It has been a couple of weeks since I last shouted happily about an app for the fantastic Chromecast dongle, but that short silence is getting broken thanks to JustCast for Chromecast. Chromecast, in case you are not aware, is the Google dongle that plugs into your TV and can then be used to stream content from compatible devices. Phones, tablets and laptops are all included, and the number of apps supporting Chromecast is steadily growing.
With this app you can send photos, music and video to your TV, and doing so is really easy. The app had no trouble at all finding those three types of content on both my handset's internal memory and a microSD card, bringing them together in a single view. Nor did it have any problems sending whatever I selected over to my TV. It is simple and it just works. Lovely stuff.
So now it is really easy to bore – erm, I mean entertain – friends and family with all the photos and videos you shoot on hols, and to make simple playlists for gatherings of friends that sound better through your TV than your handset.
