    The app works well, until an ad comes out, then I can't click on the X and the ad is just stuck there. Sometimes the 5 seconds countdown doesn't even work, it just gets stuck at 5 seconds while the app is still playing. Only way to stop it is force close of the app. Please fix this issue.

  • The BEST VLC Remote May 11, 2020

    By Colby347
    I've used this app on other platforms for months and it does everything I need it to with a modern UI and nice premium features that don't take away from the core functions. Setup is very in depth and simple to understand. I was so happy to find this app after digging through old VLC remote apps I had paid for that broke or free versions of others that stopped being updated and didn't work anymore or had a horribly ugly UI. This is THE app for controlling VLC from an iOS device. Note: if the app crashes after installing and trying to setup the first time just reboot your phone. I had a small issue with that at the very beginning but i rebooted and the app worked perfectly.

    An excellent app. To date I have not had a problem with the feature I use which is to control VLC on a Windows 10 powered PC. Windows users: It may be tricky to set up for a computer novice. Instructions are good, yet if you are not using Windows firewall in favour of another program it may be difficult if the associated documents are not up to standard.

    Really useful program as a remote for controlling your VLC media player. Not difficult to set up and most of the time works very well. Occasionally I run into a problem or I can't connect to a machine and have to restart VLC on the machine to fix the issue. So worth installing and using, I believe the issue is not this app and likely related to VLC player or Windows 10 (Pro).

  • Great app Jun 4, 2019

    By Hotsauce 1O1
    I bought the ad free version of this only and it worked great for a few months. It then got updated and had ads. I was extremely upset about it and contacted the developer. They quickly responded by saying to reinstall the app and then go to the “purchase page” in the app and select “restore” and it worked. No more ads! I’m very happy now as this was my favorite VLC remote. Thank you!!

    Paid for the full features, but the app was not working so I decided to reinstall to see if that would fix it. Now it wants me to pay $9.99 a second time. Other than that, it is a fine app but If they cannot get that fixed, I am going to have to get my money back as the app did not start having issues until after I paid for it.

    I had this app, and bought the premium features, and it was a decent, perfectly serviceable app. Then the developer added incredibly intrusive advertising in an update, with an additional in-app purchase required to disable them. Seriously, just imagine: it's a remote control, and periodically you will completely lose its functionality because it gets hijacked by a full-screen ad that has sound on by default. Is there ever a situation in which you'd be using a remote control app and suddenly having a loud, stupid ad play *wouldn't* be hella annoying? And does anyone really think it's okay to completely break an app for paying customers with this sort of nonsense? Yeah, I guess I could pay the additional $2 to get rid of ads, but you know what? I'd rather give that money to a developer who hadn't already proven themself to be a swindler. Hobbyist Software has one that looks good.

  • It's a literal pay to play. Mar 6, 2019

    By Niko11as
    Set up was well explained and easy. Once set up was complete I went to test it out and hit play. That’s when I discovered that you can’t test it. You have to buy to play even a single song. If the app has zero functionality without purchase then just ask me to purchase it upfront. Don’t make me waste my time getting it set up. Enable a 24 hour trial to explore the feature set up before purchase. I don’t expect people to give useful stuff away for free but it’s customary for software to have a trial and test period. Coming at me shady like that does not inspire confidence and I’m not buying it without being able to check the functionality. I don’t even know if it will play a song yet.

    Advertising hell! I know some advertising is necessary, but this aggressive strategy of covering the entire screen, such that the app cannot be used, and forcing the user to wait before the add can be dismissed is simply disrespectful and contemptuous of users.

    I had an issue with the slider feature on a past update, but a later update ultimately resolved it. Works great with VLC. I highly recommend.

    The ad is so annoying,but the worst thing is that I cannot stop it and close, even after the ad is ended. It's just freezes and I have to kill the app. Samsung S8 plus.

    Happy to pay the 6 GBP but the key feature missing is the "Playback / Render" function of VLC! When I am sitting on my couch, I still need to get up and manually select this option from the PC. Kind of defies the purpose of the all app...

    I love the versatility, however I purchased this some time back when I had my windows phone. I have moved to a iPhone and I try to restore, but restore does nothing.

    Excellent addition to what seemed to be a lost cause after the interface change. Still cannot work my Apple Watch to control the VLC of my iPhone which connect to the Apple TV. Feature that was most useful to me before the update...

  • VLC 3.0 support? May 1, 2019

    By f locus
    This doesn’t appear to be fully working with VLC 3.0. There are no controls for selecting renderer to cast to a device and the controls for volume and selecting the next track don’t work. Also the app does not go to the next track automatically in a playlist.
