Both remote & Apple TV are connected to same WiFi network, absolutely will not connect.
There are 3 Apple TV’s in the household, all connected to same WiFi, and only master bedroom appears.
Waste of time.
Horrible APP 1/5
Connected to same WiFi yet keep getting a error
By Sami sanandaj
Nice work app😍
Nearly Useless 2/5
By Lord Snoopy
Got this because even a new, out-of-the-package battery will not make my actual remote work. This is almost as bad. Loses connection if you let the phone lock while it’s on. Takes a loooong time to reconnect, and sometimes it won’t for hours. HOURS.
Excellent APPLE TV REMOTE 5/5
I, like the other recent 5 star review don’t understand all of the poor ratings.
This application does exactly what it says it does and works wonderfully. Both your Apple TV and phone have to be connected to the same WiFi source in order to work but other than that? Love the app.
Are you not embarrassed?! 1/5
Remote only works half the time. Like all other reviews it constantly drops connection to device then won’t pair back up. For your brand image are you not embarrassed to have such a sub par app?? Or just greedy??
Randomly stopped working 2/5
Well, everything was going well with this app for awhile. I had no problems and then for the past two days the only functions that work are play, menu, and that’s it. I deleted and redownloaded it several times and still having issues. I noticed this app hasn’t been updated in a year. Maybe a new update is needed.
It works amazing 5/5
I never do reviews on apps, in fact this is my first one and I’m only doing it because somehow this app has less than 3 stars, it does not deserve that. This app works exactly how the actual Apple TV remote does and in some aspects I like it even more. Absolutely zero complaints!
It can’t find the Apple TV...useless 1/5
We had a Apple TV given to us with the wrong remote, so we downloaded this app. We can’t get the TV to hook up to our WiFi, seeing we can not navigate the menu, making this app impossible to use. COOL 🙃
Make this an Apple Watch app as well 4/5
Great App, would like to use my watch as a remote as well. Make this happen
Me gusto pero hay errores 4/5
La aplicación es muy útil pero hay un error si tu juegas en modo juego y con el y tu mueves el D-pad a la derecha se mueve a la izquierda la única forma de jugar es moviendo el D-pad acia bajo y acia arriba y es muy incomodo por favor les ruego que arreglen eso
Yo this stuff gooooood.
Doesn’t work 1/5
By A JPM client
Used to work, no longer does. I’ve spent 90 minutes today deleting, restoring, etc. Recognizes my tv but will not connect on iPhone or iPad. And, yes, we are on the same WiFi network.
Great app-Volume control needed. 4/5
This remote app saves me when I loose this small remote. It would be much better if it included volume control. Then the app would surpass 5 stars.
A gimmick at Best 1/5
If I paid my taxes as often as this app works, I'd be in federal prison.
I don’t get it 4/5
I don’t know why everyone is so triggered by this app, it connects easily and works as intended. I have a very old Apple TV, but it works perfectly fine for me. The only thing I don’t really love is the scroll pad thing, which took me forever to even realize that was what it was. I get that they’re trying to make it easier, but being used to the simple nanopod type control of my Apple TV remote, it just seems kind of unnecessary.
It’s working perfectly well 5/5
By Michael Feilun Chen
This app is excellent. My little daughter somehow made remote disappeared and I just could not find it in my house but I needed to watch Apple TV for multiple tv shows and movies.
I was a bit skeptical first since I saw so many bad reviews but I gave it a shot and it worked like a charm. It saved me money to buy a new remote. Don’t know why ppl gave negative reviews. This app worked perfectly fine at my end.
Trash app that rarely connects to my Apple TV 1/5
80% of the time I can’t get it to connect to my Apple TV. It’s so frustrating. What a piece of garbage.
Stopped working with second gen tv after update 1/5
Apple employs monkeys and extortionists. Imbeciles.
The concept is there, but the controls are absolutely horrible. I pass over an app I want twice or more before I can actually land on it with the touchpad. It’s frustrating, but it can be useful otherwise. For instance, if you lose track of your physical remote, it’s not a big deal. Or, you’ll never have to worry about not having a remote because you always know exactly where your phone is. Ok, I’ve spent too much time on this. Bye.
Worst remote in the known universe 1/5
By NPR lifer
Absolutely terrible. Hard to believe this is an Apple product. Barely works for two days and then displays a message that the Apple TV gizmo is on a different wifi network. And that’s it. Can’t be revived. Deleting and reinstalling the app does nothing. Pure junk. Don’t waste your time.
All remotes for Apple TV are Terrible! 1/5
Add a fast forward capability to the remote. The trackpad is too sensitive and hard to use.
