    The app works as advertised. It connects to my Slingbox Pro without issues, however the interface is ancient. They have not updated the app in almost a year. They are missing basic things that have been on Android and iOS for quite some time (auto bandwidth detection, remembering the quality you select, support for HD picture, etc.). One year later, Sling still does the bare minimum for WP users. They just updated the app to allow use of the M1, nothing more. This app is still worth the $$, however it lags behind its counterparts in iOS and Android.

    You are a thick headed **** if you can't get this working. It works perfectly. Love it.

    Hate all the constant loading. Every single time I do anything on this app, there is a load time. I don't expect it to be instantaneous, but please cut down on the loading between each button I press.

    Wow finally a update. I guess they notice wp is gaining fast. This works excellent on my WP 8.1.1 my Windows tablet, windows laptop. All you complaining just bunch of dumb dumb. It so simple. 😄

    This app should be listed in top junk app list. Worst app of this era. Funny thing is these guys started new app for the windows 8 to charge once again the poor customers. This app never worked correctly. One has to buy separate IPad app 14.99,iPhone app 14.99, android phone 14.99, Android tablet 14.99, windows phone 8 14.99, windows 8 tablet 14.99. Those who are having these devices, calculate how much it costs all together for the apps and device that doesn't work most of the times. definitely dumb device dumb app, not the complaining person.

    I've had no problem with the app other than I had to pay 15$ for it. You just have to know how to use it.

    This is bulls*#$%. The app read that it was compatible with the Dish Hopper with Sling when I bought and now they changed it. Love how you can't get a refund. Go F yourself Sling!!

    Not compatible with SlingM1. Now how do I get a refund!

    FALSE ADVERTISING. They put "Dish" customers in the introduction even though the Dish Hopper w/Sling is NOT compatible. Had to read the fine print. Waste of money - beware!
