Still the only cast app that lets me cast live video
While it does crash and so on, it’s still the only app that lets me cast live video at the moment. Just noticed you made a new version just a few minutes ago, so I’m glad to see you’re still working on improving this app. If there’s anything you can do to fix the crashing or stalling it would be much appreciated. I’m sure if it was that easy, you’d do it, so I appreciate what you’ve done to this point.
DO NOT GET
This app is garbage. It lags. It freezes. It boots you off frequently and then you have to start an entire movie over but then because it's so touchy, that's a challenge itself. You would think that when casting a more legit website, it would work even a LITTLE bit better. But no. It just flat out does not work for legit websites. So if you want subpar quality that becomes more frustrating than useful, stick to the pirated websites. If you want absolutely nothing, try real websites! What a joke. Don't waste your money.
Sorting and firestick
An option to sort files by more than just title. Date downloaded. File type. The simple things. And I wish it worked with firestick as well. There is a rocket firestick app, but I don't want separate apps. Other than that it works well for chromecast.
