Great App - Volume functionality for direct AppleTV usage??

I love the concept of the app, however some functionality that I would presume to be very straight forward.. Is not available when using on AppleTV 4th Gen - volume for example? I can switch songs and view 'Now Playing' but have no opportunity to change the volume?? Or, in particular apps the touch function does not work - at all. Maybe this is because I still have my AppleTV remote connected anyway, or even that my iPhone5s doesn't have force touch - But Apple being Apple, I would presume there would be an alternate solution for this? It would be great if I was able to view my Apple Music account, similar to the screenshots advertising this app, but I'm presuming those screen shots are controlling alternate devices rather than AppleTV..? Hopefully in the next release Apple can fix some of these things up. :) Otherwise, very useful app. But as it stands, if Remote Mouse brought out an AppleTV companion app.. Their functionality is definitely closer to what I would have expected to come out of an apple app.. I would definitely choose their app over this one.

Used to be a great app

Recently, however, buggy as hell. Will only connect with iTunes when I first open iTunes - but if left long enough to lock or if I exit the app, it is no longer able to find iTunes, even if I reboot the app. Also, iTunes seems to have no option to manually pair the remote, in spite of the help page saying there is a "remote" button, I've been unable to find it

Glitchy and drops connection easy.

When it's working this is great. But more than often it's not working. It glitches trying to connect to Apple TV. With a $1400 phone and a $200 Apple TV device surely The remote app should work flawlessly.

I've been watching all the Steve job movies and interview.. I swear he would have a bar of this. Sort it out.
