- Read this!

So here is the thing! So I got the app. And it was.......Awesome! I always thought it was cool using a iPad and it was so cool! Get the app! The only way is that to unlock it, is too... I meant that the way to unlock it is you have to there a device with a red and green. Press the red button. For sure, it will work, so people say it’s a 1 Star, but when try this, mind blown? Yes mind blown!get the app, please! But there well, you know you have a volume on your iPad. Press it, and there is a %25 on mine, and keeps leveling up! And that’s the only problem. But still get it. Enjoy! From: Anna

- Disappointed

I was convinced to purchase pro because I thought it would be an awesome upgrade. What I didn’t know is that the volume wouldn’t work even though my roku supports it. Also, if my family uses it, they have to purchase the upgrades themselves, which I can almost understand but it was not clear before the purchase. Further,if I want it on my iPad, I have to purchase the upgrades again, this I can not understand since it is my own device and I have already paid for the upgrades. By far the most disappointing aspect is the difficulty in finding away to contact support. Perhaps some of my issues are fixable however the only way I could find to contact support was through a review. No contact info on the App Store and if you click on app support you get a website with only basic information and still no way to contact the developer. Hopefully we can all get some support and information moving forward.

- This is so so so so cool!!

Wow wow wow wow this is such I good app and it’s perfect cuase I lose things aloud like all the time and now I’ll have a app on my iPad so I can control it and it’s such a good app it even has I keyboard and it’s such a good app but I don’t no why it has bad reviews cause it’s like the greatest app ever!! So yeah byeeeee! Hey to the people who made he app thank you for making this ive had no problems so far but I just got it hahaha 😂 so yeah well anyway like I said before thank you so much for this app I’m sorry for the bad reviews those people are crazy so think you and byeeeeeee!!!

- Before you download....

Please do not download this app. It is a third party app and charges $1.99 simply to use the volume feature. And it doesn’t end there. It charges also to search the channels via the app page. I was confused. Please download the “Roku” app. I downloaded this one bc it was the first one in the lost. I always trusted the first app on the list when I search for an app. Not anymore. This third party is listed first but it is not the “real” app. I am not sure why Roku allowed this to be but it is wrong. The app does nothing until you purchase the features to use. This is a total rip off. We have to stand up to this kind of ridiculous greediness. Thank God my husband calmed me down and helped me realize that I did not download the same app he downloaded. Totally FREE and there are GREAT FEATURES ON IT.

- Roku phone remote

I lost my remote and I tore my whole house apart looking for it and then someone told me about this app and I got it. Not saying I’m thankful I lost my remote, but I’m so glad I found this app because it’s so convenient and easy. I’m always on my phone when I’m in my room, so I can just turn on the tv just like that. The remote on the app is also really easy to control and figure out. The only thing that got me was they don’t give you the option to control the volume, but you can buy it for 1.99.

- Scam app

I downloaded this app and it was neat, except you have to pay for volume control! Volume control worked for one day... sort of. When you take the phone out of the room the volume goes back to zero. I tried adjusting all sorts of settings, refresh the app, ect. Nothing worked. Now (the day after purchasing the volume control) it won’t adjust plume at ALL, it just stays on zero. Tried to get app support but there is no way to contact the company.

- Why do I have to pay to change the volume

One of the main features of a remote is changing the volume. My Roku remote recently broke so I had to download this app and I discovered that many options that came with the remote I got with the TV are are locked behind a pay wall in this app. It is ridiculous to me that a app as simple as a remote substitute requires you to pay actual money to change the volume! I have paid Roku enough money by buying the smart TV I don't want to have to pay them more money to change the volume on my channel. As we become more and more attached to the digital world we have to stand up to anti-consumer things like this! I wish I could uninstall this app but I am forced to use it

- Better than the other substitute remotes!!

Love this app which I stated using for a substitute when my Roku tv remote broke. Now it's just a habit and it's just easier to locate your phone/tablet over searching for a lost remote! Works better than other apps I have tried which lag and have ads. The only con is that sometimes I have to close out of the app and go back into it so that my tv registers the commands. Other than that, definitely recommend!

- It works!

I got this app after I accidentally put my remote in the wash with all my throw blankets from the couch. It really works! I bought the upgraded version for $4 because the free one was kind of limited and $4 isn’t much to pay for a functional remote. The only problem I have is that I can’t turn my tv on or off with it, I have to use the button on the back of the tv for that. Besides that, it’s perfect! Definitely worth it.

- Need volume button

I know this may be a petty request, but, my iPad case covers my volume key because it is an after market case. Anyhow it would be groovy to have a button on the remote screen. Also having the select button in the middle of the arrows can be a bit cumbersome when I’m using my phone. I had a glitch today that I had to stop using my phone and switch to my iPad. It wouldn’t let me change the volume. Weird huh? All in all a useful app. Thank you!

- Easy and Siple

Me and my brother tried finding my roku Remote, and we could not find it, so I looked up a roku app and saw this app at the top. So I bought the app and me and my brother didn’t know what to do. But then my brother pointed it at the TV and it worked! This is week 5 of me using this app! This app works amazing! People who have roku and have lost there remote should use this app! And that’s my story! Thank you so much for making this app!

