Before using this app, visit the Amazon website and install the (free) Mirror Receiver for Fire TV: http://bit.ly/am-firetv
When using the app there is a small delay of a few 1 to 2 seconds. This mirroring app is therefore not suitable for gaming.
How the app works:
1. Make sure your iPhone or iPad is connected to the same local network as your Amazon Fire TV. Do not use multiple VLANs or subnets.
2. Launch the app. It will search for your Amazon Fire TV(s) on your local network. Select the TV as soon as it is found.
3. Enable notifications for this app. We use this to let you know if your TV is working correctly or not.
4. Click 'Start Mirroring' and start mirroring on the Fire TV. After that, you can just go to another app on your iPhone or iPad and the mirroring will continue as usual.
5. To stop mirroring, there are two options:
A) Click on the red top bar you see on your iOS device.
B) Go to the Mirror for Fire TV app and click on 'Stop Mirroring'.
Limitations and potential issues:
Some apps block Screen Mirroring. This means that application developers can choose whether to block Screen Mirroring. For example, Netflix, Disney and AppleTV+ have decided to block this.
There is a simple test to see if the app you want to mirror has blocked Screen Mirroring:
1) Open that particular app and slide up the Control Center on your iPhone/iPad.
2) Then click on 'Screen recording' and start recording the screen on your camera roll.
3) View the app you want to mirror and stop the screen recording at some point.
4) Then go to your Photos app and watch the video that was recorded.
If the recorded video shows the app you want to mirror, it will work fine. If the video is blank, the app you want to mirror won't allow screen mirroring.
You can purchase the Mirror for FireTV Pro version through an in-app purchase.
The Pro version has the following benefits:
1. Add audio to screen mirroring.
2. Free lifetime updates.
3. Higher screen resolutions, such as 720p and 1080p.

About screen recording and privacy:
Even though there are screen recording notifications, we don't record your screen. And, we don't send content to any server. We only temporarily store data in memory before streaming it to the TV. Streaming deletes the content from memory.
