You keep breaking the app 1/5
By R Bobby
The screen turns black when I hit a button. I know you need to optimize income. And you’re always chasing the maximum display to encourage purchases. Change your guiding principals and maybe the money will follow. Make it intuitive and easy to use... you keep changing it and breaking it when you do. Change slower...
Sensitive problem 3/5
By Wesley Brilhante
I’m trying the app cause my original controller broke and my universal one has problem with the back button but let’s get to the point this app is very good for me but the developers should look into the sensitivity levels of the buttons for example if I have my tv volume at 1 and I hit the + volume on the app just one time the volume of my tv should go up only to 2 but most of the time it keeps going all the way until it’s all the way to the maximum,it happens also with the arrows when I’m trying to switch apps with i hit whatever direction keeps going to that direction indefinitely so for me I’m just using as the home button and the back button the rest i can get around with the universal controller I bought
When it works it’s great... 2/5
It’s sooo annoying when my remote for my FireTV isn’t working/ can’t find it and then this app doesn’t connect either. It says connecting but ultimately (often) says can’t connect. I have tried redownlading it, signing in and out of my account but nothing! It just connects when it wants to and it’s frustrating. Idk what else I’m supposed to do but I expect the app to work better than it does. * update* unplugging my tv for 30 sec made the app reconnect but I don’t want to have to to that every time. I don’t know why my remote buttons correspond with different buttons on the remote (ex. the back button works as the select button) and how to fix it but that’s why I use the app because it’s annoying.
Nothing special 2/5
By pat oneal
This app works sometimes and that the best thing I can say about it. I bought a fire tv and the remote that came with it was amazing but, this app refuses to connect. It always says it’s connecting to my fire tv stick which would be great but I don’t have one. Closing the app and restarting doesn’t help either it stays on the screen that is trying to connect to my nonexistent fire tv stick. Overall if you lose your remote just buy a new one as this app is useless
Constantly Crashing! 1/5
For over a month the app is constantly crashing a disconnecting. The format on the Fire Tv changed but they haven’t updated the remote control app in over 2 months...with all the complaints below???? Do better Amazon.
Doesn’t work any more so it’s the ultimate best 5/5
By pvui ig
This app is the best app Spence my fire stick
Works occasionally 1/5
This is better than nothing when our kids run off with the actual remote. However, It is the glitchiest app I have ever dealt with. It freezes pretty much every time we use it and it will scan all the way down or to the right when you simply tap it. We have barely tap the screen and go slowly otherwise it just flies off on its own.
Tv Control 2/5
Keeps randomly crashing....
Update ruined app 1/5
App worked perfectly up until the most recent update. Constantly losing connection. Hard to navigate now.
Fire TV 5/5
Been using this app for 2 years know I love it
Keeps disconnecting 1/5
This keeps disconnecting. I have to restart my phone every time it disconnects. And it is over 10 times every day. I use the app for remote
TERRIBLE APP 1/5
I have never written a review in the 12+ years since owning a device that had apps on it. This is the worst app I have ever used. Do not download this.
FireTV App 4/5
I love this app because it gives me a much better way of controlling my Fire TV.
Works good 5/5
By Mustang R
Happy for this app since I couldn’t find my fire stick remote. It takes awhile to connect sometimes but hey it works 90% of the time.
Unable to control the volume 5/5
By Ravva 539
I love the application but I just wonder that I was not able to control the volume with the application
Kinda Sucky but comes in handy 3/5
Most of the time it doesn’t work when i need it to but i guess its my fault for loosing it.
I need it 5/5
My remote broke so I’ve been using this app for 2 - years now.
Everyone should have this app on every device.👍🏿
Latest update ruins fire tv 1/5
Low spec, garage support, but this latest update is unusable and ruins the tv experience. Good day sir.
It kinda works... 2/5
The garbage remote that came with my firestick stopped working so it’s either this or pay more for a replacement remote than I did for the initial firestick.
This app is super glitchy. Sometimes it loads, sometimes it works... lately when you move in a direction to navigate, it goes berserk and won’t stop. It regularly freezes and won’t work so I have to close it out and restart.
C’mon Amazon. You can do better than this. You certainly have enough money to hire better engineers to make a more reliable app.
I have no issues at all and when I do google always has the answers.
useless app that constantly disconnects
My tv is amazing but this remote works 25% of the time it’s a headache because my real remote barely works DONT DOWNLOAD THIS !!
