lack of content
I was hoping this app would make it easier to stream my computer to my Roku seeing as I have been having issues with the dual screening. however I can not play videos from the app. if you need a controller this app is great but other than that I don't suggest it.More
works better than I ever expected I can Use At when I am multitasking being on the computer and watching roku! Love it! Wish 🌠 it were closer to the Android with the voice features in it.More
Play on Roku feature is lacking
The "Play on Roku" feature only supports music and photos, and not video. Actually, I couldn't get photos of music files to show up either so it was a bust all around...More
Works perfectly! Its easy and fun to troll your siblings! xDMore
Easy to useMore
Barely Workable in Windows 10
This app needs to be reworked for Windows 10. The double windows (channels & remote), worked very well in 8.1. They automatically snapped side-by-side in a 2/3 to 1/3 configuration. In 10, not so much. The double windows works ONLY in desktop mode AND you have to manually resize the windows and put them side-by-side. You have to do this EACH AND EVERY TIME the app is opened. Doesn't this defeat the purpose of a TABLET? This really deserves 1 star, but I gave it 2 because the channel selection and the remote do work. I understand that programming an app is not perfect, but this really borders on utter negligence. It's not like Windows 10 was released as a surprise. O well.More
Best app that I use regularly.
No other app that I use on a regular basis is as good as Roku. I use it all the time and this app helps me control it just like the remote.More
I love this application as it allows me to use a keyboard to search for my favorite movies. I also enjoy streaming my music and photos where before I had to by a DLNA capable device. This is just built inMore
Excellent app..nice options to share photos and music directly to tv from phone.More
Love the boxes and the app, I don't have a smart tv yet and this makes things so easy when I'm browsing the internet and want to watch the you tube video or really anything my computer is playing on my television.More
