5 apps for wireless screen mirroring of your iPhone or iPad display without Apple TV

5 apps for wireless screen mirroring of your iPhone or iPad display without Apple TV
To mirror your iPhone or iPad display, and stream videos, pictures and other media wirelessly from there you have to have an Apple TV hockey puck, but what about the times you want to do it without, just using the built-in AirPlay feature? Yes, you can, and there are plenty of mirroring apps for your computer that will allow you to do just that.

Imagine a presentation you have to use your iPad for - you can stream the content wirelessly to the computer that is tied to the classroom or boardroom projector with ease by using some of the methods listed below. You just need to install the apps on your Mac or PC (some even allow mirroring to Android devices or Chromebooks), and use AirPlay to throw your iPhone or iPad screen content at them in real time. Check out the collection below if you are in need of something similar.

Haha. With my device, I don't need an app. The capability is already baked into TouchWiz. One of those many great useful features in TouchWiz, where many complain about the effect TouchWiz has on Samsung phones. Android, you don't need an app for that. Your phone already does it out the box.

You don't understand... these apps are for your computer, genius. You can't just get your phone and mirror it to your computer. You need to have something on your computer to "receive" it. And wow, for once Android doesn't need a 3rd party app to do its job for it. Congratulations.

That's so great. I wonder that FonePaw is another mobile solution provider for iPhone and iPad. Check the iphone data recovery and ios transfer app.

Thanks for a great compilation! I'd add ArkMC. This app allows you to stream all kinds of media from your iphone/ipad to different devices (Mac, smart TV, etc). Works really good, without any bugs, compatible with different formats and user-friendly. I totally forget about expensive adapters and cables!

Great article and the instructions, thanks! I will just add my experience using ArkMC app to stream/play media on my Sony TV from iPhone. I thought you will be interested as this way of mirroring is also very easy. I have a laptop so it is my server from which I pick the files with the help of the application and send them wirelessly on TV. Most of the videos that I have are avi or mp4.
