Customer Reviews

"Lite" version is static, not dynamic

Useful if you aren't expecting the screen you're pushing to the iPad or iPhone is not expected to update… so using it to monitor incoming e-mail or a web-class or something isn't valuable. If what you want on the side-screen is for reference (like reading a static page), and it won't be expected to update, then it's useful.

Does not connect

Spent the $5 to install this app on my iPad and it never connects with my macbook. Both have the latest software and are connected to the same wifi. Their troubleshooting doesn't work. Do not waste your money on this app. I wish I could get a refund
