Roku is a mobile streaming service that doubles as a second remote for your TV or other devices. It allows you to connect your phone with a TV and watch your favorite shows for free – or for a small subscription payment. The app also has a couple of additional features that help it stand out of its niche, and that's what makes it so popular.
Design and Usability 4.5/5
An interface is the first thing you see, and your overall comfort of using an app depends on it. Roku has a very convenient design that makes its features clear and easily accessible. You can choose any channel with just a few taps – and the app helps you find your favorites by showing the featured list right on the main page of the app. The experience of using Roku proves to be quite smooth, and that sets it apart from most other apps in the mobile remotes niche.
Key Functions 5/5
However, this sleek design isn't the only thing you're going to love about Roku. The app also has a variety of additional features, including a rather powerful search system that allows you to look not only for movies and TV shows, but also for particular actors, genres, and so on. The app recognizes your voice commands, but you can still use your keyboard. We are impressed by how easy it's to enter text with this app, and you can also use it to show photos and play music.
As far as we know, there have been no serious security issues with this app, and it seems rather safe to use. After all, Roku doesn't store any important financial or personal information, so there's nothing to worry about. Even the voice search feature doesn't make you vulnerable since you use it only for searching movie titles and channels, and there's an option to use your headphones if you're not content with playing something out loud.
Roku is a great streaming app with hundreds of free movies and TV shows – and thousands of other visual delights for premium users. Add an intuitive interface, and ability to speed up your typing with a built-in keyboard, and an option to use the app as a remote for your TV – and you'll get the idea of what Roku is so popular for. While some of the features are not free, it's still one of those must-have apps when it comes to free mobile streaming services.
