Easy to use but quality...

Using this on windows 10 over WiFi. Was very easy to setup. But the frame rate is extremely choppy probably less than 15-20 fps and I have a very strong wireless network at home. You advertise 60 FPS ... maybe only on usb? Which is only for Mac I guess. Duet display works overall a million times better, but sadly duet display conflicted with one of my drivers so I had to uninstall. Was hoping this app would be the answer

Love version 6

I use iDisplay on a daily basis now with my iPad. It's super convenient, lag free, and doesn't really impact my Macs CPU. Most of the time I use it with the lightning cable, but sometimes the WiFi features comes in handy, for example when I want to show something to my colleague, I just take my iPad with me.

Highly recommended!!

Bought it when it first came out, barely used

When this app first came out I bought it right away and used it a little bit. It was vaguely useful for its intended purpose at the time, but its performance could have been better.

Every few years I find myself needing its functionality again but it gets worse and worse. At any given time it might not support standard iPad resolutions, or the performance will be lousy, or it might not even connect at all. And most recently, it caused my iMac to get incredibly unstable just by being installed - the .kext was causing my window server to freeze and my kernel to gobble up all my memory even though the app wasn’t even running!

And their tech support never even responds to messages.

Avoid this piece of garbage at all costs.
