What you shall also know:
- By default, you can cast your screen video (useful e.g. for showing photos, giving presentations, browsing web, etc). If you want to transfer also audio together with video, you will need to install Smartcast audio driver (instructions are in the help section of the app).
- You can define the lag but you can't go below certain value given by the TV, typically 1.5-3 secs, i.e. the app is not primarily intended for real-time gaming;
A minor bug fix.

Full version works great on UN65JU7100 - Only complaint is requirement to download audio driver separately from developer.
Needs better speed of display - The app is creative, but lack a stronger streaming snippet to display more faster on the tv.
