Harasses you with offers to upgrade
by ChrisStockwell on 2020/04/07 03:13
I can’t get to a show or movie I want to watch without the remote being replaced by a giant upgrade selection page MULTIPLE times with one the course of a minute.
Doesn’t work at all!!!
by Ronin Musashi on 2020/04/06 21:26
Gimme my money back. I can’t control anything with this. The app suggests you go to settings but I can’t do that, so now what. The original tv remote doesn’t work on fire stick so I got the app, no dice. I can’t access anything.
Interface isn’t the best
by Dannydan63 on 2020/04/06 16:45
Every time you close the app you have to reconnect it to your phone, plus there is a annoying delay when choosing or clicking selections on the fire stick.
by Jordan0123456789876543210 on 2020/04/06 01:43
I want a full refund. This app doesn’t work at all!
Waste of money.
by Unicornpony102 on 2020/04/06 00:48
Was tricked into paying for this. Thought it was the actual amazon fire stick app. Very deceiving. Also doesn’t even work because it’s requiring me to go to setting to turn something on however I don’t have a remote to do that hence why I downloaded this app. Tried to click the contact us link for support and of course is the only link that doesn’t work. No info on how to contact the company going to have to go to Apple to try to get my money back. Extremely disappointed.
Too much of a hassle to use.
by Tweet76763 on 2020/04/05 20:37
This remote doesn’t want to connect. As soon as you manage to connect it to the fire stick it begins to lag. I hate that it has to reconnect if you happen to open another app on your phone. By the time I was able to watch what I needed by using it, I just decided to bite the bullet and go get a new fire stick remote. It definitely needs work.
Why do they sell product that does not work?
by her higher tech on 2020/04/05 20:34
This does not work at al Keeps saying to turn Debugging on and it is. Not sure why they are selling this junk. Do not buy. I will get a refund from Apple purchases but why even bother at all.
App is glitchy and doesn’t work as well as the Amazon app
by ECpres19 on 2020/04/05 17:01
This app doesn’t work as well as the Amazon FireTV app and wants you to pay for a subscription to be able to control you firestick from your smartphone. I deleted the app within a couple of hours. I have no idea how this app got rated so highly.
by Unicorn kitty pie on 2020/04/05 03:51
Every time I tried to connect a device got stuck on a screen with no exit button. And it happened over and over again.
WS wonderful
by Me53 on 2020/04/05 03:21
Amen my daughter first told me about the app and downloaded it, it worked wonderfully. Each time we (kids) would misplace the little remote. This app saved us. Then we bought a tv with fire tv For our kitchen and its on a different account. Now this tv account will not come up. Help if you can.
Is this a joke?
by Mr Burns on 2020/04/05 03:03
$10 a month for a remote app? Do you know how many physical remotes I could have lying around the house for convenience- for the annual cost of this?
Want my money back
by cleanunderwhere on 2020/04/05 02:11
Lags tremendously. The casting feature is crap. For some reason changes the photo orientation and no way to fix it.
Can’t use app
by mrooney86 on 2020/04/05 02:02
I downloaded the app because I couldn’t find my remote. Not until after I paid for it, did it tell me that my fire stick’s settings weren’t set up correctly to use my phone as a remote. I can’t change those settings because I don’t have the remote.
Three day free trial
by zzztoppings on 2020/04/05 01:54
Cannot get past debug screen. Open an old fire stick app. It works great. I want to cancel my trial and any future subscriptions.
by JohnnyO74 on 2020/04/05 00:58
Doesn’t work. DO NOT PURCHASE!
by Judge Eli on 2020/04/04 23:45
App cost should be told up front. The value is Not anywhere near the cost.
Doesnt work
by dvdishj on 2020/04/04 16:11
It reads my fire stick but doesn’t work at all...
by James S 1989 on 2020/04/04 12:36
Incredibly slow if it works at all. Ads constantly.
by thisappsucks majorly1 on 2020/04/04 03:23
I downloaded this app so I can watch my shows even if the remote is missing and can’t get past debugging waste of time.
Doesn’t work good
by Rlpriority on 2020/04/03 21:55
This app works when it wants to , work for 30 mins. Then it’ll quit . I also have another firestick remote app the free one that looks like the remote that comes with the stick , I like but it won’t give good service . The other app won’t scroll
Too Much And Not Enough
by Ig@Sokaila on 2020/04/03 20:08
I understand you guys want people to pay for the app but to bring up the ad after EVERY SINGLE click is ridiculous.
Slow Response Time. Can’t Turn On TV. Can’t Change Volume.
by Appleseed 147 on 2020/04/03 01:57
This app works slow. It can’t turn on the TV, and it can’t change the volume. Little use.
by orig six on 2020/04/03 01:09
Doesn’t work. Charges you $5/week. Beware.
by Dusty_bawls44 on 2020/04/02 23:53
Worked amazing the first day. Now whenever I try to navigate through any button the buy screen to purchase it comes up.
Worst app ever
by Tired of this sh** on 2020/04/02 23:47
Some days you can’t even use this app because you touch the screen and all you get is popups. Most frustrating thing ever.
Not worth 15.99
by nikkiarr on 2020/04/02 20:18
First of all, the price in-app said $14.99 lifetime. I was charged $15.99 and received no response back when I emailed about this shady discrepancy. I have to have 2 remote apps because when this one won’t connect initally, stay connected, or even function with the firestick, I have to use the other free one. So, essentially it works just as well as a free version. This one tries to connect to my daughter’s tablet when it can’t find the firestick, so I know everything is fine on my end. The only pro I can think of is the keyboard function works well. I would just deal with a free version or find another physical remote.
Not free at all
by Ryarya1000 on 2020/04/02 04:08
Don’t download expecting it to be free. The minute you try connecting it it pops up a membership option page... and of coarse you can’t fully connect without a membership! Yeah. Uninstalled
App don’t work
by 2425hiaeassee on 2020/04/02 04:03
It’s asking me about debugging which is already set up and after reading others reviews. They have not fixed the problem
Delete subscription

