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.
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.
Works quite well but... I don't know if this is a trial version for a limited time, or limited functionality. It appears to play only one photo at a time. I see nothing that allows file selection, a slideshow, or swiping to another photo as shown in the video on the website. Support indicates that any issues are not fixed by the premium version, so I guess I am out of luck. The file navigation is excellent. It does not appear to be a full DLNA server, but there are some limited commands available on the TV using the remote.
Help! Initially, I gave this app a 5 star because it is excellent for playing movie apps and stuff from browser. However, I have fantastic network apps that Allcast will not play to my chrome cast. I have great Wi-Fi, so that is not the problem. When I try to stream a live network, Allcast connects to chrome cast, but only darkness as a result.
