Roku is the greatest accessory ever for my TV. It does so much and I can use my I phone as a remote. I can use blue tooth headphones is also a great option if I don’t want to wake up my spouse.

N.Hester's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/6/18 1:11 PM
I’ve downloaded a couple other versions of the remote, none were as intuitive & streamlined as this one. I love the fluidity of the menu, the fact that it highlights shows & movies on the Roku channel, the “what’s on” feature, & the ability to view photos & videos from my phone w/o needing a separate casting app. Not only is it better than the other apps. It’s better than the remote that came with the tv. 💁🏾♀️

This app is so much fun. It's fun if you go to a friends house and secretly make their ROKU seem possessed. Lots of fun possibilities!

I had lost my remote for weeks. Then I remembered I had this awesome app. Total life saver.
inw60's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/5/18 7:02 PM
We love this app. Especially since we have young kids who constantly loose the actual roku remotes. The one issue that bothers with the app is that you can not use the app if you are using the same device (iPhone) to stream content as we do in the vehicle while traveling. It would be worth 5 stars if Roku could fix this.

MissPicky!'s Review of RokuReviewed on 9/4/18 2:23 PM
I love how the roku remote is free to download, easily accessible/links to your box very easily, and you can minimize the roku app on your phone and still watch tv. The only think I wish I could change or improve is there should be volume and on/off/sleep mode button so you can turn your actual tv off and control the sound.

Run4AnnieRun's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/3/18 4:39 AM
This by far is the best $40 I’ve spent. The Express was so simple to set up and sync to all my apps. The remote is small and has to be pretty close and pointed directly at the Roku box so I normally use the remote on my phone and it works perfectly! I love having all my shows and music in one place, definitely a perfect alternative to cable!

With the ability to listen through my Bluetooth headphones this had become my preferred way to control my Roku device. Recently though it does not see all of my devices. I have removed the app and reinstalled, re-established the network connections for all devices, restarted them all, and nothing seems to work. Disappointing...

I love having this app, as our remotes were destroyed by our toddlers. However, it always loses connection and I have to pretend that I am going to settings and then re-open the app. This happens constantly. Has this been addressed with the update? Other than that it is a very helpful app to have

RJOrr6's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/28/18 11:07 PM
You have to fix this. The most annoying experience ever. The No WiFi popup comes up even when on WiFi (not strong connection). The only way to do anything is to click Go To Settings. Which is a waste of time because after clicking it the app works again for 5-10 seconds before repeating the process all over. At minimum allow the user to X out of the Go To Settings popup and remain in the app. Best case you just fix the issue so there is no popup when a connection exists. Please please fix this.

Sandy D's Music's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/27/18 5:28 AM
This app works 100% better than the remote that came with the television. I've only had this TV for about 2 1/2 weeks, but I've had nothing but issues with the remote. It works sporadically, when it wants to. At first I thought it might be faulty batteries, so I replaced them with brand new ones. Same issue. Frustrating thing is, there's only 1 button on the bottom left corner of the TV itself, so when the remote goes out, it's super difficult to operate it. This app is a lifesaver!! Highly recommend!
GoskiOne's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/27/18 4:52 AM
I used to love this remote. It has an easy user interface and the options are great. However, after a recent update, I have noticed that when you go into another app and go back to it, the remote loses connection. Sometimes I have to close the app and try to reconnect which can take several minutes. Please fix this Roku!
gr33n73's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/27/18 4:41 AM
I like the private listening feature. However, I don’t like the advertising in the app. Why can’t you remove the channel Fandango Now? I never added it. It’s the first app. It’s in the way. It can’t be removed but the rest can. I would pay to remove advertising.
Dude_Idunno's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/27/18 4:23 PM
Hate it. It's missing some simple mechanics on the watching apps that the physical remote had. Which makes it aggravating when your are trying to rewatch something and there's no way to play it from the beginning or rewind. Other than that it works well enough to "do what it needs to".
Pug mom 6's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/27/18 1:25 PM
My toddler broke our real Roku remote so until a replacement gets here this is a nice option so I can’t totally complain. My real issue is that in order for it to connect and be useful, I have to disconnect and reconnect the tv before it will let me use it. I don’t get it but again, happy I have some sort of option.

Gojoe1212's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/27/18 11:53 PM
Major flaw is that you can’t enter a channel number! Want to switch between channel 11 and 565? Be prepared to spend a ridiculous amount of time scrolling endlessly. Also unlike the actual remote, no volume control which makes app virtually unless.
Manuche239's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/27/18 11:40 AM

Jprawson's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/27/18 11:31 PM
Installed the app on my iPad and iPhone... works faster, smoother, and better than the actual Roku remote. Considering we have more than one Roku unit in our home, and that it’s a free application, it is a no-brained if you have a Roku box. We sent our Spectrum cable boxes back and are saving $12 per TV per year.
_AOXOMOXOA_'s Review of RokuReviewed on 9/26/18 7:20 PM
The reason this is so useful is because it uses your WiFi to connect to the Roku. So you don’t have to keep the line of sight. You can hide your Roku behind the tv. Use this mobile phone app and control everything.

