Yay, Gromit! ,

Looks good so far...

I had been using Air Display on occasion. As my second monitor just died, I fired up AD to maintain some level of productivity. It crashed my MBP. Every time I tried to start it. What a rotten development.
Tried this. Was initially not happy that it reset the MBP display resolution. I had had it at maximum scaled resolution. If I’m asking for more screen real estate, why restrict the resolution that I can use on the main monitor? It turns out it is not restricted, I just had to tell it I still wanted the maximum scaled resolution even when YAM air is running.

So after changing that setting, it all looks good now.
My only complaint is that I don’t see any way to monitor the battery on the iPad when using it as the second display.

Great travel solution

I was wanting an option for using my iPad as a second display while traveling. Having one of the 12” MacBooks I find it a pain to ever connect anything to it via a wire since that means I’m going to have to dig around to try and find an adapter so I decided I would prefer to go with a wireless option. I knew their would be some lag (as there is with any wireless video connection) but was concerned about how distracting it would be. I use it mostly just to have a reference document and do most of my work on my laptop display and found it worked great for my uses. I certainly would not use it for anything like watching videos or gaming. Bottom line... two thumbs up from this guy!!

Best alternative from sidecar ✌️

I used to have an ipad 2017 and used this app with my MacBook Air 2015... It was magical! I was so relieved I didn’t need to settle with an adapter. And so I recently got the new iPad Pro 2020 because all the people doing their unboxing videos made me cave in & come to the dark side... but Bih lemme tell you this app has been a life saver and then some since I’ve been working from home. I just learned that when my MacBook is closed, I can still work off my ipad with the MacBook interface; which blew my mind and hence me writing this review ^_^
