Works, but not well. 2/5
I have an Insignia Fire TV. The remote for it took the southern road when my toddler dipped it into sink water. Ever since then it’s been quite the uphill battle. I’ve bought remote replacements that don’t pair, I’ve downloaded a bunch of these apps, and for the best alternative I’ve found... I bought a cheap Android phone from the pharmacy down the road and downloaded an app that literally works perfect on it.
Just got a new iPad and thought I’d give this app a try, just because. The app works... Of course for it to work to it’s best ability you must pay the $2.99 a week to use it. There’s a free trial so tried that out. Just like the other IOS apps I’ve tried, there’s a bit of a delay, unlike the android apps which work flawlessly. Why anyone wot.d want to pay $2.99 for an app that doesn’t work perfectly, I’ll never know. Not I said the fly.

This is not helping me at all
Couldn’t connect 1/5
I downloaded this to take over for the remote that came with the tv. That remote is dead, but it would be required for pulling up the settings. So, I still can’t watch tv.
Don’t waste your time 1/5
You can’t click a single thing without a pop up telling you that you need the paid subscription. If you need the paid subscription to do anything make it a paid app. Waste of time.
works but could be faster
$2.99 per week for this remote 1/5
Rip off. Who pays $2.99 per week for a remote? 😡
By he Gante

Horrible ads every 10 seconds 1/5
By Richard Gazinia
Don’t fall for the misleading in-app purchases amount 1/5
The in-app cost states $2.99 until you install and say “Continue” - only then does it say $2.99 per week. It is a remote control app. Um, no. Don’t bother. If they cannot be upfront in their description you can’t expect much from them otherwise.
It’s not working 1/5

I did the things it told me to do and it’s not doing any type of action
Horrible. Do not get. 1/5
By Ava Loren Torres
This app is horrible. Why pay to use a remote? And also, it barely works too. Horrible app, try to avoid it.

It could be my not don’t know... 1/5
It may be could may not be don’t know I couldn’t test it out without signing up for a 2.99 payment per week!
Honestly, I don’t have a problem with paying for a persons time, but come on it’s a freaking remote I could see a one off payment or 1.99 a month but almost $12 which is the same price I pay for Hulu, Netflix and alike just to be able use a keyboard to type things in...
Needless to say they nuts! This business model will never work! I could see if you did ads and 1.99 or 1.99 per month to remove the ads but this is some let me say much the market will give.
Just a bad experience all the way around, and it’s not free because you can’t do anything with it without signing up to plan.
It never linked. 1/5
I tried multiple times in the three days they give you. Dont waste you’re time

It literally ask you to pay to use not a fan
This app is a huge rip off and they keep taking money out of my account every week for a remote that doesn’t work. I tried to call them to cancel the payments and they didn’t even answer or have the correct number. Just a scam honestly
Don’t waste your time or Money 1/5
This app is the worst I’ve ever tried to use. They want you to do this and do that to get it set up yet if you lost your original fire remote your screwed and they don’t care! Like I said SAVE YOUR MONEY
One time I lost my controller and I was so sad and I downloaded this app and I found my controller but just in case u will keep the app in case my I lose my controller again!! I love this so much! ❤️
waste of time and money 1/5

No one time fee - **Read further** 1/5
By Erwin D. Steezcakes
The Remote works as it should. The only downside is there is no one time fee available for as a one time charge as opposed to getting charged $2.99 every week. If you do the math, $2.99 x 4 = $11.96 a month x 12 months = $143.52 a year to use this remote app.
To put into comparison, the replacement Alexa remote is $40 on Amazon. So you can buy 3 brand new Alexa Replacement Remotes right now for the year and you would still save $23.52 vs using this app.
Developers, if you’re reading this, please offer a one time fee as an additional option for the masses.
By v v angry
It was very slow and had false advertisement, it said everything was free and then tried charging me. Very slow and I don’t recommend.
If I had a remote to connect to Firestick I wouldn’t need your remote.
It is bad 1/5
This app is so bad cause every time I click a button it goes to an ad and it dose not even work for my fire stick
What makes you think I'm paying 2.99 weekly to use a remote when there are free one or I can pay 5 for a new one lol
Not making connection 1/5
I can’t use this device with my fire stick
Sorry option 1/5
I can most certainly appreciate firestick reps trying to assist !! But you’re suggestions are not in my best interest to have others/ anyone from untrusted sources to install applications!! Who in their right mi d would do that.. let me suggest something. Send me another firestick that WORKS
It doesn’t work 1/5

Won’t connect if you don’t already have a fire tv remote
Hate the pop up adds
You have to Pay for this 1/5
By Anonymous Irritated User
This app is so useless and pointless. Downloaded this until i got the replacement remote, but you need your remote in order to even work this app. So dumb, save your $3
Need remote 1/5
Need remote to set up fire sick. Download this remote. Tv screen say press play on remote. No play on this remote that I just downloaded. Worthless

Rip off 1/5
By Anonymity 33
You pay extra for a fire TV. With a remote slightly larger than an Apple remote, but black and the slick plastic constantly has it in the couch or chair cushions.UNLIKE Apple’s FREE remote via app, the fire remote app is free, but USAGE of the remote is an ANNUAL cost of $156.00. Assuming the price remains the same per week ($2.99/wk), it would be a sound financial decision to purchase an entire new TV (or maybe 2 TVs) simply to have a couple of spare remotes. Seriously, are people incapable of making prudent decisions any longer? Clearly whomever responsible for establishing the subscription cost is relying on the lack of mathematical education in today’s society!
A monthly charge to use a remote not worth $2 1/5
They should be ashamed to charge a monthing fee
DO NOT DOWNLOAD 1/5
The app never worked, ever. I immediately deleted the app, it’s never been used, yet I was charged repeatedly. Horrible.
