Serves it’s purpose but it could use some improvements
I use it primarily to control music from my apple tv while sitting at my desk and working. I don’t belive the function of using the keyboard keys works or only work while clicked into the app, it would be nice if I could hit a command that simply equaled right, left, select etc., or having the commands in to menu bar my mac would also be extremely helpful! All in all it allows me to control my apple tv, it is just more work switching through appls than I would like.
Works great, just like the description says it should!
If you need an apple tv remote for your apple laptop or desktop, this is a perfect solution.
The only thing I would like to see it have in the future (as a feature request) would be to set up the remote so it could pause video too. I’m trying to pause shows on netflix by using the “OK” button, like I would with the apple remote, but unfortunately it doesn’t work like that currently.
I LOVE using the arrows and enter keys on my keyboard to navigate around however, thanks for making this and I’d be happy to pay something nominal to continue app development. $2.99 to $4.99/download?
Saved me $20!
I lost my remote for my Apple TV, and I reset my Apple TV because it was acting up. I didn’t realize till afterward that I wouldn’t be able to use my Apple Remote app on my phone. What a freak out I had. This is the only way my children watch TV, so you can guess I was combing the internet right away for info on what to do. I remembered when I reset my Apple TV it said I could use a bluetooth keyboard, so I wondered about my MacBook, if I could use it. So i searched in the app store for an Apple Remote, and then here and behold this app popped up. What a life saver! Now everything is up and running again. Thanks a million!!
