Ratings and Reviews
Will not fill MY whole screen - CANNOT use native ipad apps.
Don’t wish the programmer ill will because I am sure he or she worked hard on this - but be aware this app is NOT for serious use if you are a person who would buy an ipad-PRO in the first place. 1. Cannot use YOUR iPad apps. 2. IOS-15 prevents some screen resolutions - so I still got the black side bands. 3. Such a bad user experience that I will not even use this for web surfing. Sorry. Good idea but missing MAJOR functionality. I am an animator who uses Procreate and LumaFusion with NomadSculpt 3D as my use case. I am sure if you do less this will work for you? Just us graphics folk who use the iPad Apps - this is not it. No hard feelings. Continue to shine programmer - I could not do what you do. I will buy the next upgrade again to support your efforts tho. Sincerely Granville.
What’s a Computer?
My old MacBook is on it’s way out, I really don’t feel like shelling out another $1,300+ for a MacBook Pro on top of the money I spent recently on an iPad. I started to toy with the idea of trying to use my iPad full time and completely nix the need for a laptop or desk top, but quickly found that plugging my iPad into an external monitor is a horrible experience (black bars ugh). With some digging I found this awesome app. It allows me to do day to day tasks (bill paying, tracking finances, quick web searches and shopping) on a bigger screen, and with the option to have multiple windows open at once. The Notion app being build in is also a massive plus. Link up a Bluetooth keyboard and mouse and you’re cooking with gas. Complete game changer!!
What this app won’t do is run photo editing apps, video editing apps, etc but 1. That’s not advertised and 2. I bought an iPad so I could use creativity apps with the touch screen. Screenshift is exactly what I want it to be, a bridge between my iPad and my occasional need for a computer. The price tag of $8 is a no brainer as it’s likely going to save me the need to spend $1,300+ on a computer.
If the black side bars truly bother you, then download this app.
This app is not a magic fix for the Ipad’s display issues. That does not mean that it is poorly designed like I’ve seen said in some of the other reviews. It is a fantastic attempt to remove those ugly black bars at the sides of your shiny new monitor, and really the only successful one out there. What you need to understand before downloading this app is that it is a completely separate application of its own. When you open it, it acts independently of the iPads own apps. Shiftscreen has its own independent browser, its own Google docs (which can also be accessed online), it’s own Google meets, its own calculator, its own calendar, and a few other things within the app itself. The option that brings the greatest freedom is the web browser, which can be used to access a majority of what you can’t, within the Shiftscreen app itself.
