Review from Odobenus Rosmarus
Works barely Would be great if it worked what a waste of money I want a refund I started it up to use as a third monitor but it messed up the second's taskbar and the one on my tablet was slow. The usb connect doesnt work, like I said I want a full refund probably wont get it though I wont be buying from this company again.

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.
Windows 8.1, 2_5_0_12_beta driver, Tab S 8.4 Worked first time no issues, and then needed to allow developer options and debug mode after it stopped working. Even on fast streaming and half the official device's resolution is a little bit laggy - can see that the display rendering is PC CPU bound. Question to the devs - would it be possible to set it up so it continues running/streaming in the foreground, but allows the device to lock based on it's normal device timeout in the background? That would allow the streamed output to be "locked" once the PC does, without running the risk that someone will hit the home button or app switcher and gain access to the device itself.
