Works as promised!: I was skeptical about downloading this app for three reasons: 1) it’s new 2) it costs money (and I didn’t trust downloading the free trial from a webpage) and 3) all other efforts to mirror my MacBook Pro to my Samsung Smart TV wirelessly have failed. WOW, I’m glad I took a chance! It was SUPER simple. I downloaded the app, clicked install, clicked open (all within the app store) and then the Mirror for Samsung TV button appeared on my menu bar with instructions on how to use it. By the time I clicked on the menu bar, the app had already detected my TV. All I had to do was select it. BAM. Connected.
It works!!: I’ve been looking for a way to screen share my computer to my Samsung smart TV without having to plug into a HDMI cable. Obviously my MacBook Air does not have an HDMI port and I watched several YouTube videos but without any success. This app totally works and I couldn't be happier! I was only just slightly confused when I launched the app because nothing came up. I reread the instructions and looked for the icon at the top of the screen and followed from there. It was so easy and my tv was listed instantly for me to click on. There is a slight delay in transmission from your computer to the TV but that doesn’t bother me at all.
