AirParrot for Mac version 1.5.4 is now available. This version makes significant changes to our trial period. Previously, the trial was limited to one 20-minute mirroring session every ten minutes. Version 1.5.4 changes this period to seven days and adds a small watermark to the bottom corner of the screen.
We’ve also added a splash screen to help new users register and begin using AirParrot.
Version 1.5.4 changes include:
- AirParrot now has a fully-functional seven-day trial (with subtle watermark)
- Added a first-launch splash screen and registration window
- Resolved an issue that caused the mouse cursor to appear tiny or disappear entirely when mirroring

Playing with friends is even easier. Connect multiple devices and play against opponents in real time—on a bigger screen!
