    There is only one I know of and you need your ATV to be jail broken to run it. If you are that heavily invested in Apple, might want to rethink your decision. I had the S4 and ultimately went back to the iPhone.

    You can use the IR blaster to control your Apple TV. I use mine through the watch on app and it works perfectly with my apple TV.

    There is no remote for itunes app that actually works to control the appleTV with an android phone. The person who said use google...none of those apps work. Apple has that on lock down. The IR blaster work around the poster above mentioned may work, but I have not personally tried it.

    The IR blaster should work. I use an app called Smart Remote ($5) on my HTC One to control my AppleTV and other devices.

    You won't be able to fill in text via your phone's keyboard like the iOS app allows.
