Solution or refund please Hello I just bought the Autocast in app upgrade hoping it would enable me to start screen mirroring to my Chromecast with a single button press. However it looks like this is more targeted to starting media, videos etc Are you able to let me know if this is possible? If not are you able to refund? Also, the email address listed seems to be bouncing messages as I tried sending this there first Thanks, -Matt
AutoCast is a unique and fantastic app! I'm a long time and intensive user of AutoCast and other AutoApps (AutoVoice, AutoRemote, AutoNotifications, AutoInput and AutoContacts). I am running these apps on 4 separate devices. They're solid apps supported by a dedicated developer who is very responsive to his community (his app forums demonstrate this). To appreciate these apps, you have to take a little time to learn Tasker. If you want to do amazing things with your android device, believe me, it's worth it. Thank you to the developer for his great work on AutoCast and the other AutoApps!
Eats battery, hard to kill Great app with a lot of potential, but there's no way to kill it. As well, casting can be very resource intensive, and if there isn't a cast device nearby when it runs, it will run forever in the background, unkillable, until your device dies or it connects. If you don't use persistent notifications then there is a good chance the cast won't work. If you do, then you'll need another task to kill the cast when you're done, which may not work. Intense and unkillable, nearly. Management is poor.
Does not find chromecast This app does not find my cheromecast even though all other Chromecast apps do. Its useless if it doesn't even find the chromecast. Please fix. UPDATE: With the newest version it is still not finding my chromecast.
Not finding Chromecast! Useless. Not finding Chromecast, as of Apr. 3, 2016, despite claims by developer that this problem has been fixed. I have an unrooted Galaxy S7 edge. Don't pay until the developer REALLY fixes!
Unfortunately, the IDEA of this app is way better than the execution. I wanted to cast the Wunderground weather forecast to my bedroom TV when I woke up in the morning. I set it up and about once a week, it appears on my TV. Other times, I just get the "AutoCast" loading screen or, most often, nothing at all (even though my phone says it's casting). There's little to no documentation about the actions you can take, nor a clear way to stop casting without waiting for the action to timeout (hope you set a time out while you were testing!!) I'd love for this app to work--it's a great idea!--but it's just not reliable enough to be useful at all.
