DisplayOut: Jailbreak App Brings iPad 2’s Video Mirroring Feature To iPad, iPhone 4 & iPod Touch 4G


DisplayOut - Jailbreak app

One of the new features introduced in Apple’s second generation iPad is video mirroring, which allows users to mirror slides, movies, photos or everything else that they see on the iPad 2 screen to a widescreen TV, video projection screen, or any HDTV compatible display using Apple’s new Digital AV Adapter accessory.

If you were disappointed that mirroring is supported only on iPad 2 then we’ve some good news.

Jailbreak app – DisplayOut brings iPad 2’s mirroring feature to the iPhone 4, iPad and iPod Touch 4G. It is developed by Ryan Petrich, developer of popular jalbreak apps like ProSwitcher, Rotation Inhibitor, DeepEnd, Clippy etc.

It comes with the following features:

  • Mirrors screen on connected monitor, projector or television.
  • Detects orientation and connectivity
  • Supports game and video content
  • Customizable zoom and aspect ratio

We just played iPhone gamesTiny Wings (currently the top paid app) and Real Racing 2 by mirroring an iPhone 4’s display to a TV using Apple’s Component AV cable (and iPhone 4 also works as a wired controller) and it worked flawlessly.

DisplayOut costs $2.99 on the Cydia App Store.

It’s quite a useful app if you’ve jailbroken your iPhone 4, iPad or iPod Touch 4G and a video cable for presentations, gaming etc. Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
