ScreenRecycler for Mac1.39

24 December 2018

Use any networked computer as additional display (beta).

What is ScreenRecycler for Mac

Note: ScreenRecycler is no longer under development, and it is no longer available for sale.

ScreenRecycler allows you to use your other computer as a second monitor.

Many Mac users have a second computer sitting right next to their main computer on their desk including a nice display. ScreenRecycler now enables you to use this spare computer as second display for your Mac. You can even use an idle machine for that purpose.

It's like a dual monitor setup without the need to buy an additional monitor. Just start ScreenRecycler on your Mac then connect to ScreenRecycler via VNC from your second machine.

Recycle your old Mac and Windows machines !

This app is a real gem to have around. Works extremely well, except in Yosemite there is a bug in WindowServer that Apple has yet to resolve that is causing some performance problems. ScreenRecycler itself is just fine, but Apple is dropping the ball here in OS X 10.10.0 and even 10.10.x. If you use this app, please submit a bug report or feedback to let Apple know that we very much need them to fix WindowServer.

Nice one. Would be very nice if driver also support 1600x900 virtual resolution. I have such (Windows) notebook which I want to use as remote display but I have to add scaling or use smart zoom.

I bought this application so I could mirror the screen of my MacBook for the viewing pleasure of the members of our small users group. Due to the fluctuation between the Dollar and the Euro, I had to pay a few bucks more than is stated on this page. Oh well... My one quibble, though it's not a deal breaker, is that my Keynote presentations don't display AT ALL on my remote screen. I have to convert them to PDF in order to present them to the group. I don't use any visual effects, so that's no biggie.

Great piece of software. I use it on stage while performing with other musicians - they can see the settings of their effects etc. running on my macbook pro wirelessly from the other side of the stage using another laptop. Much easier than bringing another display to gigs.

fantastic implementation, no problem to set up...i only wish there was a way to have the program demand higher system resources for faster performance. i love that it normally doesn't take too many resources, but sometimes i don't mind if i can't run as many applications or if my network slows down a bit. that said, i've been waiting for over a year for new apple displays to come out and while my 17 inch g5 imac isn't a 23 inch cinema display 20 bucks is a great deal to get more screen space without buying any more kit. performance on a macbook C2D 2.2 is great, performance on a mini CD 1.8 is great too...really nice that i can start the program through screen sharing on the imac g5 and then switch my keyboard/mouse to the mini and have a display for my previously headless mac mini. the only other issue is that there is not an easy way to find student pricing, but on a 25 dollar application you're very likely to come out ahead without student pricing...unless you can pick up a display for 20 bucks.
