Is there an open source remote app for Android?

I don't like the terms and conditions for the Roku app. Was wondering if an open source option is something that's avaliable that works with TCL TVs and standard Roku boxes.

I know it's counterproductive to want this and to also be using a Roku in the first place or any streaming services for that matter but I believe in minimalizing data collection and there's a stark difference between a Roku collecting data in my house and the remote app collecting data on my phone wherever I go.

You can try RoMote by William Seemann.  Completely Open Source.

In my Play Store I had to search for "William Seemann" in order to locate it when I installed it.  Works great. (The Private Listening may or may not work depending on device though/experimental)  Has a Channel Store section/tab for easily adding channels/apps to the connected Roku device as well as the keyboard search.

Here is his github page as well if interested in the source code. (