JoeSimmons's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/26/18 3:13 PM
While it is a good idea, the private listening function simply does not work. After using it, and trying to return audio to the TVs speakers, the audio does not return and a manual restart is required to return audio to the TVs speakers. Probably a bug that needs to be fixed.

The app is virtually unusable. It disconnects every few seconds from the roku and WiFi then asks to go to settings. I know that there is WiFi connection as the other remote apps are still working and the setting confirm that it’s connected to WiFi.
dwoody22's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/26/18 11:29 AM
I love this review when it connects to my Roku boxes, unfortunately it only connects about 5-10% of the time. I can be right next to the player, and it is in, but it still won’t connect. This has been the case since I’ve had this app.
overitwasteoftime's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/26/18 11:01 PM
Still very glitchy tends to do it’s own thing. Tv turns on when it wants. Freezes often and very difficult and lengthy to navigate. Shows volume control on app before download but not there after install. Hope to see many improvements to come soon. Still Beta version for Exfinity.
HHFRMDATRAP's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/25/18 9:03 PM
Why would I need to type in my card/billing information for an app that I don’t need to purchase? Not to mention that it was already downloaded previously on my old phone & even has the cloud download icon. I rated it a 3 cause the app isn’t bad, except it occasionally disconnects from my roku for no reason, it’s just really pissing me off that I can’t download it without card info
Code Firecat's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/25/18 8:33 PM
I’m using this app on an iPhone. I said that to say, when I first open the Roku app it works perfectly. About 20-30 minutes later, it says that my tv is turned off and it can’t detect a tv with Roku. I don’t know if the fact that I’m using the app on an iPhone 7 has anything to do with it not working, but this is extremely frustrating. I really wish it worked all the time like it does when I first open the app! Nothing I do makes it work again until the next day. Please fix this issue. Update: This app will NOT work at ALL anymore. I put it down to 1 star ONLY because that’s the lowest rating you can give.

I love this app but sometimes my phone is dead and charging and during that time I want to use the Roku. It would be nice if you put your amazing app on the apple watch as well so I could change channels or apps using it like a remote just like the phone so I can still watch tv. Please consider it. I have literally 3 Roku TVs and 2 stand alone Roku devices (2 in the living room, 2 in the bedroom and 1 in the bathroom), so it would mean a lot to me if you could make this. Thank you.

When I first got this app, I thought it was awesome. Totally saves me when I lose my remote. However, recently I opened the app and it’s no longer like the regular remote that you tap, now you have to swipe the screen to move the cursor. It is so sensitive that it barely works. I spend more time accidentally clicking on the wrong things than the right ones! Why change something that was perfectly fine the way it was?! :( I’m disappointed.

Gracelw21's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/24/18 1:56 PM
Never connects to my TV whether I turn it off manually and back on, and then use the remote or if I want to change the channel it doesn’t reconnect after I close out of the app, and I have to turn my TV off again manually and back on for the remote to work. The point of a remote is to not have to get up to change the channel by hand on the TV. This app doesn’t offer that. Thumbs down.

Get this right now, I’ll tell you my story to explain ok and don’t click of plz just listen! So I really wanted to get a tv for my game room at my moms house, and I went to pc Richard & son and got my new tv (not knowing it was a roku tv) when I got home I looked at the box and I mean I really looked at the box like reading everything, as soon as I saw the picture that showed the Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and much more (I forgot but there’s like 10 things you can get) and the awesome thing is, is that it’s really easy to set up and you can get a few channels for free such as the “roku channel” and HBONow and something else! And you can watch all your favorite shows such as family guy the Simpsons etc. on the channels! Ohh and I had to set up my xbox to the tv, yeah we’ll it took a little over 1 minute to do that! Ha, ya go cop this tv now and I’m not just some guy getting payed to wright this, I’m an actual customer and this is dope!

Still loading the old remote template from the previous version without volume control and without power on/off switch - not the one that is shown here with both of these controls. Please correct this. Thanks

When it’s connected it works great. But if the tv is on for an hour or two without the remote being touched it disconnects and won’t connect unless the tv is unplugged and plugged back in. It will tell you to check if the tv is on when it’s already on. This review is for my tcl Roku tv
Disappointed Khloe fan's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/20/18 3:55 AM
Despite troubleshooting for almost half an hour this app didn’t manage to connect to the Roku tv. Mind you, the iPhone and Roku tv are connected to the same wireless network. Also tried to manually connect with entering the Roku IP address to no avail. Garbage frustrating app. Deleted from my phone.

This app works great for the most part, but as of late it has A LOT of issues. My phone stays connected to the internet, but the app says it’s not and forces me to go back and forth between the settings app and this one multiple times before I get to use the tv. Clearly needs some bug fixes.
BillyGene3's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/20/18 11:39 PM

joenelson1279's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/2/18 7:38 AM
Works great and so nice to be able to control everything on my phone. One suggestion: enable a setting so that we can choose to have the actual “Remote” tab appear first when opening the App instead of the “What’s On” tab. 9/2/18: I’ve seen many comments asking for the same improvement suggestion I made. Any chance of this happening?
VanceTheVolvo's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/2/18 5:30 PM
This app is pretty great. I always lose the remote but never lose the phone, and even if I did, can you call your remote? Nope. And it works as well as the remote...just use it as a remote, not that hard.

