    "BubbleUPnP is one of my favorite streaming apps. I use it to cast my media to different devices. The app is easy to setup and I've found that it is just simple to cast from one device to another. This process is just getting easier and easier as apps develop and figure out user friendly ways to pull off this handy trick. This app is great for anyone who loves streaming media."

    "Let's start out by defining "DLNA": "Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) was founded by a group of consumer electronics companies in June 2003 (with Sony in the lead role) to develop and promote a set of interoperability guidelines for sharing digital media among multimedia devices under the auspice of a certification standard." - Wikipedia. With that in mind, this DLNA app may very well be the best one out there. At least it is free. Why not just use a cloud and skip the "certification standard"?"
