Is it just me or is it really frustrating that when you press the rewind or fast forward button on the app Remote it skips the whole chapter not start rewind or fast forward? Argh...

Thinking about it, I wonder if it’s not so much of a limitation with the app but with using the iOS controls - iOS doesn’t have dedicated chapter skip buttons

You must be talking about the K mobile app since Second Screen does not run on an iPhone.

With regard to the mobile app, there are buttons at the bottom of the screen for Play/Pause, Stop, Chapter Advance and Chapter Back.

if you want to Rewind or FF while a movie is playing, just place a finger on the glide pad and move to left (Rewind) or right (FF). Below is a link to using Gesture Control for the mobile app:

You can also press and hold the >> or << buttons to get to FF or Rewind. Once you're fast-forwarding or rewinding, taps on those buttons will change the FF/REW speed.

We've struggled with this UI, honestly. It's related to displaying the transport controls on the lock screen, in which situation we have very little control over the UI. Apple has, for whatever reason, chosen to use the icons that have traditionally meant FF or REW for chapter skipping, so for consistency with the lock screen, we have followed that styling.

Cheers Mike. Guessed as much. Apple is great but sometimes too rigid for its own good particularly when they go against existing “standards” for no obvious reason or benefit
