  • Easy fix


    By Mwangota
    I usually don’t do reviews but here it goes... this app has always worked great for me especially since I have lost the physical remote. But recently for about a week or so when I attempted to watch anything the app would not let go up,down,left or right I could however click on the setting button and it would immediately take me to settings but again I could not go up,down,left or right and when I clicked the home button it immediately went to the home button but I still couldn’t move around. I came on here in the reviews to see if anyone was having this issue I had attempted to unplug and re-plug the fire stick and I was still have the same issue. Today I decided to contact support through the app and selected call me, so I immediately got a call waited less than 1 minute and they actually helped me. She was able to take control of my screen and see what I was talking about she had me troubleshoot by reinstalling this app on my phone than unplugging the fire stick from my tv wait 2-3 minutes than plug it back in and to my surprise it WORKED i guess waiting before replugging helped because I had unplugged the fire stick before but not that long just like a couple seconds so yeah hope someone can find this helpful.
  • Doesn’t connect to firestick.


    By Sissy W
    I’m always getting a “reconnecting” message or “cannot locate firestick” message and the letters “s” and “r” don’t work on the keyboard. My remote that comes with the firestick quit working so I downloaded this app and it doesn’t work!! I’m spending too much time trying to get the remote app to work and if it doesn’t work I can’t use the firestick. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled but that has not helped. I’m constantly having to unplug my firestick to get the remote app to work. I have problems with the remote app about 6 times a day, every day. I do hope you get this fixed, if not I’m going to have to look into another tv device to purchase because I don’t have satellite or cable. It also may be a good idea to look into the reasons why the remote that comes with the firestick, quits working so soon. I’m very disappointed in the quality of this product. A remote should work longer than 6 months and the remote app should be able to locate the firestick when the firestick is on and playing and the keyboard should allow all letters to be typed in. Thank you for your time. Update:Even with the update and bug fixes it doesn’t work. It won’t connect or it can’t find the device. I’m in the middle of using it and it starts reconnecting then it can’t connect while I’m using it, no stopping just scrolling.
  • It’s not just me!

    I finally had enough and decided to write a bad review to see if maybe it will get the developers to fix the app, but in reading the very first featured review I saw when I came to the AppStore, it seems you’ve already been told about this problem, and for whatever reason, have yet to fix it. My remote works fine for one button press and that’s it for up to 15-20 minutes. My iPhone app does the exact same thing so if I want to watch a Netflix program, I have literally had to click Netflix with the iPad, then while it’s getting ready to use again I try and type in what I want to watch, then when I’m done with that, I have no choice but to sit and wait 10 minutes for either the iPad or iPhone to work again then repeat the process, till I am finally able to get to a show and push play before it freezes again. Which, being as it’s only job on the world is to change channels and it can’t do that, then you’re quite lucky I gave u two stars instead of one. I gave you two because this used to be a good app. I would like to see it like that again, so maybe pay attention to your 2.8 stars and do something about this.
  • Horrible app for horrible device. Buy the Apple TV 4K i wish I did


    By Matthew K Hathaway
    The remote ticks for some reason and goes through AAA batteries faster than anything else I have ever used. The app is either trying to connect or reconnect constantly. on the off chance it connects it works great until you navigate off the app to do anything else on your device. Once you have opened anything else on your device or the screen has gone to sleep good luck getting the app connected again. Most frustrating part of all of it is the device I’m using it on, the Fire cube, is suppose to be remote free. HA HA HA she is even more frustrating than the app. “I’m sorry I don’t know that one, I’m sorry I don’t understand!” You don’t know or understand pause? Home? Volume up or down? She get the basics 90% of the time but lord forbid you ask her to pause a movie. If she actually understands what pause is and how to do it when you get back and want to resume or play the movie don’t say play or she will start playing some random song I am sure no one has ever heard of. If you say resume she will very rarely restart your movie but most of the time just say “I don’t understand”. Horrible app for a horrible device.
  • Very Convenient/Easy to Use


    By RTurner623
    My dogs chewed up our remote, so I found this app to use in the meantime! It is also super easy to figure out as well. The blank touch pad was a little confusing at first, but it’s not difficult to navigate. I do think the app would attract more users if there was some kind of circle dial similar to the Fire TV remote or at least 4 directional arrows so it’s easy to specify direction you are clicking instead of having to tap on the blank center touch pad. There was another remote app that has this, but it wants you to pay to subscribe and does not seem to be as good as this app. The only major downside of this remote app and other remote apps I’ve looked into, is that they don’t seem to have volume control options, so I’m still going to have to buy an actual remote because of this. If it wasn’t for the volume issue, I would be happy just using this app from now on.
  • Remote does to frequently