I didn’t mean to purchase this lifetime subscription. The app is not working for me and I want to cancel. How do I cancel my payment?
App doesn’t connect
by Annoyedmominmo8 on 2020/04/01 22:24

It should say there is an obscene weekly fee and
by malimoon1 on 2020/04/01 05:19
And I can’t figure out how to stop them from charging me. I’ve searched the app, I’ve searched I’m so fkn mad. Don’t use this. If you lose your remoye , you won’t even be able to activate it because you need the original remoye to pair the phone. They better not take one penny from me. Don’t use this, it’s way cheaper to just spend the 30 bux and order a new remote.
just make it connect without the ADB enabled
by Carrie&Linda on 2020/04/01 04:25
the whole reason for purchasing this app is because we can't turn on the tv. so asking us to change a setting on the tv is pointless, renders this product useless, and the money we spent on it wasted.
Didn’t work
by Dempls30 on 2020/04/01 03:23
I downloaded the app because I lost my fire stick remote. I was able to connect but couldn’t use anything on this app.
by Cspoonner on 2020/04/01 03:17
Paid the $15 but keeps telling me to pay to use. Sent an email to the developer and no response. Why did I have to pay for something I can only use when it will allow me too??

Clumsy and slow
by Bubba Jazz on 2020/03/29 19:07
I also have a Roku tv device, and the app for Amazon foretv is slow and clumsy. Lots of delay and its annoying. The Riku works fast and easy. Dissapointed that it cost so much and functions so poorly....:/ not worth purchasing, its no good.
Don’t buy this app it doesn’t work!
by etyhka on 2020/03/29 13:42
I can’t believe I paid for an app that doesn’t work. I even used my fire stick control to adjust settings and it still won’t work from my phone. I can’t believe they are able to charge people money for something they know doesn’t work. It’s a complete rip off!!! And should not be available in the App Store.

Upset customer
by A Customer who rates on 2020/03/29 02:17
Good evening. This app works and does everything it says it does during trail basis. So I decided to purchase it. I just purchased your app. It said $14.95 one time unlimited purchase, but I was charged $37.30. Who can I speak to as far as reimbursement for the difference or a complete refund. I will definitely change the stars after this situation is taken care of. Fire Remote 3.3 iOS 13.3.1

Not recommended
by Frikthecookiechild on 2020/03/27 17:57
You can connect the phone, but everything is delayed a few seconds and when you try to go to an app it takes you to something else. I honestly wouldn’t recommend this to anybody.
Doesn’t connect.

by lyfe2liv on 2020/03/27 08:11
The point of me downloading, was because I lost my remote. maybe I missed something, but I just hate the fact that you still have to go in settings with the remote and setup the app, even tho it picks it up through WiFi, uuggghh. Think they should be more clear about the setup.
Doesn’t work!!!

Piece of crap
by furiousin ma on 2020/03/26 04:05
First instructions to get it working is to tell you to go to settings on your fire stick. Which you can’t do without a remote. Can’t believe this! Can’t send a message for refund or to cancel either. Just paid $14.99 dollars plus tax for garbage. Can’t believe this app is available to purchase
Terrible app!!! Stay away!
by Needs improvementtttt on 2020/03/26 03:04
This app doesn’t work! There is no cancellation to subscription either! Please don’t try this app! My remote broke and the app is impossible to move forward without remote initially!

