  • 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.

    Absolutely awesome. Laziness mode level 10 engaged. I can control my PC from the couch 10 feet away. Great app.

    This is an easy to use use app and has been trouble free. I can either use it to control a preset playlist or to remotely browse and play files from my PC or external drive. I have few complaints about it. I do wish that there were more video controls available without going to the main screen for that video and that one could see the progress of the video (much like Spotify does with music on their app), again, without going to the video main screen.

    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!!

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

    App is broken. Shows ads successfully but keeps showing "Reconnecting" and cannot get VLC to play. A waste of time. Try elsewhere.

    Too much ads, the app does not connect to pc till the ads are downloaded and displayed. Once the ads load, need to auto connect again, though details have not changed and on every subsequent lauch. While exiting the app, the full screen ad does not let the app close even after completely playing. Have to force close it. The issue is with only this app, other apps displaying ads work fine. Tried this on multiple devices. Much previous version was good, hence 2 stars, no such issues/compulsion.

    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.

    This app was great and works fairly well overall, but it displays an ad anytime I want to pause/play a movie and the ads cannot be closed. I then need to kill the entire app to get it working again. This makes it a real pain to use now.

    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.

    It's a nice app. Lot of features. Only it loses connection all the time. Restarting the app mostly fixes it. Controls aren't the most logic.

    App occasionally hangs on my android phone. Requires a hard reset. Otherwise would get 5 stars

    Holly molly it really works 😳😳😳. 4 star because of ads and all. Thank you

    The app works well, but it freezes or crashes when it plays the paid advertisement. Deal breaker if it dies or makes watching the actual video annoying from just the remote.
  • 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
  • Oct 29, 2020

    By Patrick Thomas
    App is great, but the ads are terrible. Honestly I almost uninstalled it instead of buying the premium simply because it's a despicable practice to make your app unusable with ads to coerce people into buying the premium.
  • 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.

    Very buggy, but still probably the best remote currently available.

    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.

    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... Update : The latest Windows companion is marked as Malware. Makes the mobile app. Unusable. Will ask for a refund.

  • found no In-app unlocked functions Oct 11, 2019

    By C2P1985
    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. 😢🤨😡
