We’ve been playing around with Google’s Chromecast a little bit, and the first take has been excellent. You can use it to play all kinds of content: YouTube videos, Netflix and any other Chromecast enabled app, as well as sending “casting” the entire screen to any TV with an HDMI port. Very, cool stuff really. Screencasting is especially cool because it allows the full Android experience on your TV…your Android device basically becomes the remote control touchpad for a 42″ Android Display. Like I said: Very, VERY cool.
We just found out about AllCast, and haven’t had a chance to test it yet. But at this point it seems to have many of the same capabilities as Chromecast…but instead of going to your TV, you mirror to your PC. Casting your Android screen to your PC seems like it would be pretty cool…maybe even more cool than going to a TV, so I can’t wait to give it a test.
But don’t wait for me to get around to doing a full review (and I’m not suggesting that I ever will)…that could take way too much time. And by ‘time’ I mean…well just think of time from glacial perspective. But if you have an Android phone you can give it a try yourself…today!
