I miss when the remote was the default screen. If you won't bring that back universally, can you least give us the dang option to choose it?? Also, every update lately makes the app load slower, which makes not having the remote as the default even more frustrating and I end up using it much less. It can take several minutes to load, and to hide the pop-ups on the screen that cover the buttons I need to tap to get to the remote. It's easier to just use the physical remote most of the time.

App works well. I was having an issue with the sign in, I would type my credentials and it would immediately say they're wrong(as in, it didn't even seem like it was pinging the server, just a default message saying "your credentials don't match"). Turns out, one of the recent app updates changed it to the point you have to clear your data and cache to sign in. In addition to this, I gave it every permission possible. Finally, I was able to sign in. Otherwise, works well as a remote.

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.
