It's wonderful to be able to use my phone as a remote, because we're always losing our Roku remotes. We had an issue figuring out which Roku device we were controlling, but they've made it so we can log in and save custom names for them now. Now if we could only stream the video to our devices from the Roku box, that would be lovely! The app doesn't really have to mirror the remote, but could instead reflect the Roku screen content in a more intuitive interface that doesn't require a television. Maybe you could even offer a license or subscription option for people without a Roku device.
Excellent concept! However, extremely laggy. Buttons are a bit too big. Viewing from phone would be nice. Private listening is a wonderful feature!! If the app didn't crash every time I swapped screens to turn on wifi. It wouldn't be so bad. I turn on wifi. Force close. Then re open
My remote was broken by a family member & the down button wouldn't work. So we were changing it manually. Blah! Not anymore. I can't wait to try changing the channel from another room, while someone else is watching 📺.-It works! Freaked my kids out!!!
First I want to say that Roku is fantastic. It is as good as advertised, maybe better. If you think that a channel is junk then do not add it to your list. There are more "Free" channels than any other service though you do have to wade through everything. And the picture quality is fine and does 1080p with zero issues. Make sure you have the Ultra or Premier + model of Roku for the high quality. Cheaper models do not support the formats Picture is superior to my old Chrome cast Now for the remote. It would be great except that it will not recognize my email and password. I got it once after many attempts. But that was it. I can now use it but not add channels as it will not recognize it again. It is fine on the device and website so I know it's the app. It's very frustrating.
I can't answer any of those questions because it's crap and it doesn't work! Keeps telling me my Roku is not connected to the same network as my telephone to use the remote app. And then the solution it gives me would require me to be able to use the remote app! You can keep it I'll stick with cable
This is an excellent app. I have 3 Roku devices. This works flawlessly on all 3 devices (roku 4, roku premiere + and roku 3). I haven't had one problem. The I can even use it to listen to the audio through my Bluetooth headphone on my Samsung S7 Edge. Did I say I love this app? Well I love this app.
