The first time was tricky and a warning...if you try to use a roku tv to mirror and they give you customer service phone number, the people who answer will want access to your computer or I whatever...DO NOT... just down load this app and deal with them! I now love this app and it makes my iFit on my 32” roku a pleasure and I hate to workout! Four stars not 5 because of the buffering...I have a super router, fast internet etc so buffering solutions didn’t work, still love it and today it only happened once. Hope this helps anyone!

I initially tried all the free ones I could find that claimed to do the same thing, and none of them worked properly. Even the one that let you try it once for free and then pay didn’t work. So I was understandably very hesitant to drop $5 just to see if this one did. It was a gamble that completely paid off. So far I’ve been able to stream videos multiple times with no problems. There’s a few-second delay, which is well advertised before you download it. As long as you make sure your audio and video are coming from your tv (instead of audio through phone and video on tv), there are no sync issues. Great app, and literally the only one I tried that actually worked! My only disappointment, which is substantial enough to want to lower the stars I give, is that this company makes each tv brand it’s own app, so it’s another $5 if you want to stream to another branded tv, as well as the annoyance of it being a separate app on your phone. I really wish everything was included in one app. That being said, wonderful job on making an app that works, and I hope my taking the time to give 5 stars will encourage you to make the proposed changes and keep working on perfecting the app. Thanks a bunch! (Much cheaper than an Apple TV!)

I read all the reviews and honestly I was worried that it wasn't going to work, but i figured I could just ask for a refund through apple if it didn't. I wanted to watch Drybar comedy app on my roku tv but it wouldn't connect through the drybar app for compatibility issues. This app works just like it says it does. I downloaded this app on my tv, and then paid for the app on my phone. Both connected to the same wifi. Started mirroring and opened the drybar app. Worked perfectly. Sound came through and everything. It has a few second delay but not a big deal. Even when i rotated my phone it went full screen on the tv. I tested whether this was possible to mirror the drybar app with sound before purchasing, by screen recording it while playing, and I was able to record video with sound. This app crashed once during use. Not sure why but I was able to pick up where I left off pretty quickly so I am still satisfied with it.

I had a hard time with this app. Being in the age of instant everything....I almost gave up. But I wrote them and they replied within 2 minutes...and stayed with me step by step until I had it up and running and streaming on my Roku TV! I also have a Roku stick it works with on a regular TV. I have written them about 4 times and they reply in less than 5 minutes every single time. Today with their help, I changed to a better browser and got sound and closed captioning working even when I paused and then came back. I realize twice it was the browser not working with this app and the browser not updating. I never heard back after writing the browsers for help. They know which browsers work best for which devices and trouble shoot with you...they do not send you a computerized response where you have to figure it all out on your own. I am a retired, disabled grandmother of 12....so believe me when I tell you I am not computer literate but have always been treated with respect by the airbeamTV/Mirror for Roku Support! I love being able to stream on a 55” TV again with great sound/picture/closed captioning! THANK YOU AIR BEAM!

I paid for this app to download after my iWebTV app stopped working. And it’s been great. You just open the app while on the same WiFi as your tv. And connect. That’s it. It literally has your whole phone screen but on the tv. It’s like screen record with iPhone but recording to the tv. When you’re done, just disconnect. I was able to watch many online videos, Facebook videos, view my camera roll on the tv, etc.

Application to mirror the screen and audio of your iPhone or iPad to your Roku. This can be any Roku Streaming Player, Roku Stick or Roku TV (from Hisense, TCL, Insignia and Sharp)! You can mirror any app on your iPhone or iPad to your Roku.

In using the app, there will be a couple of seconds of latency (usually between 1 and 3). So this mirroring is not suitable for gaming.

However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, watching

photos, and much more!

How the app works:

1. Make sure that your iPhone or iPad is connected to the same local network as your Roku. Don't use multiple VLANs, a VPN or subnets.

2. Launch the Mirror for Roku app. It will start looking for your Roku(s) on your local network. When a Roku Player, Stick or TV is found, please select it. When you use this app for the first time, your Roku will go to the Mirror for Roku install page. Select Add Channel to add the Mirror for Roku receiver on your Roku.

3. Turn on notifications for this app. We will not spam you, but we will use this to let you know if your Roku is working correctly or not. So please, please allow it, otherwise when things don't work as they should, you are left in the dark.

4. Click on Start Mirroring to start mirroring on the Roku that is currently selected. After that, you can just go to any other app on your iPhone or iPad and the mirroring just continues to run.

5. To stop mirroring, there are two options. (1) click on the red top bar that you will see on your iPhone or iPad. (2) Go to the Mirror for Roku app and click on Stop Mirroring.

Limitations and known issues:
1. Audio
- When screen mirroring from Safari, there is no audio. We advice to use the Dolphin Mobile Browser (free on the App Store) instead of Safari.
- Sometimes audio from other apps is not playing. In this case, start a screen mirroring session, then open the app you want to mirror. If there is no sound, just close the app you are mirroring and re-open it in the same mirroring session.

2. DRM
Some apps don't allow screen mirroring. For instance Netflix: when you start screen mirroring when running the Netflix app on your iPhone or iPad, the TV screen will turn black. This is a choice that Netflix made, there is nothing that we can do about that.

Sure there is a slight delay, but I just turn down the audio on my iPhone and it’s fine. Works perfectly. Was about to pitch my roku but now I can use it with Spotify and other accounts. Thanks!
