Ratings and Reviews
Great app, thanks
One of the best app to cast web video to Chromecast. It is not user friendly but once I figure how it work. It works well.
Special unique Features that I tried and worked:
1. Mkv videos, which I don’t think there is another casting app out there that could do that. Well done! Thanks developer.
2. Ability to save video file from web. Again, hard to find app that does it.
Suggestion to developer:
1. Multiple downloads would be great enhancement.
2. A more enhance file management system like about to transfer video files from other apps. I tried when using an app for example, file hue, I select a video file, then select open with Rocket, the file is not copied over. If that is can be done then this app is definitely a 5 stars app.
Still the only cast app that lets me cast live video
While it does crash and so on, it’s still the only app that lets me cast live video at the moment. Just noticed you made a new version just a few minutes ago, so I’m glad to see you’re still working on improving this app. If there’s anything you can do to fix the crashing or stalling it would be much appreciated. I’m sure if it was that easy, you’d do it, so I appreciate what you’ve done to this point.
The Best Offline Downloader
I don’t write reviews often, but I use this app more than any other app on my iOS devices, and I hardly ever run into any real problems. It’s easy to reach their tech support if you need to. I would give this app 10 stars or more if I could.
I use this app daily. I don't have home internet connection so I depend o this app for offline viewing. I like it because it's easy and dependable.
