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!

Improved touch skin so that swipe up and swipe down work more naturally. Thanks A. Cooper for helping to test  this!

    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 app when all I'm doing is hitting play or returning to app. Stinks when it kicks you out of Netflix to visit the other app you've recently used too.
