    Huge amount of integrations to use as remotes. Has a lot of use cases.


    The user interface could be slightly more modern.

    I've used the Android version some times ago. I remember using it to control Kodi on an old laptop I set up as a media player and not only I controlled Kodi but I shut the laptop down, controlled the mouse and keyboard with no problems. I almost never had to open the laptop and use it's keyboard.

    1. Clever usage

    2. Very handy for various situations

    3. Innovative

    4. Free to use (and reasonable premium price)

    5. Cross-platform

    6. So on.


    1. Not so neat interface (it could make more use of Google's Material Design)

    2. Some remotes lack support (should take time to improve).

    I was asking for recommendations initially to control MPC-HC and PowerPoint Presentations, but this is much more than that. It's perfect!

    The only cons I have for now are the not so clear UI (but I like the black theme, thanks for that), but I guess it could make it more beaufitul by embeding more of the Google's Material Design features.

    The other thing is that the remotes still lack improvements, but I understand that as they're single devs.

    I wouldn't think twice to buy the premium version as it's so cool with many features and surely to help the contributors.

@pqvst @jaberglund hey, I don't know if it is polite to ask this, but... Are you working on advanced media player releases? I'd love to see features like MX Player to slide up to increase volume, brightness, seek time, etc. For now, only VLC advanced remote has those features (sliders), but I'd love to see on the system and MPC overall media controllers. Also, I'd be glad to translate the strings on the FAQ and all possible accessible strings to Brazilian Portuguese on my free time. That's the help I could offer in return to thank for this amazing app. Please let me know if the strings are hosted on Crowdin or any platform like that.

I've been using this app for over 3 years now. It is my favorite media controlling tool. The keyboard and mouse emulating tools are also priceless.
