Ratings and Reviews
Works Great; better than Duet
This free version is fantastic. You get the same experience as the paid version, except for an interruption every 7 minutes, which is the perfect amount of annoyance that if you really can't afford to pay it's still totally livable.
I've also used Duet display, which is more expensive than even the paid version of this Yam, but Yam is much better. Yam has more resolution options, moderately better performance, and support for split-screen multitasking on supported iPads, a great feature that Duet lacks.
If you don't need to use this with windows, I highly suggest Yam over Duet.
5 stars for a free app that does what it says!
I'm mainly reviewing this app to see if it gives more time on sessions like it says. I am probably going with another higher renowned app for this if I do end up having to purchase. I thought it was against Apple's Section 2 to give perks or compensation for app reviews, but your wording did say that I could do this "If I liked the app" so it's probably legal at least lol. It's a good app though! 7 mins isn't long enough to tell you how well it works but I'll leave another review should I love it.
Works well enough
I've just tried it for a bit, the app prompted me to review it or buy it, so I'd say it works pretty well, I'm using a Macbook Air 2015 with an iPad Air 2, a recommendation for those with similar products: run it in the 30 FPS power saving mode rather than 60 FPS as I found that 60 FPS was quite laggy on the iPad. Also, there is quite a bit of lag when opening Mission Control, but if you can stand that or don't use Mission Control often it should be good.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
