Happy so far 4/5
It is very easy to navigate. I haven't come across any issues yet. I really don't have a point of reference, but I am not looking to try others because I am happy so far
Works great 5/5
In our house with the kids the remote always is lost. Problem fixed with this app
Exceeded my expectations!!! 5/5
By LOCO 17
The great thing about this is how user friendly this app is.
Roku TV has became in my best investment in electronic appliances.
Lost My TCL Remote 5/5
I love this app.,Thank you for making it! I lost my TV Remote- it's a TCL Smart TV with a built in Roku and TCL provided Roku remote for their TV. Thank goodness this works! And it has better features than the remote it came with! :)
Almost perfect! 4/5
The app is great if you can connect. We lost our remote while moving and can't connect the tv to the new wifi or find out the IP address to connect manually, because we have no remote, so in turn we can't use the app as our remote.
If they added some type of system to help with this it would be perfect!
Good, but room for improvement 4/5
Does what it says. How about a sleep button?
They made it better 5/5
They made the app better by updating and upgrading it. You can now click on the app icons to open those programs. I just wish it defaulted to the remote view.
This is an awesome remote 5/5
I lost the remote to the Roku and this is a perfect replacement. It does take a while after you select the streaming medium to get to the main menu to select your show. Other than that, it is a good replacement for a Roku remote.
Good app for when you lose the remote. 4/5
Never have to worry about losing the roku remote when you have this app. Can also save a lot of clicking through menus. Only issue is the headphone audio. Not quite there yet: it goes out after 15 minutes or so.
Very nice app 5/5
By Model master
Operates instantly over my wifi and phone becomes the remote. Doesn't rely on line-of-sight like infrared remotes.

works better than the actual remote
Love it 5/5
I love to use it because the roku remote is broken. So glad that there is a app for roku❤️
Great ! 5/5
It works amazing !!! Absolutely love it
Good but no t so good: What's the use for having this app when must of what they offer is paying subscriptions?. The only app that I like is sling tv especially sling Latino and many times wouldn't even work. I was looking to get rid of my cable company and all I have found out that only thing working good for me is my services provider Bright house/Spectrum. There is nothing I hate more than Bright House/ Spectrum than Time warner cable and is almost the only thing I am able to watch on Roku Express.
It's ok when I can connect to device 3/5
By Desperate to get this working
Very quirky, key functions such as deleting channels are only available on the apps but not on remote. Also it keeps not finding the paired device and I have to delete and re install Roku Device app on my smart phone which is a pain.
Doesn't connect 1/5
99% of the time does not connect. Very unreliable.
very good app 5/5
thankful for the remote part lol
Pretty good, so many things could be better. But good none the less
Headphone option is amazing 5/5
I love using the headphone feature i can watch with no sound while my wife is asleep super awesome ...
Great App 5/5
Works well. Easy to use. Love the headphone feature.
Life saver 5/5
I lost my remote to my tv and was dreading buying a new one! So happy to have found the app!
Doesn't detect 4/5
It sometimes doesn't detect the device and have to uninstall and reinstall or restart my phone and the roku device. I'm using an iphone 7 let me know if you have the same problems.
It's nice it works 5/5
It's nice it works good

Love listening from headphones!
Amazing app 5/5
Love that this app shows the remote on the phone. Super fast. Great apps. Love love love
Easy! Awesome 5/5
I see nothing wrong with the app it works perfectly no lag easy to use many many features just wish there was a widget for it for the basic controls
What do I do with it? 5/5
Okay, it's a remote on my phone. That's pretty neat. I wish I could control my cable with an app on my phone.
But other than its neat, it's just another remote. I'm not too sure what else it's good for or what else to do with it.
It does connect pretty quickly with my Roku. I wish it did more than ff and rwd etc. I can't select channels.
Absolutely love it 5/5
It took a while for me to divorce my cable company but once I got roku I'm hooked.
Voice lags with Private Listening 1/5
UPDATED 5/24/17: Used to think this was as good as the standard remote. But I like to engage private listening so I don't disturb the other people in my house. The app helps me avoid changing my remote's batteries ever few days so it's recent glitch of voice lag-time is irritating. It can be corrected for a short time 5 minutes or so by pulling out and reinserting the headphones but that gets old really fast.
FORMER REVIEW: I prefer to feel the buttons instead of look at them. But the handheld remote is glitchy and temperamental. I often have to play around with the batteries, roll up them and occasionally remove and reinstall them. This app works like a charm and the response time is much better. Plus it doesn't need batteries!
Type search instead of arrows 5/5
As of May 23rd 2017 the remote pad freezes the entire app... and it keeps dropping the connection to the roku. I'm going to try reinstalling.
Got this because I misplaced Roku remote, and I'm happy I did. This works with all of my Rokus (three Rokus, two different models) and has a keyboard search which is far easier and faster than the up, down, left and right arrows available on the Roku remote search.
I don't understand another reviewer's statement that videos couldn't be watched unless they were on the phone already. The Roku app isn't a viewer, but it is a remote for the actual Roku unit. Apps for Netflix, HuluPlus and the like can play their content on your mobile devices.
Has problems 3/5
I love this app, but I'm constantly having to redownload this app because it won't connect to my tv.
Doesn't find TV most times 3/5
Shows as eco mode, but TV is on. And won't connect...
Works perfect 5/5
I've had this app for a good while now, and have had no problem with it. It's super helpful when you have lost he remote. Love it.
Thank you! 5/5
By Yo yo bam

Good app 5/5
I use this app as a remote and since I've lost mine it helps out a lot
It's fast and easy to use!😉 love it!👍🏻
Works perfect 5/5
Batteries died on my remote and I downloaded this. Works perfect for me and now the other remote just sits in my closet. You can also view/watch photos/videos that are on your phone! Great app
F***king Great. 5/5
I love it. It's so convenient. I recommend it to everyone in the world!!!
Great app if you've lost you remote 5/5
By Ilys mom
I couldn't find my remote for my roku box and was going crazy until I realized there was an app I could use I recommend anyone who has a roku to download this app
Easier than the regular remote 5/5
Not only can I not lose this remote, but it is also easier to search in for my Roku 1.
Booting the app is sLower than expected as it does verify unit iD every time, but how great is it to have a "BackUp" for free whiLe I order the one with voice command. (Remote's sturdier than the tv - o.0)
Sometimes I lose my remote so this helps me find and use the tv thx ruko
Great, one suggestion 4/5
It's great but I wish it had a volume control.
JUST READ 5/5
By Review On Apps
Okay I am just you average social media addicted girl that love Starbucks and tv and I have found no issue with the app so far
One thing I don't like is that when i am at someone else's house who has toku 1 I don't know how to connect so I would really like to solve that problem
Thank you for reading and possibly responding
-Your Average Girl
Great streaming 5/5
Perfect device in all ways. Super easy to setup and use. Wouldn't use any other device at this point.
