It made a huge difference Very easy to use A must have app                Sweet
The UI is a little dated but the calibration tools are solid and straightforward Red filtered camera for color adjustments and AirPlay support make it even easier Thanks                Exactly what I was looking for
It is no longer working since the iOS 9 update It quits as soon as you launch    Stopped Working with iOS 9
This app is just great simply put Perfect for any home theater novice or expert everything you need to calibrate your system in the palm of your hands                THX App
Cool useful app to calibrate my picture but an HDMI Cable is needed for the 51 speaker test this hints at a future enhancement required to AirPlay support true surround sound so I need no HDMI cable Also needs 2160P4K support             No 4K support but HDMI Cable needed for 51 test
Need new update IOS public beta 9 broke this version                New update please
I hate anything but plasma I just did a calibration on my parents LCD and WOW what a HUGE difference Its like night and day I also sell tvs and other electronics and take it from a specialist this App is near perfection Only takes 1520 minutes of your time depending on how picky you are so of course I took forever Did each test twice and came up with nearly identical results This app is a must have Pair with an Apple hdmi and youre set                Perfect calibration tool
Nothing left to say                Works Great
His app is awesome very userfriendly and helpful Check it out My display looks much better now                Thanks
on iPad at least opens but on iPhone crash on launch    broken on iPhone
Please update    Crashes at launch on iOS 9
Worked wonderfully until iOS9 update now it wont even start Fix iOS compatibility issues and Ill gladly edit review    Wont start in iOS9
Itll cost you a 50 adapter to make it work    Bait and Switch
CRASHES when opening on IOS 9    Unless on IOS 9
I was pulling my hair out trying to tune my tv over the last couple of years Id used online recommendations for settings tried using test images anything I could find This is fast easy and gave me the best picture Ive ever had on the tv Awesome product                Just What I Needed
At first I didnt think this would do much but boy was I wrong Easy instructions and pictures My tv image looks amazing now and I can see what Im missing My tv is less than a year old Sony and I had the picture adjustments all wrong FIOS and Xbox One looks so much better Glad I had a Apple TV to do this Recommend you try this with your TV took less than 20 mins and didnt pay a dime                Amazing Picture
Recommended by salesman when I bought a samsung 55 smart tv The app moves too quickly for me and is not user friendly    Doesnt work for me
This version broke the app The get started video doesnt load making this app useless until fixed    Broken
I love this app I have never given any app I have ever used a five star rating except this one I never knew what I was missing out on I love it It has fixed both annoying video issues and annoying sound issues in my system Easily worth the price                Night and Day difference
Worked great The instructions were easy to follow and my tv looks much better now Also love having the THX trailers to impress annoy my family                I loved it
I recently purchased a Panasonic 50 inch plasma tv The THX program was a simple and effective way to fine tune the many settings found on most televisions today Through the Apple TV interface the operator was able to see improvements in the picture quality as you went through the settings The picture on my tv is stunning and I am extremely happy with this program The program also has a means to tune up the audio surround settings but I have not gone through that section yet I expect similar results as the company THX is known worldwide for its audio excellence                THX Tuneup works great
App wont open with iOS 9    Need iOS 9 compatibility
Essential iOS app to setup a proportionate and balanced Hometheater system                Essantial nice app
Was a decent app but has be neglected by the developer for over a year with lack of updates With the release of iOS 9 it is now unusable do not waste your money until it has been updated    Needs Update
No ChromeCast Come on    No ChromeCast
I am not a videophile by any means So my assumption is that this works right The picture afterward seems good but its hard for me to tell how much better it really is Its pretty easy to use but some of the camera portions are hard when its tethered to the TV             Seems to Work
Only supports 51 in testing setup function The cool trailers why one might purchase the app are only in stereo Autodetect surround works great when calibrating each speaker but then play one of the THX trailers included in the app and it is just stereo Yes I am using required HDMI cable and selected 51 in setup I purchased just for the trailers Thought they would be fun too bad    No surround on cool trailers
Amazing little tool especially for my appleTV Projector setup As the amount of ambient light changes in the room this THX app lets me customize perfect presets Thanks                Phenomenal
Ive used this on several TVs and projectors and I am surprised that most dont need any tweaking at all theyre quite good right out of the boxOnly thing keeping this from getting 5 stars the THX trailers dont play I keep getting Sorry this video doesnt exist My wifi is on but no joy             Surprising results with default TV settings
Will there be an update for iOS 9 SoonPlease                I love this app but
If you have no idea what a good picture looks like or have accidentally ruined your image by fiddling then this might get you back in the ballparkI tested it on my hi end plasma and the results from the adjustments made using the iPad camera were ridiculousHonestly I got a better result from the TVs default Movie mode turning off all the auto settings and notching back the contrast saturation and detail Much better resultIf you want to really get the best from your TV pay a calibrator       Middling
It bumped off the AppleTV mirroring after the intro video and I had to enable mirroring again Seems to be a common issue you have to enable mirroring by dbl tapping the home button and scroll all the way left to get the airplay optionThat and there are no other adjustments like sharpness and other settings my set has But for what it does it does very well             Great app needs a few tweaks
Love this app wish they would have this native on the Apple TV too                Awesome
Loved this app until iOS update Now every time I try to open the red camera filter it crashes    Crashes now
Looks like a great app but appears to need an update for iOS 9 usage Crashes on launch    Does not appear to be compatible with iOS9
I was having problems with the colors from the Apple TV on my SONY XBR I played with the settings forMonths and never fixed the problem Until I used this app the colors on the tv never looked better                Useful
I heard about this app and was hesitant to use but glad I did it does make a big difference in sound and picture                Nice app great pic sound upgrade
Glad to use this app the other day when I couldnt find my THX filter glasses Makes it a lot easier to configure a new TV This app is very thorough and has great instructions                No more glasses
Please add support for bad pixels hunting             Bad pixels
It beats using the TV default settings Plus I love using this app on all my televisions to make the picture look as close as they can to a movie theater picture                Does what it says
Give me chromecast support Even if there are some limitations it shows that you are improving             Im prerating this app
Not expecting an update either    App crashes on iOS 901
Need HDMI cable or Apple TV to use I wish they wouldve mentioned that sooner    Terrible app
I have used this app in the past with great results however it doesnt seem to work on iOS 9 and crashes when you open the app I hope this is something the developers will look into             Works not on iOS 9
This app is a must for anyone who buys a new TV or TV sound system and wants it to look and sound great Simple to use walks you right thru everything and only takes about 15 minutes Brilliant Thanks for making this                Fantastic app
Lost the ability to play thx trailers which was always cool to show off my sound system          Good app used to be great
I adjusted my projector perfectly based on this app The color was way off Then used a calibration BluRay found on the rainforest website I think you can guess what that website is called and fixed the terrible color recommended settings from this app You need tinted glasses or a tinted color card to properly adjust the blue red and green Once I calibrated to the bluRay and changed my settings from what color settings were recommended by this app the difference was amazing This just doesnt cut it for color adjustment Brightness and contrast are good A note to THX Come on guys you need to adjust colors for blue first then verify it for red and green This app needs to be fixed so people can calibrate their color property       Not as good as it seems
The app stopped working after updating to iOS9    iOS9
Not all receivers and projectors are in the selection Needs option for 72 surround sound          Needs more options
Cant open the app on iOS 9    Crashes on open with iOS 9
