Review from Timothy Patterson
It works, kind of... I was able to get the software to work as well as possible on the WiFi side. The USB connection does nothing on my Nexus 10 connected to my Macbook Air except crash the adb daemon. Anyone that knows how to dial this in is welcome to contact me. Otherwise it is just okay.
February 25, 2013Sorry for the inconvenience! Please submit us a support request from iDisplay right after the connection attempt, so that we can look into the issue. Faithfully yours, Shape team
Welldone. I can wirelessly extend the display from MacBook Retina 13" to a old-low-performance 8" Galaxy Tab 3 tablet running on Cyanogen Mod 13. This allows me to have my writing tasks and outline window displayed on the tablet while having the word processor open in my Mac. The display resolution scaling of the tablet display can be set from your Mac - just like using additional monitor. The tablet app seems to crash if I set high resolution and high frame rate. Yet, the lowest 6 frame rate setting is acceptable for static images/text and no lags in mouse movement. A hi-performance Android would render better smoother I suppose. Have not checked whether connection a via USB is possible for this mac-to-android setting - if so, then it is a winner against AirDisplay and Splashtop.
Great idea. Works well but wish there was an option to show the desktop screen rather than just extended mode
Has potential but doesn't work in landscape mode on my Moto X pure - resolution 1440x2392. When I start the app in landscape mode (by tilting phone first) screen is distorted and unreadable. In portrait mode, apps not really useable and cursor is very very small. Also - cursor tracking is spotty. PLEASE IMPROVE THIS PRODUCT! It is a great idea. I will try on a tablet but I suspect that the landscape mode will still be a problem.
Using Windows. The auto-detect didn't work but after adding the PC manually it worked flawlessly. For anyone else having trouble connecting, mouse over the iDisplay icon in the system tray on Windows and it will show your PC IP and the port needed by iDisplay to connect. Enter these into the app manually using the Plus icon. Worked like a charm after that.
Used in the past with my tablet, and was fairly happy with it. After my tablet died, I didn't have much use for it. After getting a new tablet for Christmas, I was very surprised to find that USB connectivity had been removed for Windows hosts. Since I use this primarily for my work PC, and the wired and wireless networks are completely separate, I am totally unable to use this software any longer.
Caused Windows 10 crash (black screen) on restart after 1st use. Change to display adapters caused RAM issues in Photoshop (& crash caused Library file errors). Had to run System Restore. Initially worked great via wifi. Issues seem to be with the driver/server on the PC side. A great concept poorly (or too broadly) executed. Bummer.
