    Best Roku Remote for Android Devices

    I have this exact app on my other Android devices and it is great I especially love the Channel menu that let's you skip directly to a different Channel on my Roku no matter where I am on it. If your having issues, on your Roku press in half-second intervals [HOME],[HOME],[HOME],[HOME],[HOME],[FFORWARD],[FFORWARD],[FFORWARD],[REWIND],[REWIND] to get your Roku's IP address and enter it manually into the Roku Remote App.

    Excellent Control for Roku

    This App allows control of all four of our Roku devices, including a Roku 2 XS. Why would you want this? First, you can key in sign in and account fields on the Nook keyboard rather than point and click on the Roku. This feature alone is worth the purchase price. The Nook App is lighted so you can easily see what you are doing in a dimly lighted room. The channel view has all your channels displayed so you can select a channel without scrolling. Different skins for easy recognition of which Roku you are controlling and the ability to name each device with a user designated name rather than an IP address. If you Roku, you will like this App.

    I AM SOOO HAPPY !

    My husband never lets me use the remote, now I have my own, I'm driving him crazy. He is watching the other TV, the one who " obeys" him.

    Sacre' Bleu! This it just IT!

    OK. this is cool! I installed it about an hour ago and I love it! I agree that the big PLUS here is the ability to click the box w/ 4 boxes in it and access ALL your channels. SO much better than scrolling back and forth. Great app. MUST have for all ROKU owners!!

    What Roku Is

    @awesomeJM, there is a lot of audio/video available on Internet. The Pandora app which came with your Nook lets you play music available on Internet. If you haven't tried it yet, give it a shot. Roku is a small device that can play video from Internet and send it to your TV like a VCR. It has to be hooked to your TV and connected to Internet. It can connect wirelessly if you have a wireless router, just like your Nook. If you have a Roku hooked to your TV, this app lets you use you Nook as a 'remote' for it, like the remote for your TV or VCR remote.

    Cool application for roku

    When I first installed this app it did not act like it was going to function. Tried it again today and it works great. It is easier to operate than the remote tht came with the Roku. Really cool! Worth more than $1.49.

    It's Obvious

    If you know what a Roku device is and/or plan to get one then buy this. If you don't know what a Roku device is then /don't/ buy it. In case that wasn't clear enough (and pardon me for getting snappy) let me say it again in caps. IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT A ROKU DEVICE IS OR PLAN TO GET ONE DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT!

    Despareately needed when physical remote was lost

    We lost our physical Roku remote. This app was a blessing. My only complaint was that there was a several second lag between pushing a button on the app and having the Roku respond. I assume it was because it was going thru the wireless system at my house. After several weeks without finding the physical remote, I ordered a replacement.
