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. The software makes it incredibly simple to put together compelling stories from your collection of photos and videos, and over the last year HTC has worked hard to grow the app into a social platform where users can share and enjoy the creations of others.

Today's update to HTC Zoe brings sharing your creations back to the local level, and with that comes a short list of much needed functionality improvements that make the app feel much more complete.
