Literally never works

It almost never works. I have Home Sharing on, on both devices, my computer and my phone. My computer is connected via Ethernet so it really shouldn’t have any problems on that end. I have a brand new iPhone 8 so I doubt it’s some sort of hardware issue. When I use the iTunes Remote, it will work, but the moment you leave the app, even if you have “Stay Connected” on, it will automatically desync. It is a constant struggle to get it to resume again since I have to constantly go back to my computer, turn off Home Sharing, remove the remote from my history, and turn off and on Home Sharing on both my phone and computer. Then, we play the chance game where it will HOPEFULLY find my library, and when it does, it’s again a chance game between will it or will it not let me connect to it. Then, once you’re finally in, the app’s interface is extremely basic and limits a lot of features. It also disconnects a lot...

This app is garbage, but it can be useful to impress your guests, or completely embarrass you when it doesn’t work the moment you hope it does...

When It Works, It’s Nice!

Except half the time I open the app, it won’t connect to my Apple TV. The Apple TV I want to select will be greyed out, so it’s recognized as a source when WiFi is connected, but you can’t select it. This happens at least 50% of the time I try to use the app. Sometimes I’ll have to restart my iPhone and Apple TV and only sometimes that will fix it but when it does, 10-minutes later it’s unable to connect again. This app is great when it works and I can’t get my lazy self up to find the actually Apple TV remote, but like I keep saying, at least 1/2 of the time it does not work and that is not going to keep it on my phone for much longer. Hope they fix these glitches soon...

The most brilliant piece of software ever created

Using the Remote app can only be described as a thrilling life-changing adventure unlike any other you’ll ever experience. While earlier versions of this app were sorely lacking, the most recent update is nothing short of breathtaking, setting a new standard not only for iPhone apps but for all software on all past, current and future platforms. I can confidently say that this update will go down in history as the most brilliant, visionary piece of software ever conceived, the likes of which we will never see again.
