This app is useful for one reason: it allows you to connect your ear buds (via your phone) to your TV. However, that function is undependable. The connection disconnects frequently without any certain reason. Sometimes, it seems to be because the app automatically searches for other devices to connect to, a function that seems pointless; if you want to find a new device, you will do so, and probably not in the middle of your workout.

For the most part, everything works great, EXCEPT the Netflix app. I watch a lot of Netflix and i hate that the screen just goes black instead of loading Netflix. It worked for a while but don't understand why it's not loading! This is soo frustrating!!! I mean, it loads on the app, I just can't get the Rocu tv to load it. I try with the remote and with the app and get the same results on my tv !!!

I've used this Roku app on my Samsung Galaxy S23+ (Android 14) for over a year. It always started up quickly. But since the last update (4/19/24), it takes over 1 minute to load. During that time, all I see are pulsing gray tiles. If I close the app and restart it, it takes just as long to load again. I've cleared the cache & reinstalled the app, but no change. This is unacceptable!
