Ever wish you had an extra display for your Mac or Windows computer? There's an app for that! With Air Display, you can use your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch as a wireless display, to extend your computer desktop.
вЂњHave you ever looked at your iPad and thought, That would make a great second monitor for my computer!вЂ™?вЂќ вЂ”Wall Street Journal
вЂњThe app worked like a charm by providing more screen real estate.вЂќ вЂ”USA Today

вЂЁвЂЁ Air Display's performance is extremely responsive, employing a unique dynamic compression algorithm. On a typical Wi-Fi network, mouse cursor refreshes are indistinguishable from a wired mouse.
вЂЁвЂЁ Air Display works in both landscape and portrait configurations. Just rotate your screen, and it automatically reconfigures.вЂЁвЂЁ
Air Display makes a laptop much more useful. Adding the iPad's 1024x768 display nearly doubles the screen area of a laptop or netbook.вЂЁвЂЁ
Air Display not only gives you a wireless computer screen extender, but also works as a tablet input device. You can use your finger to draw directly on the screen's surface. Try it with a calculator, painting tool, or music control surface! Simple gestures allow you to operate the right mouse button and scroll wheel.вЂЁвЂЁ
You can connect to Air Display from both Mac and Windows. And because it's a universal app, it works on an iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch.
вЂЁвЂЁ When you rotate the screen, or disconnect and reconnect, your windows are automatically repositioned appropriately, so you don't have to drag them back to the iOS device.
вЂЁвЂЁAir Display provides a keyboard and mouse input on the iOS device. вЂЁвЂЁAir Display supports video-out to your TV or Monitor, when used with an appropriate adapter cable.
Some great uses for Air Display:вЂЁвЂЁ
- Fill your Air Display screen with your utility apps, like iChat, Mail, iCal, and Calculator.
- Graphic design: Make Photoshop and Illustrator usable on your laptop by putting your tool palettes on the iOS screen.
- Music: Use your iOS screen as a wireless control surface for Logic or Pro Tools.вЂЁ
- Programming: Use the extra display area for such auxiliary development tools as Console, Terminal, and the Debugger.вЂЁ
- Business: Move all of your iWork and Office palettes and inspector windows onto Air Display, and let your document fill the screen.вЂЁ
- Share: Use your iOS device's video adapter to share your screen on TVs, monitors and projectors in your boardroom or classroom.вЂЁ
