Very good The built-in file explorer can't access the sd card so you have to use a different explorer and then click on the file and select Allcast to open it. It connects to my Xbox one perfectly, doesn't freeze, opens lots of different file formats, and basically you can use the phone as a remote while watching. It's the best one of these I have used. Pay the £3 to buy it though otherwise the adverts will drive you crazy. A small price for the service you get
Great app This app is great for casting files from my tablet, phone, or google drive. The only thing that I'd like to see added is a way to view files in list view or maybe the ability to long press on a thumbnail to see the filename. When you've got several episodes of a TV show in a folder, it's kind of hard to figure out which one is next by the thumbnail alone.
It works sometimes. This would be a perfect app if it worked properly. I use this with chromecast and when I attempt to stream videos that I recorded it plays about 5 seconds then stops and it repeats until it eventually force shuts down. But then when I play movies that are downloaded onto my phone they play perfect, sometimes. Other times with movies they start off fine then it force crashes, but once I attempt to play it again it plays just fine. It's OK, if you have the patience.
Just Awesome I needed a way to view my new Chromecast that I purchased with extremely little knowledge of the product. Found out I needed a media player. Did a little research and decided I'd try All cast. After around 3 months of watching any and everything my heart desires I'm leaving this review. There IS NO BETTER PLAYER THAN ALLCAST ! Spend the 5 bucks and enjoy a wonderful experience with ur TV
Best interface/stability Of all the casting apps I've tried, this one has the best interface and is the most stable. I just wish I could set it to automatically connect to my Chromecast like I can with Bubble. It's a bit of a silly step to select it every time since it's the only device I have. The play/pause button frequently doesn't play or pause video.
Fantastic, BUT... Please please please include a simple file browser. My music collection was ripped in the days before genre/artist/album tags were commonplace and all my music is identified by directory name/filename. I would be eternally grateful for a very simple directory browser so I can actually figure out what I'm about to listen to!
