    I'm not sure what you are trying to ask.

    Chromecast won't get you the ability to download Android apps. It just casts the screen from for example mobile apps such as Netflix which are already enabled for Chromecast. Incidentally Chromecast also works on iPhone with the Google Cast app from the App Store.

    Probably the best way to download and run Android Apps on your TV is with an Android mini-PC box/stick or the Remix Mini (Amazon UK, £58).
