While most people have been finding Chromecast apps by simply searching for the word “Chromecast” in the Google Play Store, one developer thought it necessary to make an app dedicated to finding and highlighting all the apps with Chromecast support in the Google Play Store.
Cast Store is its name, and it’s quite simple in its approach. Users will be able to sort by games and apps, and will be able to drill even deeper with specific subcategories beneath those. Beyond that, users can also note which apps are their favorite, and can suggest new apps that the developer might not have picked up on.
Lists are sortable by newest, name and rating in both ascending and descending order. There’s a search feature if you’re looking for something specific. You’ll also get a quick look at the apps’ ratings and descriptions, so you won’t have to jump to the Google Play Store each time you want to learn something new about it.
All in all, the app is pretty good for its purpose, and should be getting even better in the weeks to come as the developer looks to introduce more features. It is ad-supported, though there will soon be an option to get rid of the ads through an in-app premium purchase. Be sure to give it a whirl and see if you can’t find that perfect app with Chromecast support that you’ve been looking for.
