Not as useful as expected.
What it doesn't tell you, and the reason I bought it, is that it WON'T work with movies bought / rented from the iTunes Store. It What it doesn't tell you, and the reason I bought it, is that it WON'T work with movies bought / rented from the iTunes Store. It comes up with a message (in my case in an iPad Mini) to the effect that the film cannot be played because the attached display isn't authorised to view "protected" films. It DOES work though with downloads from BBC iPlayer. …

Has anyone used this with slideshark? Can you use notes view and have just the slide view projected, or does it ONLY mirror the ipad?
- Asked by Barbara F from Indianapolis
SlideShark gives you the option to view your PowerPoint presentation (including all graphics and ani SlideShark gives you the option to view your PowerPoint presentation (including all graphics and animations) in full screen or in a notes view where you can see the slide notes, a roll of upcoming slides and a window showing the slide playing through with all the animations (still controlled by clicks/taps), a bit like presenter view on PowerPoint. When you connect your iPad to a second monitor, the second monitor will only ever show the full screen presentation show, but you have the option on the iPad to have a mirror (full screen) or presenter view. You can't see the SlideShark menu on the second screen either, so you can move between different presentations really easily.
For me, it's a superb app and one of the main reasons for getting an iPad. It works really seamlessly, and you can use your iPhone or iPod Touch as a remote too, so you don't even need to hold the iPad. …
