    I love that it can be used to connect high-end and high-resolution televisions to improve the experience of a video conference, clearly the picture quality is obvious superior than other screen mirror programs. It works fine in conference rooms with specialized equipment and has the great advantage of working wireless, without annoying cords. In my case, the striking thing was when we wanted to connect several devices simultaneously, and Ditto didn't make us look bad, the conference was a resounding success, with an extraordinary image quality. Starting now and into the foreseeable future, we generally utilize this great program. The difficulty in running this program on Apple TV was challenging, since customer support had to be contacted in order to deploy the Ditto tvOS receiver. There was a compatibility problem with our old MDM system and we had to use Jamf Pro, but we also had problems accessing the business account, anyway, thanks to the support it could be resolved. This problem delayed the use of the program for 2 days but it was only a mishap that has been updated our video conferencing system. It is recommended to take a quality step and present your demonstrations on large screens. It has a wide variety of device compatibility, in my case, I've only used it for Apple TV and macOS, but I'm sure it works just as well on Windows, Android and Chrome OS devices. You can also connect simultaneously with several devices. Without much to add, we have a more innovative conference room, refreshed with the technical equipment of the moment, thanks to the assistance of Ditto that controls everything. It feels truly good to see the presentations and reports among our work group, and that we can all greatly appreciate the quality with which the image is viewed on the screen. Hi Bronius! Thank you for your thorough and thoughtful review. We always enjoy hearing that our customers can have high-quality screen sharing in an innovative conference room with Ditto. I appreciate that you were able to work through your challenges with Apple TV. We recently rolled out Jamf Pro support and we want to continue to encourage our customers to deploy Ditto with Jamf Pro. If you run into other issues or have questions, don't hesitate to reach out to our support team.

    Being able to simplify our connections to our displays is very valuable. This narrows down user training and troubleshooting. Deploying the app across all of our displays is fairly straight forward, this provides us with a constant experience for our users. While I haven't used it much I do enjoy the ability to customize the info on the screen. The admin portal is well designed and with the recent update letting you add sites is very helpful managing the rooms. You cannot extend your screen. This alone is enough to reconsider our subscription. Nearly everyone expects the option to extend the screen and would prefer the use of an HDMI cable. The Mac users in our office still prefer to connect directly to the Apple TV as its easier for them and the connection quality is superior. I've noticed latency that can be frustrating to users, I have been unable to identify the cause of this issue, another reason that users are tending to use HDMI. I intend to start testing the connection to windows receivers to see if this resolves some of the issues I have been facing. Figure out screen extending Simplifying connections to our displays keeping our meeting rooms clean, making it easy for users to connect no matter what device they are using. At this point I really only need to create one set of instructions for our users to guide them how to connect. Thank you for your review! It's great that you're enjoying the simplified connections and the updates in our portal. Thank you for the feedback about the extended desktop. I will share this with our team to consider for our product roadmap. I hope we can continue to provide your preferred wireless presentation solution.

    For us, Ditto provides low-effort and usable screen sharing within our community without the IT helpdesk headaches. For us, another key consideration was the cost, as other solutions available for this area are either too high, not 'transparent' or not feasible. Ditto has arguably one of the best cost / benefit ratios out there for cross-platform screen sharing. Ditto was initially hard to come by. It might have been that their marketing was in the early stages, or that we were an early adopter. Other than that, the only other convenience that we have is the download of the application to use it. If you've had the headache and the costs and uncertainty around a shared projection / display platform, seriously consider Ditto. It really is hassle free screen sharing. Hardware required: an AppleTV, an internet connection, connection to a projector and a Ditto subscription! Much less cost / hassle than the competition. Projection of content for mixed platforms (PC / Mac). The main benefit is that it can be done! It puts the competitors to shame, especially at the cost / price point that it sites at. Hi Daniel! Thank you for your review. I love to hear that you are happy with Ditto in your workplace. I hope we can continue to provide your community with easy-to-use and affordable wireless presentation software. We appreciate your support over the past two years!

    No unreasonable requirements for casting device. Ditto works well for our Android and iOS users and is a convenient way for our staff and guests to cast their screens in our conference room TV. We love the easy instruction and UI for getting set up, and sync time is fast. Synchronization with older systems (Windows 7) seems to have some issues, but we're moving away from legacy OS in our environment. Some users are not a fan of having to re-download the application for every cast. Keep your environments up to date. Ditto seems to be updating their software and these updates may create issues with older operating systems. Ditto solves the problem of providing a fast and convenient way to share a screen for a room of users, especially for guests who bring in new devices. Key benefit is the peace of mind of not having to worry about what kind of device a user is using to cast. As long as its a reasonably up to date mobile device or laptop, it will work with our Ditto casting setup. Hi Gustavo! Thank you for your review. I'm happy to hear that Ditto provided an easy-to-use solution for screen sharing in your conference room. We do our best to support as many devices as we can for our customers. I hope we can continue to provide the best wireless presentation solution for your workplace. Thank you for your support!

    This was my first product in the digital signage arena so it was all very fun in the beginning.
    The setup of what was playing on each screen was cumbersome and tedious. The customer service team wasn't receptive to requests for feature changes.

    Copying and pasting are fundamental essentials of computing, but have you ever hit Ctrl+C to copy an item and then accidentally hit Ctrl+C again on some other item and overwritten the original item thus having to go back and recopy it? Who hasn't. Ever had several items to copy from one location to another and had to swap back and forth between applications copying and pasting each one at a time? Again, this is probably familiar to all of us. Well, the lightweight and highly configurable lit...

    I use Ditto at work, but only because it's the only clipboard manager they let me use, as I can't install whatever I want on my work computer. And my goodness, the UX is awful. I can't see how to simply order the clips newest > oldest. I'd like to be able to single-click an entry to put it on the clipboard, but no. I also don't want it to do anything when I double-click a clip other than put it on the clipboard. But no; Ditto also sends its window to the bottom, and brings some other -- rand...

    A few useful tips: + You can select multiple images at a time in the clipboard history (by pressing ctrl + click) and drag & drop them in an application + You can select multiple text items at a time as well, and press ctrl + c and paste them with ctrl + v in an application This application is a productivity booster as you can go copying things in the clipboard and save them later just selecting the items on the list. I couldn't live without it.

    A must have. I think Windows should come with a clipboard manager built-in because it is so convenient and it helps to avoid the frustration of losing what was in the clipboard. Nevertheless, Ditto might not be the most beautiful clipboard manager out there, but it is certainly the most convenient and productive one. Also, it is full of features if you want to tweak everything ;)
