    By TEACEkc
    I have an iPhone 6 with iOS12.5.5 Since updating the Roku app a few days ago, the app will not open. It just crashes seconds after trying to open it. My new iPhone SE with iOS15.5 works fine.
  • Great, easy to use app! 5/5

    By redsoxfan08
    I use this all the time and have ditched the physical Roku remote (after 2 of them stopped working). Very convenient app and makes searching for and playing movies even easier. Love it!
  • This Roku charges 15$ a month 1/5

    By yellowboygetdoe
    Don’t get this one get the black one with purple buttons they’ve been charging me 15.99 a month I only found out when I checked my bank receipts. And when I tried to contact to get it back they haven’t. Disappointed as I was told it was free, started using the one that was free that have the picture as described above. I don’t write reviews but when it’s about something like this I have especially when it charges me the monthly amount that for one from the store charges for a one time in hand physical one.
  • Not connecting 4/5

    By sdxhsudsnucdf
    My living room tv and my phone is connected to the same internet but it’s not getting all my devices so it’s a four out of five for me
  • Audio through phone rarely works 3/5

    By hikhgjji
    Is it rad to have a remote on your phone if you can’t find the real one? Totally Is the option to listen to audio through your phone garbage that they haven’t fixed in years? You bet.
  • Bad Update 1/5

  • New update broke the app 2/5

    By Whatzit2ya
    The app won’t open since I updated it this morning
  • Great app, but... 1/5

    By Mc panda 6119
    I love this app, but it literally just stopped opening today. I am able to load the app initially, but it crashes after only a second of being open. Please fix this.
  • Loss of Connection 1/5

    By LiamH0214
    Since a few updates ago it’s steady not connecting or finding a TV when it’s on and connected. 4 TVs in the house and it won’t see that any are on. We hit “Wake Up Device” and it runs the whole count down. Doesn’t connect. Pretty useless anymore. We have a few models also. A TCL, a HiSense and an ONN.
  • Bad audio 1/5

    By Brandontheslayer5563
    The private listening feature had a consistent audio skipping and crunching issue. The developers seem to be aware of the issue as there is an FAQ page on how to fix it. The fixes on said page have about a 50/50 shot of working. Anything is unwatchable in the state it’s in.
  • Hasn’t worked in days 1/5

    By vsclaire
    This app hasn’t worked in days. I’m sitting mere feet from my Roku tv, both connected to same internet, tried to manually connect - nothing. I can’t recognize the tv. I’ve done everything to troubleshoot. Not sure what else to do Update: it works for like a month and then will totally stop working again. Can’t even recognize my device even though I’m sitting 2ft away from it. All on same internet. It’s a waste of time.
  • Disappointing 3/5

    By monse11at
    Super lagy never works without taking so long sometimes it just never works…
  • Latest update breaks iOS 12 devices 1/5

    By zumo21
    App crashes on startup.
  • Terrible 1/5

    By Zero_UrHer0
    I have only been able to successfully connect this once. Both my phone and TV are on the exact same network, yet my phone still says that the TV is not on the network. Even putting in the TVs IP pulls nothing. Just use your remote.
  • Unreliable 1/5

    By bbbchio
    Always has issues connecting. Disconnects randomly. Rarely works. I have attempted to use this app with multiple tvs in multiple homes under multiple accounts and there always seems to be an issue.
  • Wont connect 1/5

    By nita0998
    Wont connect at all I made sure my phone and the roku was on the same network still wouldn’t connect entered the IP address and still wont connect
  • Garbage app with no use anymore 1/5

    By Coach 101200 lk
    Why bother using this app when 9/10 times the find device feature doesn’t even work
  • Life saver 5/5

    By hiBC406
    My remote got damaged so this app really came in clutch. I highly recommend
  • Not great 2/5

    By stbrk0555

  • Why remove vidangel? 1/5

  • Amazing 5/5

    By Yellowgal65ju
    I love love love this app it makes using my Roku‘s stick much easier especially when I don’t have any batteries for the old remote
  • Great when it works.. 3/5

    By I want to go on vacation
    The app works for a while and then it has problems reconnecting. Usually unplugging and plugging it back in fixes it. However, it now won’t connect at all. Even with restarts, deleting and reinstalling the app, unplugging it, and practically standing on my head. The Roku device itself works well but the app needs work. I use it to connect with headphones, which I use almost all the time. Please fix it, it’s making me wonder if I should get a different type of streaming device.
  • Amazing but.. 5/5

