This update is an embarrassment 1/5
Really expect at the very least baseline functionality from a “tech company”. Try to move the cursor to the right? It shoots over the screen when you only wanted to move one space. Making a selection? After you hit “select” Be sure to wait at least 10 seconds for the app to communicate with your WiFi then the fire stick.
I lose my remote all the time 5/5
By unuicurn cute girl
I lose my remote every day this app is the best thing ever my dad got me the app because we got new floors I found my remote now but I still on my IPAD
Stop with the updates 1/5
Fix the app and stop doing these unnecessary updates that don’t do anything but make the thing even more slow and laggy. The cheap remote y’all sold me broke so I rely on this app to use my fire stick.
Works about half the time. 1/5
This app makes me regret buying a Fire TV.
Popping back in, 6/29/19, to mention that this app still can’t hold up as an adequate remote.
7/18/19 still hate this remote. I’ve been trying to connect to my TV for an hour. Get it together, Amazon.
Doesn’t work anymore but also not as functional as it could have been when it did work. 1/5
Was working good enough for a month or two but it disconnected if you didn’t leave the app open an on and would have a hard time reconnecting often, which made it hard to pause movies or shows in a reasonable amount of time. Eventually the app is just 100% frozen now, no resetting or checking for updates or alternate way of trying to open it makes it work anymore. Broken app.
Please include the time of the recordings, not only the day of it 3/5
Hello! I’m the recordings section, please include a time stamp of the recorded show, not only the day of the recording. That help us a lot as users to organize our content.
Thank you in advance
By I got ths on my iiiiiiiiipod
It’s slow, lags a lot, takes for ever to connect to the fire tv stick, and when it does it only last at most 5 min, this entire app and product is a all round P.O.S
The best 5/5
I LOVE THIS I LOST MY REMOTE AND I WAS UPSET BUT THANK GOD FOR THIS ❤️ thanks
The back button 2/5
I can't believe the back button has been unusable for at least a year now. It makes the app nearly pointless,
Great app! 5/5
By Lacienega Q.
So I been using this app since Christmas 2018 for my Fire TV, right? And whenever I’m on the app not all the time, my tv is on but it’s not popping up on the screen and I have to find my remote which takes a really long time ! It’s really weird , but I love this app! Really good app ☺️
Constantly disconnecting 1/5
Always disconnects when it’s least convenient and most of the time it can’t even find the fire stick again which leaves you unable to pause or do ANYTHING if you don’t have the remote.
Won’t connect to my FireStick without me having to reboot my FireStick half of the time
Doesn’t work 1/5
When I lost my fire remote, I got this app to replace it. It worked great for awhile! For the past few months, it’s stopped connecting to my fire stick. I’ll have to logout and then log back in to my amazon account and hope it connects. Very frustrating. It will be working one second and stop working the next.
No longer connecting to fire tv 1/5
Was working until 2 days ago. Sometimes it’s glitchy but now it’s just not working.
Make it better 2/5
First I love that it works with Recast. However, the guide shows all channels instead of my favorites. Second, I am unable to set up a recording of a show more then an hour from the current time. Very frustrating when away from home and can’t record something without setting a reminder an hour before 😡
It’s free! 2/5
Having a lot of connection issues.
Used to work 2/5
I don’t know what they did in the last update but now the app takes several reconnects and often I have to just unplug Abdul reconnect the fire stick to the TV. But that fix is temporary and I have problems connecting again a few minutes later. 2 stars because I lost my remote otherwise it would be 1.
Black screen 1/5
Today it just decided to give me a black screen until i rebooted my phone & deleted it- I’m just gonna buy a second remote, this is stupid.
Just buy a remote 2/5
I’ve been suffering with this app since my last remote broke for about a year. This app can never maintain a connection always glitches out always crashes I finally bought a new fire stick because you might as well as much as the remote cost you and I don’t know what the hell was wrong with me waiting so long this app made me want to break my phone so many times but it wasn’t my phones fault LOL if you don’t have to don’t use this app it’ll drive you crazy
Works half the time and the other half it doesnt work 🤷🏼♀️ lame
Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t... awful!!!
Control fire stick without looking for a missing remote 4/5
By Anonymous veriewer
Sometimes it doesn't connect though. Also takes a few seconds after switching from another app.
I wish I could give it no stars. It picks and chooses when to work. Like one day it will, and then suddenly it can’t connect. It would be a great app if only it worked. It would be perfect. But no it’s garbage. You delete it, then download it again and it still won’t work. Dumpster fire
Do not get! 1/5
I’ve been having problems with this for the whole time I got it (2 years.) but this is the final straw. I can’t even get on my tv! Plus it deleted my fire stick off the app itself. I tried resetting it but it won’t work. Please fix your app.
