If you’re one of the many people who uses Twitch, the online video game broadcasting platform, you may want to pick yourself up a Chromecast. TwitchCast is a free app that’ll let you view live Twitch streams on the big screen, a big win for hardcore Twitchers. (more…)
One of things I have wanted to see for a long time are all of my favorite mobile games (ex. Dead Trigger, NFS: Most Wanted) being played on my HDTV through Chromecast, then using my phone as a controller. While a new app called GamingCast may not be that special, it’s definitely a start in the right direction. (more…)
Ready to try out an exciting new Chromecast-enabled app from Google? Well, you’d better have an iPhone or iPad, because it’s exclusive to iOS for the time being (Edit: Updated below with Android details).
Called Photowall, the Chrome Experiment lets people produce a collage of photos by uploading them via the app or the web, doodling on them using the built-in paintbrush tool, and then sending them to a Chromecast. The result can be exported to YouTube and shared with friends. (more…)

Here at DL, we have become fans of Roman Nurik’s latest creation, the Muzei live wallpaper. It lets us forget all of those hours of heated internal debate on deciding which wallpaper looks the hottest, and has essentially claimed its rightful place on most of our home screens.

The app displays wallpapers in such a beautiful way and there are so many good extensions already, that it’s quite fun seeing each outdo each other.
Which are the best five for the month of March? Let’s check them out.
Google is still going strong with their trademark “Update Wednesdays,” and this week is absolutely no exception. We already saw the Wallet update and the possibly erroneous YouTube update, but now have a plethora of other fresh meat, most being relatively minor. Regardless, it’s definitely a good thing to see Google paying attention and squashing those bugs, adding nifty new features along the way.
All the updated apps are listed down below. We’ll be updating this post as we learn more. (more…)
