Great way to upcycle my old iPad

<Troubleshooting for Windows 10 detailed below>

I've got a 2nd gen iPad that has been collecting dust for years, as many new apps are not compatible with its antiquated version of iOS. One day, I got the idea to start using it as a second monitor for my Windows 10 laptop, and the results have been great. After some initial troubleshooting (details below), I have been very pleased with this FREE app that allows me to continue using an otherwise obsolete iPad and saves me the cost of buying an external monitor. A huge boost for productivity and big savings for my wallet and the environment!

My only complaint is that the app did not maintain a connection with my PC using the default settings. It would disconnect about every 30 seconds. An online forum suggested going into the program files on my laptop and adjusting the compatibility settings for the laptop software. After switching this program to Windows 7 compatibility mode, it has been working flawlessly on my Windows 10 laptop.

Thank you for this great app!

Works a million times better than Duet when using premiere pro on windows 10

I suppose duet is still more technically better than XDisplay; it uses less CPU on my laptop, runs at higher resolutions at better quality and smoother frame rates. However, whatever technical wizardry the duet team came up with crashes my computer whenever I open premiere pro, which is pretty much the only software I’d want to use with an iPad as a monitor. XDisplay is leagues better than Duet in this regard, since it actually “works”. At a lower price than nearly every other competitor and the most reliable app for this use case that I’ve used so far, I have to give it a 5 star review. I do hope it’ll receive some updates to make it run better and at less CPU usage, but I’ll take a reliable second monitor over 10% extra cpu headroom any day.

Some requested features:
Give us the option to turn off the touch screen. I’ve already turned off the touch screen in device manager on win10 through disabling the “HID-compliant touch screen”, though it’d be better to have this in app.

Why does the app behave as if it’s locked in full screen? On a 3rd gen iPad Pro, this means you have to swipe at least twice from each edge in order to activate their respective functions. Pulling down the control center, swiping in a slide over app and pulling up the dock are all much more difficult to achieve due to this implementation.

So far, so good...

Was considering the other major player in this field, but it costs $20. For $2.99 I figured it was worth a shot. Seems to work great - somewhat delayed response with my mouse, making it a little clunky to use. Also, the iPad Pro screen is pretty shrunken making it difficult to read/use. I may try messing around with the resolution and settings, but making such adjustments within the app does not seem possible. Based on my experience, this app works for Windows 10 PCs and is definitely worth $2.99 if you are used to working on two monitors....
