Remember as a kid, when you'd go to weddings or plays or concerts or whatever, the adult sitting next to you would give you a piece of candy to keep you quiet? Apps are smartphone candy. Pass a few to your phone so it doesn't start blabbing in the middle of the vows.

Google's formidable library of movies and TV shows is now available on iOS, but perhaps more importantly, now Chromecast users can cast content from an iPhone or iPad to the Google wonder-dongle. There are some limitations right now (streaming is Wi-Fi only, and there's no in-app purchasing), but usually Google irons these things out after the release, so we're hoping this will be the same.

Interesting that iOS came second this time.

I wonder, what is the significance of Google Play being released on iOS? Will this make loads of Android people move to iOS or will it make loads of iOS people move to Android?

I imagine it'll last 2 or 3 years before they remove it, then all those people who bought stuff will have no choice but to buy an Android product.

I certainly will not be downloading it.
