The CyanogenMod team recently released a new app called Screencast that lets Android users record the display of the device with audio. You can then retrieve the saved video from your device and play it on anything you want. Though wouldn’t it be nice to be able to mirror your Android device’s display in real time to an Apple TV? That’s where the new Mirror app comes in, it has been released today in beta version and CyanogenMod’s well known developer Koushik Dutta invites people to give the app a shot and report if they find any bugs.
The Mirror app actually offers the best of both worlds, not only does it let users mirror the screen to an Apple TV, but it also lets them create a video recording of their device. Those of you who are willing to try out the app need to keep in mind that your device must be rooted on Android 4.4.2, there’s no need to install a custom ROM though. Then, you must join the ClockworkMod community as well as the beta program prior to downloading the app from the Google Play Store. As always, these apps and communities are absolutely free, you won’t have to pay anything to gain access. You’ll obviously need to have an Apple TV, if you don’t have Cupertino’s set-top box, you might as well wait for Chromecast to receive Android mirroring support.
