Short and sweet update to let you guys and gals know about seven Android apps which recently picked up support for Google’s Chromecast device. Note that some of these are in very early stages of release and that some bugs will need ironed out. But, for those of you who like to keep up with the latest apps to see Chromecast support, here ya go!

  • Digital Concert Hall - Pull up more than 250 concert recordings on demand, listen to 150+ interviews with conductors, and soloists, or watch one of dozens of HD live streams from each year.
  • KaraokeCast – Choose from more than 300 songs to sing and turn your living room into a hole-in-the-wall diner with regular patrons who wanna get their Journey on.
  • Chromecast Greetings & Wishes - Hosting a get-together or holiday party? Why not cast a giant greeting or phrase to that unused TV? Features dozens of themed backgrounds for all occasions.
  • CineTrailer Cinema – Pull up movie listings (UK, Germany, Ireland, Italy), trailers, reminders, synopses, and more with the tap of a screen. Forget gathering around the smartphone, push that new trailer to the TV!
  • Beautiful Quotes – Rotate through handpicked selection of inspirational and positive quotes; customize font size and/or duration. Beats one of those “hang in there” posters at work, no?
  • younited by F-Secure – Upload, share, and access your files (pictures, music, documents, etc) from anywhere in the world. Integrates nicely with Dropbox, Facebook and other sources and includes 5GB of free storage.
  • Lynda – Access high-quality, current, and engaging video tutorials taught by recognized industry experts.
