Best out there. I have many of the paid full version cast apks. Always end up using this one, it just works better. Using HTC M8 on sprint. For some reason it works way better than the chromecast app itself for doing what the app is capable of.

Think this is still the best casting app Needs a file refresh button, does not realize filenames change or videos being deleted...

Only casts the first picture from my nexus 5. It casts the first picture but then seems to load and shoe the same picture as I click through my gallery.

TRY FREE VERSION FIRST I use Local Cast now. The UI for this and Avia just sucks. Pictures don't change. Swiping through them they stay the same picture.
