Application to mirror the screen and audio of your iPhone or iPad to your Roku. This can be any Roku Streaming Player, Roku Stick or Roku TV (from Hisense, TCL, Insignia and Sharp)! You can mirror any app on your iPhone or iPad to your Roku.
In using the app, there will be a couple of seconds of latency (usually between 1 and 3). So this mirroring is not suitable for gaming.
However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, watching photos, and much more!
How the app works:
1. Make sure that your iPhone or iPad is connected to the same local network as your Roku. Don't use multiple VLANs, a VPN or subnets.
2. Launch the Mirror for Roku app. It will start looking for your Roku(s) on your local network. When a Roku Player, Stick or TV is found, please select it. When you use this app for the first time, your Roku will go to the Mirror for Roku install page. Select Add Channel to add the Mirror for Roku receiver on your Roku.
3. Turn on notifications for this app. We will not spam you, but we will use this to let you know if your Roku is working correctly or not. So please, please allow it, otherwise when things don't work as they should, you are left in the dark.
4. Click on Start Mirroring to start mirroring on the Roku that is currently selected. After that, you can just go to any other app on your iPhone or iPad and the mirroring just continues to run.
5. To stop mirroring, there are two options. (1) click on the red top bar that you will see on your iPhone or iPad. (2) Go to the Mirror for Roku app and click on Stop Mirroring.
Limitations and known issues:
- When screen mirroring from Safari, there is no audio. We advice to use the UC Browser instead of Safari.
- Sometimes audio from other apps is not playing. In this case, start a screen mirroring session, then open the app you want to mirror. If there is no sound, just close the app you are mirroring and re-open it in the same mirroring session.
Some apps don't allow screen mirroring. For instance Netflix: when you start screen mirroring when running the Netflix app on your iPhone or iPad, the TV screen will turn black. This is a choice that Netflix made, there is nothing that we can do about that.

Sure there is a slight delay, but I just turn down the audio on my iPhone and it’s fine. Works perfectly. Was about to pitch my roku but now I can use it with Spotify and other accounts. Thanks!

So don’t waste your money. This app is of poor quality. It’ll only slow down your phone. It requires the use of one of the developers app to browse. There is no use in buying this app. It’s just a money trap.
Don’t buy it is a wast of money .
It’s a great app it just has a really bad delay when displaying on tv.
Followed all the steps with a Roku tv with only a perpetually spinning buffering icon to show for it. Complete waste of $5.
I was hesitant to buy the app because of people reporting that you had to “record” videos of your screen. It’s a poor choice of words from the developer, because that’s not actually what’s happening. It’s just creating a buffer. Your TV will be a few seconds behind your phone, but because of the buffer it plays sound and images smoothly. I have a ton of fitness apps with HD video and it’s so much easier to just stream them to my TV than workout to a tiny phone. Love this app. It’s exactly what I wanted and probably what you do too if you searched “mirror Roku”. Like my title says, don’t let the dummies who didn’t hit “screen record” and give the app a shot spoil it for you.
I bought this app and made sure to also download puffin web browser like the other reviews said thinking it would work. It does have sound unlike some of the other reviews. Every time I try to watch videos from puffin web browser it works for maybe 2 min and then freezes. It is jumpy and does not do its job. I thought maybe it was my internet connection but we have amazing internet speed and full bars for WiFi. I don’t have any internet problems when I’m not using this app. Something is wrong and I’m hoping they can fix otherwise I’ll be getting my money back.
The app works but audio isn’t Guaranteed smh I had the MacBook Pro app first and it works perfect but the iPhone app isn’t as good
Can I get refunded? This app should be free. It’s awful. Small picture, sound doesn’t work. I will never use this app. It was a waste of money.
Yes, the mirroring part works but the video quality is very low and there isn’t any audio for the tv. Waste of money.
Love using this app with my peleton app at home!
The idea is great but it doesn’t seem to work with Telstra TV which is a Roku box but doesn’t have access to the mirror app or channel or anything else the instructions mentioned therefore I am awaiting a refund.
Doesn’t work at all with audio, don’t get app, it’s a waste of money and time.
Games or videos won’t always play sound and the actual time mirroring isn’t long at all
I use this to stream workouts to my tv from apps on my phone and so far it has worked perfect for what I need.
Major lag and they don’t disclose that from Safari audio wont mirror. It was pointless and I want my money back. Update to developer: I actually had the Puffin and tried that and it did not work. I want my money back! I found another app that did it perfectly and was completely free.
Thanks to the devs for a quick response about a working browser for audio. I hope they update the app to reflect the new browser you have to use. I’ve also discovered Puffin browser works. There is occasional wonkiness in the stream’s frame rate and often things look choppy, so I’ve updated the review to 3 stars. For reference I’m using a 5g wireless network with speeds of 200 down and 30 up. The Roku unfortunately only handles 2.4g networks, but has no problem streaming full HD from other apps.
As others have mentioned, there’s a few second lag, which is fine for videos etc, but not great for games.
Love being able to see my YouTube lessons on the tv!
It had been unstable and subject to suddenly stopping. The tech support people were responsive but tried to blame iton my router and internet speeds ( there was nothing wrong with either). But the problems seem to have gone away with the recent updates. It is very stable now. =================== If you can live with the 1-3 second lag between what’s on your phone and what displays on the TV this works great on a Roku TV. So, not suitable for interactive stuff - (gaming, FaceTime, Skype) but fine for streaming videos or surfing. Using a small fast browser links Endless Browser as the developers recommended is better for surfing.
Love this app it’s absolutely awesome