The app is nice because I accidentally broke my remote a while back. However it’s really annoying the app refuses to stay connected to wifi even though everything else in the vicinity has no problems. I’ll even have the 3 bars showing strength of the wifi, but it will tell me the app’s not connected. Aside from that the apps been convenient.

If you’re like me, you don’t wanna have many remotes. Most universals can’t provide the basic hand hold features that the original remote provides, nor do other apps. Some would ask for more but the basic UI behavior is what I was after.

Honestly I wish I could rate 0 stars!!! I have had nothing but trouble from my roku stick and this remote. I can’t seem to understand WHY you cannot connect the WiFi to your stick without original remote. I borrowed roku remote from a friend and still couldn’t get remote to work. I have read every blog, watched every YouTube video trying to get clarity on how to simply connect this remote to my new WiFi. Two weeks later and I’m still not connected. EPIC FAIL
Bexxxxy's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/19/18 4:22 AM
Bought my 32” TCL ROKU TV on Black Friday $120 our the door.... that was 5 years ago. The remote had been through a lot. So much that it bugged out on me. I look to see if there’s an app for it. There is. Not only is it a functional remote, “just what I needed” it was way more. 10/10 best ship I caught early thus far.
YouNeedBetterSupport's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/19/18 3:04 AM
Every time I try to connect my phone to the tv, it says that it’s in eco mode but it’s not. I’ve done everything Roku Support has said and it hasn’t changed. If I could rate this zero stars, I would because it’s very unhelpful.

Hailyy_Bay_16985's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/17/18 3:55 PM
This app is absolutely amazing, from having control of your TV apps, name, themes, and layout right here at the top of your finger tips, to having a back up remote when needed or even just one when you don’t feel like reach for the other. This app is truly amazing and makes navigating Roku even easier. DEFINITELY would recommend!

eagar77's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/15/18 5:27 PM
The idea is fantastic and I love the private listening feature when it works, but in general, there are more problems than it’s worth. Constantly disconnecting even though my WiFi is strong and working everywhere else. Glitches in the remote. Stating there is no detectable Roku device even though the device is on and working fine. Overall, love the idea but the actual product is less than helpful.
Millionaire27's Review of RokuReviewed on 9/15/18 4:46 PM
This remote works very well and is easy to say surpasses the remote it came with. However, my biggest frustration is that when I switch to my PlayStation or DVD player the tv is in “rest mode” and no longer works. And when I switch over to these other devices, often I need to change the volume setting and i can’t with the remote. I also can’t switch back to the tv without powering down the other device either. Other than that, it works great but will try the other ones on the App Store to see if they have that functionality

This app is one of the worst I’ve ever had to deal with. 9/10 times it doesn’t connect to my tv and if a miracle happens and it does connect I only have a certain amount of seconds before it loses connection. It does this EVERY SINGLE TIME. In fact it has made me stop using the tv all together and instead I simply watch things on my laptop because I don’t have the physical remote anymore, not that it worked any better, but this is the most frustrating thing and I dot recommend anyone get it or even buy their tv go with Samsung, the one I should’ve gotten in the first place.

It does what is supposed to do, but unfortunately there’s much improvement needed. I used to love having Spotify there but I’ll settle with pandora, which constantly glitches same with the HBO Now app and other apps event the antenna option glitches constantly, but ok maybe it’s not just roku’s fault but I’m guessing it has to do with roku making it hard for these and other apps. Another thing, having the option to display your own photos while playing music, why is it taking so long to do add this!? I’m now using chromecast in my tv which ALREADY HAS ROKU IN IT.🤦🏻♀️👎🏼

Love the app so far. However, after setting up my Roku account to always ask for a pin before any purchase is allowed or channels are added and then connecting to the app, it seems those security measures did not carry over as the app did not ask for my pin when I added some channels and purchased my first movie. This concerns me as I have young kids and don’t want them to have free access to buy movies at will or add channels I don’t approve. It would be a really great supportive tool with this issue fixed! Love the ability to connect my headphones for quiet and more clear listening :)

There is no headphone when using the app so it is close to useless for me. Yes you can use the headphone jack on the actual remote but that defeats the purpose of using the app for me because I use the headphones most of the times. One more suggestion for the developers: You should be able to use the headphone jack AND THE TV SPEAKERS AT THE SAME TIME. I like to watch TV at a louder volume than my girlfriend, so it would be nice if she could listen through the TV while I can listen through the headphones simultaneously.

Just got the Roku tv and the first week I was so excited that I could completely control the tv with my phone INCLUDING TURNING IT ON AND OFF! So cool! But now I can’t turn it off without the remote, the button don’t always work and I can’t even turn down the volume using my phones volume control anymore. I’m worried the longer I use it the less things I’ll be able to get to work

What I like about Roku vs. my Amazon Firestick is that on Roku you can use “YouTube T.V.” It has a Remote and it has more options on the remote for Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Sling.

