ROBLOX Developer App

The app icon of Roblox Developer on iOS.

The Roblox Developer App was a mobile app released on the iOS App Store on September 24, 2014. The app allows you to pair your device to Roblox Studio so you can use it as a testing device when using Server-Client mode.

Roblox had stated in their monthly BLOXcast of September that an Android version would be available when "they nail the iOS version first".

The app has since been removed from the app store for not being functional and confusing new users.[1]

Menu Overview

When you start the app, there is some text at the bottom of the screen which asks the user, "Looking to play Roblox?". There are 2 main buttons to choose from in the app, these buttons are:

  • Connect to Studio - Connects the device to Roblox Studio as a client. You must pair the device in Settings and start a server using Server-Client mode before the device can connect to Studio.
  • Settings - Allows you to choose what stats to display when testing and allows you to pair your device to Roblox Studio using a 4-digit pin given in the Roblox Studio window on your computer. The section below goes into detail of each setting in the menu.
