Needs tap screen remote function

It's a really good app! And with control from an iPad.... It's even better! But... Instead of the actual remote function acting like a typical remote control, why wouldn't they basically mirror the Apple TV screen onto the iPad/iPhone with touchscreen control, so really you don't even need to be standing in front of the the Television . You could control a search or view what's playing. From your device. Is that possible? Seems like a more effective way to remote. Turn your TV into a remotely controlled touchscreen.

Needs icon in lock screen

When I'm at home using my Apple TV I prefer to use my iPhone/ iPad as the remote since I can AirPlay most videos or use the application to open HBO/Netflix etc. However having to go to the the Remote application then open it is more cumbersome than sliding up from the lock screen in the lower left hand corner similar to handoff/suggested apps. Apple please implement this or make it available as an option. Home sharing ensures same network already prehandoff, Bt 4 is on most A TVs would make it using the Apple TV more seamless.

Awful app

Finally decided to delete this from my phone.

While watching a playlist, I wanted to rewind. The app told me I needed to turn on home sharing (which is and always has been on). But no big deal as I didn't HAVE to rewind. Then once the playlist finished, I brought the app up again to start a new show. Went right past the home sharing part.. into it asking for which iTunes library. I chose mine (the only one available).. but that was then the point it decided to stop.

For something that is supposed to be for us lazy people.. working half the time is unacceptable. I'd rather just KNOW that I have to get up to start a different show than being surprised by it.