    By SharikaD
    The app itself gets 4 stars. But the TV/TV Remote definitely a 1 star. App is great to fall back on when tv/tv remote not acting right. Glad we do have an app to assist. Thought the idea of this smart tv Element with Alexa was an good idea, so I bought the tv on clearance pretty much half price. I really realize you get for what you pay for. To keep up with the modernization of what is going on, they just push items out way too fast. Usually I look at reviews before I purchase something but this was on a whim. I feel like I’m changing batteries in this remote once a month, why is the question? I feel like I have an defective tv and remote. I have only had this tv for 4 months within the first month I had to have the remote replaced, so I’m on my second remote. I just give up with this tv
  • This app is a NO ...


    By MeKayLOVE
    This app is convenient especially for me because my remote disconnected from my firestick and completely malfunctioned. (Only reason i gave it 2 stars for the convenience) So the app came in handy for me to be able to watch my firestick (for a moment). However it continuously discounts from my television and then won’t reconnect, so then I’m disabled from watching on my firestick again. I’m just glad I have an actual remote being delivered because this app is trash. The accuracy of the touch of buttons and big screen in the middle to portray the up down left right is completely off. I really wouldn’t suggest the use of this app unless you desperately need to, like I had to because of my remote malfunctioning. But I CANT WAIT to get my remote in the mail because I can’t keep trying to reconnect this app to the tv, and the only solution it says is “make sure you’re signed in under the same account as your firestick tv” 🙄 I am but it still won’t reconnect. A waste. I suggest to do some modifications update/upgrade on this application
  • Practically Unusable


    By Elisethebeasf
    In the modern age where everything is a tap or button press away, I never thought I’d be forced to use such a nonsensical, awkward, and simply inoperable tool to flounder my way through an app which I’d previously thought unintuitive enough, but the mobile remote function is about as far from convenient as it gets. Its design is painfully obscure to use, making menu navigation maddeningly impossible. Inexplicably, neither a screen interface appears on your phone nor does a cursor appear on your smart tv. It’s clumsy, offering no reprieve from its terrible mismatched jigsaw puzzle of functions that seem to argue with you as you try them out in vain, systematically destroying your patience and sanity one step at a time. It’s about the only thing advertised as ‘free’ whereupon installing it you realize the steep price was your time and effort, and suddenly looking for the microscopic, equally unlabeled remote lost in the physical world is no longer so Herculean a task. Truly one of the quickest regrets I’ve ever experienced, this app’s utilization, borne from necessity and not desire, will surely cause me to seek therapy.
  • Works great until it doesn’t


    By kukuk4cocopuffs
    I use this app because my plastic remote stopped working all of a sudden. It works fine, and I like that it has a keyboard feature so I can type more quickly than searching out individual letters. However, some of the features of the app remote don’t translate to certain fire stick apps, so it can be difficult to maneuver those apps with the slide screen on the remote app. And the app suddenly stops working with my tv and will not work for a day or two at a time before it magically works again. I will be using it to hit play on one show, and when I try to use the remote app a few minutes later it stops working. It shows that you’ve moved your finger on the selection pad, and it shows that the buttons have been pressed at the right time, but nothing changes on the tv screen itself. It’s quite frustrating when this happens, but when this app is great when it decides to work.
  • Not the WORST


    By InstaTom23
    This app is useful when it needs to be. Like if the remote is across the room and I'm on my phone, it's super convenient that I don't need to stand to grab the remote when I have the same capabilities on my phone (so it's perfect for laziness) other than that, the app has connectivity issues. It takes a few tries before I can connect my phone to the firestick. I need to exit out of the app multiple times to reset it and hope it connects. Took me about 6 tries just now? Yesterday it connected instantly on the 1st try. Other days it's all over. Inconsistent. The only complaint I have other than the connectivity (which I can get over) is the fact that you can't control your TV volume. They should have a volume feature built into the app itself to allow manual control of the volume instead of using the TV's volume functionality. I used to use certain players that have volume adjustments built in so I know it's possible. Anyway, not a bad idea just executed poorly.
