ApowerMirror excels in sharing phone screen with PC and empowers users to control Android from the desktop. Available on Windows and Mac platforms, it reads phone screen and cast it to the desktop. Due to the closed iOS system, it can only share iPhone screen but having trouble in controlling. However, it can access keyboard and mouse inputs for operations to control Android. The sound will be seamlessly streamed to PC as long as the device supports Chromecast or Google Home.
For Android devices, it’s suggested that USB connection should be used to activate the program at the first time. Once “Control from PC” mode enabled, it’s alternative to connect via USB cable or the same WiFi. Users can still mirror the phone screen to PC without the mode enabled. With cache cleared or phone restarted, activating “Control from PC” mode again will be necessary before controlling. For iOS devices which support AirPlay, this app is able to stream phone screen as well as audio to PC efficiently.
With this tool, users are able to project the presentations saved on mobile phones to PC in a meeting or lesson. For game lovers, this program provides the superb experience on a larger screen with the help of the mouse. It’s feasible to type SMS or WhatsApp messages by using keyboard.
During the process, users will find it convenient to capture or record the screen with one-click or shortcuts on the keyboard. The files will be saved in the local folder, which facilitates the further operation like sharing or processing. Besides, the display quality and video format can be altered.
