A trio of indie developers has unveiled a groundbreaking app named “Splitscreen,” designed to revolutionize the functionality of Apple’s Vision Pro. Mathijs Kadijk, Tom Lokhorst, and Jordi Bruin have collaborated to create an app that extends the capabilities of the Vision Pro, allowing users to expand their Mac desktop into a virtual multi-display environment.

Enhancing Productivity with Splitscreen

Splitscreen enables users to extend their existing Mac desktop to the Vision Pro, effectively simulating a multi-monitor setup within the device’s spatial computing environment. The app caters to multitaskers and professionals who require additional screen real estate for enhanced productivity.

Seamless Integration and Performance

At launch, Splitscreen offers seamless integration with the Vision Pro, leveraging the best available network connection between devices. While performance may vary depending on network conditions, the app provides a 15-minute free session for users to test its capabilities on their network. For uninterrupted usage, users can opt for a one-time in-app purchase priced at $20.

Features and Future Development

Splitscreen currently supports a resolution of 1920×1080 and allows for the connection of up to two displays. However, the developers are actively working on expanding support for additional resolutions and displays in future updates. The app aims to cater to diverse professional workflows, offering enhanced multitasking capabilities for tasks such as coding and research.

User Feedback and Testing Phase

During its testing phase on TestFlight, Splitscreen garnered feedback from over 1,500 testers, contributing to improvements in performance and pricing strategy. The extensive testing process ensured that the app meets the needs of its target audience and delivers a seamless user experience.

Availability and Pricing

Splitscreen is now available as a free download on the App Store, with the option for users to unlock unlimited sessions through a one-time in-app purchase. The app’s accessibility and affordability make it a valuable tool for users seeking to maximize productivity on the Vision Pro.
