Nothing frustrates anyone on a game night more than a lost remote. Worry no more. This APK get brings total control of your TV on your Android mobile or tablet.
The Google Play app for Easy Universal TV Remote is simple, straightforward, and the UI is easy enough for anyone to understand and get used to. For that reason, I give the app a 4/5. The interface contains nicely designed control buttons such as Volume and Program Up/Down, mute, power, and other configuration settings are laid out well, and there isn’t any clutter. On the settings, you have options for IP Port, IP Blaster or Wi-Fi which you can tap to select.
I give the features a rating of 4/5. With this Android app, you will transform your phone into a full remote control. It will require your phone to have an IR port, but even without one, you can use an IR blaster or Wi-Fi for newer Smart TV models. You can select which option works for you in your settings.
You may also need to enter the IP address of your Smart TV if it is on a network with other devices. The Universal Remote works exactly like a conventional one, though the connectivity isn’t too perfect.
It is compatible with most but not all TV brands: Samsung, LG, Sony, Vizio, Panasonic, Sharp and an array of others. The recent updates and the latest version have added compatibility with IKEA and Bluesens TVs and a few other bug fixes.
The Google Android app is free to get, and there are no in-app purchases. The app is compatible with a wide range of smartphones and devices running Android 2.3 or higher. The app isn’t compatible with iOS.
Ease of Use
I give the app a 3/5 for this section. It rarely works, and even when it does, you are bombarded with too many ads and requests for a rating. I found this a bit intrusive. The app works for a few seconds and then loses connectivity or shows more ads.
