Comments and Ratings for Apple TV Remote

I Love This App (1.1.1)
09/06/2017 20:16:30 4/5 By YTVP
I love how my iPhone is now my Apple TV remote. Apple have really released a great app. I would suggest a few volume controls. On occasion the app might have a response issue but it has been easy for me to use, switching between apps and selecting various pieces of entertainment such as movies and TV shows. I am overall pleased with the Apple TV Remote app.

Would of been great.... (1.1.1)
04/06/2017 15:57:50 3/5 By A-모간
I downloaded this app because I lost my physical appletv remote and though i could use the app in place of that. Only problem is that you need a pre existing remote in order to connect your phone to your appletv 😪

Great! (1.1.1)
02/06/2017 09:50:01 5/5 By Shahudhdb288373
Glad I downloaded despite the poor star rating. Does everything the real remote does and although I was dubious about how easy the trackpad would be to use I was pleasantly surprised.

Hopeless like most Apple Apps (1.1.1)
01/06/2017 13:17:04 1/5 By patrickpictures
My iPhone is on the same Wi-Fi network as my Apple TV. I also have the latest software for my devices and my Apple TV Remote app, but the app still can't find my Apple TV. Why is it not more intuitive to connect two Apple devices? Very frustrating.

Zero (1.1.1)
22/05/2017 13:09:07 1/5 By K18SDK
Doesn't find Apple TV 😂 Well done guys 👍🏼

Love this app!!! (1.1.1)
16/05/2017 17:24:05 5/5 By Dave - Sheffield
Downloaded today and absolutely love it!!! Works totally flawless on my 3rd generation Apple TV and exceeds my expectations. Won't be going back to the little silver remote after this!!!!

Cant see my TV (1.1.1)
12/05/2017 11:39:46 1/5 By theheed
can't see my TV despite being on the same network... unable to use the app

Not working (1.1.1)
07/05/2017 19:20:49 1/5 By breadsauce
IPad and Apple TV over a year old? Won't work. Apple = inbuilt obsolescence. If you want this to work you will have to throw everything out and buy brand new kit practically every 2 years.

Awful (1.1.1)
06/05/2017 08:21:55 1/5 By Alexandros Antoniou
There are no arrows to browse. Just a trackpad which doesn't always work and becomes extremely annoying. I use other applications too that give you the option to choose a mouse/functionality you want. Ridiculous. Typical apple

Works fine (1.1.1)
06/05/2017 08:13:55 4/5 By crazygal12245
does what it needs to. thumbs up.

How stupid (1.1.1)
06/05/2017 07:07:40 1/5 By Nicknicknicknicknacknoo
Lost my Apple TV remote and discovered this app. Saved! But in order to activate you need the Apple TV remote to enter a code into settings on the Apple TV. Doh🤔

Latest version can't see my Apple TV (1.1.1)
05/05/2017 05:04:51 1/5 By Nijrose
Since update, app is now completely useless, will not see my Apple TV at all, despite being logged in on the same network.

Doesn't work (1.1.1)
29/04/2017 14:23:38 1/5 By Villa1874
It's asking me to enter code into Apple TV... how can I do that without a remote.

Doesn't find my Apple TV (1.1.1)
20/04/2017 02:25:27 1/5 By Wob3
My Apple TV is connected to wifi over a homeplug network. The remote app cannot find the Apple TV even though my iPhone is connected to the same wifi as the Apple TV. Exactly the same thing happens with the app on my iPad. Presumably Apple haven't built in homeplug network support for this app so beware if you have the same setup.

Great App but needs volume control (1.1.1)
10/04/2017 13:12:54 4/5 By JDUBYA0_0
Nice app, connects quick on the iPhone and iPad. Functionality same as the Apple TV remote, but missing a volume control. With volume control this a 5 star app

Apple security is rubbish (1.1.1)
10/04/2017 13:02:00 1/5 By tvkeyboard
Why have you made it so difficult to simply buy a film. Steve jobs is turning in his grave!!!! Simple solution to the Apple security issue is to use amazon prime which works like a charm every time :-)

No sleep button and status on TV to check remotely (1.1.1)
08/04/2017 06:06:45 3/5 By Rafishan
Hi Apple Team Can we have some thing like sleep opinion to conform sleep remotely and on or off remote check and timer pls Thanks Rafi

What I was looking for!! (1.1.1)
04/04/2017 07:38:09 4/5 By Cam196213
Simple but effective, the remote app is handy and a nice feature but could really do with a little more controls , (VOLUME CONTROLS)

Good remote app but (1.1.1)
03/04/2017 13:35:30 3/5 By Ultra blazers
Nice and easy app to control your Apple TV. There is still no volume controls after the update.

Excellent (1.1.1)
01/04/2017 12:34:50 4/5 By Lamby1
I can turn on Apple TV which turns on the TV all from my phone. Easy enough. Just missing a volume control.

Has no volume controls? (1.1.1)
01/04/2017 04:01:08 1/5 By dfb1926
Has no volume controls? Really? No I must be mistaken. Nope.

Brilliant (1.1.1)
31/03/2017 12:33:54 5/5 By carthaginian100
Well done I dropped my remote and was told that had to pay £18.00for new one. You guys saved the day works great thanks🍺

Great app but improvements are needed (1.1)
28/03/2017 17:03:23 4/5 By iCloner
I like this great app but it needs improvements such as adding volume control for sound. It's easy to setup up and use it.

Dire Distortion (1.1)
28/03/2017 08:19:20 4/5 By Dire distortion
Great to see this is being supported. Really great to see iPad now supported. I would love to see Apple Watch support. If just for Siri and basic movement.

It works perfectly. (1.1)
27/03/2017 17:31:07 5/5 By Adriano Raffaele
Set up in seconds and works perfectly on my iPhone 7 Plus. What more could you ask for. It's a Siri Remote on your iPhone. Perfection and deserves 5 stars from me. Latest update brings many improvements which only makes this a even more compelling download. Great job.

Can't connect without remote (1.0.2)
25/03/2017 14:55:46 1/5 By AngharadP
I downloaded this app because I lost my remote, but ant use it as it needs pairing with a code, which I can't input because the actual remote is lost. Surely I'm not the only one with this problem?!

Does not work (1.0.2)
21/03/2017 15:05:10 1/5 By ScoringSkins
This only worked the first time I tried it. It has stopped working no matter how many times I have deleted the app and re-installed. Like most Apple products, the polish is no longer there.

Useless if you lost your remote! (1.0.2)
19/03/2017 16:10:00 1/5 By Chenkel
The app ask you to go to settings on Apple TV to pair it. How can you pair the app by going to settings if the reason you have to use the app is because you don't have the original remote control??? Well done Apple! Very smart!

Doesn't work (1.0.2)
18/03/2017 19:46:23 1/5 By Missnma57
I have tried on two different wifi networks but the app still suggests making sure I'm on the same wifi network as my Apple TV. It just can't seem to link phone and ATV. Disappointing.

No longer works with Apple TV 3 (1.0.2)
07/03/2017 07:47:12 1/5 By CaptainMacUK1981
Hmm, this used to work great, however despite being "visible" it will NOT connect to my Apple TV 3 like it used to, I've tried restarting phone, Apple TV and even uninstalling and reinstalling app all to no avail. :(
