Roku - Official Remote Control app reviews

  • Good but not great 3/5

    By Me-Dec-2012
    The app for the phone is good. Works as it should, but the app for the watch..... if I have to open the app on my phone and connect to a Roku device each time in order to use the watch app.... why wouldn’t I just use my phone app?
  • From half broken to non functional 1/5

    By Mhhgdsdfghhhbjjiii
    App used to work 50 percent of the time and just stopped working the last couple days. It doesn’t even render all the remote buttons after connecting.
  • App glitching all of a sudden 1/5

    By Madeleinetr
    I have used this app for two years with no issues and for the past two days it has been glitching and the remote is not working.
  • Completely useless 1/5

    By bchfgshgkfuug

  • It ok 🥲 4/5

    By miileyyyy🥲
    I don’t know how to cage my Romulo 🥸
  • Can’t use real remote after using this app! 1/5

    By Pingless
    Have to reboot and repair real remote. Not worth the hassle!!!!
  • KURAPIKA_kurta 5/5

    By its a great game thx
    It’s a great app but sometimes it really dosent connect to the tv other than that it’s Great:D
  • Use to be great 1/5

    By whimzzee
    I’ve happily used this app for several months. Suddenly it stopped turning the tv ON. Once the tv is on all functions work including OFF. I would have contacted the developer directly but could not find a way to do that. Customer support just refers one to articles. And yes, I deleted and reinstalled to no avail.
  • Connection 3/5

    By Dr. us gg bc vc
    It does not want to stay connected to the TV
  • a lot better 4/5

    By SisterCray05
    this app was literally so annoying. it always disconnected from my tv and never worked. then i deleted it and found my remote. i lost my remote again and i re-download it and it ACTUALLY WORKS. period
  • Private Listening is Busted 3/5

    By Bill Kron
    Please fix private listening. It works for a minute and then goes absolutely sideways. Let me know if I can provide any more information.
  • You should download it💖 5/5

    By that girl roxy980
    I love this there is no adds that get in the way + you don’t have to reconnect over and over when you get on it and it automatically connects I love it💖
  • Landscape view?? 4/5

    By Brooklyn boy 116
    4 out of 5 stars. Overall works as good if not better than the physical remote. However on the iPad the UI just gets bigger in portrait view. Period. It would be great if the UI would rotate along with the iPad. I’m holding that last star hostage until that function gets into the update..
  • Omg don’t hesitate to get!!!!!!! 5/5

    By jyfgkuyvbfkuyvv4yvhouewfuo
    I love to watch tv in my room and I also lose the remote all the time .Then I found this and I was amazed I had found an efficient resource that is so easy to pare with any “Roku Tv”.
  • Bluetooth Drops Connection 4/5

    By Ace24367
    When I connect my Bluetooth headphones to the Roku app remote the connection drops within 3-5 minutes of connecting. I’ve tried it with several Bluetooth headphones it appears to be a technical issue within the app.
  • Could use Updates 3/5

    By Hot~N~Sexy Firefighter
    I love the convenience of having an extra remote for my wife & I right on our iPhones. But needs a little more updates for controlling volume, turning on, & turning off the Roku Device on the App.
  • Need a widget 3/5

    By CManch01
    With the new IOS update I would really like a Roku widget
  • Great app :) 5/5

    By ;) lis
    Sometimes acts up but overall is extremely convenient and it’s nice to be able to use when unable to find a remote and to download apps and listen to what is playing on your tv through headphones!
  • Kids Lose your remote? No problem!! 5/5

    By RCaroon88
    I downloaded this app fully expecting to be annoyed by it either not working, or being a pain to install. IT WAS SO EASY AND FAST! within a minute I was back to streaming. Now I can look for the missing remote while still watching my fave show 😁😁😁
  • Works........sometimes 3/5

    By ShadyerGrady
    This app is AMAZING.....when it works. It may be my internet or the app. But if it is with the app I would like it to work, I mean it does sometimes but not all the time and it’s really hard to get it to work so that’s why I’m giving it three stars. It works but only sometimes.
  • Private listening crashes YouTube app after update. 2/5

    By Beholdson
    This app was working well but since the latest update, private listening has become near unusable with the YouTube app. It’s become less reliable overall but is at its worst whenever using it with the YouTube app. The audio stutters and skips and causes the video to buffer repeatedly until YouTube crashes. The problem stops once I turn private listening off so it can’t be the YouTube app. This is one of my most used features, please fix.
  • App is a joke 1/5

    By minnashl
    I just bought the ROKU Express & connected it to my home network today. The app still cannot detect roku, after disconnecting & reconnecting to WiFi on both roku & phone. And I have followed all the step by step troubleshooting steps that are on the roku website.
  • Quick & Helpful 4/5