0 stars
by notsohappymummy on 2020/03/25 22:56
I’m giving this app 0 stars because I paid for it and I’m unable to use it. It doesn’t work for my fire stick and I would like a refund please so I can delete this app.
by DinaJ21 on 2020/03/25 22:14
If people are downloading this app, I believe it can be assumed they either lost their remote or it’s no longer working. After you have paid for this app you learn you will need the remote to do some sort of debugging to actually use the app. I will be seeking a reimbursement. I wasted 14.99 on a product I can not use. Terrible app.

We have two fire sticks in the house and I have to keep closing out the app for it to update and to get to my fire stick. It’s slow and it lags tremendously. I thought it would compare to my Roku remote but we have to pay for this trash remote and my roku remote is 100 times better ! HATE IT !
Don’t get you can’t use da buttons
by rockfordcocoa on 2020/03/23 23:18

This app DOES NOT WORK! They make you pay right away and I paid $14.99. It is rude to scam people like that and now I need that money to buy a new remote. That is horrible to do to people and I just want a refund because it is also impossible to contact them. I wonder why.
Don’t get fooled
by WestART Ink. on 2020/03/23 01:52
If you are buying this app because you lost your remote, BEWARE!!!! Without an alternative method to change the settings on your tv (i.e., without a remote), the app WILL NOT WORK. I am working on getting a refund. TIP: AMAZON FIRE TV APP does not require a remote to use; just download the free app and enter the code that appears on your tv and voila! SO GRATEFUL 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
It acts up

Need a refund immediately. developer please respond.
by Me1278piub on 2020/03/22 19:11
I paid for “lifetime” at $14.99 because I had to select something in the app to use it. Nothing is working with the app or connecting. I tried submitting a contact through your website and it gave an error message. Please contact me as soon as possible.
Can’t get past the intro screen
by Swandawgmillionaire on 2020/03/22 15:05
If I can’t get to the main screen with this “remote” to be able to connect then what’s the point. Cancelled subscription and deleted the app. Now I have to find the real remote -____-

by RickRolled420 on 2020/03/22 06:42
The remote took a very long time to connect. And then the remote wouldn’t even work once finally connected. 10/10 do not recommend. Wash your hands after you go to the restroom.

Enabling ADB every time you power on. Can’t use app until then.
by K*¥*F on 2020/03/21 17:00
You must use your regular remote to enable the ADB anytime the power is turned down on. The fact right now I can’t see what I am typing means you won’t see what I am writing. There are good portions I would like to mention but it seems they are hiding true reviews.
by Track man 567744 on 2020/03/21 16:48
I just downloaded the app today and after it successfully connected to my fire stick. There is no way to turn it on. There’s no power button on the remote, so after a quick google search apparently holding the home button will turn it on. This also does not work. I want either a solution or a refund

