Simple, works. Wished it were UWP w/ Continuum

Update: Would love it if this was a UWP app that supported continuum!!! WP8/10 Review: Seems a bit basic compared to the iPhone version but worked great out of the box. Picture quality is great.

with slingbox 500, aspect squashed black bottom

Seems when used on HD signal to slingbox 500, picture is squeezed vertical with top/bottom Black bars. Zoom doesn't help. Didn't do this with slingbox pro older model

Aspect ratio is wrong

When using a HD set top box as the source, the aspect ratio is wrong with fatter images and the aspect ratio button is grayed out, not allowing you to change it.

Functionality is great on winpho8. It starts the stream quick unlike the browser which plays ads before the stream starts. Super lame on that front when you spend $500+ for the box. Hope they update the app for winpho10.

Absolutely horrible

Controls, settings, and app execution are completely horrible, especially compared to this app on other platforms. There also hasn't been an update since WP8 first launched, which was still just a minor under the hood update.

It works...

Needs an update for windows 10 mobile so the Navigation bar is removed. Other than that, it works.

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.

It works but it sucks that for every key press it buffers. Makes guide navigation terrible.

Works but what sucks is there is no way to run this app in background and just listen to audio, what's up with that?

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.
