My device does not offer any type of screen mirroring feature. I have searched high and low for a way to be able to watch content from my device on my tv. I have tried various cast apps, all of which did not offer what i was looing for. This app, however, works flawlessly everytime. There are some ads, however, it DOES NOT interrupt what you are watching. I also love that the app runs in the back ground, which in turn, I can still use my phone and all other apps. I am extremely happy.
Doesn't work for direct streaming from apps like youtube and netflix, you need to directly download the content and then stream directly from your device. Which, if you're using a smartphone uses your device's battery up quickly but i see this as a workaround for the developer to bypass permissions from established service providers. The only streaming app that was linked to this when i opened it was the twitch player.
After swiping sideways to view additional photos from my phone on Kodi, I turned my phone sideways to view a photo locally in landscape and was surprised that my phone was suddenly displaying the first photo in the series instead of the photo that I wanted to see in landscape. Why the jump to the beginning? If I am presenting to a group (which is the point of casting to a larger screen) I would have to be really careful to not accidentally turn my phone sideways otherwise I'd lose my place in the presentation!
This app used to be incredibly reliable. At some point in the last year it simply stopped allowing videos to play on my Chromecast. It will appear to load the video, shows the length, but stays at a black screen. Other casting apps work fine (localcast ftw).
Excessive ads make this app almost unusable. Pop-ups every other minute even if you're in another app. Obnoxious! Remove and use an alternative - there's a quite a few.
When I first found the app, I was stoked. I bought the full version a good while ago now and have plenty of time to use it. It does what is supposed to do much more often than not, but all it does is find a connection and cast. You're not going to make a play list, browse through folders to cast media or listen to the casted media through headphones from your phone while watching on TV, change any voice latency or anything like you can with other free apps out there. Allcast will cast.... For a small donation.
