    This app works really well on my galaxy tab 2 and connected easily to my Roku 2 player. I can watch my videos from my tablet on my TV and also I can cast online videos to the TV. It is easy to use and automatically detects my Roku. I like that I can send a video or music to play and then use another app on my tablet while it plays on my TV, multitasking is always good.