What’s going on these last two days? I can’t connect to my tv
App need to be fixed 1/5
The app has been closing and showing there is no device connected
Worst connecting remote ever 1/5
Never connects takes forever to load. Crappy app
My kids constantly lose my remote, so it’s nice having a backup I can always find. However It never wants to connect! So I reconnect and reconnect. If I finally get connected, it’ll disconnect again and I’m starting all over. I spend more time messing w it than I do watching a movie.
Randomly stops working 2/5
By Banana TV
Guess it does the job to be free or whatever. But it randomly stops working, won’t pair, etc. recommend only because it’s free.
Fix your app 2/5
This app freezes and refuses to connect to my firestick occasionally, get on it amazon or ima get a roku.
Great idea, poor excecution 1/5
By Handsome Jim5
I love the idea of this app since my remote broke. However it only connects to the fire stick one of twenty times. Hopefully an update will fix the problem.
Works when it wants to.
The app will work whenever IT wants 2/5
So the only problem i have with this app is even with WiFi connected it will barely load up everything. It’ll claim it doesn’t have internet to connect when the WiFi is fully connected. Also talk about bug fixes you guys neee to work on this man!!!!
DONT’T DOWNLOAD! 1/5
The app never work. I redownloaded it 10 times. I rebooted my phone 5 time and the app still doesn’t work. It only worked 3 out of the 10 I used it. Fix the app or just get rid of it.
Update Needed 1/5
I’ve had this app for over a year. Only within the last few weeks has there been issues with connecting. I have deleted the app, restarted the app, and even unplugged the fire stick in hopes it would work. Please make the necessary changes.
Needs to be updated 1/5
Reconnecting. Loosing signal to the fire stick by closing the phone. Was good at first but not worth struggling with.
Won’t connect 2/5
Hasn’t connected to my fire stick in days, tried everything. Now I can’t use prime or Hulu
It’s retarded and stupid 1/5
I find it funny that this dumb app works for everyone but me my fire stick remote never pops up and every time they give me a OTP and I type the password in they say it’s incorrect I really hate this app the only reason why I use it is cus I don’t a actual remote . This is dumb and I’m fed up with this dumb app when it works like this 😤
It’s pretty bad. Used to work ok, but then started needing me to sign in and wouldn’t even connect. Makes me want to get rid of the fire tv altogether
Bought Recast and no assess to the guide 2/5
So no access to guide on here is like a punch to the face after spending 229.00 for the recast.. need a guide hell a dedicated app for it. Would love it if I could connect this to streaming stuff as well.
Awesome when works, infuriating when doesn’t 1/5
This app is so frustrating. When it connects, it’s a godsend. I lost track of my remote a while back and use this exclusively to use my fire stick. Mostly this app makes it possible, but every once in a while it will not connect, no matter what, for days on end. Really frustrating. Very unreliable app overall.
Handy, but not perfect 3/5
When you go away from the app or lock your phone, it disconnects. So every time you want to use it you have to wait for it to reconnect. Would be nice if it stayed connected. Better yet if it was accessible from the lock screen. Its nice to have it since I lost the remote, but annoying waiting up to a minute to pause or rewind something.
Not connecting 1/5
By Hate new update!!
Usually freezes up but know it want connect using the iOS app.
Could be useful but is just frustrating 2/5
My Fire TV Remote broke a few months ago, and so have been using (or trying to use) this app ever since. Unfortunately there is a huge flaw in the main purpose of this app: that it will refuse to connect with the Fire TV Stick period about 50% of the time. I’ll be able to see my device on the list, the Fire TV Stick could already be on and running, everything is on the same wi-fi, etc. etc., but when I tap the device it just says “Cannot Connect”. Extremely annoying and frustrating.
Won’t connect anymore 1/5
I use this app primarily to type in names of shows/movies I want to watch because it’s easier to use the qwerty keyboard and to navigate to other apps faster. However this app does not connect to my firestick at all anymore and is literally a waste of space.
By East Falls 4577
Hard to reconnect to often
Bad app 1/5
The app never wants to connect to my fire stick . It’s a bad app don’t get it !
Pretty much garbage 1/5
My daughter dumped our regular remote in the dog water so we have had to use this app, and it’s terrible. It constantly disconnects when scrolling through the menus or apps. I guess we’ll have to go buy a new fire stick because we have no other option
Stopped working 1/5
It's great when it works, but it hasn't worked in a few months now
