  • Stunned by Ugly Design

    By DavidCMcKee
    Been using this since inception as Roomie. For the life of me I can’t understand this look. As a former recording engineer the volume control is pathetic. It should be a slider with decibel markings. Colors are ugly, dull and lack contrast. Would be nice if 3D buttons would be designed. Take a look at Pro Tools, Pioneer iContol AV5 or some good audio programs. I am lost at the start looking at this new interface. Will the old Simple System go away? Any way to change colors? Buttons are huge any way to change?
  • Money hungry

    A monthly fee remote control.
  • Resolved billing issues now works well

    By Brad Isaac
    Update: Got things set up and like the new navigation features. The interface is easier to use than prior versions. Room for improvement: They could improve the documentation as some features are tough to configure. Priior review: Old version stopped functioning last night and popped up a message to download this version. I did and subscribed to the 10 device trial. Hadn’t even had a chance to set it up when this morning I get confirmation that shows a subscription to the old/non-working version AND new version 5 subscription. So $18 for a product that doesn’t work + $20 for the new version. $38 in all and their policy states “no refunds”.
  • Outstanding and getting even better!

    By Daveman918
    Simple Home is what all the big expensive systems try to deliver at a fraction of the price. I use almost every feature including multi-location and it just works. The integrated guide and dvr functionality with Tivo is fantastic and the new support for Apple HomeKit creates an easy to use experience. Lastly, the devs are always making this product better and update it to support new devices / technology.
  • Not liking new design, but maybe I need to get more experience with it

    By StarkDDS
    I upgraded and there was such a change that me and my family had trouble navigating. What I realized is that it defaults to the simple remote tab that shows all activities for all rooms. You can select the room your in with the drop down menu, but we have a dedicated remote for the living room, and I would like it to remember the room. Maybe there is away and I haven’t figured it out
  • New update ruined the layout

    By manojjpatel
    Yeah, one can “force” the old (they call it legacy) layout. But then what’s the point. Was hoping that labeling, placing notes will be added to this. Instead, UI has taken many steps backward... Technology behind this app works very good but UI is a huge disappointment...
  • Not an update but a rollback

    By General Custer 21
    This app has taken a major step backwards. The ui is terrible. The app used to be intuitive. This not so much. Seems like things were just changed for change sake. Go back to how things were
  • Best remote app on the market!

    By ahwman
    I’ve stopped counting the number of apps I’ve tried to control all of my AV equipment. Besides the lengthy learning curves and elaborate configurations, you either spend a LOT of time and effort building custom remotes to your liking, or end up settling for half baked solutions with huge compromises. Simple Control gives you the best of both worlds. You can literally set up all of your remotes and equipment in minutes instead of hours all while enjoying high end features... Love it!
  • Best version yet

    By Njbrodeur87
    App looks beautiful, works great, so much better then previous versions. Love smart home integration as well.
  • Give it some time

    By nyjklein
    The new interface can be a shock at first. But give it some time and I think it will quickly grow on you. And once you start to realize all the new capabilities, you'll be sold.
