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....

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.

Best of its kind, just one request

This is the most stable solution for using your iPad as a second display and does it at high resolution and with great performance! However there is one feature that I would pay money to have with this app. If this app could have at least two iPads for extended displays this would be the perfect app! I bought two iPad pros with the hope of using them as extended displays and currently I am achieving this with some combination of duet, Sidecar, and XDisplay, but duet and Sidecar keep freezing on me. And I am not happy with Sidecar’s terrible resolution. This is a great app please bring support for this in the future and I will support this app for the developer’s work!
