Smart Cast - Stream Webvideos to Chromecast is an app to send multimedia content to your Chromecast. Whether web contents or data stored on your iPhone, you can use this simple application to play everything via streaming. The app is so simple that it has one big drawback. And that's that when it comes to playing local data, you can only play contents stored in your iPhone's camera roll, so you'll only be able to view photos and views from that location.
At least it offers some extras compared to similar apps, as it includes a browser to watch on your TV web contents via streaming. Furthermore, this browser has a built-in pop-up blocker, to get rid of those annoying windows that are so common in webs of series and movies.
Broadcast any web video, photo or local video to your Chromecast device.
How does it work?
Its functioning is very simple. Open the app, tap the Chromecast icon in the upper right corner, find and connect your device. Remember that you must be connected to the same WiFi network. Having done that, choose what you want to play by pressing the icon in the upper left corner, whether contents from your browser or your iPhone's camera roll.
From the browser, you can add your favorites and enable or disable the pop-up blocker, as well as changing the home page through the configuration icon found in this same menu. As an alternative, if you can't stand all the adverts shown in the application, you can purchase the premium version by paying a small amount of money.
