Works Great

When it works, it works great! Wish it could turn on my DirecTV box when it is off and I am away from the house. Only feature is the "Select" button on startup, but that no longer works. Need a power the DirecTV button.

The app stopped working on my Nokia Lumia 1020. Doesn't allow me to login anymore. The iOS version of the app does work fine, so its clear is an issue of the WP app. I'm terribly disappointed given the fact that I switched from a Slingbox competitor (Vulkano Streammer): I got rid of it and decided to purchase Slingbox just to be able to connect from my Windows Phone given the existing app. Broken promises. I hope Slingbox team fix this app, if so I will be more than glad to come back and rate back the app to a more positive light.

What am I missing? I was watching the Ryder Cup from my M1 on my 920 within a few minutes of installing. Great app....great picture quality....brain required.

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.

So poorly designed. Windows phone gets no love. I changed my source setting and that was it, no way to change it back. Had to uninstall the app. Very lazy design, not worth $14

App 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.

To repeat what others have said, make sure your slingbox is supported before you buy this app!
