One of the best new apps from last year is getting even better today. Dayframe, developed by cloud.tv, just received an update bringing support for the Chromecast. If you aren’t familiar with Dayframe, it allows you to turn any tablet or phone into a gorgeous digital picture frame. Not only will it display stuff from your device’s Gallery, but it also supports Dropbox, Google Drive, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, Google+, and more. It’s perfect for older tablets that you don’t use anymore. You can create your own playlists or let Dayframe come up with it’s own slideshow.
Now you can cast the content to your big screen by utilizing the Chromecast. Now according to cloud.tv, this isn’t just a “play and sit back” approach. It’s interactive, as in your can control what’s playing on the the Chromecast. You can swipe forwards or backwards, zoom to fit or fill, shuffle, and even like photos. You can check out the video below to see for yourself. Dayframe Prime is required in order to use the Chromecast option, which costs $2.99.
The app is also rebranded to Dayframe Chromecast, and the Dayframe Prime option is now an in-app purchase and no longer a separate APK in the Play Store. If you already bought Dayframe Prime in the past, you won’t have to purchase it again. Other than the Chromecast option, Dayframe Prime offers a slew of extra features which include custom playlists, shuffle mode, current weather, screensaver timers, brightness timer, and “open an app” timer.
Note: You will need the latest version of Google Play Services (4.2+) in order to use the Chromecast feature.
