Koushik "Koush" Dutta has indeed been very busy with his pet Android projects, particularly those that involve pushing screens around. Now the developer, who is also working on CyanogenMod and ClockworkMod Recovery among other things, has just announced a beta version of his Mirror app for Android that will let users push their Android screens to their Apple TVs.

Koush has been hard at work on various display applications for Android and CyanogenMod. In particular, he has worked on a Remote Display Framework whose power is now being demonstrated through various apps. On Monday, Koush announced the beta version of the Screecast app for CyanogenMod, allowing users to easily create screencast videos on their devices running the popular ROM.

In a way, this new Mirror app combines those features into a single package. As mentioned, the primary feature of the app is mirroring your Android device and sending the screen contents over to an Apple TV. An added feature, however, is that it lets users also make video recordings of their Android screens, exactly like Screencast. Below is a video demonstrating just how fluid the mirroring of the Android screen really is.

Mirror for Android doesn't require running CyanogenMod but it has other requirements. As always, interested users need to join the a Google+ community, this time ClockworkMod's, and joining the beta to get access to the Google Play Store page. Mirror also requires a rooted device, but Koush is working on a way to get it working without root as well.

    The fact that this app is useless for chromecast is quite frankly funny and infuriating at the same time. Google phones do a better job of casting to an Apple device than it does to its own tech. Go figure. 😉

      This is a day 1 experiment… He has not even tried to use chromecast yet. And google will enable it natively, no root, to work with the chromecast soon. This is an early access hack. And BTW the APIs that its using are design by google, and they work “almost flawlessly”
