Ratings and Reviews
Please give us a better update with this app
I’ve been using this app for maybe a year now and I love the fact that we have this as a backup as our other remote is broken. Now, since using this app, it has been a lifesaver! But, for some reason it doesn’t always want to connect to my fire tv and when I’m selecting it seems the “button” gets stuck. It’ll skip all over the place! I don’t know if it’s the version of iPhone I have (6 Plus) or just the app itself. And sometimes Alexa doesn’t always work within this app either. I might just need to buy another remote and simply use this for emergency cases. Which I’m sure that is what was intended when created, however, it doesn’t seem practical to use daily with the issues that I am experiencing. Overall, it’s great in a bind and although the issues I am experiencing are frustrating, it gets the job done!
Doesn’t connect to firestick.
I’m always getting a “reconnecting” message or “cannot locate firestick” message and the letters “s” and “r” don’t work on the keyboard. My remote that comes with the firestick quit working so I downloaded this app and it doesn’t work!! I’m spending too much time trying to get the remote app to work and if it doesn’t work I can’t use the firestick. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled but that has not helped. I’m constantly having to unplug my firestick to get the remote app to work. I have problems with the remote app about 6 times a day, every day. I do hope you get this fixed, if not I’m going to have to look into another tv device to purchase because I don’t have satellite or cable. It also may be a good idea to look into the reasons why the remote that comes with the firestick, quits working so soon. I’m very disappointed in the quality of this product. A remote should work longer than 6 months and the remote app should be able to locate the firestick when the firestick is on and playing and the keyboard should allow all letters to be typed in. Thank you for your time.
Update:Even with the update and bug fixes it doesn’t work. It won’t connect or it can’t find the device. I’m in the middle of using it and it starts reconnecting then it can’t connect while I’m using it, no stopping just scrolling.
This app is a NO ...
This app is convenient especially for me because my remote disconnected from my firestick and completely malfunctioned. (Only reason i gave it 2 stars for the convenience) So the app came in handy for me to be able to watch my firestick (for a moment).
However it continuously discounts from my television and then won’t reconnect, so then I’m disabled from watching on my firestick again. I’m just glad I have an actual remote being delivered because this app is trash.
The accuracy of the touch of buttons and big screen in the middle to portray the up down left right is completely off. I really wouldn’t suggest the use of this app unless you desperately need to, like I had to because of my remote malfunctioning. But I CANT WAIT to get my remote in the mail because I can’t keep trying to reconnect this app to the tv, and the only solution it says is “make sure you’re signed in under the same account as your firestick tv” 🙄 I am but it still won’t reconnect. A waste.
I suggest to do some modifications update/upgrade on this application
