It all started with me wanting to use my iPad as a secondary screen for my Macbook. But I found that it is already outdated to use 'Sidecar' - a MacOS built in feature for that purpose. I tried upgrading both of them, but it didn't help. The only option left was to buy a new iPad and even new Macbook, which I did not want to do. I also have a Windows PC and sometimes I need to use my iPad as second screen for it as well.
I tried to look for FREE solutions on internet, but I could not find anything that would fit my expectations. Besides, all methods using free software for screen sharing I found, were different for Windows, Mac and Linux. I got very confused about it. Then I got an idea of creating Deskreen.
I decided to make it free and open-source to help people to solve this problem. Deskreen works the same for Windows, MacOS and Linux.
People nowadays are buying new devices very often and may have an old tablet, phone or laptop that they stopped using. If your old tablet, phone or laptop is still able to run a browser, you can start using it as a secondary screen for your laptop with Deskreen.
It is free and open source, forever.
Deskreen is a free and open source desktop app that turns any device with a web browser into a secondary screen for your computer. It is created with ElectronJS so it's cross-platform and available for Linux / Windows / MaxOS. Can be downloaded on deskreen.co
Features of Deskreen:
Note: app is not Code-Signed yet, code signing is pricy. Any donations are highly encouraged.
