Return of the King

Chromecast + Android

While I appreciate the size of my iPhone versus, say hauling around an enormous flat panel screen and calling it a smart phone, I did find the functionality of drax0r's numerous android devices scattered around the house enormously helpful.

I decided some time ago I didn't require an iPad or other knock-off tablet for any reason, even those reasons which included finding them invaluable once owned. But having Chromecast-enabled apps casting from my sole communication device was proving problematic; enter an embarrassingly inexpensive 7" Android tablet who's sole purpose is to Chromecast, sitting adjacent my similarly-purposed remotes.

It doesn't need to do anything else, and it does what its supposed to, perfectly.

I can see why Android gives iPhone a run for their money. While I do not want to lug around such a large smart phone, I will admit to being a tad envious when it comes to trying to look at something detailed on my phone, while sitting next to someone with twice the screen size reading easily.

And I am one of those who bought an iPad out of simple curiosity. It has become invaluable. Although it does not have the functionality of a regular computer, it allows me to do many things that I would have ordinarily done at my computer - read, comment, find information play simple games - all while lounging in bed. Yes, I could attempt to do those things on my phone. Sadly, even with my glasses, my vision is not good enough to do that comfortably.

What an elegant solution to improve your Chromecast functionality!
