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!

    Great app. MUCH faster loading and resuming than the official ROKU app. It also goes straight to the remote functions instead of requiring an additional button press to get there like the official app. It js my preferred ROKU remote app.
