Works for the most part.. I did infact purchase the full version so that I could enjoy casting web videos for longer than 10 minutes and to remove irritating ads. But often after 5 - 10 minutes my videos will pause for a few seconds which is extremely irritating. A problem I never had when using Chromecast through the Chrome browser app. But on the other hand it's a whole lot easier to skip through, pause and play content through FireTV and the Firecast app. I hope this will be fixed through updates.

10 Minute Limit for free Uninstalled. Not free with ads and a 10 min limit. My S4 has mirroring built in but not currently supported on fire stick. Oh well.

Works Great! Works fantastic with my Fire TV stick! I was looking for something that could cast individual videos as opposed to screen mirroring. This works perfectly. The only thing that could be changed is that, when I choose casting, it still begins to play on my phone. Not a major issue... I just have to stop it. But it would be nice if I didn't have to. Great app! Thanks!