by DPhan49 on 2020/03/20 10:32

Theft of $15 from Amazon
by rocky_rococo on 2020/03/20 06:20
This remote only works by setting up debugging from the Settings on your Firestick, which cannot be completed with the app remote, only the standard remote, proving this worthless and thievery of $15 from Amazon. When my regular remote worked once again (the original is not reliable, hence the purchase of the app), I set up debugging is the conventional remote, but when I later needed to use the app remote because the regular one wouldn’t work, I was once again prompted to set up debugging, which, of course, I could not do with the app remote. This app is a joke at best and brazen theft at worst. AVOID AT ALL COSTS AND PUT YOUR $15 TOWARD A STREAMING DEVICE THAT WORKS.
I like this app and it works fine for me.
by shernbaby4 on 2020/03/19 06:41
I just wanted to check it out this app to see if it works for my fire stick . And it works great without no problems. Thank u
Impossible to rate!
by purple kizzes on 2020/03/19 06:31
Because I can’t use the freaking app. It asks you to do a basic step like go to settings on your fire tv and enable developers options (debugging). Okay! that’s all good and dandy but scratching my head....somebody please tell me how the hell do you expect to do that simple step, with no freaking REMOTE!!! To the developers...ah, that’s kind of the whole point of getting a temp remote app because we either lost the actual remote, it’s broke or not working. Like y’all can’t be serious! Go to settings and do so and so...but Oh! By the way you don’t have a remote to do so smh! So my question is complete those steps with WHAT? In order to get the app working? You tell me how am I supposed to get to settings on my tv with no remote control please! Cause I’m confused.
Doesn’t work
by Autism father on 2019/12/02 12:31
2nd update: got another response from developer. Still question if they are fluent in English. I downloaded app and was in process of setting up until asked to turn on debugging. At this point I could not choose anything—yes or no—-and so that is where it ended for me. Also.. after reading a few of the reviews further reinforces my decision. How about an app that will work or at least lets you get to the point where it is fully installed so performance can be judged as good or bad—at a decent price—that is what would “make me happy”. Thank you for your time. Update: got a response from developer and obviously this person(s) cannot read. I COULD NOT select anything. Which means that step which “is necessary” effectively halts any forward progress. Spilled tea on my remote and downloaded this app as a work around. First off—paying for this as well as the amount being asked for is ridiculous. Do what I did and buy another entire Firestick on ebay for $18 and be done with it. Second—kept popping up wanting me to turn debugging on my Firestick with no way to select it either way with app. Junk. Stay away.
Refund needed
by PrinceszJasmine on 2019/08/01 20:35
Got this app because I couldn't find my remote. I found it a few minutes after downloading. I had the free trial, & was trying to cancel it so that I won't get charged. I couldn't find where to cancel the trial. Even wanted to reach out in an email for help through the "email us" option in the app, but it wasn't pushable. & I just got charged. I need a refund, especially since I couldn't even find where to cancel. Update: MONTHS LATER, I STiLL CANNOT CANCEL, & I STiLL NEED MY REFUNDS.! I am STiLL being charged continuously! Even though when I did need it, I had selected the option for only one week costing $2.99, I SHOULD NOT have been charged ANYMORE after that wee. So not only am I owed the initial $2.99, I need to be refunded for every time I got charged after that, a total of $39, because it charged me literally EVERY WEEK since then! I need my refund & this subscription canceled as soon as possible, as it should have been MONTHS AGO. Why is it so hard to get a hold of anyone to talk to about this??? I can't review the app itself because I didn't beed it right after I downloaded it....but if you truly don't need this app, DO NOT PAY FOR iT.
Not worth it
by sexypants6 on 2019/06/01 18:17
App is constantly crashing. If I exit the app, or my phone scree times out ,I have to reconnect. Have to keep restarting app multiple times to connect to the right firestick. Can’t find the firestick located in the same room as I am, more often then not, yet always gives me the option to connect to the firestick that is downstairs down the hall. Bought the app to avoid ads, and entirely not worth it. Thought it would help with connection issues but hasn’t helped a bit. Firestick gets perfect connection along with my phone, yet they can’t find eachother 9 times out of 10. Waste of 25 dollars. You are better off going out and buying or ordering a new remote. Major lag, and everytime my app is open and I go to reconnect under “my device” it crashes the app. I have to fully close the app, end it on my phone before I can attempt to find the connection again, which as mentioned above is highly difficult because it takes me many tries before the correct firestick connection shows up.
Impossible to rate!
by purple kizzes on 2020/03/19 06:31
Because I can’t use the freaking app. It asks you to do a basic step like go to settings on your fire tv and enable developers options (debugging). Okay! that’s all good and dandy but scratching my head....somebody please tell me how the hell do you expect to do that simple step, with no freaking REMOTE!!! To the developers...ah, that’s kind of the whole point of getting a temp remote app because we either lost the actual remote, it’s broke or not working. Like y’all can’t be serious! Go to settings and do so and so...but Oh! By the way you don’t have a remote to do so smh! So my question is complete those steps with WHAT? In order to get the app working? You tell me how am I supposed to get to settings on my tv with no remote control please! Cause I’m confused.

