    "RedEye works great once you have everything set up with the proper devices installed. It works as advertised, but there is a steep learning curve that can make it a little difficult to get the hang of. I would prefer a little more intuitive design so almost anyone can use it without having to struggle to find the features they are desiring. All in all though it does work."

    "My toddler son accidentally broke our TV's remote. Come to find out it was discontinued our model of TV and our only option was to buy an expensive universal remote or to find a usable app to put on her Android phones. We debated back and forth what we were going to do in ultimately decided to go with the app for now. So far it's worked perfectly. It has all the features we would want and then some. We never have to worry about losing or damaging our remote now that we have this app installed across our android phones and tablets. Its very convienent. "
