Ratings and Reviews
Works Well With My IPad
I purchase and download a lot of educational web videos, and needed a way to project them to our TV using my existing ROKU devices, so my wife could view them with me. I started out with the free version on my iPad, but recently went ahead and purchased the full features.
The only issue I have is, I have to toggle my WIFI or Airplane Mode, on my iPad, OFF and ON in order for the app to pick up my ROKU devices. It’s probably due to my wireless network setup. It’s no big deal, as I’ve gotten into the habit of doing this anytime I prepare to watch videos, and everything then works flawlessly. It’s an awesome app with excellent capability. It saved me from having to purchase additional streaming equipment compatible with my iPad-furnished proprietary app, as I don’t need an additional streaming device.
So far so good
Works well at what it is supposed to - it casts to the TV. You search for everything in the app. It acts as a browser like safari, but then you add videos to the queue if you want to watch them. This queue feature is super helpful when you're wanting to binge something. There's a small banner at the banner if you don't pay the $3 to remove it, but it's not obtrusive, and it's also not super expensive to remove. It does give you a notification at the top of the screen if you leave the app (or turn off the display), telling you to "return when convenient" as it needs the app open to avoid buffering. It does stop playing if you don't return to the app every so often, so it's quite as great as actual casting, but overall it's useable. Other than the small banner, no intrusive pop up ads or anything annoying like that. Works for how I need it to work! Recommended if you just need something easy to cast videos from the web that don't already support this.
I’ve had this app for maybe over a year now and it’s been great! The one thing I hate is that with some videos, you must have the app open or else it will uncast or buffer a ton, which I don’t understand as some other videos work completely fine with the app playing in the background. Even some videos will work sometimes with the app being closed, and other times it will say I have to keep the app open for it to work. But I’ve just kinda dealt with that. The real reason I’m writing this review is because of an issue that only begun to happen recently, for some reason no matter how good my connection is, all videos in all websites will continually buffer over and over, I don’t know why it’s begun to do this as this hasn’t been a problem before, but it’s a real shame as this is one of the only ways I can have entertainment while at home :/ and this app was so incredible when I first began to use it
