    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.

  • The BEST VLC Remote May 11, 2020

    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.

    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!

    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 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!!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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.

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

    Great tool to have. I can be anywhere in my home and control the settings, play back and so forth of my desktop vlc player from my phone. I took one star away because once in a while it'll disconnect or sometimes vlc player itself will just stop playing the content and I have to reboot vlc player. There are a few ads but I paid to remove them. Solid app.

    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.

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

    Update: I had to restore the app to gain access to the premium upgrade I paid for premium but still only have basic version
  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

    It has great potential but stability is big issue, when it works it is fine but randomly it just refuses to show your vlc controls. Also full screen does not work as it also randomly disconnects from vlc.

    Works well most of the time. Really wish you would add the ability to delete files. Edit (Feb. 2021): Previous review was for Android 10 on a Pixel XL (original). This review is on a Pixel 4a with 5G. The number of bugs with this app has SIGNIFICANTLY increased with Android 11. It does not remember a home folder, it does not pause video when a phone call is received, it cannot switch back to the list if movies/shoes to watch. This last bug makes the app nearly unusable. Just awful.

  • 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. 😢🤨😡
