allcast
Last Updated: April 21st, 2014

There's no doubt that Chromecast is cool. You know what else is cool? Casting stuff from your phone or tablet to AppleTV, FireTV, Roku, Chromecast, Xbox 360, Xbox One, WDTV, a SmartTV, or other DLNA-certified devices. And that's exactly what Koush's AllCast app does – makes streaming locally-stored and some cloud-stored (Dropbox, Drive, G+, or even a server) media simple and easy.

1 2 3

Along with beta support for streaming from Google Drive and to FireTV, Koush also recently added another new feature to AllCast: redemption codes to enable premium features. The code is attached to a Google account, so once it's activated the app can be installed on other devices and redeemed for the full version, as well.

The premium version of AllCast (normally $4.99) removes all ads and splash screens, as well as the limitation on video length. Basically, it disables everything annoying in the free version.

With that, we have 50 codes to give away.

This contest is now over.

The final results are listed below. If you've won, you will be contacted in the near future. Congratulations!

Everyone else - keep participating and stay tuned to Android Police so that you don't miss our upcoming giveaway announcements. You can follow AP on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and RSS.

If you win, here's how to redeem the code:

  • Install AllCast
  • Select a device to cast to (this step is important, as the Settings menu doesn't appear till after a device has been selected)
  • Hit the settings button in the top right
  • Tap Redeem Code and choose your email address
  • Enter the code
  • Done

Simple enough, right? Drop a comment letting us know your favorite feature of AllCast and you're in the running. We'll randomly pick 50 winners on Friday.

Good luck!
