It's constantly saying it cannot connect and that my device isn't available. I've had to uninstall it then reinstall it several times to get it to work and sometimes that doesn't help either. The idea is perfect but it needs some updates. The new update has made it a lot better but one thing that would be great would being able to forward just a small part. All the forward buttons forward too fast and too much of a scene.
Gotta admit ,this app has saved Family movie night many times. However, it's not gonna work say if you move and get a new modem. Thats what I did and set up a new Internet ip adresss. Roku kept searching for the old ip address. So a as long as you stay in the same place with same ip address or at least set up the roku with the factory issued remote if you do change your ip address, you should be fine. All in all great app that controls everything pretty well. Can show a little lag at times.Not too often.
It disconnects more than it actually works half of the time. It's constantly telling me to reconnect or that my roku isn't connected to the same WiFi network. I can use the actual remote and all is good. Everything is connected the way it should but I'm always getting issues. My phone is just easier but I wish it worked better. More stars if it didn't crash so much.
We got a new roku 4 for the livingroom and put the old roku 3 in the bedroom. The remote doesn't work so good after 6 yrs of use so I tried the app. It worked for one day it was great. 2nd day it would not work with the roku 3 only 4. I put the ip address, rebooted, and uninstalled the app nothing. Now after the 5th install roku 3 doesn't even come up anymore. I have a samsung galaxy J3 so it's not the phone must not be compatible with having two roku on the same wifi.
I use this app mostly for the remote functions, since mine disappeared (hopefully to turn up again). App also works great on Win10. It detects the Roku device through wifi, so there's no pesky finagling with the router or numbers or passwords. Definitely recommend for any Roku user to have!
Love the new features. Would be a 5 star review, but one feature I've wished was there that isn't. There should be a way to add shows and movies to your watch list even when not on WiFi connected to a roku device. There have been times that I've been away from home and heard about a movie or show and thought that I'd like to check it out and when I get home I can't remember what it was.
