Is anyone here successfully using an app (that doesn’t require rooting) or some other way of projecting the screen of an iPhone, iPad, or Android device to a bigger screen? There are times I want to demo something I’ve been working on to a wider audience. If anyone is using something they can recommend that would be great!

I’ve looked around but so far they require my devices to be rooted and I don’t want to do that and void my warranties and open myself up to security concerns.

Thanks in advance!

You can buy adapters.

iPhone has a mini-display port you can adapt to just about anything: ie:vga http://store.apple.com/us_smb_78313/product/MB572Z/B/mini-displayport-to-vga-adapter

My Droid has a mini HDMI connector which can be adapted to other inputs : http://www.bestbuy.com/site/rocketfish-4-high-speed-hdmi-to-mini-hdmi-cable/3496894.p?id=1218406268404

Thanks for the info but I tried that my iPad, the only thing is when I connect it to my Mac, then what? I tried seeing if I can mirror but no way to figure that out.

Same with my HTC Evo I connect it but only prompted to open/view files, mount as hard drive, import pictures.

I don’t know diddly about Mac products, so hopefully someone else can help you there – but I don’t think iMac’s can be used as an extended display for your phone.

I think you will need a stand alone display – TV or “Monitor” that supports HDMI/Display/DVI/VGA.

It sounds like you are using the USB (wrong port) on your HTC Evo. I think only the HTC Evo “4G” has the mini HDMI port.

For you iPad, check this out: http://www.cellphoneshop.net/hdmiusbav.html?CAWELAID=1226033036

Use airplay or one of the many apps available out there – one I use is called Reflector – no need for cables n’ stuff – you can airplay to an apple tv (mirror mode) and connect apple tv to big screen, projector, regular tv etc. But just for getting it on a mac you can simply use apps.

I’m sure there’s prob one for android to airplay (or something similar) but I don’t have android sorry.

Thank you! I now purchased Reflector and it works great! Unfortunately, for Android every tutorial or app I came across required the phone to be rooted :( damn you Android.
