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 tried this expecting the set-up to be painful and possibly not working, but prepared to request a refund if that happened. I saw that the app developers seemed really response to issues though and read reviews that they respond quickly. I also read a reviews that confirmed at least one person was able to cast the Peloton app, which is what I was trying to cast. Then I read another review and response from the developers that indicated if you are able to screen record the app and, you should be able to cast. So I tried that and easily confirmed that I could. I decided to give it a chance. OMGEE! I was able to set this up in 2 minutes and do my first 20 min workout with no problem at all!! Since this is only my first time using it, will have to see if the ease of use and performance remain consistent in the long-term. But for $5, thus far I am REALLY pleased! I searched for a solution on a whim this morning after trying multiple times in the past with no success. So color me happy!

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’ve trying weeks now to find a way to link my iphone to my roku to screen mirror on it and I finally found this app. It was a little tricky trying to get it to work at first, it wasn’t the app as much as it was me. I messaged support and they very quickly replied and helped me figure out the problem. It was as simple as restarting my tv (once it turned back on it, it had done an update and was ready to go). So, my husband and I were playing with it a little last night and it does seem to lag and be behind what my phone was showing us but it’s not like that’s really going to cause any dissatisfaction with the app. You’re watching it on the big screen anyhow, you’re not gonna notice.

Mirror for Roku - AirBeamTV Description
3149 chars

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.
