First you will just need to open up the program on your PC.
Then, turn on your iPhone or iPad and scroll up, tap ‘Screen Mirroring’ and then tap ‘Apowersoft[PCName]’ to display the screen on your PC. I recommend keeping ‘Auto-Lock’ set to ‘Never’ within ‘Settings’ on your device.

    Is there an app that allows you to split the screen like in a cardboard app and use you're phone with the vr? I'm using a Samsung vr and disabled the oculus service so the oculus app dosnt launch as soon as connected but now I need some sort of way to view my phone

    I have a question.

    I have a vr head set and a phone. But I do not want to play vr games. I judt want to attach my phone and keyboard and mouse and use my phone. I want to word process in vr with google drive, use my keyboard and mouse. But no matter where I go, all that I could find is nothing but only games. I want my phone to be able to have double vision all the time while leaving the vr app. How do I do that?

    Also recommend you enable the "show touch input" on android, you won't be able to see the input until you already touched but it would defensibly be an improvement over being completely blind.

    Ok your video is informative and all but two things.
    1. It took me 10min to figure out the dash menu you have at the bottom is from the Beta UI, and you had to switch to the Beta to get it… You could've mentioned that.
    2. I'm 15 more minutes in and I still haven't figured out how to pin my team viewer window OUT of my desktop

    Hey! It's me from twitter with a question! Seen as you are the most down to earth VR 'tutorialer' I decided that you'd be my best bet. Now I'm wondering if my play space ("2.4m x 2.6m) would be enough for successful room scale. Thanks in advance.
