    Trying to actually scroll through your files is a nightmare that nearly forces you to buy the pro version... My patience led me to pulling the trigger, then when you try to cast it flags all sorts of errors saying "This file type doesn't work." and gives you a poop emoji. Tried seemingly every file type I am aware of and shebang. Nothing but errors and poop emojis. I wasted 6 bucks on this app and still can't stream my Google Drive stuff to my Chromecast. Totally bummed.

    I love that I can finally play media straight from my phone to my tv, this is a great app for this. Only problem I have is that when I play music album it plays one song at a time, it doesn't play the next song automatically, tried everything. If this gets fixed, I would buy the app.

    I purchased app and it worked fine for a few mp4 vids. It seems to haven't all sorts of problems casting to TV these days: Google Drive, Google Photos, etc. It's been over a month since I purchased it, I wish I could get a refund. All I seem to get now is error messages, saying that this video can't be streamed/loaded....even though I played it fine in the past. Can you, the developers, please fix or direct me to an app that can do the job. I apologize for the sharpness in tone.

    When streaming music from Google drive, the song plays simultaneously on phone and casting device, also not always. But nothing you can do, you also cannot change your phone audio while casting, so it's Impossible to mute my phone while casting (this is all to my xbox) Also cannot add songs to a queue or playlist. Sure you can add songs, they simply don't play. You have to manually go and select the next song. I'm kinda sorry I paid for this app now as this was the primary reason I bought it :(

    it works great for cloud to Roku tv casting, like Google drive to Roku, get some lag, but I think that is my Internet. You should market it for this use, this is by far the best app I have found for this purpose.

    it was an okay app before it got ruined. it will literally bombard you with 30s ads whenever you try to do something, anything really. even though I'd always thought the ui has a bit of a room for improvement with the whole "queue" system, I thought it still was a decent app that gets the job done. but now, greatly dissapointed and am deleting it.

  7. Mark Fertig-avatar

    Worst experience with an app on Android I've ever had. I installed this because I read that it would cast media to a Roku or other device and allow the audio to play locally on the smart phone. I have no idea if that is possible, since the APP DOESN'T DO ANYTHING BUT SHOW ADS. Ads and popups everywhere. Couldn't play media locally. Couldn't cast to the Roku. Just showed more and more ads the more I tried to use it. Honestly, 1 star is way overrated. This garbage should be pulled from the Play store as it is complete malware.

    Fantastic at showing commercials, comercials in the way everywhere and heck, lets through in some popups to make it a truly horroble experience. Beyond that it was slow, awckward to use and I never actually got it to work. I would suggest getting some coders to do something other than commercials. Those were the only thing that 'worked'.

  9. Dor Mizrahi-avatar

    Edit: No RTL subtitle support. Works okay with some caveats, playing a few links through the queue gets interrupted sometimes, requiring the current link to be selected again and skipping to the correct timestamp. There's also a fade in/out when content changes with no way to turn it off, this is a pain for short 5-10 sec clips, and sub-3 sec clips can't be looped, playback stops instead. I'd love some sort of in-memory cache on the casting device for looped content to remain high quality too.

    This aps seems to go from reasonable to poor. It has so many bugs now that its use is limited. Very sad. You call for one image, you get the file name you selected, but the wrong image is displayed. You select continuous loop, it stops after the last image and needs a forward to start again. Updates solve one problem and create another. And the lay-out is still from an era long gone. Rudimentary.
