Didnt work with my shared iTunes library or apple TV Not worth the download Hopefully itll actually do something helpful in the future    Useless
Apparently from reading the reviews there are lots of things this app does not do well But if you are mainly interested in controlling iTunes music over your whole house audio system it is great It is much simpler and significantly less expensive than solutions like Sonos Basically any Apple TV box or Airport in your home is selectable from AirPlay within the app as are all music libraries on your HomeSharing network I have 3 TVs and 7 zones on 2 stereo systems Two are outdoors Granted my components were all set up before Remote was even introduced When I looked to integrate everything Home Theater system integrators where bidding many thousands This simple app and a airport express or two and I have total control Plus it has ever acted up when I update a room or component                Absolutely great for controlling whole house stereo
I use this to control my iTunes through Apple TVmy stereo system Now that Apple Music is such an integrated part of iTunes which I love and the little heart button is the simplest way to send feedback to Apple Music itd be great if I could do that from the remote          Add the Apple Music heart button
This app used to be great but since iOS8 it just doesnt work anymore My computer isnt showing up on my phone and ice tried everything Might as well delete it now and it holds no value    This app lost value
Disconnects and wont connect even if deleted and reinstalled A total piece of garbage    Garbage
You know this app has issues from all the other bad reviews Do your job    Fix your bugs
Ive tried for months to get this thing to work consistently and its terrible It will work for a day or two at most and then needs to be reconfigured or AppleTV needs to be rebooted    Sorry app Never connects
Big fail Apple This is a great app but they need to fix the problem of not playing playlists Also it should capable of accessing music to be played on the touch That is go both ways Simplify tried this but is very good    Doesnt play playlists
Wont connect with my ipad or iphone 6 Whats up apple    Bad app
Touchpad will not let you scroll left or right up or down Only the menu button works How about fixing this sometime this year apple    ERROR
Used to be able to access iTunes and my favorite Apple Radio stations Working fine until I updated to latest iTunes on my iMac Apple Music Radio is Terrible by the way Then figured I need to update my iPad to iOS 84 Nope Cannot access or control the recently played stations or switch to any stations Seriously If Apple is going to roll out an update it should warn us of what will get broken in the process How about adding AirPlay to the new Music app or integrating bothIve had a Service ticket on this for months now with no communication from Apple on whenwhether it will get fixed Very disappointed in Apple right now BTW I have no issues accessing my music library Just the iTunes Radio    Broken by Updates
Reasons you might think you can use this appYour fingers slip off the buttons on the Apple TV remoteYou cant navigate very well with only 7 buttons on the Apple TV remoteSearching is like a late 90s nightmare and you could use a keyboardReasons you can actually use this appYou cant find the Apple TV remote because it fell between the couch cushions    Completely and Utterly Useless
Loses connection with the Apple TV constantly Has to be force restarted to connect every time Miserable excuse for an official Apple app    Useless
Basically what everyone else has said When it works it works good however the many times it doesnt makes it almost not worth it If I have to walk over to computer to set up home share 80 of the time I might as well change the song there       Consistent at failing
This used the be the best app on my phone It has since failed to connect 99 of the time saying to use home sharing Which is in fact turned on in both my phone and Apple TV Im deleting it now since it is a waste of space    Stopped working
Put this app on my moms phone so she could control all seven of her speaker zones powered by Airport Express and her new Mac Mini and new time capsule base station The app worked flawlessly for over a year Until the last two or three updates The app continuously says that it cannot find her library or that home sharing is off Or sometimes it will show the library but you cant select it Other times the app works fine for days without issue Ive uninstalled and reinstalled the app a few times Always check the settings and everything is always correct Apple needs to fix this problem Youd think their own apps would work the way theyre supposed to Fix the connection issues    Horrible
Really bad It wont even show my Apple TV Apple is failing due to the weight of its success    5 stars Worthless app Garbage
Ive used this app for years but I just got an iPhone 6 and now it doesnt even open I touch the icon it darkens for a moment and then Nothing Ive deleted the app and redownloaded and its the same thing over and over    Trash
Wont connect using either of the two connection optionshome sharing or direct    wont connect
When this works its great It used to work fine at the house I nanny at but now I cannot connect it to the nanny house or my own Apple TV Home sharing is on ARGH Please fix Apple the tiny remote that comes with Apple TV is bad enough Now I cant use my devices as a remote This is ridiculous    Terrible
Keys just disappear only function button is menu back button Used to work great for a few weeks then just stopped working altogether even after trying erase and redownload Waste of time Wish there actually was an app that worked to replace the apple remote that is so well designed to be lost    Works as well as humpy dumpty after he fell off the wall
Ive used this app on my iTouch and iPhone and the UI for the smaller devices is easy to use and almost flawless Though on the iPad it seems like this app hasnt been updated in a while and the UI is harder to navigate Especially when it comes to iTunes Radio I cant easily find stations like on the smaller devices       Needs refining
This was great but even Ive been trying to reset the router its working good                Idea for using iPhone iPad iPod Touch
Only works about 40 of the time Constantly having to quit and restart it to try and get it to pair with my Apple TV Also we have two Apple TVs and the icons are identical and there seems to be no rhyme or reason to which icon goes to which Apple TV Its the luck of the draw if the one you click on works    Pretty horrible app
