Review on X-Mirage for Windows 220.127.116.11:
X-Mirage for Windows 18.104.22.168 works seamlessly for standard use (photos, music videos, iOS home screen, web browser ) on my Acer Aspire 1810T running on Windows 8.1 Update. However, both playing YouTube videos and iTunes Movies and TV Shows does not work at all. This is the same to the alternate AirPlay mirroring apps like Reflector and AirServer. Furthermore, if I try to play games like ‘Real Racing 2 HD’ on my iPad Air, there is a time delay of about 10 seconds and the screen is not split, just mirrored. Reflector app is working significantly better than X-Mirage.
X-Mirage for Windows is a iOS AirPlay screen mirroring and recording app, comparable to Reflector app and AirServer. Like most AirPlay mirroring apps on Windows PC, X-Mirage has a problem with performance consuming jobs like playing movies or games. Hence, my favourite AirPlay mirroring app is still Reflector app: Reflector app is running steady on Windows 8.1 and another advantage of it is the existence of AirParrot. AirParrot enables you to extend your Mac’s or PC’s screen together with the AirPlay receiver Reflector app.
