    Although useful, I find it inconvenient to have it shut off everytime I go to use the remote. Also when I shut it off its supposed to close down everything the box is checked But it insists on trying to restart itself.

    I use those both on my phone and tablet and I absolutely love it. Only issue I have is finding the right video formats and the user interface is a little dated. The developer is always fixing bugs and making it better though.