F@&* No!!!'s Review of RokuReviewed on 8/28/18 10:44 PM
I bought my husband a Roku television set. It seemed like a wonderful concept. First of all, I shouldn’t need WiFi to use the app. I have unlimited data. Sometimes WiFi is terrible as I live in Oklahoma. I get tired of being told WiFi is required to search in the app for what I am looking for at that moment. That is a nuisance to say the least. Second of all, I should have some sort of search feature on my television. I am constantly searching channel by channel looking for something to watch. It is an endless search looking for something I want to watch. I often return to my cable because it is exhausting looking for a movie or certain genre or or type of show I wish to see at the moment. Needs serious work with a group of employees willing to put in the effort to make Roku all it can and should be.

Hejdkikaksnnsondkb's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/27/18 3:26 AM
What happened to you!?? I’ve used this app for almost 3 years and was great. Now, it NEVER consistently stays connected to my Roku. Remotes are very often used to suddenly pause, or ffwd or rewind. When I finally connect, By the time I get the blasted thing to finally connect and respond, I’ve gone too far forward or reverse! So that means that it’s losing connection not only while the phone is at rest, but also during mid use! Get it together, Roku! 5 stars to 3 for me! Fix this and you’re a 5 again in my book.
PinkyWhit's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/27/18 1:28 AM
I use my phones WiFi hotspot to connect my Roku but for whatever reason this app would never even operate for me without an outside WiFi connection. I found the App pretty useless since I couldn’t even open it. Maybe they could release an update that allows it to open and run with Cellular data

The integrated roku took my brand new tv hostage for 45 minutes while it updated itself (without asking if I wanted to update) and a bunch of “channels” I didn’t choose or cared about. No option to stop the process or to at least use the inputs in the meantime. Horrible customer experience.

PetuniaBlue's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/22/18 9:37 AM
Works ok but needs to allow landscape mode esp for iPad. Great for private listening. Needs a stop button for video not just pause since pause doesn’t function well within some apps on Roku. Needs to have way to easily make comments about problems with roku product itself & it’s associated apps. Apps inside Roku do have a screen which allows a rating for app but if you pick feedback - no place for comment if your problem with app is not listed-very frustrating. Roku is a nice alternative to cable or in addition to cable to allow one to the watch shows in one’s own available time or in a room without cable but you do need a roku for each tv. Main downside to Roku is some free watching apps within Roku commercial you to death showing as many as 4 to 6 commercials every 11 minutes!!

I know that my network/WiFi isn’t bad at all. So it’s kind of frustrating when it can not connect because my device and tv aren’t on “the same network” although they are. I thought it could be that my network wasn’t great on my tv but it’s fine everywhere else (???) I’m not sure. I don’t usually have this problem and nothings changed with my WiFi. Hopefully this can be fixed one day. Until then I must find my remote 😩
davidreview's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/20/18 7:19 PM
Nice addition. Usually it’s the remote that makes me use the app. I even briefly used the headphone feature. Which sounds like a great addition. At least when I tried it, it didn’t work 100%. This was a few months ago mind you. And you will need to take into account many things. I was using a Roku TV. Latest update etc. The iPhone X was on its latest update. All in all, I hope for the best. I do hope the ADs don’t make this look and feel like crap. Roku said it’s in the AD business, not hardware. So we will see.

He reason it’s two stars is it won’t turn on the tlc tv anymore I can only turn it on and off with the remote. Outside of that the app is very nice. My tv is about a year old. But now I can only use the remote app once the tv is on ever with the tv up to date on its end. So it’s a good app as long as it turns on and off the TVs. Once it can do that again I’ll change my ratings.

srvpink's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/18/18 6:43 AM
I lost my remote so I downloaded this for the remote, honestly would be perfect if it didn’t constantly disconnect from my tv. It works fine when I first open the app, but it eventually will say that it disconnected or that I’m not connected to WiFi (even tho I am), and the only thing that makes it work again is deleting the app and then re-downloading it. And then the process starts all over again where it works the first time I use it but eventually disconnects. It’s an endless cycle, very frustrating, will probably just spend the money to get a new remote.

I recently switched to Roku after having a couple chrome casts for a few years. Streaming is crystal clear and it’s really nice to have a casting device that’s doesn’t need a phone to operate. Other cool features like private listening mode so you dont haven’t to annoy your friend/girlfriend/ boyfriend/whatever with your workaholics binging. Comes with a nifty remote for only 30 bucks! No lag or glitches like chrome cast. I recommend this to anyone wanting a true smart tv experience, you will not be disappointed.

Who else can never find their Roku remote in their living room??!?!? Hiding under a cushion, accidentally brought into the other room? Have no fear, your phone can now be your remote! Awesome! I think the best part is the searching because you can use the regular query keyboard on your phone. No more searching for the letter!!

