It’s not fun having people crowd over your small smartphone screen to view your images or a funny video you have on your phone. I struggled with this for a long time before I discovered the best casting app for iOS and Google Android devices; AllCast. This app allows you to stream media from your smartphone to your TV. Here’s why you should consider getting this fantastic app.
Cast Media to Numerous Devices
AllCast (available for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android) allows you to cast videos, music, and pictures to any set-top device that is connected to your television or your TV itself. You can connect to Apple TV, Roku Boxes, Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Smart TVs like Sony, Samsung and Panasonic, and Xbox among others. There are other ways to accomplish this. For instance, if you have the Roku app, you can easily stream to Roku Box. However, AllCast is more beneficial because it saves you the need to switch from one app to another to stream media. It is a one-size-fits-all solution for all your devices.
Extremely Easy to Use
The best thing about this app is the fact that it doesn’t have a lot of bells and whistles. It has just a few features, clean and straightforward interface, and it is very easy to use. To cast media to any device, all you have to do is click on the ‘cast’ option and choose the platform you want to use. The iOS and Android app is capable of detecting all the gadgets that are compatible with your network. This allows you to know which device you can and cannot cast to.
Stream from Various Sources
This App Store and Google Play app for casting allows you to stream media not only from your phone but also from various sources such as Dropbox, Google Drive, Instagram, and Google+. You can also stream media from different media servers that you have set up.
The only downside of this app is the fact that there is a cap on video casting length and you have to deal with a lot of ads when using the free version. The only way to solve this problem is to get the premium version of AllCast which goes for $4.99 via the in-app purchases. This is something you should consider if you plan to use the casting feature occasionally. It will definitely improve your performance.
In general, the app has excellent performance, and you will not experience problems with crashing or screen freezes since the issue has been dealt with in the recent update.
There are many casting applications for smartphones today. However, you will not find many with the kind of features AllCast has to offer. It might have numerous ads and a cap on video length, but it is totally worth it. I would recommend it to anyone in search of a high-quality and reliable casting application. Get the latest version of this leading app on the App Store or Google Play Store.
