HTC Zoe app gains Chromecast support and usability enhancements

4

HTC's helpful video creation app just got a ton more useful, especially to Chromecast owners.

Creating Zoe videos is one of those things you either love to do or never really bother with, especially if you used an early version of the software and never looked back, but it really is one of the more clever things HTC has done over the last couple of years.
