Probably the least annoying free Roku remote there is. No overly intrusive ads that cover things, start playing video randomly, make you click exit (like some of the other ones.) I don't use the official Roku app, because it always stops working after a short while, until you exit then select the Roku device again. No 3rd party apps seem to have this bug. So, living with unobtrusive advertisements is a small price to pay.

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.

Excellent 👍 I am so impressed by how incredibly simple this app is to use. It is extremely responsive (unlike my Roku remote which isn't, and is a battery gobbler) You don't even have to point it at the Roku box. I have the free version and so far I have not seen one ad come up, only a request to try a paid version, but there's no pressure. I just hope they don't try to "revise" this app. It is an excellent app "as is."
