Update: The app I talk about below is as good as ever, in fact better thanks to recent updates – but its name has changed. It is now called Reflector and you can find it here: http://reflectorapp.com/
If you’ve been waiting for a way to do AirPlay Mirroring from your iPad (or iPhone) to a Windows PC, then your wait is now over. Reflection App, which I posted about back in early March when it was Mac only, has released a Windows version.
AirPlay Mirroring, as the name implies, lets you mirror everything you do on your iPad to your PC screen, wirelessly. It’s a superb way to do demos and show an audience everything you are doing on an iPad.
I’ve used Reflection and Air Server for doing demos and screencasts, and both are very good apps.
This new Windows version of Reflection supports the iPad 2 and later, and the iPhone 4S. It’s priced at $19.99 or $59.99 for a 5-person license. You can download a trial version of the Windows app, which is time-limited – you can’t have a connection longer than 10 minutes with the trial version.
I gave the trial version a try on my Windows 7 virtual machine on my MacBook Pro but couldn’t get mirroring going even though the iPad and PC saw each other. I imagine this is due to having a virtual machine in the mix.
For more details, trial download and to purchase the app, visit the Reflection app site.
