Appestry part of our Entertainment and have average installs from 100000 to 500000. Last Update Aug. 22, 2015. Google play rating is 67.8115. Current verison is 1.08. Actual size 1.0 KB.
Really slow.... and it crashes!!!! App is reallllllly slow on my note 4 with lollipop recently installed and it crashes on the roku app. Please fix, as I already paid for the radical edition. It used to work, but something changed. I can't even watch youtube after clearing the cache. By the way I own a roku 3.
Excellent App Works flawlessly. Gives you the choice of Roku players (or local) to send the video to before it starts playing. Works great with jetflicks which is commercial-free unlimited TV (all seasons) that uses its own player. R-cast has cool options like allowing you to set the default streaming site of your choice and launching the Roku android remote after starting the stream etc. Support is great. They resolved an issue I had on multiple devices and they did it the same day I requested assistance.
Come on please work It worked great until i upgraded. I had some technical problems but they were resolved. Love the pop up blocker. Makes it easier to use. Highly recommend.
Excellent app. Excellent support Love the app. Had technical problems during the initial setup and developer was gracious enough to follow through till the end and help address my problems. 5 stars for the support
This app don't work I bought the app and it won't cast to my roku it gets to the loading page and goes back to the home screen I'd like a refund of my money or something
Overloaded with adds I cant get even close to finding a video on the web that I want because I'm completely overloaded with adds, constantly telling me phone has a virus, i need to play clash of pans, or that my penis is too small. Why would i buy the full "add free" version if i cant get this one to work at all?
Bad! Payed for the premium rcast and wont let me play online videos i want my money back.
R Cast I want you to correct this issue of not connecting on my Samsung phone to my WiFi TV FAST
I don't get it... What's the point of this app? I followed the exact instructions, but it still wouldn't let me cast to my tv. I would like my money back please.
Can't even click or scroll on any page. Sites load but I'm not able to select anything. Rubbish.
Doesn't work That pretty much says it all. I have a motorola smartphone, 3 months old 4.4 os. Can't make rcast work.
R.cast I would give it a 5 but it want play anything. It used but now it won't. I was working fine. Now when I cast to Roku it goes to the load screen and backs out
Used to work Loved the app but now it'll start to load then go back to the home screen! I would like a solution to fix it. If not I would like a refund
Good app! Works pretty well! I don't like that I have to re-enter the app after each episode of the show I am watching.
R-CAST Great way to stream from my android phone. Works very well and never had any issues.
Keeps forgetting the WiFi settings The app which I upgraded so to play longer videos keeps forgetting the settings and will not find the network after repeated tries have to put back in each time I open the app and after each play. It is all I can use to cast to the roku stick and frankly making me regret buying roku for streaming. Can anyone help with this problem.
What the doctor ordered Actually using this to stream video from a Windows Phone; this software allows you to stream from a web page to your Roku, so it should work with Hulu and other web sites. Using it with Easy Transfer, navigating to the web address created by that app, and then passing the video a second time to the Roku from my Android. What I haven't figured out is how to navigate to files stored on the Android and cast those to the Roku, but this will suffice.
Rubish Every time I played a video it says " can't play video" what a waste of cash
I will give it 5 stars again once it works. it stopped working and I am getting fustrated :/ not enjoying this. it stop working
Sucks!!!!! This use to work great. Then, after the update it will not work at all. Roku will not fine the app and this app will not work. I use to love this, but now..... it sucks
The app freezes I thought the app would be useful so I paid the fee but when time to cast stuff, websites were just unresponsive. I want a refund. Why pay for something that doesnt work? I ended up getting google chromecast.
Stalls This app loads to one page and doesn't work past the first page browsed. I want my refund back for the ad removal.
New Samsung galaxy It is very slow with loading videos on YouTube and freezes frequently. But casting a movie works fine. Even with full Internet reception and full WiFi connection it still has these flaws.
Waste of time Everything I try to cast says that it's not compatible with rcast and that it needs to be updated. You tube is the only site that I can get to attempt to play (although it doesn't work either) and roku already has you tube so it's useless. I'm so disappointed
doesn't work with YouTube Sucks, even shows YouTube in screenshots! Want my money back!
Refund please. The app itself is not bad but it isn't for me. How do I go about getting the refund? There says there is an option but I must be too dense because I'm not seeing it any where.
