    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.

    This app is great! I always lose my remote so when I do I don't have to worry about it. I can just sit in bed in the mornings and watch my morning shows all while using my phone while the remote is god knows where. Very useful. Even my family loves it! We are TV people so ALWAYS lose one of our remotes. The only thing that can be worked on is being able to customize the names of the TV's so you know if your connected to the right TV. Also, I think this might be a bug in the coding but sometimes my power button won't. So to those reading this, I recommend this app! But beware you might have a bug like me 😂. God bless those who read this.

    It's very handy. We often misplace the small remote control that Roku provides, so having this app is very handy. And if you have more than device, you can still use it on each one.

    This app sucks. Like seriously I try to type something with the keyboard option but as soon as I try to type it brings up the purchases. Then it decides it's like I pressed the same button thousands of times! I want my money back😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡 If I could rate this app anything that I wanted it would be -50000000!! I'm surprised how people rate this app 5 stars I bet they were paid to rate this app 5 stars.

  • Before you download.... Jan 15, 2019

    By Frandamae
    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.

    I decided to download the app a while ago abd it did what I needed it to do. Then I thought I'd pay and upgrade the app to do all the other things, now it won't connect to the TV at all! I can't even request a refund :( I'd like my money back please.

  • 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

    I thank you developers for making such a great and helpful app that can allow silly people like me that lose a remote the ability to control their TV's again without having to purchase another! You are appreciated! Keep up the great work!

  • 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.

    The app works great. I prefer it to my remote. I love that i can scroll through my channels on my device, from another room, and type a search using my phone’s keyboard. The app itself is wonderful. The issue: I bought the 3.99 Pro version so i could control the power and volume, while my partner stayed with the free version. He can control the power and volume. I’m not sure if he was lucky or I just duped. I didn’t try the volume or power use on my phone prior to upgrading, so I’m not sure if they would have worked for free. You’re welcome for the free 4 bucks! 5 stars for functionality, -1 for my wasted money.

  • 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!

    I misplaced my remote at home a lot trying to hide it from my one year old. so having this remote on my phone helps a lot until I figure out where I had the actual physical remote for the tv.
  • 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.

    It works but why would you have it to where you pay to turn the volume and power that's kinda stupid if it were something that allowed special features like letting you watch whatever you can on your roku TV but not for basic controls

  • 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.

    RIP off artists, they have you pay for features and then dont remember you so you waste money. TV and remote are horrible after awhile. Roku really is for people on a budget and the company let's you know that because they 0 interest in what's going on with their services
