Is Chromecast worth $35 to iPhone and iPad users?

When Google unveiled their $35 Chromecast I was genuinely interested. It was cheap and offered a lot of really cool app integration such as streaming from Songza, VEVO, Netflix, Plex and more. I ended up picking a Chromecast up, setting it up in my bedroom and... barely ever using it. Why? Because I'm invested into the Apple ecosystem and they have me hooked with the Apple TV. So, Chromecast was essentially a waste of $35. But what about folks not already invested in the Apple TV? Is the Chromecast a better, cheaper option for them?

Set up your Chromecast on your iPhone and iPad with new official app

When Google launched the Chromecast, we knew from the outset that it was iOS compatible, but until now we've had to use our computers to set up the $35 dongle. That need not be the only way any more, as Google has now launched an official Chromecast app into the App Store allowing us the same privilege our Android using friends have been afforded, in that we can now set it up from an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

How to setup and use Google Chromecast with your iPhone, iPad, or Mac

The Google Chromecast is one of the hot tickets in the tech world right now, and while it has somewhat limited functionality compared to something like an Apple TV, there's a lot to be said for it. It's only $35 for starters, and has cross-platform functionality – though Google's idea of cross-platform is still limited to ChromeOS and the Chrome browser, iOS and Android. That's great news for us however, as with Netflix and YouTube initially – and likely Google Play Music when it finally makes the jump to iOS – supported already, we can get in on the action. So, if you're tempted, keep on scrolling for everything you need to know!
