Apple TV Remote app reviews

  • This is annoying 1/5

    By cnicolew20
    I’ve had an Apple TV for 3 years & have the used the remote app on my phone on and off over the years. I’ve never had a problem up until 2 days ago. I couldn’t find my physical remote so I went to the app & it says that my Apple TV is OFFLINE! I was in the middle of watching Netflix, just wanting to select that I was still watching. My phone & TV both have the latest updates and as far as I can tell, the app is updated as well. I was able to mirror my phone to the tv but not able to use the remote app! How does that make sense? You have to be connected to the same network to do both. Guess what? I was and I still am. This is ridiculous. I was shocked reading the reviews for this app because I thought maybe I was crazy and missing something at first but it turns out that tons of others are having the same issue.
  • You need a remote to use the remote app 1/5

    By YoshiYosh0213
    If you’re looking to replace your remote, this isn’t the fix. It’s supplemental if you’ve already got a remote.
  • Doesn’t work anymore 1/5

    By Joe 1953
    Had to unpair the phone from the Apple TV because it wouldn’t work. And now it doesn’t even pair. If I could show a picture of what it shows I would because it is annoying. Apple should be ashamed.
  • Needs a volume button 4/5

    By slickwilly28
    It does everything other than everything. You know what TV i have based on what i connect to. So make it everything. It doesn’t include a volume button so include a volume button. Not that hard.

    By Filipe R. Kerr
    Why have an app that doesn’t work? Useless app...
  • Stopped working 1/5

    By Needanewappletvapp
    It worked just fine for a few months and it stopped working out of no where. I’m definitely on the same network and both are up to date. It can’t pick up signal from my Apple TV and I don’t understand why?
  • Doesn’t stay paired 2/5

    By no auto pay
    Why doesn’t the app stay paired with my Apple TV when the app is minimized? Every time my phone closes or I go outside the remote app I have to select add an Apple TV OR I have to minimize and reopen it a second time. I never had this problem before, started recently with one of the updates.
  • Not working 1/5

    By JesusMejorado
    I love using this app. Up until a couple of days ago, it was working fine. No problems with it, except i would have to connect to the Apple TV each time I need to do something with it for a fee months. Now it’s not working at all. Just says there’s no network and it stays on that screen. It’s not a network problem, or iPhone or Apple TV since I can mirror. Mirroring works fine and everything else is fine with devices and network. The app is trash now. It needs to be fixed.
  • Fix the bugs!! 2/5

    By J9hugme
    Great concept, terrible execution. Every time I use another app and return to the remote, it asks me to add an Apple TV. I have to exit out of the app/quit the app and open it again in order for me to be able to use the remote. It is seriously the most annoying thing ever.
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By West Palm Beach FL
    Could not get it to work.
  • App is terrible 1/5

    By Jrap015
    App doesn’t work at all. I can mirror all day long yet this app can’t seem to find the tv. Don’t waste your time with this garbage
  • 40 Billion & can’t make a simple app 1/5

    By Exec100
    Half... donkey effort
  • 👍 5/5

    By lhayz25
    Works fine like a normal remote
  • Very unreliable. 2/5

    By popenhagen04
    Extremely frustrating to use. Not dependable at all. Works maybe 10% of the time, with no changes to the WiFi or settings.
  • Ridiculous 1/5

    By Csharppoet
    That a company that prides itself on innovation can create such garbage. Works 20% of the time. Apple wants to be a leader in smart home integration with their products... ridiculous.
  • No volume or mute 1/5

    By C plus C
    The Apple TV remote app is WORTHLESS without a volume control and a mute button!
  • With no real Bluetooth connectivity don’t leave your real remote at home!!! 1/5

    By Dude named Ben
    Going on holiday and took my spare Apple TV with me so I could enjoy my own entertainment instead of the lousy hotel feed. Had to save weight as airlines are becoming very strict these days and intended to use my phone as the remote. Sadly this app does NOT connect via Bluetooth so you cannot set up your Apple TV to the hotel WiFi, severely limiting its usage. Also most hotels I stay in Asia limit you to only 3 devices, so the Apple TV, your phone, iPad and computer ours you over the limit... and if your partner has a few devices of their own... This app needs to work over Bluetooth
  • Works great 1/5

