Useless when staying in hotel
Want to stream movies from you iPad to the TV in your hotel room? Sorry, but 99% of hotels prevent devices on their guest network, even in the same room, from communicating directly with each other. Which makes sense in many respects, but totally prevents your Chromecast and device from communicating.
Google could get around this by having devices find each other by connecting to a common address on the Internet, but they don't. So they won't. So you can't.
Hey Google. Nice device. It really would be a better device if you could have connect the app and the device in a ad-havoc connection. That way we would not need a wireless network. Just watch videos download to our cell.
How about under backdrop to sync pictures to your other chrome casts that are on the same network
