Update broke the app


After the update during the end of March 2018, it shows that my Apple TV is offline even though both my iPhone and Apple TV are on the same network, so it doesn’t allow remote control via the app. Curiously, screen mirroring still works between the iPhone and Apple TV. App is thus not usable any more. Please fix it!

Overall great


Super usefull, but can you add that i can type in the movie name via keyboard on the iphone. That was the whole point of downloading it in the first place.