- Kid lost our remote

Our Roku remote is gone. We looked under couches, beds, in cabinets, in child’s messy bedroom, even in the freezer (hoping I didn’t have Alzheimer’s). The Roku App remote is a lot cheaper than a new remote and every bit as good, in fact, better, because it has an on/off power button, which the other remote didn’t have. We had another remote for that, which we don’t need, anymore. Thank you for your ingenuity.

- Better than my actual roku remote

Works better than the actual remote I kid you not, my roku remote even brand new has always been pretty crappy and had a major delay then I hen the battery goes the response time I so slow that it scrolls 10x after I stop pressing buttons and doesn’t respond until 30 seconds later so the fact that this app works almost instantly as a real remote would .... I LOVE IT

- Read my review, it's honest, and I understand

The main thing I like is that I can use it on iOS 8. I use an old ipad2 as a media / comicbooks / remote. Many app developers go with Apple's planned obsolescence and make their apps require the newest iOS. These guys get it, the app performs perfect as is. I love this. Maybe the world isn't all businesses trying to exploit consumers. I paid for premium, and it was worth it. Thank you, developers.

- It Works But...

The remote works fine, just as it’s supposed to but it has this one extremely annoying quality. Every time I use the app (ex: to pause a movie/tv show) and then exit off of the app it turns my volume off. Literally every single time. It’s extremely annoying and I don’t know why it’s happening. Tried to reach out to support but there’s literally no way of contacting them. Pausing a movie or tv show isn’t worth having to turn my volume back on 100 times a day because of this app. I’ll be uninstalling this and just using the remote I have and pressing the back button if I have to walk away.

- Pro Purchase Does Nothing

I’m really not sure how to rate this app. On the one hand, I like the interface, and it does work with my Ultra Roku. However, expecting that the Volume Controls and the Power Button would work with the Pro features, I paid the nearly $4 for it, but I see no visible differences in the interface. No power button. The on-screen message tells me that my Ipad volume hardware buttons will control the volume - they don’t. So, I have basic functionality even after having paid for the Pro upgrade. Update: There is a power button and it will turn the unit off, but not back on. I get the message that “Cannot connect.” So, I still have to use the physical remote, which kind of defeats the purpose. The unit responds to the Ipad hardware Volume buttons only in that the little speakers with the relevant “+” or “-“ symbols appear, but it has no effect on the TV or the Roku Ultra device.

- Roku for iPad

I was glad to find this app amongst the numerous others with Roku in its title; my Roku remote control apparatus has stopped working entirely. I am able to crawl in a frustratingly slow manner using this app to access Netflix and PBS, but only barely as the app stops and completely freezes when I'm attempting to choose a show or film. The app is terribly glitchy. At least there is some sort of alternative to the Roku's completely limp apparatus. And yes, I've tried replacing the batteries.

- The volume does work if u purchase it!

Love this app! It does work! All u have to do is use your buttons on the side of your tablet/phone to change volume on your roku tv! At first I didn’t think it did either I couldn’t figure it out for nothing till my 6 year old little girl was playing around on it! She was all excited lol

- Really good!!! One problem...

The only problem is is turning down the volume, I checked on my phone and iPad, and it works perfectly for turning the volume up but needs a bug fix for turning the volume down! It seems to work for about one to three clicks then just dont work until I turn up the volume really loud and then back down (which even then barely works) That’s the only bad part! Actually works

- Why?

I purchased the app and had trouble using it. I assumed because the reviews were so great I should purchase the application. WRONG! I cannot remember being so frustrated trying to use an application. I called someone that I knew had used the application and still was very frustrated. I gave up and deleted the application. To add insult to this situation Apple would not refund my money. I downloaded the free app from Roku and it worked like a charm. The question that comes to mind is why in the world would anyone pay for this application? Another regret I have is I cannot rate this application as much worse than a one star.

- I like it! But here are some thoughts...

Great app, performs well, there never seems to be any issue connecting to my Roku 3600x, and the latency on a Wireless N network is minimal at best. Exception: the typing. The lag between typing and the text appearing on screen is significant. Given that there’s little to no lag using other controls, maybe we’ll see a fix in an upcoming patch? Things I’d like to see: -Haptic feedback when pressing buttons -Moveable channels tiles, so I can sort my channels by my most-used. -Volume-level meter would be helpful, so I’m not eternally holding down the volume button -Show which Roku I’m connected to on the Remote tab/screen. We only own one Roku right now, but we will own another soon, so that could cause some issues.

- Just get the free app - save your money

The free app worked great, but I only gave a 3 star rating because of the paid features I was was enticed into buying. I should have saved my money. When I choose channels, sure I see all my Roku apps, but as soon as I choose one of my apps, I’m back to the free feature that has the arrows to navigate. At that point you need to be able to see your screen because it’s not on the app. Also, my volume control in the app doesn’t work.

