Very Good Replacement remote. I can use this app to control a 1st gen firestick from my pixel XL phone & it works very well. Play, pause, back, mouse pad & home buttons all work fine. When searching, the keyboard button is much quicker on this than typing using f/stick remote. Only downside is when trying to scroll down a long list, you must scroll very slowly. This is the only issue that prevents a 5th star. Hopefully a future update will resolve this.
The voice option is cool... But I could read war and peace in the time this takes to reconnect to my Fire stick sometimes. As well, there is no functionality with Swype... It wouldn't be that hard. Take the cumulative String entered by Swype and break it down to a character array and feed the letters in using a loop! If you give me the source code for this, I could make VAST improvements!
I forgot my remote the other night and this app was a lifesaver. I love it and that it is free! Would like to see a setting to adjust the sensitivity of clicking. Sometimes it clicks when Im just swiping. I know it would need to connect to the tv most likely but a option for tv volume (on the remote itself)would be nice to. Very nice if you forget or even lose or break remote!
Reasonably good app. Easy to sync with device and account. Slightly more functionality than the remote but I feel it could be improved with a search button. Currently (unless there's a better way I'm not aware of) you have to hit the home button, swipe to the search, swipe down to begin typing and then you can search for a show. It would be better if there was a magnifying glass icon on the app that immediately allowed you enter your search. Even better if you can search for things on the app without interrupting what you're watching. Could also be improved with an option to use directional keys rather than swiping. Very much enjoying the Fire Stick in general, however. Much better than messing around with a laptop and hdmi cable.
I would give more stars if the remote could somehow work with Showbox. It doesn't have a way to use the drop down in the top left hand corner so i can pick a way to watch either movies or tv shows on showbox
Constant connection issues. It almost never pairs to device, and when it does it loses connection within 30 seconds. It's annoying when your selecting an episode only for the app to lose connection and it keeps scrolling on screen.
