  • Area to Improve Aug 23, 2019

    By Zayzay374827
    Downloaded this like most others after breaking my original remote. After first downloading for free I found it quickly necessary to purchase the app because using your remote to change the channel from an advertisement, just to get another advertisement on your remote was quite annoying. The $2.00 purchase was definitely worth it. The digital remote works even better due to the fact that I now have a keyboard to type into rather than selecting characters individually. I have no issues with the remote at all, but the app would get an INSTANT FIVE STAR RATING [IF] every time you clicked a button your phone would give you haptic feedback. It’s very difficult to know what you’re pressing without getting a little vibration. Please Rokie developers, a haptic feedback option for control inputs would be highly appreciated. Thank you!

    Lots of time ap is not connecting for what ever reason I have to disconnect from wifi and reconnect or restart my phone. The ads suck... While in the midst of attemptimg to find something to watch an ad will populate and it delays rhe search. When I finally get it to work it overall gets the job done. I appreciate having the option. I don"t know where my 3 year old could have possibly put my brand new tv remote!
  • Device rename feature?? Mar 8, 2020

    By The Hot Sexy Taco
    I love this app, it’s so smooth (I actually can’t recall it ever skipping or glitching or anything like that) and convenient... I paid for no ads and I have 0 regrets since doing so. However, I think it would be fantastic to have the ability to rename the different Roku devices connected to the same WiFi network as my phone... For instance, there are 3 different Roku Expresses at my home and it’s a mildly inconvenient guessing game until I land on the Express I’m looking for - sort of just trial and error. I’ve tried searching this app for such a feature but haven’t been able to locate it anywhere, so if there’s one thing I could improve about Rokie, I’d implement an option to rename the different devices connected to the WiFi network that one is aiming to connect to from his/her phone

    3 stars because I can now turn my TV on, off, volume up and down but there are really no other navigation tabs, I can get to different channel apps but no way from there to choose what I want to watch smh ... The TONS of ads wouldn't bother me so much if this was actually functional. I SERIOUSLY need to find my remote or buy a new one
  • Restoring purchases Oct 4, 2020

    Okay so the remote is awesome. But I’m not going allow you to keep making money off me. I originally purchased on my old phone. Got a new one, restored all my apps, and yours wouldn’t restore my purchase. Oh well. I paid for it again because of how awesome it works. But I open it today and literally ad after ad it’s almost unusable. And again, your ‘Restore Purchase’ button still does not work. Your not getting another $1.99 from me. I wonder how many others you’ve done this too. Seems like a scam to me. Don’t let the app milk you for money. For 9.99 you can replace your Roku remote and not have your phone in your hand all the time.

  • TCL VS OTHERS Jan 22, 2020

    I purchased a high dollar tv at one of the big box retail stores, when I got it home it didn’t work and you had to be a rocket scientist to operate the remote. After several hours of confusion and not knowing what to do with it, I boxed it up and took it back to point of purchase. While there I bought the same size tv a TCL brand, which they tell me is a off brand. I had out the box and hung on the wall in minutes. It has the user friendliest remote I’ve ever encountered and with a 4K UHD set, every picture is crisp, clear and just a joy to watch. If I’m the market for a new tv I highly recommend the TCL brand. You will not be disappointed. RTJ.

    You should really buy this app because like if you lost your remote or if it’s like a batteries or something this can work and it’s just an amazing app and I really love it and it actually makes cleaning fun for some reason but the only problem is if you press it like a one or two buttons or maybe even three like an ad pops up and then when you press like the skip button it just it’s just so little that like it just takes you to the download this app today and it’s so annoying but otherwise this is an amazing app and like you should download it.

    I got the app as a replacement for the remote because, hey I can type on my phone! This would make searching so much easier. At least that’s what I thought… The app doesn’t quite work like that. It does give a keyboard feature but when you try to use it it doesn’t actually interface with the TV... so you still have to type by pressing left right up down select left right up down if you want a basic search. It’s harder to lose the app then the remote which is about the only bonus. I hope they improve it, otherwise I wouldn’t recommend anybody invest real money in this.

