Good App
Juaritos100 on 8/21/2017
Esta bien esta aplicacion me a funcionado muy bien lo recomiendo aparte que es gratuita el app
Resets when you exit
Glennsf on 8/20/2017
Cannot close the app after playing a show or it resets. Useless
Works for me
_[wolrah]_ on 8/20/2017
Great when I lose the remote. I can just use my phone instead.
Great App
Shaggy.retz on 8/20/2017
My remote stopped working. Nuff said.
Seems ok
Dmb0525 on 8/20/2017
It's pretty good at opening programs and starting shows, but when you try to leave the remote it forces out of the video and goes back to the home screen. Also keeps requiring me to reconnect with new pins. Good in theory, but not executed well yet.
amira626 on 8/20/2017
Seriously one of the most frustrating apps. It doesn't always connect, sometimes have to close it & sign out/in multiple times. Sometimes I have to shut down my phone and it still won't work. Often I can't search by typing b/c it's not supported. Unfortunately IDK where my actual remote is so I put up with the BS but I wish they would give this a major overhaul.
Amazon Fire TV

Great picture quality 👍
Are we in 2012 or 2017?
netflixndix on 8/20/2017
We have the tech to have great programs, but the fire stick isn't quite there yet. Hopefully their next version will be better. Get Apple TV and save your time and money.
Weird bug
ahr113 on 8/20/2017
Works fine as a remote, but like another reviewer said, if you decide to use this when using HBO, the second you close the app, the app stops playing your program. Very odd and annoying bug that should've been fixed before the app was released. I'm giving it 1 star because this 1 bug makes the app literally unusable.
Great app
Yopi3431 on 8/19/2017
I love the app work very good
Don't know!!!
bambinetto on 8/19/2017
This app looks like it's not completely compatible with the fire tv stick I lost my control and I used this app for two day before giving up!!!!
I wanted to throw the remote
YW Exceptional on 8/19/2017
My son showed me how to use the app but it was very intuitive! Easy peazy!! Thanks for the app!
Take a look at Rokus App
Yikes7503 on 8/19/2017
PLEASE ADD PRIVATE LISTENING ABILITY LIKE ROKU. Super awesome for when husband is sleeping but I want to watch fire :)
Love it
Goooooooooolllllloooooo on 8/19/2017

I dig it.
Fire stick app
Nikkibrown420 on 8/19/2017
Love especially since couldn't get my remote to work
If you have nothing ekse to watch...
Lillibet475 on 8/19/2017
I guess you can try PRIME - but if there's some way to search for a specific movie, I can't find it! Even after going onling on Amazon HELP, I'm no better off.
Helpful but can be difficult
omarkarim1 on 8/19/2017
I only use this, it's really great, works the simple concept of a remote great, but it does return back to the home screen about every 7 seconds you don't use it. That can be very bothersome. Also it take forever to load.
App is better than remote
mulsavvy on 8/19/2017
As was the case with several other reviewers on here, my remote stopped working; however, I prefer this app to the remote. When I'm watching YouTube on my phone, I can transfer the video to my t.v. screen without having to navigate any menus or anything- I just touch an icon above the video, use the "input" setting that my firebox is plugged into, and can even line up following videos in a queue to watch next. ** Update: I still prefer the app to the remote to navigate the menu, etc., but it drives me nuts that the remote app has to reconnect to Fire TV every 3 minutes or so (when my phone "sleeps"/screen falls dark)!
Jeypalm on 8/18/2017
Great hardware, and great originals... My ne favorite show is Amazon's FLEABAG.
Love it
ThatPerryGirl on 8/18/2017
I love this app! It's actually better then the remote because you can search videos by typing them out on your keyboard vs old school text style typing!
Need landscape mode
Chiron Unicorn on 8/18/2017
On iPad please enable screen rotation. Screen casting from iPad to fire tv would be helpful.
When You Have No Remote
Supersean1 on 8/18/2017
At A Relative They Had A TV With Buttons And No Remote And I Had My Fire Stick TV And I Had Forgot My Remote For The Fire Stick And I Remembered This App And It Saved Me From Bordom
Love it
DEMOMESS on 8/18/2017
It's a great addition to my entertainment throughout my home

