    Is virtual tablet S-pen on PC safe? I'm reasonably assured about the part on google play, but I'm not sure about the part from sunnysoft website

    p.s. what apps are there to use my android tablet as a drawing tablet for windows? / a second screen with touchscreen function for windows?

    I've tried splashtop wired, but could not get that to connect even though the tablet is detected in device manager.

    no idea if that app is safe. according to the reviews it is hit and miss. one person did say the got a virus from the app on their pc. so as long as you have an anti-virus program running you should be safe.

    but you might want to try this instead:

    never done it myself, but you can let us know if it works for you or not.

    Thanks, is there a site that you trust to review software like cnet/ pcmag...?

    p.s. can you download the software through the windows store or is that something else? I'm mostly concerned because the non android part seems to be downloaded through a third party site

    No the whole point was to check if the software is safe before installing

    safe? safe from what? hackers? adware? i would think that it is safe. accorfing to the play store it only has permissions to access your wifi, which it will need to be mirrowed to the pc, i do not see anything nefarious about the app.

    Safe from malware
    In order to use you have to install the corresponding program on the computer which is third party and not directly monitored by google play How do you know if the program is safe?

    Even if "approved" by Google for the Play Store they still get dodgy apps getting through. Lots of them! As for Windows, just keep to the usual good practice for installing programs. Good anti-virus, install from known sources etc etc. If you're not happy with the program, don't install it. Simples.
