Sand Studio, the creator of AirDroid, brings you an amazing new app called AirMirror, which allows you to control one mobile device from another smartphone or tablet. However, what’s truly revolutionary about it is that it has cross-platform support. This means that this is the first app in the world that lets users control Android devices from their iPhones.
Yes, you read it right, you can now operate your Android devices from your iPhone. Moreover, you can download it for free.
On the other hand, you do need to have AirDroid running on the target device if you want this to work. AirDroid is free as well but there are paid tiers offered if you use it a lot. Furthermore, it’s quite easy to set up and the target Android device doesn’t need to be rooted. The only thing you need to carry out is a short setup process to connect your Android device to a Windows or Mac PC to enable remote access.
As you can imagine from its name, AirMirror “mirrors” the target device’s display and lets you remotely access that target device. This way, you operate the target device on your smartphone or tablet. If it’s an iOS app, it will allow you to run an Android device on your iPhone.
This amazing new app provides a range of possibilities, among which the most significant are remote assistance, telecommuting, and real-time monitoring.
Remote assistance allows you to, for instance, help your family and friends solve problems on their devices without your physical presence.
Telecommuting is especially important in this day and age, when so many people work from home, bring their work home or cannot be physically present in their office at all times.
Real-time monitoring means that you can turn on the camera on your target device and see what’s going on around it whenever, wherever, making sure nothing out of the ordinary is going on.
AirMirror is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch and requires iOS 9.0. It’s lightweight, only 53.9 MB and has support for 10 languages.
