    So here is the thing! So I got the app. And it was.......Awesome! I always thought it was cool using a iPad and it was so cool! Get the app! The only way is that to unlock it, is too... I meant that the way to unlock it is you have to there a device with a red and green. Press the red button. For sure, it will work, so people say it’s a 1 Star, but when try this, mind blown? Yes mind blown!get the app, please! But there well, you know you have a volume on your iPad. Press it, and there is a %25 on mine, and keeps leveling up! And that’s the only problem. But still get it. Enjoy! From: Anna

    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.

    I used to have no issues with this app. Then recently, I can not rewind easily. I have to hit the back arrow each time for 10 seconds, when before I could hold it down and it would continue at a fast pace. THIS is very annoying. Other than that, thankful to be able to have a remote since I lost mine. I think my kid threw it away. ( Did not take stars off for my kids behavior)

    Very glitchy. I would try to scroll in a direction once and it would skip over what I wanted to select. I tried to clear cliche and the likes also uninstall and reinstall because I did pay to have all features available. But nothing worked. I found a app that works like a charm and doesn't require you to pay for features. I will be seeking a refund. I would give this 0 stars if I could.

    Too many ads. I understand making money off of the app but when I get 6 ads (no exaggeration) by the time I've finished typing my email this is a problem. They aren't even skipable ads. Do yourself a favor and avoid this app and use the hard remote it came with. You will be able to search for content while keeping your sanity

  • Why do I have to pay to change the volume Sep 13, 2018

    By Prequelhater
    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

  • It Works But... Sep 29, 2019

    By ZambotTheShadow
    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.

  • Roku phone remote Aug 9, 2019

    By Everynameistakenso496838
    I lost my remote and I tore my whole house apart looking for it and then someone told me about this app and I got it. Not saying I’m thankful I lost my remote, but I’m so glad I found this app because it’s so convenient and easy. I’m always on my phone when I’m in my room, so I can just turn on the tv just like that. The remote on the app is also really easy to control and figure out. The only thing that got me was they don’t give you the option to control the volume, but you can buy it for 1.99.

  • Scam app Aug 24, 2019

    By Ashdgreen
    I downloaded this app and it was neat, except you have to pay for volume control! Volume control worked for one day... sort of. When you take the phone out of the room the volume goes back to zero. I tried adjusting all sorts of settings, refresh the app, ect. Nothing worked. Now (the day after purchasing the volume control) it won’t adjust plume at ALL, it just stays on zero. Tried to get app support but there is no way to contact the company.

  • Better than the other substitute remotes!! Oct 4, 2017

    By Veronica_Trish
    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!

  • Need volume button Jun 13, 2020

    By dfotm
    I know this may be a petty request, but, my iPad case covers my volume key because it is an after market case. Anyhow it would be groovy to have a button on the remote screen. Also having the select button in the middle of the arrows can be a bit cumbersome when I’m using my phone. I had a glitch today that I had to stop using my phone and switch to my iPad. It wouldn’t let me change the volume. Weird huh? All in all a useful app. Thank you!

  • Roku for iPad Jan 17, 2018

    By MojoSweetly
    I was glad to find this app amongst the numerous others with Roku in its title; my Roku remote control apparatus has stopped working entirely. I am able to crawl in a frustratingly slow manner using this app to access Netflix and PBS, but only barely as the app stops and completely freezes when I'm attempting to choose a show or film. The app is terribly glitchy. At least there is some sort of alternative to the Roku's completely limp apparatus. And yes, I've tried replacing the batteries.

    works great, but......their is no free trial of the paid versions. I would like to try the paid controls to see if it's something worth paying for 1st (& to see if works) but the free control panel works wonderful. No problem at all. I actually really like it. Just wish I could try the rest out b4 buying that's all.

    i thought highly of this app cause it's cheaper than a replacement and convenient, but i may say it is glitchy and power doesn't always work😞.. While trying to brag about this robyte app , I was recommended to try another app FREE & watched their power button work right then and there wasted 4 hard eard bucks

  • Pro Purchase Does Nothing Nov 2, 2020

    By jackofalltrades442
    I’m really not sure how to rate this app. On the one hand, I like the interface, and it does work with my Ultra Roku. However, expecting that the Volume Controls and the Power Button would work with the Pro features, I paid the nearly $4 for it, but I see no visible differences in the interface. No power button. The on-screen message tells me that my Ipad volume hardware buttons will control the volume - they don’t. So, I have basic functionality even after having paid for the Pro upgrade. Update: There is a power button and it will turn the unit off, but not back on. I get the message that “Cannot connect.” So, I still have to use the physical remote, which kind of defeats the purpose. The unit responds to the Ipad hardware Volume buttons only in that the little speakers with the relevant “+” or “-“ symbols appear, but it has no effect on the TV or the Roku Ultra device.
