Superscreen uses high performance hardware communications circuitry and layouts with a specialized Wi-Fi/BT mesh along with proprietary software (all patents pending), on IEEE 802.11 protocols to transmit and receive data between the Superscreen and your smartphone.
Transmission includes all standard touch events, while reception includes any and all reception inbound or stored on the phone, regardless of how the phone is retrieving the information (LTE carrier, Wi-Fi, connected to a 3rd device, in storage, or otherwise).Last updated:

4) Boom! Superscreen will control your phone within 100’ (obstructions are no problem). No phone carrier contracts, no Wi-Fi access, and no cords.Last updated:
No. Superscreen is compatible with the newest 98% of existing Apple and 97% of existing Android phones, and will be fully compatible going forward.
Superscreen is currently compatible with:
- Android 4 or newer
- iOS 8 or newerLast updated:
For Android, Superscreen sets the phone to sleep for applications (e.x. when watching a show on Netflix), and it takes the phone out of sleep only for system applications such as settings, alarm clock, plus games, then returns it back to sleep.
For iOS Superscreen automatically takes the screen brightness to zero, and does not put to sleep.Last updated:
Given the very different functional differences between Android, we take a different approach with iOS. At this moment, we do have Superscreen working with iOS, and we expect to be light years from where we are now by December. However, here is a breakdown of what is possible with iOS right now.
In the case of the 2.1M apps published in the App store that access remote web based information, these will work seamlessly with Superscreen. This is the same with iOS system apps. We do this by implementing a custom UI on top of the iOS platform. Because the Superscreen app is a custom iOS UI in which we reimplement the user’s apps inside, it has full access to the user’s screen for transferring raw data urls and internal commands.
Apple has a very secure platform for their mobile devices. For us to get access for the user to control apps, the app needs to be selected on the mobile device first. Once the selected app is opened on your phone, the interface is rebuilt on the Superscreen, where all haptic touches and key inputs are recorded and then sent back as raw data to your phone.
For any apps that are not supported by Superscreen, we will provide a Superscreen SDK that developers can implement to function with Superscreen.Last updated:
You have zero limitations to your phone while using Superscreen, including picking up phone calls.
You cannot fully power off your phone and continue to use the Superscreen as it is driving your phone behind the scenes.Last updated:
Yes you can! We call this "dual-mode".
So as an example, you will be able to watch a movie on your Superscreen while answering emails on your phone.Last updated:
Yes it can. Superscreen has zero effect on your phone's connection to the outside, be it Wi-Fi, Radio, Carrier, cord, etc.Last updated:
Superscreen has zero affect on your data plan. We are not using your carrier to transmit this data so nothing is owed to them.
Also, most “Unlimited Data” plans do not include the use of Hot Spots or data tethering between phone and device. Superscreen is able to use your phone’s LTE/4G data or Wi-Fi connection without sacrificing your unlimited data package.Last updated:
Way less than if you were actively using your phone in-hand, and slightly more than if your phone was just hibernating. Superscreen is equipped with its own high powered battery which last 12 hours.Last updated:
Not at this time. Superscreen can currently only connect to one device at a time.
However, you can un-pair and re-pair with a new device at any time (e.x. you upgrade your phone).Last updated:
Apps have different aspect ratio layouts. They know the dimensions of the screen they are on, and they can adjust accordingly.
So while technically you are using the phone version of the app, Superscreen will scale and adjust the aspect ratio to align with Superscreen specs. Images for all apps other than video will fill the screen in the production model. So it will feel like the tablet version. Video is played at the aspect ratio of the video, just as on your TV or other devices.Last updated:
No. Superscreen has an inventive set-up which allows it to play video and other content at the originally produced resolution, independent of your phone. So for instance if you have a 4k video going into your standard res phone, while using your 2k Superscreen, the video will be shown at 2k, not the lower resolution of your phone.Last updated:
Our page is showing prototypes, not finished production models. Aspect ratio and certain other features are not perfect on the prototypes as they will be in the production model.

No Superscreen will not be compatible with MacOS or Windows. Although, we would love to explore this functionality in the future with your support!
Superscreen will be compatible with smartphone devices running iOS8+ or Android 4+Last updated:
Yes! We are working through the details now. However, we already know it is possible to connect to your smartwatch to display and control apps on a larger screen.Last updated:
Superscreen is the first device that allows you to easily use your phone apps, on a stunning large portable display, at the touch of a button. It is a new way to experience the digital world which you have set-up on your phone. It does everything a tablet can do, everything a casting product can do, PLUS everything in your phone in one affordable great looking device.
