Aircast landscape

We told you guys about Android developer Koush Dutta’s AirCast app (formerly MyCast) a short time ago — an application that allows you to play video stored on your Android device (and even those store in the cloud) on your shiny new Chromecast.

Aside from the name change, the app has undergone further revisions and is essentially ready for the public. Well, whenever the heck Google can get around to finalizing the Chromecast SDK. Because Google has been dragging their feet on whitelisting the app, the ClockworkMod dev decided to work around the Chromecast SDK entirely. Better for us, as we can now partake in the KoushCasting fun.

While the app is currently available for testing, keep in mind it is programmed to self-destruct after 2 days. Koush also mentions he’s managed to baked in additional framework extensions to allow any app that uses the Android audio/video player to beam content to the Chromecast.
