              Reflector App for beaming iPad/iPhone screen to laptop is awesome

              I’ve been recommending people who want to show their iPad or iPhone on a big screen to use an app called Reflector, but until today, I hadn’t tried it out with my devices. I have to say, it is awesome!

              For the disclaimers:

              Reflector requires OS X 10.6.8+ or Windows XP and greater and iPhone 4S, iPad 2 or the new iPad. Recording options are not available on all operating systems.

              So it won’t work on my 3rd gen iPod Touch, but I tried it on my iPad 2 and the results are great. The screen updates very responsively. It also has a built-in screen recorder, so I can make videos on my Windows laptop directly from the sims I make on the iPad. Of course I can always download the sims themselves from my iPad to my computer, then use another screen recorder to get the videos, but this is easier.

              I also had a great experience with their customer support — I originally thought I needed Apple TV to make it run, but when I asked them about it (I should have looked more carefully at the online help, of course), they responded quickly and politely that AirPlay was already in my device — no Apple TV needed.

              One caveat: when I tried to play the mp4 file it made using Windows Player, the sounds played at the wrong time. This seems to be a problem with Windows Media Player, because when I used VLC, the sounds were synced correctly.

              Great job, Squirrel LLC, I recommend everyone who has an iPad 2 or greater, or iPhone 4S or greater, go get this app!