    By stphns45
    only on older Apple Tv. Newer models very iffy. 😐
  • Is this app managed by a team of professionals??? 1/5

    By Phone Bag
    This app is a complete joke. Don’t download it. It unpairs from the Apple TV almost every time you want to use it and trying to get it paired again is more aggravating than it’s worth. I give up. There is NO POSSIBLE WAY this app is given the attention necessary to make it a meaningful, competitive tool to use with Apple TV. I would be really nice to have an app for my phone that synchronized my computer, TV, etc. with the device we all use most often- our phones. Isn’t that what Apple Home was supposed to do? Please make this work like it was supposed to and try to avoid buying the “next gen” Apple TV as the only solution to making this work. I have been an Apple TV loyalist for YEARS. Don’t do me like this.
  • Works fine, but no volume control 3/5

    By Tinleyd
    I like this app a lot. The only complaint I have is that it can’t control volume so you have to have the remote anyway. If it could control volume it would really be a great app.
  • Great, when it works 2/5

    By Case0ne
    Consistently looses connection with Apple TV. Have to resync on a daily basis. When I connects, works great. Love it... just fix it APPLE!
  • Turn on and off 1/5

    By skniep
    I have to turn the app on and off every single time I want to use it. So obnoxious. C’mon apple
  • Useless App with Useless Apple TV 1/5

    By ZERO269
    This App never works properly. I can’t scrub through anything that I’m watching. It’s hit or miss when it works. Been having issues since the beginning. Sometimes I have the same issues with the included remote for the Apple TV 4K. The Apple TV seems like it’s the issue considering it’s always freezing, or stuck on a black or gray screen. I have to cycle power to get it working again. I’m thinking Chromecast or Roku will be a better investment.
  • Useless App 1/5

    By Levi Dude
    This app is completely useless. I’ve got my phone connected and I’m easily able to do the screen mirroring and can clearly see the device is added, but the app does nothing. It doesn’t work what so ever, and I’ve tried everything suggested online repeatedly. Apple needs to remake this app cuz it’s worthless. The remote that comes with Apple TV is the most frustrating device I’ve ever use so it’s rather upsetting that there’s no useful remote option what so ever for Apple TV.
  • Bad Apl 1/5

    By jfknashville
    This App works once in a while, very frustrating!
  • Great 5/5

    By Vf101
    I don’t know why people complain, I think it’s great. It always works. If anything, it unpairs after a while, but it just takes a second to click back on. It’s wonderfully when I can’t find my actual remote. And that happens all of the time!
  • Works 5/5

    By brooklynmaliah7
    So far it works perfectly. If that changes so will the review. Wish it would control the volume.
  • Doesn’t work a lot of the time 1/5

    By dhevdhshsj
    Every time I use the app, I have to open it twice. The first time freezes 100% of the time then as soon as I close it and open it again, it’s always a 50/50 chance it will either work fine or say “not seeing what your looking for? Blah blah blah” and then won’t work for another couple days. Most of the time it ends up being way easier to just use the tiny (hopefully not lost 😉) remote the Apple TV came with.
  • Poor 2/5

    By Caleb629
    Works sometimes but not often. Have to restart the Apple TV
  • Junk 1/5

    By Cardinaj2
    Never works and good luck trying to pair it it up after it randomly drops its connection to your Apple TV.
  • Help 1/5

    By soggydoggo
    So I lost my Apple TV remote and I downloaded this app so I could use it and stop gathering dust. But when I opened the app, it asked me to enter a code to the Apple TV but I couldny ( cause I didnt have a remote ). Did anyone else experience something like this? And how did you fix it?
  • Extends the lifetime of the physical remote 4/5

