Secondary monitor not included. It works with iPad as secondary display but you'll need a 3rd party app to use the iPad as Mac display.
3 Display Disaster
I have 2 displays connected to my MacBook, giving me a total of three, and I use a lot of desktops within Mountain Lion. It's kind of a multi-tasking extravaganza. But it can get a little messy sometimes, since re-opening windows can jump displays when I shut down/disconnect. So I went hunting for some tool to provide me the ability to move whole groups of windows not just from one desktop to the next, but from one display to the next. Paid more that I wanted, but it's gotten to be a pretty irritating problem, moving windows one-by-one, so I bit the bullet.
But wow—MAJOR FAIL with this app. Apparently this only works with TWO displays, not three. I guess I should have asked before purchasing. So it's completely worthless to me and I'm told I can't get a refund from the publisher because "we don't have access to purchase information." I'm told I'll have to ask Apple. Yeah, good luck with that. Pretty sure the license information is available to the publisher, and it would have been the decent thing to do to provide me with a little more information to get my money back. Also recommend the Swapp app description include the 2-display limitation. What a big disappointment.
I'm liking this. Great execution of the concept and very useful. With this and MenuPop (check it out ... I have no affiliation with the author) the use of two monitors, particularly in a development environment, is greatly optimized. I am an iOS developer (check out CloudySky) and working with a 27" iMac and a 22" second monitor. Before Swapp I preferred to keep Xcode in the second, albeit lower resolution, monitor so that reference materials, Photoshop, etc., would appear in the higher res iMac display. Now with Swapp, I can convieniently do coding on the hi-res monitor and quickly swap the other stuff back into that display when needed. Nice. Swapp seems to deal with the the differing resolutions of the two monitors well, retaining window sizes pretty well, not perfectly but pretty darn close, between screen swaps. Good job.
Would like option to not resize windows
I'm using a 13" macbook with a 24" external display as my primary and I want to use swapp to send windows to the 13" macbook display without resizing them in the process. I don't see any way to disable the magic resizing currently. It also doesn't seem to be properly interpreting the arrangement of my displays because the windows ends up still partially on my larger display when I swapp it over. I like the concept but it's not working quite right for me.
