AllCast's review

    Published: 2014-05-12, by .

    Allcast allows mirroring photos, music and videos on your Android to your TV

    • Cast photos and videos located on your Android seamlessly
    • Media server compatibility
    • User-friendly interface
    • Free version is too restrictive
    • It should load content a little faster

    "Hey, that's you on the TV!"

    AllCast makes easier sharing media located on your Android device to your TV. First, you must have a Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, Xbox 360, Smart TV or any of the compatible devices (see dev's description). Second, both your Android device (where AllCast is installed) and your playback devices must be connected to the same WiFi network. Finally, you can seamlessly cast content to the non-idiot-anymore box.

    AllCast is extremely easy to use: select the type of media you want to share: video, photos or content from a previously set media server. Navigate through folders and tap on the content you want to cast. It will take just a few seconds to load. You can play it as a slideshow, play from SD card or from Dropbox/Google Drive accounts.

    AllCast is set in a user-friendly and intuitive interface. Only two catches worth to mention: it should load content a little faster and free version should be less restrictive: only 1 minute viewing limit on both pictures and video.

    Regardless, one of the best apps to cast content from your Android device to your capable TV or TV dongle.
