Google Play Reviews

  1. Diane Converse-avatar

    I'm so glad you have this app. It makes it so much easier to use the channels that I need to use because of the key pad and it's much easier than using the TLC Roku TV remote control because that only has the arrows and if you don't have all of the channels already on your tv you can do it manually otherwise you don't get those channels. So thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! This app is the best!! 🙂👌👍

  2. Chris Brown-avatar

    Without paying for the use of volume you may as well not even try this app. My seven year old granddaughter lost our remote while listening to her show, which for reasons on my nerves I had her to turn down. So, I tried this remote. I could change channels, but without paying to turn my roku tv up, and down, having the ability to change the channel meant next to nothing...😞

  3. Michele Gilley-avatar

    Been using this app with no issues was a 5. Just updated the app and now my remote control page won't show the button to click. What a real inconvience. May uninstall. UPDATE: Still having issues. Remote app sticks and won't work. I have to wait til it starts to working again, which, is really unfortunate when I'm in the middle of a good show.

  4. Allan Bentley-avatar

    This app doesn't even work the volume or change channels. There isn't even an option to use headphones. I used to tell everyone to get roku. I hope they didn't listen. The last app for roku I had was very good. This one isn't worth the memory space. I can't get it to work with my TV, I do not care what it offers on my phone.

  5. William Apple-avatar

    Do not purchase the extra features... Chances are the volume control and voice feature will not work. I have a pretty new Sony TV and a Roku ultra, and the volume doesn't work. I reached out to the contact for the app and they were pretty much no help... Nothing in the description to warn anyone that the voice control may not work...

  6. Amanda Rivera-avatar

    This app is pretty useful, however sometimes whatever you're watching gets interrupted and the TV goes back to the home screen. It's kinda annoying but if your regular remote stops working like mine did then this is the next best thing. The only downside other than what I just stuff is that you have to pay if you want to be able too..i control the volume which is a major inconvenience on my part since I have no volume buttons on my roku TV.

  7. Mary Catalano-avatar

    Roku was way more then I ever expectedî the fact the I can just use the speaker of my phone while watching it in the T. V. ,, Or I can use headphones or even a Bluetooth I absolutely love it, and it's very, cool because you could change your theme you could change the look,, I love it can't say more than that about it I ABSOLUTELY love it my friends !!!

  8. K Bramlett-avatar

    You expect me to pay for volume control and a power button!? Are you serious!? Why I just give you a car and tell you if you want the engine and the transmission you will need to pay for it. I thought your app had something more to offer, but your description is extremely deceptive. Roku's own app is a much better piece of software.

  9. Slugs Kingdom-avatar

    This works great, but my only problem is that you have to pay for the volume. I was a little upset because the volume buttons on our actual remote don't work (no one could figure out why) so thst was partailly why I got this app. A little disapointing, but I won't unistall.

  10. misty mason-avatar

    It wants you to pay to unlock certain features like choosing an app (Netflix). I found another remote app in the play store that works better. It looks better, is easier to use and does more than this one.

  11. Justin D-avatar

    The app is very simple and easy to use. I got this app for the widgets. I paid to have all the widgets available and knocked a star off due to small issues with the widgets. Sometimes they don't respond and sometimes my phone actually times out while using the widgets, meaning i have to turn my phone back on. It would also be nice to have a volume control widget and/or power button widget

  12. Martha Gammino-avatar

    I paid for control of on/off, volume, and input on my TV and it doesn't work. I have a Roku express and this app will navigate that but when it comes to volume/input/on-off it says it can't connect to my Roku.

  13. Aaron Reuss-avatar

    Can't connect to save Wi-Fi when I need the remote to connect to Wi-Fi the first-place what can an idiot set this thing up. How is it that as technical person that writes apps for a living do you not understand that you need a remote to set up Wi-Fi. But then again every single remote app ask the same thing.

  14. Kimball Robinson-avatar

    Kimball Robinson


    I love this app. It's very handy when my kids have lost the remote. I think their keyboard integration could be better. For example it would be nice if I could still hit the arrow buttons while I have a keyboard open. I would also like to be able to choose channels directly from the app from the main control board.

  15. Venessa Walker-avatar

    I lost my Remote about 4 months ago, I still cannot find it. I downloaded this Roku Remote Control and it does the same as the one I had. I LOVE this Remote, I did not purchase another one, I like this Remote.👑👑🕊🦋. 6/26/2020.

  16. Lexie Nicks-avatar

    Very useful. No issues for us. Only complaint is that it's difficult to type in search without looking @ my phonewith the way you have to press the keys.

  17. Taylor McDaniel-avatar

    I downloaded this app and purchased the volume button capability and it tells me it is unable to connect to my Roku but everything else works only reason I downloaded was for the volume button capability. I would like a refund.

  18. Bobby-avatar

    Great when it worked. Havent tried the paid features. Kept misplacing our roku remote so this is a godsend. But randomly stops working. Not sure why all of a sudden as i never changed network settings. Double checked wireless connection and IP address.

  19. Drake Barski-avatar

    It works, but there's no power button unless you pay for it. That means I can't use this to turn on my TV when I can't find my remote. You know - the whole reason I downloaded this in the first place...

  20. Co Flow-avatar

    I would have given this app a 5. But i paid the extra $3.99 to get the power on and off botton and volume control and the power botton dosen't even turn the tv on. Maybe you should make that clear before you falsely advertise your product

  21. Literal C H E E S E yt-avatar

    It's hilarious how when you choose to connect manually it says "to find your IP address, use your REMOTE to find it in settings". Why would we download this app if we didn't lose our remote?

