Install R-Cast channel in your Roku and install this R-Cast app in your iOS device. Once you connect the devices to the same Wi-Fi network, this app will detect your Roku devices.

Please note that not all videos can be cast, including HTTPS videos, live streams, etc. Videos in the web that are not in high definition, might not look the same on your HD TV as they look in a small screen. If the video website already has a Roku channel, please use its channel.

YouTube videos in HTTPS will not cast, please use the YouTube app. If you see R-Cast channel load the video and return to the home screen it is usually because of incompatible video format. Roku doesn't play all video formats that play in iOS devices.

You will only be able to cast online videos from webpages and not the videos stored in your device.

Quick Start:
• Install R-Cast channel in your Roku device: https://owner.roku.com/add/rcast
• Install this R-Cast app in your iOS device
• Connect your iOS device to the same Wi-Fi network as your Roku device
• This app will detect Roku devices in your network
• Add your Roku manually using its IP Address if it is not detected automatically
• Browse the web for your favorite entertainment in this app
• Play the videos to launch the cast menu
• Select the Roku device to cast and voila!
• Enjoy videos on the big screen!!

Upgrade to R-Cast Radical Edition (in-app purchase) to watch videos longer than 10 minutes and resume previous video casts. The upgrade removes the ads at the bottom of the browser. It doesn't remove the ads hosted by the websites you visit.

Please make sure the websites you frequently use work in R-Cast before upgrading to the Radical Edition. R-Cast channel only works with R-Cast app.

Thank you all for your feedback! Please email us if you need help. Unfortunately, there is no way for us to respond to questions in reviews.

If you have trouble detecting your Roku, reboot your phone, Roku, WiFi router and try refreshing again. If it still fails to detect then add the Roku manually using its IP address from Roku's Network Settings.

Not too bad

I have used this app for some time now and overall I love it. The only issue I have is that every so often certain sites don’t work. When I say don’t work, I mean when I enter the site the app shuts down. This time, so far, it’s been a week with the issue, but overall I like the app. Just wish it didn’t have these periods of shut down.

You are kidding me! ,

Don't uninstall once you've paid

Paid for this service, worked okay and only intermittently experienced problems. The real problem occurred when I began getting annoying pop ups and uninstalled it and reinstalled it. Now I'm being told you pay again. I guess it was good while it lasted but not so great I'm going to pay for it again. Update : was able to get service reinstalled. Emailed support and and response time was fast. Thanks.

Works. But major "upgrade" cash scam

I got the app to try it out and dumped 3$ to get the upgraded version (which is needed for the app to work).worked fine. HOWEVER THE UPGRADE IS ONLY FOR THE APP YOU PURCHASED IT ON. DO NOT DELETE THE APP! AND MAKE SURE TO UPGRADE ON THE DEVICE YOU PLAN TO USE THE APP ON! As you will have to repurchase the "upgrade" for every fresh r-cast app downloaded on every device. There are even reports of having to repurchase the upgrade after a update or even randomly. It's borderline scam-ish. If you can, try and find a free alternative. And heed my warning of not deleting the app and making sure you upgrade on the device you wish to use the app the most on!
