THIS APP REQUIRES A ROKU PLAYER OR ROKU TV
To use this app, you must connect your iOS device to the same network as your Roku player or Roku TV. Certain features require compatible Roku players/Roku TVs or may require logging in to your Roku account.
HAVING TROUBLE FINDING YOUR ROKU PLAYER OR ROKU TV?

Get message about Roku Service
I own a Roku 3, which has all updates, I have an iPhone 6 which also has all updates including the ones for today for iOS, and the Roku app. I keep getting a message that the Roku services is temporarily unavailable please try again. Some features might not be available please try again later.
I’ve restarted the Roku, and iPhone, the remote works in the app so do other features, I’m able to sign into my account, but it’s just the message that pops up when first starting the app. I’m not sure how to resolve, this I’ve googled and haven’t found much. Any resolve would help, thanks!
Good app, works as advertised.
The title really says it all. The only slight problem I have is that, with a Roku TV, I still need the remote to turn the TV on. So if I've lost the remote, I can't watch TV. (And no, there are no buttons on the television itself, one of those stupid trends all modern televisions seem to be following. Take note, TV OEMs, sometimes you need buttons on the TV itself.) Other than that, a fantastic app with great attention to detail, for example that I can use my phone's volume buttons to change the volume on the TV. A nice little detail by the app developers. All in all, well done.
Convenient & Useful
As great as Roku is, there seems to be an issue with their remotes. They lose connectivity. Once that happens, it can be difficult to get them paired up again.
This is where this App comes in very useful. It's easy to use and works all of the time. Even if your remote is still working and has never failed, this App is good to have as a back-up.
