Works great until it doesn’t
I use this app because my plastic remote stopped working all of a sudden. It works fine, and I like that it has a keyboard feature so I can type more quickly than searching out individual letters. However, some of the features of the app remote don’t translate to certain fire stick apps, so it can be difficult to maneuver those apps with the slide screen on the remote app. And the app suddenly stops working with my tv and will not work for a day or two at a time before it magically works again. I will be using it to hit play on one show, and when I try to use the remote app a few minutes later it stops working. It shows that you’ve moved your finger on the selection pad, and it shows that the buttons have been pressed at the right time, but nothing changes on the tv screen itself. It’s quite frustrating when this happens, but when this app is great when it decides to work.
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.
Very Convenient/Easy to Use
My dogs chewed up our remote, so I found this app to use in the meantime! It is also super easy to figure out as well. The blank touch pad was a little confusing at first, but it’s not difficult to navigate. I do think the app would attract more users if there was some kind of circle dial similar to the Fire TV remote or at least 4 directional arrows so it’s easy to specify direction you are clicking instead of having to tap on the blank center touch pad. There was another remote app that has this, but it wants you to pay to subscribe and does not seem to be as good as this app. The only major downside of this remote app and other remote apps I’ve looked into, is that they don’t seem to have volume control options, so I’m still going to have to buy an actual remote because of this. If it wasn’t for the volume issue, I would be happy just using this app from now on.
