    If you have Roku, this program is a must have. I currently use this with a corporate projector connected to Roku and use my PowerPoint presentations on it, movie demos and training photos. This thing rocks!

    What I really like is the ability to send a photo or video to my Roku. That is awesome. I had to add my Roku manually, though. The file browser is very limited. It only shows some pictures and videos, and there's no way to actually browse. And you can't skip to the next file through the Roku but maybe Juice could add that function in the app. There's no way to rotate the pictures before sending
