Application to mirror the screen and sound of iPhone or iPad to Roku. This can be any Roku Streaming Player, Roku Stick or Roku TV (from Hisense, TCL, Insignia, Element, Onn and Sharp)! You can mirror any app on iPhone or iPad to Roku.
When using the app, there will be a couple of seconds waiting time (usually between 1 and 3). So this mirror is not suitable for games.
However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, seeing photos and much more!
1. Make sure your iPhone or iPad is connected to the same local area network as Roku. Do not use multiple VLANs, VPNs or subnets.
2. Launch the Mirror for Roku app. It will start looking for your Roku (s) on the local network. When a Roku Player, Stick or TV is found, please select it. When using this app for the first time, Roku goes to the Mirror for Roku installation page. Select Add Channel to add the Mirror for the Roku receiver to your Roku.
Turn on notifications for this app. We do not spam you, but we will use this to tell you if your Roku is working properly or not. So please, please allow it, if not, when things do not work as they should, you will be left in the dark.
4. Click Start Mirroring to start mirroring on the currently selected Roku. After that, you can just go to any other app on your iPhone or iPad, and the mirroring will continue to run.
5. To stop mirroring, there are two options. (1) Click on the red top line that you want to see on your iPhone or iPad. (2) Go to the Mirror for the Roku app and click on Stop Mirroring.
Limitations and known issues:
Some apps block screen mirroring. This means that application developers can choose even if they want to block Screen Mirroring. For example, Netflix, Disney and AppleTV + have decided to block this.
This is a simple test you can do to see if the app you want to mirror has blocked screen mirroring:
Open the relevant app and slide up the Control Center on iPhone / iPad. Then click Screen Recorder and start recording the screen of the camera roll. Look at the app you want to mirror and stop the screen capture at some point. Then go to your Photos app and watch the video that was recorded. If the recorded video shows the app you want to mirror, it works fine. If the video is blank, the app you want to mirror does not allow screen mirroring.
About screen capture and privacy
Although there are screen capture alerts, we do not record your screen in files, and we do not send any content to a server. We only store data temporarily in memory, before it is streamed to TV. When streaming, the contents are removed from memory.

“Worked well!” – 5 STARS – by HeatherWorky
Sure there’s a slight delay, but I’m just turning down the volume on my iPhone, and that’s fine. Works perfectly. Was about to throw my roku, but now I can use it with Spotify and other accounts. Thanks!
“Love it !!! Thank you developers” – 5 STARS – by Kenjikaea
It works smoothly for me at the moment on an iPhone X with no layers at all. I can watch movies playing apps from my smart TV.
When you like the app, do not forget to give it a positive rating! Thanks in advance from the AirBeamTV development team!
