no Roku iPad app

I've installed the free Roku app on my iPhone and my Android tablet.  However, there is no free Roku app in my iPad's App Store -- only a bunch of cheesy knock-offs where they try to charge you money any time you hit a button. :cry:

The iPhone app works on the iPad.

Re: no Roku iPad app

Are you filtering by iPad only? Don't do that.

I assume you mean "turn off iPad filtering?"

When you open the App Store, go to Search, type 'Roku' in the search bar, look to the left of the search bar. See where it says "Filters"? There you go.

Re: no Roku iPad app

It would be nice to update the Roku app to finally be universal, with native support for the iPad as well.  The app has been regularly updated (with Roku OS 8 features for example), and even being optimized for the latest iPhone X display aspect ratio.

Unfortunately the iPad App Store defaults to filtering for native iPad apps only, which hides it from casual searchers.

Re: no Roku iPad app

Yes! 

I had thought that Apple was going to start pushing developers to either make apps universal, or offer an iPad-specific version. Instead of having read that, perhaps I just dreamed it. Would be nice.

I just sent out a message asking about this.  Unfortunately, I don't have an Apple product to test this with, but someone is going to look into it tomorrow for me.
