Decent remote

Needs improvement but overall it does do its job and then some but fast forward doesnt work or the power button

Doesnt work.

Waste of money, sorry to say. Doesnt work at all, the directions take you to setting which dont exist on the Directv Genie I have. Good thing its only .99

This app not worth a dollar

The app presents easy but does nos funtion. Does not work... Not worth a penny

Great Remote

Found receivers automatically and I really like using swipe gestures to navigate the DirecTV guide!

No support

I have had this app for over a year and it worked great until OS 9 came out and it does not work in OS 9. When I emailed support the email address is not valid therefore this app is no longer supported or maintained.


Dont buy just keep looking for your remote


The worst app I have ever purchased will not find my receivers manually input IP still doesnt work followed all troubleshooting help doesnt work wish there was a refund button!
