How to Use Air Projector:

First, make sure both your iPhone / iPod Touch and computer are connected to the same network via WiFi (cellular is not supported), then follow these steps:

  1. Start Air Projector.
  2. Note the IP address at the bottom (it should look something like “”).
  3. Start the browser on the computer, and type in the IP address exactly, including the port number.

Projecting Photos:

  • Air Projector is designed to be familiar to anyone who has used the Photo app on the iPhone. It can project any image stored in your Photo Library, including the camera roll.
  • Select a photo to project it on the screen.
  • When viewing a photo, tap to toggle the navigation controls.
  • Tap and hold to show a virtual laser-pointer on the screen.
  • Tap on the arrow buttons or swipe to change pages.

Projecting PDF documents:

  • The Full Edition of Air Projector can also project PDF documents, including slide decks exported from PowerPoint or Keynote.
  • To open a PDF file in Air Projector:
    • View the PDF document from Mail or a third party document manager that supports the "open in" function.
    • Tap "open in"
    • Select Air Projector from the list
  • Air Projector doesn't store or manage PDF files directly.

Connection & Sharing Tips:

Server Tips:

  • Air Projector is designed to work optimally with a single computer connected to the same local network as your iPhone / iPod Touch.
  • For a remote audience, use desktop sharing software (such as iChat for Mac), and dedicated online meeting services (such as WebEx) for larger audiences.
  • You can also find the link in Safari's Bonjour bookmarks. Click on the Bookmarks menu -> Show All Bookmarks -> Bonjour. There is also a free Bonjour plug-in for FireFox called BonjourFoxy.
  • If you are running Air Projector on a public or large network, secure your sessions by turning on the "Require Login" switch and specifying a username & password.
  • You generally won't need to change the default port, unless there is another multi-tasking app using the same port on your device. We recommend keeping it at the default 8081 unless you need to change it.
