Will not connect 1/5
The only reason I use the app is because the tiny remote is forever being misplaced and I refuse to pay $25 for a new one. But anytime my screen turns off on my phone or tablet, the app disconnects from the fire tv device and will not reconnect. I have to close the app several times and restart it before it connects again. Very very frustrating.
It works, sometimes... Buggy as hell
Great App 5/5
It's so much better to use the app than the remote especially for searching.
Ever since the update... 1/5
It won't connect to the device... Help!
Good app 4/5
Good app! Adding a paste option when using the keyboard would be cool
Clunky to use 2/5
By Athena Lawrence
The main reason to use a remote app vs a physical remote is for the full keyboard. There is room for a lot of improvement there. Being able to copy and paste would be a huge plus. But for now since there is no copy paste, when I have to enter a long search term or address I have to leave the remote app for a second to glance at my browser... and then when I come back the app has closed the keyboard and I have to re-open it. Very frustrating.
No more batteries 5/5
By Rocks San Antonio
My teenagers constantly lose the remote and I hate buying batteries so I love this app!
Needs headphone support 3/5
By Anonymous User 23579
Good app. Has all the features of the physical remote and now you can reorder apps. If they could just add headphone support for personal listening like Roku has, the app would be almost perfect.
I love it. It's fast. Free. And I have absolutely no problems with. No glitches no nothing. Thank you
Good, needs update 3/5
Great app for when our dog ate the remote. Would be great if the keyboard would integrate into the search function of apps like YouTube.
Disconnects too frequently 3/5
It's neat, that's for sure. But it disconnects from iPhone 6 too frequently and sometimes it's unable to connect again. Very irritating and doesn't make sense, because it never has any problems with the iPad. (Yes I've done the updates and yes, it's connected to the correct wifi).

Freedom from cable tv! No other options they said, oh but I do and paying you is not one of them.
Awesome app 5/5
Best app ever
Fire stick tv 4/5
I had trouble with finding the right kodi app, I have installed wookie app and now I am very impressed
Connection issue 2/5
Keeps disconnecting from fire stick and only works if connected to wifi.
Great New Toy For Me 5/5
Love having the option of diff networks. Love having the fire stick remote on my iPhone.
Seeing a lot of positive reviews that I cannot relate to 3/5
By Jeff homebody
I'm seeing a lot of positive reviews I cannot relate to, for me on my iPhone 6, it is very leggy and tends to freeze up or just shut itself off, I have a jailbroken fire stick which I use Kodi on. My opinion for that is you better have extremely fast Internet and nothing else streaming off of the same Wi-Fi or you will be buffering a lot and it will take you about two hours to watch something that's an hour and 20 minutes long
This app is decent. The remote works good when it is actually connected. It has to connect to the stick every time it is used whic causes delays. Sometimes it doesnt connect at all...
The worst UI and user experience of any app I've used before 1/5
Won't Connect Anymore 3/5
By dae daddyyyyyyyyt
I have 2 Firesticks but is only displaying 1 of them 😤😤
Sometimes does not work 3/5
Remote app sometimes does not work. Phone stops detecting firestick.
We have trouble keeping track of remotes so we found this app and it is wonderful. So easy to use ! What a cool idea!
Horrible reliability 1/5
Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't need to fix immediately
Lost the remote. Works so much better 5/5
Only good because the remote is so bad 3/5
This app is essential. It will quickly be your main way to control your fire stick. But that will be because your fire remote will chew through batteries like pacman goes through power pellets.
The app itself needs to reconnect every time you use it. So, say you want to pause something because your phone is ringing. You just have to switch to the app, wait for it to reconnect, hit pause, and by this point your call has gone to voice mail.
Yeah. So. Slow, not great at switching apps, but better than the plastic battery drainer called a remote that needs changing every three days.
Life saver!! 5/5
By Shelby 🙃
It's Sunday and I'm in my pajamas so that means I'm not leaving the house. Anyways, I've been getting this cute little message saying my batteries are dying but ya know, I ignore it until today when my remote stops working and I'm out of AAA batteries!!! So I'm freaking out and crossing my fingers that this app existed and it does!!! I actually prefer using the app over the remote. Y'all the real MVP.
Fire TV rocks, cut the cable 5/5
Works great. I do not miss cable TV.
No Use 1/5
Brought fire stick on vacation but forgot the remote. Thought this would help, but apparently you need to set it up before you leave when you are on the same network it was connected to. Can't just connect over Bluetooth.
Does the job whenever I can't find the remote 5/5
By T Saleh
Does the job whenever I can't find the remote
Love it ! Works perfectly
This app doesn't pair to my iPhone 6s+ at all. I've done everything the app has told me to do as in trying to fix it and it just doesn't work. Just a waste of time!!
Saved my sanity 5/5
By Shopping list is on the table
Fire TV is great except for the tiny remote enjoyed by hungry couches everywhere. Having the app on my phone has saved us several times.
Great accessory to the tv box 5/5
Works well - especially for searching for content.
A 5)⭐️App. !!! 5/5
They really help a lot !!! It works nice, when you get used to the swiping. Then, it's smooth sailing. gxp. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ : Thank You !!!
2) Still works GREAT !!!
The keyboard option is a necessary option. Trying to slide around with the factory kybrd is almost impossible !!! Another BIG T⃣H⃣A⃣N⃣K⃣ y⃣O⃣U⃣! ! !
And five stars-again !!!
3) Great Stuff ! Kybrd is still the best !!!
And five stars-again !!!
I DO mean -AGAIN !!!
... ... ...
4) Best app. on my phone. Kybrd works GREAT ! All the other tools do exactly as they should. Can't stop using it. I'd give it 10 stars if I could. Great job ! ! ! ! !
... ... ...
5) Still can't say enough GOOD things on this App. If you have communication troubles during storms, you might consider putting your WIFI on a diff. provider. Then you get a) network for your 'box', b) antenna for 'line-of-sight info, and WIFI for Apple. Have a REAL ' land-line' for your phone carrier & that's all you can do - other than a SW-set.
Great App. Keep it up, APPLE !!!
Love it 5/5
Great when it works, but... 2/5
When the app remote connects to the firestick it's great, but it's so seldom these days that I've went back to using the remote all the time. I've tried everything, I've signed out, signed in, restarted my phone etc, but nothing seems to permanently fix it. It's always given my wife and I trouble connecting, but for about a week now it hasn't worked once. I'm glad it works for some people, I wish it was seamlessly working for us too.
i want to type in the movie that i'm searching for but the remote takes to long for me

Works great! 5/5
By Love country!
Easy, fast & reliable.
Love being able to use the keyboard function to type.
Amazing! Needs Apple Watch remote though... 5/5
Nothing remotely negative to say about this app. Well done Amazon. Now it's time you get on par with Xfinity and develop a 4 way pointer remote app for the Apple Watch. My watch is always on me.
This app hardly ever picks up the device and when It does, it ends up crashing.
Amazing app !! 5/5
I cant find my remote which stopped working anyways and my brother told me about this and it works perfectly and i love it !! Thank you
Great convenient app 5/5
