The popular app AllCast — which lets users stream from their phone to Chromecast, Apple TV, Fire TV, Roku and more — is now available for iOS devices. AllCast has been available on Android for quite some time, and has now arrived for iPhone and iPad users as well. While it does carry over some of the features of Apple's AirPlay, it still proves a useful tool for those looking to stream to third-party devices.
Using AllCast, iOS users can stream photos, music (limited support), and video from your mobile device to your TV. AllCast supports Roku, Fire TV, Chromecast, Apple TV, XBOX 360, XBOX One, certain smart TVs, Chrome, and other DLNA devices.
AllCast is available now as a free download. Check out more at allcast.io.

So will this work like the Screen Mirroring on my Galaxy S5 (Wireless Connection straight from the Phone to the TV)? I basically Screen Mirror my phone to Stream the Xfinity, including live TV, to a TV that is in a room without a Cable Jack. (For those who don't know Xfinity and most TV providers block apple TV or chromecast from Broadcasting their App.)
If I buy a Roku then I will have access to my iTunes, PlayStore and Amazon content for streaming? (I think Roku does Amazon Instant natively but the app provides means for the other two if I'm understanding correctly.)
Can you stream movie box to chromcast now? With this app
Been using the beta for months. I'm happy it is now live. Posted via the iMore App for Android

It will not stream my iTunes-purchased video content to the Roku. Sad face.
