Apple TV Remote App Reviews

  • They keep updating it and only making it worse

    The app worked fine. Then they keep adding updates that push me to just not use it at all
  • Seriously?

    Whoever is in charge of this app needs adult supervision.
  • New update is HORRIBLE

    The new update is horrible. Slow, and unresponsive. Cannot play/pause by tapping the “touch pad” any longer, nor can you rewind and fast forward like on the physical remote by using the middle “touch pad” like you could previously. You’ve made the app far worse than it was with this update. I use to love using my iphone/iPad as the remote for my Apple TVs..but now I use the physical remote. This update needs to be fixed.
  • Update Broke The App

    When I tap the main screen it no longer brings up the timeline, so can flick to advance a show. You can manually pause, but you only get one flick and then it becomes non responsive. Volume works sometimes but not always. Fix this please, it worked pretty well and I got really used to it.
  • Functions to dupe physical remote.

    This app duplicates a subset of the functionality of the physical remote pretty well. Other than that, it doesn't "wow". Some complaints: - Network connectivity fails after a few uses and continues to fail until I restart the Apple TV. - Details shows more info for a Hulu TV show than an iTunes TV show!?! - I feel bad saying this, but I think the app is ugly. It's so black and plain. Maybe when they integrate iTunes it will add some color and beauty (what I think of as beauty, anyway). - There is no special version of the app for iPad. I realize that may not seem especially necessary. Still, Apple has accepted billions of dollars from everybody (including so much for adapters, for pity's sake) and has so much in the bank, so I find it hard to forgive this not-so-special user experience.
  • New update

    Please provide a fix, I can no longer use the app and I’ve updated everything. Looks old school also
  • New update makes unusable

    Adding to all the responses that the most recent update makes the remote nearly unusable. Trackpad is unresponsive making it nearly impossible to rewind and fast forward aside from tapping the 10 second button over and over. Also, suddenly I have trouble connecting to my devices. The latest update took a great app and made it unusable.
  • Update ruined it

    By Xxxzzzqaq
    Worked perfect but after the update I can’t use the virtual trackpad to scroll anymore. Can only “click” with it. Also not a fan of how it takes up the entire screen and you have to swipe home to close out of it.
  • Crap

    Remote doesn’t work I can’t swipe or pause
  • Update needed soon

    This app needs updated to resolve the bugs. Multitouch functionality ( swipe, tap to play pause, scrubbing forward and backward ) is not as responsive as the previous version. Please return the ten second fast forward and rewind feature.
