I like using the app when I want to use my wireless headphones to watch a movie. The unfortunate side is the amount of times I've had to uninstall and reinstall the app, restart my phone, clear out my cache, and make sure the roku is connected to the wifi. It makes no sense that everything is connected to the wifi yet the app can't detect the rokutv on the same network. 🙄😏 With every update I hope that this is resolved and yet it never has been.

I got my Roku about 3 years ago during a freebie promo thru Sling. I had been using Chromecast prior. I was a little intimidated by the Roku at first, but I got it up and running. I cast it from my phone to the TV via my phones hot spot. We do not have wifi, so I use the hotspot for anything that's wireless and it works for me with no problems. the variety of shows are amazing and I love the fact that's there's many "extras" preloaded. it's very easy to use which is a plus.

Excellent app with plenty of free content. One feature that I really like is the ability to search for and launch shows/movies on devices that are on the same network. It's a great feature that I wish more apps would adopt. Unfortunately finding the quality free content can be difficult with the deluge of mediocre content. Better search and filtering options for free content would be nice. That said the featured movies and shows while older are still quality entertainment and free.
