    Hi guys,

    For the life of me I can't find an android app that will allow me to use the Nexus 9 as extra real estate (eg as an additional OS X Desktop). Plenty of apps allow you to mirror the Mac display but not extend it in this way. Help!

    Thanks, Pete

    The reason you can't find any is because there are none. (And probably won't be.)

    I see at least two apps in the Google Play store that does this. The first one is called iDisplay and the second app is called Air Duet Screen-Second Display. iDisplay costs money but Air Duet is free.

    I tried a similar app a few years ago but it was too laggy back then. Let me know how these apps work for you after you try them.

    One is Windows only and the other no good. I also tried SplashTop and it simply failed to connect to the Mac. Woeful!

    What are you talking about? You're saying someone is disallowed from writing a miracast server on OS X, or even their own protocol? Untrue otherwise teamviewer etc could not possibly work, no?
