    I just love this app so much when I first started using it! But now, everything has changed. When this app was updated my device kept on freezing all of a sudden. That happened to me like 6 months, and then I re-Installed this app. When It finished Installing it kept on freezing but even worse. I don't know what's happening, and I even tried to contact you but no answer. Please fix this! Thank you.

    Liked the headphone option, but it's just too glitchy. It drops the Bluetooth connection at random, locks up, suddenly blares out of the speakers when you needed silence, says there's no wifi connection, won't connect to accounts, have to connect to TV repeatedly. With my frustration level at this point, 3 starts is too much, but the Fire TV app doesn't even try to integrate your phone's headphones, so I'm giving Roku the benefit of the don't. Clean up the bugs and it would be great.

  3. guest-avatar

    Won't work keep giving an ip address not supported error but I have double and triple checked and the system ip address is correct. Since I cannot see what ip address that the app is picking up there is not way to fix it. This is a common error and is in their help documentation with dozens of peope asking the same question but has not been answered. Some of the posts are several months old.

    This app is pretty slow and bloated. I wish Roku would release a separate solo remote control app that just works and runs more quickly. This app often forgets where the TV is and can't find it even though I assigned it a fixed IP so it's always at the same address. I don't want any of the extra free content or whatever. I just want a software remote control.

  5. guest-avatar

    App will not connect to TV the majority of the time unless the TV is restarted. They are both on the same network but the app replies that the TV is off. I generally reach for this app when I can't find my remote and am in the middle of watching something and want to lower or raise the volume. It's lacking ability in connecting makes this app pretty much worthless for what I wanted it for which was the remote functionality.

    Half of the time it works, half the time it doesnt. It's handy to have when I lose my remote, but is constantly glitching. If I needed the app for more than a few moments at a time, like if I were to have lost my remote completely, I'd find it to be a nuisance. Which makes sense.. As a company, trying to sell products. It would be wiser to make an app more annoying than buying a new remote. In that same breath.. It's tolerable enough to ignore and laugh about to myself.

  7. guest-avatar

    I've been using the Roku app as the primary remote for my Roku Premiere+ for the last year. It does most of the basics just fine, but also leaves a lot to be desired. A number of users mention having to reconnect at app launch. Same here. It's frustrating. Also, there's no reason for the app to not have native TV power and volume controls. My physical remote uses HDMI to toggle power and control volume. The app should have the same ability. Other than these key things, it works as you'd expect.

    Private listening feature does not work very well. With this app you're supposed to be able to watch TV with headphones so as not to disturb others (such as my sleeping wife). However the audio cuts in and out constantly. I've tried it with Bluetooth headphones, wired headphones, and no headphones at all. Sounds does come out of my phone but still cuts in and out. Very annoying. I would give this app 4 or 5 stars if this one feature worked. Please fix because all I have is Roku TVs.

  9. guest-avatar

    Absolutely Love It!!! Use it every time we watch TV. It's better than the physical remote that came with it!! Plus it has a bunch of cool features including using your phone as a discreet listening device so as not to disturb others. This is one of the best apps in the store for the best streaming device on the market!

    YOU NEED TO GET THIS APP RIGHT NOW IF KIDS DON'T STOP PLAYING FROZEN 2. I'm SO happy that this app works. My sister's play Frozen 2 over and over and over, as well as Just Dance; they love to blast the volume through the entire house when I try to study. But now I have control over the TV, no matter where they hide the remote, because my phone will always be the remote. I will tell them 5 to 6 times to turn it down and they ignore me, that's when I click the home button on this apps remote.

    I love my Roku Ultimate. I have some hearing loss and being able to plug my headphone in the remote as well as being able to use my phone to operate and use my headphones to hear better and more of a surround sound effect via phone headphone plug or through the Roku plug. The only complaint that I do have is that it uses a lot juice and the AA batteries doesnt last long. And purchase of batteries can get a little pricey especially with me using them most of the time with music apps and TV apps.

  12. guest-avatar

    Everything with Roku has been super seamless. I love using my phone as a remote in times when I'm lazy to locate the actual remote. I also like how using both remotes interchangeably doesn't have an impact on the performance of either. No lagging, no downtime so far. I have to say this is my fave purchase so far this year hands down.

