Garbage I say!
Great so far!!

How do you use it?

Poor initial experience
It works

Loaded it and it doesn’t work
Bad

Doesn’t seem to work
Nothing works
by dpmccabe on 2019/11/21 01:06
No hosts found and edit button is unclickable. Sybu works fine, however, so this app is simply defective.
Aye

Works for what I need!
Great Remote

by Audioslaved28 on 2019/10/25 05:10
Could have more settings built into the phone. Subtitle menu or changing audio.
Works Great Expect for the Clicking Sound
by AliTurnMeUp on 2019/10/22 20:12
The app works great but the clicking sound is really annoying. Can you please remove it in the next update
Great!
by Selekah on 2019/10/21 03:15
Works as advertised.
Good kodi remote

It’s good so far we will see how well it last
Great graphics user interface!

Quick response!
Does what I need it to
by kodiremoteuser on 2019/10/13 21:23
I used to use features that were removed in the latest update. Not sure why those decisions were made. The newest version provides very basic remote control functionality
Initial impressions
by anievoios on 2019/10/06 10:30
Out of the box the official Kodi remote has far more features. However it is in desperate need of an UI update. This remote looks nice and has some layout choices that I prefer over the official. The main one being a volume control on the main remote screen. I look forward to trying out all the features.
Good
by Miscde on 2019/09/18 02:05
Not bad but it seems to be missing a few features
Nice Kodi Remote, However.
by Sparky_WI on 2019/09/15 16:21
Nice remote works perfectly just can't turn off the sound for the remote functions. When you move around all you hear are these loud click sounds. Quiet annoying that you can't turn off the remote sounds.
Nice
by KK1494 on 2019/09/12 00:11
Very good app , sometimes tricky to pair but very nice
I just wish it worked

Good controller for Kodi
by Scooter93292 on 2019/09/08 23:52
Good controller for kodi. Simple design but very effective.
Not very good
by FrankGrimes42 on 2019/09/08 16:15
First off it makes massively loud clicks on button presses EVEN WHEN YOUR DEVICE IS MUTED OR HAS VOLUME ALL THE WAY DOWN. HOW STUPID IS THAT.!?!?!.,? Controls don’t work the way literally every single other Kodi remote works. “Fast forward” doesn’t fast forward, but skips 30sec intervals?.?.??”?.?.!?!”l)*(&:38575)$(*(/“!?,?! THIS DEV NEEDS TO STOP PUBLISHING APPS
How do you review app before using it?
by DiDamon on 2019/09/07 19:27
Before ever using this, how can I possibly write a review? When I open the app on my phone, only blank server lines appear. We’ll see if it come up after writing a review.
Best available
by No one receiving on 2019/08/23 07:33
This is in my experience the best available Kodi remote app. I still relay on others that do a couple of things ore easily or intuitively. I also don’t like having to switch between the “Remote” and “Now Playing” interfaces. It’s not awful, but those would better if integrated into a single interface. Still, I like it better than any other Kodi app.
Works
by rayng86 on 2019/08/18 00:35

Not discovering
by propertyjoe on 2019/08/17 02:16
Dead end screen. Not discovering.
So far so good
by NixToPPro on 2019/08/14 16:02
Easy setup and it identified Kodi immediately. Looking forward to digging into all its features.
Can’t connect
by stopchargingme on 2019/08/13 18:21
I try to hit the edit button on the app and it won’t don’t anything. I’m very frustrated
Can’t connect
by SpankDungz on 2019/08/13 03:29
Can’t connect to Kodi. Read that if you leave a review, it will help. I will come back later after trying.
No remote
by Cchoclatethunder on 2019/08/11 18:18
I downloaded the app and the icon appeared but I click on it and it opens up blank!! I’m so confused. I had to delete it I hope I wasn’t charged anything
I love this app, but the audio is way too loud
by ZQ8 Blazer on 2019/08/11 01:52
This is by far the best Kodi remote, but the clicking sound is extremely loud, I wish there was a way to adjust it other than putting my phone on silent.
Do I have review to use?
by ding0hh on 2019/08/04 23:47
Asking for a friend.
Minimalistic
by Dreaming Teacher on 2019/08/04 16:29
UI is not as good as other free apps. Works with http no problem. Google how to configure Kodi server for remote “control” if you have problems.
Review to use?
by jrm39820 on 2019/08/02 21:44
What?? I have to review before I can use most features?
Doesn’t work.
by Karl1982 on 2019/07/28 16:56
Official Kodi remote works fine. This one doesn’t even see it and has no option to manually add.
Your App Stop Working Altogether Now
by Dr. O-Thug on 2019/07/28 15:31
The app used to work perfectly before now. My laptop is still set up perfect to allow the remote function and now it says it cannot find the device which is complete fabrication. I don’t know what you did to destroy your app, but it is clearly broken to pieces. I tried to delete and and redone load and yet it’s still screwed beyond repair. Please let me know you are going to do to fix this altercation.
Looks Promising..But
by Lyon ArtZ on 2019/07/18 01:30
We shall see
Alright
by Fykfjkxaiphfxhejl on 2019/07/17 19:43
Its ok
Works well
by HiSPL on 2019/07/17 17:56
Found my osmc box right away. Basic functions work well. I wish I could turn off the clicky noises, but so far haven’t figured that out.
Amazing app
by Gvkhfgif on 2019/07/17 02:19
Very well done. Sometimes it is slow to connect to my Kodi none the less is perfect
kodi remote
by Chixonus on 2019/07/03 04:41
Very easy to use app, has a great layout for any kodi user. i have used many kodi remote alternatives before but this is the best
Solid
by DonBrutto on 2019/06/14 01:21
It seems to work pretty well. It’s pretty responsive to. I use Yates on my android devices and they don’t have a version for apple products. Its pretty nice.
Limited features in 2.0 release
by Juancito!!! on 2019/05/24 23:01
This is NOT a full featured Kodi remote app, per the App description info above. Developer needs to update this App description and screenshots as the new 2.x update brings a simplified, limited, basic interface. I hope they bring the original features back in future releases.
Fake App
by Dachinno on 2019/05/05 11:47
These are all fake reviews - if you read them you’ll see that some of them are not even related to Kodi. I downloaded it and can’t add a host, so it is worthless.
Ok on my MacBook/Amazon Fire stick
by Jaykidd13 on 2019/04/28 14:07
Doesn't work on my Windows desktop though
Noisy Clicking
by D_iPhone01 on 2019/04/24 02:49
How is it not possible to toggle the audible remote “clicking” off? Otherwise, seems functional enough.
Way to clicky !
by psergiu on 2019/03/20 00:20
Developer - please add a option to control key click volume ! Even a on/off option would suffice. I’ll update my review to 5 stars and i bet more people will do the same. Thank you !
Good
by Ethan LaRue on 2019/03/17 12:46
Good good good
I can’t see any of my music files on the remote.
by Sloindian on 2019/03/08 19:56
I can’t see any of my music files on the remote. Needs to have Kodi running on a screen to see what you’re doing. Not sure I like that!
Works great
by Ojib2U on 2019/03/07 00:26
So far this Kodi remote app is working really well with my Sony Android TV that I have Kodi installed on. I’m running Kodi version 18.1 and it connects quickly and no problems running it. Very simple to use and dose every thing you need to do for running Kodi. Very pleased so far...
It’s just OK
by Element18592 on 2019/03/05 21:15
This app is basic. You can move up, down left, right. And of course the standard Kodi shortcuts are included. This app is mediocre. It works for how it was intended but there are no real features. Even without the lack of features it’s still a useable alternative to the official, however the reason I’ll be deleting it after this review is the god awful clicking sounds it makes that can’t even be disabled via the “settings” page, or lack there of.
Does NOT work + No app support
by 2wire426 on 2019/03/04 19:13
Upon launch of this app (using ios 12.1.4), the screen immediately goes to a msg screen saying: • No saved host • No host discovered There is no option to change any settings from this page, and you cannot access any other page. Changing every option for the app thru the phone’s settings also does nothing. The link to the developer on this App Store page takes you to a web page for their media player where there is no information for this app at all, and no link to contact them there either. Pretty sad and disappointing because their media player app is quite good. I would give zero stars if I could. DO NOT BOTHER WITH THIS APP! They obviously do not care about it, and do not want to be bothered with supporting it!
Won’t discover my kodi