Always unpairs from my Firestick 1/5
Could be so much better 2/5
The app disconnects while in use.
By Shay Shay78
It’s an okay app. Not really useful because the app rarely connects to the tv.
Love this 5/5
I love this my kids are always losing their remote it’s cause they are so little so now I have it on their tablet love it and it’s free.
No longer works with new update. Constantly loses connection and skips over apps when trying to navigate.
Poor usability on iPhone. 1/5
Continually have to power off/on iPhone to connect to device.
Zero stars 1/5
This remote is so horrible. It never connects. And when in the rare case that it does connect.. than I have to go through like 10 prompts just to do a simple thing like lower the volume.
I have kept up with updates and it has never ever been fixed.
Updates Ruined App 1/5
This app used to work flawlessly!!! Now since update when you navigate using the arrows it scrolls across menus uncontrollably. Never used to disconnect now it drops signal forcing you to reboot app 5+ times. Very disappointing willing to speculate Amazon just wants you to spend $30 to buy another remote. The new flaws in the firetv remote app is Annoying enough to consider trying a Roku out just to avoid buying another remote.
Review from a regular guy 4/5
By pmmp of the 855th
Excellent, works as advertised. Easy to use and convenient. No more searching for the remote, I can have my wife call my cell phone.
It won’t connect 1/5
It doesn’t work and won’t connect
Amazon get your stuff together! 1/5
A $billion dollar company and they have one of the worst app remotes I’ve ever used!!! Roku is flawless compared to Amazon‘s app.. it constantly freezes constantly resets itself and half the time doesn’t work all together.
Connection trouble 3/5
Doesn’t always connect to Bluetooth
By you cj
It doesn’t work properly on any phone or tablet. It always kick me disconnect me and it’s slow
Excelente app muy versátil 5/5
Se las recomiendo
Great app!! 4/5
By Jamie DeAnne
The Amazon Fire stick Remote app is fantastic and works flawlessly! The two issues I have are:
(1) It did not have an updated list of the apps on my FireStick this last time (We only use it when we do not feel like searching for the remote at night! ) It could be because I did not have Bluetooth on or because I did not give it time to load. This is why I rated it 4 vs. 3 ... in case I’m too tired and not paying attention. Will look further into that at another time!
(2)**** VOLUME!!!! ****
PLEEEEAASSEEE ADD VOLUME!! Our FireStick Remote has a volume button, therefore, we do not use a separate remote for volume! So when the remote is missing, you still have to deal with volume. This is not an issue bc I am too lazy to get up and walk to the tv but because the volume on the tv itself has sticky buttons and is a pain in the you know what to get working properly. So if I am going to deal with the hassle of my volume turning up when I go down, etc...I would honestly rather just find the remote! Either way, at that point, I am now wide awake and have to start the whole almost sleep process all over again! Other than those two, possibly one issue(s), it’s GREAT!
Thank You!! : )
Apple phone remote 1/5
By Ashleigh Carpenter
The Apple phone remote app for this is horrible. Roku and Apple remote on the iPhone is so much better!
From okay to horrible 1/5
By s.m. dennis
This app went from being a reliable alternative when the kids misplaced the remote to there’s an 80% chance the app won’t connect with the fire stick.
Connection issues are driving me insane 1/5
This remote constantly has issues staying connected to the fire stick.
App won’t sync to tv after it had been working for months. Uninstalled and reinstalled app a dozen times and nothing can’t get it to work at all
Horrible app 1/5
Never works constantly disconnects, do not get this app.
Great for me 5/5
Y’all it works fine for me it’s not the app code just not working. And no this is not sponsored.
Disconnects all the time 1/5
Disconnects all the time then you cannot reconnect. I have other devices with other apps throughout my house and never have a problem. But this app is always giving me problems.
Freezes up and has a mind of its own! 1/5
For the first few days the remote controller worked well. I was thrilled because I lost my other remote that actually came with the device so this one was a godsend. That was, until it started going haywire and scrolling on its own! Not to mention, it disconnects and reconnects on its own and sometimes it doesn’t work at all! I don’t know what to do.
Great app 5/5
No ads on it like the other remote app and it’s free
Update please 3/5
I need to be able to turn my television up with my app just like on my Roku app the app need a lot of toon ups
Very satisfied 5/5
By L Redd6768
Love this app!
