"Easy Chromecasting"

Reviewed by / Jun 19, 2014

Control and manage your Chromecast dongle right from your mobile device

Chromecast is the official app of the Google's TV dongle that smartify your TV.

This app allows you to pair your Chromecast with your Android / OS smartphone and tablet and control it right from your touchscreen. The app automatically detects if there's a Chromecast connected to the same WiFi network. Once pairing is done, you can navigate through Chromecast menu as if you had a remote controller.

In addition, you can discover Chromecast compatible apps and download them right from the app. As you may know, the catalogue isn't impressive right now. Check it though, you may find an app you didn't know about.

That's pretty much what Chromecast app has to offer. And it's fair enough.

Neat and polished Google Play-like layout. Smoothness and reliability. Google stuff, you know.

    I bought my chromecast one month after its UK release. I have never had a problem with it. I knew it's WiFi requirements. I knew what it was capable of and I knew what devices it worked on because I used a magical resource called the internet to check before I bought one. I thought it was just common sense to do a little reaserch on any electronic device you might consider purchasing. Please don't

    Rarely works or works for a while and stops. A total waste of money!

    With the new update, now you can mirror anything to your tv. Just enable, and your tv becomes a constant 2nd screen (with sound) no matter what you're doing. It's no longer just for Cromecast made aps. Great job guys.

    It plays images and video but what they don't tell you is that sound goes down after a while. When streaming a movie from an app the movie goes silence out of nowhere and that's not good!!!!