Love it
Better Than Box Remote
Jafsr on 8/18/2017
This app works just perfectly. And you have keyboard built in so no more wasted time navigating to create words quickly. I have checking the reviews. It makes one wonder, why is the original remote control so easy to lose?? An answer to planned obsolescence.
Much better than using the remote!
Nathanms33 on 8/18/2017
My remote malfunctions a lot and this is a life saver
An unacceptably bad user interface
ls4wires on 8/17/2017
We only use it once in a while. The ability to find what you want out of a list of thousands is worthless when it cannot remember what you were watching 10 minutes ago, after you put it on pause for a short break. It looses everything when it goes to sleep. Seriously, Amazon needs to poach some good Apple engineers to get the job done right.
Use it more than the actual remote
Hdksgwj on 8/17/2017
Use it more than the actual remote
Micchellie on 8/17/2017
Decently done, fire tv remote app crashes every other time I attempted to open. The app also occasionally make my phone freeze. If the keyboard gets integrated to the fire tv remote app that would be a massive improvement. Cause using the app is just as slow as the remote. Actual remote for fire tv is always out of stock and they sell none in store.
A necessity but also lacking
Muffin Man 2004 on 8/17/2017
When you lose the physical remote, this is a godsend. But it's by no means perfect. Crashes, won't awake from sleep, will claim it cannot find Fire TV... It makes your phone a big touchpad, and that's about the extent of its helpfulness. Keyboard feature is a nice win.
Pretty good
Frankdtank52134 on 8/16/2017
Lost my remote so this is great
Access code
yanni2222 on 8/16/2017
Even after connecting successfully, I am constantly notified that I have to enter that ridiculous four digit code. How about storing the device on the stick's memory once that device has connected once before?? Makes the app useless!!
Keep it Simple: Make it Like the Remote
Lady.CF on 8/16/2017
The app is a convenient backup when my original firestick remote is out of commission. However, it is a lesson in frustration when using it because it works as intended only 50% of the time. As other reviewers have pointed out, the app's interface is a clumsy trackpad. It would be more convenient if instead of a trackpad, it was a four-way directional functionality with a left arrow, right arrow, up arrow, down arrow, plus a center circle to select. (Just like the actual remote) The current trackpad configuration can be difficult to maneuver, where the lightest touch and flick of the finger to navigate left, right, up, or down, goes past the intended target when you're selecting an option on your tv screen. In addition, the app looses connectivity to the firestick when the tv screen goes through a cycle of screen saver. I have my screen saver set to come on after 15 minutes of inactivity. Each time I attempt to use the app to start rewatching a show or movie that I previously paused, the app does not work. To get it to start working again, I have to unplug the firestick's power source so the firestick can reboot. Then I have to go through setting up this app with the four digit pin configuration, as if I was setting up the app to the firestick for the very first time. Needless to say, this is very annoying, a time-waster, and extremely inconvenient. The app has great potential but it needs more work. Sometimes, the most straightforward and obvious solution is the best solution. By that I mean, the engineers of this app should keep it simple: build the app the way the remote looks and functions. Nothing more, nothing less.
Loganbnesbit on 8/16/2017
Fix it.
Apps always crash
yeseniaposadas on 8/16/2017
I have pretty good wifi but the apps for watching movies always crash or never load.
Cool interface
Jon8675309 on 8/16/2017
Unique design, takes a bit to get use to
B.N. Street on 8/15/2017
I am so happy with Fire TV. It has been much better than expected.
Still having problems
Rjhgynbfhoiu on 8/15/2017
Have had to use this app on both iPad and iPhone. Remote stopped working. Tried several times with support to keep it working. The app has to connect every time you open the app. Which can be several seconds or mins. Stops working in the middle of a show. Can not reconnect. Now it has completely lost the connection between the iPad and iPhone to amazon fire. Totally frustrated with the whole thing. Beginning to think you want us all to have Alexa. Please fix this problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Anthony brooklyn on 8/15/2017
I love it..Thanks. It does everything I want it to do
Vampirebby on 8/15/2017
I love this remote app. It works perfectly, I have no problems connecting the app to my firestick, and I love that I can use a keyboard to type the things I want to search for instead of clicking one letter at a time. That's honestly the whole reason I got the app. It's amazing for what I use the app for. I've had no problems with the app at all.
Keep shutting off what I am watching
Gennessa on 8/15/2017
It works when it wants too
Da person who has a nickname on 8/15/2017
The app would be great if it actually worked but instead it just loads for a minuet then says it cannot connect.
It works!
Martinsixstring on 8/15/2017
I lost my remote, so I use the app. Works fine.
Works great!
T-Dub2001 on 8/15/2017
This has worked great for us so far!

Zzzetkk on 8/14/2017
Remote for fire tv stopped working so this was a backup option. It's definitely handy but every time you leave the app( switch apps or phone locks in sleep mode), the app would have to reconnect with the tv stick which can take inconvenient amount of time.
Doesn't work consistently
Shadeymelodey on 8/14/2017
Doesn't work consistently. You have to leave the app on for it to work and then you can not open other apps on your phone when it is working.
Won't even download
Lacoldfinger on 8/14/2017
What's the deal? I tap the download and it just spins at times other times spins 1 revolution and returns back to the cloud icon. I had the app on my previous iPhone 6 months ago. You should allow the app to be able to import the sound from the firestick so I can use my headphones. A great feature like the roku has.
Crashes a lot
