Life saving 5/5
Love this app for lost remotes!! Makes me soooo happy thank you
Good idea, has some issues 2/5
Great idea, but seems to have a lot of issues connecting and the mobile picture screen saver seems broke as it constantly gives errors that storage is full when it’s at <15% and won’t allow you to add a photo
Love the App 5/5
Love this app!! I lost my remote and it works better than the real thing
Must have app 5/5
By Jason 627
With young kids the remotes are nearly always lost. With this app I don’t have to waste time trying to figure out where the remote is hiding. My only complaint is that it usually won’t turn on or “wake up” the TV.
Good but no power button 3/5
Downloaded this app for the silent listening feature. Works great! But there is no power button to turn the tv on/off! The screen shots show one but mine doesn’t have one. Can turn the tv on by pushing the ok button but cannot turn it off. Why? Help!
Works great! 5/5
I really like the app primarily for the convenience of being able to type things in instead of having to use the remote to slowly spell something out. The only thing that could use work is sometimes the app doesn’t reconnect to my Roku and I have to restart the entire system to get it connected... other than that, works perfectly!
So helpful! I love this app.
I can’t link my iPad with this app.
When I decide to use it, I usually end up spending an hour trying to get it to connect or “find” my device, which most times it doesn’t. So I give up. When it works, it’s cool. But it’s more of a headache than it’s worth. Deleted.

No matter what I do, I can no connect my tv to this app. Even if it is on the same network I can not connect it.
My Roku TV Control Volume Broke 5/5
By Unknown Chros
I’m glad that Roku has an app where it has a remote accessibility for their TV’s. My Roku controller volume buttons broke so I really needed a way to use those buttons! Awesome app!
Very Functional 5/5
It has everything you need. You can control the tv from another room. Browse all of your channels and apps.
Support functionality in app is useless. 1/5
The app asks you why you’d like to contact support, which device you have etc... then gives you the option to email/chat/call. You can’t even click the phone number to dial, and when you do call in, the phone tree is completely generic and asks you all of the exact same questions all over again.
Works like a charm. 5/5
My kids lost our remote and I searched high and low for it with no luck. So glad I found this app before buying another one!
I love it 5/5
This app is so helpful! I always lose my remote and the feature were you can you use it helps me a ton. I can always see what’s on. Just a suggestion , it would be great if you access the remote from the lock screen!
Put more focus on the remote 4/5
I understand Roku may be contractually or financially motivated to have the “What’s On” screen be the default screen upon opening the app, but changing that to the remote screen (or making it a setting) would make this app perfect. 9 times out of 10 I’m opening the app to use the remote, usually to confirm with Netflix that yes, I am still watching The Office.
My puppy destroyed my originally remote and this has been good enough to keep me from replacing it, but the ability to set the remote the default screen would be much appreciated.
Great App 5/5
such a good app, so convenient and awesome i love it! and you don’t even need the remote you can just use your phone for everything. absolutely amazing. 10/10.
Private Listening 1/5
I got this app specifically for the private listening feature, I use the regular remote otherwise. The first couple times I used the app it worked great, no issues. However, for some reason now it won’t stay connected. I turn on the tv with the app, connect my headphones, and turn on the private listening. After a short period of time it disconnects itself and when I check the app it acts as if my tv isn’t even on. Then I have to “wake up” my tv which runs through the whole 40 seconds and sometimes doesn’t even work. This is very frustrating and needs a fix. If anyone at Roku is listening y’all need to fix your stuff. Every other app on my phone has an update at least once a week so they can fix bugs and make things better for their customers, where y’all at Roku?
Great App! 5/5
Works great and so nice to be able to control everything on my phone. One suggestion: enable a setting so that we can choose to have the actual “Remote” tab appear first when opening the App instead of the “What’s On” tab.
Thank you 5/5
OMG THANK U SO MUCH I lost my remote and then I found this and I was like oh another fake app! Then I tried it I was like OMGGGG so thank you a lot!
I like & don’t like 4/5
I love this app. What I don’t like is your phone can die. Then you don’t have a controller.
