Review from Shadoe Haze
Awesome Works great and exactly as advertised. I find this MUCH more convenient than the Roku remote and I always have my phone on me instead of remembering where I put the remote I just whip the phone out, hot the short cut and instantly I'm connected.
This app is great. Somehow I lost my original remote and wondered if there is an app for that. Yup, and it's better than the remote because it also shows a layout of the channels I have installed. It also has a keyboard function ...(I haven't tried that part yet) but I'm sure it's better than clicking away searching for letters
this app is terrific. i've been using it about a month and it actually works better than the original ROKU physical remote control. everything i could do on the physical control, i can do with this app from my phone. it's better for it has fewer line of sight (LOS) constraints than the actual physical control. it offers just what you want. about two months ago, the original ROKU control i got failed and i ordered a new one. if i had this app, i would NOT have ordered the replacement control.
The remote control functionality works fine, but I mainly use the app for the "Play on Roku" feature - streaming a video from my phone to my TV. It works fine for a while, but the video stops playing if I switch to a different app for a while. To make matters worse, the app doesn't have "resume playback" functionality, which can make finding where you left off a genuine challenge. ▪Mobile Device: Samsung Galaxy S6 (with power saving mode turned off) ▪Roku Device: TCL Roku TV
We lost our regular remote and downloaded the app to our tablets and phones. It works well, but sometimes you can push left or right and it goes too fast, and there are times it goes from the "your remote" section to "your channels" and doesnt come back on even when you push the option. I just close it and re open it, after that its back to normal. All in all a good app.
Same confusing interface as physical Roku Express in constantly moving station icons around seemingly based on most recently viewed. That means a constant shuffle where sports such as college basketball and football are concerned, which frustrates us constantly when trying to find which sites are showing our favorite teams from one game to the next. An option to fix visual position of site icons would be HUGE improvement!
I love this app! However lately I've had an awful time connecting it to my Roku. My Roku turns on and gets to the home screen then my app starts to malfunction and leaves me stranded on a blank white screen acting like it's loading. Hopefully an update coming very soon! This is my only source of television and it really sucks not being able to watch anything!
