I have had my TV for a number of years now. Since I got it, I have replaced the remote countless times due to damage and the buttons falling out. I was glad when I came across the Remote Control for TV app because this smart remote for Google Android has entirely solved my problem with remotes. Read on to understand why I love this app.
This Google Play app for TV control has a functional and straightforward interface. The smart remote is very easy to use. All you have to do is use it the same way you would use a conventional TV remote control. The design is also quite simple. It includes various buttons like volume control and channel changing which work without a hitch. 10/10.
This Android app has a number of useful features. First and foremost, it features home theatre control which allows you to control all your home theatre devices with ease. It also features navigation via IR which is supported by most of the old and new TVs. However, in order for this to work, you need to have an IR transmitter built in your TV so that the remote can work. All these features work together to make it easy for you to control your TV.
Remote Control for TV is only compatible with Android devices, which might be a problem if you own an iPhone since you will not be able to use it. 8/10.
Remote Control for TV has decent performance. It works how you would expect your regular TV remote to work. It supports over 20,000 home theatre devices but requires your TV to have an IR transmitter built in for it to work. Therefore, if your TV doesn’t have this feature, this app will be useless to you. 10/10.
Remote for TV is a free-to-download app, and it doesn’t include any in-app purchases. However, as with any free thing, there is a catch. The catch in this app is that you will have to deal with a plethora of ads. There are ads with almost every click you make on the remote. However, this doesn’t interfere with the remote’s performance in any way so it shouldn’t raise a lot of concern.
Remote for TV is an app I use on a daily basis to change channels on my TV. I like that I do not always have to use the TV remote that came with my TV because sometimes I can’t even find it. However, since my phone is always with me, I can easily use it. If you are in search of an excellent smart remote for your TV, this is the app to get. However, I would suggest you do some research to find out if it will work with your TV before getting it. If it is not compatible with your TV, you might end up wasting your time downloading it. Get the latest version of this leading app on Google Play Store. Make sure you update the app from time to time so that you can take advantage of the latest features and improvements.
