Brilliant Chromecast is pretty useless without this app, can't rate it highly enough.

Not bad I use localcast for streaming content from apps where Chromecast is not available. It works great for this purpose and has been pretty reliable so far.

Connect issue Thanks for fixing the problem, I'm taking my 1 star rating and upping it to 4, if you could do 4 and half that's what I would give it.I can't rate it 5 because its not an easy self explanatory app.

Great overall I only use it for videos and in that aspect it works like it should. The only issue I have is trying to route the audio to my device. The audio cuts in and out, or doesn't come through at all