- Better than replacing AAA batteries

I love that it can type from my iPad and quickly move between apps and home. The only reason I give it three stars is the volume control is not dependable. My iPad manual volume is broken and the only way to change volume is my iPhone. You cannot control the volume with touch screen controls. Even with manual volume down is slower than volume up.

- Sok

The fact they want you to pay ( too much in my view- you’re close to just buying another clicker) for the obvious convenience of selecting channels as opposed to the one step navigation that’s in the “base” version. Plus, I can’t turn on my tv or use volume- an extra?! Haven’t bothered to investigate. If you’ve lost your clicker ( or the dog ate Them as in my case!), and you can turn on your tv , it does the basic job of navigating thru up/down, l/r and select just fine.

- Love it

My remote was lost. I bought a new one and hated it it was slow and not WiFi. I found the one I lost and was happy until it died. As told by the customer service to download it on my phone but I have my iPad at my side when I am in my chair watching tv. I downloaded it and it is as fast as the original one. Very handy and not easily lost

- Saved our Day

The store manager at 69th ave and Bell Daniel Homan is awesome. We were have issues with our warranty replacing our couch because that couch was no longer being made. He stepped in and found us a similar replacement couch and is having it delivered Free of charge. Thank you Daniel. Your very professional and I’ll be back to Ashley based on this moment.

- Why pay for an App that does nothing different

This App is Ok but you pay for phone remote functions the App by Roku (company) provides for free. One main function the App by Roku (company) provides over this app is the ability to use your phone’s headphones for private viewing if someone is in your TV room and you don’t want to disturb them. This app does not bring enough in functions for the developer to charge such a premium. That along with the lack of support, save your money and take a pass on this App.

- Works great but must pay for features on more than one device

This works great with my iPad. I paid to unlock the features. I also installed it on my iPhone. The app required A payment to unlock all the features on my iPhone. In my opinion, a person should not have to pay two times to unlock features on an app if installed on the devices with the same Apple ID!

- Roku remote replacement!i

I had been using my iPhone with the official Roku App, it was not user friendly. This remote is extremely user friendly. It is better than the official app & that's the free version. You can mix & match features from 99 cents to $3:99.I am still currently testing & checking reliability before I make any App purchases.

- Best

This app is the best thing I have ever downloaded. I gave it five stars Because use when you lose a remote then you can use this. I have been using this app nonstop. I highly suggest downloading this app because it is so great. I am rarely ever Wright reviews but this is by far the best app I thought that I should because I loved it so much.


I love this! My boyfriend likes to hog the remote, or blast the TV on full volume sometimes, and I now have the power to turn it down from my phone! I am SO happy there’s now a power button, sometimes we lose the remote and it is a PAIN to turn the TV on without it, now as long as I have my phone, I can turn it on!

- It's better than normal roku remotes even the original!

I love this app the only problem is it turns don't my volume to my Tv's and says to buy roku premium when I turn up the iPad on the app but it has it's perks I was telling my dad about robyte I turned his tv off to prove my point haha so you should get this app also this is NOT a fake review I genuinely like this app <3 thanks for reading this review uwu

- Works til after you pay.

I downloaded this because my kids kept losing the remote. Worked perfect, but I could only use the controls, no volume control or to turn it off, had to pay for all of that. $3.99 later, I am able to use everything for about a day. Then it all stopped working and it couldn’t find my roku. I did everything the troubleshooter suggested. My roku is connected to WiFi, same network as my phone. This app doesn’t work anymore. Pretty ridiculous, and would love to have my money back.

- Better functionality for free on other apps

Downloaded this app after my dog chewed up my TV remote. It is good for navigating directionally with arrows, but power, volume, and navigating by directly clicking the channel/app icon all cost extra. I ended up paying for the volume add on, and I could only go up or down one notch at a time (I would have to lock my screen between each notch.) My boyfriend then ended up downloading a different free app which had all this functionality for free, and it actually functioned. Waste of $2 on the volume add on, but whatever.

- Good but...

This app is good in terms of setting it up because you don’t even have to set it up but in order to get some of the features you have to pay. Normally this wouldn’t be an issue but you have to pay individually for each feature which I think is ridiculous. I get that they need money but it would be nice if you could pay for those features all together for some money.


I paid to have this remote app. Then, my sister introduced me to another roku remote app that has way more awesome features AND it’s free ! It has the same capabilities as this remote app, but, the other one is so much better. It’s called ‘Roku’ and it’s a white background with purple letters. Has over a million reviews, get that one!

- The coolest.

I bought a new TV with the Roku built into it and all of a sudden the volume button wouldn’t work. I restarted the tv, unplugged it, reset the remote and paired the remote to TV again and again and nothing seemed to work. I someone how found this app and it became a lifesaver, I don’t even need the remote anymore. Thank god for this!!

