There are so many adds what the hell is this. Foolishness
For whatever reason, the remote that actually comes with the roku stock decides when it wants to work with the roku. It will always turn volume up and down and of course power but the remote won’t change channels, scroll through apps etc. I believe it to be an actual stick issue but after finding and using the roku remote app I would highly recommend using this over actual remote. Is a pain to have to use your phone not as quick access. But it works a million times better
It never connects to the tv like come on now connect
Having problems loading Needs to be updated
I love the app I have no problems with it but for some reason when I try to put my headphones to hear the tv without being loud to my roommate it has trouble for example you can hear it but then you can’t please fix it soon!!!
I lost the Roku remote and I couldn’t find it and then a cane across this app and it makes my phone into a remote🙂it was very inconvenient
It works like a remote plus you can add photos on it I give it 5 stars :)
The remote on this app is a life saver. The remote for my new Roku stick stopped working after a few days. I ordered a replacement remote from Amazon, but that never worked. The only way I have been able to control my Roku device is with this app. Thank you!
You need it for a Roku tv
I can’t even make a account
Easy to use
Remote was working perfectly and then it stopped and never worked again
So now Roku has decided to remove channels that “concerned” busybodies don’t want us to see.
It was working just fine then started going on about how I’m not connected to the WIFI which I am because all my other apps and devices are working just fine on it. Please fix.
This is a great app it is so amazing but I only had one issue using the app and that is its not letting me access the remote because something is not working but everything is working on my phone and tv😑
The Roku app opens, I can see my device, but when I tap it nothing happens. The app just keeps looking for more devices. Nothing in their support references this issue, and no agent help available. Terrible app and terrible support.
FF / RW functions are recognized but often not carried out, rendering these functions fatally flawed. This issue exists both with OEM remote as well as with this app, which I was hoping wouldn’t have it. Roku I hope you’re paying attention to this review; your RC in this realm is like forcing a book reader to either 1.) Always pickup reading from where you last stopped, or 2.) start reading all over again from the very beginning. With many amazon prime videos, more often than not there are no other options. And that is what earns Roku two stars and no more. Roku definitely should provide fix as a high priority. Without one this app and more are fatally flawed trying to watch these videos.
It’s so convenient. This is the only app that has the headphone ability. I like it a lot.
Better than Roku remote. More reliable than Roku remote. More reliable than Roku. I’ve been plagued with buggy Roku 4K stick. Generally don’t like it. All sorts of flakey behavior. The remote has been infuriating. I can’t tell if it’s the remote or Roku. Seems likely it’s buggy software in the Roku. This app seems to bring the best of the Roku. Works well. Good UI. Easy access to what the Roku has to offer. A definite improvement over regular interaction.
Great app ,but I had two roku boxes that both died within two weeks of each other for some unknown reason ..customer support was non existent when I looked for assistance ...so yes app is great as long as you have something to use it on .
Great little app for controlling your roku, can be a bit slow when scrolling at times but otherwise it is quite responsive.
Very disappointing no decent channel returning mine
Please make a proper ipad app !!!
Won't recognise my Roku LT even though that and my phone share the same wifi connection.
