One of the main features that keeps my tied into the Apple ecosystem is AirPlay – the ability to stream your content to your Apple TV or AirPort Express, wirelessly. So when CyanogenMod developer Koushik Dutta released AllCast for Android, I was very interested.
Alongside the release of iOS 7.1 beta, Apple has issued a new Apple TV software beta. The new beta specifically “enables users to mirror content of an iPad to an Apple TV using AirPlay.”
Apple has created the awesome platform of AirPlay to get your iOS device displays into Apple TV‘s large screen. But the major drawback has always been the lack of AirReceiving enabled devices. There are some great apps, like AirServer or Reflector, that mirror iPhone and iPad screens to your Mac, and now there is a new app called X-Mirage that does the same job, but promises to take AirPlay to the next level.
