Excellent USB connection problem has been solved with update, so I want to increase my review start rating to 5. Nice job

Worried about the reviews but works on my Nexus (2013) 7 - Too high res... Ok so I've used and tried various apps like this FOREVER. I still carry my iPad 1 around during meetings just for this need. Well my son now uses that old beast and now I have a (2013 / 2014) Nexus 7, great device and needed to find a new second screen application. I read the reviews and while I'm running Windows 8 (not 8.1) on a 2011 i5 Macbook Pro 13" I decided to give it a try. The USB connection and Wifi works, USB is faster and heck it charges my Nexus so :) Anyway there is screen latency, obviously, but these apps are designed for putting up instructions or reading / checking email. The ONLY problem I'm having and I may just be missing something is on my Nexus 7 the resolution is set at (and can't change it in Windows Settings or anywhere on the app, that I can find) 1920x1104 (horizontal) or 1104 x 1920 (vertical). So it's super hi-res, so high I CAN'T SEE ANYTHING! Ok so It's a good problem to have, but I can't figure out how to downscale the resolution, so minus 1 star for now...

Usb? The USB does not work at all. The WiFi works fine. You need to fix this as soon as you can. And besides isn't the USB faster?

Not as bad as said I ve worked with a Galaxy Tab S and a Macbook air for several hours now. Configuration is very simple if you actually read the instructions. I had absolutely no issue in extending the monitor. 1 star minus is for the resolution problem, but this may be a Mac os issue. I simply cannot get a clear resolution on the tablet also if I lower it. Since I mostly use it for the terminal this is not a very big issue.
