Have you ever wanted to stream something from your iPhone or iPad to your Mac? AirServer is an app for your Mac (or PC) that allows you to AirPlay to your computer. You can stream music and videos (Mac), or you can use AirPlay mirroring to view your device's screen on your computer.
Using the app is so simple it's ridiculous. You simply install it on your computer and let it run. The next time you pull up the AirPlay menu on your iPhone or iPad your computer will show up as an option. It just works!
I found AirServer's performance to be stellar. There doesn't seem to be any lag , or at least no more than you would notice on your Apple TV. Streaming music and videos works very well. AirServer is my new favorite app!
AirServer offers 4 different licenses available. You can download a 7 day free trial, purchase a standard license for 5 machines for $14.99, a student license for 3 machines for $11.99, or a 15 computer license for $59.99. PC versions of these packages are cheaper for some reason.
The Mac version includes audio support, but the PC version does not. Hopefully they will add audio support in the future.
