Newsflash: That Is the app featured by way of CNET within the video "The Way To keep an eye on your Roku with your iPhone". Check It Out at - they did an ideal job exhibiting in under a minute how easy it's!

"Far Off for Roku" is an iPhone/iPod Contact app that may remotely regulate Roku video gamers. The app has simple and elegant interface, it automatically discovers the Roku avid gamers related to your WiFi network and might keep watch over them with all the performance of the IR Remote that incorporates the field - including the extra "immediate replay", "information" and "again" buttons. It Also adds performance like keyboard beef up (e.g. for Netflix searches) and a channel launchpad.

There Is No configuration needed, as long as your iOS instrument is WiFi-connected to the same community your Roku participant is on. Extraordinary exception are some Qwest/Actiontec routers (e.g. PK5000, M1000, MI424WR, GT701WG, GT724WG), which do not support auto-discovery protocol - for these the participant will have to be brought manually by means of tapping on "Different" in Settings.

"Far Off for Roku" cannot control "Offended Birds" for Roku 2; the sport requires a Bluetooth controller from Roku.

Consumer Critiques

Better than incorporated Faraway (5 stars)
Needed To Review this app as a result of it really works so well. I just purchased a Roku, and actually simply Needed To Click On on my Roku and it labored. It in fact works Better than the Remote packaged with the Roku because it has a keyboard, and channel alternatives are executed with one Contact, as opposed to scrolling with the hardware Far Flung. In Case You Have a Roku, it's important to have this app. Kudos to the developers.

works when the bluetooth eliminate does No Longer (5 stars)
I like it. I've a brand new Roku XS with the bluetooth Remote. I've had a problem the place it's going to stop responding to the Faraway But have Not been able to discover a pattern. However this finds the Roku and the Roku responds. then the bluetooth Remote begins responding. I do think that it's the Roku bluetooth itself that's 'sleeping', But this regains keep an eye on.

Works nice! (5 stars)
Misplaced my Faraway and this quick came to its rescue.
