One of the best things about this app is it's ability to work with other apps. For example, long press a link to a photo, song or video in the browser and share it to the Juice app to start it playing on the Roku. Or long press an episode in your Podcast app and share it to Juice to hear it through your Roku connected system.

- Some MP4s created on Android devices may not work since Roku doesn't support all codecs. It depends on the Android device. Also, the Roku doesn't support videos taken in portrait mode.

- If you notice lag or unresponsiveness, power off your android device and/or the Roku and try again. This resolves nearly all connectivity issues. You should only have to do this infrequently.

    This app was just okay for streaming a song or two. I could never get it to play a podcast or a video, until now....oh but wait! I can't stream music anymore, cause why? It stops unexpectedly, cause why? It kicks me off the second I click on the music tab, cause why? I don"t know...maybe times are changing and its just me but I'm not liking the new feature

    The video sometimes plays depending on the format. If I have HD or widescreen format, it will say that it can't play. The music, I try using the pause button, but instead it goes to the next track. I can't use the menu from the drop down to pause and play. I have to use the D-pad to choose from the tv screen, which means the tv needs to be on and not just the speakers.

    Won't give me option to select folder with my movies in it. Have to completely kill up for it to refresh and search directory. Doesn't work on my tablet with 32 GB SD card, but works on my phone with 16 GB SD.

    Since the most recent Android and Roku updates this app is no longer working. It will not recognize my Roku. I've restarted both devices, checked to make sure the IP address hadn't changed and even did a factory reset on my tablet thinking that might be the issue. Used to be my favorite app for streaming from my tablet to my Roku3 but now it's useless.