  13. guest-avatar

    Please make a damn option to "forget" or delete a tv from the connected TVs list because it always wants to connect to every other TV in this house for some reason and is being a real pain in the ass because it won't connect to my tv or even give me the option to. Instead it thinks it should keep trying the tv in my parents room so now I've turned on their tv a half dozen times at 4 in the morning. You'd think any company with common sense would know to put this option... just like bluetooth spe

  14. guest-avatar

    I'm a Chromecast guy, but this Roku is really nice. I like having all my apps in one spot but sometimes I start watching something and change my mind or am not sure if it's something I want to watch so I want to surf other options while I watch and Roku can't do that. But other than that it is tied for the best streaming device that is on the market. P.S. I'm a Android guy so the apple tv don't count.

  15. guest-avatar

    One of my favorite apps. Does everything the remote does and better. My favorite feature is not on the remote. It is the keyboard! Searches are so much easier than the Up-down-left-right keys on the remote. The only feature I would wish for is to be able to turn off and on the TV and control the volume. The remote doesn't do that. 😊📺 I moved to Samsung Galaxy A10e with Android 9. Everything works the same! 👍😊😁

  16. guest-avatar

    The remote works okay. Sometimes has a lag. What I really hate is the private listening skips like a scratched CD!! There's no point in trying to listen privately when you miss every 3rd or 4th word. I know what you're thinking, slow Wi-Fi right? Not so. I get 88-100 mbps. In fact most of my apps work fine. The bug is in the Roku app. If the tech guys can elliminate the skips in private listening, I'll gladly change the rating to 5 stars. Until then, I see an uninstall in the near future!!

  17. guest-avatar

    It's easy, fast, and practical. Works well on my ROKU 3 and ROKU Stick and can easily change between devices. Haven't had any issues or mishaps with the app or my devices. I love ROKU because it's never let me down and I get all the entertainment I want with no intruptions or bs. ROKU is Great. I recommend it to everyone, get a ROKU!

  18. guest-avatar

    Roku app is great. Especially since the REMOTE quit working, & I can use the app to use my Roku. Was going to order another remote, but it says that some don't work with it (why?). App is great for everything when it comes to streaming Roku, YouTube, & Sporting events! Thanks! Keep up the great job you're doing!!

  19. guest-avatar

    I absolutely love this app! Works just as well as the roku remote that came with my tv!! I lost my remote and then downloaded this app and i was amazed at how well it worked! The volume button that normally works to control my phone, controls the volume for the television as long as the app is in use! You eony regret downloading this app and will absolutely love it!

    I have a Galaxy phone, and it works great. I'm able to pause the movie even if I'm not in the room. Also a great feature I like, is that if I don't have to dig around to look for the remote. I can have the remote stay in one place but I can still pause and search and do whatever with the TV with the remote on my phone. I always have my phone so it's actually much more convenient. I love this feature and thank you for having it whoever you are

  21. guest-avatar

    The Roku device itself is fine, and up until recently the app was good as well. However, the app has now started freezing as it opens, it will not respond, and has to be shut down; if the app is immediately opened again, it works. Not sure why this is happening, been using it on Android 10 for a while now, but this issue has only just started.

    Connection to the TV is sporadic. On most days, it connects, and all is well (though there really should be a way to power on the TV with the app), and then on some days, you cannot connect to the TV at all. Nothing works. It's now been ~24 hours since I was last able to use the app, so the times where it cannot connect can be lengthy and occurs without warning.

  23. guest-avatar

    The app will never work for me. Tells me to make sure the device and phone are on the same Wifi and it would continuously load and never connect. Try to do it manually and it always says it's the wrong IP address although it's the right one. I have good Wifi, it shouldn't be a problem and yet it is. Tried to do it again couple months later and still the same results. Not worth trying again at this point.

  24. guest-avatar

    At first had issues with the app never wanting to connect to my tv, I would have to close the app and remove it from my recent app list then try again and that would usually work. But one day I got tired of all that. I deleted the app reinstalled it and since then not one single issue has came up.

  25. guest-avatar

    Awful app. Constantly force closing. Cant connect to tv. Loses connection multiple times a day. Once the app force closes, good luck reconnecting. Sometimes the app freezes and completely freezes the device you're using ie my phone has gone to a black screen within the roku app and unable to use it for 15 minutes. Edit: After writing this review, the app stopped being able to locate any devices at all. I'm forced to uninstall and reinstall every other day in order for the app to function.

