Iv always hated the apple remote since they included that horrid touch pad. I’m an apple sheep, but the remote was even too much for me. Various tiles I’ve thrown that damn thing across the room in frustration. Since discovering the built in remote app, it’s perfect. Really, it’s perfect. I’m not accidentally pressing the wrong button, or accidentally swiping. The responsiveness is spot on, and since using it iv not had any problems using my Apple TV. My only suggestion would be to allow to us to turn on and off the TV using the app, and adjusting our TV volume, just like the physical remote.
