Photowall for Chromecast
By Google, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Photowall for Chromecast is a new Chrome Experiment that lets people collaborate with images on the TV - using phones or tablets. Anyone can take a picture and send it to a Photowall to instantly see it on the big screen.
When you’re finished, a YouTube video of your Photowall is automatically generated. Perfect for sharing with everyone who took part.
What's New in Version 1.1
We addressed some UI issues in the app.
This app is only intended to start a new Photowall. To add photos to a preexisting Photowall, just go to http://g.co/photowall in your mobile browser!
Great idea, terrible implementation
The photowall app simply redirects you to photowall on the web, then makes you upload ONE PHOTO AT A TIME! What the what? Then after 5-10 seconds waiting for the photo to upload, requires you to edit or choose not to edit. If you choose to add a caption, it places in LARGE CAPITAL LETTERS across the middle of the pic you want to view... it's not a caption, it's an opaque watermark. If you want to display more than a couple pictures this app is probably not for you. For me, when I want to display pics on a 70" big screen via chromecast, it's to display more than one or two pics. Sorry, I truly do not get the usecase of this app. Add the ability to upload several pictures at a time without having to edit them (or look at an edit decision interstitial page) and you might have a winner.
It works... If you figure it out.
I too was disappointed by the black screen of death. Inspiration struck and I downloaded Chrome browser from the AppStore. Success! Now all I need is a tripod for my photo booth. If your friends want in on the action, they will need Chrome and a google account. Maybe I missed that you need these two things in the description...
Huge potential; looks and sounds cool and then well you try to use it. Black screens, oh snap messages... Welcome to something not even worthy of beta status... Great idea and then wasted execution of it... If on the off chance you get it to work it pretty cool but who has hours to play around and trudge through the random Oh Snap an error occurred messages where you can't post something but your identical other phone can and then wait the reverse happens... Oh Snap we created a really stupid app we are sorry to have freaking wasted your time and our brand on it; is what it should read....