  26. guest-avatar

    The best part about the remote feature is you can use it without pointing at the TV and the worst part is, it doesn't automatically connect when you open the app. The intended purpose of ME downloading this is to avoid having to use the remote. Unfortunately, having to connect the app each time, I use the remote to turn on TV then hope that it connects. The glitches are more annoying than using the actual remote. It's a neat and convenient app when it works.

    The app is good for watching movies and TV shows (not real sure about live TV though), but it won't let you watch the channels you added from the Channel Store; which I think is a real bummer cause you would need to download the specific app to watch and not all apps are of good quality.

  28. guest-avatar

    Good when it works, but there's an annoying bug. Every now and then it won't detect my TV, and I'll either have to close the app, force stop it, and even sometimes uninstall and reinstall for it to find my TV. Other than that it works great but it's very annoying when it doesn't work.

  29. guest-avatar

    It's great when it works, the private listening feature is particularly useful and just what I was looking for. Unfortunately, it's buggy as hell and does not work most of the time. With private listening on the audio will often lag and sputter so much that eventually my phone will disconnect from the tv. No problems with connectivity when private listening is off, but that feature is basically my only use for the app. Sometimes sputtering audio will keep playing long after the video's paused.

    You keep asking me to rate your app when you have not fixed the issues. This app shuts down so often it is really annoying. The original Roku remote control was the worst ever. Some disabled / regular people can't use it due to the placement of tiny volume/mute buttons, which are difficult. & This 'Closing app is just as frustrating. It would be ideal if we could access the basic functions without having to unlock device every time. LIKE VOLUME. But doesn't matter cause the app keeps closing!!

  31. guest-avatar

    The first few months were fine. But now they're ad's popping up. Even when on my video games in HDMI2. It's seriously annoying and unnecessary. I already purchased YOUR product... why on earth are you FORCING ad's on me (especially when I'm trying to use the force to kill evil Sith Lords) ? That's just a 100% sure way for me to never purchase another Roku item again. Deleting and returning to my trustee good old remote control.

  32. guest-avatar

    I use this app primarily for the private listening, and get quite frustrated at how often it skips/cuts out the sound. Sometimes its every few seconds, other times it's fine for 15-30 minutes. I lose complete connection at least once in an hours time. The app, when working, is awesome though. And maybe the issues I have are related to my wifi connection? But other apps do not do this.

  33. guest-avatar

    Leaves much to be desired... Constantly have to reconnect, then once and if it does, the app will kick you out of the remote portion of the app! Also, if the TV is turned off overnight, the app will fail to connect to the TV. Must unplug and plug back in before attempting to sync with the app. (Dog ate physical remote, if curious why, replacement on the way). Don't usually leave reviews, but the amount of money TCL has, failures of this kind are ridiculous.

  34. guest-avatar

    Me and my family loved the Roku, plenty of free shows, movies, reality TV, cartoons ECT. The bonus is the extra stuff you can subscribe to at a very low price. Turns out to be the cheapest non cable bill I'll ever have to pay and that's to get beneficial stuff! You know like recording, live television, and the best of the best of reality TV shows.

  35. guest-avatar

    This is one of my favorite apps. I always lose my remotes and the roku app always works perfectly from literally anywhere in my house. So For example if I am on my back porch I can press play and my kids show will start. It's also really cool that you can stream the roku channel on your device with the app. I'm still kicking myself for buying a replacement remote last year before I knew about this app. It's so easy to use my three-year-old uses it to control his TV. Don't change a thing!

  36. guest-avatar

    It is a very good app, but it would be perfect if it could connect to a roku tv without wifi connection to both. In case you don't have a remote. If it did it would have a lot more use for people trying to connect. You cannot connect the tv to new wifi without a remote, and at that point the app is only useful when you dont want to find your remote.

    Be carefully for double billing, Roku told me my subscription to Hulu was not valid anymore even though it was. So I hit renew subscription through Roku and now I have been double billed for 2 months with no response from Roku when I contacted customer support. I filed a PayPal claim and Roku responded to them saying there was no double bills but didn't say how to go about getting a refund since Hulu was getting paid twice. I will be looking elsewhere when devices need replaced,

  38. guest-avatar

    I have to restart the Roku every time I want to connect it to the app. It also never lets me connect manually to avoid the restart. I'm entering the right IP address and both devices are on the same network. I've always had this issue, iOS or Android. It's quite disappointing.

