Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The Fire TV Remote App enhances the Fire TV experience with simple navigation, a keyboard for easy text entry (no more hunting and pecking), quick access to your apps and games, plus voice search. Voice search is powered by the same voice search engine as Amazon Fire TV and supports the entirety of Fire TV’s integrated video, app and game catalogue. Note that voice search does not work directly inside individual applications such as Netflix.

What's New in Version 1.0.15
Adds support for Amazon Fire TV Edition
Clunky to use
The main reason to use a remote app vs a physical remote is for the full keyboard. There is room for a lot of improvement there. Being able to copy and paste would be a huge plus. But for now since there is no copy paste, when I have to enter a long search term or address I have to leave the remote app for a second to glance at my browser... and then when I come back the app has closed the keyboard and I have to re-open it. Very frustrating.
Needs headphone support
Good app. Has all the features of the physical remote and now you can reorder apps. If they could just add headphone support for personal listening like Roku has, the app would be almost perfect.
Good app! Adding a paste option when using the keyboard would be cool
