Ratings and Reviews
Posh price for an unstable app
Plenty to squawk about. Painfully-thin documentation, stalls system-wide playing GoPro 4K claps on Apple TV 4K, crashes itself when screening 4 or 5 SD vids. PC app is primitive, crashes and shuts off Windows’ audio frequently — simply when being moused. Interface suffers from a tiny scrub bar with no jump-back/ahead buttons. Searching, skipping commercials a nightmare. Text only, no poster/album art. Weird green screen jammed up my AppleTV 4K this evening. Rebooted it, and my PC, every 30 minutes or so.
Much happier with FileExplorer Pro on my same system. Tap PC files, iPhone and iPad play/mirror perfectly, full documentation, a grown-up alternative with remote licenses for 6 family members included at a fraction of AirParrot’s price.

Not good for drawing
I was extremely happy with airparrot for my MacBook and when I learned this app could mirror photoshop onto my iPad I was really excited. UNFORTUNATELY the remote is terrible. You cannot tap the iPad for the mouse unless you select over the mouse and drag it to the tools you need. Forget about using any brush as the app doesn’t click/hold at all. Get the original app, skip the remote unless this is fixed.

Hello. Thank you for your feedback. While you can manage and edit your computer's documents and applications using this app, AirParrot Remote was not designed to complement every feature of every desktop software -- especially a software as robust as Photoshop. It's simply an app that offers some unique functionality and remote control features for AirParrot 2. Hope this helps clarify. -- Tom, from Squirrels LLC.
So far, so good...
I’ve been playing with this app for about a half an hour now and it seems to work well. I’ve been using it to navigate my computer, play Sims 4, Tropico, and Orwell. It takes s bit getting used to, but it’s working quite nicely!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
