What's new in this version (2.17):
Renamed the application from "Roku Remote" to "Remote for Roku" to comply with Roku's trademark policies.
Also check out our latest Roku companion app - Juice for Roku! With it, you can stream photos and music directly to your Roku from your phone.
Note: To comply with Roku's trademark policy, I am renaming the app from "Roku Remote" to "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)
-Access to hidden functions (set bit rate, secret menu). See Extras menu.
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.
Requires WIFI access, see help menu for details. Please email me with any connectivity issues.

Loses connection with unit too often. Great to not need line of site. DX
Works perfectly- moto droid and basic roku box- i had the free app by the other person for a few months. Glad i bought this one
Have to re-enter IP everytime I use this app. Need the real remote to get IP so why bother with this app.
Does *not* require frequent reboots of Roku. (Using the Nexus One).
Better than the free roku app that always froze til a reboot. Only problem I've noticed is the keys stick. Very annoying when it scrolls nonstop.
It works.. but it randomly scrolls to the left by itself.
I was hoping for a reliable remote.this has the same problem as the free romote app.(have to unplug the roku every time) maybe its just me.
Works really well. I think limitations are mostly on Roku's end.
Works perfectly with exception of seach on my LG Ally. PLEASE FIX.
Needs some work. Frequently misses key presses and search function consistently skips first letter.
