Apple TV Remote: Perfect Substitution for the Lost Remote Review

Review Standarts
Our main goal is to provide full and useful app reviews. Our authors strictly follow the rules: minimum 15 hours of the real app usage experience or gameplay, test on main Android and iOS versions, test on phones and tablets.

Apple TV Remote is a utility app for iOS devices by Apple. It’s a full copy of the default Apple TV Remote with some extra features. It provides convenient control of all systems of your TV set. You can download Apple TV Remote on App Store.

Functionality – 5/5

Apple TV Remote app includes all necessary buttons of the real remote, including Menu, Play/Pause, 10-second skip, voice search, and Siri. The touch panel for navigation occupies the rest of the screen. This app also works as a companion screen for choosing episodes and rewinding video. Music playback includes lyrics, order randomizer, and loop commands.

Design – 5/5

Apple TV Remote latest version has a neat dark-grey layout with white buttons, which looks a lot like the actual Remote. The home screen buttons are also authentic, so you don’t have to get used to it. The most frequently used commands are placed close to the bottom of the screen so that you could reach them all with a thumb.

Usability – 5/5

Apple TV Remote iOS App could become a perfect replacement for the basic remote because it provides more features. You can use it not only to press the buttons and navigate the browser, but also to control playback in a more convenient way. For this Apple TV Remote review, we compared access time. The mobile version appeared to be twice faster for typing keywords, and more precise for rewinding video and audio. Selecting episodes on the phone screen doesn’t make any significant difference.

If you use Apple TV to play games, then the app will help you to enable accelerometer, gyroscope, and simplified layout of buttons, turning your iPhone or iPad into an excellent gamepad.

Cross-platform Use – 3/5

You can install the current version of Apple TV Remote only on iPhones and iPads running iOS 9.3.2 or later versions. Unfortunately, there’s still no app for Android OS users, which is a huge omission by Apple. Everyone knows that many Android owners use Apple hardware, so, hopefully, the app is coming.

In-app Purchases

You can get the free Apple TV Remote app on the App Store. You’re not required to pay for anything as all features are available by default. All transactions for paid content and service subscriptions are processed within Apple TV box via your iCloud account.


Apple TV Remote is a perfect substitute for the hardware remote. It provides you with the same list of options with some extras for free. It’s definitely a more convenient solution for games and playback. Unfortunately, Apple TV Remote Android version isn’t presented for some reason, but it is highly demanded.