Suppaflyy's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/14/18 11:57 PM
This Roku remote control app works so good on my Roku TV. I like all the features especially the remote headphone feature private listening him that I can listen to it away from the TV I can walk all around the house. I can actually mow the yard and listen to the TV. I love how easy it is to cast to from my cell phone and other devices it works great I am satisfied I will buy a Nother one.
Bereket & Mesi's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/14/18 10:20 PM
Great remote control. I use it daily. Fast on the new iPhones. But the keyboard search not working on the free version.I would have given it 5 star if it’s keyboard YouTube search function.

I use this app to connect my Bluetooth speakers using private listening. That feature is really cool! However, connecting the app to the tv can be a hassle. I find myself manually entering the IP address in order to connect. Once it’s connected it works flawless. Don’t know what’s up with that, it used to connect automatically.

Gr8pimpin's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/12/18 6:05 PM
Seems they had fixed this problem. Old problem was When you paused and restarted, audio would be out of sync. You would have to turn off and then back on, the private listening. NOW PROBLEM is that it just drifts out of sync as you watch a show. Drifts a split second and progressively gets worse until you turn on and off private listening and then problem starts again with a few minutes. PLEASE FIX THIS FOR GOOD!!
juslan22's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/12/18 3:25 AM

The remote is functional but the app will give me an ad every time I pause or play a movie. Every time I’m scrolling, it only takes 5 or so taps for another ad to pop up. Wouldn’t recommend

I have tried for over one whole year to get resolution to an issue with the Mobile Screensaver on the Roku 4 - 4400X. I have not been able to change or even remove the photos I added. I have uninstalled the app several times. I have even tried from another device (I have an iPhone 6 with up-to-date iOS). I have a thread of more than 30 emails with “support” and then I don’t hear back. Garbage.

denee2012's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/11/18 12:58 PM
In a world where every device is tech, computer wizards seem to forget about the technology challenged folks. Thank goodness the designers at Roku have kept it clean, simple, and straightforward. Our cable company makes us rent one device to be able to steam through Roku, but Roku’s is so much better we stuck the cable box off in a guest room no one uses and placed our Roku on the main TV. Couldn’t be happier!

Deewrestledabearonce's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/10/18 6:53 PM
I think it’s extremely selfish of this company to take away private listening on older Roku devices to get people to buy a new Roku TV. Please bring it back. Not everyone can afford a new device every time a new one comes out. Until then, I can only give this app 1 star.

Themusicman08's Review of RokuReviewed on 8/10/18 10:44 PM
I am a visually impaired user of this application. I noticed that on the remote control, where the arrows and the OK button and anything else are concerned. Voiceover just announces the word, button. So we have to label the buttons ourselves in order to find out what they are. I would like to see Roku improve this application and have VoiceOver support over all, this app is great to have if you don’t want to use the physical remote. I would also like to see voice recognition put into this for those who have limited mobility. This would also be great if we could use this over our cellular data. Especially for those who have unlimited data. And auto lock feature in the previous reviewer‘s comment I second. But I understand why it’s not here since an iPhone battery can be drained very quickly.

Nothing to see here. Roku has great devices, but EVERYTHING surrounding it is sub par. The Rokie remote is better than the official Roku tool. Roku customer is some of the worst I’ve ever seen, so although I do recommend Roku devices, I also recommend using 3rd party tools where possible.

I’m using this app on an iPhone. I said that to say, when I first open the Roku app it works perfectly. About 20-30 minutes later, it says that my tv is turned off and it can’t detect a tv with Roku. I don’t know if the fact that I’m using the app on an iPhone 7 has anything to do with it not working, but this is extremely frustrating. I really wish it worked all the time like it does when I first open the app! Nothing I do makes it work again until the next day. Please fix this issue.

I used to recommend this App to anyone and everyone. Having trouble with your remote? No worries! To the Roku Remote App! But I’m getting ready to redact all those positive reviews. I’ve been trying to login for 48 hours. I’ve requested the password link at least nine times, a link which is sent via email, and received nothing. Not in my In box, and not in my Junk folder. Nowhere. Tried to contact them via chat. First I was 13 in the queue. Then I was 16. Then I was bumped from the queue repeatedly. Then I received emails confirming the bump. But still no emailed link. I emailed back. And still nothing.

musicman9600's Review of RokuReviewed on 7/28/18 7:53 PM
After making the mistake of buying a Roku app from another company that didn’t work well at all (RoByte Roku Remote Control Premium) I found this app which does everything you need and more. Besides all of the remote functions, it also has voice activated search, and the ability to plug your headphones into your iPhone/iPad for personal listening. You could go to a Music app on your Roku TV or channel from your cable/internet provider and go around listening through earbuds. There’s a lot of good stuff under the hood in this app. A nice “Thank You” from ROKU Inc. I assume for purchasing their product.

Theoretically great, but every time I try to use it, I am required to manually set up connection. It is probably related to the fact I have a TCL(Totally Crappy Lame) Roku tv. But if Roku is going put their name on and pair with a brand then it should probably be seamlessly compatible. I usually get a message saying that my tv isn’t turned on even though it clearly is. Just frustrated.

