I am a gadget, app hoarder. I always get excited when a new app solves a problem at work or in life in general that has no-one was able to solve before.
I’ve often needed to show family and friends (who are far away) how to do things on the iPhone (or iPad, or i-whatever for that matter). At conferences, I’ve had to demonstrate an application using a table-top projector and (not-so-great) camera gadget. At work, teaching people how to use certain apps for business is essential.
Now, it’s relatively easy to do live or recorded demos of applications and iOS workflow using mirroring apps/servers.
These applications use AirPlay to show on your desktop (Mac or PC) your real-time iOS screen in a shell/skin that looks like your actual device via “mirroring.”
In a quick search for apps that would mirror iOS to the Mac or PC, real-time, I’ve found the following so far:
Educators and training professionals will be all over this… Right?
