Koushik Dutta, or just Koush, is one of the more well-known developer names in Android and has been in the game for a long time. Previously known for his work on ClockworkMod, then for releasing various apps, he is back yet again, this time testing out a new app called Inkwire.
Inkwire is an Android-to-Android screen sharing and remote assistance application. With it, two individuals can pair devices without the need for ADB or a computer. Once two people are paired via an access code, they can get to work on whatever they may need to do. This app could be useful for the resident tech geek in a family, who is always being asked to fix a family member’s phone. (more…)
Koush, a man of yachts, re-emerged on the dev scene this week with the release of a new Chrome app called Vysor (in beta still) that lets you control Android devices via computer. But not only does it let you mirror and control your Android devices, you can also share your Android device’s connection session with anyone else in the world through an easily shareable link.

A new app from Koush has hit Google Play called Mirror, one which allows non-rooted Lollipop users to record their screens as a video, or cast their screens up to the big screen in the living room using Google’s Chromecast hardware. If you are still on Kit Kat, though, don’t worry, as rooted users can also use the application. (more…)
As we came to realize only a few minutes into our time with the Android L developer preview build, it seems that Google has removed the clear all notifications button found in the notification bar. Whether this is a permanent change to Android by Google, we still don’t know (since this is a preview build), but well-known developer Koush wasn’t having it. (more…)
You know what’s better than watching media on your big screen TV through the AllCast application? Watching your media and deciding what you’re going to watch next at the same time. The latest update to AllCast has landed in Google Play and brings a nifty split-view tablet interface that allows you to do just that. (more…)
Remember AllCast, Android developer Koushik Dutta’s AirPlay-like application that lets you cast content to different devices? The app’s streaming capabilities were previously limited to only players and set top boxes that Dutta implemented support for, but the release of AllCast Receiver, a companion app for AllCast, changes that.

It seems like Chromecast is finally getting kicked off in terms of development, with developers using the SDK left and right to update their apps to support the HDMI dongle. What we’ve all been waiting for, though, is native Android mirroring to Chromecast similar to Apple’s AirPlay feature for iOS. It looks like we’re now one step closer, with famed developer Koushik Dutta having updated his Mirror app to support the streaming stick in a very beta way.
When the Chromecast SDK was finally released to the public earlier this month, we knew right away that we were going to see some cool things. One of the first things to be released with this new SDK was Koush’s updated AllCast app that allowed local media streaming. It seems he isn’t done just yet though, and released a short video teasing screen mirroring from your Android device to the big screen. (more…)
