to use the trackpad even after buying the paid version. Also there is a painful lag in the trackpad and it's bad to say the least. I wld like a refund. Not recommended the paid version and am not sure without trackpad this is even useful app.
I liked this app initially. It worked seamlessly with my LG TV, as described and was a lifesaver when I remote went missing. But it glitches...A LOT! I have to constantly turn everything off and back on, restart the app which rarely works, go through every single function and then come back to it hoping that ANY of the buttons will work. About 50% of the time this solves the problem. If an app only works 50% of the time or less, that is a major problem.
I have tried this for several months and now is the time for a review. This is well worth the money. My family constantly loses the TV remote and I no longer have to worry. Has all the features including quick access to the apps.
Unable to connect to my LG Smart TV. Indicates please approve connection on Smart TV but nothing appears.
App locking up phone. Had to uninstaller to get it to work, when it did work. I went with upgrade and still same issues. Money back please.
Update: the remote is working now after the Update I reinstalled it and it's great now. If you use a VPN you need to shut it off to find your tv during the initial scan and again anytime you reinstall the app. If app doesn't work periodically uninstall it clear the cache shut off VPN reinstall app follow prompts then turn VPN back on. The free version does enough to control my smart tv just fine
When you are using your internet in the TV it doesn't connect so you have to use another person's internet so it's really hard
Totally worthless app. Most of the practical features cost extra money . The app is filled with tons of third party ads which makes the remote control using experience pointless and tiring. Definitely not recommend!!!
It just works! Installed itself and worked perfectly. Well worth buying the ad free version. When you flip to another app, then come back to it, there is no delay. Really recommend. TL,DR it just works.
Bbc iplayer doesn't work with it, so you have to have your actual remote with you anyway... In which case, what is the point. Also I bought this so that I could use voice commands, but that function is now in an obvious place (if it exists at all). Either way, I can't find it, which is poor design. Personally, I feel scammed out of £8.49.
working fine till now no objections from this app. if I get some error then I will edit my review. this app is fine
Easy to use, easy to connect to TV, works like a charm! Very happy 😊 Saved me money and time. Bravo! Edit 1 hr later: Stopped working. Can only turn on or off and adjust volume. Ngl, yall had me in the first half.
👎👎👎You have to buy the app just to use your remote arrows. The trackpad is also just for the pro ( purchase) version 👎👎👎
I pay on phone and same app on tab not ugraded, still ads and more ads and more ads Many faults -When you enter in "contens" and play some picture cannot go back -Connection is possible only trough same WiFi router, no BTT no direct WiFi -No gravity sensor for Magic LG Only use as mouse pad -If you switch to analog tv app mess up with TV channel settings and cannot be returned to digital TV with normal remote. Only with this app 6 Euro for this? Overpriced I already pay for PRO as stated before Nevertheless on Tab still ads Refund claimed
Shouldn't have to pay for extra features like playing your saved videos etc through the TV. I paid enough for the TV as it is
Ok when it decides to work. Constantly unable to use the power button. Overall app is not reliable. It's a shame.
I am very happy that you paid attention to my review, but I also want to say that your webos is very useless because of the useless applications are stuck inside it and mainly some popular applications like jio cinema, jio TV, MX Player are not there. I am not saying that you give my money back to me, but I definitely want that when I have given money for something, then I can use it properly and I like to use it.
Works perfect after inserting the code in your phone that you see on your TV then after that it works as if you just bought the remote from a store!! I love it!
I have been looking for an app like this for years.. All of them are trash and totally useless except this one.. You don't know how grateful I am for your work. Purchased immediately the premium version. Big 5 stars.
Absolute trash app. Why Tf would someone pay for a "Full Version" for a damn remote?.. there are plenty other FREE FULL REMOTE APPS FOR LG. F this one!! GREEDY TRASH!
i paid premium so that i can use 1 apps for both my tv, but i can still only use for 1 tv..disappointed..
Took forever to connect the tv. One add popped up and was causing my phone to vibrate until I closed the add. Allowing adds like this is unacceptable
Would be nice to get a trail before purchase to make sure it's a good fit. But all in all good app. Has some nice features, but cannot use them unless purchase.
There are defenitly improvements to be made such as voice control TV not turning on when pressing the on/off button bug btw I'm using premium and I'm unsatisfied but that doesn't mean you can't improve your app.
So I bought this on my iPhone. Switched to android and tried to restore it a million times through the app, but it never lets me. I have also emailed them 11 days ago with no response, not even an automated return email or anything. I would have given zero stars if allowed.