    The app works great....however, since using it for over a year the ads have increased 100 fold. Today I am uninstalling this app. Your ads do not close out immediately when pressing the 'X' in the corner or using the back button anymore. You want to know what they do now? Instead of closing out immediately upon command another ad from the same vendor pops up. X out...popup...x out...popup...x out...popup...6 times consecutively until I can use the remote. "X OUT....UNINSTALLED!!!!
  • Buy the app or deal with ads every time you watch Netflix Nov 29, 2019

    By cooker52
    This app offers a paid version for an imitation of the actual Roku app. If you need to replace your remote, skip this app and download the official Roku app where they off you the same features for free. Rokie advertises itself as a free remote control for Roku TVs, when in reality they show you 2-3 ads for every 10 button clicks. I could not load a Netflix show without watching 6 ads. The app offers you an option to pay away the ads, however they practically force you to make the purchase in order to actually use the app. If the app stated that it would have blocking ads, it wouldn’t be as bad, but the app advertises itself as “free” when it blocks your phone screen with an ad as your are pressing the control buttons, effectively forcing you to visit the ad. All to prey on people looking for a remote control replacement when a free, more feature full, and more user friendly app is available and officially supported by Roku (the Roku app).

    I like the app itself but now I'm going to delete as soon as I'm done with this review. Menu offers an option to remove ads. Problem is that aspect doesn't work. I tried to send emails but my emails were not answered. Hence app useable because ads pop up as you try to use.
  • Lots of Ads at the worst moments Aug 13, 2021

    By Th Big DD
    The remote actually works remarkably well as long as your mobil device and the Roku that you want to control is connected to the same network. The issue I have with this digital remote is the advertisements that pop up at the worst possible time such as when you are pressing over on the D-Pad or selecting something which always causes me to click on the ad and completely throws me off. I wish there was a ad free version or a way to disable them. At the very least the ads could appear after you have made your selections or after a pause in button presses. I can assure the developers that I never have and I never will purchase anything from an ad that I see in a app especially one that randomly pops up tricking or forcing me to click on it. If there was a fix to this issue I would most likely change my star rating.

    Your television has to be on in order to use this remote controlled. However if I could find my remote control to turn on my TV, I wouldn't needed an app like this.... Right? So a modification that turns on the TV would be great.

    Another non-functional Roku app. You can't have pop-up ads when I have to look at my TV and Knotts the app and then I end up clicking on the ads instead of the remote. Secondly keyboard doesn't work either
  • Worked for a day and now it rarely recognizes my tv Dec 4, 2018

    By meeshy13
    I lost my Roki remote so I was really hoping I could use this so I don’t have to replace the ridiculously expensive remote. When I open the app it shows my device and that it’s connecting and then it disappears and I just see a blank screen with a loading symbol at the top right of my screen. The tv and phone are connected to the same WiFi, so I can’t seem to tighten out the issue and when I tried looking up how to fix this on the Roku support page all the suggestions are involving the app which doesn't work. I’ve tried on multiple devices and have the same issue. It worked for a day or so no issues and now suddenly I’ll be in the middle of watching something and the app no longer works so I can’t pause or play the next episode on Netflix and the worst part is I can’t even select the input to go to my cable.

    The app works with the TV. However the ads appear far to frequently and dispute having a remove ads link in the app, there appears to be no way to get rid of them.

    By Eric Stephens
    It works but good grief it can't make it 5 seconds without a stupid pop up ad. I don't mind an app with pop up ads because that's how the developer makes money, but this one is just ridiculous with the frequency of the ads.
  • Garbage Mar 7, 2020

    By GCosgrave
    Everything about this device and this app is pure trash. First of all the device is inexcusable slow and laggy, crashing and freezing often. At first I tried to use the remote that came with the device but it wouldn’t stay connected for more than 30 seconds. So I shelved it for a while, thinking the remote was the issue. Then recently I learned about the remote app, and I was stoked! Maybe I’ll actually get to use this thing. But I quickly realized all of the issues I was having were hardwired into the DNA of this piece of trash. Still slow, laggy, unresponsive, and prone to crashing. And the kicker? THIS APP HAS ADS. The audacity you people have to put ads on a remote control, and then ASK ME TO PAY TO REMOVE THEM is unbelievable. In conclusion, everything about Roku is a dumpster fire and whoever’s in charge should be exiled to the forbidden land. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.

