    Clicking anything in the mirrored phone on the computer will perform the actions on the Android device.
    For example, clicking the Google search on the computer will control the device as well. If you enter "typing on mac" in the Android search bar on the Mac, it will also show up on the Android device itself. This might be a good way of making videos of the Android device while using your Mac.
