      iDisplay vs Duet Display opinions
      Some users think iDisplay is a great alternative to Duet Display, some don't.
      It works as long as the computer you are trying to extend and the Apple/Android device is connected to the same WiFi network. The downside is that it is not as smooth than duet display (but iDisplay is wireless nonetheless)