Such a nicely designed Kodi Remote
by Vigorblade on 2019/02/17 09:44
I was hesitant to switch from another remote that I was using, but then decided to give this one a try, It’s one of my favorite remotes now.
Apple to android?
by Moneywannaa on 2019/02/07 22:25
I’m not sure yet but it seems everyone has been talking about apple to apple devices. So I hope when I get home apple to android doesn’t let me down. Wish me luck. My big question will be does it use WiFi of Bluetooth for connectivity?
Good app
by CrackedPepper86 on 2019/01/21 00:45
Very responsive, easy to set up.
Works fine, but cannot disable sound from app
by gpanders on 2019/01/13 18:08
The remote part of the app makes an awful, loud clicking sound, and there is no way to disable it (without disabling sound on your phone entirely). It is very annoying. Functionally it works fine, but the inability to disable the sound from the app is a pretty major design flaw.
Simple and elegant
by Goody the Good on 2019/01/12 01:19
The shortcomings of the standard Kodi remote are it is ugly and complicated. This app looks nicer and is dead simple. Maybe too simple. Also it clicks. Not sure why this is. Remotes haven’t clicked since the 1980s. So this is very much like using the standard Kodi, slimmed down, and made prettier. It does also seem a little faster. But I wish it were smarter and hadn’t just sort of copied the standard layout. For instance I should be able to turn subtitles on and off with one tap, where there is only one subtitle stream. I should be able to switch audio with one tap where there are only two streams. That’s the right kind of simplicity.
Didn't work
by Ss1101md on 2019/01/07 20:08
Just gives an empty set with no way to manually add a host.
Don’t update if you can avoid
by Me111977 on 2019/01/03 03:45
This app was by far the better of the Kodi remotes. That is until a recent update removed the ability to search through your library. It now seems to be nothing more than a simple remote with no functionality. Not sure why it was done, but in my opinion, it was a huge mistake.
Basic, but it works
by Imchillen on 2018/12/22 23:05
Many of the features advertised either don’t exist, or are hard enough to find that I haven’t found them yet. It works as a basic remote, but everything else is missing.
Review
by lifgts on 2018/12/22 20:08
Seems great so far. Writing this to access the other advertised features
After update missing lot of features
by MikeshCZ on 2018/12/18 19:21
After last update I am missing lot of features. Now I cannot browse my library on phone and then just play it. Lame!
Version 2 removes features
by AdamZegelin on 2018/12/18 04:44
Version 2 removes many features, including the ability to browse the library on your phone. The screenshots show the old version.
Where’d all the features go?
by SnoPir8 on 2018/11/22 15:19
This used to be the best Kodi remote app out there but the recent update stripped all the power features. Now it’s just a basic play/pause remote like the dozen other apps out there.
Nicely uncluttered...
by Scott Strungis on 2018/11/20 02:00
Tried a few of these remotes under iOS. The lack of ads is a welcome thing here. No clutter on basic functionality is also great. The forced review for unlocked options is a bit much.
Horrible update
by rainkid2 on 2018/11/18 06:17
Put control and Now Playing on a single screen. This update is absolutely terrible.
Terrible Update
by Kadeschs on 2018/11/18 03:41
2.0 update undid everything that set this app apart from many of the others. Now just another typical button replacer. Don’t go by the preview pics shown here either. They are from the previous version when this app was good. Will be uninstalling.
Don’t bother
by Moxtrox on 2018/11/17 23:40
Latest update removed some essential features and basically crippled the app. Now it’s just a dumb remote with play, pause, directional buttons and not much else. Legacy version of this app offers much more, althoug in a severly outdated UI.
Went from the best to the worst.
by Devin Lawrence on 2018/11/17 17:27
With a single update, the developers have removed every single feature of value to an invested Kodi user. No longer can you browse your library via the app, control crucial playback options, or in general having anything other than a couple of arrows and a start/stop,enter/esc capability. Huge disappointment.
V2 removed functionality
by wh0rfin on 2018/11/17 04:46
Used to be very useful Now has almost no utility, even less functionality in 2.0.1 than 2! The images in the App Store show functionality no longer available in current version Avoid
Beautiful
by The Nerd On A Budget. on 2018/11/17 01:20
No, i wasn’t asked to write a review. This app is seamless, and beautiful. The buttons are in a good order. Works well with raspberry pi running OSMC. Anything you would expect. Plus it’s free. I normally don’t write reviews. But this was so good that I had too.
Terrible Update
by switch2018 on 2018/11/16 23:05
Go back to the previous version please. This recent update ruins the app. Lacking features severely
Hrm??
by Tomi2gun on 2018/11/16 04:53
The update removed features... I don’t see what was added? Why would you make the app worse? Still works as a generic remote 👍🏻
Great App!!!
by Moy Wah Fei on 2018/10/25 04:38
Love the interface!
Great initially
by Dirk_the_Diggler on 2018/10/24 04:58
I’ve been using this app for over a year and it had been fantastic. After the recent update to v2.0, several features I utilized (mainly the icon that brought play options in a drop down from the player) have been removed. While the interface is great for those who upload things to Kodi, for us that stream and enjoy subtitles, offsets, and volume amplification settings.... This is lacking severely now. I even emailed the developer about the issue and received no response about the issue. Two weeks and no response so far. Overall, it’s still a decent remote for Kodi... I just can’t stand the new update.
Rev 2.0
by Pogo57 on 2018/10/20 23:56
Long time user of this app. Don’t like many of the changes to the new interface. Really the only thing that I do like is the addition of volume control to the “remote” page. I think that I’m going to switch to the app that is/was very similar to this app. Wish I could downgrade to the previous version.
This remote is awesome
by V2White on 2018/10/02 01:35
Love using it. It is simple and easy to use.
Figuring out how to work this app

