The Best Chromecast Apps

Around a month ago, Google finally released the Chromecast SDK. What this meant for us is that shiny new Chromecast apps would be coming down the pipe. And pipes they most certainly have come down! Here are some of the best (and most essential) apps for your Chromecast.Allcast, created by Koush—a CynaogenMod Inc. developer and creator of ROM Manager, ClockworkMod Recovery and plenty of other apps—allows you to stream your photos, videos, and music from your Android device directly to Chromecast. The app has a bright and easy to use UI and, in addition to supporting the Chromecast, it also allows you to stream to your Xbox, Apple TV, Roku, or a number of other media receivers. It also very recently gained the ability to stream content from a DLNA server on your network. So you can use your phone to send movies on your desktop to your Chromecast-equipped TV without any extra configuration. Neat.
