“Father, there is nothing more to be done. The steps have been washed for the third time, the stone lanterns and the trees are well sprinkled with water, moss and lichens are shining with a fresh verdure; not a twig, not a leaf have I left on the ground." "Young fool," chided the tea-master, "that is not the way a garden path should be swept." Saying this, Rikiu stepped into the garden, shook a tree and scattered over the garden gold and crimson leaves, scraps of the brocade of autumn! What Rikiu demanded was not cleanliness alone, but the beautiful and the natural also.”

Using Sketch Mirror, LiveView, SilkScreen, Skala Preview, AirServer & others via USB
If you design for mobile, chances are you’re using some tool that lets you preview your designs on your iPhone’s screen (and if you don’t, shame on you : )
These tools use a shared Wifi connection (be it your main wireless network, or an Ad-Hoc network you’ve created using the Sharing preference panel) to which you need to connect both your computer and your device.
However, sometimes Wifi networks are flaky. If you happen to work in an environment with many wireless devices, getting your screen to refresh might be a daunting task. Also, good luck trying to stream video using AirServer or Reflector.
But don’t despair.
Yesterday, after ranting on Twitter about these issues with @pieteromvlee, @alexisgallagher shared a tip that will allow you to connect to these tools via a USB cable.
I’ve tried it, and it works beautifully. AirServer now streams videos at 60fps without a hitch.
What you need
- A USB cable (ahem)
- An iOS device with the “Personal Hotspot” feature enabled
- Enable the Personal Hotspot in Settings
- Connect your phone to your Mac
- Open System Preferences › Network
- Your iPhone should be detected and added to the list of devices. Make sure it’s the last device on the list, so you’re not using your data plan for desktop browsing (you can change the order of devices by clicking on the gear icon, then choosing “Set Device Order…”)
- As an extra (optional) step, you can disable your device’s Wifi connection to make sure you’re using USB.
- Now you can open your favorite tool, and it will work over USB
