LG tries to create a universal AirPlay for apps

LG today is releasing something it's calling "Connect SDK" to app developers. It's an open-source project that's designed to allow iOS and Android devices to stream video and photos to as many television devices as possible. At launch, it supports Roku, Chromecast, FireTV, webOS TVs, and some LG TVs. LG says that Apple TV support is also in the works, but isn't supported at launch.

MLB.TV is now streaming on Google's Chromecast

Starting today, you'll be able to watch America's pastime on Chromecast. MLB.TV now supports Google's $35 streaming stick, and fans can start casting games to the TV once the required updates for At Bat 2014 arrive on Android and iOS this afternoon. A premium subscription to MLB.TV is required if you want to stream with Chromecast. The cost of entry isn't cheap at $24.99 monthly or $129.99 for the entire season, but at least that includes your At Bat subscription for watching games (or listening to radio broadcasts) on the go.

Buying in also means you get viewing privileges on a slew of other mobile devices, game consoles, and set-top boxes that offer MLB.TV. Casting also carries the benefit of freeing up your phone so you can track stats and scores elsewhere in the league.

Amazon's updated Cloud Drive Photos app makes it easier to browse your pictures

Amazon is finally giving its Cloud Drive Photos app on iOS the overhaul it so desperately needs. Before today, the app automatically uploaded photos and videos from your camera roll and put them in one massive folder. There was no efficient way to navigate through them; everything was ordered chronologically, but photos weren't split up in any helpful way.
