iOS: AirParrot is a neat bit of software that adds in AirPlay and Chromecast support to just about anything in OS X. While built-in mirroring options exist nowadays, AirParrot Remote makes that AirParrot software useful again by allowing you to control it from your phone. With AirParrot Remote you can build playlists of different media and control what being mirrored from your phone. You can also control the mouse and keyboard on your computer from the AirParrot Remote app. Basically, it makes it so you can start casting media from your computer, leave the room, then control it all from your phone. It ends up being a pretty nice way to control media that you're casting from your phone, albeit a bit expensive considering it's $10.99 for the iOS app and $US12.99 ($17) for the desktop app. Still, in our tests in worked great, so if this is a niche you're looking to fill, AirParrot does it really well. If you're curious about how it works, 9to5Mac's demo video above walks you through how it works.
