Over the last few days, Apple has released four new iPad Pro ads that take the messaging for the line in a little bit of a different direction. Where the last ad from six months ago compared the iPad Pro to a computer by showing off ways that it could perform similar tasks, but in a more portable and easier to use package, the new commercials are all about contrasts between the two.
Here’s just a quick demo of AirPlay Mirroring – from the iPad 2 to my MacBook Pro, using the Air Server app on the Mac. Air Server has just been updated to include this functionality – so after what seemed like an eternity waiting for this to be possible, this week we suddenly have two Mac apps that offer this capability.
I posted about the first one, Reflection, a few days back. Both apps are great to have around, but Air Server has been around much longer and feels more complete right now.
This is my first effort at screencasting with Air Server and with the Screenflow app on the Mac. I’ve got lots to learn in terms of getting more polished results, but I hope to make more use of this in future to do app demos and share iPad tips via screencasts as well as written articles.
Let me know what you think about this, and don’t be too cruel with the comments – this is my first real stab at this.
Dolphin Browser HD is an excellent, and free, alternative browser app for the iPad. It is one of our previous picks for Best Free iPad App of the Week and also one of our selections for Best iPad Apps of 2011.
The app has a host of nice features, but the one that is becoming a big favorite for me is Gestures. You can use simple gestures as shortcuts to some of your favorite web sites. It’s very easy and super slick to use.
So I did a little video demo to show how cool this feature is. Apologies for getting the app name slightly wrong – for some reason I inserted the word ‘web’ into its name while doing the video.
Here’s an App Store link for Dolphin Browser HD; it’s still a free app.
