ApowerMirror provides you with two ways of mirroring your screen. You could either connect your mobile device to your PC via USB cable or via Wi-Fi. The latter requires you to bring both devices on the same wireless network. Using a USB cable is generally less complicated and offers greater speeds.

Additionally, ApowerMirror doesn’t just let you perform screen mirroring. You can also use it to control your connected devices remotely or perform file transfers. One particular feature that we found interesting is that you can use your smartphone as a power-point remote control. Furthermore, if you need to perform screen recordings, that’s also possible. Just make sure you use the appropriate option from the side menu. If you want to control your other device from the one you’re currently using, you also need to use the side menu.
It’s possible to change some of the app’s default settings. First thing’s first, click the gear-shaped button in the side menu. Then, from the “Settings” screen, access the category you’re interested in. You can adjust general, display, or capturing settings.