I can’t begin to tell you if any of the supposed features of this app work because I cannot get the app to even find my Roku Ultra. I was a computer network technician for the last 30 years so I know a little bit about network setup & IP Addressing and such. I’ve been thru their setup instructions several times & the best the app can do is to find some device at the correct address but it doesn’t recognize it as a Roku of any type. It seems like Roku support is next to impossible to reach if your problem isn’t on their list of possible problems. Not worth the time.

Like this app a lot. Use it to control my TCL tv I got last Black Friday. When I first got this app I was really impressed with how responsive and easy to use it was. A few weeks ago it has become pretty much useless. My 16 month old son has lost our battery powered remote that came with the TV and now this app I have used to control our TV has stopped working. Every time I boot it up it says WiFi not connected even though it is, I really hope that the devs fix this problem because this is a great app when it works!

How cool is this! I can control my audio/video devices with my iPhone!!! Was very hesitant about purchasing a “smart” device. But, boy, howdy, we are very, very ecstatic about the world of entertainment and/or technology that has suddenly opened up before our eyes! The ease of “pairing” with the tv is automatic, requiring only the tap of the remote icon on my phone. Being a Cold War kid, who was raised with the Jetson’s, Star Trek, and the greatest race in history, the Space Race, (which for y’all young whipper snappers was a race to the MOON!!!) this is just friggin’ amazing!! I hold more technology power in my phone than an entire room of 1960’s computers did back in the day. I know that soon, everything will be connected, and if it’s as easy and enjoyable as this app, it’ll be groovy!

HumbleTim's Review of RokuReviewed on 7/21/18 4:47 PM
I have two Roku TVs in one room and needed a way to control them both at the same time separately. This works perfect for that. As a bonus I can also control the boys TVs from my living room downstairs which is nice.

huff3566's Review of RokuReviewed on 7/21/18 2:17 PM
I am a new customer and am extremely frustrated that when you try to contact customer support from the website or app, it doesn’t work. When trying to select a reason, nothing comes up and you can’t move forward. I can’t recommend Roku at all if there is no way to get support.
ihaterokusomuch's Review of RokuReviewed on 7/21/18 10:22 PM
If I’d written this review the first time it used the app, it would’ve been five stars. I thought it was so cool. But in the weeks since then, it just simply won’t work. It just says it can’t find the device. Yes, they’re on the same network. The Roku itself is hardwired!! Ugh. No more Roku devices for us. This thing is just painful and pointless.

Why does this app even exist? It can’t find a Roku Ultra or a Streaming Stick both on the same network as my iPhone 8+. Even when you put in the IP address! So why does it even exist. Maybe if Roku could fix the connection issue it could become a useful app, but I can’t tell how useful it would be because it doesn’t work and I have no idea what it can do:-(

So It Would Seem's Review of RokuReviewed on 7/13/18 6:37 AM
I have a TCL Roku TV and it came with a good remote control. But, at night I needed a way to use headphones so that I wouldn’t disturb anyone sleeping. Some ROKU units have the headphone jack built into it, but, not this model. To my delight I found a ROKU app for this tv that has “private listening” and beside the WiFi glitching once in a while it’s a great feature. Very happy with it.
max_siuda's Review of RokuReviewed on 7/13/18 6:13 PM
I use the Roku app for the remote function solely because of our actual Roku remote which is broken. It’s a decent app when it works, but it hardly ever works. It rarely ever connects to the streaming stick on the first try and when you press “retry connecting” it just does the same thing and doesn’t ever connect until you unplug the streaming stick and plug it back in, which requires me to get up and walk all the way across the room, reach behind the tv, and reset it. It may seem like a minor inconvenience, but it gets extremely frustrating when it happens 5 times in an hour all day every day. You could be watching your tv show and not even using the remote but it will randomly disconnect and it DOES NOT reconnect until you restart the streaming stick. I don’t usually write reviews for apps unless I feel strongly about them as I do with this app. It is frustrating to use and needs to be fixed.

When it works, about 25% of the time, it’s just fine. But it typically cannot connect to my Roku which is using the same WiFi as my phone. There are no troubleshooting options and rebooting my Roku doesn’t help. I can’t figure out the common denominator for when it works and doesn’t.

I like the private listening function, since my remote doesn't have it built in. I can use Bluetooth headphones so there are no wires involved. If it goes out of sync, just restart the app and it usually solves the issue. Remote function is great and I like being able to just tap the channel on the app to access it.

I was pleasantly surprised how simple and well it worked. I normally am pretty upset at apps made for secondary hardware cause they tend to be crap or overly complicated.

BeefMaestro's Review of RokuReviewed on 7/12/18 1:41 PM
The app allows you to use your phone as a keyboard to do things such as putting your Netflix password into the tv to log in. I use 1Password to create and manage all my passwords so my Netflix password is very long and complex - not something I want to put in 1 character at a time with the remote. However when you paste a password into the Roku app to send the the tv it tries to send each character one at a time instead of the whole thing all at once. This leads to the password not being sent to the tv properly so I can’t log in. This is very frustrating and I end up just using my chrome cast.

