Now updated for Monterrey and M1 Macs!
Doing a presentation, but don't want to mirror your displays? Stop looking over your shoulder! Side Mirror gives you a preview window of what's happening on the other display so you can do live demos without having to crane your neck back at the projector screen.
You can kind of think of it as a "VNC for your other display".
Not mirroring your display offers some advantages during presentations:
- Have a set of notes you can refer to
- Keep a list of code snippets to copy/paste
- Keep a folder of presentation files you need quick access to in an open Finder window
- Click through the window to magically teleport your mouse to the other display, exactly where you clicked
Side Mirror is an essential tool for:
- Live Demos
Take Side Mirror for a spin today!
- Fixes an issue where preview scale changes would not be remembered across launches
Ratings and Reviews
Great for Teachers
I'm a history teacher. I present using keynote daily from my mac to an apple tv. I wanted to be able to extend my screen rather than mirror so that I could have my email, attendence/seating chart, ect on my screen at all times while still seeing what was being prestented to students. It does take a little practice to get efficient working this way. You still have to move your mouse over to the extended display to interact with the windows on that screen.
This app works great for what I needed. A few comments said it didn't work with air play devices. I contacted the developer before buying the app to verify this was true. He responded very quickly and let me know the app does work with air play. I tried it in my classroom and it works great!
Simple and powerful
It does exacrtly what it says it does, really fast.
NOTE: when starting the first time in MacOS Catelina there will be a permission request window that appears behind the main window. The app won't work correctly unditl you deal with that permission request.
Great utility app! A must have for public presentations.
I frequently have to project my screen in front of different audiences - up until now I was stuck with either mirroring my display (and having everything 100% visible) or extending my display (and having to turn around constantly and fumble around with the mouse cursor/etc. Side Mirror is great because it lets me keep my personal notes in front of me, and when I move my cursor to work on the other screen, I can still see everything I'm doing in front of me. This lets me keep my face to the audience while i'm presenting. Definitely recommend - a must buy!
