Review from Rick Sirl
Great! Great app only being able to play video would make it better, but works great on all the phomes and tablets in the house.
Works good It works pretty good, only thing I would like to see changed is the ability to approve mobile apps to specific roku boxes. At the moment, any device on your network can access the box with this app. This causes alot of fighting and trolling with my kids. I would prefer to just pair my mobile device with the box and prevent everyone else, without having to have my device and box on a separate net. Also, would be awesome if I could statically set the IP configuration for the box.
Fantastic app I use it a lot there only one issue I have two Roku TV'S plus an old Roku plug in device on another tv, when using this app to switch to another TV I have to remember which code with what TV I would be great if one could assign a name to each device. Other than this great and more practical than the remote that came with the TV. One more thing have you ever thought about adding an on and off switch to the app. More over with me I always have my phone and the remote gets mislaid sometimes.
Makes life simple! Remotes disappear. The kids hide them. The dog takes them out for a chew snack. Who knows. Maybe they are the epic pride of gnomes. I know where my phone is. I can control multiple Roku devices from one app. It is like finding your fav chocolate in that monster box... And there is no finger poke in it. Bonus!
Super Helpful! With five people and numerous guests coming and going, our family is constantly misplacing our remote. This app has been incredibly helpful! There are other features to the app as well that are also very useful and they all make navigation of our Roku tv more accessible.
Thank God I destroyed my living room looking for a lost Roku remote. Then it occurred to me to download the app and I realized I can use my phone as a remote! This is great because I can use it on either TV as it will synchronize to a separate device in seconds. I'll never be buying a replacement remote again. I actually like this app better than the real remote. It seems less finicky.
Can't Complain!! Loads quickly and has all the features I like and has a great layout that makes using it very easy. A lot easier using the app on my g2 than using the provided remote. Good job Roku!!! **Update 8/14/16 Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+: This app is still great on all my new devices since posting 2 years back but I would like to see voice control fully integrated from the app directly on the TV. Also I would like a more smooth and more easily viewed UI. Also if you could create a more fluid widget for androids.**
