Took a while to set up my new Chromecast and then I could not find anything to cast my photos on to my phone. Installed Cast-it but images elongated sideways on TV. Turned phone sideways and now everything displays as it should. Have to give it 5 stars because it's the only app that I've got to do still photos! Happy chappy!
Seems great but cant find star icon On my updated dropboxs there is no star icon for me to press. The pictures that are shown are not the same as in my dropbox app. Those pictures used to be the case until I updated drop box. Anyone else have this problem?
Choppy Cool idea, but not very smooth. Constantly has that little spinning circle thing letting you know it's thinking about showing you the next picture. No need to always have that show. Plus, sometimes you only get a glimpse of a pic before it goes on to the next. Keep trying....
Almost good Pretty simple to use, but the app doesn't auto resize the image correctly. It stretched the images to fit the entire screen, height and width, out of proportion.
Moto X I am really sick of beta testing software on the Play store. This app sort of works, but shows the loading "flower" over the images the whole time. Then it locks up.
Excellent image caster By far THIS is the best :-) It's FAST, with no lag between picking an image on my phone, and casting to TV (other apps have lag). Also has slide-show functionality. SWIPE, to view next image, is also great, where other apps unable to "swipe" to view. Only downside I have found.. There doesn't APPEAR to be a way to start a slide-show from "here" :-(. If one chooses "slide-show" then it will simply play from your very first image. **UPDATE**. So, I mailed the devs, as a suggestion about the slide show. Now, I'm sure it wasn't ONLY me that asked, but within a couple of days they had released an update, which allows a slide-show to be started from where YOU want it to, and not from the start of your whole album. BIG Thumbs Up to the dev's , for their responsiveness. Well done guys. +1 Although Dropbox images are now "Castable", a little more development would help :-( 1) Unable to cast direct from Dropbox, (where as others apps can) , 2) One has to download ('favourite') each image from Dropbox, which you wish to Cast later. 3) Casting DP images TOOOO slow :-(