- Pretty disappointed

I downloaded this app because I lose my Roku remote a lot, today I bought two of the features the channels and the volume, I re-open the app and I only got one purchase was which was the volume, I still don’t have the channels button activated it even though it says it took the money. Pretty upset and disappointed, it won’t even let me pay for it again 😪

- Some features don’t work

So I got this by accident. Like most of us my kids lost the remote and I went looking for the app. I paid for the features which said it was a full key board. And it’s not. Thought it would be a lot easier to type what I’m searching then to push the arrow button. But still have to. What a rip off. Darn remote won’t turn my tv on. Phone and tv is on the same network. This has a lot of problems and need to be tested out by real ppl then placed back on the market. This app is upsetting!!!!!

- Genuine Value

Tried the free version and upgraded to Pro. The free version alone is worth the $3.99. The extra Pro features, like seeing all the channels and pressing the icon to select any one of them is very helpful. I use the App with four TVs of which 3 are Roku tuners and the 4th has a separate Roku device. Works flawlessly for all of them.

- Stopped working

My Roku App Remote has stopped working. The issue is that once I click to open it it flashes for a second then it turns off. I’ve tried reinstalling and it still does the same thing, on my iPhone and the other three iPhones that I have it installed.


I downloaded this app for free. I used it a few days and liked it. It is a good app. My unhappiness stems from the “cost”. I was willing to pay their (expensive) price EVEN THOUGH THEY CHARGE PER FEATURE ! Who buys a remote and pays “per button”? After paying their price (I knew it was high ...but the app IS good) when I decided to use a second iPad as a remote I found out you must pay the whole price (every individual feature) all over again for EVERY device you own. This is boiling the frog ! I will not contribute another penny to this fraud.

- Beware before upgrading

Before upgrading to premium, the application was functional. Since upgrading to premium, I have noticed the following issues with the application, The application notices my Roku stock and connects, however, now none of the functions work including features that come with upgrading to premium. The issue only used to be the volume control, now I am having issues launching channels from the remote or having any sort of control. Maybe the app works for you but it’s a brick for me.

- Volume button is an issue

It’s great to be able to control the TV/Roku with a smartphone; however we caused serious issues with the neighbors when we couldn’t adjust the volume on the NBA Semifinals. We also ended up not being able to watch the game because the volume was too loud, and the app wouldn’t work. We checked all the *options and Settings, to no avail.


I got the app. I had to manually enter the IP address and yes I’ve made sure it was on the proper internet tv same as my phone connection. PAID to use the volume control and it connected and worked for a few minutes and then stopped. Cannot get it to connect again. Deleted the app. Re downloaded the app. Restored my purchases. Says no device found. Manually connect and it says connected but when I go to use the remote in the app it says not connected to Roku device. Please give me my money back.

- This app is amazing!

Amazing Amazing Amazing Amazing! Have I mentioned amazing? Me and my family have been using this app as a substitute for our roku remote when it gets lost. And I don’t mind spending the extra 4-5 dollars for all the features. So if you want a good app to use instead of your roku remote this is the one for you! 😁😊😋

- Works great!

I'm using the free version and have no complaints. This is perfect for when you just can't find your Roku remote, or when the Roku remote is acting janky (which my 3 year old remote tends to do). I don't really see too much more value in the "paid" version of the app, so I'm sticking with the free one.

- This App is a Life Saver

Every time i go on vacation i take Roku. Welp this time i forgot my remote. No other app worked with my device except this one. All i had to type in was the IP Address and it connected right away. So if you forgot your remote download this app, you wont be disappointed.

- It’s great buuttt.....

So I got this app to surprise my mom about 3 days ago and I have really enjoyed it! But one thing that I didn’t like very much is how you have to be a vip or something to change channels, use the volume and other stuff.... which you have to pay money for. But the prices are very low! I just think that there should be no vip at all! But that’s just my opinion! Over all this app is great!

- It’s okay

I bought the extras because I really just needed a remote that would turn my tv off and on bc my roku remote it came with doesn’t have that. I also wanted it to turn the volume up. the volume button on the app doesn’t work and the power button only works sometimes. I hate that I spend money on this but oh well. It does what it wants sometimes, it even turned my tv on when I didn’t even have the app open. The app isn’t that good so I don’t think you should waste money on it.

- Fantastic

Great App. Especially when the kids have lost the remote or when your husband has the remote and you can still change the channel.

- You shouldn’t need to pay

It’s a good app and all but you have to pay for my to favorite features and the reason I got the app: the keyboard and the volume. If they make it that you have to pay is pretty annoying. Other than that it’s good.

- Nicky L

Thought I’d have to buy a new remote after my dog ate it. Yes she actually ate it! Thankfully I found out I could simply download the Roku App and control my viewing from my phone! Can it get easier than that?!

- ROKU 4700TL

I have paid to unlock pro features however they still don’t work- like volume, keyboard search / Voice search. Disappointed

- This app is awesome!

Wish we could turn volume up and down though otherwise it is awesome definitely recommended. You can even annoy you siblings by playing with their tv with this app by simply connecting it to their tv lol love this.😂💜🦋

- Amazing

10/10 would recommend. amazing app if your like me and you lose your remote 24/7 you can just pull out ur phone and boom magic 💕

- How much I like this app

My brother broke our tv remote and when I found this app I relished it will control our tv and my brother can’t break this. Thank you!!

