It’s a good backup app, but it crashes too often for me.
Doesn’t Connect to TV 1/5
Stopped working and now I can’t connect to my Fire TV.
It won’t connect anymore 1/5
This app drives me crazy! 2/5
By Mrs. John Whelan
It works great, one problem. There’s a 4 second lag in anything you do on this app, trying to get something to work on the tv. Super annoying, as you don’t think it took your gesture, then all of a sudden you try again and it goes crazy as it’s still trying to input your first gesture! Please fix! Otherwise app is great, especially, for my husband who ALWAYS, misplaces the remotes!
Issues that happen constantly 1/5
When I try to use my phone to control my tv it never loads on to the remote. I have tried to deleting the app, restarting my phone, and signing in and out. I wait for ever hoping for it to load and just to get a failed to connect try again screen. So unless this is fixed I’m not giving anything above a 1 star rating
Fix it please 2/5
Some days it wants to link to my tv others days it don’t please fix this
This app never connects to the TV. This amazon tv is the worst purchase I have made in my life
Buggy glitchy, doesn’t work 1/5
Takes forever to connect, constantly times out, very frustrating
The remote doesn’t connects most of the time. 2/5
I’ve had to re-download this app several times because it doesn’t work. My WiFi connection isn’t the issue. This app definitely needs some fixing. Until then, I’ve delete this one and I’m trying out other apps.
It hardly stays connected and it is a pain to get it reconnected so that you can watch something.
Ehhhhh, alright 3/5
By Ash M 0715
Remote hasn’t been working now for 2 days. It won’t load. Any fixes for this??
works like 20% of the time
It’s constantly in reconnect mode. I’ve been trying to get it to work for over 30 mins tonight. Some days it works better than others but will still hit snags daily. This app was designed to frustrate us so much that we’ll shell out the money for a new fire stick.
Absolute Trash 1/5
By Donnie Walnuts
Save yourself time and just order a new remote. This app will only piss you off.
Frequently not loading 1/5
The app remote frequently does not load after restarting multiple times.
Connects for about 5 Seconds 1/5
By Countess Bassy
I was excited because I found this app after my remote stopped working. It connected and worked for about 5 seconds then it quit. It keeps trying to connect after that and DOES NOT WORK at all. Super disappointed. I had to order a new remote and have to wait for it to arrive before I can use my FireTV. Come on Bezos, spend some money on fixing this awful App. It doesn’t reflect well on Amazon.
The app is horrible it only work half of the time & when it do work it’s a struggle! Just buy batteries trust me you will thank me later.
Great idea but it needs tweaking. 1/5
I lost my fire stick remote but when I found this app I was excited. The app allowed me to control my fire stick without looking for the remote every five minutes. I’ve been using the app about 6 months now. The idea is pretty clutch but the app does not work well. Multiple times throughout usage it will refuse to connect to the stick. Sometimes restarting the app or fire stick will help. Which can my really annoying when you’re already comfortable. I have noticed the app has been refusing to connect more lately and the current update did not help at all.
Great when it works. 1/5
Spoiler alert. It never works.
Get it together, will you? Android app is so much better 2/5
This app constantly fails to stream DVR. I’m at home on the same Wi-Fi that the Amazon Recast is. A few feet away.
It takes this app 10+ seconds to start playing a video. After a while, it fails to stream. Only rebooting the Recast seems to help.
No (!) such issues with the Android app. It starts playing videos in a second or two. Scrolling through the video is almost instantaneous. The Android app works when the iOS app fails to start streaming. Come on!
There is a delay 2/5
Can you please fix this app. There is a delay when trying to navigate. I’m not sure what happened but it used to work perfectly.
By AMY & CARLA
This app continuously fails to connect. A great app in theory but very disappointing.
Fixed the connection issues 5/5
App is working again. I had to reset the fire stick and now it is working again!!! Awesome app!
This app continues to connect to my phone, after uninstalling. Fire Stick is shocking unsecured and I wish I had never let my husband convince me to use the one we received as a gift.
crash and burn 1/5
app is garbage. crashes every 3 minutes. multiple restarts. works with significant lag at absolute best.