Better than the proprietary LG WebOS remote app! The widget is AWESOME & doesn't take time to connect, its immediate!
good, lost remote somewhere and this has saved me, difficult to navigate apps with, a back button on the tracker pad which is obvious would be a great help for old people like myself 😂
Works great one time. Will not connect again unless you uninstall and reinstall. Dumb me paid for the upgraded not working version.
Takes forever to do anything. I can turn the volume up and down at will, but cannot do much else. Waste of money.
My remote broke in half well my hisband broke it anyway we have no extra money and this app right here is a blessing same thing and its right on my phome its fast i dont care about the ads butttt......hey its a free remote so i love it
Due to latest updates from your end, i have been able to use most functions on the remote very well hence the 3stars. May review further as time goes by. Keep it up.
It was great at first until you need to type something in or have to shut the tv off because then they MAKE YOU buy the premium or you wo t be able to reconnect to your tv as I've bin trying for 10 min and finally gave up and ordered a REAL one this is very ignorant that if you want to actually you app multiple time you gotta pay 10$ just to be able to fully use your app there no touch pad or anything unless you pay for it !!!!! RIP OFF VERY DISAPPOINTED
Good when it works which isn't very often it takes a long time to load. I doubt it's the age of my phone some of the other LG remote apps available load alot faster and actually work consistently on my Samsung Galaxy S4.
I downloaded 4 apps that didnt work. I downloaded this app and not only did it work but it only took about 45 seconds to connect to my t.v.
Seems to be a functional and visually pleasing app. Nevertheless, in the free ad-supported version all functions that you would like to experience and test before you spend fluffy 10 Euro are completely disabled. I don't need an app for volume control, but for the smart part of my smart TV. Can't test it, therefore uninstalled. Sad, that the company seems short sighted and outright greedy.
Extremely horrible. It connects for one second and then wait for 5 mins for another connection for one second.
I just downloaded this app and so far, I love it! It doesn't have to re-connect to my tv every time I use it and there aren't a million ads. Thank you!
Previous updates brought many improvements and happy to see that. Let me point out some issues/functions I am still missing from the app: Ch list function still doesn't work with Netcast Tv. Just an empty window pops up. On WebOS it is working fine but implementing a search function would be a huge step forward. That's the point of this function to quickly find that channel you want to switch to. Also noticed that I cannot switch between TVs while they are turned off. Please fix this too
Does what it wants. Works when it wants. Most times the only buttons that work are either the volume buttons or the on and off button. The free version is very limited... But if it properly worked, it would be acceptable. Wouldn't purchase it (even though I was thinking about it), as the app is so inconsistent.
So recently my remote started working weird. So this really helped me. It works with your Smart LG TV guys!
It works well for an app remote. But I think it's bogus that you have to pay to use certain features. For example.... I cannot use the remote to turn my tv on or off, unless I pay for the premium remote..
The app gets to 99% and freezes over tried to download the app 3 times and it freezes in 99% Everytime
Update: after last update it still directs me to open app again, close app or, send feedback. This app was great until recently. Now I have to watch ads over & over. I reinstalled & I have to continue to enter the number on my tv screen to pair it but, it doesn't pair it continues to say enter number on tv screen which is always a new number. Way too many ads ,too long to watch too. I wish developers would create a truly free app option WITHOUT ADS!
It was working for 30 minutes But now they are asking for money Why are you wasting people time If you're selling then put your price at the front as other do so there will be no confusion
Happy to see some improvements but let me point out further issues. My lg tv with netcast software can be turned off now but still cannot be turned on (app says it supports turn on). Also the channel list function fail to load. Just an empty window pops up without any channel to select. Unable to display content (only on netcast TV but lose connection with webOS after some time). Also the whole app lose its connection sometimes especially when sending it to background. Waiting for more stability
It worked for one day. Now half of the buttons don't work. Not even the power button. Then getting a refund is like jumping through hoops. Stick with a free app. It works better.
Another useless app pawning itself off as a good one. You can only adjust volume and channel. No input device or app control without paying.
I mean no offense, but this app is pure and utter cancer. The control scheme isnt optimized for all phones. I have to have a premium to use features paired with ads. Someone else has an info button and i dont. Id give it more stars if at least the premium paywall wasnt present.
Quick review as only had 2 days, paid for the pro version. Would turn off my CX48 but not on, although its IP did not change - the trick is to *** turn off automatic IP *** to make it static, TV turned on after that. Spacebar not working on textpad, but all the basic controls work. Pleased I paid for it.
I lost my LG remote with a lock code on my smart tv. Downloaded this app, and was able to control the tv without any issues. A must have for anyone needing a remote.
Don't waste your time, gotta buy to use advanced features like open Netflix. But just for basic tv use is fine.
im so happy i found this for my tv because its just been sitting here all new and not being watched cuz my baby lost the remote somewhere lol
Terrible compared to the excellent iOS version. Often doesn't connect to the TV (there is only one we use with this app), seems to work only at random. The POLAR opposite of the iOS version, not sure how they screwed up the Android version so badly.