  39. guest-avatar

    Good app. Three stars because the sound keeps getting cut off. If they fix that issue it would be much better obviously. Update: It seems they have fixed the issue with the audio going off every few minutes when using apps like YouTube, Hulu, Netflix and others. Much more enjoyable to use now. Thank you Roku! :)

  40. guest-avatar

    It worked pretty well until this last update and now the app doesn't completely close. I'm pretty sure it turned my TV on at 6am this morning since it's just me. Would be great if they could fix this. There's no reason for me to walk around at work with my Roku app open. A couple of months later, the app now closes but the connection keeps dropping and the private listening keeps disconnecting.

  41. guest-avatar

    Was fine until I used it recently & it's been updated, so a different look etc & it works really badly!Pressing the direction arrows doesn't make the point move most of the time. If you swipe it up like it says it swipes waaaaaay up instead of one place. It makes your phone screen stay on all the time when you have it on, & when you switch the screen to dark, your connection gets lost. Pain in the neck! Please put it back to what it was before when it worked.My real remote broke ages ago.

    Roku is the best all around TV and movie app to use. It's great because it caters to everything from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and so many entertainment apps in between. Their newest box let's me view content in 720 all the way up to 4K. One of my favorite aspects is the fact that the remote can control my TV power and volume... And I could use my phone as a remote when I can't find the actual one.

    Definitely dig the "use my phone as the remote" feature, makes typing in searches A Lot easier. Also I love being able to just pick what I want to purchase at the touch of a button whether in the app on my phone or the app on my Roku T.V. and I'm automatically billed for it without having to type in my card info everytime. At first I was skeptical. But now I think the change is good

    I have six Rokus at my house so a universal remote that works with all of them is a must have. Haven't had any issues with the app so far been using it a long time. Changing my review from a 5 to a 3 cause the app hasn't been working lately when I try to connect to my Roku devices.

  46. guest-avatar

    Love that the app remote control picks up both TVs. I also like that the featured movies/shows being advertised can pop up on the TV with one tap. Only one downfall that keeps me from 5 gets a bit frustrating when the app drops which TV I'm operating and I have to manually re-select the TV I'm currently using the remote control feature for. Fix that and its 5 Stars!😁

  47. guest-avatar

    lxx_lPhoebel_xxl Playz


    Okay, so I have a few complaints. First off, the TV should be able to be turned off while connecting, otherwise what if people lost their controller? (Me.) Second off, even if the TV is on, it wont connect, and note that it has connected first try before. Until you get this fixed its 2 stars

  48. guest-avatar

    Works Wonderful! Doesnt even need a remote, I need is my phone. Only thing I dont like is I can only turn on/off my TCL Roku TV. I cant turn on/off my other tv that has a Roku Device, but other functions work great!!(: You'll get a five star if you fix that easy simple problem! Shanks...

  49. guest-avatar

    I'm working on option of getting rid of my satellite company..who is constantly dinging me for misc charges and always raising my monthly cost that I signed up far I feel this Roku is the perfect tool that will make it possible. I LOVE IT AND ALL THE OPTIONS AVAILABLE TO ME. Such variety, I could always have something good to watch always and my favorites are available as well.

  50. guest-avatar

    Outside of the remote, the app is pointless. It's ridiculous that the app isn't the same as the streaming stick. That is, if you have a tablet and use roku for everything, to access all the content you have in roku, you instead have to download each provider separately, an annoyance and what essentially makes roku useless. Y'all need to come up with an android streaming stick or provide full functionality on the app.

  51. guest-avatar

    Worthless. I own a "real" non-RFC1918 Class C IP subnet, have for almost 30 years. It won't run on it, and there's no override. I am not readdressing my entire LAN, so it's a useless app and reduces the value of an otherwise nice piece of equipment.

  52. guest-avatar

    The app keeps disconnecting from the Wi-Fi. when it connects to the Wi-Fi it searches and cannot always find the last room that it was connected too. The app takes forever to find the two Roku devices I have connected to the Wi-Fi. Sometimes the app disconnects from the Wi-Fi even though I'm trying to control my Roku. The only good thing about the Roku app is that it replaces the Roku remotes that are missing.

  53. guest-avatar

    I downloaded the roku app just incase our remote gets misplaced, but mainly for the private listening. But I turn it on with headphones connected, it works for 1 second and cuts back off. Please fix this. If this feature worked well, I would probably give 5 stars. Please please please fix this bug!