“Add Host” option missing, so currently broken
by juice_money on 2018/06/02 20:53
There should be an “add host” button on the bottom left in order to enter the set it up, but it’s missing. The “edit” button on the bottom left doesn’t do anything either...so it’s impossible to make this work (at least in this version of the app, and the latest version of iOS on an iPhone X).
Cannot add host
by onetiger_ on 2018/05/31 19:19
useless, Cannot add host, “edit” does nothing
Great but...
by OdysseusRex on 2018/05/27 23:39
WAD but how do you turn off that annoying button clicking noise? And how do you add a device manually when it doesn’t auto detect one? Haven't found it yet.
Excellent!
by nwo1972 on 2018/05/22 05:04
So easy to set up and use. Thank you for this app!!

Lets see how good it is...
by IhaveNothingBetterToDo on 2018/05/15 02:11
They told me to leave a review of this app and they’d give me the Pro version free. I haven't used yet so I’ll come back and update after I try out Pro Version. I like the free version. I like the dark theme, clean easy to read fonts and easy to navigate menus.
Better UI than Official Remote.
by ZeroDrek on 2018/05/09 19:55
The UI is nice and updated in this app. Other than that it’s almost just like the Official Kodi Remote. My only suggestion: Change the Android-esque app icon with the drop shadow.
Clever Review Scheme
by TcRonin on 2017/08/10 03:33
Somewhat impressed by the idea to make you write a review in order to use features. The rating in the app is what made me choose it, but then require a review for the free upgrade? Of course ppl are gonna write good things. We'll see how this goes when I upgrade and what value it brings. Until then, I doesn't find or do anything for me. Can't edit the servers like I want to. Hopefully this upgrade will "unlock" that feature. Here we go...

Saved me time
by _Tyson_ on 2017/11/01 00:06
I tried using the remote that came with my Kodi box but it was lacking in the keyboard department as well as response, with this app I am able to search faster with less effort that I was able to do previously. Definitely a must for box users that do not want to buy a new remote or for PC users that wish to have a more ha dis free experience on their PC when it is connected to a tv or projector.
Well Made App
by Dylan Hull on 2017/10/04 02:42
While I am unfamiliar with how Cody works on iOS devices, I was confident that it will designed and will develop dedication like this could help me figure out how to get it working as far as being able to stream content to my new Chomecast. I have read that this is possible -- it's just a matter of figuring it out, which leaves me feeling much more hopeful than I otherwise would be.
I don’t usually write reviews.
by J. Rollans on 2017/09/23 05:40
So far I am indeed digging this app quite a bit. Honestly I think it’s interesting that they give you the upgrade for leaving a review. I don’t really have a problem with it! App is speedy and does exactly what I want it too; I’ve had a couple random disconnects here and there, but that could be more poor overworked Raspberry Pi. Either way, no big deal to just connect again!
Better than others
by Justineg87 on 2017/11/18 04:12
I’ve had some pretty bad luck with other apps. Between disconnections from servers and having to restart or reconfigure my settings thinking it was my computer. I would have to close out kodi in the computer and restart it for it to reconnect to the remote. I really enjoy the amount of features on this app and hope it grows. Thank you :)
Best so far
by Smokingjoejr on 2017/09/02 19:20
I've tried quite a few Kodi Remote apps and so far this is the best one. I don't know what the pro version will do but without the pro version I've been using it for months with no problem. I'll probably write another review once I see what the upgraded version does different. I am also writing this review just to get rid of the little red box that floats around everywhere.
Works well
by Defrezus on 2017/08/13 18:39
Although I've had the app on my phone for a long time, it was only recently that I decided to start using it so I can have my laptop connected to my TV and hang out on the couch. I would say it takes a little bit a learning to smoothly operate it outside of the basic features but it's definitely worth the effort.
I’m impressed!
by Beezermigs on 2017/12/09 16:37
Let’s face it, Kodi can be buggy and confusing. And using a third party remote can make things even more confusing and annoying. This Kodi remote makes everything feel like it should. I sometimes think I’m using my TV instead, it’s that reliable and responsive. If you use Kodi, you want this remote app. That is all.

Kodi Remote App
by RavenRamon on 2017/12/03 17:07
This is the best Kodi remote I've tried this far. It's fast, responsive, and user friendly. The other Kodi remote apps that I've tried have had poor connectivity issues and I had for kill the app and restart so many times. This new app is much more dependable and also a time saver when searching for movies. Thanks for the App!
Great!
by BABIEGURL619 on 2017/10/17 03:50
Of all Kodi remotes, this one works great! Only downfall is when using the search engine to look for a title, the connection between the two does not always work very well and seems to not be connected. Other than that, it’s a great remote and seems more user friendly than some others I have used.

