Description

Application to mirror the screen of your iPhone or iPad to any Samsung Smart TV. No wires and no additional hardware needed! You can mirror any app on your iPhone or iPad to your Samsung TV. To mirror video as well as audio, please make sure that you start mirroring when you are in the app (Photos, YouTube, Facebook etc.) that you want to mirror to your TV. This works on any Samsung Smart TV from the 2012 models onward. Which model year do you have? You can see that by looking at the middle letter in your model type (on the back of your Samsung TV). E = 2012 F = 2013 H = 2014 J = 2015 K = 2016 M = 2017 For instance: UE55_E_S8000 = 2012. UE78_H_U8500L = 2014. In using the app, there will be a couple of seconds of latency (usually between 1 and 3). So this mirroring is not suitable for gaming. However, it is very suitable for watching movies, giving presentations, watching photos, and much more! How the app works: 1. Make sure that your iPhone or iPad is connected to the same local network as your Samsung TV. Don't use multiple VLANs or subnets. 2. Setup Control Centre on your iPhone or iPad to include the "Screen Recording" option. This is how that works: a. Go to Settings on your iPhone or iPad, then select Control Centre b. iPhone only: Switch on: Access Within Apps c. iPhone and iPad: click on Customise Controls d. "Screen Recording" should be in the list of "Include" options. If it is not, scroll down and find "Screen Recording". Click on the green + sign on the left of Screen Recording, to include it into your Control Centre 3. Launch the Mirror for Samsung TV app. It will start looking for your Samsung TV(s) on your local network. When a TV is found, please select it. When you use this app for the first time, depending on your model Samsung TV, the TV might ask you to "allow" the connection. In that case, take your TV Remote Control and press OK to allow the connection from your TV to your iPhone or iPad. 4. We will start with showing you an instruction video on how to setup Control Centre. If you have done that already, click on Next Step 5. Turn on notifications for this app. We will not spam you, but we will use this to let you know if your TV is working correctly or not. So please, please allow it, otherwise when things don't work as they should, you are left in the dark. 6. Now we will open YouTube on your iPhone or iPad to show you how to use Control Centre to start screen mirroring to your Samsung TV. Press "Open in YouTube" to start. 7. After watching the video, try it yourself! Go to the app on your iPhone or iPad that you want to mirror and slide up Control Centre. LONG / 3D Touch "Screen Recording" (NOT: Screen Mirroring!). Select Mirror Samsung TV to start mirroring. Limitations and known issues: 1. Audio - When screen mirroring from Safari, there is no audio. - When you switch to another app, the audio stops on TV. So, you need to start mirroring after you launched the app that you want mirror on TV. 2. DRM Some apps don't allow screen mirroring. For instance Netflix: when you start screen mirroring when running the Netflix app on your iPhone or iPad, the TV screen will turn black. This is a choice that Netflix made, there is nothing that we can do about that. Support: If you have questions or would like to provide feedback, please send us an e-mail or chat with us on our Facebook page. When you like the app, please don't forget to give it a positive rating! Thanks in advance from the AirBeamTV development team! Please give us feedback by mailing to info@airbeam.tv

    I purchased this app so I could mirror the PGA Tour Live app. Works like a charm. At first, the audio didn’t play on the television but after restarting the PGA app, the audio was fine.
  • Only works if you have WiFi not cellular data or Bluetooth

    Very easy to set up but I did have a problem. Contacted support by email received a response with in under an hour. With a list of troubleshooting tips. My problem was (screen recorder) was set to off switched it on.. corrected my problem and everything was working like it should. Before making a review give technical support chance to try to resolve the situation. Below are some of the troubleshooting tips that I received from technical support. First of all Can you : 1. Reset your router (power plug out, wait 10 seconds, and in again) 2. Reboot your TV (power plug out, wait 10 seconds, and in again) 3. Restart your iPhone. After that, Please confirm that the TV itself is NOT in "Screen Mirroring" mode (as a source). Because this actually interferes with our app. Please confirm that the selected source on TV is TV Watching (TV) or any HDMI IN. After the restart, please confirm that the Mirror for TV App detects the TV (Eg: Image attached). Then, Go to your iPhone Home Screen. Then, select the Application which you want to mirror & open the application. (Eg: Gallery) Secondly, Slide up from the bottom of your iPhone to open the control center & force press the "Screen RECORDING Button" (Image attached). Also, confirm that the usage of Screen Recording Button is not restricted on your iPhone. Please make sure by going to iPhone settings > General > Restrictions & enable the Screen Recording Button. When you press the Screen Recording button in Control Centre on your iPhone, please apply some pressure. Apple calls this 3D Touch, we would call it "force press". It's not the feature of the App, but it's an iOS 11 functionality. When you force press it, a pop up window will appear on your screen with options Camera Roll, Face book etc... The pop up window with options can be scrolled up and down and when you scroll among the options, you can find "Mirror Samsung TV". Select the "Mirror Samsung TV" & click Start Broadcast.
  • Honestly, don’t waste your money.

    I also hate to pile on. I didn’t believe the bad reviews because I’m a smart cookie, figured that I’d take my time with it and follow the instructions to a T, and voila!—it would work. It does not. I tried resetting the router, tried troubleshooting. When it does work, the lag is horrific, then automatically breaks connection. I don’t have this problem with any of my other devices. Please don’t waste your money. I’d ask for mine back, but am pretty sure I’ll just get the runaround.
  • App will not stay connected

    Doesn’t work well. When it does connect there’s lag. Only stays connected about a minute at a time. Wanted to stream my movies. I’ll stick with headphones and a little screen
  • It really works

    It really works if you follow the instructions carefully. The only drawback is that its a little slow otherwise it would of gotten 5 stars.
  • Great app!

    YouTube worked, but couldn’t get any other media to mirror onto my TV. Complete waste of money. I’d like a refund.
