    Doesn't connect to roku at all from 521 device. Useless

    Great app! Thanks, Roku, for creating it for Windows Phone. But just like the Android and iOS versions, the WP8 app needs the ability to send photos, video, and music from WP8 to the Roku. The Roku interface also needs a "My Favorites" and/or "Recently Watched" beyond "My Channels" to be less unwieldy at finding what one really wants to watch now amongst all My Channels.

    Nokia Lumia 521: Opened it, I see Roku sign, and it freezes my phone so bad that all screen "buttons" lock and I can't do nothing but turn the phone off and restart it. It also doesn't work unless u got WiFi, and that WiFi MUST connect to ur roku as well. Im deleting this garbage.

    Good app, but would like that my phone recognizes it as a roku app as well (hope that gets fixed in future update)
