    Software Reviews and Critisims

      Works great, just like the description says it should!

      If you need an Microsoft tv remote for your Microsoft laptop or desktop, this is a perfect solution. The only thing I would like to see it have in the future (as a feature request) would be to set up the remote so it could pause video too. I’m trying to pause shows on netflix by using the “OK” button, like I would with the Microsoft remote, but unfortunately it doesn’t work like that currently. I LOVE using the arrows and enter keys on my keyboard to navigate around however, thanks for making this and I’d be happy to pay something nominal to continue app development. $2.99 to $4.99/download?

      Saved me $20!

      I lost my remote for my Microsoft TV, and I reset my Microsoft TV because it was acting up. I didn’t realize till afterward that I wouldn’t be able to use my Microsoft Remote app on my phone. What a freak out I had. This is the only way my children watch TV, so you can guess I was combing the internet right away for info on what to do. I remembered when I reset my Microsoft TV it said I could use a bluetooth keyboard, so I wondered about my Pc, if I could use it. So i searched in the app store for an Microsoft Remote, and then here and behold this app popped up. What a life saver! Now everything is up and running again. Thanks a million!!

      It has potential, but very limited market.

      too many bluetooth devices that are in too far away location. This app depends on a stable bluetooth connection and must be the latest technology to work. so if you have a pre 2016 Windows, give it up this isn’t going to work for you. It’s a good app, but the bluetooth dependency makes it suceptible to wirelss device interference unless you have the most recent Microsoft hardware. prior to 2016 bluetooth was really just to for arms length (up to 10’) even though the spec for bluetooth said oh 25 to 50 or 100 ft, that was a theorhetical distance without interference from other devices or from environment (walls, other metal items) So you may download it and it’s fine, you may download it and it works once or twice and then won’t connect or does so sporadically. The latter is the bluetooth limitation.

      It took me a while to get my PC to connect to the Bluetooth but it seemed to work like a charm after that…for a little while. Then it crashed. Finally got it working again after a full restart but then the on-screen buttons seemed to be mis-assigned, performing the action of a different button. Also, when I click on the (?) button in the upper right corner, a guide pops up very breifly, never to be seen again, despite further button clicking. Pretty frustrating experience over all. That being said, for the short time it worked it was pretty awesome to controll my Microsoft TV from my MBP’s keyboard. I just wish it was more stable/functional. Probably won’t use it unless these issues are addressed.

      Awesome Sauce - Must Have for Microsoft Addicts

      Uses Bluetooth to control Microsoft TV from your Windows! Works great. You can use your Windows as a keyboard, use it when you loose the small TV remote in a couch cushion. 90% of my TV time is on Microsoft TV and I usually have my PC out to surf while I watch. Fire up Cider and use the Windows as a remote…. It just doesn’t get better than this app. Since Microsoft hasn’t released a remote or enabled wi-fi network control of TV for Windows the way they have with iOS devices, this app fills the gap rather nicely.
