Introducing Reflector 3 and Reflector Teacher screen-mirroring receivers

RF3 Twitter Card.png

Today we’re launching two new applications: Reflector 3 and Reflector Teacher. Both apps build on our previous screen-mirroring experience and customer feedback to create refined, faster and more reliable screen-mirroring.


SALE $11.99 →
Regular $14.99


SALE $11.99 →
Regular $14.99

What’s new?

In addition to AirPlay and Google Cast mirroring from iOS, Android and Chrome OS, Reflector 3 accepts Miracast connections. 

These new versions of our Reflector screen-mirroring software are compatible with a new set of devices that were not previously able to mirror to Reflector 2. Miracast is compatible with Reflector 3 and Reflector Teacher on most Windows 10 computers.

Under-the-hood improvements 
This generation of screen-mirroring technology introduces greatly improved speed, performance and stability. Faster connections and a more reliable screen mirroring experience should be expected.

iPhone X Frames
A new display engine allows Reflector 3 to display the edge-to-edge iPhone X screen with a frame.

Instantly take full-resolution screenshots of any connected device.

Windows-Specific Upgrades
On Windows, Reflector 3 is located near the Start button instead of the system tray by the clock where Reflector 2 was located. Connected devices are now visible in a window instead of a pop-up menu. This makes devices easier to locate and manage.

Interface and Experience Updates
Reflector 3 was redesigned for modern operating systems and includes interface updates that make mirroring and managing connected devices easier. Common user actions are easier to find and use.


What’s Reflector Teacher?

RFT Twitter Card.png

Reflector Teacher is an education-streamlined version of the Reflector software that educators use to wirelessly display iPads, Chromebooks and other devices in the classroom.

Since Reflector technology is already used in more than 100,000 classrooms worldwide, it only made sense to create an education-specific version of Reflector.

Reflector Teacher includes:

  • Reflector Student compatibility
  • Reflector Director compatibility
  • Preconfigured settings ideal for classrooms

Other education-focused enhancements are planned for the coming months. 


Get Reflector 3 or Reflector Teacher today!

A seven-day free trial of both apps is available, but hurry, launch pricing is ends soon!

Reflector 3 and Reflector Teacher are regularly available for $14.99 USD. For a limited time, users can receive 20% off their purchase at the Squirrels online store.

Upgrade pricing is available for anyone who previously purchased Reflector 2. Simply open Reflector 2 and check for updates to receive an upgrade offer.

Squirrels Chili Cook-off 2017: The Dethroning of “The Jons”

It seemed impossible to do. Who possessed the chili-making skill that could FINALLY dethrone the “Jons,” and take on the Chili Champion title?


During our fifth annual Squirrels Chili Cook-off, it happened. Connal Kelly, a Squirrels account executive, came out victorious with her chili, Ezekiel Peppers Direct. This is Connal’s first win and her first chili cook-off appearance. Ezekiel Peppers Direct is a simple, yet highly delectable chili with a spicy kick that’s sure to satisfy your taste buds. The full recipe is below. 

When asked what the secret to her success was, she responded, “There were a lot of ingredients.”

Her chili rendition consisted of 27 total ingredients including Bell’s Amber Ale, ground beef, Anaheim chilies and Italian sausage.

Here’s the complete Ezekiel Peppers Direct recipe:


  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 4 Anaheim chili peppers, roasted, peeled and diced
  • 4 Poblano chili peppers, roasted, peeled and diced
  • 2 red bell peppers, diced jalapeno chili peppers, minced
  • 2 yellow onions, diced
  • 1 head of garlic, minced
  • 2 lbs. ground beef
  • 1 lb. bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 lb. bulk hot sausage
  • 3 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons granulated garlic
  • 2 teaspoons granulated onion
  • 2 teaspoons hot paprika
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 2 cups tomato sauce
  • 1 cup tomato paste
  • 12 oz. Bell’s Amber Ale
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 16 oz. can kidney beans
  • 1 16oz can pinto beans
  • 2 tablespoons of cornstarch
  • ½ cup water


  1. Add the olive oil and butter to a large stockpot over medium high heat.
  2. Add the Anaheim chilies, poblano chilies, red bell peppers, jalapeno chilies and onions, and cook until caramelized, about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and sauté 1 minute longer. Remove vegetables and set aside.
  4. Add the ground beef and sausage to the stockpot and cook until the meat is browned and cooked through, 7 to 10 minutes.
  5. Add the chili powder, cayenne, coriander, cumin, granulated garlic, granulated onion, paprika, salt and black pepper, and cook for 5 minutes.
  6. Stir in the beer and cook for another 3 minutes.
  7. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste and stock; cook about 5 minutes.
  8. Add the kidney and pinto beans; lower the heat and simmer, about 2 hours.
  9. After 2 hours if you would like a thicker chili, mix together 2 tablespoons of cornstarch and ½ cup of water in a bowl, combine.
  10. Stir into chili and simmer for another 15 minutes.


Five other members of the Squirrels team also entered their chili into the contest with hopes to get their name engraved on our chili trophy. We couldn’t have made this day happen without the rest of the amazing chilies that are all winners in our hearts (in order from 2nd – 4th place): El Caribe (Nate Wendell), Coup De Grace (Jon Bishop) and Bourbon N’ Bacon (Becky Shiring). Rabbit Food (Mike Bruin) and #NotMyChili (Kyle Gritzan and Jessica Chevalier) tied for 5th.

In addition to the delicious chili, we also enjoyed Fireball Sangria, cornbread, pumpkin chocolate chip cookie dough cups, pumpkin trifle and apple crisp.

Note: The Fireball Sangria tied for third place with Coup De Grace. Yeah, it was that good!

Squirrels Team Attends Georgia Educational Technology Conference

The temperatures are dropping, and that means one thing –  the Squirrels team is headed south for the winter.

Okay, not really. But members of our team are traveling south this week to exhibit at the 30th annual Georgia Educational Technology Conference (GaETC) in Atlanta.

Technology coordinators, media specialists, district administrators, superintendents and more will have the opportunity to learn about the latest in education technology and understand how technology plays a key role in education. And most of all, the more than 4,200 education professionals in attendance can join Squirrels to learn how to easily monitor and manage the wide range of student devices used in their schools (booth 733). Sounds enticing, right?

GaETC is dedicated to professional development of educators and gives attendees access to more than 250 concurrent sessions, nationally-known speakers, workshops focusing on the latest in technology innovations and over 200 exhibitors.