  54. guest-avatar

    I lost my Roku remote so downloaded this app to control our Roku TV. It worked great until I turned off my TV. Now that I want to turn my TV on again, the app tells me it cannot connect to my TV until I turn it on. Well, I can't. That's what YOU were supposed to do.

  55. guest-avatar

    A+ easy to use. Great app to have when you can't find the remote LOL! And when you're signing up renew subscriptions so you can use a keyboard or voice to text enter all your information plus the media casting is pretty handy also I only wish it had screen mirroring and it would be the perfect app!

  56. guest-avatar

    Will not find devices after update. This app used to be very useful as a remote control for my Roku devices. Now it is completely useless and I am planning on uninstalling it if it does not improve with the next updates. Roku has destroyed a perfectly good app. I am so disappointed.

  57. guest-avatar

    The only remaining reason I have this app (private listening function) doesn't work, idea behind it is great, when it did work it was great...but now the setting lasts for a whole twenty seconds before it just stops functioning and whatever I was watching is now blaring through the TV speakers again. Will update review when/if this is ever fixed

  58. guest-avatar

    Great app! The functionality i want from this app is streaming app integration that allows the user to browse all of the apps on the Roku Tv with the same ease as browsing the Roku streaming media, pick a program from the app, and launch the media directly. Integrate this and you would greatly improve the value of this app.

    Only casts pictures, music, and other media files stored on your device, not an app playing video, so this is useless (this can't be used as a replacement for a Chromecast or Fire). It can be used as a dumb remote replacement, or to access the channel store, but big deal. Features for private listening, voice search, or remote typing were not to be found.

    I just want a plain remote for my ONE TV! I don't like having to reconnect to the device every time I open the app, nor do I like having to scroll through all the other features and popups and menus and ads. I JUST WANT A REMOTE!!! Gave 2 Stars because it's the only app that even recognizes my TV and works.

    I use this app a lot since I find myself losing my remote quite often and if I'm watching something scary I can use my headphones for a more immersive sound. The problem is that when I do use private listening it will just disconnect randomly and with seemingly no reason for it to. If you can fix that I will change to 5 stars.

  62. guest-avatar

    This app is pretty cool. Really have only one issue and that is when I open the text window and press the arrow(enter) button via Google onboard keyboard. What I expect to happen is the keyboard to disappear. If I tap anywhere outside the keyboard disappears. When you have time would you please and add a "X" box. Thanks in advance. MICHAEL

  63. guest-avatar

    If I could make use out of the private listening feature it would have been a 5 star rating for sure! I can't seem to figure out how to use it and if I even can use it in the way I hoped to use it. At night when my family is sleeping and I don't want to bother them with the TV volume too loud I thought that I could nix that problem with the private listening feature but doesn't seem to work that way. Without that 1 issue 5 stars would be there without question!😞

    The app has come to the rescue more than once when there's something wrong with the normal remote, or if we can't find it. However, the app, even just the remote, would not function when our internet went out, even though both devices (phone and tv) were still connected to the same wifi network. The app has difficulty reconnecting to the TV if I come back to it after some time has passed. I also don't like that the TV turns on just from opening the app, since I may not even be in the same room.

    This app was the best I have reviewed. I love it, works great, and I love the remote feature so I can connect to my TV. I recommend this app for whoever is reading this. I lost my remote again so I just used this app until I found it. It also works as a great mini TV that you can pack around. That's to the wonderful creators!

    I just recently downloaded app and since using it. My devices will not work properly. I tried removing the app from my phone but my device is still not working right. I never had any issues until i installed this app. Worst decision ever. Looking like im going need new roku boxes in 2 of my rooms.

    Was charged $7 for a Disney+ subscription on here. I did not ever select to pay for a subscription. I never got Disney+ through Roku because I already have it. You charged me money then when I submitted a refund request because I never went on it and I DID NOT SUBSCRIBE THROUGH ROKU. They told me no and there's nothing they can do. This is HORRIBLE customer service charging customers for things they DID NOT BUY just to make some extra money. Complete BS.

    I absolutely love this app on my phone. [ The Roku stick actually sucks. I get so aggravated with it because it chews up batteries and you have to be close to the TV] The app works great no problems. Also a great plus for me is, since my husband and I work different hours -- I can cut the volume off of the tv plug my earbuds into my phone and can watch a show or movie on the TV without waking him up. It doesn't cut your TV on or off. But I love this app!!!

