Getting worse and worse
I used to love this app. I have chromecast built into my Toshiba tv, and 2 years ago, after trying multiple apps I discovered this one and it worked great for casting. I bought the full version soon after and it worked great as well for about a year and half. Then about 6 months ago it started crashing here and there but not bad. I could deal with it, nothings perfect. With each update, I keep expecting a fix, but instead it gets worse and worse. Now, on iOS 12.1, newest version of this app, and an iPhone XR, it’s barely usable. If I leave the app even for a second and come back, it crashes every time, and even if I leave it in the forefront, it crashes every 5-10 minutes. It never did that before whatsoever. I could cast and forget about it, not anymore. Im going to see if there is a firmware upgrade for my TV, and if there is and it helps I’ll edit this review. Because the app is doing the same on this phone and my old iPhone 7, it leads me to believe its the app, but I suppose I’ll see soon. I’m gonna go look for a new chromecast app now.....
Your life will change for the better
If you are reading this review looking for an app that will stream video from any website - look no further! For the price of a couple of coffees, you will not be limited to watching browser videos on your small devices. Definitely pay the nominal fee for the premium service. It is totally worth it. Most video sites that provide video content for free have annoying pop-up ads, but with the premium version you can turn off those ads which makes navigating through sites so much easier. Is the app perfect? No of course not, but it's pretty close for it's intended purpose. This app takes casting to your TV beyond the limits of the mainstream casting devices. I am not a fake reviewer. I am an average middle-aged mother of five who is very happy to have found this app a year ago!
I don't normally do this but..
Wow. This just solved so many problems. If you're skimming through reviews skeptically wondering if this is for real, kind of like I was about 10 minutes before I wrote this, you can rest easy. I just tried a few different movie streaming sites and they casted to my TV faster than I was even ready for. In fact, immediately upon opening the app, it overrode my wife's chrome cast netflix show and she got mad at me. Until I casted the new J-Law movie Joy to demonstrate. Then she turned all smiles. This app turns your Chromecast into what you THOUGHT it would be before you bought it and sadly realized your soul belonged to Google. Break free like I did. Watch EVERYTHING. Tell your friends. Then come back here and 5 star the hell out of this app.
Thought it was just "ok" until I realized you could buy an add on to fast forward, pause, rewind for $1.99, now I think it's great! (Without the add on, it still works, but you have to play a video from beginning to end, with no way to control it) The add on makes all the difference in the world & it only cost 2 bucks! I can deal with that! Good job!! :) Also, after reading other reviews, I will ad- Yes, it is a bit of a process to start a video, but it's a very small & easy process. I'm not very tech savvy at all, but even I find this pretty simple. And besides that, what better option do you have to cast videos that don't have a cast button? I don't know of any! I'd say this app works very well, especially for free + a $2 add on!!
Best Video Streaming App Available
I've tried and tested a wide variety of streaming apps over the years and this one is easily the best I've found by far. I used to have to use an HDMI solution to stream my anime/movies to my HDTVs but now I just sync with my Chromecast and I'm set! I use this app almost daily, and the people who are complaining and/or giving it anything less than five stars simply didn't put more than 2-3 minutes' worth of effort to figure out the basics; didn't purchase to ad-free version (it's still very much useable without making any purchase(s)), or are too ignorant with software to do much of anything on their own. I highly recommend this app to anyone who's even remotely interested in video streaming.
Works well, bookmarks could be better
This app works well for me. I see no pop-ups whatsoever. Maybe those who see pop-ups have their player configured differently than mine. The biggest shortcoming IMHO is the bookmarks page, which has almost no features. To bookmark a film, you go to the film's playback page in the browser, then hit the bookmark menu button which takes you to the bookmarks page. There, hit the + sign, clear the text box, type in the name of the film whose page you were just at, and hit your Return key or OK button. To rearrange/sort your bookmarks page you hit "Edit" in upper right of bookmarks window and manually drag a bookmark up or down in the list. Also, there is no ability to categorize bookmarks in any way e.g. by genre, "film", "TV show" etc. Nor can the app automatically alphabetize bookmarks; you can only do this manually by drag and drop. Fix the bookmarker and, for me, this might very well be a 5-star app.
Good Idea........but NOT!
It's a great idea. So what would be the most important thing this app should do? Yes, play the video! It will play it but not all at once. Besides the funky way you have to play it that is through their browser which makes it very slow pulling every page up. I'm ok with that to get to play a video not normally supported. Then having to click all the way at the bottom bar to play which should be bigger but then you wouldn't "accidentally " click the add. Ok I can let that go because I think you could buy those away but when it doesn't actually play the video I gotta put my foot down. Well it plays the video but then it gets choppy and then plays without sound which is even worse than not just playing at all because now they are just playing with "you". I am glad I didn't buy the upgrades I would be super pee o'd. Now my iPad is running funky even after getting rid of it! Junk!!!