  • Ads at the worst times Jan 1, 2019

    By HarmonyStone
    This app is useful because my actual, physical remote just vanished one day. However, anytime I’m in the middle of doing things a video ad will pop up. I eventually got so frustrated I was given a choice: never use my roku or buy the ad free version. After continuously messing up Bandersnatch trying to use this app with ads, I gave in and just paid the $2. The ads are seriously infuriating. But the app works well enough. So, 4/5. And please for the love of god just make banner ads instead of pop ups and videos.

  • Works but Questionable Jun 28, 2020

    By Miss Snozzie
    Yes when you get down to it, it works as it should. It doesn’t bug out. The buttons work properly. It has all the functionality of a remote. It’s the advertisements that are the problem. Now ad’s on their own are annoying, but not necessarily an issue. My problem is the advertisements impede the functionality of the remote. Randomly two 5 second adds will play, taking up the entire screen, rendering the app entirely useless until you close out of them. Yes, upgrading to remove them is far lower in cost then replacing the remote. However, it’s very sneaky to design the app in a way the renders it completely useless for random intervals unless you upgrade.

  • Insane amount of ads Sep 27, 2020

    By alexisjessie
    Someone figured out that the Roku remotes were flimsy and they made this app to help people, however, the creators of this app are greedy and money hungry. This app has an add every single time you use it. I mean every single time. Multiple 5 seconds required until you can exit the ads. These also hit you in a row. I wish the creators were better people and didn’t put so so many ads to make money off people. I appreciate the rest just the ads are actually crazy like more than any other app I’ve ever had, almost as many ads as one of those movie bootleg websites.

  • Great when it works, but that isn’t very often Nov 23, 2020

    By Cora1987
    I got this and paid to remove the ads to control the three rokus in our home. Recently though, it’s stopped detecting any of the TVs at all and just stays stuck trying to “discover devices”. All the Rokus are on the same wifi and they are online and work with their included remotes, so the issue is definitely the app, which at this point was just a waste of money. This used to be a more intermittent problem, only happening maybe once or twice a week and usually was easily fixed by hard closing the app. I haven’t been able to get it to detect any of the rokus for at least three days now though, and it’s causing me more frustration than it is a convenience anymore.
  • Ads for a tv I already paid for Jul 30, 2020

    By queendankula
    Okay so let me start off and say this is great for when you lose your remote, but keep in mind it will not let you turn your tv on with this app. Your tv must already be on. Also, the app remote doesn’t always connect to your tv. Be aware that you have ads on this app even though you paid for the tv! You’d think after spending $500 plus on a tv they would make the app without ads. The ads constantly pop up and it’s impossible to even use the app with the ads. And they last like 30 seconds at a time. So after you pay to remove the ads then you can finally use the app, as long as it connects.

Today I am uninstalling this app. Your ads do not close out immediately when pressing the 'X' in the corner or using the back button anymore. You want to know what they do now? Instead of closing out immediately upon command another ad from the same vendor pops up. X out...popup...x out...popup...x out...popup...6 times consecutively until I can use the remote. "X OUT....UNINSTALLED!!!!

    This app offers a paid version for an imitation of the actual Roku app. If you need to replace your remote, skip this app and download the official Roku app where they off you the same features for free. Rokie advertises itself as a free remote control for Roku TVs, when in reality they show you 2-3 ads for every 10 button clicks. I could not load a Netflix show without watching 6 ads. The app offers you an option to pay away the ads, however they practically force you to make the purchase in order to actually use the app. If the app stated that it would have blocking ads, it wouldn’t be as bad, but the app advertises itself as “free” when it blocks your phone screen with an ad as your are pressing the control buttons, effectively forcing you to visit the ad. All to prey on people looking for a remote control replacement when a free, more feature full, and more user friendly app is available and officially supported by Roku (the Roku app).

