Achieve Gapless Playback on a Chromecast with Gear

It’s neat that Google, with a $385 billion market cap, still fails to implement a basic feature like gapless music playback within their own product ecosystem, yet a tiny company like @_Treasurebox_ can solve the problem with a $3.99 OS X app.

Chalk up another win for the little guy: Gear (a.k.a. G-Ear) for Google Play streams gapless music from OS X to Google’s Chromecast. Google’s own Google Music Player does not. The Gear music player for iOS isn’t currently ready for prime time, but the OS X version is, and it just keeps getting better with each release.
