Roco - Remote control and keyboard for your Samsung or LG Smart TV

Roco is the perfect remote for your Samsung or LG Smart TV. It's powerful, easy to setup and looks just great on your iPhone.

Please check your TV model before you buy this app! We support only Internet enabled Samsung TVs bought between 2010 and 2013 (Series C to F). We do not support the latest Samsung Series H (Series 8) from 2014. We also do not support LG TVs that run the webOS operating system.

Whether you want to control your TV from the couch or anywhere in your house, Roco is a great companion. With our innovative controls that you usually only find in games, you can navigate menus quicker then ever. You can also use your iPhone keyboard to type in text much faster. Instead of searching for that one button on your crammed remote control, Roco also intelligently serves you the right buttons at the right time.

Want to quickly switch between your favorite TV channels? Save them to customizable buttons to have them right at your fingertips. You can also customize these buttons with over 60 different functions, some of which are not even on your regular remote.

* Setup assistant
* Innovative controls
* Use your iPhone keyboard to type in text (only for Samsung/LG Apps, not Youtube etc.)
* Customizable buttons and TV channels
* Smart mode changes
* Secret buttons unavailable on the regular remote
* Slick iOS8 look

The app can only control your TV directly, and not any other peripherals attached to your TV (Cable Box, DVR, Gaming Console etc.). Text input only works for built in Samsung/LG apps, like the Internet Browser. As neither Samsung nor LG TVs support "Wake On LAN" Roco can only turn OFF your TV but not ON. If you have any problems connecting to your TV, please contact us from within the app - we will do our best to help you.

Our automagical setup assistant is going to walk you through the simple steps required to set things up. There is no need for additional hard- or software. Even if you do get stuck – we have an extensive troubleshooting section in the App and we're glad to help, if needed.

Roco is neither an official Samsung product, nor are we affiliated with Samsung or LG. We are not responsible for the changes you make on your TV with our App.

What's new in version 1.6
We had some issues with Roco crashing on iOS9 devices. Should all be running smoothly again with this update!
Our verdict: Ok
  • + Roco - Remote control and keyboard for your Samsung or LG Smart TV is an ok, 3.5-star app.
