***Official*** Google Chromecast ULTRA owner's thread
You don't need an app to use the Chromecast. Just to set it up. Then you just cast from your individual apps. The stream is not being sent from your phone. It just tells the Chromecast where to find the stream. Same from the pc.
Chromecasts all work fine from ios. No limitations. Well, there is one. You can't cast your screen. Basically mirroring your phone on the tv. I find that I don't ever need to do that so it's not an issue for me.
