6/19/24 ;I don't understand the high reviews of the app. I feel there are false reviews here. Seriously the most awful glitchy app i've ever use. When it works, it's good. Another thing, The sound and The headphones glitches at least every 30 minutes.. So disappointed since that is the main reason I subscribed. That said, the app stalls, disconnects, the sound will get static and then just disappear, the app needs to be reloaded. Just some of the things I've experienced in 2 days use.

Great, easy replacement since my dog ate my remote. My only complaint is that the app will disconnect often, and reconnecting can take a few seconds. This can be problematic when you want to change the volume quickly. It's an absolute game changer when it comes to typing into apps on the TV.

I freaking love this remote app... I can pull it up on my phone and just select to resume watching any of my last like 10 shows without having to think about which app each show was on. On top of that, I lose the remote 10x more often than I lose my phone. plus I have two roku TVs right next to each other and with this app, I can select which TV I want to control as opposed to the remote that controls both TVs. 10/10 recommend. 5 star reviews from me are NOT easy to get.