- Outstanding

For once an App that does everything that is promised. So easy to use and so much better than the original remote. Worth every cent.

- Great backup

My remote died without warning 😖so it was great to be able to pick up my phone & continue watching telly🤓

- Telstra remote

Work Great the dog chewed my old remote and it takes a week to get here but now I can use my Telstra tv

- Volume doesn’t work even when paying for upgrade a freezes we have to restart app

The volume dosent work on any devices even when we upgrade and it free and

- This is.....EXTRORDIARY

Well not really but it’s amazing the only down part is I can’t finger out how to use volume even tho I brought premium but at the end of the day I give it a 9.5/10 :3 :) :D :p

- Dosent work

I'm connected to the Internet and all, but it still says "Cant connect to Roku" And the main reason I got this app was because our IRL remote dosent work, Idk why but the right stick dosent work, like at all, if you press it, but when you do press it down, it just dosent work (dosent go right) So that's my problem with this app.

- Not useful

Paid money for additional features and still can not change volume or turn the tv on/off using roku remote. Do not pay for additional features.

- Not Responsive

App does not respond well. Talk feature is bad, doesn’t obey commands. Volume pretty much plays up un-responsive. App is not worth the money they charge as it only dose basic function such as change channel that a normal remote can do. There is no benefit to this App. Complete waste of time!

- Volume didn’t work

Hi I paid for volume button it’s didn’t work please return my money back please

- Love it

Love it cause when u loss the remote you got your phone

- No headphones button

Good does what it says but I wanted it for the headphones and doesn’t seem to have that option:(

- Doesn’t work

Every time I use this I have to delete and re- download the app.. at the end of the night (or finish watching the TV) I turn the TV off and the app won’t work the next time I go to use it.... unable to connect with device...🤨

- Review

It would be nice to have control of volume on here

- Love it

Great feature using my iPhone

- Get Rokie instead

Robyte wants you to purchase the pro mode to use the features already available on Rokie (an app which is free and has most features as far as I noticed) Rate 1 star so people can get the right app Fœtus

- Broken remote

I broke my remote and someone told me about this app and I get to watch my tv and movies again

- Yakking

Same things r forever losing single

- Meh

This is great when it works - since my husband constantly misplaces the controller. However, it would be nice if it worked for more than 5 minutes before I have to uninstall, reinstall and pray that it works, instead of having to repeat the process! At least half the time I have to uninstall a second time before I can get results. The App keeps disconnecting from the TV for reasons unknown to me.

- Keyboard doesn't work

The remote on this app works just like the Roku one but the keyboard doesn't work. That was money wasted.

- Roku ne fonctionne pas; que faire ?

Roku ne fonctionne pas...

- Paying for extra

My volume doesn’t work and I paid for it and it doesn’t do anything Why make someone pay for something that doesn’t work !! Great app sucks

- Mmmm not that great

You gotta pay for the volume button and it freezes and screams all over

- Handy but will try others

Paid for the keyboard upgrade , didn’t work ..... followed instructions and uninstalled and reinstalled, then restored purchases .... still doesn’t work

- This is scam. They are hackers !!

This is scam. It will let u use it for day or two then this will stop and ask for more money. They are hackers !!

- Don’t download.

Total garbage. And seems like a scam. You need to buy the features to work them! The actual Roku app is free and doesn’t need each feature. This one is junk.

- Don’t buy

Doesn’t fully integrate. Bought the extra features and they don’t even work properly. Volume only goes up not down for example.

- Not all butons

There is no on off normes volume control

- 😠

App doesn’t work. Do not buy!!

- Keyboard doesn’t work

Everything works fine except the keyboard

- 👎🏻

Rip off no good wasted my money

- Volume

I can blast my tv but never have a way to turn it down do not buy doesn’t work

- Paywall

Don’t waste your time it’s all locked behind a paywall

- Horrible

This app is terrible don’t waste your time get the actual Roku remote App. This one can’t turn your TV on and half the time the controls don’t work! Even worse they want your money

- Roku

It is a good device for people that don't have extra money.

- roku

So far so good ... I'm getting used to the different interface!

- Not user friendly

Wouldn't recommend this app. It's not user friendly at all. The arrows don't navigate the way you intuitively expect them too and once you've made an error, it seems you have to go back to Home and start over each time. Bad roku app

- It’s a scam

Bought only keyboard - doesn’t work


very good spam

- Awesomely

Can’t believe how perfect and cool this remote control works!

- Hi I’m blank

Is rock a fruit

- Good App

Sure the base app is the same as Roku, but it was one advantage. It turn off. Roku app never turns off and run battery down if forgotten.

- Excellent

When I loose the battery, I find that application very useful

- 👍👍👍

I like it a lot it’s really good for messing with my little sister

- RoByte

This app works great. I will recommend this to anybody, Thank you.

- Sigh.

I had to pay $5.49 for the ability to turn the TV that I paid $1200 for on and off. Isn't capitalism fun?