    I just really won’t to turn up and down the volume but I love so far
  • Roku Review 5/5

    By brotherwood2
    Love being able to remote control TV from Roku app, and ability to individually listen to TV thru wireless headphones at night is awesome; don't wake up the family
  • Doesn’t stay connected 2/5

    By wooshmaster
    The app would be great if there were an option to stay connected to your device. Also, sometimes the app cannot “wake” or turn on the TV.
  • HATR 1/5

    By ok azy
    I hat it sooo match is anoing mr. mom hats it to ms. Dad lvs it nop he hats it toe
  • Not as functional since last update 3/5

    By Daarsees
    I can’t connect my app to my tv since the last update. I used to love the app. Great for connecting sound to my phone. Not anymore
  • Best app ever 5/5

    By k l s 😀
    You know when you can’t find you remote? This is a life saver. When you really want to watch a movie and don’t know where your remote is. This app makes it so much easier!! My cousin lost his remote and we wanted to watch a move this is so handy. 😀😀
  • Bad connection 1/5

    By trashygameihatethisgame
    Loses connection to Roku every 10 seconds even when right next to Roku device, while having full service bars for both Roku and phone
  • A life changing app 5/5

    By notzoey35
    This app is the best I gave it 5 stars
  • Disconnecting 1/5

    By DummyLifted
    I keep having to unplug my TV to make the remote work because sometimes it likes to disconnect and won’t connect again until I do so. It’s annoying. Did it on my last phone and is doing it on my new phone and doing it on my roommates phone.
  • Fix this 3/5

    By Acerlifesaver
    I’ve used this app for awhile now and I keep having bugs it’s not my connection or WiFi. Right now this app is doing a thing where it won’t even let me connect to either tv. Even tho other apps work just fine.
  • glitchy 2/5

    By R&Bluv222
    it works okay, sometimes turning devices on doesn’t work but my biggest peeve is the glitch where if you try to change the volume while you have spotify playing it goes all over the place and you have to use your actual remote.
  • Private listening constantly disconnects 1/5

    By 6$6$
    I only use this app for private listening and it keeps deactivating after one since the “bug fixes” they just made it unusable. I’m furious rn
  • Not connecting. 2/5

    By country.love420
    Everytime I go to connect my app to my tv with the right IP address and everything, it continues to say “A roku device was not found by this IP address.” My tv is on, I have deleted the app, redownloaded it and everything but nothing seems to work. I have had multiple issues with it. Please help me understand why.
  • Lol I killed the rat and I got one more to kill.. 5/5

    By Jolene1222
    Thank you I lost my remote and I can’t find it and then I got rat in my house and then it found the Remote💀
  • If you can get it to work, it’s great 2/5

    By RandomReviewer54321
    About half the time it won’t connect. If and when it does it is very handy. It’s not a WiFi issue so it has to be the ap.
  • Speechless 5/5

    By Briella Lyn
    I usually don’t write reviews but wow, this app is a must. Living with a boyfriend who has a tendency to lose things, this app has saved my butt when the remote is missing. A few other things I love that there is no lag whatsoever when I click a button on the app. I love that I can connect my airpods to the app so if I step away from the TV, I can still listen to my reality tv shows. Or if my bf is listening to his phone on full volume, I can tune it out. Only thing, I wish the keyboard would connect to more apps on the TV. This app def saves you time when it comes to the apps where you can type -> like youtube, netflix, and hulu. I have just been having problems with hbomax. You definitely should have this app if you have a roku (and a significant other)
  • Private listening disconnecting 3/5

    By Drummers_wife
    I loved this app for a very long time! Within the past month or 2 my private listening just disconnects repeatedly by itself with my AirPods. I have to keep turning it back on. Frustrating.
  • Always read Reviews before you update 2/5

    By Undue I OCD. H uihnch h
    Since I’ve been burned so many times I always read the most recent reviews before update and reading the reviews on this I doubt that I will
  • Horrible! 1/5

    By Nvnski
    Can’t find my Roku tv and has no troubleshooting! Just flat out useless!
