Remote for Roku

Remote for Roku


Remote for Roku acts just like your physical Roku remote, only better:

-Auto-scan of all wired Roku devices, manual scan for wireless devices
-Navigate directly to any channel using Channel button (New)
-Supports multiple Roku players
-New Back, Info & Replay buttons
-Landscape & portrait
-Fast text entry
-Home screen widget
-Multiple Skins (New: custom skins)


To use your own custom image as a background skin, copy any image into the RokuRemote folder in your SD card. The image name must be one of the following: Custom1.jpg, Custom2.jpg or Custom3.jpg. You can then select Custom1, Custom2 or Custom3 for your skin in Device Preferences. If you select a custom image from the preferences screen that doesn’t exist, the default skin will be used. The bundled images are 320 by 480 pixels, but any image should work and scale to fit the screen.

*** Troubleshooting ***
If you see lag between the app and the Roku, please restart your phone/tablet and the Roku. This will resolve 95% of issues. Should only need to do this every once in a while.

PLEASE - if you have connectivity problems, visit the troubleshooting section of this page:

You can even try the connectivity test before you buy.

NOTE: NOT designed to work with Roku SoundBridge, only the Roku Player.

Recent changes:

User reviews of Remote for Roku
This works brilliantly. Button presses always work, no matter the position of your phone, unlike with the actual hardware remote, which I had to aim carefully. Channel view is a nice perk.

Does not work on my LG GW620. Dies on the first remote button press. Would love to see this fixed, because otherwise looks GREAT and supports multiple Roku's

Works fantastic on HTC Incredible. Great App!!!

Very cool app. I like the keyboard functions also. Keep up the great work. Would be cool if we could have our own image in the back of the buttons instead of the pre-loaded ones

Works Great on my HTC Incredible. Being able to use the phone's qwerty keyboard for searching titles is SOOOO nice.

Missing my $1.50 Very slow performance when interacting with device. Search was super painful. Going back to Roku's app.
