Windows Store App — What happened?

Jump to solution

Last year I bout a Roku TV for my daughter and was thrilled that there was a Windows 10 App for controlling the Roku (like she also used on her iPhone). So I buy an Ultra later and go to get the Windows 10 App and it says "Unavailable" in the Windows Store. I think this is just a temp thing, thinking there is an update coming or something. I keep checking back and it appears it is not coming back! Argh!

Googling this, there are a lot of unhappy campers like me out there. 

I have the Android App, but I want the Windows App with my Windows Tablet that controls everything else in my media room! What is going on? Was it removed so we will buy the tabletop remote? I hope that is not the reason.

Yes, it was removed. No official explanation was given. It did have a bug that I recall, but have forgotten exactly what it was. Couldn't log into your Roku account if I remember correctly. Apparently the bean counters at Roku decided their app budget was better spent on iOS and Android devices. I too believe that to be a mistake, but I'm just another user like yourself.
