Awful compared to my Chromecast 1/5
Have had the fire stick for over a year. Have never been able to get it to work . Buy Chromecast..
Awful. Just awful. 1/5
I generally don’t review things but I cannot contain it any longer. This is a dreadful app. It works about 8% of the time. Constantly need to reconnect and then it just flat out won’t connect. Just awful. I wish I could give it 0 stars.

The App doesn’t work. I misplaced the actual Firestick remote so figured the App would allow me to still use my device, but it’s constantly ‘reconnecting’. I tried shutting down my phone, unplugging the fire tv, standing right by the fire tv. Nothing works. Why has Amazon put out such a trash App???
Upsetting !!! 1/5
I cannot connect with my phone even when I login
The first thing you should do is prioritize the ability for it to maintain a connection with the fire stick tv remote.
Need Watch app 4/5
Would be amazing if it could work from iPhone or watch, also button format like the remote without the swipe feature. Definitely prefer it over original remote though.
Pure garbage 1/5
Never reconnects to fire stick
It keeps losing the connection 1/5
This app was doing fine until about a week ago. It goes off an on. It will work sometimes but then after the app is idle it says it can’t connect to the fire stick. This app needs to me be fine tuned.
What’s wrong this app is good 5/5

Why are you saying this app don’t work well my app works and it’s really good I use my app for fire tv stick you tube
It works for a little while then it just stops connecting. The remote stopped working ages ago and this app is crap. I’m not paying 27 bucks for a replacement remote so I guess I’m looking into different companies entirely.
I hate this app 1/5
Have you ever had a sick 2 year old screaming to watch his favorite show (the only thing that will make him feel better while he’s miserably sick) and you can’t turn it on because the app specifically made to connect to your fire stick WONT CONNECT!? I have. I hate it. Same 2 year old spilt water on the original remote so I must rely on this app, which works 5% of the time. I can get it to work more often if I restart the fire stick every time I re-open the app. 🤦♀️ And of course buying a replacement remote is almost as expensive as buying the whole firestick kit.
Won’t stay connected 1/5

