Should not use CPU or data unless running. Had to uninstall because it was doing background things that I didn't want to eat battery. Should establish connection and anything elso only after opening.

Great remote, not working on Wear? Works great, for some reason the music controls on Android wear don't work. Strange as the notification controls work perfectly.

Only Musicbee remote on the market! After working flawlessly in previous versions, the new material design version can't find my computer on the phone nor can I add it manually. Updated the application + plugins already, any tips? EDIT: Tried again manually to add it after a couple of tries and it seems to have worked!

Fantastic! Once I remembered to edit the firewall rules on my PC, this remote connected like a charm and works great. I really like the way you can minimize it into the notification bar so you can just pull it down from the top of the screen to skip a song, change volume, or what have you without having to leave your current app. Look forward to seeing expanded features in future versions.
