What is your preferred technology for demoing an iOS app over Skype/GoToMeeting/WebEx?

I'd like to demo our iOS app (not yet in app store) to someone across the country.

I hold most remote meetings using Skype, but am open to other (inexpensive) technology solutions.

How do you screenshare iOS apps during a remote meeting? What are the pros and cons of your preferred method?

Here is what I will do (because there is no easy option to share iOS device screen to others directly.)

1. Use airplay server ( airserver, reflection, airplayit, ... )

2. From iOS device, airplay mirroring (support.apple.com/en-us/HT201335 )

3. Use any meeting tools of your choice to share screen (skype, hangout, webex support screen sharing)

PS) For free airplay server, you could use airplayer from itools.cn but their website is Chinese version.

You should try AirServer: this turn you Mac or PC to an Airplay receiver. It will allow you to share your iPhone screen in the same time you share your computer screen on skype http://www.airserver.com/ 2015-02-24 18:26 GMT-08:00 Ellen Raynor :

Reflector (previously Reflection) works great.
$13.

The only problem is that the other person can't see where you were pressing. So if it's your app, you can include a library likehttps://www.cocoacontrols.com/controls/mzrpresentationkit (there are several options) that will show where you're touching and that makes it much clearer what's happening.

Get a Mac, install Yosemite OS and connect your iPhone to your computer, then launch QuickTime Player.

Go to File > New Movie Recording and change the Camera to your iPhone.

Voila, they can see your iPhone screen.

This doesn't quite address your question, but someone might find it useful. To show via screen share how your responsive website looks in mobile, use Google Chrome inspector.
  1. CTL-OPT-I
  2. click the mobile phone button in the menu bar
  3. select a device form the dropdown
  4. (re)load the page
This does more than just resizing the screen to the chosen device. It kinda emulates the the device. It might be too ugly for a slick executive show, but it has the advantage that you can quickly show off how your site will look on all kinds of familiar devices.

All: Thanks for posting lots of interesting tools!

Ellen: whichever solution you use, it's really important to know the controls and practice the demo. For
example always say something like 'you should be able to see a screen with an image of a girl' so that you keep the other person with you. Even today some screens paint slowly and there's nothing worse that a transmit only demo where the demonstrator is talking about a screen you can't see!

Good luck.

Thanks all. I started with AirServer and describing the screen throughout the demo. It went well.

Next I will work with my team to experiment with a library to show button pressing.
