Have you been trying to find a way to wirelessly mirror your iPad2 or your iPhone 4S onto your Mac Book? Look no further— the Reflection app and Air Parrot are here!
Reflection: Free Trial- Time Limited Individual License is $14.99- Mulit License 5 licenses for $49.95 each. You must be running OS X 10.6+ to use the application.
Here is how it works: Load the Reflection App onto your computer. Next double tap your home button and bring up AirPlay. Next you will see an icon for your Mac book Pro’s name. Just check the Mac book, turn on mirroring and, voila, your iPad is mirrored onto your Mac book. This is great for meetings, the classroom, a webinar and when your eyes are tired and you need a bigger screen! Best of all NO WIRES!
Air Parrot Free Trial- $9.99 for one License, $29.99 for 5 Licenses. AirPlay your Mac screen to Apple TV wirelessly. Your Apple TV needs to be 2nd or 3rd generation for AirParrot to work. Once you've opened AirParrot, click on the icon in your menu bar. Select the AirPlay device (such as your AppleTV) and then select which screen you want to mirror. To stop mirroring, simply click on the same AirPlay device in the menu. Great for classrooms with Apple TV and those who want to project the Mac screen onto the class plasma.