It is a patent pending product and creates a new exciting "superphone" category in the mobile high technology space.Last updated:
Superscreen offers a lot of unique differences in hardware and software, but in the end it is all about the better user experience. Here are a few of the many differences:
1. Less expensive upfront costs ($600 is the least expensive Apple with the same size and performance), and zero monthly costs as you do not need a Carrier contract.
2. Do not need to duplicate your apps on a second device. It saves time and thought process to remember what device has which apps and set-up. It reduces a big pain point that tablet users have, having to keep their devices in sync with each other.
3. Do not need Wi-Fi, Carrier contract, or cords. Turn it on anywhere and it works as long as your phone is ‘on’ and within 100’
4. Faster than Wi-Fi tethering because Superscreen is working off your phone feed with no perceived delay.
5. Use all your favorite bluetooth devices and accessories-- headphones, keyboards, and even stylus (yes, including Apple Pencil).
6. For Gaming you do not need to worry about where you left off as with Superscreen your position is bookmarked. So if you’re playing a game on your iPhone, then go to the same game on your iPad you are back at level 1, but not with Superscreen.Last updated:
Superscreen and mirroring are not competing technologies, but rather both great technologies serving entirely different purposes. Mirroring apps and devices are terrific for mirroring shows from your phone on a really large screen, like your TV.
Superscreen does not mirror, but rather transmits raw data bidirectionally to and from your phone using new and unique technology. Superscreen has a 10” Full HD touch screen display which allows you to drive and use all the apps from your phone just like you are accustomed, all the while giving you a larger more vibrant screen to work from.Last updated:
Superscreen’s hardware and software are entirely different than other devices that allow you to mirror your phone. Superscreen does not just mirror your phone. Rather, it allows full access and control of your phone’s operating system and data connection on a 10” HD touch screen.
Superscreen is compatible with the newest 98% of Apple and newest 97% of Android devices. Whereas syncing apps are only compatible to SOME models of a SOLE manufacturer. For example with SideSync you must own two Samsung devices, and then they must be certain models within the Samsung family which are compatible for use with the app. With Superscreen, it doesn’t matter what phone you are using, nor does it factor into your decision when upgrading your phone because it works with all the newest models. You can use it with your iPhone, then switch to an Android, no problem.
Superscreen does not require any Wi-Fi, any data contract, or any cords. Push of a button and you’re running.Last updated:
Superscreen uses an asymmetric cryptographic algorithm to ensure that no one can access your information as it is being bi-directionally transmitted between your phone and your Superscreen. Your Superscreen app creates 2 keys, 1 of which is held on the app in your phone, and the other of which is sent to your Superscreen hardware device.
The first key is made up of a modulus and an encryption exponent (securely stored on user’s phone Superscreen app), while the second key contains the same modulus with a decryption exponent (securely stored on the user’s Superscreen hardware device), such that the keys have a common element in the modulus, with different elements in their exponents.
Additionally, Superscreen uses Wi-Fi Direct connection such that the owner’s Superscreen and phone operate in a security domain that is independent from any infrastructure network. The user has protection of the security features certified under the WPA2, but is managed separately from the security system in the AP-based network (home, enterprise, and hotspot). Based on the IEEE 802.11i standard, WPA2 provides government grade security by implementing the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) FIPS 140-2 compliant AES encryption algorithm and 802.1x-based authentication.
Publically available data streamed from the net, not specific to the user, does not warrant and will not be encrypted. For this public data we will SALT cryptography.Last updated:
Superscreen runs a mDNS (multicast Domain Name Service) search to find your phone and then verifies encrypted keys as discussed in the security FAQ to be sure it is specifically your phone.Last updated:
First your Superscreen app on your phone has a kill feature that you can use to disable the connection between your Superscreen and your phone if your Superscreen is lost. Also remember that Superscreen is not meant to be used beyond 100’, after which the 100% signal strength attenuates, so someone needs to be in your vicinity to even think of using.
Your Superscreen also comes with unlocking security options that you set as you wish. These include a pin, pattern, fingerprint, and if you wish no security (simple swipe to open). So it’s much more difficult for someone to access your information through Superscreen than it is through your smartphone alone because ALL the following factors must be met (1) lose Superscreen, (2) but it’s still close-by your phone, (3) break into your security option as set by yourself on your Superscreen, one of which such option is your fingerprint, (4) you don’t use the ‘disable’ option from the smartphone still in your possession.Last updated:
The Beta-access tier is designed for anyone who wants first access to test the production model of Superscreen. These are the units that we will be shipping to press 3 months before our "official" market launch.
As a Beta-access user, we will be looking to you to help us test the units to make sure the user experience is on point. The hardware will be finalized and production ready. However, there might be bugs that you will help us uncover. If there are any bugs, you will receive a software patch for your device. You will not need an entirely new device.Last updated:
No, Superscreen does not function as a standalone tablet.Last updated:
