5/19/2013Opens with a frozen image and will not work or respond to commands. ng
5/13/2013Shows black screen randomly!!!
4/29/2013As far as this app goes on smartphones..WP8 is about the best I have used. I have it on an IPad,iPhone and on Android and it works by far the best on my Lumia920. Still a little laggy but works much better on this device then my others. The price is why I only gave it 4 stars. Way to expensive when u pay 200plus dollars for the slingbox.
4/21/2013Won't load.. Grr
4/19/2013Suddenly stopped working. Really sucks.
4/15/2013Works great with my old Slingbox HD, Could never follow all my local teams without it!
3/22/2013Doesn't work with hopper, waste of money.
3/14/2013Doesn't work with HTC wp8 and new dish hopper w/sling... please fix!!!
3/12/2013App works, but not perfect. Controls to change channels and read guide are too slow. Even on high speed internet. Other than that, it does work, I can watch tv just as advertised. If they can update this so make the controls and response to the cable box a little quicker i will probably increase the rating.
2/27/2013To repeat what others have said, make sure your slingbox is supported before you buy this app!
