EDIT =========== Thanks everyone for supporting duet and Product Hunt for building such an amazing community! I am honored to say we were nominated for Mac app of the year for Product Hunt! Check it out here! https://www.producthunt.com/tech... Hey Product Hunters, I'm Rahul Dewan, and last year I created Duet Display to help power users get more out of their iPad by turning it into an extra display for your Mac. Over the past year, we have worked hard to make it available to more people by optimizing performance and adding Windows support. And now, I'm happy to announce support for the massive iPad Pro. What's New? =============== * iPad Pro Support - The iPad Pro's huge screen boasts 80% more surface area (about the size of a laptop screen), which makes it an incredibly compelling extra display. * Performance - Last year, our most common complaint was high CPU usage. So, we engineered an algorithm with intelligent refresh, reducing CPU by nearly 80% on all iPads, Macs, and PCs. This means a smoother experience for everyone. * Energy Impact - Furthermore we cut the energy requirements of Duet by half, so that you can work anywhere for longer. * Showcasing Duet around the world - The work our customers create with Duet is what drives us to keep improving the product everyday. So, we wanted to show how creators are using Duet in their workflow and life. It took a lot of planning and coordination, but we were lucky to work with some really smart people and it was an incredible experience to shoot. Check above in the media section, and let us know what you think!

I've been following Duet ever since they blew up this time last year. When I saw the iPad Pro was announced I knew it was going to be a game changer for Duet. The new size makes it a perfect second screen and I'm personally very excited to make the switch away from my monitor. I've watched the team hustle hard over the last few weeks / months to make sure compatibility is perfect and I'm really impressed at how quick they've done it! Overall it appears that Duet is running faster across the board so a huge well done guys! P.S. The new ad is STUNNING.

Works surprisingly great on my iPad Pro and mid-2012 MBA, highly recommended - love this app. I was even able to watch movies, in perfect frame rate. I expected at least a little buffering, but worked fine.

Any plans to support 1366x1024 at HiDPI? I'd love to see my iPad Pro be another retina display at native resolution.

@mg Yes. Since the iPad Pro supports USB 3 speeds, we're waiting for compatible Lightning cables to be released. USB 3 is 10X faster than current cables and will greatly simplify bringing the iPad Pro's massive resolution to Duet users.
