X-Mirage shows iOS screens on OS X and Windows


Here’s an interesting idea: Monitor your iOS devices full screen on a Mac (or Windows “coming soon”) and even watch multiple iOS device displays side by side on the screen.

This is a way cool idea and it's exactly what X-Mirage published by PlumAmazing does. You simply load X-Mirage on your host system then go to your iOS device’s settings and in the AirPlay section choose “X-Mirage [device_name]” where “device_name” is the name of your host and voila! Your device is displayed. It’s that easy. On the host you can record the iOS device’s screen which makes it incredibly useful for training or demoing new apps.

X-Mirage supports iPad2+, iPad Mini, iPhone 4S+, iPod Touch 5+ and Mac OS X 10.6.8+ over Ethernet, WiFi, or Bluetooth. And here’s the really cool part: X-Mirage cost only $16. X-Mirage gets a Gearhead rating of 5 out of 5.
