    I'm trying to work out which is the best Remote Desktop / screen sharing app.
    Effectively using the iPad Pro as a screen.

    My setup:
    Mac Mini
    iPad Pro

    Should work over Wifi
    (with minimal lag).

    Must also work over USB / Lightning
    (with no lag for proper work).

    Preferably work with an iPad keyboard
    (to give the option of using it instead of a Mac keyboard linked to the Mac mini).

    Possibly also be able to work out of the LAN (as well as within LAN to use remotely over the Internet as well as within the house).

    Have a completely clean screen (with no interruptions on screen so it appears exactly like a normal monitor).

    Support different resolutions (to use retina or scaled resolutions).

    Current contenders:

    Duet Display

    Wifi: No
    USB: Yes
    iPad Keyboard: No
    WAN: No
    Clean Screen: Yes
    Resolutions: Yes
    Also acts as Monitor: Yes

    Air Display 3
    Wifi: Yes
    USB: Yes
    iPad Keyboard: Yes?
    WAN: No
    Clean Screen: Yes
    Resolutions: Yes
    Also acts as Monitor: Yes

    Wifi: Yes
    USB: No
    iPad Keyboard: Yes
    WAN: Yes
    Clean Screen: Yes
    Resolutions: No
    Also acts as Monitor: No

    Microsoft Remote Desktop
    Chrome Remote Desktop

    TeamViewer ?

    Although it's gone buggy on me - showing 'double' cursors now and I can't work out why.

    I couldn't get screens to work from outside the home. I didn't play very long as Teamvieer worked fine at the time

    You should check out Screens. It's a great app.
