Look Closely At Pictured Remote App
As far as remote controls, what you see is what you get in the app photo pictured. No volume control. No ON-OFF button controls. You only get the controls pictured and that is all. The app works for me to connect to my TCL Roku TV, however... the remote does not offer (as I said) volume nor power buttons. If those controls are important to you, beware they do not exist on this app.
I’m so glad I found this. It looked a little sketchy at first but it turns out to be great. It connected right away, I literally had to do nothing! I’m not sure why it has some bad reviews but it literally saved my life, because I lost my orginal remote so then I used my phone as the remote but I just recently lost my phone so I found this for my MacBook and I’m so freaking happy and glad it was not trouble shooting needed.
Been Waiting For This App for a While!
First of all, THANK YOU! This app actually works well. I’ve got a MacBook Pro running High Sierra OS and 2 different Roku’s in my home. The app controls both excellently. I also tested out the Cast Video funtion as well with an .Mp4 movie and it worked great. Would have give this app a 5-star rating if you could use some sort of keyboard function when doing searches. If that feature was there, this would be truly amazing. But it functions well. Great job.