    I love this app so much you can use keyboard and speaker with out paying and it comes up with the channels and you press it and it comes on TV its amazing I really love it I really do recommend it and that the only problem is that the thing that needs to be fixed is that when I go onto the app the thing is that it is not connected to my box and it's really annoying and my now TV box is on and it takes ages to load that's the only problem but except for that it's pretty good I do recommend it

  70. guest-avatar

    It's good enough (when you lose your remote) but I have to periodically uninstall and reinstall the app because it will stop picking up my Roku and forget about putting the speaker through your phone 🤣 but its great when one of my kids drop the remote into the black hole that is somewhere located within my home lmao

    (No, you don't have/need to point it at your TVI am new to this, and I am glad that I got this tv, now I can be very warm and or cool to look for things, and typing is hella easy, I can save batteries, but that is why I also got ultimate lithium aaa batteries, last long, but it's easy for lazy people like me to use the on-phone remote 😆

  72. guest-avatar

    I haven't had issues others have had with sound or glitching but then I've only had it a month. What chaps my arse is I'm paying practically the same for my favorite channels as I was with Dish Network! The only REAL plus is I dont lose signal every time it storms. So 4 stars.

    Downloaded this app to accentuate the Roku device. I have hooked up to my TV. Little did. I know it does not help whatsoever is like a secondary remote nor can I use it to find program YouTube to my phone to the Roku device? Can anyone please refer me to? A website to help with my Roku questions.

  74. guest-avatar

    Works exceptionally well on my phone. S 10+. I do want to mention if you have lost your remote as I had. The Roku device must be connected to the same wifi as your phone already. You can't use the remote app to hook device to internet.

  75. guest-avatar

    When something's free, you can't expect a lot and Roku isn't an exception to the rule. Many old movies and they seldom update their movies. I had to think hard about it being a 3 even but i did so because they provide access to some really good Christian movies.

    Private listening does not work. Private listening works fine on the physical remote. But doesn't work with the app, which is a real bummer Otherwise the remote app works fine. But private listening was one of the major reasons I got this roku, so only 2 stars.

  77. guest-avatar

    It isn't great right now. Seems a little bit behind, a little laggy.I wish that I could do more with it, and I don't even know what that would be, but I just feel like it's very bare-bones and it doesn't feel very user interactive. Having said that, it does what it's supposed to do as far as the remote goes.

    I love a lot of old mystery Shows. I've been able to watch Major Crimes, Without a trace, and I really love the old, Cold Case Files( which is my favorite). So many great shows, that I love to go from show to show on here. Keep up the good work and I'll continue watching

    I subscribe to many channels on my ROKU. I've been using Roku for 10 years. I've only had to call customer support twice and when I did they were outstanding and I spoke to a real human immediately. About a year ago I unsubscribed to cable television. I have everything I need with my Roku. I love it. The only streaming difficulty I've ever had is with Amazon Prime. On my Roku. I've never had that trouble with any other channel so I'm assuming it's Amazon Prime's issue and not Roku.

    Best app for your Roku and it also has a private listing mode. That means you can listen to audio from a streaming channel with any bluetooth device that you have connected to your phone. No advertisements on it so you have no interruptions when using the app!

    Haven't experienced any crashes on my Pixel 4XL since the last few updates. I do wish the devs would fix the issue where TCL 6 Series panels show in this app that they're in "low power mode" when displaying HDR content. I'd give a 5 star if that were to be fixed in a future update

  82. guest-avatar

    I constantly lose my remote so this comes in handy. I dont really use it for anything since I dont actually watch the telly often, but it seems fo have other features. If I'm correct, you can browse on your device and then stream it to your telly.

  83. guest-avatar

    Absolutely love the Roku app for remote feature. I don't normally rate apps but when I discovered that I can exit out of my program playing on the tv in the living room while I'm laying in bed, I had to rate it 5/5. I wasn't wanting to get up and shut off the tv because I was cozy in bed and thought I'd take a chance on doing it remotely (pun intended) and it actually worked and I'm just cozy as ever in bed without having to hear the tv playing in the living room.

  84. guest-avatar

    I love the app. Things could be better. It's bad at having to connect to the TV every time you get on the app, then it going back to the home screen from the remote then you have to go back to the remote once it's connected. Sometimes it's annoying, but in all honesty I dont even know where my TV remote is because everyone in the home has the roku app on their phone!

