Gets the job done (⌚️/📱) 4/5
The app for my phone and watch are both so handy sometimes I had to give a good rating for Roku coming out with these apps, especially for the Apple Watches! The app is very bland and essentially does what it absolutely needs to do and usually never have a problem with it freezing or malfunctioning; that’s to say that there’s not much to go wrong here, however, due to its simplicity which is appreciated but I think more can come from it. Read below please –

I would think it would be so cool to have the remote also have the shortcut buttons, for example, to Hulu. I also think it would be by far even more awesome if there was a way to develop a system to control sound level on the tv. I know some remotes come with and some come without volume control, but if you made the setup process very user friendly, you could draw some BIG attention!
⚠️ Request ⤵️
Updating the watch app indefinitely. It serves its purpose, but even with the bigger size watch screens, it’s so darn hard to hit the left/right/up/down arrows or even the bac/home key without having to look down at what you’re doing which just tells me there’s some improvement needed. Maybe in an update, the buttons can be bigger for the watch for example.
‼️ PLEASE READ DEVELOPERS! ‼️
I think you’ve made an adequate app and I do like it. However, I think you guys can do better than this and really push yourselves for consumers to love the apps as much as they love the Roku TVs and streaming services. It’s simplicity is awesome, but maybe some recommendations I shared would help. Hopefully a developer will get the chance to read and respond to what I’ve taken the time and set aside to write for the product, especially because of my considerably high review for Roku. Anything else in an update (I’m sure you’re all very creative individuals!) would make me thrilled! I hope I get some validation that my voice has been heard.
All the best!! 💌
Doesn’t always work
The coolest app 5/5
I lose remotes. Not my phone. I lost the remote. This app saved me.
Love this app 5/5
Great app but I can’t use it on my watch but it works extremely well on my phone definitely would suggest.
Smart phone Roku remote 5/5
It’s perfect. Never fails very convenient
Doesn’t Work!!!! 1/5
Just crashes every time you open it even after restarting the XS Max phone.
Trash connection 1/5
Never connects on the first try
No Power On/OFF button 2/5
Would be nice to be able to turn off the tv once you have turned on. Other than that it works well.
Please add a power on/off button
I love it!! 5/5
By Chloe Jewitt
It works for an Apple Watch so you don’t have to use your phone for a remote, but when you use it on your phone there are no ads so you don’t have to wait to hit anything.
Integrated very well 4/5
Lost my remote. I have used this app ever since for my Streaming stock as well as my Roku tv from insignia.
Dr Langston 5/5
Easy , user friendly
Roku remote app 5/5
By long time roku user

Best app for the Roku
Works great 5/5
By y. shaw
This remote app works better than the remote that came with my roku device!
Keyboards buggy but great app 4/5
Fix the keyboard bug please the words cant keep up with my typing and i type at like 90wpm
Works 10 times faster than the official Roku app.
It’s the best I couldn’t find the remote and this helped me a lot but one thing is that it doesn’t have the volume
Doesn’t work at all! 1/5
Loaded nothing happened. Says to connect to phone, did that still nothing deleted and reinstalled nothing still.
Kind of worthless if you have to open it on your phone and then use your watch. If gonna do that might as well just the phone.
This does work! But you have to turn on the tv and then it will work!!
Solid remote! 5/5
By List an
Nice, simple, doesn't make calls out to the internet.
Works better than the Roku app! 5/5
Wayyyyy better. Stays connected and Apple Watch app is awesome!
By Dread Zepplin
Best app for ROKU!
Love it Great app works great
No ability to power tv off or on.... 1/5
By Sparky shaft
Doesn’t seem that the app nor the apple watch app have the simple capability to turn the TV on or off. What it does have works. However I deleted it an went back to normal Roku app. Wish it had Apple Watch app though.
Works great 5/5
It just works great. Love the naming feature which lets you know which ROKU you are controlling. Short-cut scripts might be a good add-on, favorite channels and quick selection for a few shows might be good. Hit quick launch button, lists of users, then pick your show it goes to the ROKU channel be it NETFLIX or HULU as an example, then to the show where you left off. Just a thought, sure you get plenty of ideas from everywhere.
Thanks for the product.
Missing key feature 3/5
This would be the perfect Roku companion for iPhone AND Apple Watch if it had an on/off button. I would delete my actual roku app if it had that functionality, as it is the only way to turn the tv off without the physical remote. Aside from that, the addition of more other controls would be nice but the on/off would be the game changer.
Cos termed 4/5
It needs a off and on button please do that if I did have a on off button it would have 5 stars otherwise it’s great please respond
Awesome App!! 5/5
I have multiple Roku devices installed throughout the house. Like most people, I’m never without my phone. Being to switch between the devices within the app makes it so simple to control the devices. Well done!!
Kinda like 5/5
Doesn't work at all 1/5
The watch app doesn't work at all. The interface loads but you can tap anything as many times as you want and nothing happens ever.
Like it 5/5
By nk kim
Add volume up and down pleaseee 3/5
Title says everything
Roku 11 2/5
Please up date with volume control for the TV and private listen on the iPone or iPad devices.
Great App!!!! Love it!!! 5/5
Misplaced my control, downloaded the app and easy to setup!!!❤️❤️❤️❤️
I’d add a few things. . . 4/5
If you could make it to there is the ability to listen to the show through the phone for like use the remote for audio for leaving the room real quick or headphones if in the room with someone not watching.
Also a power button for the roku would also be nice, te app otherwise great!
not good 1/5
Used to be good, but now I have to close the app continually to control my Roku.
Needs improvements 2/5
Looks nice but no volume control
Does what it says it will do 5/5
A great go-to remote when yours is lost in your blankets or been knocked into the garbage by a playful cat.
Love it 5/5
By wow Micky
Their app automatically picks up your various Roku bodies- I have 4 so I then edit to identify which room it’s in I love it above others
I love Roku 🌼❤️ 5/5
Is something very comfortable
Minimalist - Awesome 5/5
Can’t adjust volume 2/5
It doesn’t let you adjust volume. Other smart remotes do.
Been having trouble 3/5
By ustacud farms
I love they key pad love the way the app is set up but sometimes it don’t want to connect to the Roku I have been having trouble with the remotes connecting if it would stay connected I’d rate it a 5
It’s ok, not fully functional 3/5
I only use this one because it’s suddenly the only one that actually connects to my roku tv, idk why, the others worked fine and all of a sudden my tv was undiscoverable. But, it doesn’t control the volume or turn off the tv for some reason. Other than that, it works well. It may just be my tv that’s the problem.
Roku remote 5/5
Easy to pair and navigate, love it
Works gr8! Fantastic. 5/5
Lost remote & downloaded this app. I’ve used others that aren’t near as nice.
This one works easily. Downloads in mins, & I think it’s free, or only .99 cents.
It works on both of my TVs, each with different Rokus. It’s sensitive to the touch. & is just great all around.
I give it 5 Stars ⭐️ all around, so long as the price doesn’t go up. (I downloaded a diff Roku remote/“rokie”, & it makes u watch ads, doesn’t works most of the time, & is annoying; this is much better.)
