Low resolution app on PC compared to Mac?

I have a iMac (2012) and a surface book 2 laptop (new). Installed airdroid on both for my new galaxy s9+.

Has anyone found that the PC version of airdroid looks awful? Super low resolution and grainy / blurry?

It looks totally normal, crisp and clean on my mac.

Is there any way to change this? I searched the settings and could not find a resolution setting for PC. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

Thank you for your feedback.

Because the Mac's screen is retina screen so it resolution is super. So when you use Windows 10 to use AirMirror will feel it has low resolution.

users must be on pc ! its pc that they should mantain a high resolution theme ! cause if this was vice versa it would have made sense!

Have never faced this issue on an iMac. been using it for over 3 years now. Please check your resolution settings to find out who's the actual killer.

Why to launch apps in non-Retina resolution

For most people, this is a question of why you would actually want to do this in the first place. After all, you just spent a bunch of money on your fancy Mac, and you don’t want to sacrifice viewing quality because the Retina display looks so nice.On the other hand, there are a number of reasons why you may want to launch an app in standard resolution, rather than in Retina resolution; for example:
  • To troubleshoot video card problems
  • To better accommodate an external display
  • To reduce impact on system resources
  • To reduce graphics card heat output
  • To reduce problems if an app has a bug in Retina resolution mode
  • And more…
While I understand most apps work without a hitch, it’s good to know that it’s possible to launch your apps in their native resolution mode. So without further ado, let’s discuss how you can do it.

Low Resoultion App on PC compared to Mac

  • To troubleshoot video card problems

  • And more…
When it comes to most modern Macs, they come equipped with ultra high-resolution displays known as Retina displays.These displays are the same size as standard displays but come with much denser pixel-per-inch (PPI) specifications than your average display.
