"Mirroring to PC Smoke and Mirrors"

February 13, 2015  |  By douglasjordane

 |  Version: Reflector 1.6.2

Pros

Allows you to see your smartphone or ipod on the bigger computer or tv screen options.
Produces a great infinity mirror effect when activating the video camera on your smart device and then pointing it at the activated Reflector module screen on the big monitor.

Cons

No control from your P.C. to control your smart device on the desktop. (Company claims this capability, but either your PC configuration or smart device will be incompatible or incapable of executing the claim).
No ability to capture smart device files once mirrored on the pc desktop.

Summary

I was really interested in this app. I believe the price is too high. I contacted the company for a discount. They were nice enough to respectfully and promptly decline the inquiry. This tells me that they have some customer care ability. This is a good sign to potential buyers of their product.

The download from their website was troublesome. Being persistent after paying for this overpriced software, I finally managed to get it downloaded and installed on the third try after rebooting my pc.

The connection and recognition of the software was quick and without complication by my iPod Touch 5th device. The iPods iOS is configured with AirPlay technology for these capabilities. I was impressed! This is when the problems started.

Unfortunately, I discovered there was no way to control the buttons of the smart device by my pc mouse or keyboard. I then went into the camera function for my smart device. My iPod camera, incredibly, appeared on the screen of my pc monitor. Great. As I started browsing full screen pictures and videos made with my smart device, I was furthered impressed.

I was quickly disappointed by the blank black screen on my smart device each time I scrolled over a video. The pictures were fine to view though. It was just minutes before that the videos were playing fine. I rebooted my pc, but viewing my iPod videos capability never returned -to my frustration.

After getting this wonderful app for windows 64 bit home edition, I am sad to say that the novelty of the software wore off after the first 30 minutes because it actually did not control my iPod from my PC. That was the purpose of purchasing this overpriced software. For the amount paid for a mirror processor, I was disappointed that there was no practical or compatible functionality.
