Apple TV Remote App Reviews

  • Doesn’t work on iPhone 6

    By gumaddict
    Got this app on iPhone 6 to use when we couldn’t find the remote for our Apple TV. Once you pair it with your tv, the app tells you to go into settings on your tv and type in a code, so if you don’t have the apple remote, then it doesn’t work. Note: I have only used the app on iPhone 6 and 8, it worked on the 8 but not on the 6.
  • Best app I’ve ever used

    Don’t know how this app doesn’t have 5 star rating. It’s the best
  • App is horrible

    By LdEp86
    This is the worst app. I only use it because I have to. I have to unplug the Apple TV every single time I use the remote. It constantly says on wrong WiFi and doesn’t even open. Sometimes when using it just freezes.

    Since the upgrade, this app does not allow you to swipe up, down, left, right. Only the menu button works (back). Had to purchase an actual Apple Remote via Amazon. Doesn’t work on any device (iPhone or iPad).
  • Won’t connect

    Since update, my Apple TV doesn’t show up.
  • Doesn’t work.

    The old Apple TV app “remote” worked fine enough. Been trying to use this for a few days and haven’t been able to connect it to my Apple TV even once. Totally useless and now I can’t use my phone to control my tv. Two thumbs way down.
  • Almost great

    Please add volume controls
  • Seriously the worse...

    By Angry and frustrated Will
    The only thing that makes sense is that the developers intentionally sabotaged the app (which was working great prior to this update) to force customers to buy replacement remotes. I am done with Apple TV after this.
  • What Happened?

    By white716
    Before a recent update the option to input the passcode in via the app was great! Now that the option for inputting the numbers of the passcode in privately on my phone is a pain because I have to send my kids out frequently to they can’t see the passcode.