Don't waist your money. The App is free with the basic functions like on /off, channel/volume up/down. If you want to use smart TV functions it charges you $10 bucks for an upgrade. I paid for the upgrade and it worked for a day or two. The only way I can get it to work is by uninstalling it then reinstalling it. I was better off ordering the replacement remote. Save yourself time and money by looking for another app. This one is junk.
Potentially great and user friendly, however I couldnt use any of the functions as it kept asking for money.
Terrible Experience.. Bought the ad free version but still showing ads. Also, at starting it connect to TV but after bought the premium version nothing is working as well Smart apps are also not showing.Trying a lot but didn't get the results. Please help if this can be resolved
I like this app it's really good anyway I have a LG thinq it's really good I can't turn it on but I can turn it off but some things are for money
Poor. Purchased the full app £5.99. It will turn the tv off but not on. Ripped off again. I want my money back.
I think it needs to be more user friendly and automated. Seems as though for many, it doesn't just work from the start. I never knew how to change my broadband settings. So when it didn't work, I had to reset the app, then disconnect the app from the TV... Reconnect and then it work. Still better than not having a remote. Good effort, but I think a more user friendly app will bring your customer experience where it should be.
When i first tried the app, it was good. All systems go. Lol. But after a while it no longer works if you're on Netflix, Disney etc. Only the volume works.it tends to disconnect. You have to reset app and restart tv.
Probably the worst remote on the market. Instantly crashes the phone. Then the app crashes then it disabled my back button. Then froze again. But guess what the advertising works spot on. Don't waste your time downloading this. Advertising stops you from pressing back button. Anything to do with LG is BaD.
When I started the app up, it said "Control your smartTV with your iPhone or Apple Watch." Why it told me this it was loading the Android version, I am not sure. The next window told me to "please wait until your smart TV seach within the network ends." Not sure how I feel about 2 errors which have been hitherto for unnoticed, and these being not 10 seconds after opening the app? Two words people: proof read. And if you didnt notice that that is actually ONE word (proofread), then i dunno
What the hell! New update doesn't work. Track pad doesn't work, arrows don't work, constantly disconnects... why the hell would update if it was already working.
This app is a lie, it's not free. To navigate your streaming services it requires a $10 purchase or it's worthless.
Connects to TV fairly easily, but after that the power button does not work either ON or OFF. So why do I need this app if I still need OEM remote? Paid for premium version, that's $10 I'll probably not get back! Should have read that reviews 1st not after having these issues. Terrible app DO NOT BUY!
Canceled a free remote to sell a MoneyGrab remote nice going. Can't even get to tv settings with it. Not worth even free with the 9.99 for "special features". I'll just get a free one :).
This app was helpful to me when I needed it last night but now it's like it locked my damned phone or something! I can't use the swipe gestures to go back and exit out of it and even selecting a notification from my notifications to open another program does not work! Not sure what the hell you got going on in this app but I'm considering reporting this to Google because not cool.
Really? Numeric keyboard and App control is locked unless I pay for them? Free version should have ZERO ads then!
Overall, a nice app that can replace my LG Magic Remote but the developer introduced a major flaw in the last update. Called Favorites - don't use it. When you close this feature's screen, it will turn off your TV.
It worked when I first downloaded it, but for whatever reason it stopped working. The only button that works is the volume and Netflix button. Also the ads ruin it.
App freezes. Purchase is in a nutshell a bit of a robbery. App should be thoroughly tested before being sold. We should be ablectobtdstcall features for 24 hours after which the App should block what is supposed to be purchased. That way neither us nor Google commerce has to put up with refunds. Interesting app if it would work
works on lg 4k TV. bought the 9.99 lifetime. and just so you know this isn't a scam... I hate tomatoes and the love guru is an underrated comic genius that was forgotten.
V useful and graphically-pleasing basic app. Saved me big time when plastic remote stopped working and I couldn't change the TV input. Thanks!
Paid for premium as the basic app doesn't always work..even worse with premium..nothing works at all now ...waste of money and effort.
Had to buy this because my toddler split coffee on our remote, and I love it and it's one of the only remote apps that have work flawlessly for me. There is a lag when you first open the app, but no big deal for us.
