A must if you have a Fire TV 5/5
Great remote app with a keyboard that saves time!
It's 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 5/5
Love it 5/5
By RC in SC
No need to worry about dead batteries!
When it works its awesome 3/5
It's a really good app. My main complaint is that it constantly loses connection and won't reconnect.
Won't connect. 1/5
Literally standing right next to it and it won't connect. I signed into my Amazon account and it pulls up but keeps saying it can't connect. I'm disappointed.
Never works 1/5
Good luck getting it to work it just freeZes
Better than expected 5/5
I have big hands and do not like the size of the small fire stick remote plus it kept getting misplaced. This app works great and the keyboard feature makes it a lot easier to enter information.

This remote works great!! Lost our original remote and this one works just as good if not better!!
App better than a remote! 5/5
Love this app.
Better than the remote 5/5
I rarely use the remote. The app is 10x better. Especially, when it comes to using the keyboard.
By Every one I've tried is taken
Love this app. Makes set up of the fire stick much easier, typing in on your phone instead of using the remote and the dark ages method.
Wish list: Would be great if we could control volume with either Apple or remote, but I'm sure Amazon will figure that one out eventually.
Wondering if that same remote could be programmed to use with echo dot at the same time, just by calling "echo". That would be cool.
It would also be nice if you could use the remote to turn the fire stick on and off. Then you could turn it off and tell echo what music to play, without having to have the screen on.
Love the fire stick 5/5
I love using my fire stick and the app on my phone I can keep the remote in my room and have use the app for the firestick but it seems like they took shows off but very great
Wish we would o stayed with Roku. We never had any issues with it like we do Firestick. The app works only seldom.
Good app, does what it's supposed to.
Thumbs up 5/5

Fire-Stick remote on my phone 5/5
It's asome to go to the home page and see how easy it to select my options on prime for movies and shows at a touch of a button. I placed my router next to the TV and it is all nice, quick and clear. I use my phone instead of the remote for fas video entertainment.
We love this! The app is great too.
No good 1/5
Constant disconnects makes the app unusable. Always has difficulty finding and connecting to the device.
Loving the experience 5/5
It's great to have access to various movies in different genres. Although some movies don't come through that are listed it's usually a matter of time before they are accessible. As long as there is a strong Wi-Fi connection the speed is great! Very happy with the purchase!
Awesome app awesome remote just all around great.
Awesome remote 5/5
By Tooth g sdk
Love the remote works as it should thank u
My remotes kept dying so I downloaded this on all my devices it's awesome!
Cable Killer!!!!! 4/5
By Port City Playaz
Enjoy the product. Intuitive.
DISCONNECTS ALL THE TIME!!!!!! 1/5
I cannot believe Amazon. They make such a good device with a horrible remote, and an app that's got great features but I can't even take advantage of cause it disconnects every 10 seconds. LITERALLY!!!! I really hope they fix this problem.
Better than remote 5/5
I love fire tv and the app itself is better than any remote I have.
Easy peasy 5/5
Now I don't have to look for the remote. Super easy to use. No complaints!
Great tool 5/5
I can control all our fire sticks. The kids tend to misplace the remotes
Remote is great when it works but a pain when it quits
love it 5/5

Doesn't work well with multiple devices 2/5
By Dr. Tuitupou
I have a 2nd Fire Stick, and it always has trouble connecting to the 2nd one. I've tried all the troubleshooting stuff, but it doesn't work.
Love it. 5/5
Got Amazon TV because i had to air play to watch prime content. This blows Apple TV out of the water
love u 5/5
wish i could control the volume tho
Overall Happy With It 4/5
Every once in awhile it doesn't want to connect. Could be my phone instead of the app.
Love it 5/5
Very easy to use. As long as I have the phone, I have a remote. 😉😉
It's great, but wish they'd fix the actual remotes 4/5
This app is good enough, generally connects well and don't have many issues with using the Fire TV HD, but it's really a shame that I have to resort to this. The physical remotes they make are ridiculously cheap and unreliable.
Easier than keeping up with another remote 5/5
By Pipe Wilson
Great app 5/5
There are always a million apps to do the same thing which is what I thought this was going to be but I was pleasantly surprised. Works well, simple and efficient. Very pleased.
Don't know what I would do without it!! 5/5
Have 2 Firesticks and both of the remotes disengage from their Firesticks. I have to revert to app to watch them!! I would like to have a better forward/reverse process. Love Fire TV, but you need a steady supply of batteries for the remotes!!!
Better than the remote 5/5
This simple to use app is better than the little remote that comes with the device. Which is good since that remote used to always be either lost or low on batteries. It sometimes takes 15-30 seconds to reload if I wasn't logged into the wifi, but that's better than 5 minutes searching for the remote or hunting for new batteries every few months.
It's an awesome idea but my remote constantly gets disconnected and then I have to use my phone which also ALWAYS gets booted off.
Among the best 5/5
I'm impressed with the interface and overall performance.
Fire TV Remote. Awesome 5/5
By Nice Heights
Came thru when I lost my actual remote. With voice and easy access to my apps. Way better than what I lost.
It is Soooo Good 5/5
By DC in AR
This app is so much better than the very basic, no not very basic, but extremely basic remote that is included with the Fire TV device. Just having the keyboard for typing is enough reason for me quit using the remote most of the time.
Bottom line for me is that I love using this app.
Thank you Amazon! 5/5
Fire TV kicks butt and this remote app is so good. Smashes Apple TV and Roku. Great job!
I loved the original remote that came with the fire stick, until it broke a month later. I also appreciate that Amazon knew the remote would break so they cleverly made a terrible app to replace the remote. Now my choices are to stick with the terrible app or pay for a remote that is 3/4th the price of the entire amazon fire stick. Instead of doing that I will just write a bad review and hope someone fixes the lag that is inherent when connecting over wifi to control the fire stick. One star
Better than I Imagined 5/5
I have no complaints. It's better than I imagined. And being a prime member offers sooo much more. Definitely a YES!!!
Super convenient 5/5
By Caligula Little Boots
I never use the Alexa remote anymore. Having a keyboard in particular makes this the preferred remote.
App keep disconnecting 3/5
Overall good app. You can do a lot of function. But the app keep disconnecting and won't connect at all
decent but laggy 3/5
whenever i go to use it, it takes a second to find the remote which is annoying but not a dealbreaker. i like the app otherwise!
