Shairport4w iconThere are a lot of different Airplay apps for Mac and Windows PC. I tested Reflector App 1.5.4 on Mac OS X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion and Reflector 1.2.3 on Windows 8 Pro, AirServer 1.1.2, AirParrot 1.1.3 and Airfoil 3.3.2 on Windows 8 Pro.

Further more, I’ve already reported about a small, but capable app called ‘Shairport4w’. Now Frank Friemel released Shairport4w version 1.0.5.1 on March 5th, 2013.

Reflector App Icon

Reflector App IconSome weeks ago I reported about my findings on running Reflector app on Windows 8 Pro. Reflector app doesn’t run perfectly on Windows 8. So do other AirPlay mirroring apps like AirParrot and AirServer.
Since last Friday I’m a happy and pride owner of a MacBook Pro 13″ (Mid 2012) with a Intel Core Duo i5 2,5GHz processor running on OS X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion. 🙂

Shairport4w iconIn January I have already reported about 4 different AirPlaying apps which I tested on Windows 8: AirParrot, Airfoil, AirServer and Reflector app.

Last, but not least, I tested Shairport4w 1.0.0.23, 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.

Airfoil iconThis 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.
