Tired of just using Google’s $35 media streamer to, you know… stream media? You can use a Chromecast to play games on your TV. Or you can try an Android app called DrawCast which lets you doodle on your TV using a Chromecast.

Update: The app has been renamed CastPad for trademark-related reasons.

DrawCast

Just fire up the CastPad app on your Android phone or tablet, choose a pen color, and start drawing. Whatever you’re scribbling on the small screen will show up on your big screen TV almost instantly.

CastPad is available as a free download, but the free app only supports 3 colors, black, white and blue. If you want 30 colors and an ad-free experience, you can pay $2 for CastPad Premium through an in-app purchase.

The latest version of CastPad also has a neat trick: if the app is installed on multiple phones or tablets and they’re all connected to your Chromecast, anything you draw on one screen will show up on all the others.

  1. Put a TV in the conference room, add Chromecast and the app, and you can whiteboard without getting up.

    1. Hell if I know. Could make for one seriously high-tech version of Pictionary. Or a sort of whiteboard thing.
