Google Play Reviews

  1. carl4469-avatar

    It works fine if you have a strong bladder and no one comes to your door. If you pause the video it plays again for a short time and crashes. Then to wind you up more an advert will play when going back to find the video. Then to wind you up even more when you skip forward to where you left off it gives you a dog poo sign and crashes. So get your potty ready and draw your curtains. This happens on all my devices for as many years as I had it. I need it though for subtitles. It's just so glitchy.

  2. Cra2y Joker-avatar

    1. Thé previous video shortcut on notification bar doesn't work. 2. It doesn't continue playing next video in the queue. (Have to manual next) 3. uncancellable annoying Ads interrupts too much while trying to do play/add (I won't mind watching ads after I cast video ) 4. Subtitles don't seems to work.. Drain lots of memory, can't continue next in queue after end, too many ads uncancellable in the middle of using app.

  3. Lior Wiseman-avatar

    Was working great but now ads are popping after every click of a button and they halt the entire experience for 3 seconds every time. Really ruining the user experience. I dont mind ads but the amount and waiting period for each one is painful

  4. calvin doyle-avatar

    Fantastic casting app. Has incredible functionality, especially with the pro version. I can search my whole phone, add videos to the queue and cast to my Xbox with 0 issues. This combined with MovieBoxPro makes my show/movie watching seamless and easy

  5. Donnie Schnapp-avatar

    This used to be my favorite go to app for streaming from my Android to my Roku stick but for the last few weeks it just keeps freezing and I have to restart my movie over and over again so not sure what the issue is, any help would be greatly appreciated!!

    In the beginning when I started using this app it was working fine but for the past 2 years I'm having really bad experiences. 1st it does not play from the last point, 2nd it freezes when I forward or testing.

  7. Kushagra Arora-avatar

    The video is highly distorted in my fire TV. Also, it does not open the videos unless you precede them by opening images. It is a great idea, but there seem to be a lot of bugs.

    Over all good. 1. I am not able to buy the pro version google iss not supporting my usually card which i use for other purchase on play store for this purchase. 2. Audio route has hell lot of problem most of the time it does not route audio to mobile device for which i have downloaded this device.

  9. Todd Stites-avatar

    App does nothing. Lot of useless 'features' that don't seem to do anything. All I wanted to do was play YouTube on chromecast and hear it on my phone. Won't even play. Useless app. If I could rate zero, I would.

  10. CLIVE BATEMAN-avatar

    STILL NOT WORKING AT ALL...SOMETHING'S WRONG,IT"GOES THROUGH THE MOTIONS"AS IF IT WERE PLAYING NORMALLY,BUT THEN SAYS"NOTHING PLAYING"! THE MOVIES PLAY ON MY MOBILE PERFECT, BUT WON'T STREAM TO MY XBOX1 / LG TV?..IT SEAMLESSLY USED TO? I WILL TEXTBACK IMMEDIATELY IF WHEN/IT'S FIXED?LOVE YOUR APP. HOPE IT CONTINUES AS IT SEAMLESSLY DID... THE ONLY REASON I STILL SHOW FULL-STARS IS I KNOW YOU DO YOUR UTMOST FOR YOUR CROISSANT LOVERS?

  11. Eric Livesay-avatar

    Can't figure out how to get it to work with YouTube, Netflix, or any other streaming service. Only local videos. The ads make the free version unusable. And it's a subscription to use the premium version. Nothing but greed. Uninstalling.

  12. Tamekia Swoope-avatar

    Best casting app out by far changing my stars cause this was one of the best casting apps out now its s*** dont cast anymore does nothing i had this app for over three or four years work really good now the updates killed it literally and mind you it was five stars now just one so disappointed.

  13. K s-avatar

    Cast yt vid. phone screen disabled kept saying unlock but disappeared then reappeared constantly before being able to do anything. Had to restart phone and close app.

  14. erica-avatar

    Works all the time to mirror stuff from my android to my smart tv (unlike iphone that u cant watch anything thats free or on a memory card), unlike the PlayTo app! PlayTo just Stopped working out of nowhere!

  15. DINGAAN THATHO-avatar

    Most intrusive app I've ever used the ads pop up every time you push anything most of the time interrupting the connection to chromecast. You watch ads longer than you watch what intended

  16. Wail Omer-avatar

    There is a problem with the subtitles, all the time can't be found by online search and can't see the .srt file in the folder

  17. A80 2JZ-avatar

    Totally unusable with the amount of ads on the free version. Can't even test to see if I would like the paid version.

