Went from Working to NOT Working
Apple TV is a big deal in my house! We love to stream everything on demand right from the Apple TV to our iPhones. With that being said..lately our Apple TV won't show up on our control center in my iPhone or my wife's iPhone as it would always appear as "AirPlay". I went back made sure everything was under the same network and everything was ok but for some reason still not allowing my remote app to have any response. I held the Apple TV icon on my remote app and now I can't reconnect it to my Apple TV it's asking me to do home sharing something I didn't have to even do and it was working perfectly fine. I set up the home sharing on both Apple TV and my iPhone and still nothing!!! I updated my remote app and my 3rd generation Apple TV is updated to the latest update and still won't connect!! I figured maybe it's just my phone so I tried to connect my wife's phone to our Apple TV and same problem no response ! This is starting to become very frustrating!!! I would really appreciate it if apple was to just take the time to creat a well performing product and not sale it till they get it right there shouldn't be no need to wait for updates to fix bugs or issues especially since apple doesn't give out inconvenience discounts no they charge full price and the product performance should be met at those expectations... Just get it right for once apple you have one job just one job, it shouldn't be too hard!!!
I thought to myself this is just what I needed to use with my iTunes. My computer is inside and I could control my music out by the pool. But then some days it would work or sometimes and other times not at all. It was very aggravating. Recently I could not even get it to find my library. kept getting message to turn home sharing on which it was already on. Today I uninstalled iTunes from my PC and then reinstalled it and now it's working again. Good luck with this app!
This is my second review of this app. This app is still very inconsistent working my iTunes library with this remote. I can be standing right in front of my computer and it will tell me to turn on home sharing on over and over and over, but it is already turned down on my iTunes account. I love the concept of this app however it does not work consistently I can be logged onto my music library. And go to change a song or turn up the volume. And the connection is down and will not reconnect.
Would you please get this app to work right and keeps me from running from outside to inside to adjust my music.
Months after the Apple TV 4 release, it finally supports Apple Remote app. Except, contrary to what the description says, it doesn't have the same support as Appke TV 3: you can't browse your iTunes library within the app. The only thing it supports with the Appke TV 4 is pretty much the same functionality as the Touch Remote, plus text entry. It doesn't support browsing the library and selecting the music or movies you want to play: you have to use the app just the same way you'd use the Touch Remote to control your Apple TV to navigate to the music or a movie you want to play.
I don't know what's going on at Apple these days, but it's not the Apple we all grew to love and respect. Releasing unfinished products, with severely limited functionality - much worse than the older products - is not something I'm sure Steve Jobs would have allowed.
At this point I have switched back to Apple TV 3 and am contemplating getting a Roku. Apple TV 4 is crap, and I don't believe Apple is ever going to address its shortcomings.
