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.

Works perfectly with newest small box model. Open and instantly connected. The way all apps should be.

Worth every penny... Using the app instead of the remote

Found my Roku and set itself up without any issues. This is another of those things like the cloud printing program that works but I don't have the vaguest idea how.

The ONLY reason I gave it four stars is because I can't give it 4 1\2 stars. I love it but needs the button to skip 5 titles in netflix and amazon.

Works better than the stock remote

This is the best 99 cents I ever spent on an app. I have used on Droid Eris, Droid X, and Thunderbolt. Speech-to-text allows for voice search.

This AP works but I find it runs all the time on my nexus one. I force close it and it closes for a second and then restarts itself. Not pleased.
