  • This application is amazing. I've tried other applications to stream local media from my phone to my Chromecast and everything else was so bad and rendered videos unwatchable. This applications plays a 1080p video no problem, definitely worth the $3, I honestly would've paid more. For everyone complaining about having to pay to use the features, pucker up and pay the measly $3 because it's well worth the money.

  • This app may not have the best look but it does the job! Even though there is a $2.99 fee to be able to cast local content chromecast is still a great investment. Far cheaper than other casting equipment. Definitely worth a go!

  • I took advantage of the in app purchase in the hope that Avia would let me Chromecast video off my portable Seagate wireless server onto my TV. It worked straight off - no problem at all. It even let me disconnect my phone when I had thought that surely it must be going via the phone. Well worth the money. Go for it.

  • Only thing I would like is a listed of supported video formats that are able to stream. Well worth the 3$ for chromecast support this allows me to completely retire my laptop PC when it comes to streaming any form of video. Thank you for being so amazing!

  • Probably the greatest app from man kind this and show box combined have saved me hundreds I love this app helps me cast anything to the TV. Its worth the money. Just imagine you DL a movie and you don't have anything to play it with on your TV. Well this is where it comes in handy. 5 stars from me ! And they actually fixed it up too

  • Add HD/vector buttons/icons. Gradient background needs to go! Rounded check boxes should be square. Theme support should be built in not through separate apps. Needs more interface preferences! Themes are too limited!

  • Installed just for 1 thing - casting media to Chromecast. Have paid for this module in In-App Purchase. Trying to "Unlock Extras" - blank screen. Casting don't work at all. WTF? Switched to AllCast. Bye.

  • Just spent the extra $3 to "upgrade" to find that it's extremely buggy when it comes to streaming. I disconnected twice from my chrome cast to see if maybe it was a problem on my end. It was not. The second time, audio stream resulted in mangled audio (video was fine but the audio from video was mangled as well). Bottom Line: Don't put a product for sale without fully testing it.

  • The new update has a better casting of Google plus photos, apparently done from the cloud. I appreciate that. This finally makes Avia useful for me. But still there are issues: UI needs a lot of polish, local video casting gets choppy because of high bitrate, etc.

  • Got this to Chromecast my films however almost all the formats I have aren't supported. Admittedly this could be Google's fault but it means I'm left with a clunky player which I paid for which isn't a patch on the MX player

  • I had some trouble getting Avia to scan my Synology NAS, 3 minutes after I emailed support I got a response asking for screenshots, a day later the issue was resolved. I'm very pleased with this app!

  • I had an issue and the dev wrote back with some advice. The issue is now fixed and I'm am one happy customer. I highly recommend this app to anyone with a chromecast that wants to stream local media.

  • I wrote about an issue before and the support was X. So I spent hours with the app and now everything is fine. I don't get it but I'm glad that I can use it again. EVERYTHING is fine. It would be great a full redesign to the main app, it's so dark that it's hard to look for people with eyes problems. I hate that I have to install another app for a theme. U can do better! This app worth it.

  • Doesn't work as advertised. Castting was sporadic at best. Sometimes it would see my network sometimes it wouldn't. Couldn't get the software to index any of my files. Emailed for support, but I only got an automated message, telling me support would follow. Never has. I want a refund.

  • Well worth the money to upgrade for the Chromecast support. The app works well for everything and support is kind enough to actually answer emails with feature requests. Would highly recommend! We not use it daily! Thanks!