    It's broken, it used to work fine, i am using Samsung tv..... Earlier casting was smooth but now, it works for 4-5 seconds then it crashes....

  19. Sarah Morgan-avatar

    Why are there so many great ratings on this app? It barely works. It will play about 15 minutes of a movie and then stop all of a sudden. When I look at my phone, it's playing an ad which is fine but I can't restart the stream after the ad! I have to force close the app and it still only sometimes works. It also has a tendency to get into an ad loop where I'm seeing 6+ ads in a row. That's too much, but I might put up with it if the app actually worked consistently.

  20. babak goudarzi-avatar

    Now the latest update has fixed "AD central" problem for now. Now I gave it 5 star. Helen using this ap for several years now..

    Excellent UI, does its job well. I'm using for music-casting & as the ads aren't intra-music, they're reasonably inobtrusive

  22. Rogério Neves-avatar

    Used to work well, now only shows ads continuously. Unusable. Uninstalling. Update: adbomb bug persists.

  23. Kelly Higgins-avatar

    Bloody awful app, if I could use another cast app I would. Stupid continuous ads & it always vibrates when I'm trying to select cast to my tv

  24. William Friend-avatar

    nothing but ads whenever i tried to cast to my apple tv. less ads would be good. more ads = more $$$ for the developer.

  25. Didier Ouzaid-avatar

    Been a pro version client for some time, this used to be my go-to app to stream to my smart TV, and it still is to some extent but for weeks it's been so inconsistent that I find myself using a hard drive hooked up to the TV instead. It often takes 5 or 6 refreshes, or restarting the app multiple times for my TV to be found by the app on the network (when it used to be straight up), and when I pause streams it often disconnects upon trying to restart it. Hope it gets fixed soon somehow.

  26. Gokul Asoken-avatar

    Everything in this app is fine. The major problem is we cannot change the audio if multiple audio is present in single video file. And also some video formats are not supported. If these are fixed then this will be the best casting app ever made. Please fix these. After that i will change the rating to 5. p.s. this low rating is to get your attention on this comment. Thank you.

  27. Ken H-avatar

    Nice app, good interface. Works well from the device storage or installed SD card... But... app won't read from my USB SSD T5 device. Error: "Something went wrong, try again later". This happens on all three of my Android devices. All videos can be seen and played locally but not cast. It does recognise the SSD Drive, but does not read.

  28. Taha Berjawi-avatar

    Most of vids i try to stream are not supported by the app. Bought the pro version, no improvement

  29. Laughing Man-avatar

    Last update has too many ads. Every 2nd or 3rd touch in the app loads a full page ad you cant skip.So sad

  30. Barry Roach-avatar

    I can actually control my DLNA devices. Since I have Google, Amazon, Roku and a couple proprietary devices. I can take my video file from my Bell Smart hub (Bell Canada) and cast it to my Sharp (Hisense) TV, Fire Stick, Roku etc. It pickups up all the Renderers and Servers I have. Very impressive so far. I cannot see where the free version of the app is hobbled in any way.

    Doesn't work. How can I even consider spending any money on this if it won't even work. "Free pro trial"? But I'll tell you what does work, the ads. Will look for something better. Play store really needs an option for no star rating.

  32. Maxim Pilyugin-avatar

    Stopped working after update, Sony tvs don't play video anymore. Though I paid for the app.

  33. Peter Sunga-avatar

    No longer works for most filetypes it used to support. I've started using VLC instead.

  34. Remko 57-avatar

    The ap is functional but not flash at all. The developer could seriously improve the look and feel, right down to the font sizes and better (contrasting) colours. But, unlike most aps, it allows casting from my home network NAS, which is a great plus and the reason I am using it. The ads in the unpaid version are annoying. Being able to search by tag would also be a very useful addition.

    Right after opening the app, Huawei login starts spamming and cannot be closed.

  36. Hue-avatar

    Update now requires an app in to be downloaded onto streaming device (roku) and picutres are not supported. So image presentations are out. For the time anyway. . .revisted this app. 1 month later Was loyal to it. Presentations 9/10 times worked great. Best casting presentation I have found. New update still didn't allow pictures. Welp localcast you get 2 more tries then I'm done. What a waste of what was a great app.

  37. Robert Goad-avatar

    I've tried so many times to get app to work when I'm streaming Netflix from my phone to my tv with my earbuds. IT DOESN'T WORK. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME. I'd even pay the $0.99 a month if it did work. It might work if what you're wanting to watch is already on your phone, but streaming service doesn't work. This is the 2nd time I've downloaded the app & tried streaming to Chromecast & then I tried streaming to Firestick.

