One of the main features that keeps my tied into the Apple ecosystem is AirPlay – the ability to stream your content to your Apple TV or AirPort Express, wirelessly. So when CyanogenMod developer Koushik Dutta released AllCast for Android, I was very interested.
Update: Google released an iOS app that lets you set up and manage your Chromecast.
It may look like Apple TV has finally got its worthy opponent. After the disasters with Nexus Q and Google TV, Google finally thinks they’ve hit the spot with Chromecast. Released yesterday, Chromecast is a HDMI dongle that can stream online content directly to your TV, via an Android or even an iOS device (Windows, Mac OS and Chrome OS are supported too).