The integration and design are both a great addition to my desktop controls. The visuals are nice and so far it has been an easy tool to get the hang of. The setup was fairly simple, especially if you have even just a little experience in setting up wifi tablet controllers.
It’s just OK
by Element18592 on 2019/03/05 21:15
This app is basic. You can move up, down left, right. And of course the standard Kodi shortcuts are included. This app is mediocre. It works for how it was intended but there are no real features. Even without the lack of features it’s still a useable alternative to the official, however the reason I’ll be deleting it after this review is the god awful clicking sounds it makes that can’t even be disabled via the “settings” page, or lack there of.
Works very well, have had any problems
by Derp3212 on 2017/10/12 04:24
I run kodi on a raspberry pi and this remote works perfectly for it, I have had no issues from the remote and any problems I have had have come from the pi itself. I highly recommend this app if you are looking for a solid and clean remote for your setup.
Kodi remote app
by Robbymat on 2017/12/29 00:56
This was a convenient alternative to having to purchase a new remote. Worked as it was supposed to and being able to use my own phone added a familiar element. I found it much easier to use than the Firestick Remote I was using prior to downloading this app.
So far so good!
by SirAli on 2017/12/08 09:44
I didn’t have any deal breaker issues with this app. This is the third kodi app I’m downloading from the app store. It was very fast in discovering my kodi machine ( contrary to the previous ones!). Also the app combined the remote control function and library feature in one package.
I must be doing something wrong?
by WelshWizard11 on 2017/09/09 03:48
This app used to work great, but now for some unknown reason I cant get my Kodi to allow remote via HTTP. I keep getting "request failed" error when selecting the radio button. So, that said, I assume this app should still be gold for any system that will allow for outside remote control.
Pro update for review
by Saving savvy mom on 2017/09/04 06:50
As others have mentioned the Pro version is offered as long as you leave a review. I'm not very experienced in Kodi but am learning fast and the app seems easy to move throughout. Will update review with more once I have more experience with the app.
Does NOT work + No app support
by 2wire426 on 2019/03/04 19:13
Upon launch of this app (using ios 12.1.4), the screen immediately goes to a msg screen saying: • No saved host • No host discovered There is no option to change any settings from this page, and you cannot access any other page. Changing every option for the app thru the phone’s settings also does nothing. The link to the developer on this App Store page takes you to a web page for their media player where there is no information for this app at all, and no link to contact them there either. Pretty sad and disappointing because their media player app is quite good. I would give zero stars if I could. DO NOT BOTHER WITH THIS APP! They obviously do not care about it, and do not want to be bothered with supporting it!
Lets see how good it is...
by IhaveNothingBetterToDo on 2018/05/15 02:11
They told me to leave a review of this app and they’d give me the Pro version free. I haven't used yet so I’ll come back and update after I try out Pro Version. I like the free version. I like the dark theme, clean easy to read fonts and easy to navigate menus.
Nice Kodi Remote, However.
by Sparky_WI on 2019/09/15 16:21
Nice remote works perfectly just can't turn off the sound for the remote functions. When you move around all you hear are these loud click sounds. Quiet annoying that you can't turn off the remote sounds.
So far so good!!
by TheOnlyJamesThatMatters on 2017/09/12 02:01
I haven't had long to test yet but I love how it connects to wifi and from there it's ready to go! Only issue so far is I can't find a pause button (on the remote from what I see). But I'm still getting to know the app. Overall great app!!
Initial impressions
by anievoios on 2019/10/06 10:30
Out of the box the official Kodi remote has far more features. However it is in desperate need of an UI update. This remote looks nice and has some layout choices that I prefer over the official. The main one being a volume control on the main remote screen. I look forward to trying out all the features.
Rev 2.0
by Pogo57 on 2018/10/20 23:56
Long time user of this app. Don’t like many of the changes to the new interface. Really the only thing that I do like is the addition of volume control to the “remote” page. I think that I’m going to switch to the app that is/was very similar to this app. Wish I could downgrade to the previous version.
It saved my time
by Awsomeguy178 on 2017/10/16 11:42
I have been always using the control through traditional remote over WiFi but now with this app it saves a lot of time specially when searching for a movie name.
Review
by james phariss on 2017/11/26 06:11
Seems to be a decent app so far a little slow on finding out how to link the controller hopefully it doesn't disconnect as often as other Kodiak controller apps. Will come back to edit review once used for at least a week for a solid review. 🤔👍
Your App Stop Working Altogether Now
by Dr. O-Thug on 2019/07/28 15:31
The app used to work perfectly before now. My laptop is still set up perfect to allow the remote function and now it says it cannot find the device which is complete fabrication. I don’t know what you did to destroy your app, but it is clearly broken to pieces. I tried to delete and and redone load and yet it’s still screwed beyond repair. Please let me know you are going to do to fix this altercation.
Works good, looks better
by Carlwithayj on 2017/09/27 20:49
This remote seems to be as good as the official remote app. The main remote view looks cleaner and it seems to function a big snappier. I’m writing this review to get rid of the red box that follows you until you do.
I really like the Kodi...
by Wjll40 on 2017/09/15 06:10
In order to view anything I think I have to review. I have really been enjoying the Kodi on my firestick. I'm hoping this app will let me look up movies to see if they are available to stream, and which add on to use.
Simple and intuitive to use.
by balzacq on 2017/11/06 04:44
I run Kodi on a Raspberry Pi, and it’s very convenient to use this remote on my phone, which I always have handy, rather than yet another remote on my coffee table or pulling out the keyboard attached to the Pi across the room.
First glance
by Joe Bob Briggs 2nd cousin on 2017/10/21 12:26
Discovered Kodi renderer quickly and worked well for pause/play and fast forward. Rewind was a problem. The problem could well be that my media server (UMS on Linux) does not support rewind. I will test later with a movie from Stream Hub.
App with the highest rating !
by Phantomsubset on 2017/09/02 23:07
I just got the app because of the highest ratings. You do get an upgrade to the Pro version for a review so here goes. Hopefully I do get the full version after this. I look forward to using this app.
Nicely
by Cheerios Kid on 2017/11/30 01:52
Great app for the money and I don’t need a lot of time to waste money and not get to know each one more then you can do it for the next one or more then you can play with you can do not play the game
Beautiful
by The Nerd On A Budget. on 2018/11/17 01:20
No, i wasn’t asked to write a review. This app is seamless, and beautiful. The buttons are in a good order. Works well with raspberry pi running OSMC. Anything you would expect. Plus it’s free. I normally don’t write reviews. But this was so good that I had too.
Best Remote So Far
by Skinman95 on 2017/10/28 15:54
This is the third remote app for Kodi I’ve tried so far. All of them don’t hand volume controls. It seems to have more features than the others and is more smoother. May the Pro version will be if better and have volume control.
I did it all for the...
by CHKWHT on 2017/08/06 03:31
Pro upgrade. What's included? Idk. But it's free. And for that, I have reviewed. Oh and the app appears to work just fine. Although I haven't done much exploring. I'm a Pro now though! As if you didn't know that already.
Kodi Remote
by LuViews on 2017/11/06 20:07
I was looking for a ios app to use with Kodi and this app had the most number of reviews so I tried it. Right away I was able to upgrade to the pro version for free for leaving a review. This is that. I will revisit the app review after I actually see how it works w Kodi.
Works fine, but cannot disable sound from app
by gpanders on 2019/01/13 18:08
The remote part of the app makes an awful, loud clicking sound, and there is no way to disable it (without disabling sound on your phone entirely). It is very annoying. Functionally it works fine, but the inability to disable the sound from the app is a pretty major design flaw.
No more glitches!
by JessiDarklighter on 2017/12/11 22:30
I was using another app, but every time I tried to pick something to play it would glitch out! This one works better.
What a savior
by Boxmantech on 2017/09/23 20:53
I was really hoping that there would be a much easier method to control my first Kodi machine. This came across my radar and I was very pleased with the ease of the configuration and simplicity of its use. Thanks a lot developers!
No way to get started
by Jerblack on 2017/12/13 12:23
I just installed the app and there’s nothing there. It looks like it wants to be a remote, but there’s no possible way to add a server, and my existing server wasn’t found automatically. I think you’re leaning too much on the ability to automatically discover stuff if you’re going to completely nerf the app if one can’t be found. Give a way to manually add a server.
Best Remote
by Misha422 on 2017/11/11 03:06
I’ve tried several remotes and while most worked fine...they all had a flaw. This one didn’t have any of the flaws from the others.
Great Functionality
by Dsdan1127 on 2017/12/02 17:23
I was searching for a Kodi remote, and found/tried several, but this one was by far the best, controlling most of the features of the standard remote that came with the box. The best function is the keyboard for searching titles.
Kodi remote
by Snowmanno on 2017/10/01 05:57
Finally something created that gives cable companies competition. This remote is far better than all the others.
I have to review
by This reviewer for this game on 2017/08/09 03:25
The app immediately says to review to upgrade. I haven't even had a chance to use it but I'm reviewing so I can upgrade. Maybe I'll review again after I actually use it.
Best remote bar far
by sgtph3n1x on 2017/09/17 08:30
For the time I have been I haven't had any major issue is the set up and I like the fact that you can search within an app or add on
Fingers Crossed!
by PatientRESOLVE on 2017/08/20 16:53
Here's to once again hoping that an app will live up to expectations and now the audacity to enlist a review before actually getting use it along with getting the privilege to rate an app I know absolutely nothing about. Even weirder that sheeple/people actually rate it at a 4 to 5? How progressive and very liberal thinking of us and you. Cheers!

