"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.

    Cast supported apps work great, so did screen mirroring until. I updated to 5.1. Can't seem to find anywhere to report Issue.

    Works great, however...we get some interference in our tv when we are watching broadcast on antenna. Sometimes, we have to unplug chromecast to watch regular tv.
