- Didn't find any. Did you?
- It didn't work.
To sync your device and your smart TV
Aside from the umpteen features that the developer of Flipps promises, let me write this review in 1st person rather than the usual kindly neither too extrapunitive, much nor too little intropunitive, quite non-punitive 1st person of plural AppsZoom style. Things is that testing it on a brand new Samsung LED 5500 (hey boss! that's how I spend my wage!) truth is that I wasn't able to work the miracle called "screen mirroring", which is the only real use this app may have.
However, it didn't work, testing it on three different devices. Therefore, even though it was a successful app time before this review, at this precise moment we can't recommend it as we haven't been able to make it run. Regarding the other stuff, this is, channels and so, don't care about it, because if the app can't sync with anything, there's nothing to do.
Let's hope they devs fix this mess up soon and we can say this review is water under the bridge and start an other anew.

Youtube stream never works."An error has occurred" everytime I want to stream from Youtube yet other channels stream without any problems in the same time.
One of the very few apps I've purchased as it seemed to work. Unfortunately it's now split into two apps (one for ordinal videos, the other for other online media). It regularly stops working, usually half way through a video and closes itself, and that's
works good sometimes you have to close the app and try again.
Google emphasised the ease of porting apps to the Google Cast framework, adding: "The Google Cast SDK is simple to integrate because there's no need to write a ff app. Just incorporate the SDK into your existing mobile and web apps to bring your content
Would be great if the ps3 was supported like the I media share app
