One of the better apps for a remote

I have a iPhone 6 and a TCL t.v. And out of the 4 I’ve tried this one works better than them all. Yes there are ads but it’s every once in awhile and not to bothersome really. It connects fast and the volume buttons work great as the other ones I’ve had problems with. I give it 4 because I still hate ads but understand it’s part of the process. Overall as a remote it’s great and the distance on it is pretty darn good also. I can use it way further than my normal remote can. Good app!

This app is great to use on your Roku tv when you lose the remote or just want an extra one. I would have given it 5 stars but there are just way to many adds that pop up constantly when you’re using it. Other than that it’s a great app.

Love it

It absolutely works I’ve been using it since I lost my remote two weeks ago. Paid the two dollars to get the ads gone and it was totally worth it because I’ve never had any problems with it. It is so easy to use, if only Roku would have an update to where I could use this to type my searches in instead of using the remote to go letter by letter it would be amazing. But it is still the best.
