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
Bit rubbish. Can't really believe that this doesn't allow you to duplicate a display on Windows! I get the impression that they couldn't really give a monkeys about Windows and Android and are only really interested in the ios version.
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.
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.
I think most reviews here are by people that do not know what they are doing or buying. This works flawlessly between my Macbook Pro (2012 with Sierra) and my S7 Edge as well as Asus tablet. I only wsh I had seen this earlier.
***WINDOWS USERS BEWARE*** Do not purchase if you have Windows. I have Windows 8 and 10. Every single time I have tried to install the Windows app, when restarting the PC, it crashes. Terrible application. I want a full refund.
