private listening is broke on YouTube
george the old man on 2020-12-04
The reason I use this app is because my Roku remote actually broke and i know that I can just buy a new one but I have no money and this app is a pretty good replacement for the remote but it is a little less convient than having a remote because I have unlock my phone but it still works really nice and you get to have private listening which in my opinion works but it doesn’t because it works on apps like Netflix on Hulu without a problem but when you go onto YouTube it just breaks whenever a add goes on or you switch to a different to video and it’s really annoying and I have tried every different type of headphone I have tried Earbuds,AirPods, and headphones and it still breaks.
PLEASE allow us to disable connection to server
Ncarbell on 2020-12-04
With the latest update, the connection to Roku’s servers (which is of absolutely no use to me) fails every. Single. Time. But the app does not allow you to bypass this load screen — instead, I have to wait 60-90 seconds before I can use the remote, every time I open the app. Of course, you could just use the remote that came with your Roku — except I’ve bought 3 of those, all of which failed after less than 6 months of use. Please let us either use the remote app as a remote, rather than a dedicated ad platform for Roku’s subscription service... or develop a physical remote that doesn’t’ self-destruct. I beseech you.
Can be Frustrating
dhhdvdvsgsbs s on 2020-12-04
Sometimes I like the app and sometimes I don’t but It really help me because I don’t know what’s wrong with my Roku Remote because it dose not work for my tv the first few Months that I got the tv the remote was working fine I don’t know what’s wrong with it now Buh this app helped to a lot but it’s kinda Frustrating using this app because it ether takes a long time to connect or I just don’t connect at all thing I have to keep going out the app and going back in but Eventually it works.
Quick & Helpful
mya_akire0 on 2020-12-04
it’s a very good and helpful app that i can use on my phone. it has beneficial things such as being able to turn the volume up with my volume buttons on my phone, and picking the channels from the app, and also being able to type. it makes things much quicker. the only thing i don’t like is how slow it loads at times or having to get up to turn the tv on because it doesn’t always allow me to turn it on using the app. other than that it is a great & quick app.
Trash, only great for last resort
gahahsbsjewn on 2020-12-04
This app is trash. When you listen through the app. It breaks up and gets staticky every few months and you have to double click it every time to work properly. It constantly crashes and freeze. Sometimes it glitches. Just way to many bugs for me. I’ve used other smart tv apps and it’s much better! However it’s a great alternative when you loose the tiny remote! Which happens often in my household! So it’s worth the download foe this reason alone!
Wish it was better
temetito2 on 2020-12-04
App is ok. Comes greatly handy when the remote gets lost so much. But it’s too annoying when you’re trying to listen on private and the app just keeps disconnecting it saying there’s an error or problem related to the signal even tho the signal is perfectly fine. Also makes what you’re watching lag a lot when you lock your phone or with the app open on screen. Such a downside and very disappointing, which is mostly why I give just 2 stars.
Private listening crashes YouTube app after update.
Beholdson on 2020-12-04
This app was working well but since the latest update, private listening has become near unusable with the YouTube app. It’s become less reliable overall but is at its worst whenever using it with the YouTube app. The audio stutters and skips and causes the video to buffer repeatedly until YouTube crashes. The problem stops once I turn private listening off so it can’t be the YouTube app. This is one of my most used features, please fix.
Too many glitches / Won’t open
bree.i.c. on 2020-12-04
This app glitches too often. There are times when this app doesn’t work for hours. I don’t have a regular remote, so I either have to just turn my tv off for a few hours or just deal with not being able to pause, rewind, lower the volume, or change the channel. Tomorrow is a holiday, and I’d like for my family to be able to watch a movie together. Sadly, there is no way of knowing how this app will work at any given moment.
Like it Except For
Love My 'Pad on 2020-12-04
I searched for this app so that I would always have one at my disposal but really used it for the Bluetooth function. BUT I get a lot of interference when using my AirPods and find myself removing them and straining to hear the TV. I stay up later than my husband and use the Bluetooth function to not disturb him. Could you please fix this problem ASAP with an update? Otherwise the Remote works perfectly!!
It’s ok
ItsAmazingBoy on 2020-12-04
The app is great but there are major issues with my app. Sometimes it works great but then all of a sudden it losses connection and doesn’t work for a bit, a lot of the time when it losses the connection and I try to reconnect it says there are no devices on this WiFi or something like that (and no it’s not the WiFi because it works just fine) and it does that for a long period of time.