  38. N Q-avatar

    Worked for a little while and bought premium but when watching mp4 streams it will play a video then the next one won't work for some reason. Happens all the time which makes it almost unusable for me. I really wanted to like it because I think it's interface is clean but just doesn't work.

  39. Mike Payne-avatar

    works but riddled with ads. can't do anything without an advert interrupting

  40. Simon Stoakley-avatar

    This would be 4/5 stars but the latest update has added an ridiculous amount of ads, every time you do the slightest thing you get an ad, even waking your screen. Will be looking for an alternative. Shame. Edit: use BubbleUPnP instead, more functionality, less ads

  41. E N-avatar

    Ads are only mildly annoying. App works well as stated.

  42. Micque Smart-avatar

    I like the fact that you can send shows to yout television even thought you dknt have to download whatever you're casting.It only has one problem,I dont know if my television is the problem but when i cast a movie,the show has a deep black shade to it and it shows in low quality.

  43. Gareb Bowen-avatar

    Ugh. Can't even trial it the ads are that thick and fast. Awful experience.

  44. Robbie Harmon-avatar

    Gotta pay to get rid of ads but it's cheap. Easy to use

  45. Horacio J-avatar

    OMG. What have you done? There weren't enough ads already? And you call "add even more ads" a "bug fix" (what the release notes said)? Also :"Subtitles in the same folder are added automatically." No, they aren't.

  46. James Cook-avatar

    Good app but the number of ads, and the length, are atrocious! To watch one video I have to sit through the same ad 3 times, with no option to skip even after 5- seconds. 35 seconds each time! Unacceptable, I don't care that it's free. Uninstalling.

  47. David Jones-avatar

    Please bring back the option of resuming videos where they left off, please. Best app out there by my standard. 👍

  48. Tom Fulcher-avatar

    Doesn't work at all and just hangs the roku or does nothing..

    Have been using this app for years with no issues. Recently it has become unusable due to constant ads, sometimes 4 or 5 in a row that are unskippable. It's worse than pop up ads on a shady website.

  50. Steve G-avatar

    No screen mirror function. Notification bar stays on after quitting app.

  51. Cyrill Sy-avatar

    SMB v1 incompatible? I keep getting "this client is not compatible with server" and "unknown host" errors when trying to set up an smb v1 server. FYI tried connecting to a different shared folder on my PC and it works ok. Edit: Changed to 1 star in hopes of getting a reply.

  52. bob-avatar

    awesome. does what I want it to, like the way I can resize subtitles. wish it would work with all video files, I know that is more to do with Chromecast but still don't understand why

  53. Shubham Ahuja-avatar

    BEST CHROMECAST APP EVER! Bluetooth Headphone/Route Audio feature works great but pausing the chromecast video doesn't pause the audio on Bluetooth headphones. I know it's in beta but a minor feedback I thought of sharing. :) Incredible work btw.

  54. Zero-avatar

    I love this app. Been using it chrome cast to my Xbox and watch videos. I don't like when apps interrupt what I'm doing so y'all lost a star. Also I can't 100% chrome-cast like open games or app and use this app to chrome cast but Xbox's don't support that anyways so. Not y'all fault.

  55. Piyush Jain-avatar

    .mkv videos not working.You can hear the audio but tv screen is totally blank

  56. PG's Tips-avatar

    This is quite simply the best casting app available. I use it for casting to Roku and Chromecast and the ability to add and change the appearance of subtitles makes this app without doubt the best available. A well deserved 5 🌟Star⭐ rating. 5 Stars. Well Worth paying for BTW 👍

  57. tyler lane-avatar

    Few small things that could be fixed to make a more user friendly app. Like when connecting to my Roku TV, app says, "no device connected", even tho its already casting what im watching to TCL Roku TV. Amazing features.

  58. Bas Taik-avatar

    Reopens regualarly in the background to download ads which causes battery drainage.

  59. J-P Spore-avatar

    One of the best A/V apps out there. I've used it for years. It sometimes has issues, but they ALWAYS get fixed. We love the optional Dropbox integration.

  60. Rahul Chonkria-avatar

    Amazing app, I cast a lot of local content and this app is by far the best in the market. But, my only is that subtitles dont work. I've tried local subtitles and opensubtitles, both dont work.

  61. Johan Scholten-avatar

    good program to cast to tv or to chromecast. I used it on a chromebook quite a bit, not flawless there but better than alternatives. chrome os seems to be making changes though, which stopped it and others like it from working, works fine from mobile still.

