This version is fully compatible with iOS 10.x on iPhone and Apple Watch.
No more fumbling for your Roku remote. Now you can control your Roku from an Apple Watch OR iPhone. RokuMotion provides you with the basic functions required to access your Roku box over your local WiFi network.
Automatically detects multiple Roku boxes on your iPhone and lets you choose which one. Scroll to see the list on the Apple Watch or tap the "Using" button on the iPhone to flip to another Roku. If RokuMotion on the Apple Watch is not interacting with your device, make sure your Apple Watch is able to connect to the 2.4GHz side of your dual band WiFi. Then, open RokuMotion on your iPhone to update your device list to the Apple Watch.
When a Roku app need text input, tap into the the white square on your iPhone and start typing. Text will appear only on your TV screen. Use the X button to erase the last character typed in. The return key will hide the keyboard. Pressing the search button on a newer Roku may bring up voice search. If it does, switch to text search, then tap into the white square to bring up the keyboard.
To rename a Roku device, press on its current name or IP address until the "Name this Roku" dialog appears.
On the Apple Watch, RokuMotion works better if your "Wrist Raise" preference is set to "Last Used App" or "Resume Previous Activity". Also, the Apple Watch only has a 2.4 GHz WiFi capability. So if its paired iPhone only connected to 5 GHz, you should connect your iPhone to 2.4 GHz once to enable the Apple Watch to connect that way.
If you've just powered on your Roku or a second Roku, it may not find the device. Press "Find more" to locate the player.
Buttons do not have an auto repeat function. A slight delay in button response is normal.
Note: The new Mute button will only work on the 5 brands of TVs with the Roku TV logo on them.
RokuMotion is not affiliated with Roku or any of its third party apps. Roku is a registered trademark of Roku Inc. Names of third party apps are trademarked by their respective owners.
On the iPhone:
- New feature: App Chooser gives you the complete list of apps installed on your Roku.
- New remote buttons for Instant Replay, Mute (if you have a RokuTV), and the options button, which provides the same functionality as the * button on the physical remote.
- Removed the rdio button and the ads
- bug fixes

Ratings and Reviews
does what I wanted!
I was looking for a remote to pilot my roku from my apple watch and after trying another one with "more reviews" that was just crashing , I gave a go to that one.
At first, it was not working so I contacted the developper and got an answer within few hours. Help provided was good and solved my problem. Great job here !!
Is not working. Cannot find roku and options is also not working.
Love keyboard input
I use the keyboard input feature all the time, and it makes the app worth every penny. The tiny ad at the bottom is easy to ignore. Not worth ranting about.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
