 How to get on a big screen?

 

Playing Lusio games on a big screen can be more fun, there are several ways to have them on TV, but it depends on what smartphone you are using:

 

 

  •  Apple phones (iPhones and iPads)
1 - (Recommended) Wired connection using a Lightning HD TV HDMI AV Adapter Cable

2 - Wireless connection using AppleTV

 

  • Android smartphones:
(this includes Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC, Alcatel, Huawei, Xiaomi, Nokia, Motorola ... Well, it means all but Apple phones!)
1- (Recommended) Wireless connection using Google Chromecast
This is a really good option, Chromecast is affordable (less than $60AUD) and it's very easy to use. The way it works is it just projects whatever you see on your mobile screen on to your TV, very simple! The only point is you need to use a Wi-Fi connection to connect internet and Chromecast (so wired connection or mobile hotspot don't work)
There are other Wireless casting devices on the market as well, We haven't tested them so we don't know if they work well with Lusio games or not. If you try any of them and are satisfied, let us know to recommend others :)  
2 - Wired connection using MHL Cable or SlimPort cable
Nearly all TVs have the HDMI input and all smartphones have a USB port, so technically we just need an adapter to connect USB to HDMI.MHL and Slimport are designed to do this for us. But there are limited models of phones and tablets on the market that actually support these technologies. so before buying a Slimport or MHL cable, be sure your smart device supports it (Check here for MHL and here for Slimport).
