A great remote control app with multiple options to select a channel or shiw to start watching, or work as a normal remote control. The good news is that this app will let you use your phone keyboard for searches or passwords instead of an on-screen keyboard, but the bad news is that apps on the Roku appear to be allowed not to let you. Loses a star for that, and a bit of a cluttered interface, but excellent overall.

Since the physical remote breaks before the batteries die, this is the most used app in my home! I'm really glad it works as well as it does. I've even set up two phones as remotes and played audio out of both at the same time and it is true stereo, give it a shot(TV roku's don't play audio from the app, for some reason, but I have a stick so I don't care).

App constantly stops working. Works okay for a few days, then it stops altogether. Delete and re-download the App and it will continue to not work. Guess we'll just have to completely replace our remote. Don't bother leaving the app when it does work cause then you'll have to close and reopen the app to reconnect to your roku. This could be such a brilliant tool and it just doesn't quite make it.

Hello! Always be sure that you are utilizing the newest OS on both devices. The issue you described typically relates to a power management setting—you'll need to review your mobile device's settings and disable the "battery saving" or "data saver" setting. You may want to try uninstalling and reinstalling the app as this can usually help, too.

What's new

- Fixed a deeplink issue to some specific content.
- Updated translations.
- Fixed an error accessing specific content in the Save List.
- Other minor bug fixes and performance improvements.
