Permissions :
- Read phone state : Needed to display advertisement.
- Approximate location : the weather widget has an option to use your current location to get weather data. The permission is needed to access the city you are in to display proper weather data.
- Read calendar events : the calendar widget needs this permission to send your upcoming events to Chromecast. If you do not have a calendar widget set up, the application does not look at your calendar data.
- Google Play billing service : necessary to make in-app donations to remove ads.
- Prevent phone from sleeping : if the phone sleeps while connected to the Chromecast, the connection is interupted. Therefore the application needs to prevent the CPU from going to sleep in order to keep the connection open.

Recent changes:
- Option to choose which calendars to display in the calendar widget
- Option to show a 5 day forecast in the weather widget
- Customize your column layout
- Change widget background opacity
- Option to automatically refresh widgets after a specified interval

Good idea - needs work I like the idea of this app and it does what it does pretty well. I'd like to see more customisation (instead of white boxes) to give it a more personalised feeling. Interested to see this grows.

Nice idea But total fail. Either get a blank white screen or it won't see any of the Chromecasts on my network (other apps see them just fine).
