It does some things, but isn't a cure all. Here's an example: you can move the mouse with it, but you'll still need to hold your Amazon remote in the other hand bc I can't figure out how to get it to 'click' on something. I bought mouse remote for fire tv already, this is just one, easy to explain example, of why I'm uninstalling this mediocre product. Most every other function doesn't work in the same way. I'm annoyed. lol Cheers.

Hello J O, much appreciated for taking the time to give your insight. I wonder why you still got to hold the remote in the other hand rather than holding the phone with both hands and navigate the mouse in the app, and it does pretty much THINGS than the one-click at a time on the remote. Anyway, mail me at cetusplayhelp@gmail.com to help you out.

The App has a lot of features, however the mouse multi touch does not seem to work. This can lead to a lot of input switching if you are using it as a controller for Android TV, Chromecast devices, etc. The options for different interfaces is very handy (switching between d-pad, mouse, and keyboard) and if improved has great potential.

This remote app started working just fine, and I WAS very happy with it. Then the "OK" button completely stopped working on the dpad. Now I have to use the mouse to navigate my Kodi box which is difficult to control, then bounce back to the dpad to scroll up and down. Its a total headache! I liked the dpad. What's the problem??? I uninstalled and re-installed twice... Still doesn't work. Needless to say I'm NOT happy right now CetusPlay! Update....now it stopped working completely. I deleted it. I'm done with CetusPlay.
