The Roku app for Windows Phone 8.1 allows Roku users to control their Roku player over their home network. Features include:
- Search for movies, shows, actors, or directors and easily launch the content on your Roku player or TV.  Search is available today with the Roku Streaming Stick (HDMI version), Roku 3, Roku TVs, and will be available on additional Roku players at a later date.
- Browse, add, and rate Channels from more than 1,800 Roku Channels offered in the Roku Channel Store.
- Quickly launch your favorite Roku Channels
- Name and switch between multiple Roku players and TVs
- Enjoy your laptop or tablet photos and music on your Roku player or TV (Supported on Roku 3, Roku 2, Roku LT, Roku HD (model 2500), Roku TV, and Roku Streaming Stick only)
To use this app, you must connect your Windows Phone to the same network as your Roku player or TV.  Certain features require compatible Roku players/Roku TVs or may require logging in to your Roku account.
Note: If the app does not recognize your Roku player or TV (you see a “No Roku Devices Found” message after you sign in), try going to network setup again on your Roku player. This will wake your Roku player on your home network. Then, select “Try Again” in the Roku app.

    Easy to use. Quickly connects to my Roku. I have a tendency to misplace my remote often, so it comes in handy. I wish I had thought to look up the app sooner.

    Too bad I can't play my music or view my pictures from my Windows phone😞

    The only thing that would give this a 5/5 would be if the headphones function on the roku 3 was used in this app. Other than that, a great app for a great product
