Description

Application to mirror the screen of your iPhone or iPad to any Samsung Smart TV. No wires and no additional hardware needed! You can mirror any app on your iPhone or iPad to your Samsung TV. To mirror video as well as audio, please make sure that you start mirroring when you are in the app (Photos, YouTube, Facebook etc.) that you want to mirror to your TV. This works on any Samsung Smart TV from the 2012 models onward. Which model year do you have? You can see that by looking at the middle letter in your model type (on the back of your Samsung TV). E = 2012 F = 2013 H = 2014 J = 2015 K = 2016 M = 2017 For instance: UE55_E_S8000 = 2012. UE78_H_U8500L = 2014. In using the app, there will be a couple of seconds of latency (usually between 1 and 3). So this mirroring is not suitable for gaming. However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, watching photos, and much more! How the app works: 1. Make sure that your iPhone or iPad is connected to the same local network as your Samsung TV. Don't use multiple VLANs or subnets. 2. Setup Control Centre on your iPhone or iPad to include the "Screen Recording" option. This is how that works: a. Go to Settings on your iPhone or iPad, then select Control Centre b. iPhone only: Switch on: Access Within Apps c. iPhone and iPad: click on Customise Controls d. "Screen Recording" should be in the list of "Include" options. If it is not, scroll down and find "Screen Recording". Click on the green + sign on the left of Screen Recording, to include it into your Control Centre 3. Launch the Mirror for Samsung TV app. It will start looking for your Samsung TV(s) on your local network. When a TV is found, please select it. When you use this app for the first time, depending on your model Samsung TV, the TV might ask you to "allow" the connection. In that case, take your TV Remote Control and press OK to allow the connection from your TV to your iPhone or iPad. 4. We will start with showing you an instruction video on how to setup Control Centre. If you have done that already, click on Next Step 5. Turn on notifications for this app. We will not spam you, but we will use this to let you know if your TV is working correctly or not. So please, please allow it, otherwise when things don't work as they should, you are left in the dark. 6. Now we will open YouTube on your iPhone or iPad to show you how to use Control Centre to start screen mirroring to your Samsung TV. Press "Open in YouTube" to start. 7. After watching the video, try it yourself! Go to the app on your iPhone or iPad that you want to mirror and slide up Control Centre. LONG / 3D Touch "Screen Recording" (NOT: Screen Mirroring!). Select Mirror Samsung TV to start mirroring. Limitations and known issues: 1. Audio - When screen mirroring from Safari, there is no audio. - When you switch to another app, the audio stops on TV. So, you need to start mirroring after you launched the app that you want mirror on TV. 2. DRM Some apps don't allow screen mirroring. For instance Netflix: when you start screen mirroring when running the Netflix app on your iPhone or iPad, the TV screen will turn black. This is a choice that Netflix made, there is nothing that we can do about that. Support: If you have questions or would like to provide feedback, please send us an e-mail or chat with us on our Facebook page. When you like the app, please don't forget to give it a positive rating! Thanks in advance from the AirBeamTV development team! Please give us feedback by mailing to info@airbeam.tv

    Pretty horrible app honestly. I had high hopes. It will stop playing audio after the first advertisement that shows up on any video which lets be honest is like 5 mins in max. Will start playing audio again after you open and close the mirror function. The app works okay but honestly that is such a basic function that the app advertises it does (it doesn’t). Until that is fixed I wouldn’t recommend this to a single person I know. Don’t download this garbage until further notice

    App installed fine, confirmed that it could communicate with my TV, as it sent the demo video to my TV. Although when try long to stream an app the stream button in control center is greyed out and not selectable. Customer service could not resolve and recommended I obtain a refund from Apple. UPDATE: After writing my initial review the app maker replied and told me screen recording was a function in iOS, not there function (which customer service never mentioned). After I was told that I googled the issue and found that if restrictions are turned on screen recording could have been disabled. I found that screen capture had been disabled in my restrictions, turned it on and now the app is working. I did notice audio lag others mentioned.

    I installed the app on three of my devices (on a MacOS device and on two iOS devices) and followed the instructions along with brief guidance from tech support and the product works seamlessly. I would highly recommend it!

    First, let me say: I *never* review apps. I just don’t have time. But I’m making an exception here because I read so many 1-star reviews that absolutely lambasted the developers— and I don’t think that’s fair. This app _works_... IF you take the time to read EVERYTHING and to understand what it’s intended to do. I had no problem finding the disclaimer about Netflix; and given I have a smart TV, I don’t need Mirror Samsung for that. I wanted to mirror my (free!) yoga app so I wasn’t looking at my iPad screen. My choices were $50 worth of cable/adapter, or this $5 app. Totally worth it! Yes, there’s a 2-second time delay— so what?! I turn the volume off on my iPhone app and there’s no issue. I can even change the orientation from portrait to landscape. I walked thru the YouTube video tutorial, and I was up & running. The only issue I had was understanding that I don’t have to re-open the app (that just takes u to the tutorial)— I just have to go into Control Center & activate Screen Recording (NOT Screen Mirroring!). Also that ScreenRecord requires iOS 11 (I think I got that right?), which wasn’t an issue for iPhone 7. I sure hope there are other less-impatient folks out there who will take the time (10 or 15 minutes?!) to try the app, because I’ll be devastated if the developers have to pull the plug on it for the stupidest of reasons. Thanks for creating it!

    This app is a waste of money! If you want to watch yourself scroll around and your tv great, if you want to watch movies from your phone forget about it. I purchased so I can watch things like Netflix, however these apps won’t work and you don’t find out until you are trying to troubleshoot and at they very end of their FAQ is where they tell you apps like Netflix won’t work. Do they provide you with a list of apps that won’t work? No, but they are nice enough to tell you how to figure it out for yourself. And don’t try to stream directly from the internet because then you won’t have any audio. I feel completely ripped off and want my time and money back.
  • Nope.

    Response to Dev: Def not a router issue, I went back to using Smartcast and it runs without concerns. Thanks though! Original post: Worked without any problems for the first couple weeks. Now drops anywhere between 2-5mins in with some weird a## error msg that I can’t get any support with. Wicked frustrating when you’re hosting a game.
  • Does not work and no support.
