AirServer for PC, one of the world’s most advanced AirPlay receivers, has been updated to version 2.0 which brings a long-awaited recording feature, allowing you to record whatever is happening on your iPad or iPhone with the push of a button. The new feature is available on all supported Windows platforms including Vista, 7, 8 & 8.1.
Thanks to popular apps like AirServer and Reflector, the limited realm of AirPlay receivers has been vastly expanded to include Macs and Windows PCs. X-Mirage is the latest player in town and it comes with in-built media controls, the ability to mirror multiple devices and to record the screen. We browsed through the features earlier, but here is a closer look into how it works with the Windows ecosystem.
The developers of AirServer, an AirPlay receiver for Mac and PC, are completing the works on the long-awaited Windows version with recording and need your help with real world testing. So if you’re feeling adventurous, visit their download page, grab a copy of “AirServer for PC – version 2.0 beta with recording”, try it out and don’t forget to give your feedback after a couple days of hard testing.
AirServer for Mac has been recently updated to version 5.0.5, which adds Quad HD support. That means you can run AirServer on an iMac with mirroring optimized for Target Display and then mirror from another iMac with 1:1 pixel at 2560×1440 resolution (Quad HD). The new AirServer also fixes some Heartbleed related security issues.
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.
