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. FORCE Press / 3D Touch the Screen Recording button (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.

App works, you may need to check iOS settings

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.

Hi, an update: we just found out that the Screen Recording button is greyed out by default when the Parental Controls are enabled. You can enable it in Settings -> Tap on General -> Tap on Restrictions -> Scroll all the way at the bottom and turn off the switch next to Screen Recording

Terrible does not work!!!

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.

Hi. If the software doesn’t work in your environment to your satisfaction, you can request a refund from Apple. Here are instructions: http://bit.ly/mac-refund

Totally works 👍

I am reviewing because everyone is freaking out. Turned on screen recording for all apps like it says in the video. Followed instructions and, voila. My workout app plays on my tv. Yay! There is a delay (as they disclose) but doesn’t matter for my purposes.

Pretty cool. I was about to drop money on an Apple TV just to get my workout videos off my phone and on a big screen. This saved me from having to do that!
