remote and mobile viewing. I have used roku devices for years. The mobile app is a great alternative to using a regular remote control (except for the cheap stick that doesn't support it). Search, captions, resume and ability to adjust quality are all supported. Quality streaming service without a Roku device. 2022 update: the app has gotten even better. Access to home list, saved channels. Best app.

My experience is horrible. It never finds my device ever. I restart, close, open, turn on, turn off, update, nothing works. I figure it's just a way for them to sell their over priced $20 remotes that get lost always. I just bought one lasted a day. The roku app still won't work. Makes me want to look at other streaming tvs.

I primarily use the app as a secondary Roku remote. It works well when I first use but on Android the app doesn't seem to handle losing focus. I will start a show then go back to app after it has been in the background and the app will try to connect to the device and it just never connects and I can't do anything while does I have to force close the app and reopen and reselect the device. Why even attempt to reconnect? I wouldn't mind selecting the device again if sent to selection screen.
