    Wonder how well the air mirror works in real life application. It would like having iOS apps on the Mac!

  • Does that support AirPlay Mirroring ??

  • Polmo333

    I don’t think so

  • Joshua Ochs

    I note how very carefully they avoid the topic of Airplay Mirroring, and how it’s not being addressed in the comments. Answer is that it doesn’t work and most likely will never work, as found elsewhere on their site. But they would rather not tell you about that when trying to sell you a product.

    It still confuses me that links in you articles on the website link back to themselves. Why not include an easy link to the Airserver website for more info? This is the case for many posts.
