    Roku's review

    Published: 2013-06-26, by .

    This is the official Android version of ROKU, the well-known video streaming player

    • It turns your iPhone into a Roku RC
    • Preview photos and music located in your iPhone on your TV
    • Intuitive channel search
    • Use iPhone's keyboard to type on Roku search bar
    • Missing features: watching stats, favorite apps, add private channels

    "Roku rocks!"

    There's a small device which is challenging cable TV providers. ROKU is one of the most used set-top-boxes for video streaming in HD. A small box that gives viewers the chance to run popular video streaming services like Netflix, Hulu+, Amazon Instant Video, HBO GO and many many more. Actually, ROKU's channel store has 600+ official channels and there are already thousands of private channels.

    Since it's becoming one of the most used household devices, it needed an app to improve the user experience. And here it is. If you own a ROKU, you should download this right now. Why? First, because it offers a more intuitive layout for channels search. Second, because it turns your iPhone into a remote control for your ROKU and it even allows you to launch channels from your own list of installed channels. Third, because you can use iPhone's keyboard to type anything you want to search instead of using the awkward built in keyboard. If that three reasons aren't enough for you, you should know that you can preview photos and music located in your iPhone on your Roku

    An app which completes the Roku experience solving its lacks. Highly recommended.
