There was a time when it became a bit of a running joke to claim that there “was an app for that”, meaning that no matter what it was that you wanted to achieve, the likelihood was that someone had built an app that would perform that task or solve that problem on your behalf. Of course, as things have progressed in the app age, it seems that there really is an app for pretty much everything, a notion that has been cemented in place by the fact that there is now a native Mac OS X app that allow users AirPlay-like mirroring of content directly from an Apple Mac to a Samsung Smart TV without the need for an Apple TV interjection.

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.
