      Unaware of limitations before purchasing

I wish I had known this before purchasing the connector. The Apple Store description says the connector will display slideshows and movies, but I didn't realize that was it...

      Sending mine back because it doesn't enable mirroring.

      Once again I get suckered into buying an overpriced iPhone or iPad AV connector because Apple cleverly omits the fact that it only works with certain apps. Don' Once again I get suckered into buying an overpriced iPhone or iPad AV connector because Apple cleverly omits the fact that it only works with certain apps. Don't they realize that people buy these accessories mostly to do demos of apps, or to mirror whatever's on their device's screen? This basic scenario does not work with this adapter. I found that it only works when playing video, or if you're a developer and you write special code in your app to support an external screen. So buyer beware...

      Very limited!

      Limited to certain apps and even movies that were purchased through the iTunes store are blocked from displaying. Apple should be more specific about this!

      Doesn't work on iPad 2

      I teach iPad classes to adults. I've had iOS 8 since it came out. Suddenly my projection won't work anymore... I'm not paying another 30€ for a 0,30€ cable. T I teach iPad classes to adults. I've had iOS 8 since it came out. Suddenly my projection won't work anymore... I'm not paying another 30€ for a 0,30€ cable. Two of my students have already switched to my Android classes after my anti Apple rant ;D
