WOW. Downloaded it and it worked immediately. I didn't wven have to tell it to connect, it just did it. But that's not even the best part. The best part is that this app is JUST A REMOTE! The first-party Roku app is clogged with useless junk, ads, and it has to rediscover your Roku device every time you open the app. This app is clean, simple, and works out of the box. Absolutely worth a few bucks to unlock pro features, simply to support this developer. Awesome job.

Had it only a few days. So far, really useful. I hope I can trust it to continue to work! The touchpad went blank one day and I had to reinstall-- now OK except I still have to use my real remote to turn one of my Roku TVs on/off. Works fine on the other one. Not sure what is meant by "sound effects" so I leave them on. Can't find anywhere in the app to get explanations-- "Help" is not helpful for getting more specific info about this or other features.

Very nice Roku remote app. Still, after a couple of years of complaining, it still doesn't save device custom names. Tap the pencil edit icon, change name to Living Room, save. Come back later and it's changed right back to the device's default name. Not really an issue if you only have one device. I have three devices and it's hard to remember the default names of them to tell which is which. Also, the developer does not answer emails. I've sent several.
