Too many ads! 3/5
Controller is great but way too many ads!
Waste of time 1/5
Worked for a hot second then stopped and magically won’t connect anymore even after I paid for it. Thanks!!! 👎👎👎
Adds really 2/5
Ads on a Tv remote wow
I love cheez doodles and I shuv um up my butt
4 stars 4/5
It’s a great app but I wish there were less adds and I wish you could use it even if the tv is off
Bullard house 3/5
I was excited to use my phone for a remote , until I had to fight the games an ads to see an use it.
Great app 5/5

Best app easy to use many apps to choice from good quality
Too many adds 1/5
Too many adds
Works but w. ads and... 3/5
Works good but constant ads. Still be to use my remote because doesn’t sync all the time.
Pretty decent, adds tho. 5/5
Pretty decent, adds are in it but it’s functional. There are better, but I don’t care to search that hard for this. It works for a remote without sound control to a Rokie device
Why is there ads on this app?? 1/5
A 5 second ad when you are trying to find a show is the most annoying thing ever.
By pure power plant
Won’t turn on my tv
Why the hell does this have ads
Thank you for fixing the app 4/5
By Solomon Auguste
I wrote a negative review before this, because literally a week after I paid to remove the ads the app completely stopped working. I’d like to thank Rokie for fixing the app. Thank you Rokie.
Petty charges 1/5
After not owning a tv for 12 years and now owning a Roku tv within the first week we’ve been disappointed twice. Once with the lock down on using Bluetooth speakers, we have a Bose sound system and it will only connect with Roku speakers secondly this petty charge for the remote to be ad free. Shame on you Roku
Bad app 1/5
By Da Hitman23
App only works occasionally
Take away ads 5/5
I just wish there wasn’t so many ads , that is the only upsetting thing .
Pay the $2 and be done with it. 4/5
It bugs when people complain about stuff they get for free. Yes, ads are annoying - no human could design a more frustrating way to present ads. Some programmer(s) spent hours building this. They deserve to get paid. For a measly $1.99 you get an app that is very useful.
Every time I use it gives me an ad this app is so dumb
Found my device -ONCE- 1/5
I haven’t been able to discover my device ever again this app is garbage , don’t lose your remote
Poor implementation; doesn’t resolve issues with supplied remote 1/5
Same set of issues not being able to properly process FF, RW commands controlling Amazon prime videos. Doesn’t faithfully replicate supplied remote behavior, especially OK button. That button is now closely tied to launching unwanted functions that destroy video playback RC capabilities for this app.
I would rate 0 or less if I could and will not use this until supplied remote fails completely.
Please take this review seriously Roku - this app is a bad joke gone awry.
I even paid for the ads to be taken off, which was $2 just for the stupid remote to not work, to not pick up any of my roku devices. My phone and tv are both connected to the same STABLE internet connection. I WANT MY MONEY BACK

Constant ads are annoying
Ads are annoying
Roku remote 5/5
I love it but wish you could turn the tv on and off with it as well.
Stop the ads 4/5
Ads prevent me from using the ap! In the middle of selecting something an ad comes up!
This has to be a joke. Adds pop up with a timer well you are trying to use the remote. I had to wait 12 seconds to change the channel. Just download the ROKU remote control. This app looks like it but it’s not.
Can’t restore purchase 1/5
Can’t restore purchase after redownloading, now I get constant ads even after purchasing...
Just a trick to get you to see ads and pay $2 to make them go away
Greater than the actual remote!
Can't connect 1/5
Worked for about a week and can't connect now. Also, the ads came after practically every interaction.
Does not connect every time
ADS EVERYWHERE 1/5
Do I really need to watch an ad to adjust the volume on my tv?
Fastest, Easiest setup 5/5
By Lavish Lagoon
Literally all you have to do with this app is download it and open it, select ur device and you got yourself a remote. easiest process. works great
Shows ads 2/5
By H Carlson
I’m not sure if this is made by the roku maker, but I was using this app since my phone was closer than the remote, until it showed an ad that I couldn’t seem to click out of! It’s useless to me if I can’t use it as a remote when needed.
Bluetooth connection is spotty 2/5
Remote doesn’t always work, tv is on& responding w sound but not action that button is meant to invoke.
Too many ads 1/5
Uninstalling. I found another one with no ads.
There’s an ad for every 3 clicks
Ads? Seriously? On a Remote App? 1/5
Yeah this WOULD be really useful, except that there are ads about every two clicks or every half a minute. Extremely irritating. Not to mention the ads aren’t ones you can just close out of. They’re on a timer, so you’re waiting about two minutes just waiting for the ad to stop and then you’re hunting for the teeny tiny X so you can close it to use the freaking remote. Ridiculous.
Suppose I’ll get a universal remote instead...at least I won't have to wait for a timed ad to disappear every time I want to watch television.
Ads ads ADS ADS IN YOUR FACE ADDDDS 2/5
Constant advertising pop ups and it’s always while you’re actually in process of tapping and choosing, which I suppose makes them a lot more money because it means you’re tapping away and unintentionally tap the pop up. I hate feeling tricked that way. This app stinks. Go get the actual Roku app instead. It’s 100x better!
Works flawlessly 5/5
By Stratum an
Even from another room if I forget to turn the unit off.
The ads are awful! 2/5
-it works well enough to get content to play
-I like the homepage shortcut and the possibility of using the keyboard
- saved us from buying a new remote; although based on how annoying this is to use, it probably won’t.
- holy ads Batman! Seems like one plays every 5 seconds. Especially annoying when I’m trying to set limits with my kid but than can’t pause/stop a show because I have to sit through a 30 second ad first
- the keyboard feature is glitchy. It’s hard to swap back and forth between the keyboard the the arrow buttons.
Don’t buy this 1/5
By El Jamester
It doesn’t work. It always says that it’s not connected to the same network as the tv.
To many adds 4/5

This app is a great way to use on your tv
Best phone remote control 5/5
I like it because usually people don’t lose their phones and sometimes remotes can be lost because they’re tiny and the Roku app really helps that because your phone is bigger than the remotes and it’s really really really nice I don’t really lose my phone so it’s good for me but other people if you lose your phone a lot it will be really good I’ll give us a five star because it is high technology Mostly I like this and I don’t really lose my phone because I’m always charging it but the bad thing is is that you have to wait for it to load and it’s really when you’re winning it takes a long time only if you need to do something I love you because you really wa mostly I like this and I don’t really lose my phone because I’m always charging it but the bad thing is is that you have to wait for it to load and it’s takes a while but if you need to do something it’s convenient l Would get this I will give this five stars and that’s all I wanted to sis bye!
Stupid that you have to connect to WiFi just to use this app, should be able to use my data if I want to
Works for the first few days after awhile it stops working .
So many ads. 1/5
Too many ads.
