Roku - Official Remote Control app reviews

  • My phone doubles as the “remote” for the TV 5/5

    By ZTSylvestre
    I really appreciate the convenience of the app. I use it daily. It would be really cool if we could customize the “remote” more, both with features and aesthetically.
  • Wth 1/5

  • Horrible 1/5

    By Planet hamburger
    When I try to type on the keyboard the thing keeps trying to delete what I’m typing
  • Horrible App, don’t bother. 1/5

    By 103738626726636
    Doesn’t connect to Roku TV, Tried everything but it doesn’t work.
  • Downloaded because I lose my remote all the time 5/5

    By Akadimples_
    5 stars works great! I lose my remote all the time and this comes in handy!
  • It doesn’t work. 1/5

    By xoblavk
    I downloaded the app to use because I ended up losing my remote but when I try to use it, it won’t connect even when my wifi is connected. It just refuse to work.🤦🏾‍♂️
  • Buggy 1/5

    By Ercmadden
    This app is buggy as heck. The remote constantly losing connectivity with our devices and fails to wake them up. Any value of having this on the phone is way outweighed by how poor the performance is.
  • Fine app, but could be so much better 3/5

    By Literroy
    Imagine how much better this app would be if it supported iOS features like Shortcuts (a bedtime shortcut that turns your TV off for you? A “movie night” shortcut that launches Netflix?) or widgets (easy access to control your TV without having to find the app, open it, and switch over to the remote tab). Like, sure, it’s fine as it is, but it could be actually amazing by just adopting more basic iOS functions.
  • May 12 2021 update messed up audio streaming from Roku devices 1/5

    By Updating will delete progress
    The new update has caused the audio streaming to not connect. Every single time you try to stream audio to headphones using the Roku app you have to click connect, it shows it’s connected then automatically disconnects itself, then to get it to work you have to do it a second time. Please fix this.
  • Not working glitching 1/5

    By Neiomo
    Not working for me
  • Won’t connect 1/5

    By Mutnik
    Used this app for a while, but all of a sudden it no longer connects to any of our four Roku devices! App is pointless now as it won’t work.
  • Abusive app! Will spy on you with tons of… 2/5

    By 1Reviewer21
    Abusive and privacy intrusive app! It will spy on you tons of little scrip programs and cookies. All of my friends firewall and malware programs flag it as a privacy nightmare, so I and then block access to all of its tiny Roku programs and because of it doesn’t stays connected long, as a result all of my friends and I have deleted it. If you respect and care about your life and privacy, don’t download this abusive spy app!
  • Awesome app here’s why 5/5

    By haylee n evans
    I have two little sisters and we constantly lose the remote and this comes in handy
  • Why doesn’t it connect 2/5

    By aurihana
    Just why? I pretends my tv doesn’t exist...
  • Possibly the worst app of all time 1/5

    By rwyork725
    Rarely works I either need to uninstall then reinstall or unplug devices every time I want to use it. Sometimes they’re not even there
  • I love you 5/5

    By A little bit of I Angil
    Hey I just wanna say that you let me control my tv so thank you for it
  • Disconnecting 1/5

    Always disconnecting. Never works when need it. This is garbage.
  • Doesn’t work, unable to find any devices 1/5

    By LotusNetter
    This used to work, then one day it stopped working, unable to find devices on network. This happened across the board not just on my phone. Nothing changed on our network.
  • Response lag. Disables screen lock; drains battery. Disconnects often 2/5

    By f1rstgo
    Really long response time between remote and device. Hit pause, wait 10 seconds for something to happen. By then you’ve already hit all the other buttons so watch as your tv shudders trying to catch up pausing rewinding playing pausing exiting etc. This is especially maddening on YouTube when you want to pause before the video officially ends. Sometimes what seems like a “lag” is really the remote being disconnected, not that you’d know that, because there’s no indicator of connectivity. You just have to guess that that’s the problem and restart app. Meanwhile, your tv plays on. No option to stop app from disabling phone screen lock. If you fall asleep watching tv, your phone will display the remote all night long. Even tho it’ll likely be disconnected, your battery will still drain and over time your battery life will erode. For jailbreakers who can downgrade or those w older devices running iOS 9.3.3, I recommend the much older version which is responsive, stays connected, and doesn’t disable screen lock.
  • Wont work 1/5

    By rukusux
    Wont even open or give me option to delete
  • nice but has its flaws 3/5

    By lilbubba3215

  • Can’t stream Twitch on Tv 1/5

    By OffensiveNickname
    Why did you take away Twitch? Also why can’t I cast from my phone like we could years ago?
  • The video doesn’t match sound 1/5

