Apple is eradicating its TV distant app from the app retailer
The Apple TV comes with a physical remote control that users can use to control the TV. However, users also had the option of using the remote app developed by Apple as an alternative. It turns out that will no longer be the case as the company has since removed the remote app from the app store.
It may sound like a bad move by Apple, but it should be noted that Apple actually built a remote feature into the Control Center of iOS. Presumably the inclusion of Remote in the Control Center means that an app would be superfluous. If it's already available on iPhones, users don't have to search for the app.
However, it's still hardly a perfect scenario. According to users, the remote functionality in the Control Center seems pale compared to the dedicated app. Some claim it won't work until the remote app is launched first, while others point out that the Control Center version lacks several features compared to the dedicated app.
Of course, ideally you'd use the physical remote control, but it's always nice to have options. If you've already downloaded the app, you might still be able to use it with your Apple TV. However, if you don't, you are out of luck.
