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!

I have an Apple TV as well, and the app for that is way better, despite being one screen. No ads, unlike this, and a message pops up on my phone when I need to type for search. Both apps are visually pleasing, and despite not liking this app, I do appreciate the channel screen and being able to go straight to another channel while being in another app. I wish the search function was as efficient as the Apple TV remote app, but I imagine it’s easier for apple since everybody with that app has an iPhone (I think). This app works fine enough if you lose your remote, but there is NO reason to use it otherwise. I use my apple remote app all the time, despite still having my remote handy. The ads on this app are ridiculous. I can barely do anything before one pops up, lasting 30 seconds to a a minute. If you want to use your phone as a remote because you think it’ll be faster, it won’t be. And honestly, if you lost your remote, just buy a new one. I get that you can pay $2 to get rid of the ads, but this shouldn’t be a problem in the first place. I already see ads on my Roku screen and I know they profit off of their products, so why do they feel the need to have ads in a remote app? It’s ludicrous!

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.

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 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.
