What's New in Version 1.10.3000
This thing works beautifully. Have had it a month and not a problem at all. This thing even backgrounds off your apps so you can text, search the web, etc. while watching your movie or tv show. I'd give it a 5 star raising if I knew how to stream my google chrome app onto it. I'm sure there's a way I'm just having difficulty doing it. But for those complaining about bugs and problems with iPhone 4's please stop talking. It's not the drive it's your phone. You're still in the Stone Age for gods sake! This things built for speed and multi tasking your phones drive can't even handle. Update already were on iPhone 6 plus here.
You get what you pay for
Chrome cast... Clearly, you get what you pay for. It is seriously glitchy, completely unreliable, and very unstable. I've tried a variety of different networks, in different locations, on different equipment all with same variable results. After I was done trying, I gave to my kids to play with.., they actually gave it back to me within a few hours, laughing. They thought I was playing a prank, giving them a broken toy. If you're truly series about a streaming TV device, just get a Roku or even better, now that Apple TV dropped to $60... Just get the real thing. ATV worked so well for us, we don't even think about it now. ATV works flawlessly. Chrometrash, not so much.
Update ... or it goes in my garage box
I got my Chromecast last year and it still has the same problems even after the update. At first, it worked and it had no problems. The next day, Chromecast took off my audio for the regular TV input and it hasn't worked since. Followed the steps exactly and updated every app that needed to update. Now, it won't connect to my TV (even with the chord that came with the package), even though it shows that I was connected on my wi-fi settings. Please fix this problem, or it will stay as a one star review AND it will go in the trash where it belongs.
