    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

  • 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.

    Great App for remote controlling your Macbook with VLC and common streaming clients. The free version is already great but unlocking the extra features was worth every cent. Love it!

    Works perfect so far with premium ($6) version. Will update later if it that changes. But yeah, has all the options I would want.

    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!!

    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.

    Unlock more stars for the low low price of $0.99 for the first two and $2.99 for the last two and spend even more after that!

  • 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.

    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.

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

    Pretty good app, but it has some connection issues sometimes and the controls don't work from the lockscreen. I haven't found an option to remain connected while the screen is off, but I also haven't looked that hard.

    This is great. For $7 I can control all my media from my bed. Now if only I could get the audio to play out of my phone so I wouldn't have to make the volume so loud

    wish this app would just focus on vlc and not media, mouse, qwhatever etc. Will connect to vlc without their server app. Server app is dumb anyway, can never tell if it is saving settings or not

    Hmmm. 3 stars, bc it *technically* works, but not smoothly. It took a few attempts and restarts to get it to work even most of the time. It stops a lot and also disconnects, shows you an ad and then has to reconnect before (hopefully) regaining control. Why? The power button does nothing. It was easier just to control it from the laptop. I had to get up more to get this to work and it was an ordeal. I'll give it another shot later to see if its worth keeping but so far, it looks doubtful.

    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.

    Terrible UI with a lot of missing features, like being able to control render/casting. Seriously, the UI layout is awful. I hope they update it since I purchased the App, but for everyone else it should be a hard pass.

    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. 😢🤨😡

  • 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.
