Photo Cast for Chromecast
By Swishly inc
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The easiest way to enjoy your own pictures on the big screen.
Requires a Chromecast device for your HDMI TV
A REALLY BIG DISPLAY changes everything!
- You will rediscover your pictures like you've never seen them before.
- Sharing pictures with family and friends? no need to pack a crowd around your iPhone, just beam the pictures to your TV for everyone's viewing pleasure!
- Select your pictures manually from your iPhone's albums and beam them to your TV, or start a slideshow and let the good times roll.
- The next version which is due soon will enable custom sideshows which will keep going after you turn off the app.
If your TV is compatible with chromecast, photo cast will work. In other words, all you need is an HDMI port on your TV.
The picture is optimized for your TV's resolution so you will be making the best of your TV. All resolutions are supported
This does just what it says it will do and is very easy to use. I have a very large photo collection with many carefully organized albums.
My only complaint is that it accesses your photo albums in a random order, not alphabetical order, making it hard to find the album you want to view. It would also be nice if the slide show could go below 5 seconds per picture. When you fix this it is a 5 plus. Dusty
Absolute must-have for iOS users with Chromecast
Love the app! Works great on my iPhone 5. Small suggestion to developer: a lot of users take photos on their phone in portrait, which looks horrible on the TV screen because of the bars on the side, I would love to see the black bars on the side turned into a blurred version of the photo being displayed behind it.
Just what I wanted, but slight issue
Good way to view photos on TV. Keeps picture on TV while you search library, which is good for viewers. I have a problem that I have not seen with other chromecast apps. At times It displays photo on TV after I disconnect and it will not reconnect until I turn tv off and then on.
