Roku has this week rolled out a new update for its iPhone remote control application, just 2 months after it first landed in the iPhone app store. The new update brings with it a number of performance tweaks together with a selection of features that enhance the Roku iPhone remote control application even further.
Now in addition to being able to navigate your Roku device by swiping, the new update brings with it an integrated D-Pad keypad option, that allows you to tap your way around as if using the traditional button remote control.
A selection of shortcut buttons have also been added which allow you to now quickly jump to Netflix, Crackle or Pandora. On the performance side the new update includes a faster loading home screen, together with greatly improved Roku device discovery.
Unfortunately there are still no signs of an Android or iPad application. But the new Roku iPhone remote application update is now available to download from the iTunes app store for free.
