AirWeb Mirrors Web Browser In Full Screen To TV Via Apple TV AirPlay

AirWeb_logoAirWeb is the first app to mirror a web browser in full screen viewing on your TV via Apple TV AirPlay. iPhone, iPad and iPod touch have built-in AirPlay feature to mirror a web browser via Apple TV to your TV as well.

AirWeb works with Apple TV 2 or 3 and in combination the following Airplay supporting devices: iPad Mini 1G and up, iPad 2 and up, iPad Air, iPhone 4S and up, iPod Touch 5 G and iPhone 4 (requires a VGA/HDMI cable to connect to the TV).
