If you happen to be somewhere in the intersection of Roku and Apple Watch owners, good news. Today, Roku launched a free app for your wrist that features voice controls, and the ability to find your remote.

To get the app, you just have to update the Roku mobile app to version 6.1.3 on your iPhone. If you’ve got automatic installs enabled on your watch, the app should then appear without you having to do anything. If not, you’ll have to go into the Watch app.

Surprisingly, the Roku app seems pretty well thought out. Not only does it include a virtual remote, but it also has the option of quickly launching your favourite channels. For select Roku devices and Roku TV models, you can also tap an icon to use voice commands. According to Roku’s blog, that means you can ask your Roku to launch channels, switch HDMI ports, or even search within specific genres. It might sound silly to speak into your wrist when you could just use the remote, but it’s always nice to see features that could help users with mobility issues.

You Can Now Save More Than $100 On An 11-inch iPad Pro

  You Can Now Save More Than $100 On An 11-inch iPad Pro Despite being a year old, the 2018 iPad Pro is still a solid pick in Apple’s tablet line. Because of that, it’s been rare to see the iPad Pro drop much lower than its regular $US800 ($1,162) price, but you can snag a quick deal on an 11-inch, wifi-only iPad Pro with 64GB of memory for just $US674 ($979) through Amazon right now. (Other models are discounted as well, but nowhere near as much as the 64GB wifi iPad Pro.) We’re not sure exactly how long the offer will remain valid, though we assume it won’t last long since Apple products rarely get discounts like this and are prone to selling out. If you want one, it’s probably wise to act fast.

Now you can control your Roku from an Apple Watch OR iPhone. RokuMotion provides you with the basic functions required to access your Roku box over your local WiFi network. Automatically detects multiple Roku boxes from your iPhone and lets you choose which one.

But perhaps the best feature is the app’s remote finder. Roku Ultra and Roku TV users can use the Apple Watch app to signal the remote, which will then play an “audible chime.”

This isn’t the only Roku-Apple mashup as of late. Just last month, Roku added an Apple TV app to its Roku Channel Store. The app lets Apple users access TV shows and movies purchased and saved in their iTunes library, as well as gives them access to the Apple TV+ streaming service. Considering that, it makes sense that Roku would then build out extra functionality for its iOS mobile app.
