Review from Clive Moore
Redfly worked this doesn't, no updstes to fix it either update: 3/4/14 the promise of a bug fix for win8 hasn't materialised. do not buy into this, it may work on old computers, but if you have any computer with win8 on it then forget it. original review Redfly was brilliant, but they have all of a sudden disappeared, and leaving I display as an option. I've tried it out wasted my money as usual, but forwarded bug complaints.. To then find loads of other complainers... Redfly worked first time, and worked well, and but they have now disappeared.... I am now left with 2 apps that I have paid for that neither now work... I have now tried this on both a win and vista 32 bit neither work as you would expect, and are more or less unusable.... Redfly on the other hand worked great on vista 32 bit and win 7.... Just really annoyed I upgraded to win and that Redfly has disappeared.... What other apps can I now waste money on...

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!!!
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.
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.