Can’t find fire stick. When it does the remote doesn’t stay connected or won’t connect. Fix this !!
Not satisfied 1/5
By over it already 2019
It doesn’t even load. It worked really well at first now it doesn’t work at all
Great app 5/5
Great app served its purpose yea it does have to reconnect from time to time but thats minor for me anyway long as it helps me navigate the menus
don’t get this if you don’t have a remote also in hand 3/5
By Jacob please notice this one💙
this app works well most of the time but every once in a while it just does not connect and i have to find me remote
Great app! 5/5
This app is so helpful when I can’t find my remote 🥴🤤🤗
Works like a charm 5/5
Very simple to use and super convenient, dunno why there’s so many bad reviews.
Made me switch to Roku 1/5
This app is so horrid, I completely gave up on the Firestick and bought a Roku. Just like everyone else, my actual remote stopped working, so I downloaded the app, but the app never connects, so the Firestick was useless. Amazon, you make waaaaaaay too much money to have such a garbage app.
Worked for me 4/5
Slow connection but hey, I didn’t have to get up from the couch to get my actual remote, so technically it worked.
Could be better 3/5
It can be time consuming I constantly get the reconnecting popup I have to close and reopen the app to reconnect sometimes it still takes some time. It would also be helpful if I could rearrange all the apps in the app tab page in the Firetv app. I have 76 apps both downloaded on the device and in cloud to available to redownload. And it's time consuming to find the specific app I am looking for. I only use a few. Maybe alphabetize the apps in the page or have my most frequently used apps or last used app on top. For fast switching.
It’s always reconnecting.... But never connects. Once it disconnects from your device which it does at least 10-15 times while in use. You’re unable to log in again. Even manually. So you have to delete and reinstall the app. The R,S,O,J,C, and ,X keys do not work on the keyboard.
Connection issues 2/5
Constantly struggling with connection problems and the app shutting down and not working.
PLEASE FIX 1/5
By Vanna Fckn G
Horrible app never works correctly when is something going to be done about the app not working this is poor customer service
It’s great if you don’t close out the app, ever. You’ll get stuck on “reconnecting” for hours even if you are connected to your WiFi. The real remote control died on me & this one isn’t any better. I’ve been watching a show I can’t change for the last 4 hours !!! Fix this issue then the rating can go from 1 star to 5!!!!
Never stays connected 1/5
Connects to my fire tv after about 3 or 4 times of closing in and out of the app.
Recent update 3/5
After the recent update my iPhone can not locate the fire stick
I appreciate that this app exists, because my actual Firestick remote stopped working. However, I’m incredibly disappointed that this app frequently has issues with connecting. It’s incredibly frustrating. Do better.
Not working 1/5
By cilla j
Need help the app is not working for me
Doesn’t work most of the time. 1/5
This is my second review. First one I gave this app 3 stars. I give it 1 now because more often than not it doesn’t work! It takes days, days for it to work again. I’ve tried everything the app recommends to get it to work too.
This never works 1/5
I stg I’ve downloaded and uninstalled this app so many times, firestick remotes are VERY easy to misplace so this would be freakin phenomenal if it worked but 9/10 it does not work. It makes me so angry you have no idea lol SO ANGRY
Horrible - always buggy 1/5
Disconnects constantly - doesn’t allow you to reconnect.
Rarely works 2/5
It’s a miracle if this thing works on the first try. Sometimes it takes a half hour to an hour to actually connect. Wish my real remote didn’t die, this app is a waste of time.
Sh*t app that rarely functions 1/5
Lost my fire stick remote and now struggle to use my Prime streaming. Phone remote barely functions; has horrible delay, fast forward/rewind impossible, and connectivity to stick pretty miserable despite strong router. Big disappointment.
Worked for two days now it wont connect
Horrible compatibility 1/5
Searches for fire tv device that is 2 feet away and doesn’t connect.
Firestick remote control 1/5
I'm having problems with this app I uninstall it thinking it'll help but it don't
Fix your keyboard 2/5
Can’t type letter S or R on keyboard in app why?
If I could give this app zero stars I would. It is constantly crashing. I always have to reconnect it even as I’m using it. I can’t believe they haven’t fixed this issue yet with as many complaints as it gets.
Let’s just say we love chicken 4/5
So almost all the it works bit like yk it doesn’t wanna connect I’m rich 😍😍😍😍😐😍😍😍😍😍😍😐😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😂😍👿😐👑🤷🏽♀️✨🤷🏽♀️😩😎💜💋😶🤷🏽♀️🌮🍗💦✨😭😅
Has been fine for weeks. Glad to have an extra remote.
Horrible and fustrating 1/5
Tried this app multiple times on several TVs and it doesn’t work. Do not download this app
Trash . Always disconnects me and I can’t connect back to fire stick 1/5
By thisss app suxx
Can’t connect to fire stick
App won’t work 1/5
The app worked fine for the first few days, but eventually I couldn’t get it to connect to my fire stick at all. This is a problem because the actual remote runs through the batteries in about a week or two. I managed to go through an entire pack of batteries over the course of about 2 months since having the device. I thought that the app would be an easy fix but it has not been for me. I’ve been satisfied with Amazon as whole in the past but I’d really like to see this issue fixed. Especially since the fire stick seems to be one of the most popular and useful products that you guys sell.
Not working 3/5
UPDATE: I downloaded the app again. Now it has been working for two days. Gave it a 3 Star. Up from 2. Working on giving it a 5. Will update next week.
I download and worked perfectly for one day. Then it stopped connecting to the one remote, out of three. I removed it and downloaded it again and the one remote that I need isn't showing up. Therefore I can no Looney use this app. It worked for one day. Smh. Please fixed it because neither of my three actual remotes, that came with the Fire sticks. are working which is why I used this one.
Does not connect 1/5
Does not connect. Constantly says reconnecting and never does. Loses the fire stick information when trying to reconnect. I think this would be better if it had the actual directional remote instead of the swipe pad. It takes a lot of work to use this app.
Needs improvements 2/5
App is not optimized to be opened and closed as a remote is needed. I got the app when I dropped my fire stick remote in a cup of juice thinking it would be a substitute for the remote. But every time you open the app it says reconnecting which sometimes takes a whole minute, which in my opinion is way too long.
Really, Amazon?? 1/5
I guess I’m not alone here. The app disconnects within moments of turning it on, requiring me to sign out, turn off the app, then turn it back on again and sign in, then quickly navigate to where I need to go before it shuts back down again.
Seriously, Amazon? Is this the best you can do? Time to pull the interns off the app and get someone to push out some real fixes immediately. You should be embarrassed for the brand.

The app works perfectly for my fire stick
Hardly ever connects to the Fire TV. Every time you leave the app to do something else it disconnects and you have to try to connect all over again.
