AirParrot Remote: A Tool For The Living Room

Couch-Potato-2

AirParrot Remote is a couch potato’s dream. It takes being lazy to a whole new level by giving you the full list of AirParrot 2 features and controls on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. That’s right. Leave your computer on the desk where it belongs because you don’t need it beside you to mirror your computer or stream songs and videos to your TV anymore.

Screen mirroring and streaming your computer to your big screen TV has always been cool, but was it convenient? It is now.

Without AirParrot Remote
Without AirParrot Remote, lounge time is constantly interrupted. Each time you want to stream or mirror something to your TV, you need to access your computer. So your laptop must be sitting by you on the couch, end stand or pillow. We cringe thinking about the brightness in your peripheral vision.

If the computer isn't beside you, then you have to get up and walk to it.

Ugh. Talk about ruining the vibe.

With AirParrot Remote
Open the AirParrot Remote app on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch. You will be able to control the AirParrot 2 software running on your computer no matter where the computer is located in the house. AirParrot Remote allows you to control your computer’s mouse and keyboard from your phone. So, not only can you begin mirroring your computer display and select media files to stream, you can also open a document, view it on your TV and begin editing it from your phone or tablet. Crazy, right?

Goodbye, nightmares
Do you know what couch potatoes have nightmares about? Effort. So we used AirParrot Remote as an opportunity to add playlist support to keep things ultra easy.

Previously, AirParrot could only stream one media file from a computer to Apple TV, Chromecast or AirPlay-enabled speakers at a time. Now you can use your mobile device to create large playlists full of songs and movies you’d like to play in order. Minimal effort. Optimal relaxation. You’re welcome.

For all the couch potatoes
We all have our couch potato moments. Things should be easy when you’re in couch potato mode. AirParrot Remote does just that – it makes life easier! It brings control of AirParrot 2 to your phone or tablet so you can begin streaming and mirroring your Mac or PC without ever leaving the couch.

Learn more about AirParrot Remote. You can purchase this iOS app in the Apple App Store ($6.99).

Note: Make sure you have the most recent AirParrot 2 update running on your Mac or PC to ensure compatibility with AirParrot Remote. The latest AirParrot 2 update is free for current AirParrot 2 customers. If you do not already have AirParrot 2, it costs just $12.99 in our online store.
