App Reviews

  • Bad connection

    By dmartinez811
    I first discovered the app when a girl friend connected it to change what I was playing, I thought this could be handy! A few months after I got my fire stick the remote stopped working, I thought it was strange, changed the batteries but nothing. That’s when I really started using the app. It worked great at first but as days went on it would take a long time to find and connect to the fire stick. I tried my controller again which magically worked again. About a year later my dog chewed the controller so only the up and left button worked as well as the other so I couldn’t use it on the home screen since the down and right button didn’t work. Again same problem with the app, it can connect right away at times. Sometimes I have to try and connect 3-5 times meaning closing and opening the app. Other than getting connected the app works great! I like the keyboard feature which didn’t work for my iPhone 6s until the 11 generation update.
  • Please give us a better update with this app

    I’ve been using this app for maybe a year now and I love the fact that we have this as a backup as our other remote is broken. Now, since using this app, it has been a lifesaver! But, for some reason it doesn’t always want to connect to my fire tv and when I’m selecting it seems the “button” gets stuck. It’ll skip all over the place! I don’t know if it’s the version of iPhone I have (6 Plus) or just the app itself. And sometimes Alexa doesn’t always work within this app either. I might just need to buy another remote and simply use this for emergency cases. Which I’m sure that is what was intended when created, however, it doesn’t seem practical to use daily with the issues that I am experiencing. Overall, it’s great in a bind and although the issues I am experiencing are frustrating, it gets the job done!

    This App is great if your batteries on your physical remote go out or if you lose your remote. There are two main issues that I have with this App. The first one are connectivity to the actual fire stick. Sometimes the app doesn’t want to connect to the fire stick or there are issues while using the app. The second issue is the fact that the home button is right above the pause/play button and in order to get the pause/play you have to swipe up from the bottom of your device. The issue is the app automatically times out the pause and play button leaving the home button in the exact same place where you might have wanted to press pause/play. I’ve hit the home button many times thinking it was the pause/play button and it’s so frustrating to be watching a show and get completely kicked out to the home screen. Developers need to please fix that!
  • Bad Remote or Not - This App is Perfect!

    By JunkWithSpunk
    Thought the batteries went dead in our Fire TV remote we’d only had a couple months, replaced the batteries, troubleshooted, contacted support, tried everything under the sun to no avail. Discovered this app and was back in business! It’s actually easier to use than the remote because it has a keyboard so saves a lot of time when searching for something, and I love how you can swipe up to fast forward 10 minutes, or swipe right to FF 10 seconds - it’s been SO much better than using the FF button that takes wayyy too long to buffer through everything. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
  • Absolutely great!!

    Takes a while to get used to, but after experimentation and learning curve over a few days I never use my remotes. The keyboard function for typing on the phone, app select screen that you can arrange like iPhone home screen, convenience of phone and eliminating battery replacement make this app a no brainer. Ignore the idiot who calls it a bad execution of a good concept. He either didn’t take time to learn or is challenged. I’d give it 5 stars if there was a way to long press the select cursor. Some apps use that function as a shortcut or to make selections such as add to favorites. It would also be nice to have the clock display on the screen like most other iOS apps.
  • Used to work just fine, but not anymore

    By Jacbos
    I've been using this app in lieu of the physical remote for over a year. I don't know if there was a recent update or what, but in the past week this app has become impossible to use. Despite detecting my firetv box right away, it takes forever to connect, or just won't connect at all. If I'm lucky enough to get it to connect, it doesn't stay connected for longer than a minute. I've done everything from resetting the firetv, to resetting my modem/router, to uninstalling and reinstalling the app, and I still get connection issues. Please fix, it worked fine before and I prefer it over the hard remote. Also because I can't find the old remote the firetv box came with, basically making me SOL.
  • Used to be a lot better

    After a lot of digging and countless batteries I discovered that due to the fire stick remote being blue tooth it drains batteries much quicker and this is a known issue with it. With that there truly needs to be an app in lieu of the one provided as many people will continue to have this issue. I started using this app over 2 years ago and loved it! It saved my frustration over the ever dying remote and I could let anyone in the house have their own remote. It never gets lost! Over the last 2-3 months the app is impossible to get it to connect and once you do have it connected it often disconnects shortly after. Please fix whatever bug is causing the issues!

    I thought I already wrote a review for this lousy app months ago! I was so glad to delete it off my phone, but unfortunately our fire stick remote broke (that’s the second one to stop working, and no, resetting it with the home button doesn’t work). So UNFORTUNATELY, I again have this miserable app on my phone. It loses connection, takes forever to “reconnect”, then it doesn’t even find my device at all even though I’m signed in! Since my remote is broken and i can’t connect to the fire stick with the app, my son can’t watch cartoons this morning like he wants to!!! Tried troubleshooting, restarting both my phone and the fire stick to no avail. Idk what they need to do to fix this but they should figure it out. I’m tired of paying for fire stick remotes every 6 months. At least the app is free.
  • Download Now, Highly Recommended

    I have an iPhone 7 and my boyfriend has an iPhone 10 and this app works phenomenally with the fire stick. Easy to use, very convenient, connects easily to all fire sticks allowing you to choose which fire stick you want the remote to connect to, and so far has zero bugs. I’ve had no issues with this app within the past month. Personally, even if I still had the fire stick remote, I would still use the app over the remote any day. Interface is nice, clean, and easy to use, and resembles the remote exactly. If it’s free, why not?

    We lost the FireStick remote in a move. Unfortunately, new remotes are on back order for the next month. I downloaded this app hoping it would be a good fix-gap. Sometimes, it works okay. Other times, it cannot connect to the FireStick. Even when the stick is connected to the internet and working perfectly well. Every time you need to use the app, it has to re-connect to the FireStick. This is a process that may take 5 seconds, or may take 2 minutes... while you're waiting to pause the show or make a selection. Then there are times that it refuses to connect at all. Extremely frustrating. I'm holding my breath until I can get a new remote next month!
