At $35, the Chromecast is without a doubt the one of the most affordable media streaming players on the market today. On the downside, the device has also been limited to only a handful of supported apps up until now. The good news is that all of this is about to change for the better, as the Chromecast SDK is now open to all developers.
So what does this change mean for Chromecast users? In short, it means that any developer can now bake Chromecast support right into your favorite apps. It also means that the number of apps that support Chromecast could be making a pretty massive jump upwards in the days and weeks to come.
Bottom-line, the release of the SDK will allow the Chromecast to reach its true potential and means that an already great media streaming device is about to be transformed into something epic.