- This app is great

If I can’t find the remote

- Does not work

No roku devices found

- Works


- Satellite down

Won’t freaking work.

- Don’t work

Garbage don’t work on ruko box

- Keyboard doesn't work

I bought this app for the keyboard, and it doesn't work. Rip-off.

- Not that good

This is for a missing remote not to pay money to type that is not that useful I was so mad not a good impression 😡🙎🏽‍♀️

- Scam

Other apps do the same thing whiteout asking for money

- Volume

Can not find the volume on this I paid extra for it you took my money and no volume control

- When I lose my controller I can easily just go onto my phone

Technically the title is right so yeah I read with the title because it

- The lost remote

I love this app. Everybody loses there remote, we never lose are cell phones it’s a great app.

- ITS so good •…•


- Do not get this app

There’s already an app for it.

- No point

This app is just trying to make money when you can just download the actual Roku app where it has a remote why would they make this app. Clearly some sort of money fishing thing is going on here. This should not exist it should be banned from the Apple App Store all apps that are remotes for tv that have apps that include remotes should be banned.

- Keyboard doesn’t work

Keyboard doesn’t work with amazon prime. Waste of a buck 39

- Small file size

Works great. Doesn’t take up much room.

- Keyboard doesn’t work

I paid for the full features specifically to be able to use the keyboard which doesn’t work.

- It’s ok

Works well except it won’t turn on the tv.

- Roku Remote App

After about ten apps, ten times each entering my IP address, and getting nowhere, I came across this app. Two seconds later my kids were able to use their Roku box! No hassle, kids can use it, and I didn’t have to do a thing besides install the app! Very pleased with this app!

- Poor app

Hard to use or even figure out. No decent guide to it. I though search on app on iPhone would yield a nice list of film availability on phone but it’s just a clumsy device for putting in text, perhaps better than with remote but harder to use. E.g., what does swipe do?Needs major rethinking. Then they charged me for both all features AND for the text ability separately, not much, a buck maybe extra, but who is going to try to get Apple to return a buck. Roku needs far better modern support than this.

- Roku for iPad

This app makes it easier to access multiple different streaming platforms - than it is from the the Roku remote. Very easy to use and requires no setup just selecting the correct Roku device if you happen to have more than 1 on your network.

- Frustrated Owner

I just bought Roku’s for each of my TV’s. (7)The app does not tell you which TV you want to connect too. You have to remember the model by Room. When you go into a larger App like Spectrum you cannot hit a number pad for the channel you have to scroll up or down. What a pain when going to upper channels. I purchased the extras for this app in hopes some of these frustrations would go away but didn’t help a thing. If I name the Roku when I link it it should show on this app. Totally frustrated with app.

- Best remote app ever!

So my TV was acting up. Couldn't see the home page. Screen went fair and stayed dark. Found this app and was elated to find the premium version at just under 4 bucks. Affordable and convenient. All my favorite apps at the touch of a button. What TV remote, huh?

- RoByte

This app is very convenient for the most part. However, there are some much needed functionality features like: 1. Channel number entry keypad. Currently the app on offers up/down arrow for channel selection. 2. Power On/Off button. Currently we have to have the factory TV remote to power on/off the TV. 3. Keyboard - Add a keyboard which will make keying in information so much easier. 4. Previous Channel Selection - A previous channel selection to allow easy toggling between two different channels. I think these additions would really improve this apps functionality. Thanks for all your work you’ve already done.

- Used to be a great app

I even paid for this app for the dumb volume button since my child destroyed my remote. I’ve had it for about a year now and it’s like it decides when it wants to work at when it doesn’t. Always fun letting a remote control your tv intake*rolls eyes*

- Can I reorder the channel list?

I have been using RoByte on my tablet for a couple of years, love it and have recommended it to others. My only question is can I reorder how the channels are listed in RoByte? How is the order set? Because it isn’t the same order as it is on my tv screen

- Riki remote issue

So many glitches. The volume won’t work sometimes or it can’t find my tv, the power button rarely works to turn it on but usually works to shut it off. I have paid $4.99 for all the feature to work and they don’t. Pretty disappointed and I have downloaded and deleted and reinstalled the app and it still doesn’t make a difference. If I could get my money back I would not worth it.

- So convenient

I love this app. I never have to look for the remote anymore because it’s always on my phone. Searches are easier with the keyboard. It’s also nice to have in the evenings when the lights are off, so I don’t have to fumble around on the remote in the dark.

- Thought I needed a real remote

I ordered two different remotes after mine got water on it and neither worked.....I downloaded this and I feel like I wasted my money on an actual replacement when this works just as well and you never lose it :) win win

- Great app !

Works perfectly, I didn’t have to connect anything to anything & it was very simple & completely un-confusing. As soon as I opened the app it was ready to go changing channels perfectly! I highly recommend this if you’ve also lost your remote😅😂!!