Failed to cast It picks up the Roku stick and ask to play on it. When selected prompts an error. Help
It worked fine when i first got it now it wants to redirect me to the app store every time i want to stream a video to purchase a stupid app on it's page
To limited Can't watch the apps from your phone. You can only choose shows from their app and you have to pay for shows over 10 minutes. You tube is better than this. It's a rip off. Good luck to those who want to actually watch streaming video from your phone.
Some files not supported No support for Mkv or Avi, and cannot seek sometimes, but works for Mp4
R Cast It stopped casting to my Roku device i tried unistalling it and reinstalling it and still wont cast anymore.
Was working I loved this app when I first discover so much I brought the app (and I never buy apps) now I feel like I'm being ripped off because when I go to cast a movie it say error casting please retry so I retry same error app is up to date SO WHAT'S THE ISSUES
R Cast extends usefulness of ROKU This application helped out tremendously in my effort to cut the cable. With the channels offered by ROKU & and the private channels available for the ROKU, this app will help my save about $1200 dollars this and every year.
What the heck???? I am excited to watch the walking dead episodes that I missed on the amc website. I chose to play it through this app so that I can sit back and enjoy it on my roku/tv.... m thank goodness, It begins to play! So I kick back AND GET COMFORTABLE, and What the...????.!!!!! It stops after the commercial???? like 20 seconds in??? What??!!! Noooooo!! What a tease :( How can this be?
Roku 3 It tries to connect, it just doesn't and will crash again and again.
Doesn't work Can not cast to tv
Stops playing after ad Will play video once you cast it to roku but stops playing on roku after ad on websites. The issue is it pays the ad but stops playing on roku after ad and the actual video clip starts. Please fix so it plays both video ad and the actual video on roku and doesn't stop playing on roku after video ad.
Great! Works really well! Your tablet or phone needs to be connected to same WiFi source. When I connected roku through router and tablet through extender did not work. On same router it is fantastic!
Horrible app. Doesn't need to be working "flawlessly" for me to be content with the app but it doesnt work at all i also paid for the upgrade and it still doesn't work.
Web streamers I love this app, it works so freaking good, it may not be perfect, but am able to play almost any video off near any web combined with my roku and stream on tv. Just needs a better pop up blocker
This app acts like its on acid It worked perfectly fine for first video . after first video it started to bug out wouldn't let me go to to web pages. And now it will not find my roko.. And I'm standing right next to it.smh
Works but only embedded vids Had to change ratings.Why? Because these guys responded to my complaint immediately. So hard to find good support in this day of.."oh well read the fine print dummy"...Thanks RCAST crew..you guys rock....People Read before you buy! Please...
Really good app Works xlnt w roku. Easy to identify which roku device u want use. Allows you to name them for easy recognition. Screen mirroring starts quickly. For a free app its awesome. Very little lag in the stream.
I am disappointed with the app I did the upgrade and it still doesn't let me cast longer than 10 minutes hope you can help me.
? Everything works as promised. If you can maybe add a queuing feature, the would be even better. Thank you for this app devs!
Stopped working, but now seems ok App was working perfectly until I upgraded. Now it won't play at all. Hold on, maybe I spoke too soon, seems to work now.
Works fine Haven't had a problem yet. Shows movies as they would on phone. Can pause etc, using the roku remote. I like it ")
Won't work on nexus five with latest updates 5.5.1 and roku 3
Doesnt work I did my part, it starts to route to tv, but doesnt. Wanted to upgrade bcause most videos I watch r longer than 10 minutes, but I cant get a 3 munute one to play
Work's Great Will give it 5 stars if you can add caching of last url accessed on Roku so that you can start video from Roku and dont need device again to cast
Thank you R-Cast I'm on bed rest recovering from a back injury, thanks to R-Cast I can watch all the newest movies from the comfort of my own bed without having to worry about changing DVD's or finding each remote. I'd be going stir crazy without it.
Our Roku can do more now Update : Not working properly guys.One big feature that I really missed in Roku was the browser. And this app fills that gap, to an extent. I am now able to project movies from website onto my TV with R-cast. This app is definitely not perfect and has ways to go at getting better since not all websites seem to work on this app and the interface feels clumsy. I've still given it 4*s because it gets the job done with some of the websites I frequently visit. Roku remote can take over once projected! Love that.
Paid for it and now not working! I paid for this app and it was working for about 2 weeks then all of a sudden, it's not working at all now. When I go to the app, it boots me right back out to the home screen before I even try and get to a website. Don't understand what happened.
