  • Issue seeing local devices 3/5

    By 🔳R007
    I have been using this app for awhile.. for the most part it glitches from time to time.. unresponsiveness or connection issue.. but all of a sudden I’m unable to connect to any device.. I’ve removed the devices to try to reactivate them.. nothing.. don’t see anything.. deleted the app and signed back in… still unable to see anything.. all tvs under same network it’s always been. Please help, Concerned Couch Potato
  • Worst one yet. 1/5

    By liloneg59
    If I could give it none I would I’ve had nothing but problems with it not connecting to my tv it doesn’t even try to find it either and when I do all the troubleshooting steps,,bam still messing up app is garbage
  • App is crashing again 1/5

    By mopesorry
    This has been an issue since June 2022 that has yet to be resolved
  • Great app but needs more! 1/5

    By Mason ho
    It’s a good app but you can’t even watch the free movies, they make you buy a Roku device for your tv to be able to watch the “free movies”. The Roku app is not available for the google play store on my Sony Bravia tv and most don’t come with Roku app already installed, so it’s impossible to get it on your Bravia. I really wish that Sony would make the Roku app free and available for the PlayStation consoles and also Sony Bravia tv.
  • Known Issue - Never Connects 1/5

    By r-glenn
    You have to constantly "check connection" on Roku TV in order to keep the app connected. The answer to this issue when researched is, "Roku is known and documented trash, sorry." I try to use the app for headphone listening, but it randomly disconnects to an extent that I'd have to recommend literally any other streaming device if you don't want to reconnect your devices every 10 min just to finish a YouTube video. I assume Roku is popular because it was early to the game, but quickly fell behind.
  • Roku. 1/5

    By damien&nelly
    Roku needs to improve there connection. Sometimes it to work and sometimes it does not. It’s very frustrating
  • Poor connection 3/5

    By Alan4hDr678
    Overall the app is good except when I can’t use it because it will not connect. Both my phone and tv are connected to the wifi but I can’t seem to get the app to connect to my tv. I like the app but please fix this.

  • Remote Listening Doesn’t Work 1/5

    By TXHutch
    About the only reason I use a Roku stick is so I can use my headphones via the private listening feature. Recently stopped working after an app update and I’ve tried everything to resolve the issue including reaching out to Roku support multiple times. Well, my patience has run out. Use google chrome cast. Trust me, it’s not worth the frustration to use Roku.
  • Suddenly Doesn’t Work 1/5

    By Ashtray Municipal
    This all has always worked until the most recent update! Now the app will not connect to any of the TVs in our house.
  • Worst 2/5

    By vzhsjfgfjf
    It’s not letting me connect to my television
  • It’s great, sometimes. 2/5

    By Laurenx1029
    When it will connect it’s fantastic, but when it does not connect (which is most days) I am certainly happy the physical remote still exists.
  • Can’t get it to connect 2/5

    By deemoore70
    It was working fine and now no matter what I do I can’t get the app to recognize my roku stick. When it works it’s great. I don’t understand why it won’t stay connected.
  • worst app ever 1/5

    By sinaloa11
    it’s so useless, it never connects. It only worked good for like 1 week. Yes I’m connected to the same WiFi, I turned off my phone, restarted the tv, etc COUNTLESS times and it still never works. Idk why I even have the app still, deleting it after I’m doing with this review.
  • Problem 3/5

    By gurrllgurrll
    The connecting to a devise never works. It doesn’t connect or turn on
  • Great App 4/5

    By Re-born
    I love this App. I always know where the remote is because I know where my phone is. However the issue I am having is when left open, the app heats my phone up. I had a IPhone 10 and now I have the 13. Both phone over heated a bit where I have to close the app and restart the phone. I just deleted the app and reinstalled. I am hoping it fixes the issue. But other then that, I love this app and appreciate it greatly! Thank you.
  • Excellent 5/5

    By Amy276009
    It works perfectly with both of my TVs I highly recommend
  • Power on or off status 3/5

    By Discrete Genius
    Give us a way to know if the TV is on or off. It’s inconvenient that I don’t know if the TV was powered on or not. When you open the app, or change TVs, sometimes the TV turns on sometimes it doesn’t. Give us a status of the power on or off on the app please. Make it clear and visible.
  • Still crashes 1/5

    By IsEveryNicknameTaken??!!!!!
    It always crashes when I try to use the private listening mode
  • Private listening shuts app down 1/5

    By Suckit!!!2010
    Ever since the latest update/or when I upgraded my phone I cannot use the private listening feature because it immediately shuts down the app every time
  • USED TO BE FREE!!! 1/5

    By Mr.Willzzz
    $30 to use the freaking remote. WHAT CHEAPSKATES!!
  • used to work great then i got an iphone 14 and it hasn’t worked since 1/5

    By lilly🤪🤪💕
    used to love using this app but doesn’t work anymore. hopefully they’ll make it compatible with the new iphones
  • App updated (again)- private listening still crashes 1/5

    By mcor123
    Crashes every time you try to use private listening. I uninstalled and reinstalled, and now it can’t find any of my Roku devices. Got a response from developer asking me to update and try again. Same issues. I’m able to control my devices by manually entering IP addresses (a pain), but private listening still bugged. Update: another update released, same issue. Update 2: another update release, same issue.
  • Very Buggy 1/5

    By Roku App Review
    App rarely connects to your tv on first or even second attempt. The trick is to open it, force quit, restart wifi, and repeat until it finally recognizes
  • Cannot use 1/5

    By mellieb89
    It says to connect to the network to connect to my devices but they’re both on the same network and nothing. Very frustrating
  • Connected to tv 1/5

    By RomanREDD
    It’s not working properly at all
  • Not letting me download!!! 😡😡 1/5

    By justiceimaninavarro30
    This won’t let me download without taking my bank info, I put in my bank info and it says to put it in again and again.
  • Works most of the time 4/5

    By pgfan92
    Removed one star because while the remote app works very well most of the time, when using it as a remote it is occasionally frustrating because it will disconnect from the device even when my Wi-Fi connection is not interrupted. It does this more on my Roku ultra than the Roku tv.
  • App not working 1/5

    By Archie10253
    The app closes unexpectedly quite often. Also when clicking the headphones icon for private listening the app closes and does not allow the use of headphones.
  • Terrible 1/5

    By Hilton 1106
    The app was good until I got a new phone. I used it for when my kids were asleep so I could listen to my tv through headphones. Now the app just crashes and it was a pain just to get it to connect to the tv.
  • Won’t connect to devices!!!! 1/5

    By Bschaezlein

  • Doesn’t work with all phones 1/5

    By Kmnmmdnd
    Doesn’t work with my 14 plus. I have deleted the app and downloaded it multiple times and it still doesn’t find my devices.
  • Putting YouTube kids on Roku TV 4/5

    By saya 33

  • App won’t cut tv on at times 2/5

    I love the app but sometimes it can’t connect to the device and I have great wifi so that shouldn’t be the reason it does that with Hisense Roku TV’s and Phillips Roku tv
  • widget please! 5/5

    By Jmko110

    By gskskg
    Just as the title says. Will not find any devices on the network when using an iPhone 14 Pro Max. Worked great for years before. Even manually inputting the ip of the devices does not work.