1 year later and still AWESOME!
I got this a year ago and have loved it since the beginning. DEFINITELY worth purchasing all content. I haven't found a website yet that could get past the ad blocker, as long as u keep it up to date. The app is very user friendly. It has crashed less than a dozen times after a year of HEAVY usage, however it hasn't crashed a single time in the last 4 months. Has worked with around 95% of video formats I have tried. When one doesn't work a message pops up that it didn't work just agree to send the feedback and they r quick to make it compatible. Overall satisfaction is answered in the first sentence.
This app is seriously so good, I've been using it almost daily for the last few weeks with no bugs whatsoever and I don't know what I'd do without it! Beats me why Google doesn't just let us use ChromeCast from their own app, but if you need to, this thing really does the trick. My only issue with it is that if I leave it open for too long and open it again, it refreshes and I lose the link I was using before, so for TV shows that can lose your place in the series. But that's admittedly probably my fault for not using the bookmarks feature, lol. All in all I am so glad I found this app!! Thank you thank you wonderful devs for this!
I get the feeling that a lot of the 5 star reviews for this app are fake. But my guess is that the 1 star reviews are by idiots who can't make a toaster work. As often occurs, the truth probably lies somewhere in between. This is a fairly functional app that fills a definite need, and does so with a minimum of hassle. But it's not the best thing since sliced bread, and there are drawbacks. The biggest one is the constant focus on monetization. In the basic version, there is a pop-up after each video plays, and without the various features each available for purchase is pretty bare bones. It gets the job done, but doesn't offer much enjoyment. There is a premium version that offers all the features and kills the ads, but at $6.95, seems a little pricey. I'm all for app makers reaping some benefit for their work, and these guys are no exception. But they're a little ham-handed about it and seem to be more focused on the money than the product. I'm sure there are other alternatives to it, and I'll certainly be looking around. If I don't find any, I'll probably bite the bullet and pay for premium. If you think you might be using it very much, plan on doing the same. - J.R.
Worst cast app ever
You have to spend 10-15 mins closing countless pop-ups and ads before this app decides to take you to the correct address. When you do get to where you want to go, everything you try to do on the page you are on, takes you to a pop-up and you have to start all over again in your search, everything you click on takes you to a ad or pop-up this app is complete garbage. Ten minutes later after fighting with ads and pop-ups then you get do something until you have to fight with the app for another ten minute round of ads and pop-ups, this company is garbage they are selling 4 types of ad/pop-up removal in there in app purchases to force people to spend money on something they put into play in the first place. Spend 1.99 on a real cast app that doesn't rip you off like this app, it's complete garbage and so are the devoplers.
Thank you guys so much!
If you are like the rest of us trying to break free from the limitations of the regular chromecast streaming apps then this is for you. It takes some getting use to but once you figure out how the URL linking works and you get your bookmarks in order, you are golden. This app lets you stream ANY video on the internet straight to your chromecast as long as it has a valid link. I would highly recommend buying the advanced features for $5 or so dollars. Some of you may complain about having to pay anything but these developers have clearly worked hard on making this application work so support them.
Great casting app
Best casting app. Unlike others you don’t have bunch of pop up adds or have to reset multiple times. I give it 5 stars if it didn’t time out or when closed reset to home screen. Sometimes life happens and you have to close app or pause for extended time. It bit annoying to have to reload video and fast forward to where you left off. I bought the premium version after using for while for the options and to support developer for a great app. Update:app has went downhill. It pause and you have to mess with it to get it to restart. Then if you run app in background it will just stop playing. You have to close it and restart video again. Hopefully next update will correct this or I will have to find another casting app that works properly.
Great App but Greedy Owners
The App works great, I get to play any video off their web browser no problem but the catch is that you have to pay for things like subtitles for instance which I believe right from the start should be free due to the fact that they’re are people out there who are hearing impaired. Why should they pay more money than the average person because of their disability? It’s crazy to think in the time we’re in that we have to deal with such greed, like the fact that you have to pay just for the play bar so that you could, oh Idk, maybe rewind and fast forward the video you’re watching? It’s ridiculous. I would give it a one if it wasn’t for the fact that other cast apps out there don’t work as well. But other than that it’s sad 👎
Cast everything to your chromecast!
This app is everything I’d wanted when I’d first gotten my Chromecast! I was bummed that only certain apps were compatible while using an iPhone. There’s so many other browsers’ videos and phone videos I wanted to see on the big screen! With this app, that’s now possible! I’m so happy I can stream my dramas that aren’t on Netflix onto my TV! For anyone that’s hesitating if this app actually works, believe me, it does. I even went ahead and purchased the premium bundle to have the entire experience available to me. Worth the money! Good job to all of the hard workers on this app! Much appreciated!
