  • 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
  • Stop deleting my review 1/5

    By review for rok
    Just because yall app is garbage dont try to hide my reviews weak ahh roku
  • No longer even loads 1/5

    By StripedPaisley
    Running iOS 14.2.0, have restarted iPhone and have deleted and re-downloaded app. Every time I open it I just get the Roku logo and a loading circle that freezes and never goes past that. Now both the physical Roku remote (<1 year old) AND the app don’t work. C’mon it’s the time of COVID get this stuff working we’re all stuck at home.
  • Slow app 1/5

    By Teeleex
    This app is sometime slow to load up.
  • It’s not loading fully anymore. 2/5

    By AmberJacq!
    I’m not sure why it’s having loading trouble because in the past it’s loaded fully and worked perfectly and I would give this 5 stars if it wasn’t for it messing up for two days. I’m not sure if anyone else is having this same problem or what but it’s getting really frustrating because I just don’t understand why it would just up and stop working properly.
  • Lazy developers. 1/5

    By thestatistic6969
    New update is dumb. Change it back. All you do is steal money. Get bankrupt
  • App has not been working 1/5

    By CtotheC
    I love having the ease of the app when I can’t find our remotes. However, recently I have had trouble opening the app on any of my devices. This is not the first time it happens and definitely will not be the last.
  • It’s not working 1/5

    By abcdefghijklmpnomajr
    And my daughter is going crazy! Fix it please ASAP even with the update it still doesn’t load to the app.
  • Too many glitches / Won’t open 2/5

    By bree.i.c.
    This app glitches too often. There are times when this app doesn’t work for hours. I don’t have a regular remote, so I either have to just turn my tv off for a few hours or just deal with not being able to pause, rewind, lower the volume, or change the channel. Tomorrow is a holiday, and I’d like for my family to be able to watch a movie together. Sadly, there is no way of knowing how this app will work at any given moment.
  • needs work. 3/5

    By joya1223

  • Absolutely useless 1/5

    By MelissaD672
