DVPRemote Is Your iPhone Remote App for Roku

Just saw a tweet from @rokuplayer that DVPRemote was on sale for $1.99. Being that I’ve never heard of DVPRemote, I clicked on the link. It turns out DVPRemote is a $2.99 iOS app for the iPhone and iPod touch (works on iPad, too) that makes controlling a Roku box a dream. Not sure why Roku hasn’t produced something like this on their own? It works over Wi-Fi, so no line of site is required as with your IR remote. But the thing that makes this app a must-have is that users can quickly scan through selections by touch, manage/rearrange channels, tap in text, and more. A video of the app in action is attached below. Android users see: Roku Remote (highly rated), RoMote.
