SecondScreen offers rooted Android users better mirroring experience


Android users who have a rooted smartphone or tablet may want to consider SecondScreen for mirroring their device to a Chromecast. Designed to work best with ROMs that are built on AOSP, the app adjusts the device’s to work better for casting.

Whether using a Google Chromecast, MHL, or DLNA for casting, some users may be familiar with the black bars that give your Android a letterbox-like look. This is because most tablets employ a 16:10 aspect ratio instead of the 16:9 found on televisions. SecondScreen also helps for other devices that have display resolution higher than 720 and 1080p, “dumbing” it down to look better on a television.

While there is a free version of the app, a premium experience will only set you back a buck and includes profile shortcuts for the home screen, Tasker integration, and more.
