Android-Geräte spiegeln mit Vysor

Mit schnurlosen Lösungen wie Miracast oder Chromecast habe weniger gute Erfahrungen gemacht, bricht doch hier recht oft die Verbindung ab. Seit kurzem benutze ich nun die kostenlose App Vysor, um mein Android Smartphone zu spiegeln. A Wonderful Tool to Help Students Easily Design Their Own Games.
