Update: App is now updated

That didn’t take long. Koushik Dutta, the man behind AllCast, has gotten his application to play nice with the new Amazon Fire TV set-top box. Dutta was able to get AllCast to mirror content from his smartphone to the set-top box in just two hours. He says the APIs found in Fire TV are actually much better to use than the ones found in Chromecast. While the APIs are not easier to use, they are much more flexible with Fire TV. Dutta also feels it functions better than Apple TV.

Hit the break for a demonstration video.
