I’m only giving this app 3 stars out of respect for what it was before the gesture directional update. Very hard to navigate AT&T TV’s interface. Keep fat fingering to wrong channels.
Give users a set-up option for the classic interface mimicking the remote control.
I only use this app because *both* of my Roku remotes eat batteries like I’ve never seen!
Also slow to connect. It’ll keep saying check my wi-fi (which I verify is working) when, in fact, my Roku device isn’t accepting the app connecting. Eventually it’ll work even while the error keeps displaying.
This app is a piece of garbage. First of all, Roku, make a physical remote control that lasts more than about 2 weeks without breaking for no reason. Second of all, this app it trash. Constantly disconnecting if not in use for more than 10 seconds then when you try and use it to, let’s say fast forward through commercials, it takes longer to reconnect than the commercial break takes. And now I can’t even get it to detect my Roku stick or even connect to the Roku server. A total waste of time and storage space on my phone
I really do not find the swipe remote user friendly. Yes, I swipe on my phone to navigate through streaming services, but I liked that this app was like a remote. Now it feels like a combination of streaming on my phone and on my tv, and my brain just cannot connect the swiping when I want to click a left or right arrow. I have found myself reaching for my actual remote more than ever before since this change.
Previously I loved this app and it was part of the reason I bought a Roku tv, now I’m just frustrated.
This app is bad and doesn’t work. One day I lost my remote so i got the app, at first it was better than the remote but after a while it stopped working. When I’m on my tv it disconnects and says my tv is off even though it’s on. If this app is supposed to control Roku tv’s then it doesn’t work. Sometimes I can’t turn my tv off because the app isn’t working. Sometimes I even spend hours trying to make it connect to my tv and it never works. Unless if this gets fixed then I will never use this again.
This app was great for a long time and then it started glitching every time I use it. It says connected but it doesn’t work and the app and buttons all disappear. If I lock my phone while I am using the app its instantly messed up. I usually have to either turn off my tv or do a hard reset to get them to work together. And I haven’t seen a fix offered for it either. Really, really aggravating.
The reason I went with Roku (TCL television) was to utilize the private listening through my headphones. It does not ever work for more than 10 minutes and then will not connect again. Both devices are hooked to the same WiFi but the TV does not like this app. If I knew this previously I would have got an Apple TV because they make products that actually work as advertised.
The app is a good concept but they failed on the execution. The app constantly disconnects from my tv then says the tv isn’t on when I try to reconnect. Then the private listening is so much of a headache to deal with, it’s so inconsistent I hate it’s even on there. The app almost seems like it’s made by a third party developer
I love the app except every time I close out of the app to go to a different app on my phone then go to switch the channel on my tv with the remote it makes me turn my entire tv off and turn it back on plus I have to close out of the app just to fix the remote. It is beyond annoying and I’ve been dealing with this for a year!!!
I downloaded this app for the purpose of private listening. Rarely will it find my device that is in plain view from across the room. If it does, it goes off private listening over and over.
Then we I want to use it the next day, it will not find the device at all. Removed app. Tried to use it many times with Apple 8+
10/20****Some shows not workin using private listening. (Disney - All The Simpson’s - Movie and all episodes) still not working 3 weeks later ♂️
Using with AirPods take multiple attempts to connect with private listening. * note, airpods are cleanly connected to iPhone and works smoothly with all other applications.
