    "Plug it in and it works" does not constitute acceptable installation instructions.

    Using iPad 2, trying to connect to MacBook Air with OS X High Sierra.  Plugged in iPad by USB.  Started Display app on iPad.  Progress indicator just spins.  What needs to be done to make this work?

    Adding comment that this doesn't work for me. The app used to work just fine, its been maybe 6 months since I used it, and today its not working. I made sure to get the latest desktop software, and checked to get the latest iOS app. still doesn't work.

    Worse still, when I tried with the iPad having the app turned on, and then launch the desktop server side, my Mac OS crashes.

    What's going on, need it fixed...

    Sorry about the issue.

    Unfortunately, Apple macOS 10.13.4/5 stop supporting any third-party software to display an extended monitor, the mac will be forced to reboot or crash when the program is being launched. 

    Please be assured that we have made this issue the highest priority. We plan to release the new build that includes the fixes in July. 

    Thanks for your understanding while it's investigated.

    Just purchased it. Computer crashed. Found this list. I don't remember seeing a warning about lack of compatibility on latest MacOS. Might want to put that up there for people to know. So I guess until the build, I can't use this software. Do you have a beta version that we can try like you did for the business side?

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The testing should start recently. We'll keep you updated when the beta version is available for testing.

    Thank you.

    Is the beta version available yet by any chance? If so, could I please have the download link? I'd like to test it. 

    I am having the same issue with macOS High Sierra: I can mirror the desktop, but not extend it.

    Thanks!

    Same issue here - Wired XDisplay mirrors on OS X 10.13.6, but does not extend. I already have Splashtop personal for that. Would it be possible to send the beta to me as well?
