Not as good as the actual remote, but great as a backup
If you read the description you will clearly see this is a remote for your Roku streaming device. It works for my Roku2 and my TCL Roku TV. On tablets and desktops it has other features, such as a more convenient search feature and an easier way to add channels (since it is easier to type) and sometimes music and photos. The only complaint is that it has to be connected to your device in order to search and add channels. I wish I could just add them to my Roku account on my phone when I am not at home. I don't use this as much since I found an old DISH remote that I have programmed to my Roku TV, DVR, and Blu-ray player that I generally use as the backup option for when we use on of the main remotes.More
Could be Better
Couldn't access the photos or music on my laptop. No option to stream videos from my laptops. Remote is the best feature as it works very well.More
It was easy to set up but it lacks the most important feature all streaming players are bought for. To be able to stream videos from your computer. Returning right away and getting a better streaming player that is cheaper.More
I use the app daily!!! Great to see a windows phone app :)More
Thanks for creating a Windows phone app!
Nice and easy to use. Love the big buttons.More
Doesn't work the same as the set top Roku although you have to connect it to play Roku channels. Only photos and music work.More
will not connect
suspect that you must be on a WIFI network not wired for this to work... please fix connectivity so wired computers can connect as well.More
Works great. Finally an app in the appstore that's good as the ones in ios or android appstoreMore