No hosts found and edit button is unclickable. Sybu works fine, however, so this app is simply defective.

Works Great Expect for the Clicking Sound

Great!

Good controller for kodi. Simple design but very effective.
Not very good
by FrankGrimes42 on 2019/09/08 16:15
First off it makes massively loud clicks on button presses EVEN WHEN YOUR DEVICE IS MUTED OR HAS VOLUME ALL THE WAY DOWN. HOW STUPID IS THAT.!?!?!.,? Controls don’t work the way literally every single other Kodi remote works. “Fast forward” doesn’t fast forward, but skips 30sec intervals?.?.??”?.?.!?!”l)*(&:38575)$(*(/“!?,?! THIS DEV NEEDS TO STOP PUBLISHING APPS
How do you review app before using it?
by DiDamon on 2019/09/07 19:27
Before ever using this, how can I possibly write a review? When I open the app on my phone, only blank server lines appear. We’ll see if it come up after writing a review.
Best available
by No one receiving on 2019/08/23 07:33
This is in my experience the best available Kodi remote app. I still relay on others that do a couple of things ore easily or intuitively. I also don’t like having to switch between the “Remote” and “Now Playing” interfaces. It’s not awful, but those would better if integrated into a single interface. Still, I like it better than any other Kodi app.
Works

Easy setup and it identified Kodi immediately. Looking forward to digging into all its features.
Can’t connect

Can’t connect to Kodi. Read that if you leave a review, it will help. I will come back later after trying.
No remote

I downloaded the app and the icon appeared but I click on it and it opens up blank!! I’m so confused. I had to delete it I hope I wasn’t charged anything
I love this app, but the audio is way too loud
by ZQ8 Blazer on 2019/08/11 01:52
This is by far the best Kodi remote, but the clicking sound is extremely loud, I wish there was a way to adjust it other than putting my phone on silent.
Do I have review to use?

UI is not as good as other free apps. Works with http no problem. Google how to configure Kodi server for remote “control” if you have problems.
Review to use?

Very well done. Sometimes it is slow to connect to my Kodi none the less is perfect
kodi remote

Solid

Limited features in 2.0 release
by Juancito!!! on 2019/05/24 23:01
This is NOT a full featured Kodi remote app, per the App description info above. Developer needs to update this App description and screenshots as the new 2.x update brings a simplified, limited, basic interface. I hope they bring the original features back in future releases.
Fake App
by Dachinno on 2019/05/05 11:47
These are all fake reviews - if you read them you’ll see that some of them are not even related to Kodi. I downloaded it and can’t add a host, so it is worthless.
Ok on my MacBook/Amazon Fire stick

Noisy Clicking
by D_iPhone01 on 2019/04/24 02:49
How is it not possible to toggle the audible remote “clicking” off? Otherwise, seems functional enough.
Way to clicky !
by psergiu on 2019/03/20 00:20
Developer - please add a option to control key click volume ! Even a on/off option would suffice. I’ll update my review to 5 stars and i bet more people will do the same. Thank you !

I can’t see any of my music files on the remote.
by Sloindian on 2019/03/08 19:56
I can’t see any of my music files on the remote. Needs to have Kodi running on a screen to see what you’re doing. Not sure I like that!
Works great
by Ojib2U on 2019/03/07 00:26
So far this Kodi remote app is working really well with my Sony Android TV that I have Kodi installed on. I’m running Kodi version 18.1 and it connects quickly and no problems running it. Very simple to use and dose every thing you need to do for running Kodi. Very pleased so far...
It’s just OK
by Element18592 on 2019/03/05 21:15
This app is basic. You can move up, down left, right. And of course the standard Kodi shortcuts are included. This app is mediocre. It works for how it was intended but there are no real features. Even without the lack of features it’s still a useable alternative to the official, however the reason I’ll be deleting it after this review is the god awful clicking sounds it makes that can’t even be disabled via the “settings” page, or lack there of.

