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!
The app never found any of my Chromecast As other users already mentioned, the app will simply not work in most of the cases. Tried several times in my home network - 2 Chromecasts gen 2, 2 Chromecast audio, 1 Chromecast gen 1. Autocast can't find any of the 5 Chromecast above, although all the devices are on the same network. Other Autoapps do their job amazingly well. Autocast, unfortunately, is just a waste of time and money.
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.
I wanted to like this app, tried for hours Was only able to find a Chromecast twice. I have 5 Chromecast devices on my network and AutoCast was only able to find two but only on two separate occasions. Only one of the devices showed up each time. Super frustrating. Many of the help pages don't work and show up as a 404 error. Seems like this app might be abandoned by the dev. Was never actually able to connect, even the connect to first available device never worked, just a useless battery killer
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.
