AirServer is a very simple Mac and PC app with a very useful purpose -- sharing your iPhone or iPad's screen to your computer with AirPlay mirroring. Once you install AirServer, your computer will appear in the list of devices available for AirPlay on your iPhone or iPad and when you select your computer, your iPhone or iPad's screen will pop up on your computer screen, just like it would on your television with Apple TV.
I am very impressed with how good AirServer works. There is virtually no lag time and I haven't run into any issues. It does what it claims to do and does it well. You can even adjust settings for audio, which display to use (if you use multiple displays) and optimize for a specific device.
There a 4 different licenses available for AirServer: a 7 day free trial, a standard license for 5 machines, a student license for 3 machines, and one for up to 15 computers. The Mac version includes audio support, but the PC version does not (yet).
If you download the free trial, AirServer will send you a referral link to share with your friends. When someone installs AirServer via your unique link, your free trial will extend by 3 days. (The download link below is my referral link.)
If you pick up AirServer, we'd love to hear what you think. AirServer can be helpful for sharing photos and videos stored on your iPhone or iPad with friends, playing AirPlay compatible games like Real Racing 2, a teacher giving a presentation to his/her class, and much more.