Still starts to load umovies fine opens up on roku as it did then crashes while loading movie(thanks to the dev for a fast reply to this its probably the website i use Umovies that is having problems idk)WAS awesome till it stopped working i will say Rcast has good customer service. Not sure used to work fine, dev said its this because of page redirect but Umovies site still works on my web browsers, must just be incompatible with my galaxy tab now after an update somewhere, too bad it was great and i even got the upgrade, would be nice to see a fix for that someday. Oh well
Great App. Awesome support. I installed R-Cast and the update because of the good reviews. After installation, I couldn't view from Roku because the cast menu didn't appear. I contacted R-Cast for help and received a prompt, detailed and courteous reply from a developer, Ramesh. I was even offered a refund for my trouble! What I learned was that the website was not sharing with R-Cast that a video was playing. Go to a different website, problem solved. I love this app! And their customer service is outstanding.
PutLocker 4 the win. Paid for it, had a few glitches at first but they were quickly fixed after i sent the developers a message. All you gotta do is find a good website, and its smooth sailing. Casting is easy, i do it from my boost mobile phone and after initial streaming you dont need your device since roku streams directly from wifi. Solid app, better than chrome cast imho. Kudos !
Not working After paying for the upgraded version I was able to watch videos fine for like one week. Now it crashes every time I try to play a video
Won't work It tries to play the video, but it won't ever Olay and the app crashes on the roku
Elwa I paid 4 it Stopped working . If it does not work I will legally demand my money back
I have to pay to beam in my own home You get 10 mins free maybe you should put that in your description as of you have to pay. I'm going back to twonky
R.cast I would give it a 5 but it want play anything. It used but now it won't. I was working fine. Now when I cast to Roku it goes to the load screen and backs out
I really love it At first only could stream 10 minutes but I got the radical edition cost $2.49 now I can watch full movies from my phone exactly to the TV great job I definitely recommend buying worth it time and $$$
Resuming It'd be nice if it didn't save the state when I destroy the app. Every time I restart it the state information persists. So I get blocked in add loops with the only solution being to delete the stored app data. Edit: thanks for the reply. I'll bring the rating up.
Have to keep telling it where to cast Its a great program except for the fact that I have to keep telling it where to cast. Whenever theres a commercial it pops back up asking where I want to cast it. It needs a timeout function or a default cast option so I dont have to keep telling it where to cast.
Better than the Firefox Roku app, but Most web pages require an app to view content via mobile device.
Awesome.... BUT.. This app is definitely very handy and I love it. Makes it streaming to my Roku SO easy. However, the app has started redirecting to weird scammy websites and back to the app store to download games. I know it is the app because it does this on every website I visit within the app :( making it very very hard to stream my movies and tv shows. My regular browser works fine and does not redirect so it isn't my device that has an adware/malware issue. Please investigate and fix asap :(
Great fun! Let's me stream all kinds of videos from my tablet to my big screen HDTV.
this APP. ROCKS A must for ROKU... UNLESS your rich and or have a headache fetish.... THANK YOU to whoever made this APP. possible.... DTP
Had to edit. If I pay for this stop the ads!!! All the ads and pop ups suck! But it is a good app otherwise. I went looking for apps so I can stream my phone to my Roku without having to buy a Samsung allshare cast or Blu-ray and this app is amazing. Completely worth the small little 2.49 I paid for it.
Nice idea It doesn't work like I wanted it to. It wouldn't play the videos I wanted but customer service is excellent!!!
Works great for me Exactly what I've been looking for. Works very well for me, no issues.
Does Not Work For Me I don't know what this is supposed to do but it will not play videos to my Roku even with a web address.
Developer happy to help Spent a few hours monkeying with it, and can't get it to do what I want. Developer offered help, then offered refund.
Doesn't work It connects but when I try to play a video it won't stream on my TV.
Okay Would love it if it would go just a little faster but all in all worth the price.
Back to the drawing board Does not work in samsung galaxy s4 videos will not play
Not letting me play on roku Bought it and won't let me play. The other apps let me preview on my roku. This doesn't and I want my money back
Need money back! This app is no good! It allowed for me to watch two clips and now that I've paid $2.49 for the upgrade it doesn't work at all! Please advise of how I can be refunded to avoid me from processing a fraud report and having my Bank refunding the money? I did however just send a request for a refund as they were quick to respond to my comment.
Wonky, but worth it Getting R-cast to pull the right video from the website your on can be a bit of a chore. However, once you've gotten down how to get it to work on a specific site it's the easiest thing in the world to sail the internet as binary beard, the digital pirate
Won't connect It worked fine, but past two days haven't been steaming my online videos. Disappointed...