    This app is amazing, I don`t mind that one part costs money, the controls are very smooth like right when you press the arrows or which ever buttons, it responds immediately, if I could rate it a 10 star or more I would!

  23. Tika Campbell-avatar

    Actually my only complaint is it will glitch and go back to open app. But over all it's not a big deal, the app is free, useful, and I have recommended to my family

  24. Marylou Rodriguez-avatar

    Marylou Rodriguez


    I have had experiences to where the remote does not connect to my Roku device. Sometimes it even gets stuck when I've pushed it to change a channel or app it keeps moving non-stop and won't let me access what I want.

  25. Lina Linlin-avatar

    Installed the app and bought the full access for it.. worked for 2 days now it keeps saying cant comnect everytime so is my moms i bought for her as well i tried reinstalling it still dont work i put in my ip address for the tv and still says cant be found very annoying

  26. sheriff kitty-avatar

    The things that bothers me the most is that as soon as I got it I used in YouTube, and when I was not even touching the remote the tv was repeditly swiping to the right the littlest touches were held down

  27. Empress Sabali-avatar

    Worked amazingly until I purchased the volume upgrade then the app stopped working completely.. would like a refund for that part, My roku isn't compatible. My toddler stole the remote then we found then he threw it in his bath water so this was perfect!!

  28. Jasmine Stephens-avatar

    Jasmine Stephens


    I've only use this app 3 times, and this morning, I was trying to use it on my TV, it doesn't even work!!! Terrible app, please fix the issue now

  29. Brad Morrison-avatar

    Had trouble connecting to the Roku. It would work fine and then not respond for about a minute. Really annoying.

  30. Daniel Hayward-avatar

    This app works great for me. It's very simple to use and I've had no difficulty with the connection or speed of the functions. I like it.

  31. Ronda Williams-avatar

    I have had this app downloaded for a while and have used it. Now I have pay a fee to use the volume feature on here...really? PEOPLE DON'T BOTHER DOWNLOADING THIS APP THEY MAKE YOU PAY FOR FEATURES THAT USED TO BE FREE. Now I'm uninstalling this app!

  32. Arabelle von Theissen-avatar

    Arabelle von Theissen


    I like this remote it funtions as it should. But it does not control the volume. Much better than others that I have tried.

  33. Brian Sutton-avatar

    Works great u dont even have to B in front of the device to use it..Works better than a regular remote to me..!!!(I Love It)!!!!!

  34. Amos St. Juste Sr.-avatar

    It has a mind of its own sometimes scrolling wildly none stop. But other than that, good app, no other problem. I recommend this app.

  35. Mamie Wj-avatar

    My original remote stopped working and I was over the moon when I found this app. Thank you thank you thank you! Highly recommend..

  36. Rico Cruz-avatar

    Keeps freezing when i try to push any buttons and i purchsed the whole package, shouldnt have purchased if it wasn't going to work.

  37. Susan Edwards-avatar

    I wish I had know about this earlier. I kept having to push the buttons several times on 2 different remotes. The app is so much more sensitive from the phone. And one less remote on the table😁

  38. banditgwen-avatar

    My Roku remote stopped working and I remembered that I had downloaded this, it works great, saved me some money not having to replace it.

  39. Vickie Tackett-avatar

    I like it. It's just to sensitive! Hard typing in the names, it makes double letters, and your constantly back spacing! Do we really need to pay, to get the keyboard?

  40. zack derrick-avatar

    Was working fine but now it keeps saying roku device not found. I paid for the premium and now I honestly wish I didn't.

  41. James Daniels-avatar

    Most come with the volume but you have to pay for the volume key with this besides that it works great.

  42. Lindsey Warner-avatar

    Love it. Easy to use, no problems, kept me from having to purchase a new remote when our roku remote went out. Perfect

  43. Jenny Kilgour-avatar

    I'm forever losing my Roku remote, and this has been a lifesaver! It works brilliantly

  44. Kimbry Wilfong-avatar

    I love this app and it really helps that I didn't have to pay to use it. A great app for sure. Love it!!

  45. Basem Azmy-avatar

    This app is the worst!! it has to search for your tv but... you have to turn on your tv with the normal remote 😣 VERY ANOYING

  46. Nina Carrillo-avatar

    Wasn't happy at 1st! Uninstall and reinstalled. Works great now! Especially when I cant find my remote!

  47. PROPVPRAPS XD-avatar

    Works great love it a lot I just need the basic stuff but if the volume was free this would be a 5 star but over all this is a great way to use your tv when you lose or break the remote

  48. Team Smoke-avatar

    We have lost the actual remote so many times it's nice to have a backup remote I wish you could control the sound though

  49. Alexander Banks-avatar

    Alexander Banks


    Rip off, sure it works, but if you want volume control pay $1.99 - is this a joke?!

  50. Alan Mortimore-avatar

    Very good app. It's nice because we keep losing our remote.

  51. Franklin Hall-avatar

    my kids misplaced our roku remote. couldn't have asked for a better quick substitute. Doesn't quite have the tactile feel of the actual one, but it does the job! For that, it gets 5 stars!

  52. Kira Myers-avatar

    I'm glad this app exist because our remote isn't working anymore and they said we have to go directly to the office. But say no more

  53. Paul Mason-avatar

    I honestly did not think it would work I did it on the TV and it just worked fully amazing

  68. Kai Jordan-avatar

    This app is a scam. The TV has no manual buttons, forcing us to use a remote. Then I get this app and to TURN THE TV ON I HAVE TO PAY FOR "PRO FEATURES" BULLSH##

  69. Lisa Pulver-avatar

    It works like having a real remote. Added bonus is you will not lose your phone as easily as you lose your remote😜
