S7 edge user Lost my firestick remote… downloaded a few apps to control my firestick… all difficult to use… had to keep my eye on my phone while controlling… came across this remote and it was like nothing I've encountered in a remote before… very convenient… I'd go so far as to say cool even… now if it had a widget and could stay connected when I leave the app it'd get five stars… still cool remote
Better than the remote that comes with the fire stick...but Only because this gives you voice access to amazon prime, Netflix, etc... and access to Alexa. You do not need to buy Amazon Fire TV. Buy the cheaper Amazon Fire TV stick and download this app for free... why spend $100 on an Amazon Fire TV when you can have every single feature available by downloading this app and using it to control your, much cheaper, fire stick... Just sayin...
Awful Really can't stand the stupid blank square at the top to replicate the stupid circle on the physical remote. Both are overly sensitive and have you clicking left or right accidentally when attempting to click up or down. And the phone version has the added frustration of relying on a swipe which makes it even slower. Also disconnects all the time and has trouble reconnecting. Roku is MUCH better.
So far so good!! I thought I had lost my remote, well l read some of the reviews on the Fire stick remote app and was leery about trying it. At this point it was try it or turn it off (TV) soooooo I downloaded it and been using it every since. For a free app, I really wouldn't of complained anyway BUTTT this app has been great!! I'm definitely a happy Amazon customer. Oh and btw I found my actual remote and I'm STILL using the app lol
Like it...but Overall, the app is good for a remote replacement. One thing that would make it great is if there was a visual for the navigation wheel ( up, down, left, right, select). Not having this, makes the app a bit frustrating to use at times. Swiping is not my first choice for this particular application.
easy to use...when it works Disconnects during use. Freezes. Lags. I've come to expect crappy quality from amazon. The fire device often doesn't have the bandwidth to stream amazon prime videos, but will play Netflix fine. I've had 2 amazon fire stick remotes die within weeks. I'm stuck using this stupid app and constantly frustrated trying to figure out if the problems I'm having are with the app or the device.
