Allcast Universal Streaming App

The cord cutting revolution is leading to more households installing one of the many popular media streaming boxes to view and listen to content on demand.

Some of the major players in this growing segment of the tech industry include Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, Amazon Fire TV and even Microsoft’s gaming Xbox gaming console.

If you own an Android phone and a Chromecast, you can push whatever’s on your phone onto your TV.

The same holds true if you have an Apple TV and an iPhone, but what happens if you or your friends have a mix of both?

That’s where an app called AllCast comes in handy.

Allcast connects your iPhone or Android smartphone to just about any of the popular streaming boxes or smart TVs so you are no longer limited to devices from the same company.

There’s a free version of the app that allows you to get a sense of how it works, but you’re limited to 5 minutes of viewing time. If you feel like it’s worth using, pay $5 for the pro version which removes the limitation.

Sound interesting? Check out AllCast in either the Google Play Store or Apple App Store.
