Squirrels in Action: Reflector and UX testing

Barry Briggs, user experience consultant, featured Reflector on his UX Blog earlier this month. 

In three separate mobile usability tests, Briggs used  Reflector for iOS screen mirroring to send video to his Mac.

He incorporated other software for added functionality:

  •  Silverback, a guerrilla usability testing software for designers and developers to capture his desktop
  • iSight audio and video 
  • A device-mounted webcam to capture the user’s hands and screen interactions

Check out Barry’s post for more video demos of Reflector in action,  and his blog for more UX testing and tips.

Slingshot for Android

When we launched Slingshot on May 1, we originally planned on releasing Slingshot for Android. We delayed the Android release to allow more time to make sure Slingshot worked great across all kinds of Android devices.

We’re now happy to announce Slingshot for Android!

Slingshot for Android has all the functionality of other Slingshot clients, but it’s not currently possible to share Android device screens. View screens, share files, collaborate with Meeting Minutes and more! Check out Slingshot for Android on Google Play.
