Google has just released a Chromecast app for iOS, an app that's both incredibly basic but also pretty crucial. Essentially, the new app lets you set up and manage your Chromecast device, something you couldn't do from an iOS device before. Users had to use a standard computer or an Android device to get it functioning online, though you could still able to stream media from iOS to the Chromecast. It's essentially the same as the Chromecast Android app that Google released alongside the device back in August, but it was a bit surprising to not see an iOS version ready to go at the same time. On the other hand, the number of users with only an iOS device and no other computer who also purchased a Chromecast was probably pretty same. Regardless, the problem is solved — you can grab the Chromecast app from the iTunes Store now.
