TL;DR - This app exceeds my expectations, and does exactly what it’s designed to do, even with a wireless connection. I have 100Mbps WiFi, and it worked well enough to not notice any lag while playing Black Ops 4. I never write reviews for apps, but this app is gonna be the exception. I can’t believe how incredibly useful this app is! I’ve only been using it for about a day, so I’ll update this if I run into any problems. I’ve been struggling for quite some time with my significant other over who gets to use the TV and when, and how we’re not spending time with each other if we’re using separate TV’s in separate rooms. I stumbled across this app after reading about Microsoft’s Project xCloud, and I can’t believe I never thought to look for something like this before! I set up OneCast on my iPad yesterday. The setup was very simple and quick, it took me less than 5 minutes. You only have to make sure your device and the Xbox are on the same network. As soon as I was done, I was playing The Outer Worlds, Black Ops 4, The Witcher 3, whatever, with all the convenience of a Nintendo Switch! Now I can play Xbox, and she can watch Netflix at the same time in the same room, and everyone’s happy! The app insists that you use a LAN connection from your Xbox to your router, but it worked perfectly fine over WiFi with negligible lag. For clarity, I have a 100Mbps wireless connection between my Xbox and router. If you have a slower connection, this app may not work as well without a hard connection. It’s also compatible with MFi controllers, or if you have a new Xbox controller, you can connect it to your device via Bluetooth, or just do it the way the app recommends and connect an Xbox controller directly to your Xbox. The only thing I still wish I could do with OneCast is be able to connect to my Xbox from another WiFi network, or even over LTE. I’m sure there’s probably a way to do it externally, but I’m not quite that tech savvy. Who knows? Maybe they’re working on something like that next. Overall, I honestly can’t find a downside to OneCast yet. I was scared that I’d spend the $12 just to find that there’d be too much lag time between the Xbox and the device I’m playing on to be able to play anything that isn’t a casual or turn-based kind of game. However, like I said, the lag time is negligible, to the point that it has no effect on your reaction time, so I can’t complain at all. This app is 100% worth the $12, especially if you have a similar situation as I do.
This app would be great if it did not crash so often. I had not problem with this app for the first few minutes I was using it but then it started repeatedly lagging and then crashing. I spent more time trying to log back in than playing.
I love this app so much! The only problem I have is how it drains battery so quickly!
They don’t tell you about the audio lag before purchasing...
If you want a wonderful way to waste money... I have Ethernet cable in my Xbox and fast speeds for Wifi and it connects and 5 seconds later it disconnects
It’s been lagging like crazy lately
I wasn’t sure about this app when I first saw it, but after downloading it and using it it works perfectly even with my Xbox connecting wirelessly. Awesome app I can play any of my Xbox games from anywhere in my house and I can hook up my controller to my phone. There is minimal lag and an awesome app overall. 5 stars.
I like it I just hope you guys make a update that we can use anywhere at anytime
This is Poop never use this
