Sometimes it works great...buuutt Every time you pull up a new app even if you don’t exit out of the remote it has to reconnect which can take some time. If you’re using Netflix, the keyboard sometimes doesn’t connect right so you’ll type something on the app and only half the letters show up on the tv.
Works for about 5 minutes. From then on it will not connect to the fire stick or my account. I wish these app developers would really test their product before we waste our time like this.
When I put my phone on standby (black screen) when I open the app it always has trouble reconnecting after a movie has started. I always have to power down my phone to get it to go into reconnect status. Irritating
I’ve wanted to give this app a shot (as I’ve had it for 3 months now), but I am curious to as why you can not connect to it 75% of the time.
When I use it, if my phone turns the screen off, trying to get back to it doesn’t work. It just says it’s tryna to connect. I have to restart the app for it to work again 8 times out of 10. It’s a pest.
I like that I can use the remote from my phone, but it rarely works without me having to force close it. After opening the app, it’s fine. But as soon as my phone falls asleep, anytime I try and use it it just says “connecting “ and hangs, and is unusable without force quitting. Its really annoying. After the last update it briefly would only hang for a minute, but now it’s back to being unusable again. I would love it if you all could permanently fix this issue.
This app is HORRIBLE. It has disconnected on me so many times and either takes about 10 try’s to reconnect or it doesn’t at all and after a a couple days when I try again, a code will pop up to enter in my phone and it’ll start working again. BUT only for a little and then it will disconnect again. There is no way to unpair the tv that you can just reconnect it whenever it does disconnect. So you have to wait u til it decides it wants to work again. HORRIBLE!!!!
I lost my Firestick remote (how does that happen in a one bedroom condo?) but was thrilled to find that I could use an app to replace it—until I used this app. It consistently disconnects or is unable to connect to my WiFi despite a brand new router and modem. I can’t wait to move and buy a smart tv so I don’t have to deal with this piece of crap any longer. Oh. And if you want to buy a new remote, it’s pretty much the same as buying a new Firestick.
I suppose it’s convenient when the fire the remote stops working (which seems to happen often) or its across the room... but for being amazon, it’s horribly designed and always seems to have the following glitches: 1. It never stays connected. I’m constantly having to reconnect it to the device 2. This one is the worst... it automatically goes to a keyboard function or something. Every time I open it up I first need to click ‘back’ to get to the mousepad type screen where it actually is functional. Drives me crazy.
I’m on my 3rd one. Once again it has stopped working. About time to give up on this app I guess.
Disappointed that the App does not work. Although the fire TV is discovered, it fails to connect on the same WiFi network. Re-installing the app also does not help.
The app now mandates that you sign into the Amazon account associated with your Fire TV to start using the remote functionality. Even after you’ve complied, though, you probably won’t have much luck establishing a connection. In fact, I haven’t been able to successfully use the app since they updated it.
was working great until recent app update now disconnects and i have to reset either fire tv or phone for it to work if i switch out and go to another app ie instagram or fb when going back to firetv app stops working
Works well on 1st generation direct stick from iPhone 6s pro
Impossible to login on my iPhoneX with google Authenticator. Every time I flip between the apps to paste the code in, this app logs me out and I have to enter in my username and password again.
Some of the letters doesn’t work on keyboard. R right now but sometimes others. But great other than that.
App was always a little buggy...but ok. After the last update, it will not even open. Complete crash. And support on this...doesn’t exist.
The update sucksssss why sign me out every 5 min
The app is good but occasionally it is impossible to connect to my fire tv.
I like the concept of the app but it doesn’t really do anything great. You’re better off just using the remote.
Good back up plan for firestick remote, but could be better if it connects immediately.
Some letters you can’t type also the mouse option doesn’t work !!! I don’t even think the developer are reading our reviews !
The letter ‘r’ doesn’t work. Keep trying to type it and it just doesn’t work. Not a bad app to use when the remote doesn’t work but I have to use the remote to type.
If I could give it -20 stars I would.
It would be great to be able to permanently change the name of the firesticks. They’re four in my home, it as lazy as this sounds, it’s a bit difficult to determine which is which, especially after a significant amount of time
