Teduardo Martinique: “I cannot cast to my older Roku 4230X devices - And they still work just fine. I was forced to upgrade from my earlier app version v6.3. Why? It was working fine. When I did upgrade and later used the app keyboard with a Roku device the app trigger reinstalling the Roku TV channel after I had removed it from my Roku several times. The only way I can use my earlier version of the Roku app, which I never had any problems with, is to disable the Play Store app on my phone.” – 2/5 in Play Store

CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION: “For the most part, everything works great, EXCEPT the Netflix app. I watch a lot of Netflix and i hate that the screen just goes black instead of loading Netflix. It worked for a while but don't understand why it's not loading! This is soo frustrating!!! I mean, it loads on the app, I just can't get the Rocu tv to load it. I try with the remote and with the app and get the same results on my tv !!!” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “It's not the greatest app, but it works for turning on and off my lights at home and away from home. It does this part really well. The smart scenes and scheduled timers should ALWAYS stay static to *how they were created*, but can save any changes you make at any time to that smart scene even when you're no longer in smart scenes, making them almost totally useless unless you go fix them again. Widgets can't find my lights. It works for basic features really well, but other functions are incomplete.” – 3/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “It's OK when it works. Bought four outlets from them. Programmed each to the app, and to Amazon Alexa. I have them hooked up for lighting on my. Aquariums, but I have to check daily that actually turned on and off. All 4 have completely stopped responding to the schedule since daylight savings time started. They always acknowledge Alexa when told to turn on. It's definitely something with the app. Please fix!” – 2/5 in Play Store

The app makes sounds when you press control buttons, and robot reacts to these sounds. Unfortunately, this is not described neither in user manual, nor in the app info section itself. Apart from this issue, the app interface itself is very simple, intuitive and clear for both adults and children.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Alex Ohannes: “I will be getting my money back from Aliexpress if the music play feature is not working within a month. This WILL cost you money. You can't advertise a major feature in a product and have it not work. I bought this LED strip to be able to have them dance to music playing locally on the phone, but no music ever plays in the "music" tab. Unlike many other reviews, connection was impressively simple (all you do is open the app and it is already connected, there simply is no pairing process).” – 2/5 in Play Store

Amber van Gameren: “The app works fine most of the time. A small issue is that it says the color should be red but the one that shines might be purple. But that is personally not an issue for me because ill just try colors untill its the one i want. My big issue is with the timer feature. The timer moves when i put it on a specific time. And it usually move a few hours so its very noticeable. If that gets fixed it would have been a 5 star for me.” – 3/5 in Play Store