- Nice!! 🤩

Okay, so when I first tried this app on my phone I was like, “OMG IT WORKS!!” I tested it out with the pause button. This app really appears to work perfectly!! Also, I checked if I can download it on my iPad and boom! They also do have the app in iPad! I’m very glad you made this app! Keep it up!! 👍🏼👌🏼


This is a big improvement on the remote which ended up being a pain in the neck. It got so the remote didn’t respond to anything. Couldn’t search couldn’t change movies, this seems to solve all my problems and no batteries!

- Roku remote

This works great for about three days then gets all jammed up with Twitter. I’ve downloaded three or four times. Also . I’ve ordered THREE replacement remotes recently and returned two and broke one when I threw it down in frustration. None worked. I’m done with Roku and Netflix.

- Misleading

I downloaded the app which worked to change the channels and then purchased the additional to be able to increase the volume etc but after it took my payment I find I can’t use it from my iPad.

- Frustration Free!

My remote has been working on and off. I can't seem to get it to work, despite the many suggestions I've found online. Best suggestion I got was to download this app. Now, if my remote doesn't work, I simply use this app and I can relax with my roku frustration free!

- This app is GREAT

& this one is even better than having the actual remote! Controls this remote app is AWESOME! I lost my Roku TV remote & this one is even better than having the actual remote! Controls power on/off and even TV volume! power on/off and even TV volume!

- Works perfectly BUT

For some reason every time I open or use this app on my iPhone 6s Plus the app somehow automatically turns my phones volume all the way down, every time! I have to manually turn my volume back up and if I forget than I miss a call, this is quite annoying and wish it could be fixed, it’s the only thing I don’t like

- Good but the volume system is frustrating

App is good, functions fine- I really really hate that it hijacks my volume buttons and changes the volume level, and despite that it doesn’t work reliably (specifically the volume function) because it relies on messing with system volume. Please please just let us change volume with on-screen buttons or a slider.

- I love roku app

The reason I love it is because when my sister has the remote and it's my turn to have it and she fell a sleep with the remote under her I can just get my phone and turn on a show I want to watch thank you for letting me rate and tell you why I love it ❤️

- It connects automatically

I’ve tried many Roku remote apps because I lost the remote to my roku tv and whenever I tried one it would take forever to connect but this one connects automatically so I don’t have to wait it’s awesome!

- Waste of money

Just purchased all extras and nothing works except the remote and that’s only because I had to reboot my phone to get it to work. When the remote works it takes its time going from app to app and my selections. No keyboard that I paid volume control that I paid for. I could have used another app and gotten the same result except it would have been free! I’m not sure how there could be so many great reviews when it’s not working well for me. This is junk!

- Lame

You have to buy all the features to even make it worth having it on your phone or else it’s literally just a “fancy” remote control except you can’t change the volume, so bye bye private listening, you can’t go into the apps that you want, you can’t do anything on it except power on and off... hmm not that fancy after all, money grubbing forking forks is what they are what a joke, if it’s a one time payment for pro then I’m sure I will change my review 😂

- Problems

I thought it was just going to show Bluetooth but you have to put your ip and name of tv. The only reason I got this app is because I lost my remote and was looking for it but couldn’t find it. I actually didn’t know the ip or tv name and the tv was off with no remote so this app is useless if you lost your remote. Though it would work well once I found my remote there was then no reason for the app

- Don’t believe it.

No set up? Then where are my channels? Oh, I have to set up the device with my Roku. How do I turn on the Roku? No clue. I have to use Roku remote to turn on the Roku - so what’s the point? Unless, of course, I have to pay another $0.99 for that option. After getting it on, the directional arrows don’t work to go to a channel. Is that another $1.99 to add that option? Don’t advertise “Free” if it costs extra just to perform the very basic operation to Power on the remote that i am supposed to be replacing.

- Shut down

Only thing I hate is it keeps turning off. Goes back to the main page, no warning or nothing? So don’t know if it’s because of time, but most systems give a heads up or are you still watching. Not with Roku, why???

- Somewhat unsatisfying!

I loved the app, at first it felt amazing to finally be able to found an app that’ll work with my tv! Every time I would press the up/down sideways button, even though I would press the button once, it kept on scrolling on my tv like I went nuts with it! I have to actually press different buttons on my app to get the scrolling to stop. I thought going PRO was going to help me but it never did! Even I couldn’t turn my tv in with the app which is disappointing for someone who’s bought the whole deal to get access to everything. I would really like it if you would fix this problem please...

- Basic buttons only

Don’t bother downloading this app if you plan to use the free version. This app does not allow full function unless you pay for the pro version. Well actually I did pay for the upgrade to use the keyboard but it was nowhere to be found after paying for it. I have emailed the company and will see what I hear but in the meantime I downloaded the ROKU app and it is completely free with a keyboard and volume control (if you use your tv sound).

- Not nice effect

As a simple remote, this works well. There are extra features for an extra fee. The annoying effect is the remote app sets the iPhone volume to 1. When the user uses the volume control on the phone the app shows the ad to upgrade since volume control is an extra cost feature. User needs to remember to turn up the volume after exiting the app. Annoying bad behavior.

