AllCast 2.0 brings a fresh Material design makeover [DOWNLOAD]


AllCast tablet UI

Even when you’re a developer as big as Koushik Dutta, getting your apps up to speed with Google’s Material design isn’t the easiest of tasks. Sometimes you need a little help and he got just that thanks to designer/fellow blogger Liam Spradlin who whipped up a fresh new Material look for AllCast in its new 2.0 update.

It’s not like AllCast was bad looking before, but this brings the app up to speed with Google’s Material guidelines. Small changes to the slide-out navigation menu can be found with slick new icons, along with the gallery view also receiving some love.

Without a doubt, AllCast is one of those must-have Android apps for Google’s Chromecast owners as it allows you to cast just about anything to the dongle. Whether it’s media stored on your device, or in the cloud, AllCast makes it all possible. The free version of the app caps video viewing at 5 minutes, but there’s also AllCast Premium which will run you $5.

  1. Sweet.

  2. So I can fire up MXPlayer with this thing and have it beam movies to my Amazon Fire Stick?

    1. Only if your movies are in the format that is supported by Android out-of-the-box (MP4 with AAC|MP3). Which I doubt is how you choose to keep your movies, since you like me use MX Player ;)

      1. why isn’t mp4 more mainstream ?

        1. It is. No, I’m talking about MKV containers and Dolby sound. That’s what most MX users have it for – because it has a plugin to play DDS streams.

          1. what I mean is……. if MP4 is so abundant everywhere, then why do people continuously find themselves unable to play non-mp4 formats when they try to chromecast something. why isn’t every product out there recording in and encoding in mp4 compatible formats. it is apparently the king of video formats, so why shouldn’t it be everywhere and used by all.

          2. OK. Let me spell what I meant between the lines. P-I-R-A-T-E-D C-O-N-T-E-N-T :)

          3. MP4 doesn’t readily support Dolby Digital or DTS (it is possible, but you’re breaking the standard and some players won’t like), and doesn’t support subtitles, chapters, or multiple audio tracks. MKV supports all of that, and is an open standard.
