A few months ago we bought a Roku for our bedroom, mostly for Netflix. Love it, except for the remote. It’s really easy to lose.
A quick search of the Android app store found a few 3rd party remotes that connect via Wi-Fi, but none seemed to work very well. There was always a bit of a delay between key presses, and none that I tried would connect to the Roku when it had powered itself off.
Last week found the official Roku Android app, and it’s much better than anything I’ve found. Picks up my Roku almost immediately instead of scanning the network every time. Button clicks are almost instant. The remote screen has buttons for the 3 most recently used channels. And, the best part, it works even when the Roku has gone to sleep.