Such a nicely designed Kodi Remote
by Vigorblade on 2019/02/17 09:44
I was hesitant to switch from another remote that I was using, but then decided to give this one a try, It’s one of my favorite remotes now.
Apple to android?
by Moneywannaa on 2019/02/07 22:25
I’m not sure yet but it seems everyone has been talking about apple to apple devices. So I hope when I get home apple to android doesn’t let me down. Wish me luck. My big question will be does it use WiFi of Bluetooth for connectivity?
Good app
by CrackedPepper86 on 2019/01/21 00:45

Works fine, but cannot disable sound from app
by gpanders on 2019/01/13 18:08
The remote part of the app makes an awful, loud clicking sound, and there is no way to disable it (without disabling sound on your phone entirely). It is very annoying. Functionally it works fine, but the inability to disable the sound from the app is a pretty major design flaw.
Simple and elegant
by Goody the Good on 2019/01/12 01:19
The shortcomings of the standard Kodi remote are it is ugly and complicated. This app looks nicer and is dead simple. Maybe too simple. Also it clicks. Not sure why this is. Remotes haven’t clicked since the 1980s. So this is very much like using the standard Kodi, slimmed down, and made prettier. It does also seem a little faster. But I wish it were smarter and hadn’t just sort of copied the standard layout. For instance I should be able to turn subtitles on and off with one tap, where there is only one subtitle stream. I should be able to switch audio with one tap where there are only two streams. That’s the right kind of simplicity.
Didn't work
by Ss1101md on 2019/01/07 20:08
Just gives an empty set with no way to manually add a host.
Don’t update if you can avoid
by Me111977 on 2019/01/03 03:45
This app was by far the better of the Kodi remotes. That is until a recent update removed the ability to search through your library. It now seems to be nothing more than a simple remote with no functionality. Not sure why it was done, but in my opinion, it was a huge mistake.
Basic, but it works
by Imchillen on 2018/12/22 23:05
Many of the features advertised either don’t exist, or are hard enough to find that I haven’t found them yet. It works as a basic remote, but everything else is missing.
Review
by lifgts on 2018/12/22 20:08
Seems great so far. Writing this to access the other advertised features
After update missing lot of features
by MikeshCZ on 2018/12/18 19:21
After last update I am missing lot of features. Now I cannot browse my library on phone and then just play it. Lame!
Version 2 removes features
by AdamZegelin on 2018/12/18 04:44
Version 2 removes many features, including the ability to browse the library on your phone. The screenshots show the old version.
Where’d all the features go?
by SnoPir8 on 2018/11/22 15:19
This used to be the best Kodi remote app out there but the recent update stripped all the power features. Now it’s just a basic play/pause remote like the dozen other apps out there.
Nicely uncluttered...
by Scott Strungis on 2018/11/20 02:00
Tried a few of these remotes under iOS. The lack of ads is a welcome thing here. No clutter on basic functionality is also great. The forced review for unlocked options is a bit much.
Horrible update
by rainkid2 on 2018/11/18 06:17
Put control and Now Playing on a single screen. This update is absolutely terrible.
Terrible Update
by Kadeschs on 2018/11/18 03:41
2.0 update undid everything that set this app apart from many of the others. Now just another typical button replacer. Don’t go by the preview pics shown here either. They are from the previous version when this app was good. Will be uninstalling.
Don’t bother
by Moxtrox on 2018/11/17 23:40
Latest update removed some essential features and basically crippled the app. Now it’s just a dumb remote with play, pause, directional buttons and not much else. Legacy version of this app offers much more, althoug in a severly outdated UI.
Went from the best to the worst.
by Devin Lawrence on 2018/11/17 17:27
With a single update, the developers have removed every single feature of value to an invested Kodi user. No longer can you browse your library via the app, control crucial playback options, or in general having anything other than a couple of arrows and a start/stop,enter/esc capability. Huge disappointment.
V2 removed functionality
by wh0rfin on 2018/11/17 04:46
Used to be very useful Now has almost no utility, even less functionality in 2.0.1 than 2! The images in the App Store show functionality no longer available in current version Avoid
Beautiful
by The Nerd On A Budget. on 2018/11/17 01:20
No, i wasn’t asked to write a review. This app is seamless, and beautiful. The buttons are in a good order. Works well with raspberry pi running OSMC. Anything you would expect. Plus it’s free. I normally don’t write reviews. But this was so good that I had too.
Terrible Update
by switch2018 on 2018/11/16 23:05
Go back to the previous version please. This recent update ruins the app. Lacking features severely
Hrm??
by Tomi2gun on 2018/11/16 04:53
The update removed features... I don’t see what was added? Why would you make the app worse? Still works as a generic remote 👍🏻
Great App!!!
by Moy Wah Fei on 2018/10/25 04:38
Love the interface!
Great initially
by Dirk_the_Diggler on 2018/10/24 04:58
I’ve been using this app for over a year and it had been fantastic. After the recent update to v2.0, several features I utilized (mainly the icon that brought play options in a drop down from the player) have been removed. While the interface is great for those who upload things to Kodi, for us that stream and enjoy subtitles, offsets, and volume amplification settings.... This is lacking severely now. I even emailed the developer about the issue and received no response about the issue. Two weeks and no response so far. Overall, it’s still a decent remote for Kodi... I just can’t stand the new update.
Rev 2.0
by Pogo57 on 2018/10/20 23:56
Long time user of this app. Don’t like many of the changes to the new interface. Really the only thing that I do like is the addition of volume control to the “remote” page. I think that I’m going to switch to the app that is/was very similar to this app. Wish I could downgrade to the previous version.
This remote is awesome
by V2White on 2018/10/02 01:35
Love using it. It is simple and easy to use.
Figuring out how to work this app
by Andi.Nicole on 2018/07/29 17:28
Currently just downloaded and it does not seem to be working. Writing review to see if this, based on other comments, will trigger it to work...
Nice Kodi client
by Fastgop2 on 2018/07/16 21:46
I've been using this client for quite some time now and haven't found a better alternative.
Keyboard sounds
by hassanelwaly on 2018/07/04 23:18
It’s a good app but I don’t like keyboard sounds. Is there any way to mute?
Good app

“Add Host” option missing, so currently broken
by juice_money on 2018/06/02 20:53
There should be an “add host” button on the bottom left in order to enter the set it up, but it’s missing. The “edit” button on the bottom left doesn’t do anything either...so it’s impossible to make this work (at least in this version of the app, and the latest version of iOS on an iPhone X).
Cannot add host
by onetiger_ on 2018/05/31 19:19
useless, Cannot add host, “edit” does nothing
Great but...
by OdysseusRex on 2018/05/27 23:39
WAD but how do you turn off that annoying button clicking noise? And how do you add a device manually when it doesn’t auto detect one? Haven't found it yet.
Excellent!
by nwo1972 on 2018/05/22 05:04
So easy to set up and use. Thank you for this app!!
Review trying to get it working ??|?

