Stream Content and Send Files from Your Mobile Device via WiFi with IPCast

With each passing generation, the specifications sheet on our mobile devices grow better and better. It’s now not uncommon to see devices with 32 or 64 gigs of internal storage, and there are also 128 gig MicroSD cards for those lucky enough to own devices with expandable storage.

With all of this available space, many users end up keeping a large cache of media content and useful files on their mobile devices. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a quick and easy way to share this content to other devices connected to the same network? Well, this us exactly what IPCast by XDA Forum Member stefanuc111 is designed to do.

IPCast lets users wirelessly stream and send content and miscellaneous files to any devices connected to the same local network. To start sharing with IPCast, simply use the built-in and user-friendly interface to select which files to share. Alternatively, IPCast features Gallery integration using Android’s Share intent, so you also distribute content directly from your Gallery app.

Your newly shared content can then be accessed via any web browser, regardless of OS platform on the target device. Additionally, IPCast supports “SoundBeam” synchronization, which allows you to sync playback across various devices.

If you’re looking for a fast and efficient way of sharing your files and content across your LAN, head over to the application thread and give IPCast a shot.

Samsung Galaxy S6 To Receive Major Camera Update

When the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge were launched, they became the prime focus for all discussions as Samsung took a break on their traditional design philosophy and opted for something that their flagship lineup hadn't seen before. But along with the design, a lot of Android enthusiasts were also impressed by another aspect of the flagship duo: their camera.

Tactile: An Addicting Game with Beautiful Material Design

The game industry has been around for decades, catering to a wide spectrum of people, young gamers and elder ones, casual gamers and serious ones, and for an industry with such specifications, innovation isn't the only fuel for success. An increasingly large number of games draw inspiration from another and build on top of that idea, and Tactile is one such product, an excellently executed brainchild of a mashup between Tetris and 2048. For 2048 veterans, the game will come across as relatively familiar....

This is a site of power users, and it is fair to say that most of us are more knowledgeable about Android than the average Joe. We tinker and tweak by customizing every corner for endless hours, until we arrive at a comfortable software configuration. In contrast, a large chunk of Android users don’t even use a different launcher - and many don’t know what a launcher is in the first place!   When we get so involved in our...
