Great functionality & customer service…

when it works. Which is consistently and solidly with a wire. In my case, usb c out of a surface book 2 to usb c in on an 11” iPad Pro.

Over the air is another matter. It doesn’t make great use of available bandwidth AND the app takes a long time to sort itself about before settling in. Even then over the air there are many dropped frames and it’s not really useable.

So my main issue is marketing it as an “air” solution. It’s not great when wireless. Wired? Awesome!

It’s hit or miss for me

I go back and forth with this app because when it’s working, it’s great! I love that I can expand my screen without having to buy a whole new desktop/monitor, and that makes my work more efficient. But when I can’t get it to work, it’s extremely frustrating. I think I’ve paid for the Pro version twice now, and can still barely get Duet Air to work. I have a PC/laptop and an iPad Pro, and wired connection between the two typically works fine. However, I’ve only had the wireless connection over Duet Air connect successfully for me once or twice since I purchased it. I am connected to the same network on both devices and the app is up-to-date on both, but still no luck. I’ve tried resetting, restarting, re-installing, everything. I recently requested to reset my password to be able to log in (because my account is locked for some reason??), but the link they emailed me didn’t even work (it just says that you need to be signed in to access this URL... which isn’t helpful). If I could just stop having issues with this app, it would easily be a 5/5 stars from me!

Wanted to give it a try but nope

You go through the process and sign up but that’s about as far as you go. You need to choose a subscription service before doing anything else. There are a few others I decided to try out first and actually worked so I paid for that instead.

EDIT to developer’s response-at least make it free to try out. None of that subscription or subscription for 7 days. You literally download it, download and install on your computer and then you can’t do anything else except choose a subscription. There are no free features except taking up space on your phone. Don’t make it seem like you are giving users any functions. No functions at all until you subscribe. Waste of time and a lost sale from me.

Developer Response ,

We do understand your point, and we know it may seem like too much, but in reality, the payment for the subscription is due to the wide range of opportunities that Duet can give our users.

This requires a lot of development to support, and it is only for a small number of users, so the only model that works for us is an ongoing subscription. That is why the main app is free to download, and the niche features like Air & Pro are for a small market but more work.
