I wanted to share my Chromebook screen with student PCs. Simple, right? Not so fast. Most choices proved to be unreliable, or incompatible. Mirroring360 is the best solution I have found to wirelessly share a Chromebook, iPad, or iPhone screen with any PC or Mac … I’ll pay out of my own pocket if I must!
