Acer eDisplay Pro App

The Acer eDisplay Pro app is currently one of the most interesting apps on the market as it supports the MWA3 MHL dongle in addition to the traditional wireless dongles. Thus a huge range of Acer projectors with MHL-able HDMI connection can be equipped with WLAN. Compared to the WLAN solution via USB dongle, the possibility of use is even greater thanks to the many functions of the MWA3 dongle. The eDisplay Pro app itself is able to play various formats, including PowerPoint, Word, Excel and PDF files along with the formats used by Apple for Keynote, Pages and Numbers. You can also send a live feed of the camera image of the iDevices to the projector. Also films, e.g. in MP4 format can be played through the app. In addition, there is a split screen function, which can present up to 4 users simultaneously on a split screen.

BenQ QPresenter HD

The BenQ QPresenter Pro app offers a variety of supported formats and convenient features. Supported formats include PowerPoint, Excel, Word, and PDF. The same applies to pictures in JPEG format. There is also a handy camera function that projects the live image of the iDevice camera and you will also find Dropbox support. Thanks to a marker function,content can be highlighted during the presentation. Control of the projector menu is also possible with this dongle. Since some BenQ projectors can be retrofitted with a WLAN dongle, the function may also be interesting for older devices. The currently compatible devices will be displayed on the iTunes website.

MobiShow App

The MobiShow app has long been established as a presentation app. Therefore it is used among others by Acer and Casio. However, this mainly applies to older devices from these manufacturers as today they increasingly rely on their own apps. The playable formats of MobiShow App are comparable to those of other manufacturers, but the ability to reproduce MP3 and AVI formats is a clear added value. Currently, the number of projectors that work with the MobiShow App is limited.

WiFi-Doc App

The WiFi Doc app is supported by some Optoma Projectors. The compatibility of the devices with the app is shown on the respective device data sheet. The functionality of the WiFi Doc App is slightly lower compared to other apps. It is mainly designed for the office area and therefore, supported formats include classic programs such as PowerPoint, Excel, and Word. Pictures in JPEG format and PDFs can also be shown via the app.

Panasonic Wireless Projector App

The Panasonic Wireless Projector app is supported by a manageable number of compatible Panasonic projectors, some of which will have to be equipped with a WLAN unit while others already have it built in. The application offers good compatibility with file formats such as PowerPoint and Keynote, especially for presentations. PDFs and pictures can be presented from the app. The iDevice built-in camera is also supported for a live feed which gives you a kind of overhead projector function, which is useful when presenting objects and printed texts or books.

ViewSonic vPresenter App

The ViewSonic vPresenter app is similar to the Acer eDisplay app. To use the app, the optional ViewSonic USB Wireless Dongle is required. Therefore, the number of compatible ViewSonic projectors is somewhat limited as they require a USB port for this purpose. It supports PowerPoint, Excel and Word files along with PDFs and pictures in JPEG format. The live view feature of the iDevice camera allows it to perform as a kind of overhead projector. Marker and split screen functionality can also be found.

Epson iProjection App

The Epson iProjection app allows you to connect directly from the iPhone or iPad. It offers a very large compatibility of usable formats. A big advantage is the large number of projectors who can work with the app, as the majority of Epson projectors can be retrofitted with a Wi-Fi connection. The simple interface of iProjection App is very appealing.