I used to be able to control my Apple TV from my iPhone With the remote app Now the app wont find the Apple TV I am fully invested in the Apple ecosystem iPhone time capsule and an Apple TV but it still doesnt work Disappointing    Doesnt work
Fails to stay in the control part of the Apple TV Need to continually shutdown the app and restart    This cant be too hard to fix Come on Apple
Would be great if it would actually connect       Doesnt connect
Recognizes my Apple TV but when I click on the icon nothing happens This occurs 25 times a day Totally frustrating and a waste of time Fix the app or produce a better remote Ps Siri remote looks like complete garbage Get back on the thoughtful design wagon apple    Broken
The app crashes every time it opens with the new update It was much better before please fix    Will not open
This used to be a great apploved controlling my library all over the house But the last few months its gone downhill It doesnt connect as easily I have to restart it or even uninstallreinstall the app and so on and hope it works This used to be a key Apple app to have for their various devicesnow it seems they gave up on it and didnt bother to work out the kinks that exist Hopefully with the new appletv there will be a different version of this Hate it when tech companies just let good products go by the wayside    Used to be great
The instructions for how to use this app do not match the ever changing iTunes UI Apple stop imitating Microsoft Just because they change their UI to hide features and confuse users doesnt mean you shouldThe app is unusable    Instructions dont match UI
Not only is Battlestar Galactica superior to store wars but I have to sit here and listen to people be all hyped up about the new store was movie All Im asking for is for an updated Bell store Galactica movE or TV I am very upset and I dont understand where to unleash my pain Should I lease my pain old Lucas films and Star Wars or should I release my pain on the creators of Battleskar Galactica I think the Lucas films doesnt even make good movies besides Indiana Jones I think that the loss Indiana Jones Indiana Jones wasnt very good because of the aliens in the face melting the first building whats ostream dont get me wrong but I think that it ddnt make sense and it was out of story and God nothing to do with the story and The worst of it all is white tech teacher at my private school isnt letting me format the computer it really makes me mad it really boils my panties when I get home every day I cry and I dont understand why and my history teacher and one thing that I would say is mrs Jenkins would be a lot better if she wasnt so into her husband OK yeah Anyways guys Im just really upset and you can help me by leaving some nice comments on subscribing to my YouTube channel Battleskargalacatluver14356294838129643187367108112603911121003How do you end wone 0v deez          Battle star gallactica should be updated like Star Wars
Worst app Ive ever downloaded    The worst
This app worked well several years ago and then the support went down the drain The app and my iTunes wont even discover each other anymore I would give this app 0 stars if possible but Id stretch it to half a star if that was an option since it used to work even if it was only for a little whileNeedless to say the app is a major disappointment now Yes Ive tried all the recommended fixes No none of them worked for me Im almost jealous of the people who get spotty connectivity because at least theyre getting SOME use out of the app Otherwise its just a waste of memory Fix it please Pretty please    Half a star should be an option
I love this app Its gotten better and better over the years and with the latest iTunes 122 in particular The low ratings break my heart and seem to be due to wifi issues that this app is not the cause of For me iTunes on Mac airport express this app provide the ideal way to enjoy a large music collection throughout the home Dont know what Id do without it                Love it
While convenient the remote app has serious issues that havent been addressed since its introduction I primarily use it to control my Apple TV and it has numerous issues It looses its connection frequently and will often appear to be working while failing to send commands In addition the swiping gestures are unreliable and you often cannot navigate effectively The user experience could be improved by at least allowing for reliable navigation through buttons rather than swiping which generally leads to undesirable results       Needs fundamental improvements
Actually Very useless    Useless
My Apple TV remote was having issues and wasnt working this app saved me I was able to use this app instead of the remote and it works perfectly It does what it needs so I cant complain                Does what I need
It does not work ever I think this app needs a major overhaul I expect more out of Apple If I could give this app 0 stars I would    Horrible app
The app has stopped working and no update for months    Stopped working
Hard to believe this is an Apple product    Constant Difficulty
Only use this if your apple remote battery is dead and you dont Have one on hand this app is not very good at all very hit or miss in terms on functionality Its lag fest    This app is really crap
Connected easily then nothing    Doesnt work
Drops connection repeatedly have to close iTunes relaunch and renter codegot App today and have reconnected at least 5 times so far    Poor App
I have loved this App but now I cannot navigate up down left or right to get around Apple TV be it one of my many iTunes Movies TV shows or even Netflix Please fix the App so that the gesture control finger swiping actually produces a corresponding result on my TV and Ill gladly provide a 5 Star Rating However as it stands now my kids have lost the Apple Remotes and my Apple TV Remotes on my iPhone and iPad dont work do now Im going to have to watch a Blu Ray or turn on ComcastPlease Help    Broke Remote
I have been using this app for years without any problems but it just inexplicably stopped working recently Nothing about my iPad computer or home network has changed yet this app refuses to connect to iTunes anymore    Doesnt work anymore
The app helps you type searches faster Works great Not sure what other customers were expecting and why there are so many bad reviews                Works great
Needs work    Glitchy
This app no longer works when trying to connect to Apple TV I cant connect my 5s 5 or 6 Try fixing that and maybe the app can get a 5 star    Wow
Tried to pair on multiple iOS devices with Apple TV to no avail Dont waste your time    Does not work
