Does anyone have any recommendations when it comes to Android Apps for the Roku?

Remoku should run well in the Android browser and Chrome for Android. You can even add its icon to a home screen to use it like a real app, see help.remoku.tv for directions and tips for using Remoku on various browsers and devices.

Aww, I think I understand now.. I thought maybe ScoreTV was writing a channel that would let us run Android apps from our Rokus! Shucks.

Sorry for the confusion, yes an app for Android Phones that would allow control of the Roku Set-Top as a Remote. I've seen some apps that act as Remotes, but the recent ROKU IOS app seams impressive and I would like to see if someone has a similar app for Android.

http://www.engadget.com/2012/02/23/roku ... pe-remote/

"a D-pad filled with buttons and shortcuts for apps like Netflix, Pandora and Crackle. Also, there's the inclusion of a new swipe-based remote -- which is optional -- that should help make navigating through applications a bit easier while you're lounging on the couch."

I deserve that...

Awsome App, thank You.

Does anyone have any other apps that they could recommend.

I've found RoMote to be an excellent Android App.

Anyone know how to get it for the Kindle Fire (I dont have access to the AMarket) so I can sideload it

If you're looking for basic remote functionality, you could give Remoku a try, I'd love to hear if/how it runs on a Fire :) It doesn't have the home screen channel list (yet) or access to the channel store, but it works on a lot of devices. :)

Why on earth is a remote control app US only? I would really like to have it here in Germany.

Probably because the international audience is so new. I'll add it to my weekly report as a requested feature (although I'm certain you'll see it VERY soon for both Android and iOS in other regions).

They haven't yet included that feature in their own iOS or Android app, nor have they published documentation about it for other remote developers to use, but I'll add a +1 :)
