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.

Pros:

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

Cons:

The user interface could be slightly more modern.

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.

Resuming: HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Pros:

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.

Cons:

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).
