Known Issues:
- The Hulu Plus channel currently does not support the keyboard in Roku remote apps, including Remote For Roku.
You can still use the navigation pad and the OK button on our app to "type" into the Hulu+ search field, in the same way you would with your hardware remote. Very 20th century, and definitely a workaround we want to eliminate. 
Apologies for any inconvenience in the meantime!

Roku and the Roku logo are trademarks of Roku Inc. in the United States and other countries.
Improved touch skin so that swipe up and swipe down work more naturally. Thanks A. Cooper for helping to test  this!

Other minor changes.

    I love it... I can find my phone before I can find my remote thx 👍👍👍

    Works great almost always. Has ads but it's a free app, so I'm okay with that. Better than official app because I can pin individual channels to my phone's start screen. Update: App now stitches to different Roku as when all I'm doing is hitting play.

    Works well with my roku 2 but not with the original version. But on the 2 it is awesome and I rarely use the actual remote

    Works but does not detect multiple roku devices. Pinning live channel tile cuts off part of the channel image, unsightly but no big deal.

    Works fine on my WP8 Nokia, but there are free options out there with better privacy settings.
