    Worked great until I switched to an LG Volt. Now it can barely establish a connection.

    This is a great app - I've been using it since late 2012 to stream videos or pictures to the roku players in my house (or at family). Its easy to use, never has any video issues, and is more reliable than many of the 'big' apps on Roku (like Hulu Plus). I had a minor issue with a recent version of Android which the developer quickly worked to fix. Highly recommended!

    I don't understand all the hate that has been posted. I even have an older phone and it works great for me. You have to have the right file format. Try the media converter app for that. Thanks for a great roku transfer app that actually works.

    I used the free demo and it worked awesome, so I got the full version but it doesn't work. I uninstalled the demo first and reinstalled but still no cigar. This seems to be a pretty common review so you might want to do something about this issue
