Amazing app !
I normally don’t bother writing reviews for any products I use. But this definitely deserves one. I am currently teaching virtually to a group of students. It’s my first time doing so. I needed a second monitor, one I can use for teaching virtually. I tried using Duet. It wouldn’t work, no matter how much I tried. I paid for the app and membership, still wouldn’t work. I gave up trying. I was suggested to try this app. I was cautious, since I didn’t hear anything about it. After using it for an entire month, it’s definitely the best app I have come across. I am surprised it’s for free! The app is amazing. I really can’t think anything negative about it. I do wish there was a way to connect to iPad using a wire instead of the network connection. Other than that, I can’t complain about anything else. Thanks again for making this app. It was a game changer for me at work.

So much better than Duet
I moved from Duet because their software broke my computer. I had to restore it because Duet disabled my dedicated GPU and it wouldn’t work even after the app was uninstalled. SpaceDesk is less intrusive, free, doesn’t require an account, and works better than Duet. The only issue with this app is that you lose connectivity when you trigger the Notification Center or when you receive a call (if you have hand off enabled). Minor issues that can be fixed via a software update. In the time being I highly recommend SpaceDesk.

This App is A Beast
I use An IPad Pro 2020 This app truly delivers giving you ability to play Steam Games like Sonic Adventure without any major issues the frame rate was pretty stable, I Especially enjoyed This For Drawing in Clip Studios Thank you so much for the Apple Pencil support it was easy to navigate and feels good. Last but not least I Love being able to Listen to my ableton tracks from my iPad my only request is to able to pinch and zoom the screen other than that this app is flawless ✌️👍

Best Duet Display Alternative!
This is a fantastic app! I was very disappointed to discover that Duet wanted to charge a monthly subscription for a display app; that’s extremely predatory, subscriptions are the bane of my existence and charging continuously just for screen utilities makes no sense. This app does everything that Duet does and no subscription fees! I would love to see wired connection support in a future update. As long as you never charge monthly subscription fees you have my full support!

Honestly, this is awesome, without wires and most it’s free. I would even have paid for this software. I dislike the fancy flashy alternatives in the market who try to rip you off with monthly fees… Great Job! Very happy using my iPad as a screen for my Windows devices. It even works as a touch screen.. how awesome is that!! Thanks again to the developer!! Nice! - Only suggestion: if you allow mouse control why not also to add a virtual keyboard so potentially I could make some small inputs…

Works So Much Better Than Expected
I really didn’t expect much from this app without paying a ton for it and I’m so happy with it. I use it for a lot of random things when I’m ready to curl up in bed but play a chill game (the latency wouldn’t work well for fast paced games probably). I expected to have to mess with resolution settings and whatnot- and maybe it’s my pc that does it so smoothly- but it seamlessly swaps to the correct sizing to look nice and crisp on my iPad.

Great Work
I love this app as it fulfills my specific needs of a separate monitor, but the latest update has broke it completely and I’m unable to use it as I did before. I’m on iPad OS 13.3.1 and my screen alignment is weird (it’s on a smaller vertical screen on a horizontal display). The app crashes a lot and I’m unable to use it properly. Please fix this issue as soon as possible. Update: Problem fixed in a day! This app is great.

Love it!!
For those of you scrolling through comments I will help you. When setting up right click on you background on the server computer and a menu thingy pops up. Next what you need to do is to go on display settings. There an option in display settings that says multiple display then you click extend these display for a longer display. Love it keep it up.

Works as Advertised!
I don’t usually write reviews, but this is amazing! All you have to do is install a small program on your pc and this app! I was able to use my iPod touch as a second screen, or in my case more like a remote so I can do things while around my house. I don’t have a keyboard or mouse to test out that feature, but with the way this went, I have no doubt it would work. There are a few things I might consider adding: 1. Sound to the client device. 2. When using the touchpad mode, a way to send a right click. 3. Perhaps a way to use the built in iOS keyboard to send text to the server device. 4. Gestures for touchpad (Although by the sound of the description that is already in the works). Keep up the great work!

Great app.
It does what it is supposed to. And it does it for free!!!! However i found it unintuitive that after initial connection, It makes the iPad screen as the primary screen. So I had to fool the computer to think that the slave screen is the primary screen which is my actual computer. In essence all the icons went on the iPad originally. Also the screen shows up on the left of the original. Again unintuitive for everyone that has done the HDMI connection to actual monitors. I have a sneaky suspicion that this is why the ipad became primary. The 3 changes that would make this app perfect, are: 1. Fix the primary screen issue ( unless i am missing something) 2. Make the slave screen on the right, not left. 3. Make it possible for wired connection. And the last one is my most important issue.

