Squirrels, the company behind the popular AirParrot, Reflector and Slingshot apps, has just released AirParrot 2, the long awaited sequel to AirParrot. This upgrade is available for Mac and Windows, and it introduces major new features along with “drastically” improved performance.
Most of you, Apple TV Hacks readers, are probably familiar with AirParrot, a little pice of software for Mac, Windows and Chrome OS that takes AirPlay mirroring to the next level. AirParrot lets you wirelessly mirror your Mac, PC or Chromebook’s screen to your Apple TV, all without any additional hacks or jailbreaks.
Squirrels, the company that took AirPlay mirroring to the next level with AirParrot, has just released AirParrot for Chrome OS that adds wireless display mirroring to any Chromebook.
Netflix comes on top of my “Apple TV-uses” list but AirPlay mirroring is a close runner up. The flexibility it provides is unlimited as you can show off almost anything on your HDTV with just a tap – it can be movies, games, webpages, presentations and what not. Though this works great if you are an Apple-only guy, for a person with a Windows PC or an unsupported Mac, this feature is fairly out of reach and that is where this post comes in.
AirParrot for Windows, a great little app that enables your Windows PC to AirPlay its screen to Apple TV, has just got a major update that adds specific application mirroring, a feature that was previously only available on Mac. The update is also said to “greatly enhance performance”, as all the main functionalities have been “touched, tweaked, improved and optimized.”
