App is better than remote 5/5
As was the case with several other reviewers on here, my remote stopped working; however, I prefer this app to the remote. When I'm watching YouTube on my phone, I can transfer the video to my t.v. screen without having to navigate any menus or anything- I just touch an icon above the video, use the "input" setting that my firebox is plugged into, and can even line up following videos in a queue to watch next.
Connectivity issues 1/5
I am always having issues with the app connecting to the fire stick. I am always having to delete the app and redownload.
NOT DOWNLOADING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 1/5
Lost the remote and been trying to download it for the past 3 hours but not downloading. And apparently i'm not the only one with this issue!
Not even letting me download 1/5
It's not even letting me download the app I don't approve!
Horrible connectivity 1/5
Worse app remote EVER!
Wondeful App 5/5

Great device but old folks may find it confusing 4/5
By Al of Nassau
Love my fire stick. I have 4. I get somewhat flummoxed with all the hoops I must go through to reach my shows/movies. Still a 4 out of 5.
LOVE IT!! 5/5
By ICIB ZOMBIE
Always thought the original remote would work better than the app but I just recently tried it and I love it to death!! Recommend this app for all FireStick users
Great option for fire tv. 4/5
Only thing is show will randomly stop and I am not sure how to correct? Other than that a dreamy app
I use this daily! 5/5
This app is great! If you can't find your remote it works perfectly. You can use it on multiple Fire sticks for different tv's under the one app.
Doesn't Deserve One Star 1/5
By Sunshine and Lolipops
I am a total Amazon fan, but this is the worst product Amazon has ever made. This app crashes every 10 to 30 seconds. And it is extremely hard to control when it does work. We lost our fire remote and it will take several months to receive a replacement. Makes me want to go back to Roku.
Great addition 4/5
Really helps out when your kids are know to tote your remotes all over Gods creation lol.
The BEST 5/5
I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!!!!
Cindi's Fyre 5/5

Casting or Mirror 1/5

My remote stopped working and this app saved my life. Probably works better than the actual remote.
Love it 5/5
Two simple words "love it." It has meet all my needs and expectations.
Not able to use the app to search using rote in youtube.... 1/5
Worst worst worst..did not even pass the basic smome test..how couild they even pass the basic QA test?? I really wonder what kind of dev/qa people are.handling this app..real pity to amazon..
Good stuff! 5/5
By italian dj
Great app 5/5
I haven't written a review in 5 years. This app saves a lot of time and I don't need an extra keyboard
Amazon fire stick 5/5
By Isaiah .p
Amazon fire stick is awsome
Rowan not work ever 1/5
My fire tv stick doesn't work it doesn't play skips episodes and stops and goes!! It's horrible idk if I got a bad stick or not but it doesn't work
Nice and easy 5/5
Great app for my phone and iPad. Smooth as butter!
By Kaye V
I don't know how you could give fire TV anything less than five stars. It's simple to use. Easy to install and completely affordable. You win, amazon.
It's okay 3/5
It's great when there are no connection issues!
The App wouldn't let me sign into my Amazon account... and we don't have wifi. We use our phones' hot spots for internet... so even though the stick will run off of it, the app won't...
Could use Minor Improvements 3/5
There's a pretty substantial amount of lag when using the touch pad feature. Also occasionally slow to reconnect as well as randomly disconnects.
Very handy app! 5/5
Comes in handy when we lose the remote, which is lost all the time...sometimes for days. Good app!
It's pretty good l. Have a little bit of a hard time sometimes but that might just be me
Superior to PC 5/5
I have found the Amazon fire stick to be by far superior to a PC when it comes to Internet media streaming.
Smooth video, and stable audio, very good Internet connection speeds. it works exactly as advertised and better.
By André Le Comte
Fire TV is great and the remote app works very well. The gestures are intuitive and it's easy to connect.
Made it easier 5/5
Makes typing easier also
This app is a lifesaver. My toddler has a habit of stealing our remotes and hiding them in ridiculous places. This app is the only way we're able to watch tv when the remote is MIA. Now, if only my tv and DVD players had remote apps like this.
Never works 1/5
Only works about 10% of the time. Good when it does work.
Never loose it 3/5
We always loose the remote with a 1 and 2 year old running around no clue where it could be but when we want to watch the fire stick we can
Works Smoothly 5/5
No issues I've come across. Good app.
Not a problem 5/5
By Beretta Biz
Works like a charm...thanks for the creation of this 🙌🏾
When you come back to the app they usually restarts itself and asked you to log back in there's no way to a race all the fire sticks but other than that it works great
Dog ate my remote 5/5
The dog ate our remote so I figured I would give the app a try. It works great, I like it way better that the remote. Easier to scroll their apps and type to search. Also, I lose it way less.
Not happy 2/5
Doesn't connect well at all
I love it!! 5/5
By TAMEIKA S
Saved me from so many frustrating and fruitless remotes searches
Really good 4/5
The remote stopped working so I was glad that the app works just as well as the remote
Gave my life new meaning. 5/5
I never....ever write reviews, but this app is a top 3 for me. My iPhone, without this app, is just another iPhone. But with the addition of this app, my iPhone is a window into a world of endless possibilities. I lost my fire tv remote over a year ago, and I've been using this remote app ever since. I will say, that when I first started using it, I had trouble connecting my app to the fire stick. That was a pain, but I don't believe it was an issue with the app so much as it may have been an issue with my wifi connection paired with an outdated iPhone. Since I've upgraded all of those other factors, I've never had an issue. The app is easy to use, I love the ability to use the keyboard when searching. Anybody who had complaints or has given this a bad review is out of their mind. 10 out of 10.
I love this app 5/5
This app works very well easy to use I am always losing the fire stick remote so this has been very helpful to me.
It would be great if it didn't have to reconnect every time you come back to the app. Which takes forever sometimes. Other times it just won't connect. It's great besides that; but I find myself using the regular remote a lot more now.
Great app 5/5
Now I don't have to find the remote
Highly annoying 1/5
We've already had to replace our remote twice and we haven't even owned the Firestick more than 8 months. On top of the fact that we've replaced the batteries multiple times. Plus the processor is so slow. Wouldn't recommend.
This app saved my weekend. Planned a weekend to binge watch old episodes of Cold Case until my remote stopped working...no reason as to why. This actually works better than the remote!
