I was convinced to purchase pro because I thought it would be an awesome upgrade. What I didn’t know is that the volume wouldn’t work even though my roku supports it. Also, if my family uses it, they have to purchase the upgrades themselves, which I can almost understand but it was not clear before the purchase. Further,if I want it on my iPad, I have to purchase the upgrades again, this I can not understand since it is my own device and I have already paid for the upgrades. By far the most disappointing aspect is the difficulty in finding away to contact support. Perhaps some of my issues are fixable however the only way I could find to contact support was through a review. No contact info on the App Store and if you click on app support you get a website with only basic information and still no way to contact the developer. Hopefully we can all get some support and information moving forward.
Before you download....
Please do not download this app. It is a third party app and charges $1.99 simply to use the volume feature. And it doesn’t end there. It charges also to search the channels via the app page. I was confused. Please download the “Roku” app. I downloaded this one bc it was the first one in the lost. I always trusted the first app on the list when I search for an app. Not anymore. This third party is listed first but it is not the “real” app. I am not sure why Roku allowed this to be but it is wrong. The app does nothing until you purchase the features to use. This is a total rip off. We have to stand up to this kind of ridiculous greediness. Thank God my husband calmed me down and helped me realize that I did not download the same app he downloaded. Totally FREE and there are GREAT FEATURES ON IT.
Better than the other substitute remotes!!
Love this app which I stated using for a substitute when my Roku tv remote broke. Now it's just a habit and it's just easier to locate your phone/tablet over searching for a lost remote! Works better than other apps I have tried which lag and have ads. The only con is that sometimes I have to close out of the app and go back into it so that my tv registers the commands. Other than that, definitely recommend!
Why do I have to pay to change the volume
One of the main features of a remote is changing the volume. My Roku remote recently broke so I had to download this app and I discovered that many options that came with the remote I got with the TV are are locked behind a pay wall in this app. It is ridiculous to me that a app as simple as a remote substitute requires you to pay actual money to change the volume! I have paid Roku enough money by buying the smart TV I don't want to have to pay them more money to change the volume on my channel. As we become more and more attached to the digital world we have to stand up to anti-consumer things like this! I wish I could uninstall this app but I am forced to use it
I got this app after I accidentally put my remote in the wash with all my throw blankets from the couch. It really works! I bought the upgraded version for $4 because the free one was kind of limited and $4 isn’t much to pay for a functional remote. The only problem I have is that I can’t turn my tv on or off with it, I have to use the button on the back of the tv for that. Besides that, it’s perfect! Definitely worth it.
Better than my actual roku remote
Works better than the actual remote I kid you not, my roku remote even brand new has always been pretty crappy and had a major delay then I hen the battery goes the response time I so slow that it scrolls 10x after I stop pressing buttons and doesn’t respond until 30 seconds later so the fact that this app works almost instantly as a real remote would .... I LOVE IT
Read my review, it's honest, and I understand
The main thing I like is that I can use it on iOS 8. I use an old ipad2 as a media / comicbooks / remote. Many app developers go with Apple's planned obsolescence and make their apps require the newest iOS. These guys get it, the app performs perfect as is. I love this. Maybe the world isn't all businesses trying to exploit consumers. I paid for premium, and it was worth it. Thank you, developers.
It Works But...
The remote works fine, just as it’s supposed to but it has this one extremely annoying quality. Every time I use the app (ex: to pause a movie/tv show) and then exit off of the app it turns my volume off. Literally every single time. It’s extremely annoying and I don’t know why it’s happening. Tried to reach out to support but there’s literally no way of contacting them. Pausing a movie or tv show isn’t worth having to turn my volume back on 100 times a day because of this app. I’ll be uninstalling this and just using the remote I have and pressing the back button if I have to walk away.
My remote was lost. I bought a new one and hated it it was slow and not WiFi. I found the one I lost and was happy until it died. As told by the customer service to download it on my phone but I have my iPad at my side when I am in my chair watching tv. I downloaded it and it is as fast as the original one. Very handy and not easily lost
Really good!!! One problem...
The only problem is is turning down the volume, I checked on my phone and iPad, and it works perfectly for turning the volume up but needs a bug fix for turning the volume down! It seems to work for about one to three clicks then just dont work until I turn up the volume really loud and then back down (which even then barely works) That’s the only bad part! Actually works
I like it! But here are some thoughts...
Great app, performs well, there never seems to be any issue connecting to my Roku 3600x, and the latency on a Wireless N network is minimal at best. Exception: the typing. The lag between typing and the text appearing on screen is significant. Given that there’s little to no lag using other controls, maybe we’ll see a fix in an upcoming patch? Things I’d like to see: -Haptic feedback when pressing buttons -Moveable channels tiles, so I can sort my channels by my most-used. -Volume-level meter would be helpful, so I’m not eternally holding down the volume button -Show which Roku I’m connected to on the Remote tab/screen. We only own one Roku right now, but we will own another soon, so that could cause some issues.
Just get the free app - save your money
The free app worked great, but I only gave a 3 star rating because of the paid features I was was enticed into buying. I should have saved my money. When I choose channels, sure I see all my Roku apps, but as soon as I choose one of my apps, I’m back to the free feature that has the arrows to navigate. At that point you need to be able to see your screen because it’s not on the app. Also, my volume control in the app doesn’t work.
The fact they want you to pay ( too much in my view- you’re close to just buying another clicker) for the obvious convenience of selecting channels as opposed to the one step navigation that’s in the “base” version. Plus, I can’t turn on my tv or use volume- an extra?! Haven’t bothered to investigate. If you’ve lost your clicker ( or the dog ate Them as in my case!), and you can turn on your tv , it does the basic job of navigating thru up/down, l/r and select just fine.
Better than replacing AAA batteries
I love that it can type from my iPad and quickly move between apps and home. The only reason I give it three stars is the volume control is not dependable. My iPad manual volume is broken and the only way to change volume is my iPhone. You cannot control the volume with touch screen controls. Even with manual volume down is slower than volume up.
Saved our Day
The store manager at 69th ave and Bell Daniel Homan is awesome. We were have issues with our warranty replacing our couch because that couch was no longer being made. He stepped in and found us a similar replacement couch and is having it delivered Free of charge. Thank you Daniel. Your very professional and I’ll be back to Ashley based on this moment.
