Review from Kit Chung
Win8 only mirrors, videos doesn't stream This can be handy if your configuration is 100% compatible. Too bad there's no trial edition. The company acknowledges that it only mirrors (not span) on Win8 with "certain hardware configurations"; I think the cause of my problem is an AMD GPU. Works fine under win7 except videos doesn't stream if the video is 100% on the Android device; it'll stream if part of the video window is on the computer's screen. For USB to work, you'll need to enable ADB debugging and ADB drivers must be installed and working on the computer. Update - Windows v.126.96.36.199 still doesn't work in Win8 and Shape Support claims Win8 support will come in May 2013.
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.
Do Not install this app. This app does not work. I downloaded this app on my surface 3 and it would not open, It also did not want to connect from my phone to any other computer. Phone tried to connect but never did. Want my money back
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.
