It always disconnects and it never stay connected! They need to fix the bugs on this app!
By Adviser person
So the first couple months I got this app it was totally fine, but whenever I try to use it now, even when I delete it and get it again it will do the same thing. I have like 4 fire sticks in my house in each room and in our family room. None of the fire sticks show up on this app, if you want more people to use this app I suggest you fix this problem.
Glitchy Waste of Time 1/5
By Jaime Hates The Comments
It rarely connects, and freezes when it does. Not worth it. Just buy a new remote
Fire stick remote app 5/5
By mr bigwayne
It's works well for me, I drop my remote in a bucket of water, I order another remote but before the remote was deliver to me I found this app in my App Store and really I could of saved my money from the remote I purchased because this app does more than the remote I purchase.
Reconnecting issues 3/5
Please fix the reconnection issues.
Please fix this app!! 2/5
When it works it works great! But that’s only like 20% of the time. This thing is so hit or miss. I’m constantly having to delete and re download to try to get it to work. Or signing out and signing back in etc..... very frustrating
The worst 1/5
It’s completely unreliable- freezes, glitches, hardly ever connects
Miss the old app 2/5
The old app atleast worked again after force closing.. this update is constantly freezing on me and even after I force close it, it does nothing. Very disappointed
Hate this app 1/5
I hate this app so much, it almost always has issues connecting to my fire stick and if my phone turns off, it constantly needs to reconnect. Why can’t they come up with a thing that just connects to the fire tv constantly? I downloaded this because I lost my remote and I just wish I could find it again because I’m so sick of using this.
I hate this app!!!!! Always loses connection! 1/5
By 10yr huntington customer
Constantly have to reconnect. Restart app. Doesn’t work. Unplug firestick. Delete app & reinstall. Multiple times per day. No workarounds. Absolutely awful. There is no other option so you’re stuck with this god awful app that doesn’t even work. I regret switching to fireTV’s from Roku because of this app.
Can’t copy paste! 1/5
So bad for entering passwords. Unlike Roku’s, you can’t copy paste or use shortcut text replacements with its keyboard (for email address). And because you can’t look at your password app on your phone at the same time it’s pointless for entering user name / passwords. So you are forced to use use the lousy on TV screen keyboard. That takes away the main purpose of the keyboard.
never works 1/5
garbage app. it never works it's garbage
Wont Connect 1/5
The app will not connect to my devices half the time. It’s not my network as all other devise’s app remotes such as Roku, AppleTv, etc. connect without any trouble.
Keeps trying to reconnect 1/5
Seriously need to improve this app or you will continue to lose customers!!
Sometimes works great sometimes doesn’t work at all 2/5
Sometimes works great sometimes doesn’t work at all
Don’t bother 1/5
By Brandy LaShay
I have tried for weeks to get a solid 5 minutes of use out of this app and it’s absolutely useless. I officially declare it trash. Don’t waste your time with it. Find something else.
Used to work... 1/5
Not sure what happened to this app. Used to work great. Now it just freezes and crashes. Every once in awhile it will work, but very rarely.
My 13yr old washed my remote 2/5
I downloaded this to avoid having to purchase a new remote. But this app freezes constantly. I have to shut my phone down or miss a show band cause if I’m talking or working I can’t keep shutting my phone off. This needs to be fixed.
Barely works 2/5
The app is constantly struggling to connect with and not showing my fire stick even before the increased internet use with Covid 19.
Barely Works 1/5
My remote quit working two months into buying the Firestick and since it’s $20+ I started using this app. Very unreliable and rarely connects when I need it. THE WORST APP!!!! Especiallly since the remotes dont work!
Keeps responding 2/5
By Foxy Phillips(furry)
Every time I go out and in of the app it stays on responding and I have to restart the app!
Doesn’t work most of the time 1/5
Doesn’t work most of the time and always reconnecting. Very frustrating when I’m paying for Netflix and Disney+ and cant watch them because this app doesn’t work right!
Never working 1/5
It always has trouble working. Some times it’s on the remote screen but doesn’t work. Or the most recent issue is it won’t go past the tv remote option.
