Bad connection

I first discovered the app when a girl friend connected it to change what I was playing, I thought this could be handy! A few months after I got my fire stick the remote stopped working, I thought it was strange, changed the batteries but nothing. That’s when I really started using the app. It worked great at first but as days went on it would take a long time to find and connect to the fire stick. I tried my controller again which magically worked again. About a year later my dog chewed the controller so only the up and left button worked as well as the other so I couldn’t use it on the home screen since the down and right button didn’t work. Again same problem with the app, it can connect right away at times. Sometimes I have to try and connect 3-5 times meaning closing and opening the app. Other than getting connected the app works great! I like the keyboard feature which didn’t work for my iPhone 6s until the 11 generation update.

Bad Remote or Not - This App is Perfect!

Thought the batteries went dead in our Fire TV remote we’d only had a couple months, replaced the batteries, troubleshooted, contacted support, tried everything under the sun to no avail. Discovered this app and was back in business! It’s actually easier to use than the remote because it has a keyboard so saves a lot of time when searching for something, and I love how you can swipe up to fast forward 10 minutes, or swipe right to FF 10 seconds - it’s been SO much better than using the FF button that takes wayyy too long to buffer through everything. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Better than nothing, but not by much

We lost the FireStick remote in a move. Unfortunately, new remotes are on back order for the next month. I downloaded this app hoping it would be a good fix-gap. Sometimes, it works okay. Other times, it cannot connect to the FireStick. Even when the stick is connected to the internet and working perfectly well. Every time you need to use the app, it has to re-connect to the FireStick. This is a process that may take 5 seconds, or may take 2 minutes... while you're waiting to pause the show or make a selection. Then there are times that it refuses to connect at all. Extremely frustrating. I'm holding my breath until I can get a new remote next month!
