With Google finally releasing the Chromecast SDK recently, the list of iOS and Android apps who support Chromecast is constantly growing. As it can be quite hard to find Chromecast supported apps on Google Play or Apple’s App Store, we’ve decided to create a complete list of all apps that support Google’s media dongle (or will so soon).
This list will be updated on a regular basis, so make sure to bookmark the page and come back!
