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.
IP address limits are ridiculous. I don't use a typical range and therefore can not use the app. I'm not going to change my entire network just for you. My IP range should not be a factor in your app when it's all my home network. In fact, I may just return the whole thing and get Amazon Fire TV.
Great control over any roku device. No security implementation in local household, so can easily mess with other roku devices on same network. Can stream any media from phone to tv. Very responsive remote. Can listen to audio playing on tv through phone.
Found a lot of glitches with Model # 3700R. This app runs fantastic with 3600R (2016 model). Although I run my phone in the same Wi-Fi network with the 3700R, it never has access to the device unless I synch the device manually from its settings panel. I even tried manually setting IP address of the 3700R device on the app but it still doesn't work. It's a shame that one Roku works the other doesn't on the same network.
No longer able to cast videos from the Roku App, the only thing you can cast with it now is photos, music, and screensaver. You ise to be able to cast videos that was locally on your phone through the app, but not now. Why was this removed/disabled ?
It is really bad at remembering the Roku I'm using. I have multiple Rokus but only use the app for one. However after checking my email or locking my phone, I often have to wait while it looks for Rokus, then asks me which one, connects to it, etc. Makes a quick pause take 10-15 seconds or more to get to. Wish it would just remember my device until I change to a different one intentionally. That said, it still works better than the remote that came with my Roku Stick, which freezes often until you take it the batteries and put them back. I use remotes for my other Rokus that are different models because they work.
Adding to review. Got it to work then one day later it won't connect. I guess if you have a cable modem you have to buy a seperate modem for it to work. Junk
