  • Very good implementation-1 flaw Feb 6, 2020

    Some controls could be more intuitive. Very often when opening through the app it won’t pop in front of all the windows on the screen

    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.

    The unpaid version has so many ads that it is completely unusable. However the full version of the app is not too expensive, and is a really great little tool. Well worth it IMO

    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!!

    Very Useful minus some glitches here and there, but overall much better user interface and usefulness of features than similar apps. I find myself having to closeout and restart the app often when I return to the app and want to browse my files to pick a different movie. I have to close and restart but I'm thinking that's because it has to reconnect to VLC but instead of doing so it freezes unfortunately. Overall though, very well done guys! I love this app!

    This is a great app, it works as promised. If I had one suggestion it would to add split screen support for the iPad.

    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.

    I have been using a cheep a cheep keyboard and mouse as a remote when it broke i bought the paid version of this app and i dont regret it at all!! Just start VMR on your pc and you can control everything from the app! Their is no noticeable input lag and the app is fast and snapping. The paid version also include the option of using your phone as a touch pad and using your phone keyboard to type on your PC. Absolutely worth it ! 10/10

    Best media app I have used yet hit a few snags getting it to work but well worth the extra time

    Great app, but if you forget to turn it off, it overloads your CPU and overheats your system. Especially bad when you're recharging. I once left it on overnight while recharging and my whole Tablet was so hot, I could barely touch it. Would be great if the process would shut itself down if idle for a while.

  • Scummy business practices Oct 30, 2017

    By Euronymouse
    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.

    Completely unusable. Opens ad everything I touch screen. Then I can't close ad. But they expect me to pay for this?
  • 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.

    Can't connect even with VRM connect software.
  • Mar 26, 2021

    By Arien Crossby
    I've used this app for years, but as of the last update it suddenly stopped working. I get "could not find VLC" every time I try to connect to my PC. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling both VLC and the connect app (VLC Mobile on the Android side and VMR Connect on the PC side) multiple times, as well as manual setup, and it still claims it can't connect, even though VLC Mobile finds my computer right away. Not sure what's changed, but I'm very frustrated.
  • Not there yet Oct 16, 2019

    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.

    Doesn’t work at all. No connection to my iPhone and makes my iPad crash... iPad app runs until I open the program on my laptop, then crashes iPad. If I run the program on my laptop first and then open the app on ipad, the iPad crashes immediately. Worthless
  • found no In-app unlocked functions Oct 11, 2019

    Already paid for entire in-app unlocked features of the most recent updated app. But still can’t locate or get access to any of the new premium features that described on the developer home page. 😢🤨😡

    Don't be cheap. Support the apps you love. How long will you be a freebie junkie? If it helps you even once, then support the developer. Nobody likes to burn blood and sweat and not get paid. The developer will not say this, so I'll say it for them. Thank you for this awesome app. I use this will using my exercise bike to watch lectures. FYI : I purchased lifetime access.

    I want to thank VLC for being the number one media player since day one. Iv been using you on a daily basis for prob 15 sweet years . No other media player comes close. When You had files that wouldn't play VLC was always there to play all media files which is why Its the best and I still use it 15 years later.

  • Premium payment didn’t upgrade app Feb 22, 2019

    By Wclamber
    Update: I had to restore the app to gain access to the premium upgrade I paid for premium but still only have basic version
  • Apr 23, 2021

    By Jay Gibson
    The ads are annoying but I get it. My main criticism is how bad this overloads the cpu and drains the battery like crazy. I left the app up with my phone untouched for 2 hours and my battery was at 57 percent (from a full charge) and the phone was hot.
  • Like the versatility May 29, 2018

    By kajunwolf
    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.

    VMR features are super annoying and in the way. I probably hit a BMR button about a thousand times. Every time I have to deal with the pop up. Also, can't share YouTube App links to the app and have it play on desktop.

    Way too many ads in the free version. Almost unusable. If I'm resuming playback, the last thing I want is some unskippable 10 second ad to play while the movie is on. You're not getting my money, greedy devs.

    The description specifically states, "With this VLC Remote App, You don't need to install any software on your PC". However, the first screen after installing this app tells you to go to a website to download and install software on your PC.
  • This application does not work Jan 29, 2020

    By Niokolo66
    I purchased the application features at $5.99. Anytime I want to use the app it does not connect and asking me to purchase the keys again. I tried restore but not working . I feel this is a waste of money. I will try the other application.
