Better than the remote with a only two cons so far. First, pro, it's more responsive and I can easily back into a different app. You can continue to watch a show and decide to switch from Netflix to Amazon quickly. Cons... Auto typing can be glitchy and populates Roku so if you go back to change last word on your phone it may get rid of the whole word but only deletes a space on Roku. Also, I really want the headphone jack on my phone to work as audio!!
Very awesome. Pretty exact to the actual Roku remote, but way better as you can type in searches with your text keyboard so it's SOOOO much faster. Only issue I have with it is if I tried to take it to a gf's so we could use it for the night- you can't because in order to add her wifi n enter the pw , you need to already have the wifi connection going n enabled as that's what what the remote works on n gets it's signal to the player thru. So if it's a new one you're trying to save in- it's like impossible . Something needs to be done about that. But otherwise it's GREAT n preferred to the actual remote. :-)
Galaxy Note 2. This is an awesome way to remote! Thanks Roku! No more having to unplug then replug in my different Rokus just to sync my original Roku remote. Was getting ready to purchase another remote, as one of mine had been dropped and stopped working. Now I don't have to! This was WAY easy to download and immediately begin enjoying. GET IT! DON'T WAIT! DO IT NOW! LOL
I love this app, I have a 20 month old who loves to hide the remote. The only reason i did not give this 5 stars is the search used to work but now if I search it will search and come up with what i searched for but when I click for example "watch" next to Netflix, it loads the remote screen again but does not start the show (which it used to) . I have a couple roku2 and roku stick as well as a roku ultra. Fixed that issue would def give this a 5 star. Thank you for the great app either way
App keeps crashing. Bugfix after bugfix and they can't seem to fix this bug. Either fix it or give it up. Not sure what bugs are actually getting fixed each time. The obvious ones aren't. Maybe try baking or something you can actually do. Private listening keeps dropping out. Over and over. It says there's no WiFi connection when the phone is definitely connected. Why can't your programmers figure out what is causing this?
Love the private listening feature. I only wish it also worked while using my XBox One since it is plugged into my Roku TV via HDMI. I don't understand why it's not compatible since the sounds play through my Roku TV speakers... That is my only complaint. Especially since I have a young child that I don't want to disturb while sleeping / napping. I find it a little limiting.