Screwing us!! I hope you like to get **** and pay for a free app and service
So far so good! Works like a charm for streaming movies from the web!
Too much latency!! The app freezes when just looking up a URL. I've had to clear, force stop, and restart too much. Thanks but no thanks...
Outstanding app Amazing app , the browser is awesome able to watch streaming videos from my tablet or phone via the roku 3, unlike firefox which is another app that doesn't work ,..... well worth the money paid a☆☆☆ thankyou
Just bad I can't even cast my screen for roku to play what's on my android device. Plus the navigation system needs actual items in it that can help you connect to roku
Gotten much better! The things that needed to be fixed, in my opinion, have been. It's steadily becoming a 5 star app.
Great app I love this app, best one around and the support is also first class
Love it Great app but forgets my device sometimes
Won't work with my Roku 3
It fails casting movies. It loads and then goes right back to the roku home screen. I guess I wasted my money.
I have not had any problems streaming my movies until a week ago. Now, all I get is the start up for 3 secs then I get home screen again. Ugh! Please fix!!
Why in the world whenever I try and stream movies or TV show from certain websites do all these stupid ads keep popping up. It's unreal, literally tons and tons of ads take over my android device and I have to completely close the app out. Why can't you guys, (the developers) make it more like AD block for Android so this NEVER happens? I also paid for the app and I was not expecting this kind of BS. Please help!
Does not work.....can't get refund hate it Downloaded free edition first and upgraded to radical edition for use with my Roku3. ..but videos cast for less than one minute as soon as roku remote app pops up . sucks waste of money
Casting ERROR. The same message keeps on showing up everytime i try to use the app. Please fix it. I already upgraded the account.
Great idea but doesn't work Love it....when it works. I am trying to use it but when I tap on the "cast to roku" it sends me to the roku remote app 90% of the time. And I upgraded! Frustrating. Update -- GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE! Unfortunately app still isn't working for me. Upgrading rating to 4 because of customer service.
Lies Bought the paid version to get the play time and get rid of ads. Instead i keep getting pop ups to get rid of ads, and i get ads... Not only ads, but sends me to google play store and won't let me leave unless i close the app. Even then it will send me there again if i don't load another page right away. Don't pay for this junk full of lies.
I paid for it and it doesn't work I paid for the service and it never comes up. It's aware that there's a roku nearby but nothing happens.
Don't work. Starts to load video then goes back to home. Even upgraded. Still sucks.
Cecil Why pay for a app that does not work. It won't cast any thing or even bring up the option to cast. I have used it before and stuff I used to cast won't cast. Fix it so every kind of movie or show can be cast if your going to charge to use this app!!!
So ive been e-mailing some guy back and forth over the fact that I bought the app and had to reset my phone to fix it. So by doing that it made me buy it again. I feel that I should not have to buy it again but they want to so they make more money. Do not buy this app on reason that they dont do good business. They has been rude to me the whole time! R-Cast is not a good company and ill give my business to someone else that deserves it this company has been horrible to deal with!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!#
Great Very good app, I have paid to get the full version and used it at least 2 times a day since. It is a bit annoying when some stuff doesn't cast or be recognised has a video but mostly great experience.
Great Software and Service I used the free version for about a day. I had to upgrade because it is well designed software. Although I cannot stream every webcast, it still works great! The customer service is outstanding. On this point alone you should get R-Cast! Thank you all at Appestry.
Doesn't work I paid for the app because it sounded great, but it played about 30 minutes of a movie, then stopped. I restarted the movie where it left off and 20-30 minutes later, it stopped again. Now, it refuses to play anything: just asks me to select which roku, pretends to be loading, and returns to the home screen. Frustrated bordering on upset.
Cannot Mirror This is so frustrating. I paid for the ad free version and yet I cannot successfully mirror to my roku. It mirrors for a half a second then reloads to the home screen. Zero stars from me!!
Elwa I paid 4 it Stopped working at first. It does work right away. It takes some juggling to grasp all methods of using
Do not work I have a LG K7 running android 5.1.1 every time I try to cast a show it don't work. When try to show for the start button to lunch the cast menu it don't pop up I tried to use the full view it that don't work need help to make it work or refund
GREAT APP!!! But.... This app is GREAT and I do LOVE it but 2 more things would make it even BETTER!!! #1 That there would be an option to continue watching (like Netflix does) so that we are uninterrupted. And #2 is that the episodes that have already been enjoyed turn a different color so we don't watch the same one 5min in and have to back all the way out and search for the one we haven't seen.... So, other than these 2 but HUGE things this is a great app!
