Steve Jobs would be so mad
Apple TV is problematic... but the remote app is a bright spot.
So I got the app to use when I’m away from my MacBook but it never allowed me to connect it was difficult and a lot of research later led me no where. Disappointed and unsatisfied to be honest to say the least, I just wanted to use my phone as the remote for my music.
I love the better reliability for remote. I used to use it all the time years ago and it used to break connection, but now it’s connection is stronger than ever.
There’s a bug that won’t allow me to hold down a song/track and allow me to select play next or play later. Please fix.
It often takes a while to connect and is very slow and slightly delayed by a few seconds.
The keyboard won’t pop up every time it’s needed. If it does, you can’t get back to it once again from the selection mode (up, down, menu, etc). So you have to close it all the way then open the controller app back up. It’s better than the little garbage controller that comes with the Apple TV, I guess. I wish this app would improve. It would make life much better. In a world where it worked like it’s supposed to., tv life is good.
So good for sitting on the patio and controlling the song playing decide that’s inside! We’ve loved this app for YEARS and STILL DO!
We’ve come to rely on this app in lockdown. Only two bugs come to mind. iPhone Only: if we rate a song then the only way to rate another is to quit the app and restart. iPad only lots of artwork is missing unfortunately. It’s there in iTunes. I’ve found a labor-intensive workaround but it isn’t permanent. We’ve tried removing and reinstalling the apps but that doesn’t fix anything. That aside, it is largely reliable. I do have two requests: On iOS: allow split screen view. On iOS and iPadOS: be to either add more playlist management functionality and/or to remove the easy ability to delete playlists. We have lots of them (normal and smart) that are too easy to accidentally delete. On iTunes there’s an “are you sure” dialogue. Since there’s no undoing such deletion (I wish!), then this feels reckless.
a classic app that is as useful as ever with all my homepods, just play music from my computer and send it all around — and control it from any device!