Doesn’t connect 2/5
This app seems to never connect to my tv I have to reset my phone a lot of the time just to get it to connect to my tv. It comes in handy when I lose my remote but it gets frustrating waiting for it to connect
Clunky freezes crashes constantly. 1/5
Takes forever to connect, crashes, freezes. Clearly poorly made.
Downhill since the last update 1/5
I’ve had this app for quite a while and ever since the last update it’s been running really slow and crashing and not connecting to my fire stick. Never had any problems before. Downloaded a different app and it works a lot better so I know it’s not my fire stick or my phone
iOS poor? 2/5
By E Casual E
Writing this after noting my iPad said Cast disconnected — but while also watching content fine on my Android device. iOS also seems to lag/lockup. No update on iOS to fix.
Weird remote 2/5
By Aninwa buachie
You know it would be reasonable to put a right, left, up, and down arrows button right? Plus you can also put a volume button on it?????
Don’t waste your time 1/5
By lee angel 1918
App is a great idea but quality is trash! Was recommended by an amazon representative after remote stop working. Keep saying reconnecting after only a couple hours of using all.
Can’t use the app 1/5
App not pairing to my fire stick
Stopped working 1/5
Remote worked well for the Past months but about 12 hours ago disconnected from TV and won’t reconnect. Gets frozen on “connecting” screen
Update: worked again for a couple of days and is now out again. Back to same problem. App is so glitchy. I expect better from amazon
Blows my mind that a company as powerful as amazon could make something so horrible. Was glitchy before but would usually connect eventually. Latest update has rendered it completely useless. Won’t connect at all. Clearly Amazon put their C team on this project...development team deserves to be fired. What a joke.
Corrections needed 3/5
Having the app is great as a backup for when you remote is missing or not working but after exiting the screen the app is reconnecting and may not connect again.
Working again! 5/5
Was out for a while but working fine again. Other remote apps horrible glad I didn't have to go with them.
It’s okay 3/5
It’s perfect for the most part but when you either exit the app or turn off your phone it disconnects!
Would be nice if it worked 2/5
The app has a great setup, but does not connect 70% of the time.
copy & paste 3/5
please fix the copy and paste for they keyboard 🙏
What the hell. 2/5
I have to constantly delete and re-download. When I try to select the fire stick bar in the app it doesn’t register I’m touching it. I delete the app and re download and it works till tomorrow when I go to use it again.
It won’t even connect to the firestick at all this is a trashy app
At least 1-2 times a day this app malfunctions!
Please fix and make reliable!!
Worked ok until most recent update 1/5
By a rose is a rose is a rose
After this past update, the app won’t connect to my tv. It just says ”connecting” and remains frozen. It’s useless now. The remote that came with my Fire TV broke, and replacements are difficult to find. Now I can’t use my TV at all. Very upset!
Horrible app 1/5
I can’t believe Amazon would put this product out. It’s horrible. It NEVER connects. I basically can’t use my fire stick at this point because my remote broke and this app is a sad, pathetic attempt at a substitute. This app isn’t even mediocre, it’s the worst.
Love it 5/5
My original fire stick just ran out of battery not to long ago , I’ve been using this app since & haven’t had any problems. Such a life saver.
Crashes way to much
App freezes a lot! 1/5
This app is always freezing ever since I got the iPhone XR. I keep having to click the connect button until it finally connects. It’s really getting annoying.
Works Great If It Connects To The Firestick 3/5
By Killa Lofton
App Was Working Fine.. Then Out Of Nowhere It Just Wouldn’t Let Me Connect To My Firestick Anymore..
Never stays connected 1/5
I’ve found that I can get this app to work initially (though sometimes not even) but once it disconnects (usually 5-10 minutes into a show) it will never reconnect. Close the app. Uninstall and reinstall. Nothing works. This is borderline useless app and should be removed and reworked before being available for download again.