Bad I can't cast anything, it says retrieving then asks me to select play on the Roku device again.
Works well w/Roku Player Great app to cast streaming videos from web to Roku device. Worth the purchase.
Does not work! Did not work Started loading and then straight to home screen. Multiple video files. I want a refund !
To simply put it, it doesnt work properly. The video on a page worked fine the first time, next time, it gave some error with flash player. Also in some other sites, it didnt provide an option to cast. It doesnt work reliably in the r-cast browser. This should've been added as an extension on the chrome browser. Now we are facing browser compatibility issues.
Very nice. It's kinda hit or miss on some 3rd party websites. Gotta find the right kind of files your phone recognizes and beams to the Roku, and if you lose your internet connection momentarily you have to recast it and figure out where you were at on your movie. Other than those this app is freaking awesome. I don't need cable/dish or Netflix/Hulu anymore. 4 out of 5 stars for sure!
Worked like twice. Pretty much 90% of videos won't cast. App has gotten even worse..... Stops working almost every time I use it.... Sites won't load, and when they do the app doesn't recognize my Roku. It's one or the other. Have not been able to use it in weeks. I wish I could get my money back!
Loved the app at first. But recently it's been not playing movies. I can stream them to my device (phone or tablet) but goes to load on the roku then goes back to home screen. I really dislike paying for apps that don't work.
To many pop-ups Why pay for the full version when you have more pop-ups than movies. Takes over 10 minutes for the main screen to come up by then I rather watch Netflix
If you need something specific... Contact the company first to see if it will work for you. It wasn't what I needed but they were helpful and stood behind their product. That's rare in app development and I totally appreciate that.
Great product and even better customer service Had an issue with the app last week after purchasing it last September. They responded very quickly to my email, less than 24 hours and we're very helpful in getting it to function correctly
Getting annoyed The concept is great. The ability to stream any website from your device to your roku. And for awhile it sorta worked ok...but now when ever I try to load a specific website it loads then goes back to my phones home page. It doesn't give me a chance to do anything. I paid for this app so I didn't have ads. But like I said I'm getting annoyed. Please fix this.
Piece of junk! Paid for the app and it won't work! It acts like it's loading on my tv and then goes back to the main screen. Nothing has showed up since I paid for the app. The free version did actually show up on my tv...
I downloaded this app so I'd be able to watch episodes and movies from Kisscartoon on my Roku. As instructed, I added the R cast channel to my Roku first, then downloaded the app to my android along with the upgrade. The videos would constantly load but never play. There's $2.49 down the drain.
Not working Detects my Roku device but never connects to it to beam web videos on my TV. Should've quickly requested a refund but left it too late. Now this developer has done me under. Gritting my teeth.
Even the premium paid version doesn't work Tried to use this app, tried upgrading to premium. It repeatedly crashed. It's junk. I don't usually write reviews but this app really is awful.
The rcast stop working I was able to cast videos before I purchased the radical edition. Now after couple of weeks later it stopped working. Not a good experience at all.
R-cast isn't working for me can some one tell me how it worked for 2 days and now there's a message that say unfortunately stopped for some unknown reason and I paid to upgrade I pay to upgrade the app gives me some stupid reason as to how it unfortunately stopped working
Ten minute limit is worthless Bad enough it doesn't work for all formats but ten minutes, come on. Not worth paying for such a limited ability.
Used to love it Worked perfectly until about april. Then it stopped letting me block any pop ups and it wont play any videos without redirecting me multiple times. Havent been able to use. And i shouldnt have to email you when you have obviously had enough complaints to know something is wrong.
What is this garbage that I paid for? Just paid $2.50 to upgrade and it does not at all!! Once I select from my Android phone "cast on my Roku" the Roku app starts for 3 seconds then disappears. Give me my refund if this is how it works
Stopped working!! I've paid for it, so no pop ups and ads and I can stream as long of a video as wanted...worked great! But now me and wife cant get it to work on either phone!
Needs work It's not my connection first off bc everything else works with flying colors it constantly buffers annoying needs to be updated
Nice when there's sound Sometimes there's no sound on my tv with some movies but there is on the app on my phone. I love it when there is sound. I just don't understand why it's not always working. I love it and don't want a refund. I want it to work. Please advise. What E-mail?