    By Ramya logesh
    Please include Volume controls, for complete remote replacement.
  • Apple TV remote app is trash 1/5

    By Monkey8728
    Someone needs to read these complaints and make the remote work!! And the app! I can’t even use my Apple TV because the remote glitches and doesn’t do what I’m making it do, and then My phone doesn’t want to pair the app to the device. How is this even happening
  • Terrible 1/5

    By 8jg44
    Why can’t a company like Apple but out a functional app? Thanks for skipping a power button. That’s extra helpful. Every other device on my WiFi works fine except the Apple TV app.
  • Not very good 1/5

    By badapple566
    Really sad that programmers today really are not good. The remote works sometimes.
  • Broken 1/5

    By ghbfdyj
    The Apple remote only works for a short period of time after that it defecate itself.
  • One annoying problem I've found: 2/5

    By Adagio Mesto
    Very often when you hit the instant replay back 15 seconds button it fast forwards to the end of the video instead! Extremely annoying.
  • Useless 1/5

    By pooltechjohn
    It worked for a few times and then never worked again.
  • NEVER WORKS!! 1/5

    By Philter1975
    iphone 8 and Gen 3 Apple, using the app not control center. Has never linked up, does not find each other on shared Wi-Fi network. The first two proprietary apple products to NOT WORK! Apple please advise! very frustrating!
  • Why the low rating?? 5/5

    By Gunman7891
    So yes, I used to have connection issues as well but I read a forum on the apple website suggesting to change the name of your Apple TV & so I did & since then it’s been working. After a while of working it suddenly stopped & I began to have the same issues so I gave up on the app. About two months ago, I changed internet providers & as it turns out my OLD internet would disconnect for a second which is the cause to the “disconnection” / lag from the app to the Apple TV. I had Spectrum Internet so yea , you guys can see the issue. My suggestion is to make sure your internet is running well & does NOT disconnect not even for a second because I believe that once you attempt to use the remote you’ll just have to reset it all over again. I am typing all this because I’ve been running w/ this app for two months w/ no lags or disconnects so yes, I am satisfied. Of course apple could add & make the app better since it’s a software but this definitely works as a replacement from the physical remote Hope this was helpful to you all 🙏
  • Scam to encourage purchase of new remote 1/5

    By 🍎🔥💵
    The app rarely ever works as it only allows me to turn the device on and off. I am convinced Apple has intentionally created a poor app in order to encourage the sale of more physical TV Remotes. This is the same company that does not include fast chargers and lighting-to-headphone dongles with new iPhones.
  • Works whenever it feels like 1/5

    By Yentaze
    Highly unreliable. Works sometimes and for the most part it’s never connecting to the WiFi. Very frustrating actually. You’d think that by now Apple would’ve fixed the remote control app for their tv. I moved from my apartment to a house and somewhere between the move, I misplaced my Apple TV remote control. Now I can’t watch my tv when I want to cause of the flimsy app. SMH
  • C’mon Apple... 1/5

    By DJ SCiZ
    Simple app that never works consistently. The best feature, and only reason to use this besides to avoid getting up to find the remote, was the keyboard for search and password entry. Now that doesn’t work either. Junk
  • No Instructions 3/5

    By Matthew-sensei
    A quick demo or some arrows would be nice.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Bossman3518374528
    I lost my remote and the app works perfectly great app.
  • Works as intended (?) 4/5

    By RaefeV
    Seems to work perfect as intended but does not work as a game controller.
  • Needs improvements 1/5

    By nategear1
    Does not stay connected. Frequently does not auto connect. Need to close on the app switcher and reboot several times. Sometimes does not recognize Apple TV. Is frequently “searching” and can not connect.
  • Fhhbjzjsjsjx 1/5

    By bish🤹🏻‍♂️
    Boi if u don’t
  • Barely functional 2/5

    By Home shopper 79
    Why is it every time I open my phone to use the remote it forgets my Apple TV connection? Then I have to close the app and relaunch it every time. Very annoying.