    This used to work really well... until I upgraded to android 10 on my Note 10 plus back in December. I've had to use cinema which is nowhere near as stable nor reliable as this used to be.

  63. Ashley Smith-avatar

    This used to be a great app but a few months ago (when even more adverts were inserted) it starts playing up with sometimes multiple crashes an hour with casting. I understand the need to monetise but not at the expense of crashes.

  64. Halie Allen-avatar

    Freaking amazing!!!! No cords needed. Absolutely LOVE this app! Stream your phones files like pics and videos and more or play movies and shows through other apps or downloads!! Friend of mine showed me and am forever in his debt 😁😁💕💕

  65. Ken Chung-avatar

    Good but the ads are long and sometimes non stop one after the other which gets very frustrating. I understand the need for ads but this must be a bug in the recent update

    Plz add language change option in cast movies......it is play only first language of dubbed movie....

  67. Mark A-avatar

    obtrusive ads that pop up constantly. the app itself works well most of the time. I dont mind ads but this is ridiculous. Very buggy anf privacy a concern even with optouts.

  68. Lord Gamer 007-avatar

    Using this frequently since a long while, works really well the only thing I wish it could do is force subtitles since my tv does support it but the app says that it doesn't. Overall a good app +1

  69. Wayne Isted-avatar

    this app was working. and used this app for few years. however wont connected to my tv. is there any is this a temporary glitch or has service gone now . id be happy to pay for it when works . .

  70. Brian Kinnerk-avatar

    So tired of uninstalling this after it randomly stops recognising my xbox. Just reinstalled and still wont find it. App sucks.

  71. Nadeem Akhtar-avatar

    Paid for pro but now it just shows ads every time I use it. Sometimes 5 ads in a row. Emailed the developer but got no response.

  72. S B S Sai Ram-avatar

    Excellent app to cast videos in smart TV. Reliable. Never crashed. A good app to cast your content. Use it for entertainment purposes only. Don't use it to cast your office works.

  73. Rattlingsea-avatar

    I dont know how but when i was putting a subtitles on because im deaf my dad signed me that the sound dissapeared it doesnt bother me but he wants to know how to fix it and it keeps going to normal tv.

  74. Jigar Chheda-avatar

    Everything works fine except. 1) Auto Stops, you need to restart again. 2) Some search related issue, taking time to search casting device.

    I had purchased the pro version of the app a couple of years back.. in between I had shifted to iphone and now back to android and tried restoring my favourite app but realised that the pro is gone and I'll need to buy the pro version again. Why is that? Can you please restore my previous purchase of pro version.

    Application shows the TV is connected but while playing any file it's shows not connected and nothing playing. When we go to connect it show device is connected. Very worst app

  79. Tom Richey-avatar

    Godsend for being able to cast from Google drive. Sometimes needs a few attempts before it works, but super useful when it does.

  80. Denis Ivanov-avatar

    Excellent app. 4 stars just because there is always place for improvement. But it is definitely one of the best apps I've ever used.

  81. Steve Murphy-avatar

    Kind of works but really clunky. Interface is really badly designed and whole thing feels very amateurish. Noisy adverts are really intrusive.

  82. Jonathan Smith-avatar

    I've used this app for years on almost every Android device I've owned and it's always worked flawlessly. Please consider donating to help the dev keep up with Android version changes!

  83. SMN NJR-avatar

    Works better than allcast or lime play. But I believe it's just a trial. I keep seeing that message. Too bad.

  84. matthew nanos-avatar

    Why can't I fast forward rewind or pause and also I've just became a pro user.

  87. Mana Tuhoro-avatar

    I don't know much about casting but this seems to work pretty easily. Up date does so much more. Just when you think it couldn't get any better it did love love

  88. Dave Nexus-avatar

    User support is outstanding. Guy is trying to make a living and doing it well. Great app Bern using it since it came out many years ago.

    I've used LocalCast for four years now for streaming with Chromecast and it's excellent, always offers a seamless, clean stream.

  90. Jason Alvarado-avatar

    It worked, bur you Cant fast forward through a streaming movie to get where you left off. 30 secs at a time is painful.

  97. Robert G-avatar

    Junk app. To much buffering and lags when searching for devices and connecting.

  98. deepak kumar-avatar

    Unay to hear the audio in headphones during casting. How to mirror the video in tv and audio in mobile headphones in night times especially.

  99. Garry Fry-avatar

    And the updates just keep on coming with no improvement. Used to be the best. Now close to useless.

  100. Google User-avatar

    I miss when this app worked. Use allcast folks. Much better. Movies actually play, start and don't buffer. This app has gone straight to hell.
