Reviews From google play store

Excellent 👍 I am so impressed by how incredibly simple this app is to use. It is extremely responsive (unlike my Roku remote which isn't, and is a battery gobbler) You don't even have to point it at the Roku box. I have the free version and so far I have not seen one ad come up, only a request to try a paid version, but there's no pressure. I just hope they don't try to "revise" this app. It is an excellent app "as is."

Just like the description says, just add the app and within 30 seconds, maybe less you have a remote. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the voice operation and channel buttons option cost a little money. Honestly tho this app works 100% like the factory remote and that doesn't cost a dime. Kudos to the creators, you have a winner. 😁

This is a great substitute for a remote especially when you're in a hurry and your phone's in your hand. The only bad thing, and why I didn't give it five stars, is for some reason it keeps disappearing from my Android. I look for it it's gone it's not even installed. I don't know if it's because it's the free vers., but the whole app just disappears from my cell phone.

Bought the pro features for $3.99. Volume and TV controls don't work. I get a "Can't connect to your Roku" when trying to use the volume keys. TV and channel inputs don't work AT ALL. Troubleshooting tips didn't help either. Really disappointed that I paid EXTRA for a feature I can't even use.

It did pick up my device right away and the directional pad worked beautifully, but when I paid extra to get to use my phone's keyboard for searching it didn't work at all. That was the main feature I was looking for.

Loved this app when I had the roku attachment. Then moved in with my boyfriend and connected to his smart roku tv, worked for about a week and nothing. Feel like I wasted $4 on all the extra stuff you add on when it only works for a week.

This works exactly like the remote that comes with the device. I spent 10 minutes just messing with my daughter with this while she was trying to navigate roku. Great fun. Anyway, it's a good extra remote for the TV and works perfectly every time..

It's good in some aspects and bad in others. The power button turns my TV on then off. Not sure why but if I turn it on really quick and manage to click a channel button, it will work. Volume button works great and so do the channel buttons. Only issue is with the power button.

I'm always losing my roku remote. Now I keep the remote in a safe place and use my phone instead. My phone is usually never lost and easier to locate if misplaced then the remote, so I love this app.

I love it was really suprised how well it works on my roku box mine is one of the very first roku boxes when they first came out. This app works very well thank you very much !!!!

Downloaded the app. Opened it up. Automatically connected and just worked. No need for the remote to program it which is great cause I didn't plan a head to have the app before the remote broke.

Works well, really handy and didn't have to do any setup or configuration but there's no power on/off or volume control. I mean I don't mind sending one of the kids to turn it on or up on the tv lol... but still.

I just got my roku but first thing was to download the remote to my phone. My grandkids are always running of with the remote so this will be awesome. Ive only used for one night but it was great.

Worked great the first time I used it (after buying the pro feature for $1.99 for power and volume). Second time I used it, I had to delete and reinstall it to get it to work. Now, it doesn't work at all.

it does what it needs to, but it's complete bs that i have to P A Y for it to turn the TV off/on or adjust the volume. uninstalling as soon as i get my replacement remote tomorrow 🙄

I love this app. It works perfect like it says it does especially because I lost my roku remote last month. The price for the instant channels is not that bad.

You have to PAY to use the Volume and Power, as well as to quickly open, for say, Netflix or Hulu and Hulu or YouTube. So find something else this one is stupid.

This is awesome! I had to get close to the Roku device, ours is pretty old, but it worked! No set up at all! Thanks!!!

It works good, i paid for all the extras, (the volume doesn't work) the Roku app (roku and remote with WiFi and IR) is absolutely free and works just as good 😊

The format is a little different than the real remote, but it works just as well. Very helpful when I misplace the remote. Thanks!

Great, always have my phone with me, but can't ever find the remote. This app fixed that problem, works perfectly

Only thing is , you have to pay for everything except for the up down pad, but other than that it works just like a remote , I love it

Works well when it does. But it glitches out sometimes. Then I have to reset the whole app and turn wifi off and back on.

Easy to load, easy to use. Can't figure out why these apps can't do volume though. Other than that, this one works well.

Way better then the actual roku app, the roku app would always close out and this app just opens up. BUT YOU HAVE TO PAY EXTRA TO TURN OFF UR TV AND ADJUST THE VOLUME!!!

Doesn't work. Scans for devices...three in here and in and it couldn't even find the one sitting 20 feet away.

This is great remote. Using the Roku app. Is not as quite as fast. This is what I use

I really enjoy it because it comes in handy when I cant find my roku remote. It's very reliable.

Wonderful, it helps with everything. I mean if remote is are you can switch around real quick lift ride up and down back and forth whatever

Love this app. I can literally control my tv withe the touch of my smartphone! Thanks for making a remote control app too! Now i dont have to worry when i cant find the remote!

Amazing works great after I misplaced my regular remote so I just grabbed my trusty phone with this amazing app... Try it it's great all the way here in Portland Maine

Love it. My remote stop working all of a sudden. I downloaded the app and kept it moving.👍

I have a roku stick and this remote app works awesome for it. My kids are always losing the original roku remote so this app has been a great back up.

