i had the chromecast new for Christmas and my daughter was helping me to make it work.I thought she showed me all the apps available on my iPad.The tv does work but when I turn on the app there is not much to see.6F7E4A3A-3EA1-4E42-9F2B-856ECF639AF3.png

no app list

I have no experience with this.I don’t think it’s working though so what can I do.I am using the right wifi  network and my password is correct.

Sorry to be so clueless ,I don’t even understand half the terms.

Assuming Living room TV is your Chromecast then it looks like it is setup correctly. Now you have to open apps that you want to cast from, for example Netflix. 

You can also search the App Store for other Chromecast apps depending on what you want to do.

I'm not familiar with that app but with the third generation Chromecast you would open the app on the phone and see if it has a cast icon near the corner (typically there but doesn't have to be). The cast icon doesn't have to but it usually looks like this https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/26/Chromecast_cast_button_icon.svg

Ah thank you ,I had obviously got the wrong idea.These youngsters flash through apps at speed before I can catch what they are up to.Thank you

No problem, feel free to come back for any other questions you might have.
