Chromecast is the iOS app for Google's newest device, the Chromecast streaming video receiver. The app works in tandem with the device, which plugs into any HDMI port on a TV. The result is that your iPhone or iPad can subsequently stream video to your TV. While there are more options with the desktop or laptop version of the app, it is very cool to be able to send video directly from your mobile device to your TV.

Once the installation process for your Chromecast device is complete, you can use any device with the app installed on it to send video to Chromecast. An icon will appear in apps like Netflix and YouTube. When you tap that icon, it will transmit what you are viewing to your television so it can be watched there. The process is seamless once set up and both the audio and video quality are comparable to having a dedicated device for streaming those programs to your television. Most importantly, the app is very intuitive, allowing you to easily add new devices, switch between them anywhere in your house, and stream quickly to your TV with the tap of a button.

If you are considering getting a Chromecast device and plan on using your iPhone or iPad for transmitting data to it wirelessly, the Chromecast app is a perfect companion. It's easy to set up, responsive when opened, and integrates with the apps it supports effectively, providing a free streaming solution for anyone who already owns the device it supports.
