I just found this Geek.com video review.
The best thing about this, is that you can have a very competent and mobile "dual monitor" setup, with just your Macbook and an iPad – all in your bag.
Very much looking forward to this launching if it works well. I've been using Air Display to use my iPad as a second monitor when on the road and it's useful — but laggy enough to be annoying.
Having it running as a USB monitor would be soooooooper.
Does anyone know what kind of stand is being used in that hero image?

I'm curious, does this work over wifi or USB only? All of the photos show it plugged into the host computer.
I think it's USB only, although I'm not sure. I assumed this is what reduces the lag.
I think it uses USB. I think it uses PeerTalk to communicate.
I really, really, really hope it gets approved and that Apple is ok with the method used, but I suspect this will get rejected. Yes, there’s other apps on the store that use PeerTalk, but nothing high profile, as far as I’m aware.
Hey Ryan, Duet is USB only.
If you don’t mind me asking, do you think Apple’s ok with your approach? It’d be pretty good news if they are. :)
I don't know anything about PeerTalk. What would the issue be?
Ooh, this will help with mobile design. I love LiveView but it does have its shortcomings
It’s worth noting that all apps that use Wi-Fi to communicate can also use USB via Personal Hotspot (I’ve written up some info on how to use USB via Personal Hotspot here).
Looks awesome, does anyone know if there is a product like this available for android tablets? Looking to resurrect a screen.
I downloaded the app and I tried it. It installs a Mac Helper Tool and then restarts your computer. The next step indicates to download the Duet iOS app and then connect via lightning cable. I've searched the app store with "duet" or "duet display" or "duetdisplay" but nothing has come up. Their page also doesn't include a link to the app store. Kind of a let down actually. Was really looking forward to this product.
I can't remember where I read it, but I think the launch is tomorrow so the iOS app should be available then.
I reached out to the team and they got back to me. The app hasn't been approved by the App Store and should be released soon. They will most likely pull the automatic download knowing that it might lead to a bad user experience.
Aaah. Thanks for the info!
Sorry for the confusion, the article was published ahead of the launch and we are still waiting in line to be approved for the app store.
Didn't realise this was posted earlier, even after searching. D'oh!
Interesting app to watch, though.
