The Fire TV Remote App enhances the Fire TV experience with simple navigation, a keyboard for easy text entry (no more hunting and pecking), quick access to your apps and games, plus voice search. Voice search is powered by the same voice search engine as Amazon Fire TV and supports the entirety of Fire TV’s integrated video, app and game catalogue. Note that voice search does not work directly inside individual applications such as Netflix.

Bug fixes and performance improvements

Handy when you lose the remote
I do find this app handy for when I can’t find the remote, but it doesn’t seem to connect when trailers play or when trying to click off a programme before it automatically plays the next episode (on Netflix). It’s so frustrating. No problems with connecting when I’m browsing or during a programme/film, only when it ends. This needs to be fixed for a higher rating. EDIT: this problem was fixed! Or at least I haven’t had this problem for about a week maybe two so I’ve noticed improvements... but since last night the app won’t connect at all. Tried checking for updates, tried restarting my phone... not working! Hopefully it’s just an update that’s not been made available yet making it mess around. I’ll keep checking for updates and will edit review if/when it’s working again.
Could Be So Much Better
We went away and took the Fire Stick but forgot the remote, I hoped there would be an app for it and was pleased to find this. My expectations should have been lower. First off It was nice and simple to connect to the stick but once connected I found myself having to use a large area of the screen as a navigation pad, this made it both clunky and overly sensitive causing me to swipe rapidly past what I wanted several times almost like using a mouse without a mousepad instead using a piece of paper.
I was chuffed to find that there was a keyboard which is far better than the usual remote and click click clicking which I’ve always found annoying. However to my surprise the keyboard refuses to type certain letters rendering the facility practically useless. So overall it’s ok in an emergency but really think they need to sort out the basics like the keyboard working & overhaul the weird navigation. I would use it in more than just emergency situations if that were the case.
Serves the purpose
Give it 4 star because I sometimes need to restart the app for it to pick up the stick but when it does pick up the app it's easy to use and has quick menu on the top. I obviously use it for Kodi and works sound for that too.
Restarting the app not the equipment resolves the issue sometimes you have to do it 3 or 4 times I would recommend getting this app on all of ur devices that are compatible as it's sometimes just easier to pick the iPad up or the other photos me instead of the restarting business