Only works 10% of the time 1/5
I try with my iPad and my iPhone and it’ll work for a bit, but then the directional touch pad always stops being reactive. You can’t select anything. Then for whatever reason it will work the next day. Very frustrating!!!
Four AppleTv’s one remote 5/5
I use across 4 AppleTVs consistently,with no prob. If I had a complaint, it would be that it doesn’t control the volume. Otherwise, it works great.
What’s everyone’s problem? 5/5
Seriously I’m like the person you do not want reviewing you if either you have a bad app or if you’re ripping off ppl.
This app is neither of the above mentioned. Idk what everyone’s major malfunction is. If you want to do a bad review for an app that’s earned it wholly, head over to miniclip games. They’re a rip off. Believe me I KNOW. This app has actually saved my backside a few times when I had a lost remote. Currently though I am having minor issues with my living room Apple TV, for some reason it will not pair with that remote and to be able to add another remote like this app, you need to be able to get to a certain screen (settings) to be able to pair. Same thing for HboGo and all the other movie channels too. Just use common sense ppl, I cannot imagine why anyone would be anything but grateful for this app. My 5 year old can maneuver round Apple TV with this iPad/iPhone remote. LoL. If you can’t, you probably shouldn’t even have an Apple TV- at all
Just keepin it real.
Complete trash 1/5
How do you screw up something this simple? PUT A GODDAMM VOLUME BUTTON ON IT!!! THE HARDWARE VOLUME DOESNT WORK!!! COMPLETE TRASH APP. Someone better have been fired
Doesn’t work 1/5
Had a problem with it always freezing. Deleted it and reinstalled only to have it not able to find the Apple TV after all the obvious troubleshooting. Trash. Just never lose the apple remote.
JUNK WONT WORK 1/5
Doesn’t recognize my Apple TV. Junk.
Half the time fails to work 1/5
Not reliable enough to work... used to be fine.
Lousy app. Don’t waste your time with this 1/5
This app doesn’t work.
Gets the job done 5/5
Not sure what the deal is with the bad reviews but this is simple enough to use and it gets the job done.
Not working anymore. 1/5
My app stopped working.
Can’t change the audio language nor subtitles 1/5
It doesn’t let me change on Netflix per example and my original Apple TV it’s not working anymore
Works great on my iPhone 5 5/5
I don't know what people are saying it's bad it works great on my iPhone 5 and my Apple TV fourth generation I honestly wasn't expecting it to work but it does and extremely well too no problems here
Remote won’t move from left right down but I’m able to click 5/5
I’m not able to move around I’m only able to click menu I think it’s a bug or something
How can i change language and subtitles on netflix? I’ve been trying to swipe down on the navegation pad but it doesn’t work.
Great tool 4/5
This app does exactly what the Apple TV remote does! It’d be nice if a keyboard option were added. Otherwise it does what it should.
Used to work latest update crashes 1/5
This app works perfect so much better than Apple Remote it comes with 5/5
Dont understand all the negative reviews this remote works excellent. The keyboard feature is key when typing in login info. Trying to use the original remote for that is like trying to text on number pad on the old cell phone. Thanks for the great FREE app!!
3/2020 doesn’t work! doesn’t recognize network 1/5
If I could give it negative stars, I would. This app is useless. Keeps saying it needs to be on same network, which I am. re-installed and nothing.
Works great for me! 5/5
Because of the conflicting reviews, I decided to try it out myself - it’s free so why not!
It’s working great for me. Much better than the remote that came with the Apple TV box.
Works very well 5/5
This works very well. It is very convenient to have it.
By Black Hat Dude
Who made this app? This is not up to the standards Apple usually has.
What used to be a very useful tool is now worthless and deleted.
Why do you think having to log in every time you want to use the thing is needed? Not each time you want to watch a new movie - no - every time you want to press a button...WHAT A JOKE.
This worked fine for sometime- then stopped working partially 1/5
By A GoodNotes Fan
The scroll feature stopped working. Menu button and tap to click feature continues to work. Poorly designed app from Apple.
Don’t download 1/5
It doesn’t work just like the other stuff Apple put out! It had been down hill for a while. Stop putting out new stuff and work out what y’all already have out!!!!!!! 😡😡😡🤬
Works like it should 5/5
I’m always misplacing the remotes to my Apple TV and Apple TV+. My iPad connects with them both using this app. All I have to do is switch the remote controls from the Apple TV to the Apple TV+.
Support Apple Tv app on my Mac 3/5
By Last Week iPhone Newbie
Make this iOS app control my Apple TV app on my MacBook laptop.
Worse than useless 1/5
Impossible to use. In order to connect the remote, you have to enter a code on the device... without the remote being connected... because you need to enter the code.
Underrated app 5/5
Great app way smoother than the tv remote and the keyboard pops up when you search for things that is super helpful
