A couple of weeks ago I reported how to set up iCloud email in Windows 8 mail app. A reader of miApple.me, Lesane, asked where emails, which were sent in Windows 8 mail app or Windows Phone 7 or 8 mail app, could be find on the iPhone or iPad. At first, I wondered myself, but the first idea where to find it is wrong: You will not find your email in the ‘Sent’ folder!
Update: Windows Phone 8.1: Setting Up iCloud Email, Calendars And Contacts
In November I blogged about ‘Setting Up iCloud Calendar in Windows 8 Mail App‘. This could be applied to a Windows Phone 7 or Windows Phone 8, too. But a reader of my blog, Luca, reported problems in adding iCloud calendar to his ‘Windows Live’. I checked my ‘Windows Live / Outlook.com’ account and got the same issue. I got a look into my iCloud subscription in my Google calendar, too, and tried to add my iCloud calendar, but I failed.
I‘ve been using a VPN (Virtual Private Network) with my iPhone and iPad in conjunction with my FRITZ!Box 6360 for a long while. The VPN via a free dyndns.org account (offer of free accounts in the mean time discontinued!) worked perfectly together with my iPhone 4S and my iPad 4 till a couples of day ago.
On 21st of January 2012 I published my first blog post “My First Apple Anniversary on January 21st, 2012!” on miApple.me. It was just a little experiment of mine, but in the mean time miApple.me developed pretty well.
Last, but not least, I tested Shairport4w 188.8.131.52, a small app for AirPlaying music from your iPad, iPhone or iPod touch to the loud-speakers of your Windows PC. In contrast to Airfoil, Shairport4w does not cost anything! It turns your Windows PC’s loud-speakers into an AirPlay device.
Do you have the need for mirroring your iPhone 4S, iPad 2 or new iPad screen on your MAC or Windows PC? Do you want to capture a video of your iPhone 4S, iPad 2 or new iPad screen, e.g. for video tutorials or video presentations? If you answer at least one question with ‘Yes, I do!’ the Reflector app could be the app of your choice. Reflector mirrors an iPhone or iPad screen to a MAC or Windows PC screen via AirPlay and captures a video of your iPhone or iPad screen by demand. Reflector costs $14.99 for a single user license.The company behind Reflector developed AirParrot, too.
After reviewing AirParrot (AirPlay mirroring from Mac / PC to Apple TV 2 and 3) and Airfoil (Airplaying music and sounds from Mac / PC to AirPlay enabled devices and vice versa) on Windows 8, today I tested AirServer intensively on my Acer Aspire 1810T running on Windows 8 Pro with Windows 8 Media Center. It seems that AirPlaying videos and mirroring iPhone’s or iPad’s screen on Windows 8 is a hard job for apps like AirParrot and Airserver. Airserver faces similar stability problems like AirParrot. Both are running unsteadily on Windows 8.
This January becomes the ‘Month of AirPlay’ at miApple.me: Three days ago I wrote an article about AirParrot, an app for AirPlay mirroring MAC or Windows PC screens. At least two further articles about AirPlaying apps are planned. Today I review Airfoil for Windows 3.3.2, an Windows app for AirPlaying music or sounds (!) from a Windows PC to AirPlay Devices like iPhone, iPads,…. There’s an Airfoil for MAC, too. The installation is simple, just downloading and installing as administrator. Keep in mind potential Windows fire wall issues. In my case there were no issues.
Update: AirPlay Mirroring: AirParrot 1.2 For Windows Still Stutters On Videos
Update: AirParrot 1.1.7 For Windows: AirPlaying PC’s Screen To Apple TV Still Stutters
Update: AirPlay: Fixing AirParrot Sound And Video Problems on Windows 7, 8 And 8.1 Preview
I have been looking for an app to mirror my PC’s screen on my Apple TV 3 for a while. The reason for this is the need that I sometimes want to show or explain some people things which are not photos or apple-conform videos.
