Needs some updates, Good otherwise

I've used and successfully mirrored my screen to my laptop many times in the past. I typically use this app to stream playing games on my phone to my friends in discord while remaining on my laptop. It does take a little troubleshooting when first downloading the app, but I don't remember anything serious like older reviews suggest. Recently I plugged my phone in to use it. The screen was mirroringly correctly for a second, but stop registering afterward. A few days ago I updated my Macbook Pro to v11.5.2. I suspect this is related. I hope it gets fixed soon so that I can continue using it.

Developer Response ,

Dear user,Thank you for your review, I'm taking notes of all of them.Maybe this is related just to a USB cable or hardware update - just try to connect your phone on another USB port, or with another (original) cable or connect your phone directly to your Mac computer, not via a hub. Also, check in System Preferences that Phone Play has access to your Camera.You can also send me an email to and I will gladly provide you with more details.Regards

Games have serious Lag

I thought I was going to be able to control the phone from the computer which I was not able to do. Your Laptop is just a screen and you cannot control the phone remotely from your computer which is what I was looking for.