- It is an ok app

It is an ok app bc u have to put in ur card information if u want to use it all and I thank u should delete and get a different one. Well one my tv u can turn up or down the volume on the side. So I kinda need this remote. I have to pay for it to do that so my tv is really loud rn so don’t wast ur time or money on this one just get a new app that will do the same thang but probably u won’t have to pay for stuff.


3 year old loves hiding the remote . Then throws a truck drivers fit when I can’t find it and he’s forgotten where he’s hidden it . Because this hampers his mission of watching the troll movie on Netflix 24/7! Thank God this app exists and works so well or there would be no peace in my home . THANK YOU APP INVENTOR PERSON THANK YOU

- Volume not working

Purchased entire package. Volume still not working. I’ve deleted app and re-installed. Also I’ve re-booth it. Still not being able to control tv volume from my phone

- Easy Peasy

Ran into an issue when my one year old poured juice all over the original Roku remote. This app had us back up and running in less than 2 minutes. We could also add the remote in another room by pressing the add feature. This is a wonderful app!! 5 stars for sure!!

- Pretty good!

Downloaded this app because my remote was lost (I suspect the cats). I was amazed with the ease that this app picked up my roku controls. However, every now and then the button for left or right gets stuck, or clicks just delay and queue all at once. Besides this bug, works better than expected!

- Get the official FREE one from Roku! Much better

This is not the official mobile app from Roku. That can be downloaded for free and has many more functions. It is simple to set up. Don't be fooled and waste your money. I discovered this when I needed some technical support online...which is only for the app from Roku. I'm sorry so many people obviously aren't realizing there's a much better app out there for free. It's misleading when the Roku set-up itself leads you to the wrong app!

- Very happy

Our handheld remote quit working. I downloaded this app. It is easier to use than the remote was. I always know where my phone is, not so with the remote and I don’t have to change the batteries ever again!

- Easy to use

My mom isn’t very tech savvy and she had no problem using this app to select the Netflix icon from the tv menu and choose then change shows. Works great for when the remote get misplaced

- Excellent product

I just replaced my BLU RAY DVD/streaming video as it was glitchy for a couple months now. My friend recommended ROKU. It was easy to install and just as easy to operate. I should have replaces it sooner. I’m telling all my friends I’m never watching regular TV again.

- Pretty good but could have some changes

I bought this app and when i got it i only had the remote and there were much more things I could of gotten but it all costs money 💵 it makes me mad 😡 really 😡. 😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😤😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠😠. Thank You 😊 for reading 📖

- Great with small purchase

This app works great with a small in app purchase of $3. This let’s you control the volume and have a search pad on your phone. The only thing it can’t do is turn on and. Turn on the tv This app

- App needs update

The volume control does not work and causes the app to lock up. If I press a volume control it doesn’t do anything and I have to quit out of the app and restart it for it to work again. This happens on both my iPad 11 inch and an iPhone SE 2020. On two different Roku.

- Works part of the time

It only works part of the time. There are other remotes for Roku TVs that works much better and don’t charge extra for things like volume control. I only use this remote for one tv and often it says it can’t connect to my device and it’s not an internet issue, so I won’t be using this app anymore.

- By accident

I started using this app actually because the battery died in my Roku remote control. I now use this all the time. It’s much more convenient to reach me for my phone because it’s usually in my hand anyway. 😁

- Yeaaaaaa! Finally!!!

After trying several apps with inconsistent and frustrating results, I finally found one that turns the TV ON! A must when you’ve lost your remote😊. Having a channel changer isn’t very useful WHEN YOU CAN’T TURN THE TV ON😳

- You think it’s free until you start using it

I gave it 3 stars because when you purchase a free app you expect it to be free. When you start using it, it tells you the premium things like the keyboard function cost extra. I’m sure it works great if you pay for all of the features, but I only got to because it said free...

- Alright but hate pro upgrades

So my sister lost the remote to her roku so when I Launched the app, I thought I could access everything on my iPad. However, when I saw the pro upgrades they look stupid. I cannot change the volume on my Roku tv And that’s annoying. Please fix it’s that way I can change my volume via this app and then I will read it five stars. Other than that amazing app

- Would do zero stars if I could

Tell me, someone, why I would need a roku remote app if my roku remote was working? Because this garbage app seems to think that I would have both, proving that the people who make roku devices are idiots. Not only that, but it doesn’t even work. Can’t tell you how many things I’ve tried and it still doesn’t connect to my roku tv. Then, there isn’t even a way to contact support so. Pointless crap. Don’t get.

- Slow startup

Basically to get the TV to turn on is really slow and takes me like 5 tries. Literally the only reason I’m using it is because my kid threw ours away and we never found it.

- Robyte vs roku tv remote.

I didn’t realize that the first roku app that appeared on the list was not the official roku app. That’s my fault fir not checking it out better. It was a free app to download but once downloaded , you quickly find out that to use the keyboard and to have full functionality, it’s an additional $4 and it’s still not as good as the free official roku ap that’s fully functional from the get go. Please take the time to make sure that your downloading the free roku app and not the RoByte app. .
