    Looking for a way to display/mirror my Nexus 4's screen on my Macbook Air monitor. Once connected, I would like to use JoinMe on my Macbook to show an off-site developer what's happening on the phone. Does anyone know of an Android app or Slimport adaptor setup that would best accomplish this? Most of what I see is for connecting Android devices to a HDTV, not a Macbook.

    Thanks!

    I suspect a VNC server would be the easiest way to do this. Install one of these on your Android phone:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vmlite.vncserver&hl=en
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.onaips.vnc&hl=en
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.schumi.vncs

    And then install a VNC client on your Mac, like this one:

    Disclaimer: I haven't personally tried any of these, but they should do what you want.