    I didn't know that my Televison came with it I thought that I would have to pay for it, when I found out how to work it... I Love it so Much. I enjoy whatching the olden sitcoms also. Roko where have you, the best of all times. Now when the Famiy comes over it like a time machine. Memories for my Grown Children and my Grands & Great Grands enjoy it too Thanks Roku 💯 💖

    Ease of Use. When your remote acts up (quits working) this app makes it possible to continue using the ROKU stick. Another advantage is when searching for a show/movie, the app pulls up your keyboard so you don't have to use your remote to move the pointer!!

    It's really convenient to be able to use my phone as a remote. However, sometimes the app "forgets" which Roku it's connected to and takes a long time to reconnect (or sometimes just fails to find it altogether).

  88. guest-avatar

    I am sick and tired of this. This app used to work perfectly but for some reason it will no longer connect to my Roku device. It is on the same network and I tried doing it manually to no avail! Someone please figure out this massive issue before i lose my freaking mind. 😠😠😠 Update: i recently got a new phone as a gift and decided to try this app again. This only confims its an issue with the app its self. What the heck.

  89. guest-avatar

    it technically works most of the time, but man is it INFURIATING. it'll delay button presses out of nowhere, become unresponsive, even sometimes tell me there's no wifi when there clearly is. perhaps the most annoying aspect is when i'll try to connect to the tv and then i'll press the remote option and ... nothing. screen just goes black and app becomes unresponsive, the only way to fix it is to close the app and start it again. REALLY, REALLY ANNOYING.

    Love the amazing Channel selections especially the old comedies as The Nanny, Bewitched and hopefully I'll find others like the 80's Love Boat & Fantasy Island, I Dream of Jeannie, Gilligan's Island, The Monkees, The Partridge Family, Brady Bunch, Three's Company etc.

    Love it!!! Had a different Roku app. Found out it wasn't from Roku. I deleted that one instantly & downloaded this one and this Roku app is so much better by far. This app is so beyond better that many times I'll use the app on my phone instead of using the remote.

  92. guest-avatar

    Good app! I use it for my bedroom TV that's hooked up to a Roku box. And I use it for my living room TV that has Roku included inside the TV. It's very convenient. Especially since I can misplacea remote quicker than my phone.

  93. guest-avatar

    Very handy, especially if you lose your remote or you're tired of replacing the batteries constantly. EDIT: You no longer have to have the TV already on to use the app's remote, thank you for adding the feature!!

  94. guest-avatar

    Even after I return my device to the home page, exit the remote in the app, close the app, and turn off my TV, the app continues consuming power all night, so I wake up to find the phone battery that was full when I went to bed is half empty in the morning. I have to manually force stop the app in the Android settings if I want to prevent this. What a hassle!

    Good... ISH. It could be made better as I frequently have to open the remote a good three or four times before I can actually get the app to stop closing. If I ma age to get it open on the first try then when I click the remote tab, I get a blank grey screen. Then starts the back and forth until I can see the remote. If it weren't for the fact we can't find the remote and have an inkling suspicion the ferret has a paw in its disappearance, I wouldn't need this app. YOUR APP NEEDS FIXING.

  96. guest-avatar

    Works like it's supposed to. I'm currently only using it for the remote feature, but it works great! By the way, do NOT factory reset your roku before using the remote function because it needs to be already setup before you can use the remote. I lost my physical roku remote, but thankfully someone else in the house had a remote I could use to get mine setup again so I could start using the remote feature on this app.

  97. guest-avatar

    Writing this on my phone that used to connect to my Roku but won't anymore. Kind of defeats the purpose of the app if I have to find the remote somewhere. At least my phone connects to google. Otherwise I couldn't give this app 1 star...

  98. guest-avatar

    This?? ... this app is FREE $!$! Roku TV.... I didnt know at the time, an excellent product 4free👯🙋✌ Your app ?? I love it the best outta ALL the Roku bla not FREE Thank you..

This is the most ive ever written even tho they were just as good. Yet¬TVs are investments. For My tv; THIS IS THE BEST AIO. EVA‼

    Good app, but it keeps forgetting my remote when i switch to another app, even for just a second. Makes it hard to switch and pause what I'm watching quickly. This still forgets my remote really quickly, usually within 5 minutes after switching to another app, as of 2-6-20. Even got a new phone, Samsung Galaxy S10e, but no difference in app performance.

    I first started using this app on 12/10/18. It works well just like the original remote. Is very handy to have on the phone as a second remote. The app has even a voice control feature to use mostly with the Roku Channel.
