rokRemote is a Roku Mac app that gives your Mac's desktop the same Roku remote control that your mobile devices have. There are Roku remotes for iPhone and iPad as well as other mobile devices that get the most from the Roku experience.
Now rokRemote captures that same functionality in a nice simple interface. rokRemote is a menu bar app that is designed to function much like an iPhone app. No clunky full window app to get in your way.
The interface provides a comfortable work feel to a space efficient window. Best of all it remains out of your way.
The remote, channels and keyboard screens help make navigating the Roku easy. Roku auto detection as well as manual entry of Roku devices is supported. See the zmplicitycode website for more details.

Extreme Roku User - I am an extreme roku user, I have been searching for something to control my Roku box from my MAC and not have to use my iPhone anymore. This app does exactly what it says it does and the developer is quick to respond and loves to hear suggestions and your experience with the software, this purchase is one you will not regret! The other user who says it does not work simply does not know what he is talking about. I got this up and running in under 30 seconds - no issues and was controlling my Roku from my Menu Bar. Which is one feature I love as it is always there and I can click it when I need it. Perfect!
Used to work great - This was my go-to app on my computer and it worked great. When I downloaded the most recent IOS for Mac it stopped working and does not even show that I have purchased it. How disappointing. When it works again this would be a 5 star app.

Not as good as iPhone Apps - Bought this for those days i can’t put my laptop down and want to control my Roku 3. Well I guess after using a short while I’ll have to go back to using the remote. The biggest issue is the fact that the keyboard option is not really allowing you to use your laptop keyboard to type. HELLO! I’m on a laptop and can’t use the keyboard to type in searches? Suggest you wait till the truly add a keyboard search and not manually click each letter on their keyboard.
Fantastic!!!! - Setup was quick and easy. I selected the roku I wanted to control and everything worked. The interface buttons could be larger but overall I like the look and feel of the app. I especially like that to use the app I simply pull it down from the menu bar. I stays out of my way when not in use.
Not very intuitive but works good - Watching developer video actually helps a lot
Won’t open! - I bought it and it won’t open! I want a refund!
app nfails after Sierra install - The app was great I loved it. But after upgrading to Sierra it now doesn’t work. The pre-install does NOT warn you that it is mnot compatible which is a bad on apple.
