[New Chromecast App] DrawCast lets your draw on your phone and TV at the same time


Do you like to draw or doodle occasionally? A new app called DrawCast, from Hillman Works, just hit the Google Play Store that lets you draw on your phone or tablet. No big deal right? There are tons of those kinds of apps. What makes DrawCast special is that it’s Chromecast compatible so you can see your drawings come to life on your big screen TV in real time.

Now don’t expect to do anything elaborate. You won’t find anything major as far as special tools or effects. I am sure the app will evolve over time, but for now, it’s a simple interface that is actually pretty cool once you’re connected to your Chromecast. As to lag, it’s minimal, but every few seconds, you might get a slight delay. The only thing that is glaringly missing is there is no way to save your works of art. That’s important for the kids if you know what I mean.

DrawCast is free and offers three colors, but for a one-time in-app purchase of $2.00, you will remove ads and get an additional 27 colors. Give it a shot and let us know what you think.

Robert lives in upstate New York where he was born and raised. Technology was always his passion. His first computer was a Radio Shack TRS80 Color that used a cassette tape to save programs, and his first laptop was a Toshiba T1200FB that sported a CGA greyscale screen and two 720kb floppy drives (no hardrive). From the early 90’s through late 2011, he only owned Motorola phones starting with the MircroTAC all the way through to the Droid X. He broke that streak when he bought the Galaxy Nexus. Now he's sporting a Galaxy Note 4, and absolutely loves it. He has a wonderful wife and a 6 year old son. In his free time he enjoys sports, movies, TV, working out, and trying to keep up with the rapid fast world of technology.
