Screen Mirroring: TV Cast App

To fully control your Roku devices, a Roku remote controller is needed. However, a physical controller isn’t always reachable or accessible, and the Remote for Roku TV will be a good solution during this kind of circumstance. Remote for Roku TV is a remote control application that is designed for dominating a Roku TV through Wi-fi network and even without a physical remote. The main feature of Remote for Roku TV can be divided into four parts, remote, mirror, channel and cast. Four features are contained in tabs, and they are located at the bottom of the screen and available to swap at any time.