I have a hard time enjoying the app because I have two Roku boxes and it is different and non intuitive to switch between the two. Due to young kids I’ve done away with the real remotes, and switching between boxes should be no more than 2 taps. Yet 5 clicks later it always leaves a bad taste because it should be much simpler.

RoccocoJoe's Review of RokuReviewed on 6/9/18 1:19 PM
I have used this app for a few years. Yes I have always had the same annoyances as many others of having to restart it to reconnect to the Roku, but with one of the recent iOS updates it always says disconnected and can’t find the roku. I have restarted the roku, the iPad and neither helps. I have a VERY strong feeling it is iOS related, because I have four iPads and the problem started on 3 of them that had the update all around the same time. The 4th one is old and can’t do the iOS update and that one is ok. In addition, I have the app on 2 android phones and neither of them has the problem, either. I believe Apple has made some kind of change that has disabled the functionality of this app. I wonder if this was on purpose.

Aside from the incessant opening screen littered with suggestions (you idiots if I wanted to see them I’d look at the goddamn TV screen) and the clunky load times between BASIC tabs, you’re lucky if it connects to your Roku unit on the iPhone X with latest iOS. Every day this week I have had to sit there for an hour hitting reconnect before it inexplicably finds my unit. Stupid garbage app, this is what drives us to install third party programs. I wonder what would happen if I was as terrible at MY job...

steve-of-indiana's Review of RokuReviewed on 6/5/18 3:42 PM
This is an addition issue (see my prior concerns below the separation line. As of the most recent update my iOS devices are unable to connect to my Roku Express. The Roku app gives the generic “Check to make sure your Roku Express is plugged in & on the network.” As of this point I have restarted the Roku by unplugging it & plugging it back in; restarted the network gateway (a combination DSL modem & Wi-Fi router) made sure both the gateway & Roku have had time to become ready (according to Safari on this iPhone the Roku is 192.168.254.19 & the network connection works as the Roku was can stream channels); but the Roku app on multiple devices (including my iPhone SE running iOS 11.4) can no longer connect with the Roku. ======================== I have a couple older devices & a couple of weeks ago both started displaying a pop-up when I start the app saying I need to get a newer version of the app from the App Store but these devices will not run the version of iOS required for the new version of the Roku App. Since I did not change anything on my iPhone or iPod touch, Roku has done something (my belief is the Roku App reaches out to Roku servers) that bricked the Roku App on my devices.

Joe84Mc's Review of RokuReviewed on 6/1/18 8:32 PM
I got this app because my physical remote’s batteries died while I was on vacation and it was after midnight in a town I didn’t know so I didn’t want to go running around looking for new ones. I never did change those batteries once I got home. It’s certainly not perfect; if you leave the app to run something else it has to load back up when you go back to it, the keyboard doesn’t work with every app, and for some reason at times it drains my cell phone battery faster than it does at others. But none of that makes it too difficult or annoying. It doesn’t take away the easy of use and convenience of the app as a whole. I’d recommend anyone using a Roku to get this app.

kevk74's Review of RokuReviewed on 6/1/18 10:02 PM
I might be the idiot and I’ve set up many a WiFi Direct device like a printer or that ugly, inferior “C” word that has no true 10bit H265 HEVC support and terrible audio codec support as well. Let’s not forget no local apps even if a modern smart phone should be able to locate the content to tell it to go fetch. I WAS happy to eventually see Miracast beta supported on Roku though, but angry that my ONLY future choice for a Raw Android phone, the Google Pixel/XL or PIXEL 2/2XL only supported that ugly C word and blocked use of any screen sharing or Intel WiDi/Miracast and is almost useless outside the Roku app and a few app to app casting, and despite Snapdragon 835s native ability, also not support VESA ALT MODE in the Pixel 2/2XL aka USB C to HDMI hardware connector like Apple’s aging H264 lossy lighting to HDMI “Digital AV Adapter”I’ve had to resort to more times than you’d think, especially in hotels and away from home. THAT is where my issues with Roku are... especially when a Roku 3 remote is rock solid and a Premiere + and Roku Ultra Roku are about the most unreliable physical remote I’ve ever used. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to restart the Roku, especially after switching to my a phone Roku App because the physical remote then unpairs and refuses to re-pair until I either use the cell phone app and go into Remote Settings and ask to pair or unplug and restart the Roku and remove the battery cover and feverishly push on the pair button while sometimes resorting to taking out a battery or spinning the batteries until I finally get a pairing response. The ISSUE is I’ve had times were under a new network, I couldn’t manage to get the physical remote to pair and I SWORE I could pick a WiFi Direct Roku Signal and manage to sign in the box to the new SSID with the a cell phone but only thing that saved me was I happen to be a techie carrying a 15ft Ethernet cable and plugged in the Ultra to the router and accomplished getting the box to login and use my phone app while my physical remote lay useless until I could get into Remote Settings and request a pair. Maybe I am wrong, but I spent an hour thinking I could set up WiFi Direct without a physical remote and maybe even leave it at home when I travel. Unfortunately most people have little reason to toss their 1080 Smart TVs (especially in guest rooms) outside maybe a family room 4K TV upgrade so there is no H265 support, so I’m forced to bring a Roku Ultra, Premiere + or that new scary $69.99 stick that replaced the Premiere + but stories of overheating and inability to get it to power or (despite claims of improved antennas) connect to WiFi at all, so for now I’ll stick to a near perfect Ultra 4640 and my optical port to avoid needing a new $600 receiver with HDCP 2.2 support. All I ask is a way to connect the box without a physical remote when let’s face it, despite TWO ways to communicate with the box, it can’t even do either well and I’m constantly wishing my Roku 3 did H265 b/c it has been rock solid and the remote as well.