    I like the app itself but now I'm going to delete as soon as I'm done with this review. Menu offers an option to remove ads. Problem is that aspect doesn't work. I tried to send emails but my emails were not answered. Hence app useable because ads pop up as you try to use.

    Another non-functional Roku app. You can't have pop-up ads when I have to look at my TV and Knotts the app and then I end up clicking on the ads instead of the remote. Secondly keyboard doesn't work either
  • Worked for a day and now it rarely recognizes my tv Dec 4, 2018

    I lost my Roki remote so I was really hoping I could use this so I don’t have to replace the ridiculously expensive remote. When I open the app it shows my device and that it’s connecting and then it disappears and I just see a blank screen with a loading symbol at the top right of my screen. The tv and phone are connected to the same WiFi, so I can’t seem to tighten out the issue and when I tried looking up how to fix this on the Roku support page all the suggestions are involving the app which doesn't work. I’ve tried on multiple devices and have the same issue. It worked for a day or so no issues and now suddenly I’ll be in the middle of watching something and the app no longer works so I can’t pause or play the next episode on Netflix and the worst part is I can’t even select the input to go to my cable.

    Everything about this device and this app is pure trash. First of all the device is inexcusable slow and laggy, crashing and freezing often. At first I tried to use the remote that came with the device but it wouldn’t stay connected for more than 30 seconds. So I shelved it for a while, thinking the remote was the issue. Then recently I learned about the remote app, and I was stoked! Maybe I’ll actually get to use this thing. But I quickly realized all of the issues I was having were hardwired into the DNA of this piece of trash. Still slow, laggy, unresponsive, and prone to crashing. And the kicker? THIS APP HAS ADS. The audacity you people have to put ads on a remote control, and then ASK ME TO PAY TO REMOVE THEM is unbelievable. In conclusion, everything about Roku is a dumpster fire and whoever’s in charge should be exiled to the forbidden land. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.

    Maybe it's glitched, but I literally could not use it unless I bought premium. Like zero use at all, I could not use any part of the remote or click on the channels.

    This app works fine. Functionally it is what I needed out of a remote app. The only reason I needed this app was I have found myself with two Roku TVs and 0 remotes. TVs I paid several hundred dollars for, so you’d think Roku would have gotten their money out of me? Right? Wrong. I go to use this app and as soon as I press a function, an ad plays, preventing me from use of the remote until a 4 minute clash of clans ad stops playing. Infuriated I looked into turning the ads off, and I find I have to give Roku MORE MONEY, for the already expensive TVs I have. Hear me out Roku, I will NEVER give your company another penny! This is complete asinine, a monopoly over my home television experience. You all should be ashamed, and to all reading this, if at all possible return your Roku TV, and do not support this money hungry greedy company with no care for their consumers.
  • DO NOT SUBSCRIBE TO ANYTHING! Aug 1, 2021

    I don’t even remember subscribing to this app. In fact I don’t even have it anymore and haven’t for MONTHS and it been charging my card EVERY week! I had no idea until this morning, I just so happened to check my subscriptions and see all the transactions! I would have never know and this app would have been charging my card for who knows how long! It said I purchased a dollar plan for every week but they have taken $5 out of my account at lest 12 times this year! HOW DOES THAT WORK?? If a plan is a dollar a week how do you need up charging five dollars? i HAD NO CLUE! Like I said! I had the app for a week to use on my aunts Tv while I stayed at her house. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS APP! This is why you check your subscriptions! I WANT MY MONEY BACK!

    The fact that you cannot press buttons more than a few times before an ad place is flat out ridiculous. And it almost always seems like when you need to use the remote right then and there and add please and then you missed your opportunity to be able to use the remote. sometimes an ad will play and you won’t be able to exit out of it until it has fully ran through, or you have to fully exit out of the app and turn it back on to be able to actually use it. The fact that the ads on here are so much make it to where you can hardly use a remote. I am glad that this is not the actual Roku remote if you keep looking you’ll be able to find the Roku companies version of the app and it is 10 times better I promise.
