Great but...

The hole app is great if like you lost the real remote or something but the thing is is that on the control centre if you've added the apple tv remote thing to the control it just doesn't is just dose not and it should not be this bad knowing that it's an iPhone 7 using the control centre apple tv thing! If you could fix that issue in the apple tv thing in the control centre i'd be happy.

Started off Great but went downhill afterwards

What use to be a great app is now useless. I feel like Apple does this purposely to get people spend money on a remote instead of the app. I now have to restart the whole thing to get the app to connect to my phone. Call me a conspiracy theorist but this only started happening when I updated the app. Slowly and steadily Apple is chasing me away from their products.


Working again

This app has working again for me on iPhone and iPad. I assume that an update to the Apple TV has corrected the connection problem reported by several people.