    By mya_akire0
    it’s a very good and helpful app that i can use on my phone. it has beneficial things such as being able to turn the volume up with my volume buttons on my phone, and picking the channels from the app, and also being able to type. it makes things much quicker. the only thing i don’t like is how slow it loads at times or having to get up to turn the tv on because it doesn’t always allow me to turn it on using the app. other than that it is a great & quick app.
  • This app is amazing! 5/5

    By Lonipoo
    I like this app because you can play your favorite tv shows and movies! I also like that it’s on your phone instead of the actual remote cause sometimes we lose it so it’s very helpful because it’s like your second remote!
  • Alyssa 1/5

    I loved this app for a long time. Why in the HELL would you make usable buttons into a thin line that I have to stare at in order to ever utilize it? I’m deleting this app if it’s not remedied. This development was asinine. Change it back or I will use a different app. They’re supposed to imitate BUTTONS.
  • Doesn’t work anymore 1/5

    By xetawaves
    App just stopped working. Can’t get it to recognize any devices.
  • Simpsons no sound !!!! 1/5

    By Aaasaaasaaaadfedfhuhfe
    For months no there is no sound on the Simpsons when private listening. 11/29/2020 still no sound Disney Plus ****
  • Doesn’t stay connected 1/5

    By Kzandy
    The app keeps losing connection to the tv so you can’t control it.
  • Very helpful 5/5

    By Roku watcher 2020
    This app is very helpful for when your remote doesn’t work or if you can’t find it. I highly recommend this app.
  • Wish it was better 2/5

    By temetito2
    App is ok. Comes greatly handy when the remote gets lost so much. But it’s too annoying when you’re trying to listen on private and the app just keeps disconnecting it saying there’s an error or problem related to the signal even tho the signal is perfectly fine. Also makes what you’re watching lag a lot when you lock your phone or with the app open on screen. Such a downside and very disappointing, which is mostly why I give just 2 stars.
  • App loses connection 1/5

    By M.J.D.S.
    App loses connection and won’t reconnect until I turn the tv off and turn it back on manually
  • Garbage app. So try not to lose your actual remote. 1/5

    By Immikedude
    This app always crashes. The remote feature re-arranges itself so it’s not usable.
  • Saving 5/5

    By Pictiword
    This app is amazing! When you lose your remote then just get this app and your saved! I’m grateful for this app!
  • Audio problems 2/5

    By Vizuall
    Works fine to control the TV. has major issues with personal audio streaming through my AirPods Pro’s. I’ve reinstalled the app multiple times to get it to work without success. I’m running a brand new iPhone 12 pro with brand new AirPods Pro and the most updated OS and app. Why doesn’t this work?
  • Maybe have the roku app let phone have hotspot on for tv 3/5

    By Mia Lidren
    So my remote just broke and I’m trying to use the app for the remote. Now I don’t have internet like xfinity or stuff like that for WiFi so I’m using my phones hotspot I would say maybe be able to still use the roku app even with the phones hotspot on. I’m using my phones hotspot for my tv.
  • Awsome 5/5

    By bdbxhxhxhdbakjCzbbd
    I used to have this app and regret deleting it because I lost my control and right now I need it and I really work totally should get it :)
  • Doesn’t work 1/5

    By The Bird King
    Will not recognize my TCL Roku TV or my other Roku. Yes they are all connected to the same wifi network.
  • Scrambles password 1/5

    By MN079
    Works great overall, but has a fatal flaw. When I copy a password from LastPass and paste it into any Roku app it scrambles the password.
  • Bad 1/5

    By mikey2408
    Half the time this app don’t work
  • Love this App 5/5

    By Kim Fung Toi
    I love this app! I use it more than the tv remote.
  • Terrible 1/5

    By Silver_s13
    This app used to be awesome. How convenient to be able to use your phone when you lose the tv remote. Now, it takes forever to connect and it only doesn’t that 10% of the time. Open it up and it says connected, click a button and it comes up with a message that say “now connected” and doesn’t do anything
  • Great 4/5

    By TurtleAndHare
    Great app, would give it 5 if the channel was not included
  • No HBO Max 1/5

    By Rockasarus
    Unfortunately there is no HBO Max, so we’ve switched our 4 TVs to Chromecast with Google TV. It’s cheaper and less restrictive.
  • Piece of poop app 1/5

    By roku aka poop
    I wont be touching anywhere near the off button but it will automatically turn my tv off, very glitchy and slow the only reason why i got this app is because i accidentally washed my real roku remote in the wash and dryer
  • Terrible 1/5

    By Eren1237643
    The app has too many glitches and freezes super annoying
  • App doesn’t work at all 1/5

    By Lavender707
    With this most recent update, the app doesn’t work at all. My phone’s up to date, I have no problems with my wifi or anything — the problem is this app.
  • Unreliable 1/5

    By William Yin
    Lags, delayed inputs, fail to load.... many issues
