  1. Ra UFX-avatar

    Excelent app! I managed to save my tv with it. I installed an app called Button Mapper so i could remap some buttons of my original remote. That app made my tv unusable. No buttons on either my remote or my tv were working anymore. I managed through some miracle to install centus in my tv and uninstalled the app through centus on my phone. Will buy the full version just as a thank you!

  2. Magnifique by Mia-avatar

    apk I think this app is pretty awsome. People just dont understand how to set it up. When you install this on your tv, the other app needs to be installed on your phone. Maybe the creators need to find a way to have everything in one app, that might be more user friendly.

  3. Jedson-avatar

    cetusplay tv remote server receiver download Tried using with my android TV box, all of the buttons except the volume buttons don't work, contacted support for help and haven't recieved any response.

  4. Christopher Morgan-avatar

    Christopher Morgan


    descargar Good as the app works but; To make it better add an autostart feature so when someone reboots their android box or TV it auto restarts the app on OS load.

  5. Sheetal Tiwari-avatar

    cetusplay tv remote receiver apk App starts with a screen that says it is the est ever remote controller and asks for permissions one by one..even after allowing all the accesses the same "best ever remote" screen stays with no option to do anything.. same behaviour o tv app

  6. Rohan Jain-avatar

    baixar Very good app the best one which i can found but the only problem is with touchpad and mouse . They both wont work proprely ... Please fix the issue..

  7. Pritam Pawade-avatar

    apk download Great app but you didn't mentioned instructions correctly, user need to check your developer account and install appropriate app on phone. Suggestion: Show QR code on tv screen it's pretty simple way to direct user to correct app

  8. Mubin Shikalgar-avatar

    Mubin Shikalgar


    Best remote.....but need to improve performance when using mouse....

  9. Demi Doyle-avatar

    It never works it's always frozen I tap remote control but it does nothing do not install it is a boring app that does nothing

  10. Pinkyj B-avatar

    doesn't do anything but show exact same screen that's on the tv on the app like an advertisement it's crazy please fix if your going to advertise this on android boxes and firestick

  11. Anand Rai-avatar

    It's useless and total waste of time. None of the installed apps are supported by FireTV. Wasted my purchase and time.

  12. Mynor De Leon-avatar

    Great app, it does a superb job with my Pixel to 3 different gen of firesticks. I use it every day at all times to connect to different firesticks around the house. From time to time one or both may fall off the wifi connection. And I may need to reconnect. I tell my fam & friends this is the one to use in a fire stick It allows me to send links to the firestick. Amazing funcionality. A full auto start with out having to add the amzn user info would be a nice added function. Hope it lives and co

  13. Roku Cam-avatar

    First I would like to advise the developers to add "TV version: Download this to your TV" (or something similar) to your title/description to cut down the confusion and improve your rating. I have a Toshiba Amazon Fire TV Edition and all the remotes in this app work except for the mouse function, which is the only reason I got this app in the first place. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

  14. Paul Jones-avatar

    Installed on my phone and does nothing. Loads a landscape full screen pic on the device that looks like an advert for the app. No idea what its meant to do or how to get it on my fire stick.

  15. Kritikal Azz-avatar

    If you have issues simply click on the ? mark top right of screen then it takes you to, "No devices found" then click on appropriate device list below & follow instructions that's it. They need to be more transparent about following instructions on how to configure android device to pair with android phone, so this was my last effort before I was going to give up & it worked so I hope this helps in some way.

  16. Prashant Rana-avatar

    Wrost mouse arrow stucks at one place no responce when using other type if remote controls even i connected it properly with my phone

  17. Redemption Church-avatar

    Works as Discribed lt nice that it gives you multiple types of TV Controllers & also a gaming pad.

  18. It's ME Again-avatar

    I'm beyond "PISSED OFF" is a EPIC UNDERSTATEMENT!! The "Clean Master Feature" WIPED OUT 2.6 GIGS of APK'S I had stored on my Nvid. Shield. My Wife accidentally hit C.M. button in Menu, which in turn TOTALLY Wiped My stored (ORIG. APK FILES.) DO NOT EVER Use this on the "NVIDIA SHIELD" until (Clean Master has Controllable Settings.) Currently it just WIPES EVERYTHING OUT! This WAS my favorite app on FIRESTICK. BUT I won't Ever use on my NVIDIA SHIELD AGAIN! UNINSTALLED This 'NOW' PURE 💩 APP! 😡

  19. Nazim Shaikh-avatar

    When I used to control my smart tv it just disconnects in a minute while google's remote control doesn't do that

  21. Philippe Abraham-avatar

    Philippe Abraham


    Mouse mode can't click what I need. Also no option to copy or paste if any selected

  22. Bob Guest-avatar

    As far as I can tell this only functions on the Android TV box. Need a separate app for the phone which doesn't seem to exist here. Do yourself a favour and avoid this app at all costs.

  23. A Google user-avatar

    For firestick it never work as per expectations. It looks like working only some time. After selecting device on mobile it installs again and again tv version app on firestick and even then not working. Puchasing adfree version for over Rs.520 is total waste of money for now.

  27. Benard Korir-avatar

    This app is a scam, after some time it says it is a trial version after I have spent money on Cetus Play remote $ 5.9 If they work together, why do I have to purchase both premiums separately? Why not indicate a premium version in the PlayStore?

  28. kirk watstien-avatar
