Are you searching for how to mirror Android phone to PC or looking for the best app to let you mirror your Android phone to a PC or laptop? Then I might help with that.
Your search is end here because iMyFone has introduced something special for you. Recently they launched a new app called the “MirrorTo” app that helps you to mirror any Android phone to a PC on both Mac and Windows.
MirrorTo is an Android screen mirror app from the iMyFone brand that lets users share or mirror their Android phone screen to a PC or laptop to access mobile content on a large screen like playing the high-end game, viewing photos or videos, opening and editing documents, or testing messages to someone and everything mirror from your Android phone.
iMyFone MirrorTo app is easy to use even non-techy people can easily use it (I have put some easy steps and tips below to understand and navigate the application).
Android gamers, can use a PC or laptop keyboard to take full advantage of gaming on a bigger screen (I also have added steps for mapping the keyboard in a MirrorTo app).
