This app crashes, disconnects, freezes, and does all the other annoying things that poor quality apps do. Hard to believe it was developed by a public company. Roku must spend all that money they raised in the stock market on executive salaries, because they sure don’t spend it on this crappy app.
I wish it worked better.... 2/5
I have a Roku TV, which works just fine...until I use the app for private listening. This app always crashes and takes me back to the Home screen on the TV. ALWAYS. It doesn’t matter what channel I’m streaming, it crashes. Curiously enough the time it takes for the crash can vary, one hour, 30mins, WHATEVER, it eventually does it and leaves me annoyed and having to reboot everything. Sometimes it claims it’s poor WiFi connection (which is not), others it gives no warning and boom! Crashed again!

Just download the app that’s it
Rated 4+ with R rated movies 1/5
Kids can download this app and watch R rated movies as a guest.
Lost remote 4/5
When you walk all around the house to find the remote,, when you could have simply ,walked to the tv —- it’s getting bad , but like myself,we all have a cell phone in our hand probably at all time .
Thank god the the ROKU REMOTE APP !!!
It’s remotely satisfying 😂🤣😜
Worst remote ever 1/5
How can you have your customers fight ads on a remote. There is about a 5 second delay from when you press the button and the action is completed.
Password on DTV. 1/5
By Garrett the cool carrot
Password on Direct TV doesn’t work, works on iPad and I phone ok. Changed it many times. So frustrating
Great app especially for my toddler who would always find the remote and change the channel or take the batteries out to play with. I can hide the remote now and he’s amazed that the TV still works. Being able to turn the tv on and off from anywhere is key. Gave it a 4 star because they keyboard function doesn’t work when you’re trying to type something into a YouTube search for example.
Roku is a wonderful free TV and Movies platform, I am happy with it. 5/5
Thank you so much
Not so good
Get to the point 1/5
When I look up a movie I don’t want 3 duplicate results with a slowly appearing “viewing options” button for each duplicate each leading to different options.
Sick of narcissistic software. Get to the point and get out of the way.
Anything for Steve Jobs to come back to earth.
I’m excited to use this streaming device. However I’m having a difficult time w roku express number 2 device. Signing in is a pain. Also my input device channel flitters really fast when I put in the roku express into the back of tv. What am I doing wrong ?
I lost my Roku remote somewhere in the house and this app saved my streaming life☺️. Works and connects perfectly.
App is very slow and it freezes a
Often very annoying!!!
Roku Updates Killed Best App Function 2/5
When I downloaded this App to work with my Smart TCL TV with Roku. It allowed me to use a mic to change channels. That feature hasn’t worked in 6 months. Guess Roku Updated and managed to nix that function. I would give the App one star, but it does work as a button remote. Other then that it is useless.
What would I do without this app ! 5/5
I turned my volume all the way down. N when I tried to put the sound back up the button on my remote broke. Without this app I wouldn’t be able to watch my Netflix
Too many crashes 1/5
By Sled Dog 1
My Roku crashes a lot and even more so when I use the mobile app.
Can’t connect 1/5
I can’t connect no customer service help
Demanding Performances Daily 5/5

ROKU brings the greatest TV and Movie Magic to your home on demand. Mostly free...
Simple and 5/5
Easy to use and set reliable
Very convenient 5/5
By Bobbyforpresi VLOS/ Mikala
Due to a large amount of guests coming in and out of my house things tend to get misplaced (one of them being my controller for my tv). This app is very convenient being that I lost my remote.
Muy bueno 5/5
I think you should get it if you ask me
Great app! 4/5
Nice for when my husband falls asleep with the remote in his hand! App. works well, I like being able to divert sound through phone speaker and use earphones. Searching is easier with qwerty keyboard function. Yes, great app! 3/21/19: Not sure what happened! Past couple weeks during any show we keep loosing the sound diversion. Pretty aggravating if my elderly mother is resting in next room. Also many “too many connections” errors, I am the only one home/on.
Works great 5/5
Works great. Any negative reviews are from people who can’t figure out that you have to force close the app and re open it to connect sometimes. (All WiFi remotes are the same way)
By Jack Bauer001
This app crashes all of the time. So glitchy
GARBAGE infused with NON STOP ADS 1/5
Don’t inflict this annoying app on yourself.
You get a full screen in your face ad on every second key press. This would make a great joke sequence on Saturday Night Live.
No stars. Would of been 5 before the change honestly 1/5
I don’t like the new remote y’all have going on, You shouldn’t have to swipe to move. It’s very sensitive when you haven’t even finished typing a word or even going to a video you want! It’s very frustrating. Should of just stayed how it was.
How do I add my phone to mirror? It is controlling it as a remote. But how do I add a device?
I love it I actually lost my tv control and now I download this and it’ changed my life.. I love ittt
Must be connected to WiFi...I am! 1/5
I use this app mostly for the remote feature, but it’s terrible as a remote. It rarely connects and when it does it kicks me off within seconds. I’m connected to WiFi and my internet speed is good. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app. It’s so frustrating!!!
Roku remote suggestion 5/5
I recommend a text box to put a number for the volume next to the volume buttons, for a quick volume change, instead of having to tap it 30 times.
It’s very annoying 1/5
By Woof Poota
It almost never works.It always says it can’t wake my tv.Then I have to get up and get another remote.When it works it’s fine but just try not to lose your remotes.
Great App 5/5
Very Useful When I’m tired of looking for that tiny remote.
Grateful but disappointed 3/5
Our roku 2 remote broke last week, have been using this app as a replacement until the new remote gets here. SO glad to have SOMETHING but the app constantly disconnects from our roku, very frustrating. Constant high-speed internet wifi but “could not connect” and “make sure your roku is plugged in and on” while it’s playing netflix... eek. Needs improvement!
Remote is worthless 1/5
The remote keeps needing to be re-paired with device. We rarely get through one day without having to have to go through the whole pairing sing and dance.
Don’t think you’re taking my Roku! 5/5
By Sin DVicious
Wouldn’t give up my Roku for any other service!!! Thanks Roku!
It never works 1/5
It says I need to connect to WiFi when I’m already connected to WiFi and won’t work. It’s been months. Please fix this!
My review 5/5
Just awesome nuf said nuf said
I love this 5/5
It’s the best
This APP is AWFUL!!! 1/5
By Nick bruh
I have an I phone 8 and it will not connect to my TCL smart tv that has Roku built in. I have called Best Buy, Roku, and TCL and they don’t have an answer for me. This will not work with my phone. If anyone has any answers or solutions, I’d love to have them please!!!
Remote refuses to connect 1/5
I stay on campus at FAU so as a gift my mom got me a roku tv. The app contains a remote itself so I thought I’d just connect it to the tv and use that instead. But there’s an issue, the IP address that my tv shows me is apparently nonexistent because everytime I type it in the app tells me that there’s no tv with that IP address. If y’all could fix that I would chance the stars given instantly
Better than the physical remote, barely. 1/5
Would be nice if it would stop dropping connectivity randomly & for no reason
By okp mmkm
Must have! 5/5
Super easy to use remote! No reason why you shouldn’t have it.
Messed up setup. 1/5
No help to be found. I hate Roku.
Good app!!! 5/5
I Love this app...I lost my remote to my Roku & this works just as well maybe a little better!!