Can’t make myself give this app more than one star
by Need id on 2019/07/17 19:21
I’ve had so much trouble with this app and getting it to connect. And when I do actually get it to connect, I can’t ever get it to stay connected for more than 5 minutes. I got this app to replace my broken controller until I was able to get a new one, and the amount of trouble it has given me makes the $30+ seem like nothing. Plus, since it only ever connects when it on the home screen, I have to constantly unplug and replug my fire stick, and in order to even make it so this app will connect to the fire stick at all, you need an actual controller to turn off the ADB debugging thing. When the app actually connects, its a cool thing to have for sure, but it’s not worth the hassle.
Terrible set up of having difficulty with your fire tv
by krdp82717 on 2019/08/26 05:09
I downloaded this app because I was having trouble with the buttons on my remote. A bunch of troubleshooting sites recommended it. I couldn’t connect to my tv at all and it kept telling me to access the settings under my fire tv. Hard to do when you can’t get your remote to work. Tried to cancel my subscription, have to do that under the fire tv as well. Obviously I can’t do that either. And it doesn’t show up as an installed app until after they charge you for it. So basically... don’t waste your time if you’re using it to trouble shoot. You’ll be out at least a one month subscription and no one can assist you.
Don’t be a liar
by Lex71816819 on 2019/09/13 00:44
Ok so it works BUT, after you have used the remote for a couple mins... you will have a pop up add almost trying to force you to buy it after every. Click. On. The. Remote. NOW.... I read a similar review to mine and the developer claimed they would make ads “less intrusive” but they have NOT. I feel like they said that for a better rating but made no improvements. I know the app is free. I get that. But so are hundreds of remote apps.
Can’t even use
by KrisJoy2886 on 2020/02/15 15:28
I downloaded this app because I stupidly rolled my fire stick remote into my bedding before sending it through the wash. As you can imagine, it is no longer functioning. So, I found this and paid the lifetime subscription (as it wouldn’t connect unless I chose a monthly or lifetime subscription) only to find out afterward that you need to change some setting on the fire stick in order for this to work. Which I obvious can’t do. So I check to see if I can somehow get a refund on the app. In the app there’s a tab that says “email us”, but nothing happens when I tap on it. So I’m stuck with this useless subscription app. I’d suggest the Firestick TV app, that DOES work and is free.
Almost unusable
by Loud ads= 👎 on 2019/07/08 08:41
The problem I have with the app isn’t the remote itself. It works fine and does exactly what I need it to do. The problem is that after a certain point of use the ad pops up urging you to pay for the full version every single time you use the remote. Every. Single. Time. If I’m trying to navigate a screen with multiple features then it becomes a chore having to close out the ad just to get to the thing I want to click. I understand that it’s a free app and beggars can’t be choosers but I feel like it’s not too much to ask to have an app you can use regularly.
by 1234SteohKB27$ on 2019/05/14 00:55
I downloaded this app specifically because my daughters misplaced my original fire stick tv remote. And it looked easy enough to use and similar to how the remote works so I decided to purchase the full use for a year or whatever instead of weekly or monthly. That was stupid of me. Then I try to connect it to my Firestick which it wanted to do but I needed to apply the debugging or whatever; allow for it. And I couldn’t do it from the app. I needed my original remote to do it which completely defeats the purpose of why I wanted to download this appin the first place. I would like a full refund effective immediately. This is extremely disappointing.
Don’t even bother
by bruhhSarah. on 2019/04/24 17:17
I preordered this app by mistake when looking for a decent option to replace my fire stick remote. I paid something like $2.99, which isn’t bad in the scheme of things. When the app was finally released, I decided to try it after already having found my misplaced remote, thinking I could use this app with all the fire sticks in my home, like a universal remote. WRONG!!! After having paid the cost for the app, you have to pay to use it monthly?! This is an absolute crock. $2.99 a week? $7.99 a month? The stupidest thing I’ve ever encountered. I can’t connect my devices without a charge to see if the app even works. TL;DR just buy a new fire tv remote.
by 2087173!jhj on 2020/03/02 03:08
Ok, so for starters the app is sorta glitchy and doesn’t run very smooth. It’s also laggy. We have two fire sticks in our house and when I try to switch between the two, it is a hassle. It does work how ever and for the money it was cheaper than buying a whole new fire stick. Couldn’t find just a replacement remote with out buying the fire stick. Only 3 stars on this currently. It has a lot of room for improvement in connectivity and speed. The interface is simple enough and is easy to operate.
Waste of money
by disapp0int3d123456789 on 2019/11/21 14:32
I got the app because my remote hasnt been working. The app hardly ever connects to the fire stick, I have to open and close the app in order for it to work, but that doesnt work all the time. Now I cant use it at all and I already turned on the setting on my fire stick when my remote sort of worked for a few seconds. So now I cant even change that setting because I dont have a remote and thats why I bought this app to be a temporary remote and it doesn't even work. The free ones work way better even with the glitches and keyboard issues. At least they connected every time.
