'Add volume control already, if the Apple remote that comes with Apple TV can control it, WHY CAN’T THE APP?'

'Works great'

'So far so good. Downloaded this app because my 2 year old keeps misplacing the Apple TV remote. We were able to set it up on
multiple phones so hopefully it continues to work without error.'

'Use it like a phone not a remote.'

'Try swiping (like you would looking through photos) instead of sliding like with the the Apple TB remote. Sure you have to swipe
a lot to move one icon over but it works great that way.'

'Remote for the watch?'

'I love the Apple TV remote app. It works much better than the Apple remote which came with the Apple TV but it would even be
better if you made it for the Apple Watch!!'

'Works Good!'

'This is a good app if you lost the remote I recommend you to use it if you lost the control because if you use the other control
the app on your phone won’t let you use it. But it slid still good overall!'

'Working perfectly so far'

'Not to sound like a conspiracy theorist but I kinda wonder if all these 1 star ratings are bots for Apple trying to make this app
look bad so some people don’t bother and instead choose to spend the $60 on a new remote.'

'I’m sorry but this app is trash. Yes it is quite useful when every once and a while I lose my Apple TV remote, but half the
time it says the TVs “offline” so I can’t connect to it. On top of that I have to X out and reopen the app several times
when I’m using it because it stops respondin

control using this app with a code when automatically connecting to the nearby Apple TV without bluetooth also(This is called
alternate device connectivity[ADC])'

'Ain’t half bad!'

'I have a question, if you don’t have a remote for the Apple TV, (though I have three Apple TV’s and the remotes to them, and
a newer Apple TV.) then why type a code??? If you link it to the tv, you shouldn’t have to do some wacko code to link. Though
overall, it is dang good.'

'This works better than the remote that comes with the Apple TV and at least you can get the volume to work. But it’s very

dysfunctional. Deleted and reinstalled... still doesn’t swipe. It does connect to my Apple TV. Very frustrating.'