Worked just fine before the update. 1/5
Title says it all.
It sort of works 1/5
It works when your firestick remote dies (like the last 2 of mine did after only a couple of months, but that’s another story).
It disconnects from the firestick like that was the sole intention of the app. I swear, I can hit the home screen on my phone accidentally and immediately switch back to this app and it’s already reconnecting. Which, by the way, can take 30 seconds at a time. Or, much more likely, you have to force quit the app, restart, and wait for it to finally connect.
I should probably give this 2 stars because I can still use my firestick without a remote, but it’s so annoying to use that I can’t justify anything higher than 1 star.
Please just stay connected at all times, I don’t care how much phone battery or bandwidth it takes, just make it convenient.
Horrible app 1/5
This is the worst app. I have to delete It and redownload it probably 5x a week.
Doesn’t work 1/5
It’s always “connecting” or “searching for device”. Sometimes it works fine in sometimes like now it doesn’t work at all.
Never works 1/5
It only works 1 out of 10 times. Especially now since I’ve lost my remote I am using the app. But it doesn’t ever work. When it says it’s connected it isn’t.
Doesn’t ever connect 1/5
Update your app. It’s 2020. Is this a joke?
This app works only when it wants it will connect but not control things...
Used to be a good app 1/5
App worked good until the last update 6 days ago. Now it won’t respond after connecting. Like it’s locked up. Dead. I was so hoping for a remote app to work.
Trash app!!! 1/5
Works only about 30-40 percent of the time.. just spend the extra money and buy the remote..not worth the hassle
Never connects!! Come on Amazon fix this!!
Connection problems 1/5
App won’t stay connected to device.
Basically worthless 1/5
App constantly disconnects from TV. I often have to close the app, restart phone, or redownload the app just to get it to reconnect to the TV. I understand Amazon wants me to drop $40 on a new remote. Why even offer an app that is this worthless?
Could be better 2/5
App would be great if I didn’t have to re add and reconnect every time I use it
ITS TERRIBLE 1/5
By Robloxian queen of roblox
it won’t let me put my email in
Installed on my IPhone 8 Plus from Verizon, installed easy, had to unplug and plug in my fire stick. Other than that. Works as it should. Voice command and free range screen selection. So far no issues. Installed Today
Unable to find Fire stick 1/5
The app is unable to Firestick even when both the phone and the stick are connected to the same WiFi network
Buy a fire stick 1/5
Works intermittently at best.. Spend the 20 and buy a replacement. This not a good app.
Doesn’t work 1/5
Works for maybe ten minutes, then doesn’t work.
Doesn’t work... 1/5
Updated: this is a piece of crap. Don’t download.
It’s a decently designed app, except that after three or four times of going back and forth from using it, it stops responding to anything. Killing the app and reopening it doesn’t even work. I’m only here writing this because I attempted to completely delete the app and then reinstall it...didn’t work either. Gonna try other apps.
Garbage !! If you lose your remote don’t try this ‘ 1/5
I cannot believe Amazon has a crappy app like this ! No excuse with all the advances they have for this to be such a waste of space
I mean I like but..... 1/5
By Firefighter Bill
This app is horrible, the connections are bad and my devices will randomly disappear off the main screen. It needs some TLC because it’s bad.
Firestick remote 1/5
I despise this app! Always reconnecting I have 2 TVs and o can’t switch between the two rooms because the app won’t let me select anything on the device page. Slow and extremely frustrating!
Worst remote ever 1/5
This remote isn’t effective. It works when it wants to and you never know when it’s gonna start working right again.
Amazon Fire Stick Remote App 1/5
This app works maybe 25% of the time. It’s total crap
Connectivity Issues 1/5
By Kenzie the Wolf
My app continually doesn’t connect to the tv. I will open the app, choose the tv and then the app stops working, none of the buttons will work. I have to delete the app, and then re-download it and set up the app again. I have to do this every single time I want to watch tv. It’s ridiculous.
worked fine for the first few weeks then started experiencing connection issues. it’ll say that it’s connected but none of the buttons function, like it’s not actually connected. highly frustrating.