The actual remote
by TLACYBABY on 2019/06/27 18:46
The whole remote does not come up on my phone where the select button should be. I have remove the app and downloaded it again to see if that would fix the issue. So every time if I want to move up or down it does not do it. It only will select what is already highlighted. Also if you have lost your remote to your fire TV and you are trying to use this as a replacement, you will not be able to. There is no way to get to where you need to be to allow debugging to be turned on, because you have no remote to move around to n the fire tv. This is a waist of my time.
Puts your Fire Stick at risk of compromise. Amateur dev team?
by NoMoreFireApp on 2019/05/15 01:08
Requires the fire stick setting for ADB Debugging to be on. Stick setting display includes warning “Warning: This will allow anyone on your network to install applications from untrusted sources. “ I have the stick on my guest network because I already don’t trust it well enough for my home network. Forcing the debugging mode to on is symbolic of developers that are amateurs. Never trust them. Removing this unsafe app now. This app may or may not be a threat to your stick. But the ADB Debugging requirement puts your stick at risk of compromise by anything else on your network. (Think infected guest machines.) just say no.
by NanchiOh on 2019/10/08 22:20
I’m guessing they fixed the ad problem by making this not free? Anyways I installed this because my remote broke, so I was hoping installing this app would solve my problem, but it’s telling to to goto the settings on my tv to enable something on it so that it can connect to my tv... BUT how can I with no remote 🤦🏻‍♀️so now I’m tryna cancel my subscription before I get charged for an app that wasn’t helpful to me, but I’m more sure on how to cancel. I tried clicking on the email button but it does nothing. I goto the FAQ and going an email there, I click it and still nothing. So now I am writing this review, hoping I get a respond.
Not worth the download.
by Anthony Amar on 2019/07/03 04:46
Extremely laggy and unresponsive, doesn’t show any of the channels I have and the “touch screen” control is overkill. What happened to plain old up/down/left/right buttons, it’s almost as if the developers tried to make it overlay complicated. Sometimes the best is the simplest thing. Also absolutely no explanation on why I should pay $25 for the premium version, will it give me the simple controls? I am keeping the app only as a emergency backup in case I ever lose my remote but I’ll probably never use it other then as an emergency.
Impossible and frustrating
by aviatorari on 2019/11/13 06:14
Honestly I only downloaded this app because my son kept hiding my physical remote. I attempted to use the free version while the remote was connected to my device and it didn’t work. I thought maybe I needed to just buy the full version for it to work properly and it kept showing I needed to go to settings on my kindle fire tv. I would try and scroll and it wouldn’t move so therefore I could never get to settings. I still can’t use this remote for my fire tv and had to buy a new physical remote and am out even more money. Wouldn’t recommend
by chiefsfan6319 on 2019/11/01 18:52
This app is total garbage. It keeps (and by keeps popping up, I mean EVERYTIME I click to move the cursor. Click to move to the next box, ad pop, click the x, and move the cursor to the next program box, ad pop, etc. etc.) popping up with the ad to buy a subscription. I already have a subscription for my Fire TV Stick, and this is absolutely no help in avoiding said ad. Also, every time I leave the app to do anything with my phone, I have to reconnect the remote control app to my Fire TV Stick. To be totally honest, if this is the only remote control you have for a Fire TV Stick, go with a competitor.
You Don’t need to pay for the remote!!
by kathyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy on 2019/11/10 23:15
A lot of people end up buying the three day free trail that’s ends up charging you $4 afterwards but if all you’re looking for is a remote app then it’s completely free. However, if you lost your remote and you’re trying to use this app then it won’t work unless the settings on your fire stick has the debugging on. Which the debugging setting is naturally set to “off”.
Terrible app
by jandbhd on 2019/09/07 05:45
I usually don’t write reviews but, this app frustrated me so much, so here I am. The app is terribly laggy. The worst part about it is that after so many clicks it pops up an ad for its paid version. Every single time. If you’re scrolling through Netflix every show you pass you have to close out their ad. Every. Single. Click. Save your self the time and do not use this app. I would much rather pay double what a fire stick remote costs then even considering purchasing this apps premium version. Already deleted from my phone. I’ll be looking elsewhere for now
Subscribe or be harassed??
by Parks&Recreation on 2019/10/16 04:48
It's ok at first but then after every button press it brings up the subscription page to add features and remove ads. I'm fine with the free version and respect your right to show ads for revenue and withhold features but when you make the app almost unusable by bringing up the subscription page every time I scroll to the side to pick a show to watch I start to lose my mind. I hope your app fails and with this kind of annoying business tactics there's no way I'd trust you enough to pay for anything you offer.
Fire stick
by upyuors on 2019/11/02 18:04
I downloaded fire stick remote. Went to fire stick on tv. The fire stick app says “searching for fire tv” Not fire stick. I place my phone near my fire stick, which is connected to my tv, and it will not find my fire stick. I open the help and it tells me to do things on my fire tv. I don’t have a fire tv. This app is useless to me.
