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
USB doesn't work on Nexus 7 (2013) I should have read the reviews. The only reason I bought this was because it supposedly supports USB. *sigh* The wifi option works ok, but I can't hog the wifi bandwidth at a cafe, and that's exactly where I'd use this, so I need the USB to work. (Using app on Nexus 7 Android 4.4.2 connecting to latest 2.3.10 full version desktop client on Macbook Air OS X 10.9) Tried rebooting both tablet and laptop, over and over, it just doesn't work.
WHERE'S THE TEN STAR RATING OPTION?☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆ Wow, I have been looking for an app that lets my device become a monitor of what is shown on my PC! I have never heard of iDisplay and DATTA is very pleased!!!! He had a small prob installing the pc tool but it now works like a charm!!!
Not working Whenever i connect the app on my Nexus 9 to the PC program on Windows 7, I get a message unfortunately the app doesn't work, I think the idea of the is promising but right now I think I will have a refund and maybe later I would pay for it when it gets fixed..
You can use it for couple things. You can store your gadgets, your media players, your picture readers, your MS Word... whatever. It turns your tablet into another USB display.
Works better than expected (At least with Macbook retina running Mavericks) ----->Update: Does not work well with Yosemite. Induces huge lags on the Macbook<----- Looking at the other reviews was a huge turn off but I really needed to use my tablet as secondary monitor. Took the plunge after watching a youtube video about it and was happy to see it worked without any itch. 4 stars because it didn't work with USB cable. For those who see lag, reduce the resolution on Android device.
BSOD on my Lenovo W540 Which sums it up. Can't get started. Spent $4.95 for an app that is a nonstarter. I hope you get it going for my computer too. For now, it's DOA.