Love it. We lost our remote and we have looked everywhere for it (even trash) with no luck. We couldn't turn it off because the LG is on our wall, pretty high and my 3 year old son had to go to bed. Thanks to this app, it's a lifesaver
Greedy. Can't even try the premium features before buying. Also the on off button is placed awkwardly so you will always click on it accidentally. Poor app
I installed this because I thought it would do something more than what my remote does but it doesn't seem to. I would like to know if I can do either a voice search or a type in search using this app because typing in characters and numbers with the remote is painful. Does the paid version of the app allow type in or voice search? If so sign me up! I just uninstalled it, it has no tactile feedback so it's actually harder to use than the real remote. and it pops up with annoying ads every time.
Ok not brilliant. Mostly does what it's supposed to, the exit button doesn't exit like the real tv remote though.
I understand now why it's rate is low. Once you've downloaded everything is fine.....then maybe two months later it will not sync to your tv. As if it has a hidden limited time usage on the app.
Have to buy to unlock a lot of features that I think most should be free. I will look elsewhere for a phone remote.
Absolutely awesome app, quick install, found TV almost instantly and works a treat thank you guys 😉👍😊
Awesome app I have been using this service for a couple of days now works great i purchased the premium it is well worth the price because you receive so much more benefits like the widget access and the instant buttons like for Netflix and prime and mostly all streaming services. I highly recommend if you are one of those people that lose your remote, even if you don't It is a great benefit to have.. Also great and fast customer service.
The app looks nice. I was really looking forward to using the all. It detected my tv easily but after I entered the pairing pin. It crashed. Each time I reopen, it crashes again after the ad.
I love this remote and yet even though it cost $7 for the premium Edition it's totally worth every penny I definitely recommend it for anybody that has had their remote damaged or lost for their LG TV.
it seems strange that you can access the apps but not navigate round them with a control pad without paying extra.
I have trialed many apps with much defeat! One last try and this awesome app blessed my day! This is a great app ads minimal. Thank you!
Lol I got this app because my remote was broken but when I saw that I needed to verify it on the television I noticed that this app was pointless. I put a three star review because idk if the app is good or bad
Stopped working the day i bought the full version of the program and now i can't add my tv to it .. today 18-12-2020 i updated the app .and I've been using it for 10 min now and it works perfectly until now..
way better than LG's own apps. they dont look nearly aa slick, doesn't have a dark theme and worst of all wake on lan doesn't work so no turning tv on over wifi (suppose to work but doesn't) this app is amazing and very responsive. the mini remote in the notification area is a life saver. And the wake on lan just works! 10 stars if i could! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
I paid so I could turn tv on and off. Doesn't work. Another product that doesn't do exactly what they say it does. Don't pay keep the free version. I will now get up to turn on my tv.......
When I first tried this app. I was not happy with it. It kept causing my wifi to disconnect and it wouldn't turn tv on. Well come to find out it wasn't the app , it was my router wasn't set properly. Now the app is the best one I have tried and I am very happy. Its an awesome app. I have an lg webos 3.0 model # 65. Uh6030 and it controls everything. I definitely give it 5 stars.
If I wanted to open an app with this I'd have to download the premium version of it, and for some reason whenever I tried to open a specific app it'd just tell me to get premium to use the 'Apps' function and for some reason play the movie that was in my Blu-Ray player.
I really don't understand why people give this application such a low rating. The application works much better than the original app. I am referring here to the application dedicated to LG TVs with Netcast os.
Responsive for most of the buttons but nothing for these developers to bost about and make false promises and assumptions. If you developers really want to woo the crowd let the world take it home for free at first for some time. Make it reasonable then offer a paid version afterwards.
Free version is a bit annoying due to ads, but what app isn't. I upgraded to premium since I have a couple LG Tvs at home and darn this thing works seamlessly for both. Nicely done.
Can't offer a "free" app (with ads) with most important features crippled to nothing unless €10 are paid for a premium upgrade, and expect a great review. At least offer a 7 day trial or something to let me evaluate the features that I might be willing to pay for if they work as advertised.
Good but can be temperamental would recommend. You need to have patience to work this. You also need 6.99 if you want premium. It's pretty good overall.
IMO it is the best app for LGs, better than LGs own. Would be 5* if the trackpad was usable. The tracking is way to imprecise and jerky compared to LG and even other third party apps. There's also no way to scroll when using it?? Would be nice if the keyboard was brought up automatically when clicking on a text box as with others as well. Everything else is pretty much perfect.
Uhh Where was the buttons again? Don't tell me this is button-hide and seek. It sucks and when I press my device I'm using it sits there. What kind of thing is this? Some kind of rip off trying to get you to play it? I think so. Edit this stat, cus I hate it!
Hello. I just bought this app so I can use trackpad feature. That was the only reason to buy it. But it doesn't work. Cursor is always on the middle of the screen and won't move. Just blinks when I try to move it. Overall, app is good but I am obviously not satisfied because I payed for the feature that doesn't work.Can you fix this or refund me?