Hate it
by betterthan67890 on 2019/11/07 12:44
I contacted these people through email right after I downloaded this app last week, I told them I made a mistake, that I downloaded the wrong app. I noticed my mistake immediately. I emailed them twice to reverse the charges. This was a week ago. My card was charged today. There is no way to contact these people to get my money back. I went on there website. There is no number to call. Now I can’t even send an email to resolve the issue. I’m going to have to file a report. This is crazy. Horrible customer service.
Auto renewing subscription for a remote app?
by Aunty Subscribe on 2019/11/20 03:02
Of course figuring out how to cancel is the trick. Really this kind of predatory pricing should be illegal. I was experiencing problems with my remote and simply wanted to get an alternative quickly. I removed the app immediately due to the pricing model. A new remote runs $17-29. Rather than pay weekly it’s a much better option. I’d imagine the R&D for this simple app does not require a subscription at a single cost of 2.99 it is still over priced. This is why I cut the cord. Won’t go back to that model. Kicker was I never got it to work.
by essielife on 2019/09/29 14:51
The remote works when it wants to and idk why I’m paying for it if it doesn’t work properly it keeps freezing everything I try to touch it to change what I want to watch I have to get out of it and then go back on to and hope it ready to be able to change it, it is there any way yal can fix this it works but it keeps freezing I have to wait at less 2 mins or more to wait until it want to move. Then I’ll change the rate
Connectivity issues and extremely slow
by TheOriginalRandyH on 2019/06/07 16:16
Somedays the app does not find all of my fire sticks and nearly always the usage lags significantly. Stoke sideways, wait,wait,wait then the fire stick reacts. If you don’t wait and try side strokes over and over you will get burned by too many moves on device and miss your target miserably. The app starts with advertising for the pay for remote. If you can’t even get a decent free app to work, why would anyone pay for another version of your app?
Didn’t work. Now what?
by angelakatherine on 2020/02/24 23:09
Downloaded the app and paid $20 and it won’t connect to the fire stick. The “email us” section on the app doesn’t work either. Update!! After the company replied I was able to download the fire stick tv app and BOOM! Better than the replacement remote I purchased. Def worth it.
A complete scam
by Marqui90 on 2020/02/04 04:44
So I download the app and before I can complete setup, I’m told I have to buy the full version of the app. And I should have known from the list of prices to product that this was a scamming app. Once I purchased the full version, the remote still wouldn’t work. When I requested Apple for a refund, I was told I didn’t meet the qualifications to be refunded. Apples site states that the apps designer/owner is the one to offer refunds. But I see that won’t happen either because on an earlier review the company stated that Apple handles the refund. DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP!!!
Don’t download this app
by peypeypw on 2020/01/14 06:30
If you already have a firestick, and you just need a remote the other app works fine. This one attempts to charge you for subscriptions before you have any control of your device. No thank you I’m already paying to watch... just need to pause the tv....
by M4CP2 on 2020/01/05 00:52
I am honestly not sure how well this apps works but after signing up for free trial then weekly I found out it cannot even pair with my fire stick device without settings changes that need to be made with the actual remote to the device and since The entire reason I was setting this app up was because I do not have a functioning remote at the moment this app is useless to me at this time. Also more frustrating is that I cannot seem to be able to cancel the automatic subscription renewal.
I’m not paying $20 a year or $10 a month for a remote app
by Tami76 on 2019/12/26 13:01
I need to pay $$ monthly or yearly to use a remote?!?! That is ridiculous! There is no way I’d pay the monthly fee to use a remote, it’s much cheaper to just buy a new remote! Lol The yearly price I believe is the same it costs for a new remote. I hope nay die loaded because I couldn’t find my remote at the time & remembered when I had my Roku TV I used a great FREE app for my remote when Roku remotes would no longer connect to my tv. I think charging what this developer charges is so ridiculous.
Not easy to use at all
by coleen16 on 2019/09/05 00:29
This app is not the best. It doesn’t wake up my fire tv stick on its own, I have to find creative ways to get it to my home screen. Also, almost every time I try to use it, I hold it in front of my tv with fire stick #2, but it wants to connect to fire stick #3. I have to keep closing and opening the app to get it to realize which fire stick I’m trying to connect to. Right now it can’t seem to figure it out at all. So frustrating.
Run from this app
by gdaddy58 on 2020/02/22 06:10
I downloaded this app because my remote was not working it asked for a subscription I paid $15 for the lifetime subscription it worked 2 days now can’t discover any fire tv’s I have 3 and there is no way to correct or see what the problem is PLEASE DON’T get sucked in to buy this app tried customer support but it won’t send my questions to the company this is a scam app go to Mobil Labs website and try to send a message it will say error in typing send again later check for yourself
by klr0530 on 2019/12/06 14:49
