RECENTLY, THE NEED TO SCREEN CAPTURE FILEMAKER GO on an iPhone and iPad became an issue, so I started researching alternatives. It turns out there are several ways to do it. For a great paid alternative, there is a program called Reflector:
Reflector is an AirPlay receiver that allows you to wirelessly display your iPad or iPhone on a number of devices. It’s available for Mac, PC and most Android devices. Mirror your device on a big screen without wires or complicated setups. Play games, watch movies, demo apps or present on the big screen from your iPhone or iPad. With Reflector, everything you do on your phone or tablet is wirelessly streamed to your computer or Android device.
Reflector is an AirPlay receiver that accepts wireless mirroring and streaming connections. It uses technology that’s built in to your computer, iPad, iPod or iPhone to wirelessly display content. Under the hood, it works much like an Apple TV. There’s no complicated set up or need for adapters and wires. Once installed, simply connect your device and mirroring begins. Most newer Apple devices support mirroring and work with Reflector. Find a complete list of compatible devices here.
For those in search of alternatives, check out this MacWorld UK article from May of this year. They delve into ways to jailbreak your phone and look at some hardware alternatives, as well.
A local school system uses Reflector and is very happy with the results, so I will be going with them for my needs.
