Method 1: Using the mobile app

  1. Open the Neverthink app on your Android, iPhone, or iPad. If you’ve already installed the app, you’ll find its multicolored “nt” icon on your home screen, in the app drawer, or by searching.

    • If you haven’t yet installed it, you can download it now for free from the App Store (iPhone/iPad) or Play Store (Android). If it’s your first time using the app, follow the on-screen instructions to scroll through the welcome screens and give the app permission to run.
    • If you want to use your phone or tablet to cast Neverthink to a Smart TV or streaming device (including Chromecast), allow the app access to Bluetooth when requested.
  2. Create an account. This lets you sync your favorites and your viewing history if you want to watch Neverthink on a different device. To create an account, tap Settings at the bottom-left corner, tap Backup & Sync devices, and follow the on-screen instructions.

    • If you already have a Neverthink account, go to Settings > Backup & Sync devices > and tap Log in at the bottom of the page.
  3. Tap ‘Remote’ to open your remote control (iPhone/iPad only). This is the 9-square icon at the bottom-center. This displays a panel of buttons along the bottom of the screen (or the side on some larger-screened tablets) that act as your remote control.

    • To add more channels to your remote, tap Add more next to “My channels,” tap + next to each channel you want to add, and then tap X to return to the remote.

  4. Click your Chromecast to start casting. Once selected, Neverthink will appear on your TV screen as well as in the mobile app or in Chrome on your computer. Use your phone, tablet, or computer to control Neverthink instead of your TV remote.