Hello, I downloaded this app tried connecting it to my fire stick tv. Error comes up, NO! Fire Stick Tv Device found and it remains on that screen still trying to search for the fire stick tv device. I seriously advise other consumers not to download this app and pay for subscription. I am deleting this ridiculous app off my iPhone but not until I get a response from the developer who made this crap of an app giving me my REFUND! Awaiting a response patiently. The Discouraged Consumer
Can’t cancel subscription!!!
by mobe1313 on 2019/10/11 16:51
The app will not let me cancel the subscription that I did not purchase! Now it is billing me 6$ a week for nothing! Update!! If you need to cancel subscription go to the apple App Store and go to your profile then your subscriptions then disable from there!!!
Can't find the option in settings to cancel
by 2Bittersweet4u on 2019/04/25 22:04
I've sent an email with no response and there is no option in my settings to cancel auto pay after free trial. Very little info on the app and website. This may be a great app but idk because I can't use it and I want to cancel it. Don't want to pay for something can't use. Maybe I'm old and can't figure it out, but I know the option under settings to cancel auto pay isn't there. I do not want this app after the trial. I can't use. Please help!
by Drouzin on 2019/12/03 16:50
Our son went into the hospital and we were left with no remote and an unhappy three year old. We were told to simply get the app and our phones would be the remote. Well apparently you have to pay a weekly fee after a three day free trial. The problem is that you need a remote in order to make the app work on your phone. I have an unhappy three year old, and unless I can figure out how to take off the automatic pay, I also get to pay $4.99 for a service I never got.
Horrible would not recommend
by MarvisVal on 2019/09/24 23:01
Very horrible could not get to work and stop freezing up , I deleted it off my smart phone that same day but I kept getting charges. You actually have to go to your account settings on iPhone and unsubscribe!! It does not automatically unsubscribe you when you delete the app as it should! Instead it tricks you to thinking you’ve deleted it only to still get charged! Horrible, would never recommended. No stars should be given!
Doesn’t work good
by Rlpriority on 2020/04/03 21:55
This app works when it wants to , work for 30 mins. Then it’ll quit . I also have another firestick remote app the free one that looks like the remote that comes with the stick , I like but it won’t give good service . The other app won’t scroll
by shan-mo on 2020/02/19 00:19
This is not working for me. I am so frustrated, we have an Emerson tv that we got a fire stick for. The remote worked a time or two then it said need new batteries, it worked again but battery message came up within a week. Now the remote is useless. I tried to add this app to control with my iPhone and it also is not working for me. I feel like I am getting scammed and just paid money for a worthless app and have a broken fire stick that is less than 3 months old.
Nope tried ten times changed ip set to fire stick turned on dba or what ever it’s called
by dblbull on 2019/07/02 23:41
Nope tried ten times changed ip set to fire stick turned on dba or what ever it’s called no go every time but the stupid ads work great block the hole screen audio extremely loud so I take back the earlier 4 star. I can control a raspberry pi with this phone but not a fire stick
by julissa028 on 2019/07/10 01:36
I recently got the app and it does not connect to the fire tv at all. I am constantly trying and had purchased the 3 day free trial and it had came with the weekly payment of 4.99 after but since I barely had it for not even a day. There is nowhere to cancel the subscription on for I can’t find anything on settings therefore I feel it’s a scam and they are most likely going to take my money when it doesn’t even work. I want to cancel the subscription and can’t.
WS wonderful
by Me53 on 2020/04/05 03:21
Amen my daughter first told me about the app and downloaded it, it worked wonderfully. Each time we (kids) would misplace the little remote. This app saved us. Then we bought a tv with fire tv For our kitchen and its on a different account. Now this tv account will not come up. Help if you can.
Unclear charges
by urbanveggie on 2020/01/09 16:39
I am putting this in a review since your website won’t send my question, which is, again, frustrating. I finally figured out how to cancel this subscription, but am frustrated that I couldn’t find the information in December when I was charged $4.99 each week. Why wasn’t an email sent to me to confirm this subscription? I didn’t think I had signed up for this! Can I get my money refunded as I have not used this app? Thank you for your help.
Trying to cancel. No way to do it in settings or email developer
by mcm555 on 2019/10/09 01:52
Trying to cancel autorenew. Terms say go to settings yet there is nothing in settings that lets me turn off my subscription. Tried to “contact Us” yet link doesn’t work- although upgrade links and other apps from the developer seem to work. This is a scam. Unless contacting me immediately or turning off my subscription will move forward with Apple to get this off my phone and account
Best app
by marccy01 on 2020/02/29 05:16
I don’t know why people are saying it doesn’t work... Best control so easy to use and saved me a trip to the store lol I haven’t used my fire stick in a while since the actual remote broke 🤦🏻‍♀️ but thanks to this app It’s actually working now 🤗
doesn’t work if you don’t have a working remote
by jandbrndbc on 2019/07/21 16:40
Downloaded this because I lost a remote, with hopes of using this app until the new one came. Doesn’t work because i can’t use the remote to change the tv settings. In order to try and use it I had to agree to a free week and then a charge afterwards. Now I can’t go in and cancel it until the free trial is up and I’ve been charged. So I have to pay to cancel a subscription for something I can’t even use.