Great app, one annoying feature 4/5
I’ve been using this app for years and I really like it. It’s pretty much completely replaced the physical remote. One feature I really don’t like is that when my phone locks, the application starts over. So when I unlock my phone, instead of being on the remote screen like it was when my phone was unlocked, it restarts itself and goes to the home page of the application.
It doesn’t make me use the app less, but it is an annoying feature.
Search, buttons, extra features, accessibility... everything else is great.
ERICA BONDS 5/5
I so love this app cuz i dnt have to get out da bed for nun lol.........i have gotten real lazy
Needs improvement 1/5
Every time my phone locks the app reads that my Roku device is in Eco mode and will not allow me to access my device without powering it on. Mind you I’m watching Hulu or Netflix. I will attempt to power it on anyway and still no response. I can go through this process 5 or 6 times to no avail without any change. It’s annoying to say the least considering my remote no longer works so this app is all I have to control my device. But at this point I’d rather not even bother.
Just ok. 3/5
Love ROKU 5/5
I like "alternate" tv content, and more selections.
Thank you, ROKU.
Thank you, ROKU for adding ROKU channel.
Love it so far! 5/5
Has worked flawlessly and extremely convenient when my kids misplace my tv remote.
This is great!!!! It’s so easy to use from any angle!!!!!
Doesn’t work on Roku TV 3/5
I have a Roku TCL TV and this app simply doesn’t work. It shows up as an “available device” but it says it’s in eco mode and tries to wake it up... it spins for 30 seconds and nothing happens. This has been happening for months and it still won’t connect. Not sure if a 1 Star is fair so I’ll give 3* since I know it works on actual Roku devices.
iPhone X 1/5
Add support for iPhone X it’s been out for a hot min now quit playing
Headphone don’t work 2/5
Why don’t my headphones work while using my cell phone for private listening ? I have tried to restart the app, delete and restart etc.....
Excellent for cord cutting!!!! 5/5
All the channels I loved plus many that I didn’t know existed and now love as well. Endless content.
Has connected properly twice in 2 years. Device can’t be found by “discovery” or manually entering IP address. Tried all troubleshooting help with no success. Not worth the effort.
Awesome to be able to use this as a remote for my Roku! Also really nice that I can listen to the sound through headphone which is useful when my girlfriend is trying to study.
Only down side is no real authentication when finding devices. I was able to connect to another Roku on my University’s WiFi that was not mine.
Love this app! Tip of the hat to the creators.

It is the best right now in 2017-2018
Lost remote 5/5
Great for when you lose the tiny remote
Got kids? 5/5
Kids are great, am I right?! Especially when their little and like to walk off with everything you use on a daily basis...... like a remote control. 🙁 But with this app I can do everything the remote can do and then some! Thank You Roku for being awesome! We love you!!
I love it 5/5
I always lose the remote especially at night when I get off work which is extremely frustrating, soo it’s a huge relief that I now have the remote on my phone so I’ll always keep up with it , So overall its a great addition to the Roku family
Roku 3 5/5
Love the app it’s faster than replacement remote I purchase.
As remote 5/5
Great for using it as a remote
I thought the purpose of the app is to use it when away from your television so why is it asking for WiFi when it’s set to access cellular data.
Very good 5/5
It allow me to do a lot of thing with the Roku oh recommend it to all my friends allowed me to see my pictures from my phone my videos and I can stream very good device
Please create an iPad app 2/5
Wish there was a version for iPads. C’mon, Roku. You’ve grown too big not to have one by now. iPhone app is terrible on an iPad.
Great little remote app 4/5
I’m impressed at how quickly the app responds (volume, channel etc). I’d give it 5 stars if the app would default to remote tab on launch and if it wouldn’t go to sleep on my phone so quickly.
Bluetooth option 5/5
I love that when I’m going to sleep and my husband is watching a show that he knows will distract me from going to sleep, he can hook up his earphones and I don’t hear the tv.
I LOVE MY ROKU 5/5
This is probably the smartest device I own. I dropped my remote in water & all I had to do was use my app as a remote until I got my replacement. Very very easy to use and easy to install, i love this thing
Loving the new update 🙌🏼❤️
The Best!!!! 5/5
Excelente app excelente dispositivo, gracias ROKU🤓
