HORRIBLE RECENT UPDATE
8/5/16 UPDATE: this product was barely usable before but now with the new update makes this experience beyond painful. It requires several more clicks to do anything now you can't cast from one tab to the next now. You have to stop Casting one tab then wait to then cast another tab. Plus u have to now exit fullscreen in order to click and see ur chrome cast options, which u didnt have to do before. Plus u dont habe the options now like u did before. Just a whole lot more clicking and maneuvering to do the same things you did with half the effort before the update. So once again I ask these developers what are you people thinking when you do updates. The point of an update is to make something better not more complicated not more cumbersome it's supposed to be streamlined not digress to several steps backwards.
Great alternative to cable. I have two complaints or suggestions. The cast entire screen option runs on a lag and the picture jumps constantly when trying to watch AVI. videos. Would like to watch these great quality videos how they're meant to be seen without the lag and choppiness.
Secondly the backdrop feature is great to show my pictures on a large screen but the biggest complaint I get is that it shows the picture too long. WAY too long. There should be some sort of timer option like every 10sec, 20sec, 30sec and so on. 2-3 mins per picture for over 3000 pictures is not good.
Very good app, nice abilities
I don't have the full Chromecast with video, but Chromecast Audio, and this app makes it easy to setup, also easy to see what's playing at any given moment. Love how it automatically integrates all music apps on my phone that are cast-enabled, puts them in one place and frankly, running those services out of this app makes them each more reliable as a result. It does take app a little while sometimes to recognize my Chromecast Audio device, however. All around, much better than I would have hoped. So much better than, say, what Philips came out with in their awful Hue app!
Not really for Apple 😞😞
I purchased this device thinking I could stream all of my music to my stereo system in my house...... So does not work at all with any of the Apple apps I have for music..... Works great with google apps, and if you are willing to pay a monthly fee, works with "some" other streaming music sources...... Sad, sad day..... One of these days I wish we could create a device that " plays well with others" and eliminate the greed factor of having to pay more through subscriptions to get an device to do what it should do right out of the box..... It should say on the packaging..... This app device will work on your iPad, but you need to use a google friendly app to make it work........
