    Simple yet Powerful

    Posted .

    Loved the fact that its so easy to setup Pronto out of the box with SmartRemote app for my devices. Pronto connectivity is solid..and i can even control my Vizio soundbar. My old RoomieRemote app looks ugly in front of this app and glad to move on. SmartRemote app itself seems to be well thought out and its TV Guide is amazing. However I guess they could add a feature to search for shows to find out its future schedules. Overall Pronto is a small, portable, cheap device that can control your device

    Good for the price... when on sale

    I originally got this as a Deal of the Day for $29.99, and I thought it was a decent deal at that price. After a week, it was the Deal of the Day again for $19.99, so I got some money back. Pros: -Works great for most devices -App works okay on most tablets/phones -Battery life is better than 30 days (I use rechargeable) -Way cheaper than many items that do similar things (i.e. Harmony) Cons: -You have to tweak certain remote settings for some audio devices -Manually doing remote programming is a pain (note the settings elsewhere in case they get erased) -No AC power ability -Can easily be mistaken for a bottle of cologne

    Exceeded expectations

    A friend of mine sent me an article on the Pronto Peel. I decided to buy one and give it a try. The device was even smaller than I thought. Configuring the app was mostly a breeze, but I do wish the wizard was a bit more descriptive. I think it’s really cool to switch the channel right from the guide, really fast too. I can control my LG TV, DVR, soundbar and Roku just from my iPhone 5S. It’s also super convenient to switch with just one tap from watching DVR to watching Roku. Also having quick access to all important remote buttons is pretty convenient. Next I configured my bedroom TV. Pretty cool, my iphone is my alarm clock and my remote.

    Brings old hardware to the smart phone age

    Pretty impressive would be better for worked over Wi-Fi then Bluetooth. I say this because you could only have one person connected to it at a time. In order for second person can use it you would have to disconnect and then they would have to pair-up their device. Overall a nice unit worked for four out of my five devices. We only want to get them worked for was a pretty old Sony receiver. No cords - works off of 4 - AA batteries Really nice feature is you put in your cable provider and it pulls up the whole cable guide. (really nice feature)

    One solution to all your remote problems

    I was a bit hesitant to try this out but it turned out to be a great smart-remote. So basically you place the pronto in front of your tv or any where in the room and you can control about anything from your smartphone. You can also backup all your settings and remotes with google+ or facebook account. It has suuport for all your HDTVs and streaming boxes. Only one I couldn't find was Amazon Fire Stick but you can still control it with directional buttons. But support of additional streaming boxes is still growing. Once you connect your smartphone with pronto over bluetooth you dont ever have to worry about finding any remote. It works with Peel smart remote app which also provides you with program guide and you can also have multiple-room setup. Overall I am happy with the product.

    So Glad to have found and bought this, but......

    I just received the Peel Pronto and I have to say, It's pretty amazing, but not without some faults. It won't find my Netflix (although it's in the device menu) or our Fire Stick (to be fair, they don't support that yet I believe). It just took a couple of minutes to get it up and running.. BUT, there are a few unanswered questions. If I decide to switch to my iPad, I have to disconnect from my iPhone and it's not intuitive how to do that and the docs don't explain it well. I haven't tried yet, but I assume I have to got to bluetooth settings and disconnect from the Pronto, then connect with the iPad. It would be great and a SUPER addition to be able to use our Amazon and Netflix account, but so far, nope.

    If i could add some changes, it would be letting multiple people pare at the same time, I work at a fire department, it would be nice to not have to restart the thing if others wanted to use it.

    Works great. Only one small issue

    I absolutely love the way it works. No delay, the program guide, easy to set up and easy to use. The only issue is you can only connect one iOS device at a time and no android support.

    Best All in all Remote

    I have been looking on various all in one remote with the intention that i can control through my ipad or iPhone. I have been looking at logitech harmony. But it was costly and it did not serve my purpose. This product well finally is the answer to my solution and it is half the price of harmony.

    Good Use of your spare Phones..!

    Posted .

    I got this product since I was looking for a Universal Remote Out there, and this seemed like a good option. Pairing the PRONTO with the iOS app, was so easy and simple. The iOS App is itself so simple, smooth & user-friendly, that I like it overall. Though, I was able to pair this to more than one iOS Device, You could actually Pair & Use Only 1 Device at a time. To Use another Device, you would have to reset the PRONTO, and then use the second device. I have a Variety of products, including a smart TV, Audio Receiver among others with literally all sort of cables going all round. This is a good Product for someone, who wouldn't want to go with the Old-Fashioned Remote with those hard buttons on it.

    wide range of capabilities

    Posted .

    This pronto smart remote was purchased to take the place of my previous phone that had the IR remote capability. After switching to an iphone which doesn't have that capability I had to purchase this to use with my Peel remote app on my iphone. This remote in conjunction with Peel Remote app can control multiple devices including soundbars, DVD, Blu-ray players, etc. It also has a program guide on your phone that you set up to match your programming options, from cable to satellite and even over the air signal from where you live. I have over the air antenna on my house and this provides me with a guide on whats playing. The only downfall that I see is that only one device using the Peel Remote app can be connected to it at one time. Which quite frankly isn't a big deal, as you normally only have ONE remote for a device anyway, right? This device does take 2 AAA batteries I believe, and they have already lasted several months. All in all, very satisfied with this product.

    Worked pretty good, still haven't got my Sony DVD player to work. Everything else works great. There was an email address given for help. Still waiting. But I would buy this again.

    Great remote for the price

    I love this universal remote! It is inexpensive and I find it to be almost as functional and way easier to set up than an expensive universal remote. Love that you can use it in different rooms, too. Would have given it 5 stars, but sometimes I have to re-establish Bluetooth connection with my phone, which is a bit of a nuisance.

    Would have given it 5 stars if it had support for Amazon FireTV but otherwise a good product. Was able to "retire" my TV, DVD, cable box and Apple TV remotes.

      Hi,

      Thanks for providing your feedback. I wanted to let you know that we are working on to have the Amazon Fire TV added in our database but I don't have a specific date yet when this will be. I will notify you when it has been added.

      Thanks,

    I got it because I lost my tv remote. The only thing I don't like is that you can't manually turn it off. So it just wastes the battery life unless you take them out. But that is just a nit-picking fault. It does the job and the Bluetooth works great!

    It's a great product and delivers its promise to be able to control your entire entertainment center from your iPhone. The only downside is that it doesn't seem to allow other family members to use their phone.

    Only works off of battery, wish it had a way to plug it up, it works off of BluTooth, so you'll need to change the 4AA batteries about once a month.

    It works ok, I found it cheaper on Amazon. Signal is iffy if more than 20 feet away and line of sight is critical. I still prefer it over a regular remote. The app is good.

    Works well for most items and setup is simple. I have an Element TV that is a little off. For example, the input has to be changed using the volume button.