Request for MacOS support
Currently, only Windows PCs are supported. I'd like to request for MacOS PCs to also be supported as the primary machine (display server). I know this would be a considerable amount of development work. Other solutions like sidecar, duet, and wiredXdisplay, don't feel as stable as spacedesk does with Windows, so I'm hoping it would be possible to bring this awesome stability to MacOS machines. Thanks for reading!

Free - does the job!
I like it. there are some recommendations I would recommend to make on this app 1)is improve the latency it sometimes feels sluggish 2)can improve the connectivity time 3)it sometimes loses the connection we can provide a time limit for the connection to timeout after which the iPad can lock the screen

Better than Duet
Definitely glad I found this app (though I wish I had found it before spending $10 on Duet Display). Could be my personal setup (Core i7 laptop circa 2018 and an iPad Air 2 connected via Lightning), but I get much better performance from Spacedesk than I did Duet, and it’s free. Would highly recommend to anyone interested in turning their iPad into a second monitor.

Didn’t work well for me
I have been using Duet Display and wanted to check this product out since it had high reviews. I uninstalled Duet and installed SD. The first problem I ran into was the incompatible Hook driver (left over from Duet). The good news is that Datatronic had good support info on how to fix this and I was able to do that quickly. Once the product was working properly I was disappointed to see that I could not adjust the resolution on the iPad. At 1024x768 it just didn’t look that good. It would not take input from the iPad keyboard as Duet will. This is not a show stopper but it is a useful feature of other products. If you are ok with the lower resolution I this light be a good choice, the price is right. When there’s an update I’ll revisit this product to see if it’s improved.

Worth it for being free
This application is easy and great to use. But it’s worth it for being free, the latency can be a *little* of but its not noticeable most the time. I highly recommend it for monitoring extra things like hardware temperatures while not wasting the money for another expensive monitor.

better than duet, and FREE
At first i was a little skeptical. I first used the Splashtop XDisplay and didn’t really work the way i wanted it too. Then I stumbled upon this. I saw good reviews so I went ahead and tried it. The app was exactly what the reviews wrote. I am completely satisfied with this app and when WAY beyond my expectations. 5 out of 5 stars easy.

Amazing app
This is such a useful app, works flawlessly. It’s crazy how low the latency can be, I genuinely think I could play a competitive shooter in bed i I wanted to. But as for practical uses, it lets me use my tablet as an on-the-go drawing tablet, it’s great!

Display number issue
Predicament: My laptop is display #1, I then connect it to my microsoft display adapter on the tv, making that display #2, then I connect my phone using spacedesk with the intent of it becoming display #3. Instead, spacedesk becomes #2 and my tv turns into #3. I would like this issue to be fixed as it causes some problems when going fullscreen while using VLC player.

so when you download the app on your pc, it always runs in the background with no way to turn it off. It’s always there on startup. So I tried going into my settings and turning it off there. WELL, this has the unfortunate side effect of disabling MOUSE AND KEYBOARD INPUTS. I CANT EVEN USE MY MOUSE AND KEYBOARD ANYMORE. I CANNOT LOGIN TO MY COMPUTER. I even tried booting it in safe mode and system restoring. Nothing works. My entire PC is now essentially bricked until I can figure out a way to get it fixed.

Seriously stoked with this free application. Was having issues paying for Duet Display and this popped up suggested below, worked perfectly and wirelessly - all for free. What more could you ask for? Latency is pretty low and I have really no complaints.

Not working
The app crashes all the time, it stops working and you have to figure out why all the time, at times it messes up the entire configuration of your pc. Beware to always look for the updates of the PC version although not even with the upgrades you will make it work. It’s free after all but it could be better. I wouldn’t mind giving donations so that they can fix it

Better than others
For an iPad Pro I specifically bought to use as a second screen. This app works the best out of all the others I tried including duet. Duet does not even support the native resolution of iPad Pro 2018+. But this app still had a lot of lag. So ended up being very hard to use as a REAL second screen.

I have no idea why this app isn't on top productivity apps.
This is far better than duet display, and it doesn't even need any other dongles to make it work. But the keyboard support should be added.

Hackers lunch. No password protection on computer
I really wanted to use this but then I realized that there is no password protection or device verification on the computer…Anyone with any device within range can log in to your computer without you knowing if this software is running. SUPER insecure. Don’t know how this was overlooked. Do not download if you value your life.
