Control your Roku from your phone with the official app

Roku has released an official app on the Android market that lets you use your phone as a remote control for your Roku streaming player. If you set both your phone and your Roku to the same Wi-Fi network, you’ll be ready to navigate.

The app allows you to launch your Roku channels, find new channels, and control media playback. You can rate the channel, enter text with the keyboard, or watch some instant replay, all with your phone. You can control multiple Roku players with the app, and add or remove channels as well.

Give this app a try, and let us know if you prefer this or other remote apps, like the Dijit Universal Remote.

The app is free, and you can download it from the Android market link below.

    Doesn’t work for me (and a lot of others judging by the reviews). Unofficial apps find my Roku but the official one doesn’t. Irony. Or poor QA.