I find it easier to use then the remote. It is more responsive then the remote. 👍

It asked me to pay for sound on the TV but didn't tell me it may not work before I paid only after I paid it said TV controls will only work with a roku tv so I paid for nothing

Love it, give it try the best, if you miss placed your remote control, this work just fine for me.

I like it, minor detail have to pay to be able to control the volume on my tv since it's not a roku tv

I got this today and it wont connect at all! Im just trying to watch youtube because my other roku remote is broke this is so dumb and broken!

Remote app works great,the only problem the volume button won't work.

Volume control does not work, my tv is a roku tv. App want to charge you to use volume control.

The controls are good the connection is fantastic you can access it from around the house don't know why you'd need this feature other than a prank oh yeah it goes through walls

Thank you, my remote stoped working i just love my roku remote control thank you, please try it if you have not. Good job roku thanks again

Does not control volume keeps saying it cannot connect with my roku but it's somehow able to control other functions otherwise I would give it 5 stars

Great app, saved us as we have lost our remote control and thanks to the app we are now able to enjoy our favorite shows again.

It works as it should like any other remote I love it. It's an awesome app keep up the good work. 👍👌✌️

So far everything works great! Better then a real remote control.

Awesome. My old remote ate AAA batteries like a fat kid in a candy store. Now I dont have to spend any more money. Thank you Roku!

Worked straight from installation. No faff, no problems. Using with my NOW TV stick. Would be 5* if you didn't have to pay for volume controls!

It's very cool to not be collared by a remote and being able use my phone as the remote for the Roku.This is a very pleasant app experience.

Couldn't find remote. Downloaded the app. It worked. I still cant find my remote though. All good.

Perfect app if you've lost your remote control! A big thank you to the developpers

My NOW TV remote control packed up, I downloaded this app to use until I got it replaced, but I just use the app now, it does the job perfectly.

Almost like a old style remote. Only I wish I could have used my finger like a pointer on a mouse. And, where's the keyboard?

Awesome experience no commercials no interference to straight remote time that's when I've had so far thank you very much people who made this

Perfect! Lost my now tv remote and this works perfectly! No setting up, worked easy enough

Comes in handy when I can't find the remote or the batteries have run out!

So far it's working good. A perfect option when you loose your rc.

The app just constantly scans for a roku box. I can't even turn the box on with the remote app before it tries to scan!

I am loving it! No more outrageous cable or satellite bills. These days businesses just want to bleed you dry, but not Roku. They are an amazing company.

Doesnt work half the time. Frequently states not coonected to my roku.

I really like this app I tried 4 apps before I found this one. Thank you so much for making a wonderful app that works!

Don't hacer to buy any batteries and is very fast to connect to my roku!!!!!!!

It doesn't detect my devices even though they're connected to the same network.

Bought a Roku and it said download the free app. This app cost 3.99 to use more than 25% and no ads. That's not free

Works well with tv. Only problem is that u have to pay to be able to control volume and turn the tv on and off

This app works great, no glits so far. It's great having your phone and remote at hand.

I really like this app it is very use full when we lose our remote thank you so much.

Thanks to the app I didn't have to order a new remote. Really user friendly.

Super easy to use, automatically connected to my Roku. Great to have since the remote always disappears.

This is awesome! Lost both my Roku remotes. This is great

Why in the holy heck are you charging features which should automatically be free with this app?!? Changing the volume $1.99?!? Get the heck out of here with this.

My roku remote just up and quit working. A friend advised of this app and it totally came in clutch. Love it.

Favorite app ever. It works perfect with my tv and roku. Thank you ❤❤❤

I broke my original Roku controller remote and find this replacement on my phone a very worthy replacement. It works fine.

Excellent. It works exactly like the physical remote control

It really helps 😊 me bc I always lose my Roku like at and this app is so cool for me period

Does exactly what I need it to do. Very easy to operate, and I don't have to keep up with different remotes now.

Easy and fast to switch channels i only wish there were movies from this decade.

Unable to connect to your Roku device.... Argh!!

App seems to work good. Should not have to pay for volume but..... it is what it is. Does what it says it will do.

Works as good as expected. Would be better with volume options.

Easy to use Life saver if you can't find your other remote.

My idiot stepdad is too lazy to keep up with a roku remote so I had to download this to watch Netflix. Lifesaver. Works great so far.

Basic/free functions work great. Better than the Roku remote app.

Awesome it is Amazing I love it work better than my Remote to my TV Thank Goodest for smartphones 😊

This is so good!I didn't even have to connect to the TV!

Without this app i would be buying more remotes really easy to use all in all a great app for me xx

Love it, easy to use. Lots of channels

I am very pleased with the app. Works much better than the original rent.

Very good to work on my now tv and also easy to use

I just bought the pro for the volume feature and it keeps saying cant connect to roku. And wont control volume. Want refund

Easy and quick solution for when the kids inevitably lose the remote!

Wonderfully made just like the remote the price to purchase the tv controls was great thanks ROBYTE 🤷

Charging me for special features like lower volume... Ha ha very funny

The dog ate the remote, this remote works great and it's free! 😀

This works great I just don't like the clicking sound it makes.

Has conection issue every once in a while or maybe its the device

Power button not working after paying for this feature.

After a wwek the direction arrows disappeared rendering it non functional.

Really good app my controller just stopped working so really needed this
