DO NOT BUY. Worked fine at first, but if you ever have to re-install the software you need to email them to get a replacement key!

Doesn’t work, no video. Use Airserver 7.2 instead.

This application is absolutely stunning! I have been trying to find similar software to compare but I have not yet found anything comparable. This is great, just what I wanted.

The latest version (2.04.3) running on the latest macOS Sierra update crash upon connection from iOS 10.x. Emailed their customer support but there's no reply. Their support forum is a blank screen. Looks like abandonware to me, yet they are still selling the app for USD16! There are better supported products out there. BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK.

PERFECT SOLUTION FOR USING AN OLD MAC AS AN AIRPLAY SERVER FOR RECEIVING THE A/V STREAM


The current version 2.04.3 as of 2017-03 supports the newest macOS 10.12.3 Sierra, until back to OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. Great backward compatibility. If you have no more use for your old device, at least it can act as a secondary display!

Therefore I can use my old Mac running OS X 10.6.8 Sierra as a secondary display for my current rMBP running macOS 10.12.3 Sierra.

Server side (receiving side of the stream): Start the app. Firewall asks you: Allow incoming connections for X-Mirage? Confirm with Yes. You are done! No extra drivers, no restart, no config necessary. It instantly is available on the LAN. If you want you can tweak settings according to your needs (screen size, password, etc).

Client side (sending the stream): Works out of the box with the built-in system features (in the system controls Airplay and Audio you select your destination, where you want to stream to. X-Mirage was properly listed as a stream target. No drivers, nothing. Impressive!

Quality & Speed: Did not evaluate that extensively. But it seemed very ok! Lag almost unnoticable, quality very ok.


With X-MIRAGE I had a working setup in just 1min, and understood it completely after 5min. So different to the competition if you want to connect an old and a new Mac. Before that I spent 4 hours trying out competitor software, which did not work at all connecting the old and the new Mac.

AIRSERVER: It offered downloading a legacy version. But obtaining a trial version was not possible, as the changed the process meanwhile. Tried this and that. It all failed.

AIRSQUIRRELS: Tried their combo of Reflector (server receiving stream) and Airparrot (client sending stream). Airparrot needed to install an audio and a video driver, needed to restart the Mac. Upon connecting from macOS 10.12 with the current Airparrot 2.7 the legacy Reflector 1.6.3 on OS X 10.6 crashed. Tried different version combinations, but all failed.


I don't know whether I will buy X-Mirage, as it is a one time occasion (rehearsal of a keynote presentation on two screens). But should I need it again, I will definitely consider buying it! The least I could do, was to give you a positive review. I was really impressed!

You can do this for FREE from Yosemite and iOS8 if you are happy to use a Lightning cable. Plug in your iOS device and Open QuickTime Player then: Select File menu>Select New Movie Recording... In the window that appears, select the small downward-facing arrow to the right of the record button, and then select your device from the Camera and Microphone selections. You can optionally set your video quality from the same menu. Done!

After a complete new install of OS, x-Mirgae didn´t work. x-Mirage says: "Number of activations execeed". Do I have to contact the developer each time, I install a new os or change the drive?

It did work, until I switched my HDD to an SSD and restored from TimeMachine. Now, my license code is invalid! I support devs and pay for software, but I can't recommend such anti-consumer DRM.

Crap, no longer works with iOS9, have bought Reflector2 after the Mirage team took 3 months with doing nothing to fix this. The screen quality was never really great with mirage, it's far better with Reflector2

Great application when works. Unable to resolve activation issue since September 2014. Numerous emails with support@x-mirage.com with very poor support and no results. Waste of time and money.

Program works well... when it works. Unfortunately, after a while it complained that I had too many activation although it was never used on more then a single machine. Looks like that there are some glitches with activation, Time Machine and backup. As this is software you would use occasionally, if you hit this problem chances are that by the time it is resolved you won't be able to do what you wanted to do. Consider that when you are thinking between this program and competitors.

Been using this app for a while. So far it's the best app to mirror iOS devices on mac, and the record function is a big plus for me

Works really well but only captures in H264. The capture is sharp and the colors are brilliant and accurate. BUT - the developer does not respond. There is one BIG unknown in the app and I can't get an answer out of them. When you render the captured video you have a choice to "access horizontal pixels", access "original pixels" and others . I have no idea what this means and have written numerous times and get NO REPLY. So I may be getting inferior quality simply because they refuse to reply or supply info. As its a cheap app, I purchased 3 licenses, but I am on the lookout for a better one which gives me full information about how it works and also allows me to save in a better quality than H264. However, H264 is sufficient and you don't need to squeeze the best quality out of your videos,, this app works really well and gives really good results.

I also received this free as part of a promotion. It works so well I just now bought it anyway to encourage further development. The price is reasonable for such a useful app. The record feature is brilliant and simple. Perfect for developers recording screencasts or demos and for gamers wanting to share their play. Well done guys. I look forward to new features. A couple on my wish list: * Some ability to see taps (tough, I know) * Sparkle auto updates?!?!

This program does exactly what it states and does it well!! The record function is rather incredible and makes it a powerful piece of software for creating screencasts for iOS devices.

Got this as a free promo and it is definitely worth the price the developer is asking. Flawlessly lets me mirror my iphone and ipad screen to my mac. Very useful app to have….

There are similar programs out there that have the same functions but the fact that it allows me to record its screen is definitely a great plus. Works flawlessly and haven’t so far caused me any inconvenience whatsoever. If you are serious about connecting your ipad/iphone to your Mac this is surely the best choice in its category.

Works like a charm on my Mac mini (2013)! If you use your Mac mini in a living room on a flatscreen TV you don't need the Apple TV longer. Many thanks for your work and great idea, of course. No more restrictions while using ATV. :-)
