Yet another update and still no chromecast support? 5 ★ when you add support.
Would be great if this app was working with hands free setup (doesn't pause on incoming calls like stock android apps do)
Good but where is Chromecast support?!
App worth spreading!
Ted talks are great and easy to find, but Chromecast support would raise this to a whole new level...I'd watch for hours.
It's an amazing app
