The Amazon Fire TV Remote app has been released for the iPhone and iPad. The app is virtually identical to the Android version released in conjunction with the Fire TV Stick launch in November. It is compatible with both the Fire TV and Fire TV Stick, and allows you to perform all the functionality of a voice remote. Additionally, it serves as an alternative to the onscreen keyboard, letting you enter text much quickly than with the physical remote controls.
odd, it’s not coming up in the app store.. at least not on my phone…
Not showing up in IOS App Store yet.
Use the link on the page. You can’t search it but it is out and works great!

You can search. Try a voice search and you will see a search box come up. Then pick the keyboard icon. You can search.
Funny. I downloaded the app, fired it up and only my fire TV stick registers. My two rooted Fire TV boxes don’t appear to show. I wonder if it’s because they are rooted or because of the firmware I’m using?
Support for the Remote App was added in the 18.104.22.168 Fire TV update, so you have to be on that version or higher for the app to work.
If I upgrade to that version will the root be lost?
my rooted fire tv won’t show up either. Starting to believe it only works with updated fire tvs.
The app is currently only available in the US App Store, the UK has to wait once again :P
Easy to make a U.S. App Store account.
Both of my rooted Fire TVs show up in the app. I haven’t tried controlling the FTVs yet, but works great with my FTV Stick.
UPDATE: I successfully controlled my Fire TVs with the new IOS remote app. For reference, I am running the latest pre-rooted firmware and have an iPhone 6.
Which version is that?
I am running the “bueller-22.214.171.124_514013920-rooted+fixed” version of the firmware. I am also running the RBox Fire TV Mods (RboxFireTvMods_1.3.apk) — not sure if that affects the ability to use the Remote App.
My iPhone 6 with pre-rooted FTV 126.96.36.199_user_514013920 couldn’t find the FTV in the app.
Not available in German iTunes Store.
Does the app work in xbmc too?
Nice, will have to update my box and give it a crack then :)
Guess I’m going to be forced to install the latest rbox preroot fw.
Thanks for the heads up
Both sticks appear but not the rooted TV. I’m on 51.1.1 – 220
For which rooted firmware versions is the app working?
I have the “bueller-188.8.131.52_514013920-rooted+fixed.zip” firmware on both my Fire TV boxes, and the Remote App is working great from my iPhone 6. I am also running the RboxFireTvMods_1.3.apk HDXposed module — not sure if that affects the Remote App.
does anyone have a working d/link for this app for IOS?