Don't get anything else.this is simple to use and sets up to kodi easily.
Lets see how good it is...
by IhaveNothingBetterToDo on 2018/05/15 02:11
They told me to leave a review of this app and they’d give me the Pro version free. I haven't used yet so I’ll come back and update after I try out Pro Version. I like the free version. I like the dark theme, clean easy to read fonts and easy to navigate menus.
Better UI than Official Remote.
by ZeroDrek on 2018/05/09 19:55
The UI is nice and updated in this app. Other than that it’s almost just like the Official Kodi Remote. My only suggestion: Change the Android-esque app icon with the drop shadow.
Clever Review Scheme
by TcRonin on 2017/08/10 03:33
Somewhat impressed by the idea to make you write a review in order to use features. The rating in the app is what made me choose it, but then require a review for the free upgrade? Of course ppl are gonna write good things. We'll see how this goes when I upgrade and what value it brings. Until then, I doesn't find or do anything for me. Can't edit the servers like I want to. Hopefully this upgrade will "unlock" that feature. Here we go...
Simple and elegant
by Goody the Good on 2019/01/12 01:19
The shortcomings of the standard Kodi remote are it is ugly and complicated. This app looks nicer and is dead simple. Maybe too simple. Also it clicks. Not sure why this is. Remotes haven’t clicked since the 1980s. So this is very much like using the standard Kodi, slimmed down, and made prettier. It does also seem a little faster. But I wish it were smarter and hadn’t just sort of copied the standard layout. For instance I should be able to turn subtitles on and off with one tap, where there is only one subtitle stream. I should be able to switch audio with one tap where there are only two streams. That’s the right kind of simplicity.

Saved me time
by _Tyson_ on 2017/11/01 00:06
I tried using the remote that came with my Kodi box but it was lacking in the keyboard department as well as response, with this app I am able to search faster with less effort that I was able to do previously. Definitely a must for box users that do not want to buy a new remote or for PC users that wish to have a more ha dis free experience on their PC when it is connected to a tv or projector.
Well Made App
by Dylan Hull on 2017/10/04 02:42
While I am unfamiliar with how Cody works on iOS devices, I was confident that it will designed and will develop dedication like this could help me figure out how to get it working as far as being able to stream content to my new Chomecast. I have read that this is possible -- it's just a matter of figuring it out, which leaves me feeling much more hopeful than I otherwise would be.
I don’t usually write reviews.
by J. Rollans on 2017/09/23 05:40
So far I am indeed digging this app quite a bit. Honestly I think it’s interesting that they give you the upgrade for leaving a review. I don’t really have a problem with it! App is speedy and does exactly what I want it too; I’ve had a couple random disconnects here and there, but that could be more poor overworked Raspberry Pi. Either way, no big deal to just connect again!
Better than others
by Justineg87 on 2017/11/18 04:12
I’ve had some pretty bad luck with other apps. Between disconnections from servers and having to restart or reconfigure my settings thinking it was my computer. I would have to close out kodi in the computer and restart it for it to reconnect to the remote. I really enjoy the amount of features on this app and hope it grows. Thank you :)
Best so far
by Smokingjoejr on 2017/09/02 19:20
I've tried quite a few Kodi Remote apps and so far this is the best one. I don't know what the pro version will do but without the pro version I've been using it for months with no problem. I'll probably write another review once I see what the upgraded version does different. I am also writing this review just to get rid of the little red box that floats around everywhere.
Works well
by Defrezus on 2017/08/13 18:39
Although I've had the app on my phone for a long time, it was only recently that I decided to start using it so I can have my laptop connected to my TV and hang out on the couch. I would say it takes a little bit a learning to smoothly operate it outside of the basic features but it's definitely worth the effort.
I’m impressed!
by Beezermigs on 2017/12/09 16:37
Let’s face it, Kodi can be buggy and confusing. And using a third party remote can make things even more confusing and annoying. This Kodi remote makes everything feel like it should. I sometimes think I’m using my TV instead, it’s that reliable and responsive. If you use Kodi, you want this remote app. That is all.
Best available
by No one receiving on 2019/08/23 07:33
This is in my experience the best available Kodi remote app. I still relay on others that do a couple of things ore easily or intuitively. I also don’t like having to switch between the “Remote” and “Now Playing” interfaces. It’s not awful, but those would better if integrated into a single interface. Still, I like it better than any other Kodi app.
Kodi Remote App
by RavenRamon on 2017/12/03 17:07
This is the best Kodi remote I've tried this far. It's fast, responsive, and user friendly. The other Kodi remote apps that I've tried have had poor connectivity issues and I had for kill the app and restart so many times. This new app is much more dependable and also a time saver when searching for movies. Thanks for the App!
Great!
by BABIEGURL619 on 2017/10/17 03:50
Of all Kodi remotes, this one works great! Only downfall is when using the search engine to look for a title, the connection between the two does not always work very well and seems to not be connected. Other than that, it’s a great remote and seems more user friendly than some others I have used.
A Convenient and Useful Tool
by Foley1313 on 2017/12/11 04:34
The integration and design are both a great addition to my desktop controls. The visuals are nice and so far it has been an easy tool to get the hang of. The setup was fairly simple, especially if you have even just a little experience in setting up wifi tablet controllers.
It’s just OK
by Element18592 on 2019/03/05 21:15
This app is basic. You can move up, down left, right. And of course the standard Kodi shortcuts are included. This app is mediocre. It works for how it was intended but there are no real features. Even without the lack of features it’s still a useable alternative to the official, however the reason I’ll be deleting it after this review is the god awful clicking sounds it makes that can’t even be disabled via the “settings” page, or lack there of.
Works very well, have had any problems
by Derp3212 on 2017/10/12 04:24
I run kodi on a raspberry pi and this remote works perfectly for it, I have had no issues from the remote and any problems I have had have come from the pi itself. I highly recommend this app if you are looking for a solid and clean remote for your setup.
Kodi remote app
by Robbymat on 2017/12/29 00:56
This was a convenient alternative to having to purchase a new remote. Worked as it was supposed to and being able to use my own phone added a familiar element. I found it much easier to use than the Firestick Remote I was using prior to downloading this app.
So far so good!
by SirAli on 2017/12/08 09:44
I didn’t have any deal breaker issues with this app. This is the third kodi app I’m downloading from the app store. It was very fast in discovering my kodi machine ( contrary to the previous ones!). Also the app combined the remote control function and library feature in one package.
I must be doing something wrong?
by WelshWizard11 on 2017/09/09 03:48
This app used to work great, but now for some unknown reason I cant get my Kodi to allow remote via HTTP. I keep getting "request failed" error when selecting the radio button. So, that said, I assume this app should still be gold for any system that will allow for outside remote control.
Pro update for review
by Saving savvy mom on 2017/09/04 06:50
As others have mentioned the Pro version is offered as long as you leave a review. I'm not very experienced in Kodi but am learning fast and the app seems easy to move throughout. Will update review with more once I have more experience with the app.
Does NOT work + No app support
by 2wire426 on 2019/03/04 19:13
Upon launch of this app (using ios 12.1.4), the screen immediately goes to a msg screen saying: • No saved host • No host discovered There is no option to change any settings from this page, and you cannot access any other page. Changing every option for the app thru the phone’s settings also does nothing. The link to the developer on this App Store page takes you to a web page for their media player where there is no information for this app at all, and no link to contact them there either. Pretty sad and disappointing because their media player app is quite good. I would give zero stars if I could. DO NOT BOTHER WITH THIS APP! They obviously do not care about it, and do not want to be bothered with supporting it!
Lets see how good it is...

