  • I paid for the Chromecast add on as I have four of them in my house. It only works 10% of the time. Usually just hangs with the Avia logo on the TV screen. Have to keep restarting and retrying. Dont buy the Chromecast add on till they fix it!

  • So I bought the full version so I could cast from xbmc and it keeps crashing after about 3 minutes this has occurred over the last 24 hours I'm hoping it gets sorted or I'd like a refund shame because before this I was recommending it to a lot of people

  • 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!

  • One suggestion though: could you just enable subtitles by default for casting without the need to go through choosing a file, the way it currently works when streaming on own device. In my setup, the subtitle srt file is named exactly as the video file and resides in same directory. Thank you.

  • i bought this primarily for its chromecast support. it works as expected, but not everything works perfectly. the biggest annoyances is deleted media in my phone still displayed in avia although refreshed multiple times.

  • Bought this app for chrome cast feature, tried it a few times, if your willing to sit there for a few hours to load the film then it's fine, I'm the meantime I've downloaded the file onto a stick, needs transcoding,

  • Stable but basic. I like the simple navigation. Desperately needs network tools & guidance integrated to help users determine why things aren't working. What resources are required & what's missing. Slowly developing & getting better. Doesn't work with other devices executing Avia on the same network.

  • The app is well enough on its own, but to try and make us pay for the ability to cast is asinine. Just about anything I would use this app to send to my chromecast I can use another app for free... Offer casting ability for free and this app will get better feedback from me.

  • Bought this over a year ago and worked with customer service for over a month (took over 2 weeks to get a response) to try and get thos app to work. They just told me to reinstall! Like I didn't already try that! Doesn't cast music or video. Plays video and music on phone fine though. Buyer beware!!

  • You think Google would monitor ripoffs like this. You would also think Google would make it easy for customers to play MP4s But NO. We have to roam around and get experiences like this. Pay $2.99 for no ability to connect to Chromecast, Re installed Chromecast, rebooted it, rebooted the router. NOTHING. I want my money back

  • I paid the money to be able to cast the videos I already have on my phone and this app will play the video on the app but when you go to cast it just makes weird noises and shows no video. This is why I don't pay for apps, soon as you do the piece of crap they promise can do what you want doesn't.

  • I see you have finally (?) disclosed your scam. This app is useless without paying for the IAP of $2.99... Until you disclose the complete limitations of your application, you are being DISHONEST with your customers. Limitations must be CLEAR, COMPLETE & disclosed UP FRONT, not at the end of the description with a reference to a website or some other BS marketing tactic.

*** In-app purchase of $2.99 gives you Chromecast support, casting to UPnP/DLNA enabled devices, access to Dropbox, support for themes and removes all ads ***

**We have released a beta version of Avia which includes Google's Chromecast Companion Library. If you're having issues with Chromecast discovery, please send us a beta group membership request at: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/avia-beta-testers**

Quick troubleshoot for missing Chromecast icon:
- Reboot WiFi router (optional: change WiFi channel), reset factory settings on Chromecast, rename Chromecast and reinstall Avia.

Features:
- Updated user interface with simpler navigation and smoother response
- Improved stability and support for the latest Google Chromecast software
- Subtitle support while casting (Note: This feature requires separate subtitle files)
- Resize subtitles during Chromecast playback
- Full playback control from your phone or tablet
- Music album artwork and artist images displayed on your TV
- Save animated gifs from the web and cast them with Avia
- Support for devices running Android Version 4.0.3/4.0.4

And of course, Avia still allows you to: Share your photos, videos and music on these devices: Chromecast / Xbox 360 / Xbox One / Google TV / PC / Mac

Play and manage media stored on your Android device, in the cloud or from these devices: Facebook / Dropbox / Google+ Photos (Picasa) / Network Attached Storage (NAS) / Windows Media Player (WMP) / XBMC / Serviio / Plex / Subsonic / PC / Mac / Other Android Devices


Finally, here are a few pieces of advice to get the most out of Avia:
- Make sure your Android device and device you want to cast to, e.g. Chromecast, are using the same Wi-Fi network
- Some users only see the Avia logo when casting to Chromecast. Changing the Wi-Fi channel on your router to anything other than its current setting solves this problem
- When using Avia to access media from other devices, they must have UPnP/DLNA serving enabled.
- When casting from Avia, files MUST be compatible with the receiving device. Many devices have fewer compatible codecs than a home computer. Please review your media formats with the specifications of your devices before attempting to cast. (Example: Chromecast is not compatible with .AVI files) Please see the video conversion guide at aviatheapp.com/support
