This app is Amazing - Solved so many issues for me

Since I don’t have sidecar on my 2012 Mac mini and I didn’t want to force the sidecar script due to concerns I read online. I needed a creative solution to solve my problem. After reading recent reviews on other apps I wanted something stable. Wow, this app is it!!!!!!!!

I have a small closet that I converted into a soundproof recording booth. I bought this app to wirelessly connect to my iPad Pro so I could record from the room without being in the garage. This app is amazing. No lag and worked better than when I was using the AirPlay display on the smart TV. Saved me A lot of money instead of buying another smart TV just to use when I was recording.

The only thing I noticed was the app would lose connection when I accidentally turned the iPad screen. Simple fix was to lock the screen.

Installation was simple BTW. After downloading the desktop app and giving it permission I was up and running. Literally took all of three minutes.

Works just as well as some of the other wired screen extending apps. You won’t be disappointed.

Additionally it helped me have a second mixing screen for Ableton when working on my 13” MacBook Pro as well.

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!!
