Hey, I'm Skylar. If you wanna show your iPhone screen on your computer, the easiest way to do it is with Reflection. So, if you go to, you'll see where you can download the application. Once you've downloaded it and installed it, just launch it, and all you have to do is have it running in the background. On your device, press the home button and slide to unlock. Double press the home button to bring up your multi-tasking tray, now swipe to the right twice and you'll see your Airplay icon. Tap your Airplay icon and then tap the name of your computer. It'll immediately start streaming what's on this screen on your Mac desktop. It's really cool. Now, my iPhone is an iPhone 4, and this application doesn't work with this because it's not fast enough to stream that information, so I'll demonstrate how it looks if you do it on the iPad. The process is exactly the same. Tap Airplay, tap the name of the computer and tap mirroring. As soon as you tap mirroring, the screen appears on your Mac and you are now showing the same image in both places. So if you have to demonstrate something for a group of people, or do a presentation, Reflection app is probably the best way to do it. Thanks for watching! I'm Skylar.
