Love the photo stream option for the screen saver--what I hate about it is that it doesn't show all the pictures. We have uploaded over 200 pictures, but for some reason it only shows a fraction of them and there is no way to customize how they are showed--that feature would be very helpful!! If it wasn't for this one fault, it would be 5 stars--Roku is simple and easy to use, no complaints other than the photo stream!!

Doesn't always connect, and the most recent update changed the layout to add an Account button where the Devices button used to be. How would you like it if I came to your house and rearranged the buttons on your remote? Also, why do I need an account button? Incredibly annoying, and no customization options. There are better third party apps that have fewer ads, connect faster, and have a better layout.

This app is... Awesome!! You can use your device as a remote, there's an option to play audio through your phone, super handy imo keeps it quiet for the roommates, there's even an audio delay adjustment feature to help adjust for any delay you might experience with the audio feature. I'm kind of a geek with this stuff and I'm thoroughly pleased. Be ware, if your TV doesn't have a static IP it sometimes won't turn on through the app.
