Whether you want to increase your screen space, enable a secondary display, or just mirror your desktop to other mobile devices, this app can help you out. With the ability to support up to 36 devices connected to your computer, the iDisplay Desktop for Mac promises and delivers an extremely powerful desktop enhancement. However, the app is quite difficult to set up and requires a high level of computer literacy.
The installation of this application appeared to be easy. The app even comes with its own uninstaller so you can remove it effortlessly if you no longer need it. During our testing, iDisplay Desktop for Mac required a reboot and it reset our display settings, which was very annoying. Unless everything is set up beforehand, some settings may also require resets to properly complete the configuration, which makes using this app less enjoyable. Significant time was spent configuring the settings and making sure the connections were right. However, once everything has been set up correctly, iDisplay Desktop performed well and delivered exactly what it claimed.
The high entry to begin using this app may frustrate and deter some users. Once you get it working, however, iDisplay Desktop for Mac offers a useful and interesting display feature for your computer and iOS devices.
Use iDisplay as touch-enabled secondary display: it gives you more screen space for everything you have to keep your eye on. Mirror image from main display on your iPad / iPad mini / iPhone / iPod touch: it comes in handy when you need to share your desktop with your audience. Keep in mind that iDisplay allows to connect up to 36 iOS devices to one Mac. Single-window mode: use iDisplay for one application of your choice. Quickly move selected apps from list of your favorite apps to iDisplay with one click. Zoom and Pan your desktop right on secondary display. Easily switch between portrait and landscape screen orientations: simply rotate your device and it will adjust automatically. Connect up to 36 devices to one computer, select their layout once and use it anytime later. Customize display settings for each device you use as your secondary display, iDisplay will remember your preferences.