Constantly have to reboot the Roku, my phone, and the router to use this app. 😠

He head phones Option does not appear to listen without disturbing others.

After three days my Roku tv still won’t connect I’m switching to a more efficient tv company and I will most likely have my friends do the same. This is horrible 😤

The app has its ups and downs but for the overall use and purpose of the app it serves its purpose and is a great way to stop losing the remote
Aarion Shadell's Review of RokuReviewed on 5/31/18 1:31 AM
The remote connects when it wants to and I keep having to delete and reinstall to make it work again

You can switch channels and pause fast forward; everything you would do with the remote but with your phone. This app seems to work so much easier than the remote.

Works really good
Thorgi corgi's Review of RokuReviewed on 5/30/18 3:47 AM
My only issue is with the private listening, there is a lag, but 💛 how it has voice search and the keyboard!

Title says it all. I downloaded all the ROKU apps and this one steals the show
Teenyowl's Review of RokuReviewed on 5/30/18 2:08 AM
I use to love the app until the advertising updates ruined the app. It takes a RIDICULOUS amount of time to load. Guess I will check out the alternatives now.

I thought I could watch the Roku channels in this app but apparently not. Bummer!

This app is the best and never fails me unless I don’t have WiFi
Phimuangel's Review of RokuReviewed on 5/29/18 5:04 PM
The app is so awesome! Especially with the remote feature, you don’t have to replace batteries all the time. I love our Roku anyways but this makes it even better!!! 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

They need add a feature where if you go to work 0r go somewhere and forget to turn off your tv, you could use your phone to turn if off even if you weren’t at home.
niemann4210's Review of RokuReviewed on 5/28/18 3:32 PM
Instead of buttons to press for volume control, how about a slider? The buttons are really inconsistent and take forever to change the volume. It would be quicker to slide the volume up and down.

Would be great if I didn’t have to constantly uninstall/reinstall it to get it to connect and stay connected to my device. Extremely annoying.

This ‘feature’ is SO annoying.
Alio64's Review of RokuReviewed on 5/27/18 9:06 PM
I really like how there is an app for it. I always tend to lose the small remote so I’m happy I can use the app on my phone. Also I just really enjoy the set up of the tv and stuff
Nanasofia27's Review of RokuReviewed on 4/16/19 8:29 PM
I like it so much
klynncass's Review of RokuReviewed on 4/16/19 8:29 PM
The only thing worse than the Roku stick is having to use the app to control it. The remote worked for about 6 months and died. I’ve used the app on a Windows phone, 2 iPhones, 3 android phones and 2 iPads. It’s slow to respond, if at all. It’s always been a hassle to connect, but now it won’t recognize the stick. Looks like there’s a Firestick in my future.

Vee737's Review of RokuReviewed on 4/16/19 8:29 PM
I have owned a Roku since they first hit the market... Let me tell you, I love the service, loved the controls and when the control app came out, I was ecstatic! loved the app. Love it even more when it works. Turns out, that even when I am logged to my Roku account, connected to my WiFi, standing 5 feet from the router with the Roku device on. Please fix that bug, I’ve only gotten that issue with the newer updates....
Firestick123's Review of RokuReviewed on 4/16/19 8:29 PM
This device simply does not work. It reboots every five minutes and will not allow me to add any channels. I have bought and returned two of these things today and support is non existent. Consider purchasing a different device.

Love it; my dog chewed up my original remote; without the app I would so devistated. Thanks.

It was working but now it constantly crashes, loses connection to the tv. My WiFi is solid as no other devices in the house have connectivity issues. Please fix.
desertratttt's Review of RokuReviewed on 4/16/19 8:29 PM
Works great most of the time. Some little hiccups here and there like won’t always connect or to tv on. Sometimes I have to use the remote in lieu of the app to get tv turned on. Otherwise very nice and simple app.

I cannot get remote on my iPhone to discover my TV. I downloaded on an android and it discovered it just fine. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled it on my iPhone and I am still having the same problem. Very un happy
Never buy tickets here ever!'s Review of RokuReviewed on 4/16/19 8:29 PM
It’s awesome and the app is perfect! I can control it with my phone and at night when I’m watching tv and my wife is sleeping I can plug my headphones to my phone and set the app to private listening so she doesn’t hear any noise and I can enjoy the movie on my giant tv but listen with my headphones on my iPhone! It’s awesome!

Still no private listening for roku 3. Remote looses battery power after only a few uses of private listening. Very disappointing. Won't be buying anymore roku products.
