Widely credited as the first app that lets you stream videos and music directly from your phone or tablet to a Chromecast, Avia is worth checking out for any Android phone-owning Chromecast user. While RealPlayer Cloud offers some of the same features, Avia feels much more like a traditional media player app. It’s what many people have been waiting for.

You do need to fork out for an in-app purchase to get Chromecast support, though – it costs $2.99.

Codec support is reasonably good too. MKV, Divx and MP4 area all supported. The simple interface means we probably wouldn’t use it if it wasn’t for Avia’s unusually good Chromecast skills, but for now it’s a Chromecast essential.