Nice Kodi Remote, However.
by Sparky_WI on 2019/09/15 16:21
Nice remote works perfectly just can't turn off the sound for the remote functions. When you move around all you hear are these loud click sounds. Quiet annoying that you can't turn off the remote sounds.
So far so good!!
by TheOnlyJamesThatMatters on 2017/09/12 02:01
I haven't had long to test yet but I love how it connects to wifi and from there it's ready to go! Only issue so far is I can't find a pause button (on the remote from what I see). But I'm still getting to know the app. Overall great app!!
Initial impressions
by anievoios on 2019/10/06 10:30
Out of the box the official Kodi remote has far more features. However it is in desperate need of an UI update. This remote looks nice and has some layout choices that I prefer over the official. The main one being a volume control on the main remote screen. I look forward to trying out all the features.

by Awsomeguy178 on 2017/10/16 11:42
I have been always using the control through traditional remote over WiFi but now with this app it saves a lot of time specially when searching for a movie name.
Review
by james phariss on 2017/11/26 06:11
Seems to be a decent app so far a little slow on finding out how to link the controller hopefully it doesn't disconnect as often as other Kodiak controller apps. Will come back to edit review once used for at least a week for a solid review. 🤔👍
Your App Stop Working Altogether Now
by Dr. O-Thug on 2019/07/28 15:31
The app used to work perfectly before now. My laptop is still set up perfect to allow the remote function and now it says it cannot find the device which is complete fabrication. I don’t know what you did to destroy your app, but it is clearly broken to pieces. I tried to delete and and redone load and yet it’s still screwed beyond repair. Please let me know you are going to do to fix this altercation.
Works good, looks better
by Carlwithayj on 2017/09/27 20:49
This remote seems to be as good as the official remote app. The main remote view looks cleaner and it seems to function a big snappier. I’m writing this review to get rid of the red box that follows you until you do.
I really like the Kodi...
by Wjll40 on 2017/09/15 06:10
In order to view anything I think I have to review. I have really been enjoying the Kodi on my firestick. I'm hoping this app will let me look up movies to see if they are available to stream, and which add on to use.
Simple and intuitive to use.
by balzacq on 2017/11/06 04:44
I run Kodi on a Raspberry Pi, and it’s very convenient to use this remote on my phone, which I always have handy, rather than yet another remote on my coffee table or pulling out the keyboard attached to the Pi across the room.
First glance
by Joe Bob Briggs 2nd cousin on 2017/10/21 12:26
Discovered Kodi renderer quickly and worked well for pause/play and fast forward. Rewind was a problem. The problem could well be that my media server (UMS on Linux) does not support rewind. I will test later with a movie from Stream Hub.
App with the highest rating !
by Phantomsubset on 2017/09/02 23:07
I just got the app because of the highest ratings. You do get an upgrade to the Pro version for a review so here goes. Hopefully I do get the full version after this. I look forward to using this app.
Nicely
by Cheerios Kid on 2017/11/30 01:52
Great app for the money and I don’t need a lot of time to waste money and not get to know each one more then you can do it for the next one or more then you can play with you can do not play the game

Best Remote So Far
by Skinman95 on 2017/10/28 15:54
This is the third remote app for Kodi I’ve tried so far. All of them don’t hand volume controls. It seems to have more features than the others and is more smoother. May the Pro version will be if better and have volume control.
I did it all for the...
by CHKWHT on 2017/08/06 03:31
Pro upgrade. What's included? Idk. But it's free. And for that, I have reviewed. Oh and the app appears to work just fine. Although I haven't done much exploring. I'm a Pro now though! As if you didn't know that already.
Kodi Remote
by LuViews on 2017/11/06 20:07
I was looking for a ios app to use with Kodi and this app had the most number of reviews so I tried it. Right away I was able to upgrade to the pro version for free for leaving a review. This is that. I will revisit the app review after I actually see how it works w Kodi.
Works fine, but cannot disable sound from app
by gpanders on 2019/01/13 18:08
The remote part of the app makes an awful, loud clicking sound, and there is no way to disable it (without disabling sound on your phone entirely). It is very annoying. Functionally it works fine, but the inability to disable the sound from the app is a pretty major design flaw.
No more glitches!
by JessiDarklighter on 2017/12/11 22:30
I was using another app, but every time I tried to pick something to play it would glitch out! This one works better.
What a savior
by Boxmantech on 2017/09/23 20:53
I was really hoping that there would be a much easier method to control my first Kodi machine. This came across my radar and I was very pleased with the ease of the configuration and simplicity of its use. Thanks a lot developers!
No way to get started
by Jerblack on 2017/12/13 12:23
I just installed the app and there’s nothing there. It looks like it wants to be a remote, but there’s no possible way to add a server, and my existing server wasn’t found automatically. I think you’re leaning too much on the ability to automatically discover stuff if you’re going to completely nerf the app if one can’t be found. Give a way to manually add a server.
Best Remote
by Misha422 on 2017/11/11 03:06
I’ve tried several remotes and while most worked fine...they all had a flaw. This one didn’t have any of the flaws from the others.
Great Functionality
by Dsdan1127 on 2017/12/02 17:23
I was searching for a Kodi remote, and found/tried several, but this one was by far the best, controlling most of the features of the standard remote that came with the box. The best function is the keyboard for searching titles.
Kodi remote
by Snowmanno on 2017/10/01 05:57
Finally something created that gives cable companies competition. This remote is far better than all the others.
I have to review
by This reviewer for this game on 2017/08/09 03:25
The app immediately says to review to upgrade. I haven't even had a chance to use it but I'm reviewing so I can upgrade. Maybe I'll review again after I actually use it.
Best remote bar far
by sgtph3n1x on 2017/09/17 08:30
For the time I have been I haven't had any major issue is the set up and I like the fact that you can search within an app or add on
Fingers Crossed!
by PatientRESOLVE on 2017/08/20 16:53
Here's to once again hoping that an app will live up to expectations and now the audacity to enlist a review before actually getting use it along with getting the privilege to rate an app I know absolutely nothing about. Even weirder that sheeple/people actually rate it at a 4 to 5? How progressive and very liberal thinking of us and you. Cheers!
