Nice, But isn’t working now

Ok so this app is pretty useful, because I lost my Apple remote and can’t find it literally anywhere. For a while it worked really great and was better then having to individually have to swipe to get to the letters, the keypad was so much better. But lately it has not been working at all for me. I’ve un-installed and installed again and still nothing. This is pretty frustrating especially whenever my little brother wants to watch a movie. Frozen 2 is all he watches and will not move a inch when it plays. It’s practically his entertaining babysitter. So it’s telling me that I need to connect to WiFi... but I am connected... and my phone doesn’t need internet to work. Like I could easily go to safari in the middle of nowhere. As long as I have service. But I also did have service because I was in my house. I don’t know if you can fix this but if you do it would be greatly appreciated. Have a fantastic day.

What’s everyone’s problem?

Seriously I’m like the person you do not want reviewing you if either you have a bad app or if you’re ripping off ppl.
This app is neither of the above mentioned. Idk what everyone’s major malfunction is. If you want to do a bad review for an app that’s earned it wholly, head over to miniclip games. They’re a rip off. Believe me I KNOW. This app has actually saved my backside a few times when I had a lost remote. Currently though I am having minor issues with my living room Apple TV, for some reason it will not pair with that remote and to be able to add another remote like this app, you need to be able to get to a certain screen (settings) to be able to pair. Same thing for HboGo and all the other movie channels too. Just use common sense ppl, I cannot imagine why anyone would be anything but grateful for this app. My 5 year old can maneuver round Apple TV with this iPad/iPhone remote. LoL. If you can’t, you probably shouldn’t even have an Apple TV- at all
Just keepin it real.

A must have app when using an Apple TV

I’ve never understood why so many people have negative reviews about this app. My family and I have been using this application since around 2011 with our first Apple TV (2nd generation) using multiple iPhone 4’s. Through the years we’ve upgraded to new iPhone hardware (4S, 5, 6, 6S, 7, XS) and new iOS software as follows as well as newer Apple TV models (3rd gen, 4th gen, 4K) and still use multiple on our home network. I (We) have never had a single issue with performance or operation of how this app works- period. Most of the negative reviews that I’ve seen are in relation to what sounds as potential networking related issues as this application uses your network to communicate, hardware limitations as to what is wanted out of the application or user error... take it for what it’s worth everyone in my family uses this app for a remote to control multiple Apple TV units throughout are home and none of us have ever had any issues.
