Wireless connection  Danni ads  3 star

It’s a shame yo have to pay extra to enable wireless monitor . This is not made clear when you are purchasing

Stephen Hamilton

Useful app and well supported  Stephen Hamilton  5 star

I use Duet every working day. It is super useful to me, essentially giving me a secondary display for my MacBook Pro. Most impressive is the professional and prompt support when I recently had a problem (which was caused by an old MacOS version).

Nvidia Drivers Broken  the real xspance  1 star

Can I please have a refund? This broke the drivers on my windows 10 pro laptop. Nvidia GTX 1060. Thanks


Perfect effect for compatible with iPad Pro  周XEON  5 star

This is AMAZING performance on iPad Pro after update, with full screen include circle corner ,and each pixel could perfectly fit on screen, every letters is clear, good job!


Apps crashes  Abiham2001  2 star

Whenever I want to launch a app that opens with a GTX graphics card, the app crashes and freezes the screen. If you want to use a graphics card, don’t buy duet. I do like the app for productivity and runs well on apps that doesn’t use a graphics card.


Works great, except for driver issues  Lexacutable  3 star

As a second display for watching video or simple drawing input, it works really well and is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately the PC drivers for video output cause certain apps to become unable to access hardware acceleration, including Discord, slowing them to a crawl. This was a total deal breaker for me :( Wish I’d known before shelling out the cash.


Amazing App!  Fuzzbyroo  5 star

Clearly a lot of work has gone into this app. It's awesome to be able to use my iPad as a second screen! I haven't encountered any bugs or issues yet


Not what I thought I was getting  ljchilin  1 star

Bought the app to use the apple pen and move photoshop to the iPad screen. While I can click buttons (like file/edit) with the pen, it won’t work on the page. Apparently that only works if you pay a subscription. Resolution is also reduced on iPad. :(


Not for PC  ShinotaSamuraiWarrior  1 star

Just having the program on my PC caused it to fatally crash any program I tried to run. Only after uninstalling and restarting my computer did the issue cease.


Duet air is bad  spiritpine  1 star

Please don’t subscribe Duet Air as it doesn’t work. I tried it many times with my iPad, Mac Pro and iMac. Always has connection error. Contacted support, tried different solutions, neither of them worked. I asked for refund and they sent me a long apple store instruction on the first page says subscription are non refundable. I think the best way to achieve the function is to buy a surface pro. Apple is sinking. There are no more innovation or surprise anymore, it’s just an expensive quality metal box.


Had to restore windows  Cromwelp  1 star

After I installed the software on my Razer Blade laptop with Windows 10, it wouldn’t boot into Windows and wouldn’t restore properly. I literally had to run safe-mode, hack through the reg to enable the Install manager service, and uninstall Duet on Windows to boot normally back in. To make sure it was Duet causing the problem, I installed it again. Same thing. As with other people, there’s clearly a driver problem. Maybe to do with dedicated and discreet graphics cards, but maybe not. Clearly the thing has potential and I bought it despite the bug reports assuming they’d have fixed them up by now, but I was wrong.


Not great  Goran99  2 star

I really hate to leave negative feedback but after paying and spending far too much time setting it up and trying to get it working I am giving up and going with their competitor.


Doesn't work  Martynet  1 star

I bought this app because I used to use iDisplay app before but it doesn't work anymore... So I decided to invest few bucks into Duet and it doesn't work either. Connecting my 12.9" iPad Pro to my 27" iMac to extend the screen and it just doesn't work. What's going on?


Extremely disappointed.  AEsmerio  1 star

It works well if you dont have an graphic card on your laptop. I've GForce m960, and all the games can't be played after install the windows drive to use Duet Display. There's plenty of forums that people complain about the same issue. The way to fix it is uninstall the Duet drive. That's so b frustrating. I've bought Ten 1 grips as Duet site recommended and i can't use them. All my 60 (iPad grip support + Duet Display license) are completely waste of money.


Rubbish  The EBG  1 star

Continually crashed and was slow and clunky when it managed to run. Trash.


Half false advertising  Yinks23  1 star

This app is a half false advertisement yes the said share ur screen but it only work for from pc to iPad or iPhone not for your phone to pc that was a not cool I paid for this app and I did not get wat I paid for pls change your videos and be for specific sometimes pls😡😡😡🤨


Not for illustrator and photoshop.  KrazeD_  3 star

This is a great idea for an app it does work but not exactly what I wanted. I already have two displays so I wasn’t really getting this app for another it was more wishful thinking. A Windows “Astropad” replacement it is my bad I should have done a but more research on the app before buying. I have been testing this app on both Photoshop and Illustrator and its not great. Maybe I’m missing something but it’s very unresponsive. Doesn’t recognize pen pressure in Illustrator. Now for someone that is just looking for a second display this is a good app but personally I vote against buying it for using applications. I can’t not speak for how well this works with Mac applications but for windows very under the bar.

TM Goff

Great app  TM Goff  5 star

Great app. Does what it sets out to do. And does it well. Is the pro version worth it for iPad pencil support? Yes. It's great. I wish it had a wireless option, but I use my Wadom wired. This is better.

Micheal O

Exceptional App  Micheal O  5 star

Possibly my favourite app ever. Must have for anyone that is used to dual screens and wants to be productive on the move. Then add in the fact that your second screen is touch enabled. Just amazing.


Fantastic - I can work on 4 screens now  Migo321  5 star

Mobile office: laptop plus iPad 2 screens, office setup: 4 screens: 2 external monitors, HP spectre + iPad underneath.