    By dlm2071
    I got this so that I could play home videos from my phone to my TV. The video and the sound work fine but they don’t ever match up. I have to rewind the video to get it back on track and then it gets off after a few seconds. This is for dance videos of my kids so the sound and movement matching are important. Very disappointed with this.
  • Constantly Disconnects 2/5

    By Falkhart_123
    My network is a fairly normal AT&T WiFi setup. Not slow, not crazy fast. The Roku app is the only thing I’ve ever struggled to keep connected. Video plays fine, downloads are okay on everything else. I love the private listening feature with Roku, but about every 30min it gets confused and loses the network. The audio goes back to the TV, which is very loud. The remote also lags quite heavily. I’ll review again if I change my service provider, but I feel like right now it should be better. Super annoying.
  • Roku remote 1/5

    By xxaac
    Tbh this app is trash it always disconnects from the tv then takes years to reconnect
  • I love this app. But 4/5

    By mochaizzy
    I love this app. especially when I can’t find my remote. I also use it with my earphones, so I don’t interrupt anyone else in the house. The problem is that I’ll be listening and everything is fine and then all of a sudden the sound and the picture won’t be in sync. This happens a lot. I do hope they find a solution to this problem soon.
  • Amazing! 5/5

    By JewishPug24
    I lose the remote all the time, or it gets buried in the couch, or my dog lays on it. I had no idea when I got this TV as a birthday present last year from my girlfriend that I’d be able to have this app but I love it. Also love that they kept the option to have the “traditional” on the app so I don’t have to use the swipe I wasn’t a fan of that update. Overall, amazing app!
  • Worked great for years… 1/5

    By Magically Pretentious
    Worked flawlessly for years. Seems like the devs have given up on this app. Hasn’t worked at all since most recent iOS updates. Deleted it.
  • It’s good but if you push forget device it’s gone forever 4/5

    By dmarshall_7897

  • This app is amazing 5/5

    By Dxjhdhjc
    I love to use this app it is absolutely amazing. Anyone who has a problem with this app it’s just finding something to complain about or something wrong with their actual phone. I highly suggest using this app I’ve been using it for over two years.‼️‼️‼️
  • Ok... 4/5

    I just reinstalled it and its irking again after I manually connected it...ig imma have to keep doing that but other then that the app is really good...maybe you could fix it...
  • Love this 5/5

    By DeadlyPhantom51
    I lost my remote and it this app is super convenient. My remote is also super slow but this app is the best! Plus it has a speaking option which is super convenient and fast! Recommended 100%
  • Fix it 1/5

    By w1c?
    Freezes all the time just about done with this app
  • Disappointed 1/5

    By Quesera7
    What a great idea…..sadly it’s messed up. I’m sitting here staring at my phone’s screen. Clearly the WiFi is on and working yet this app continually asks me to connect to WiFi. What gives? It disconnects incessantly. Great idea - poor performance.
  • This app won’t open 1/5

    By Mlb134456789
    It hasn’t worked for months
  • Apps great, NEEDS A WIDGET!:) 4/5

    By alexvernaci

  • iPhone problems 2/5

    By it doeant matter who i am

  • Roku remote 5/5

    By Fryd1
    The people who made this app should be treated as God’s!
  • Good app 5/5

    By dumassgame
    This is a great app because I turn my back for a second and I never can find the remote. Every time a wake up can’t find the remote, I find my phone because it’s either on the charger, under my pillow, or on the ground, so I just go to this app to use as my remote.
  • Will change rating to higher when private listening gets fixed 1/5

    I really like the app and I use it a lot. My favorite feature is private listening but the problem is it barely works/ doesn’t work at all. Sometimes it cuts out every few seconds. Sometimes it just plays audio from your tv at full volume. I feel like it’s a great feature in theory, and I just want it to work better. In the current state it feels like we’re beta testing a buggy feature.
  • Privacy Concerns 2/5

    By eric d4444
    Thankfully, Roku released the Roku Remote Pro and I could remove this app. I should not need an app to listen to my TV on Bluetooth. The latency is unacceptable. Secondly, the simple fact that you type in passwords and such into apps. If you have malware on your phone, it could record those keystrokes. Go buy yourself the remote and 3.5 mm headphones and call if a day.
  • Just stopped working 1/5

    By callmebymyrealnamenick
    I was able to use it fine for 5 months give it take and now it won’t even open.
  • Fix remote controls!! 1/5

    By Beepbeeepboopbeeppee

  • Not good 1/5

    By _thaps
    Even when my TVs on it tells me to “wake my device” and won’t connect no matter what I do.
  • Zero stars 1/5

    By TDC0430
    Roku removed yt tv. Non transparency roku platform. Bad precedent to remove apps that don’t play to your liking
